    Curious, how does one go about flashing the bios with the new double file size, 32,722KB? tried using the Aptio 4 version of AfuEfix64 with the usual /P /B /N /K /X /CLRCFG switches. Received and error never had to deal with before. Error stated that the file sizes did not match. Noticed that with Aptio V there were two new switches. Something like /ATRU:A and /ATRU:"D". the diagram showed an upper and lower part of the bios each at 16MB each. The motherboard utility works but do not like being limited to needing to exclusively rely on it. Takes away the possibility of downgrading if the need arises.

    I exclusively use BIOS flashback on my C7H to flash any BIOS whether modded / old / new.
    But before I started doing that I used Afuefix64 from here : https://www.overclock.net/forum/11-...yzen-bios-mods-how-update-bios-correctly.html
    in the first post under : How to flash an official BIOS + modded BIOS.

    That is where I got the files to setup the flash drive as well. The Afuefix64 needed to be switched out when I originally downloaded it. Got the file straight from AMI. Miss the flashback feature. It was on the C6H as well. Next go around, not going to skimp on the board. X470-F is a decent board; just miss the ability to boot with an odd cas setting and the flashback button on the back panel. Limitations of the board.

    Actually seems I can't do that, if I try to apply Fabric Clock higher than Memory Clock Ryzen Master pops an error saying Fabric Clock can't be higher than memory clock:

    Don't know if this is because of X370 chipset or what... oh well.

    I did the clock changes in the BIOS and used Ryzen Master and CPU-Z to show the clocks.Maybe try it in the bios, if you want to give it a shot.

    I'll try via BIOS then.

    While at it, I tried upping memory clock (and IF clock) to 1600 without touching timings and it worked. So turns out I actually have 3200 CL14 capable kit in disguise (3000 CL14 nominal).

    This wasn't possible with first gen Ryzen, system wouldn't POST. I could run 3200 CL16 though, but nice regardless.

    AMD AGESA 1.0.0.3ABBA That Apparently Fixes Zen2 Boost Issues Leaked

    AMD is giving final touches to an AGESA microcode update that fixes the issue of underwhelming Precision Boost behavior on its 3rd generation Ryzen processors.
    Version ComboAM4 1.0.0.3ABBA is being pushed to motherboard manufacturers to integrate with their UEFI firmware, and one such dispatch to MSI got leaked to the web on ChipHell.
    Tom's Hardware grabbed the BIOS as it was compatible with the MEG X570 Creator motherboard they have, and tested the Ryzen 9 3900X and Ryzen 7 3700X with it.

    In its testing, posted in a mini-review article, Tom's Hardware observed that with AGESA 1.0.0.3ABBA, their 3700X sample was correctly hitting 4.40 GHz across the board at stock settings.
    With the older 1.0.0.3AB, it would touch 4.375 GHz. The Ryzen 9 3900X behaves slightly differently with this microcode.
    Tom's Hardware was able to raise its peak boost frequency from 4.575 GHz to 4.625 GHz (above the 4.60 GHz specification), but in certain tests such as POV-Ray and CineBench, its boost frequency decays down to 4.250 GHz.
    Overall, the reviewer tabulated improved performance on the chips with the new microcode. The new microcode also apparently changes the processor's thermal thresholds.

    My 3700X is one that does the 4.375 so it should be interesting to do some testing.

    I get 4.55 boost on 5 cores, and 4.65 on 3 cores on my 3800X. The CPU randomly picks which ones will hit 4.55 and 4.65. I am not overclocking. I am rather interested to see what the new 1.0.0.3ABBA brings. If other owners will finally hit the specified boosts on their CPUs, I am hoping mine will hit 4.7-4.75. I ended up with a rather good CPU.

    It is the Asrock X470 Taichi. I am really impressed with this motherboard.

    Im now Happy 3700X User :D
    Need to learn new platform ;)
    4GHz w/3466 CL14 1733FLCK
    But it not downclock, for me.... hmm
    Reinstalled GFX & MOBO drivers, BIOS is 7403

    UPD.
    it's Ok, i've installed Ryzen Master and set some profiles ;)
    12tW ! Average wen surfing WEB
    Need to test some games, it can 4.2GHz at 1.264v !

    UPD.2
    RM is helpful, 3600MHz Boost up to 4350MHz
    For now im happy, TBF we need matured BIOS.... Waitâ„¢

    Ok, turned On PC today to find that my SBz is missing.
    Reinstalled drivers, and nothing, it is present in device manager.
    No access to SB control panel.

    Is OK now
    Changed PCIe slot + reinstall :cool:
