How is the latest bios releases working out for 5000 series owners here? I've just got a 5900x and a new gskill trident z neo ram kit 3600 14-15-15-35 on its way and not sure which bios i should start with? I'm currently on bios 2801 with my 3800x running at 4.5ghz with a 3800cl14 oc on a trident z royal 2x8 gb kit
Use the latest 4301 bios, earlier bioses had two problems a. idle reboot and b. USB issues(with 5-series, not 3-series), sheer performance is less important than booth of those

Always use Bios Flashback when flashing a new bios

Well 4301 is based on agesa 1.2.0.1 which does have some usb fixes ,Hopefully the next release will be based on 1.2.0.2 so should fix all usb issues with ryzen 5000 series....

I managed to get 3733cl14 and 3800cl16 ram working as well but the same old issue of fclk dropping out of sync after waking from sleep if running higher than 1800fclk is still present so I'm just gonna keep my ram at 3600cl14 for now, the last bios that didn't have the fclk dropping out of sync after waking from sleep was bios 2801

From time to time it wont recognize my Steelseries Stratos Duo or loose connection to it.

USB Drives and external HDD's working fine .

This was the first instance that it happened to me. Had to try different ports and several tries to get it recognized. First time that has happened to me so I thought it might be related to the latest BIOS. Also checked the thumb drive on my laptop and it worked every instance.

Hi guys,

I was wondering what would be a better upgrade for me.

Getting an 5000 serie CPU or get the ROG Crosshair 8 x570?

The CPU's obviously work fine on this board but i have heard that on x570 its works better due to better RAM overclocking?

Would save the Money, even the cheapest Boards can run 3800 mhz.Mostly binning of the cpu it what is holding you back, sure a better board will help if u need very high voltages to run 4000+ stable wouldnt run that in a 24/7 environment.Switched to 5600x from 2700x on ch7 and after tweaking i run 3800 c16 100% stable without issues.
After Zen4 release or earlier there is still the option to upgrade to a 59xx, bigger upgrade is am5 and dd5 but i dont expect cheap prices, in my opinion ch7 is a very solid board for the rest of the am4 lifetime.

I hear ya.

So upgrading to an 5600x from an 3600 cpu would be better than x570 crosshair?

Im running 4.4 GHz 3800 cl16 stable too now after some weird issues. Turned out that the EC was monitored again and causing some stabilitie issues. Running better now.

I think i will upgrade to 5600x and a new PSU since this one is already 8;years old and i want something more efficient.

I'd keep the C7H and upgrade to a 5000 series cpu, my C7H has been home to a 2700x, 3800x and now a 5900x and I have no real issues bar 1, on all bios releases after 2801 if you run higher than 1800 fclk and use sleep in win10 when waking from sleep it'll put your fclk/memclk out of sync and drop to 2:1 mode it's not a deal breaker though

Is PBO + curve optimizer + Auto OC not working on C7H correctly? My 5900x will not boost over 4.95ghz no matter what I do, all my cores will hit 4.95ghz peaks and I thought using PBO + curve optimizer + auto oc would allow my 5900x to boost to 5ghz+ under the right conditions?

2700x to 5600x was worth it for me at least, little bit better multicore performance even with less 2 cores and bigger gains in singlecore, better compare the games you play and check some benchmarks if its worth it for you, jump from 3600 to 5600x isnt that big, 5600x dropped in price but still around 300 bucks for idk 10% gain ? but depends on how well your 3600 is tuned. so maybe gain is bit bigger, takes less power indeed but pricey.cant give recommandations.
if u dont need pcie4 there is no real arguement to go with x570 and even then for a gaming rig a solid b550 would be the better choice.

dont think am5 will run solid at the beginng, same with every new release,cpus will be much more expensive, ddr5 with good speeds and timings costs are unknown but i expect its around double the amount for 16gb than now for ddr4 or even more.possible that amd wont release 6 cores anymore and 8 cores are the new entry level so costs rise up even further.

Did we need it? I thought it is only a Bug of X570 chipset.I have the HP reverb G2 and have never a connection problem on my CH7.
