@akama - You have the Kraken x72, I have the x62. Are you able to control the fan speed? I can't seem to adjust any of my fans on bios F40.

I can manually adjust the speeds within CAM, but the performance profile doesnt work, it never ramps up the fans.

X570 Master is literally twice as potent as X370 Gaming K7 / Gaming 5. Fin area is massively increased , the PWM puts out 12 phases to CPU (not doubled, direct) instead of 6 and powerstages are 50A IR3556 instead of 40A IR3553.

The X370 K7 / Gaming 5 were adequate (on par with other X370/X470 except for the STRIX -F which came much later) but not stellar for 8 cores due to the cooling solution being adapted from Z270 sans heatpipe. The NvMe SSD M.2 slot is PCIE 3.0 x4 similar to X470 boards, however X470 added a second M.2 with PCIE 2.0 x4 (a feature of X370 Taichi besides power delivery that set it apart from the rest of the boards).

If you do decide to upgrade your board that is probably one of the best options. The low end X570 boards are mostly an improvement in cooling until you get to the $200-250 range.

AMD has stated the spec for X370 boards was for 95W CPUs while X470 and X570 are specced for 105W CPUs. The main difference on X570 is PCIE 4.0 and also the manufacturers mostly upgraded power delivery in preparation for 16 core CPUs.

Dont have a 3xxx but had problems with F40 with the 2700, before I couldn't set the multiplier without getting a boot/post loop, with the F41c, can set multiplier, but now cant set the vcore (either static or offset) - oy

Also with voltage, as others mentioned, auto overvolts, normal was stock (at least on a 2700)

Just a quick update, using Ryzen 3600 with the F41c BIOS from support. Meanwhile they sort out the PBO/highvoltage issues, im rolling with 4100MHz with +0.1v on dynamic and Extreme LLC. The vcore sits around 1.1v in the VID stats on hwinfo and 1.3v in SVI2 TFN. Temperature around 60-67c while load.

Guess its not that bad.

Getting 1600 score in cinebench r15.

What are the opinions about using K7 with 3900x/3950x OC with monoblock installed? Technically I wouldn't expect those to pull more than 180W, so assuming about 1.45v, that's 125A/6 = 21A per phase. IR3553 should release about 6W of heat IIRC, so 36W total for 6 phases. I think with a monoblock that's a feasable option (don't really want to drop $200+ for x570 as I could care less about the features).

AlphaC 07-13-2019 06:30 PM

I don't think you'll be pushing 1.45V through a 7nm chip for daily use, most people are running <1.35V (4.2-4.3GHz clocks similar to the R7 2700X) if using all core clocks. Of course, you're better off with precision boost at that point and no overclocking since the single core boost would be higher.


Anyway it should be fine. The ripple will be higher than the new X570 Master though.

DeXel 07-13-2019 06:41 PM

Didn't read about recommended voltages for new chips yet. I guess I'll just get the chip once stable UEFI is out then make a decision for monoblock or x570 motherboard at that point.

Last time I've heard about Infineon were EVGA Classified days... Nice to see them on the consumer boards again with insane channel counts...

Hi guys.

A friend got this bios from support.

It's agesa 1.0.0.3.

You can try it and see if the M2 are working.

Try it at your own risk.

Do you guys think this F41c bios for the gaming k7 will work on the GA-AX370-Gaming 5?
