Well Mega, here's the deal: If you would have paid a little more attention you would have noticed that I said it was a W7 machine. None of the latter mobo's support W7 drivers and therein lies the problem. To get W7 to run on a Rizen board takes a little finesse, as Microsoft has seen fit not to include support for USB 3 on W7. However, Gigabyte and Asus did an end run around MS and provided a driver package that can be shoehorned into the W7 install routine. Somewhere on this board, myself, as well as others, have fully documented the process. Why W7? Well because some of us think it was the best OS ever from MS and is one heck of a gaming platform as long as your games are DX11. Some games like CP77 have been ported over to DX11. As an aside, I have a PC platform for almost all games from DOS, W3.1 and on up. So, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.I wonder why tf when you have superior board such as x570 TaiChi, why you even bother with this old and weak on VRM side Aorus x370 board to use it, instead of selling it, and just use the better board.. As board vendors did take AMD seriously with Zen II and x470, and with ZEN III and x570 they made ultra high end boards for AMD as well such as Aorus x570 Xtreme or MSI GodLike x570. But x370 board were a joke sadly compared to the high end of the intel boards back in 2017 .. My Aorux x370 K7 works like a charm, but still is not on par with the x470 Aorus 7 WI-FI, and is far cry from Aorus Xtreme x570 in terms of build quality, specially VRM and VRM heatsink... But i like the board anyway (aside from the weak 6 phase Vcore VRM, and the crap joke of VRM heatsink, nothing that x2 40mm fans cant fix, but still compare the Aorux x470 7 and Aorux x570 Xtreme or even the master VRM heatsink to ours....) it works great since day 1, it have armored PCIex and MEM slots lot of dual stuff such as BIOS, Audio, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, it have tons of 4 pin PWM fan headers that work great.. Only downside these days is the board is old and have only 1 M2 connector, and it piss me off the VRM is 6+4 4 phases for Vsoc FK that... They should have made the VRM 8+2 (8 real phases, not doublers)
What is there to like so much about this thread ? I am happy i did read in Gigabyte forums before every update, so i saw some garbage BIOS that did overvolt CPUs as some ppl did kill their processors so i did not update...
If you have fast Samsung B-Die kit, and you have trouble running faster speed then 3400 memory, then you have to blame the damn latest AGESA microcode.. I did readin this thread, that some other ppl did upgrade the AGESA and got OC nerf.. Maybe flash to the previous version of the BIOS it should fix it for you. After all you dont need the very latest BIOS, if you have ZEN II processor, just flash 1-2 versions early BIOS. I have atm F50e and works fine with Ryzen 3700x and 32GB B-Die sticks at CL14 3600 speed..
