I apologize if these pics are too big but I am concerned about the voltage jump on bios f41c and I would like to get other people's thoughts on the matter. Here are 2 screenshots, one with the F40 bios and the other with the F41c bios. Both times the pc was idle. I don't understand how the voltages can be so different. I have shown them in 3 different apps. Any thoughts on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

*** Update*** Nevermind, seems like NZXT cam and Corsair iCue software cause wake locks that affect the voltage measurement.

Do you have any more info on this? I don't have either of those programs but I'm still seeing high voltage on 41c like you are.

It could be any software that monitors your CPU that is causing the wakelocks as far as I am aware. I gave up in the end and used Ryzen Master to set all the cores to 4.3Ghz and set the voltage to 1.325v through profile 1 manual setting. I seem to get a decent score of 3100 in Cinebench R15. Idle temps are about 40C, under full load 73C. I have a Kraken x62 but it manually set to 60% fan speed, as the CAM software doesn't fully support Ryzen 3000 yet. Waiting for an update. Got my x570 Aorus Master arriving next week so hopefully, things will be a little different.

Sorry to budge in the 3000 series discussion, but does anyone know which bios has PPT,TDC,and EDC options availiable? I want to try to play a bit with them.

I believe the last BIOS with those numerical PBO options is F23.

I did try the f23, the only option availiable was cTDP...

Maybe it was something earlier such as F20 then

I really don't get it. I've never had this many issues just trying to update a BIOS. In the UEFI it won't let me choose what drive or file I want to update it from and in the @BIOS utility (which I really can't stand) it gives me a logo missing error. Does anyone have a clue what I'm doing wrong? By the way, I'm upgrading my Ryzen 1700 to a 3900x and VRM temps shouldn't be a problem because I'm using EK's monoblock.

You need to upgrade to F31 before F40 and later. Also need to run the firmware update tool.


"1. If you are using Q-Flash Utility to update BIOS, make sure you have updated BIOS to F31 before F40.
2. Before update BIOS to F40, you have to install EC FW Update Tool (B19.0517.1 or later version) to avoid 4DIMM DDR compatibility on 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ CPU."

By "firmware update tool" do you mean going to AMD's website and updating to the lasted chipset driver? After updating to the latest driver, I tried to use QFlash to update to F31. It won't even allow me to look for the folder it's in.
