I'd be curious to know if Asus has fixed the odd boosting behaviour I've seen on some x470/570 boards. Thus far I've only seen tests done on MSI godlikes and Auoros master boards, likely because all of the major YouTubers got them in their review package.Just noticed Asus released a new bios (7304) for C6H that fixes RAM issues of zen 2 processor..
Already applied it...now it's time to know if I will be able to wait for R9 3900X or just go for R7 3700X..
Yes ASUS faced a bios bug for all zen 2 bios. However they managed to come back now.I'd be curious to know if Asus has fixed the odd boosting behaviour I've seen on some x470/570 boards.

Ah ahah...i’m sorry....i’m a bit jealous as you have your r9 3900x...It’s all your fault Marc!
Seriously though since parting out my Ryzen box in preparation I was sold on the 3900x. Props for the board recommendation. Busy camping with the kids this weekend but hopefully get to test it all soon.
Lucky you...Microcenter restocked last night here. I was able to grab one on my lunch break. Hopefully soon for you as well!
I’ll use the stock cooler for post test / windows install and baseline readings. Plan is to rebuild my custom loop or go easy mode with a new AIO. If I do go custom it will be the CPU only. Full water is fun but the GPUs I have on hand are not waterblocked. Plus swapping parts is easy maneuvering around just the CPU loop.
Nice, so are you able to get the 3800x now?After long thoughts (again), i’m now aiming to ryzen 7 3800x.
Here is why :
My main plan is to stick on my x370 crosshair vi hero. If ever it’s not working, i’ll go for x570 aorus élite as backup...
- I don’t really need 12/24, as my main activity remains 4k60 gaming. Zen 2 should improve overall experience and 1% low frame time.
- I could go for r7 3700x, especially as media who reviewed r7 3800x show marginal gains vs r7 3700x...however r7 3700x press samples seems to be good/lucky samples. Knowing my luck on silicon lottery, I prefer to choose safest path with r7 3800x.
I keep you informed
Well my apogee drive is from 2013-2014. (Bought it used, as it was no longer in europe).Shame about the Apogee, glad the CPU and motherboard are all good. How old was the Apogee? I am currently using one and hope it doesn't die on me.
well I've flare-X with b-die from Samsung.Are you using b die? you can tight those timings a bit more I guess. I´m using micron rev E and at lower timings with 1.5v on them so your ram should do better than mine.
