You need to change the Energy Plan in Windows.How do you get the voltage to automatically lower when the cpu lowers it's clock speed? I have CnQ enabled and the cpu core speeds do drop, but the voltage stays the same. Any ideas?
Hi, can you explain more about Asrock Polychrome? I'm using the X370 PG (Almost identical to Taichi + AQ NIC) and latest BIOS from Asrock Website, but I didn't do anything with Asrock Polychrome (I've installed it a long time ago).Use 6.20A
But go up to 5.80 first and grab asrock polychrome to update the RGB firmware
Sounds stupid, but it's actually important - else you can have readout and sensor bugs
or some other funky sleep issues
Then grab 6.20A and update directly to it
Another option is the 1003ABBA from the Stilt, but that is more experimental than official
I can confirm tho, it was technically the best bios for 1,2,3rd gen compatibility ~ as 1004B has some memory training quircks where you need to fix the short memory training delay = increasing Pattern Bits delay to HEX=A = 10 inside PHY memory controller (AMD CBS/AMD Overclocking)
^ just little bugs on the official 1004B, tho it's a global AGESA issue
* a 2nd one is that loading XMP on 3600MT/s pushes procODT to 60ohm, which is far to much and limits OC capabilities
But again, 1003ABBA is unofficial/experimental, tho officially signed & you lose warranty as it's a X370->X470 Taichi convert with permanent updatepath , with the tool flashrom
Thanks! To be clear: I'm using stock Bios from Asrock Website, I didn't convert my X370 PG to X470, should I use Asrock Pollychrome? (I have Asrock RGB Software installed, the Support page version is really old, look at the screenshot)Ah yes, the PG is identical to the Taichi except that aquantia module
Although the PG bios works on the taichi without issues
polychrome should have an option wheel which checks the installed firmware and at best allows you to update
Else the same installation folder should have a .bat script that will automatically update that controller
It's some awkward nonsense, but it's good to update the firmware if it asks you to do so
Tho on X370->X470 taichi converts,
You have to use the X470 support page polychrome, while not updating the firmware, else it bugs out and you need to flash it back on X370
Usually it's not needed to update it at all , as most boards are still up to date
But installing it once and opening it ~ checking for an update, at least once a year is recommendable
It already had two updates, but people who bought it after mid 2018/Q1 2019 shouldn't need to update yet
Well, you never know how long the board's been sitting on the shelf, soo it remains good practice to sanity check it
Thanks! I've found another post, this time in Youtube ... maybe I'll try ithmmm @LuciferX
I had that oiliness on a B350 Tomahawk, the Taichi and couple of others including FX8xxx lineup
But this oily substance is NOT conductive ~ its just typical from the thick pads , else they wouldn't transfer heat
What i rather think, is that this oily substance increases resistency where'ever it leaks and seems to be very thin fluidy
Else if it was conductive, you would not only short your Mosfets and kill the CPU instantly, but also would be flammable and can cause the PSU to short.
Soo i strongly doubt that it's conductive, but rather the opposite ~ after it flows in the tiniest cracks
Looking at the pictures you send, same as CPUs are not perfectly flat glued, while lapping on the side - so do have chipset's also a tiny air hole bubble
If that fluid flows in there and was a concerning issue, it could make issues ~ but it should never be conductive, else your Mosfets would fry itself and take a lot with them
It would explain that this oily substance get's even thinner and thinner on increased heat load and flows through tiny cracks
But WD-40 conductive cleaner (non oil based) should help. Also if a pad is dry, it would lose thermal conductivity
Yes! We need brave people trying itX470 Zen 3 bios is out
Enjoy converting the X370 Taichi
Hopefully they did not remove the IMC compatibility
Someone has test it~
ASRock Fatal1ty X370 Professional Gaming Is the same board, plus 5gbps nic , I think is ok, maybe somebody can confirmDoes this work with x370 fatality pro gaming?
It won’t be official, no warranties, you need to convert Bios from x370 to x470 using the right bios version and instructions, I don’t know if future updates could be downloaded from asrock website without breaking something...So if it is actually possible to install 5000 series on X370 taichi, won't the manufacturers support it?
This is the post in Chiphell , I dont know how to check if the file is real
I wonder if someone can find this BIOS on Chiphell. No need for flashing to X470.
Same question here, changelog? What about using for example CPU STOCK and XMP on ram? Any problems with that? I'm still using Zen1 with bios 6.20 I think, no OC just XMPFor us noobs, what does working 6.61 on this board means, compatible 5000 series? can we get cpu support list with this bios, is 1000 series supported?
Yeah, but we need to know if older generations will work (or at least a list of supported cpus) , imagine having zen1, you need to update with zen1, then shutdown, put the new zen3, and hope everything is working, unless zen1 can boot with that bios for at least troubleshootingC'mon guys, its written...
"Add Renoir/Vermeer Support"
The only problem now is when Zen3 will be available...
Cries in Zen1 and 3000mhz ramGood point, I will wait until people here are saying the Zen 2 cpu's are stable before moving forward.
And no every 300 series motherboard is “safe” I think, Taichi and PG are really capable of using something like Ryzen 5950, and both are so similar to X470, so ... why not? I wouldn’t use A320 with Zen3 thoI would much rather have a Grey/Blue simple UI BIOS with more hardware support. Not like I'm using it that often, and definitely not to admire the graphics and spinning fan animations.
eh, not like there are many early Ryzen days X370 adopters that are looking to upgrade to a new CPU while still using the same board for almost 4 years.
I imagine many enthusiasts would want to get all the new features of X570/B550 chipsets with their 5000 series Ryzen.
