I'm sorry you guys aren't having fun with the new bios.  I found having cool and quiet on when OCing the CPU resulted in a set clock speed of 2800.  Without it on, the OC was stable for a couple days but started showing instability after a few days.  Probably need to lower the OC or something. 

However, at stock CPU speeds, I've gotten the best results out of the memory thus far.  And THAT has been stable as can be.  And CPU OC is not my priority at this point.  If one could simply up the lower end of the turbo, I'd be very happy.  I've no real desire to keep all cores at 4.1GHZ all the time.  I'd like my CPU to last me a while.

Seems to me a simple  If-Then command would be easy enough to implement.  If Ryzen 1*00x, Then (Temp)-20c for the debug LED.  I mean, an electrical/software engineer I am not, but...

Apparently that is too hard for the MSI BIOS devs to work that out, so they are just displaying RAM clock instead (i think).
if (CPU.name.match(/X$/) {
   debugLED.offset = -20;
}

I think it is not RAM frequency or sth else.
Start up from turn off status it will shows 24
Sleep and wake up it, we can see 30
Do it one more time, we get 33

BIOS BETA1.93
CPU Core voltage can rush to 1.432V with 1700X (All auto and only OC memory).
It looks too high.

Yeah, 1.93 I lost all gains from 1.91.  Wouldn't even post with 3066 where 1.91 was stable.  I didn't test other features as the memory speed is what is important to me at the moment.

I rolled back to 1.91

Well.. I upgrade from 1.83.1.93 can pass AIDA64 stress test on memory with XFR turned off. So It looks better for me.
When I use 1.83, stress test (on memory only) will shut up in 3 min because "hardware failure" if I turn off XFR to have lower voltage (up to 1.2V on core) and I have 1.416V max voltage with XFR on. So 1.93 gives me an option at least.
For memory frequency, I should say gskill 3200C14 is the only option for 1st gen ryzen... It is AMD's fault.

Dear,

My memory in the current configuration (1 kit 2x8GB F4-3200C14D-16GFX) works perfectly. I got another kit from the same memory. I tried to put in 3200MHz with the XMP profiles, but the system rebooted, it indicates the code F9 and it returns to restart in an endless cycle. Restore, disable XMP and configure manually. The same thing. I go back in the BIOS and set to 2933Mhz. It works, it boots, but it gets unstable by locking the system. And code F9 is indicated again. I need 32GB to work. I have already posted some posts and even contacted MSI support that is taking a long time to respond. I was forced to remove the other kit and only stay in the 16GB.

And I still have another problem. The boost is not working. The 2.2GHz clock range for my CPU's maximum does not work with the Ryzen Balanced power profile, but it works with Windows's own Balanced. As??? I see that whoever has the B350 this feature is working properly. Here it is constantly at 3.7GHz.

I discovered bitterly that the problem was a bug in the BIOS of my mayoboard. Even resetting the BIOS does not solve. I disabled the ERP and re-enabled it. Then everything started working normally. Something happened with this bios and this was stuck version 1.6 to 1.9, because this feature never worked and the settings of the plans and BIOS have always been the same.

So I consider the clock variation problem solved, although you should check what happened here, as it is quite strange that a configuration has been locked since version 1.6.

I did some more tests with the memories (4x8GB) at 2400MHz which is the SPD clock of these memories. In the middle of the Windows boot it restarted. So I did not test anymore and only returned 2x8GB at 3200MHz.

I'm following the G.Skill forum, but I have not had any answers to my problem yet.

Hi, a lot of people say, that they can run with 4 RAM moduls on 3200MHz and that new Ryzen, which were created after 25th week, are very good for overcloking.
Maybe a lot of our problems are with old Ryzen revision. You can try RMA process, because all old Ryzen have Linux bug and AMD does send new AMD CPU free.

Check forum https://community.amd.com/thread/215773?start=1680&tstart=0

And do RMA with your CPU

Coincidentally, I've had to RMA my 4th week 2017 1700X.  It's on its way to AMD as we speak, so we'll see how the replacement does.

I've been having some terrible instability when resuming from sleep and other oddities (like requiring 1.25v SoC to use 3200MHz mem).  This is with 1.94 beta and any other BIOS version.  I keep getting a Windows green screen and DPC_Watchdog_Timer faults that result in a hard crash, mem dump, and reboot; happens nearly everytime I resume from deep sleep.  Other times, I've come back to my PC, still powered via long idle, but it's hard locked.

Also had a defective H100iv2 cold plate that wasn't sitting flush with my CPU, which was a huge reason for my higher than normal temps.  Interestingly, I had greater instability with cooler temps on replacement H100iv2.

It happens sometimes.

Because it is a (non msi staff member) moderator trying to keep up with numerous products by himself.

Because all I care about is the BETA's for here on the forums. I really don't care much about the released versions, and it's mainly on the page only for reference and that's it.

If it worries you that much, then don't look at the BETA page.

Not at all. I was just wondering if there was problem with 1.90 since I am using it. All is cool.  I had rma'd my MSI X370 Titanium board in hope that my muliplier issue would resolve.. It did NOT. I had already  replaced my 1800X with AMD's approval and that did not help either. Memory has been replaced 3 times all were good and used air to blow out memory slots all to no avail. Removed all my sata ssd drives to no avail. The only item that has not been removed is my Samsung 960 EVO nvme drive. I am waiting for my Alphacool Eiswolf RX Vega full cover gpu cooler to arrive and I will have my install tech remove the 960 EVO and see if the issue is resolved then. I can't do it because the retaining screw for the m.2 drive slot is so tiny and non-metallic I would definitely lose it. I am a little more klutsy in my old age. If that does NOT locate the problem I am out of options. If the 960EVO nvme drive is causing the multiplier failure to boot issue I will be devastated. It has been so stable and super high performance in every other possible way. If you have any further ideas on this let me know. I have picked the minds of some very experienced  users on overclock.net and everybody is clueless after I did all the other steps.
  By the way the Vega 56 is dooing very well. I am undervolting it while ovrclocking it. Just ran the Ashes of the Singularity Escalation benchmark over the past 2 days and id some tweaking of the Vega card with AMD's wattman utility. My best result was an average of 69 FPS for 4k at high quality settings for a combo of normal, medium, and heavy loads. Puts me at number 32 out of over 300 bench results displayed. When the Alphacool AIO gpu block arrives I figure to improve the performance another 5 to 6 percent. Some guy actually had the highest score with 117 fps on a Vega 64, probably liquid cooled. He beat out several 1080 Ti results. I do not know how he did 117 fps average at 4k High quality either he knows some tricks no one else does or he hacked the results some how.

Well it is NOT a lot of people. It is a few people. It is mostly silicon lottery with better IMC than most Ryzen chips have. Settings can have some influence on this but I guarantee most people with 4 dimms are not running at 3200mhz on Ryzen boards in spite of the talk.

I went to a Gigabyte K7 that is very good. However I have to keep trying and hoping I can get the Titanium my wife games on up to speed. So far all its good at is reseting everthing to optimized settings.

Just flashed the latest 7A31v1C BIOS with AGESA 1.1.0.1 .

Everything seems ok for now but the GAME BOOST LED keep reseting to RED intead of staying WHITE like it changes when i chose control by BIOS intead of button in BIOS. Still don't know if the new BIOS is resetting the GAME BOOST function every boot or it doesn't save the setting.

I flashed that latest BIOS.
....I don't know what will happen with old BIOS because I cannot flash back.. but if I set frequency manually (such as 3700MHz) and CPU is not in idle, BCLK will lower to 95MHz. and it is even not stable as old BIOS (1.90 in idle will stable at 99.98 to 99.99) but 1.C0 will up and down between (99.97 to 100.02 frequently)

Tried to contact MSI Support about the GAME BOOST LED problem got this since yesterday .....


L.E. Seems to work now after 1 day of trying ;>

New bios can now run 2x8GB Gskill H5AN8G8NAFR-TFC Hynix AFR at 3200Mhz XMP all AUTO before wasn't possible more then 2933 and with manual settings.
4x8GB no go with any XMP Profile and the error i'm getting is D8(Invalid Password) :>> and not F9 as with previous bioses.
I now run 4x8GB at 2800Mhz with 14-16-16-16-34 tweaked timings before weren't stable at 16-18-18-18-38. I will play with manual settings over weekend and see if i can improve more.

The MSI tech support saga continues ...  telling them that after updating to new BIOS 7A31v1C and setting Game Boost setting to By Bios Option(SW) after saving and exiting bios the White SW LED on motherboard is replaced by Red HW LED meaning the setting By OnBoard Button they respond by asking me if i updated the bios !? and what setting did i chose in bios !? ....

And since i can't respond to them because SERVER ERROR 500 and last time i reply to support email it didn't work i will post my response here :

I attached a picture and a video for easy understanding
Picture file >>game_boost _setting_in_bios.jpg<<
- 7A31v1C downloaded from support website : https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/X370-XPOWER-GAMING-TITANIUM.html#down-bios
- Game Boost Function Control Setting with pictures of the motherboard LEDs when setting it :
   > WHITE LED for Bios option
   > RED LED for Onboard Button
Video file >>video_of_led_reseting on his_own.webm << u can see the BUG in action.
How to replicate :
enter BIOS >> set Game Boost Function Control to By BIOS Options or SW  from GAME BOOST button >> WHITE SW LED turns on >> save settings >> exit bios >> RED HW LED turns on  >> enter bios again >> settings show up as set >> have to change setting multiple times to turn the WHITE SW LED back on again which off course  resets again after exiting BIOS
Ur new BIOS breaks the function.

    Yes. But this angers me. They have an official release bios without public beta testing. That is very bad methodology.The reason there is public beta testing is to determine flaws that the developers would not see as they do not have every hardware variable covered in their labs or with their corporate customers. This is a bad policy that I hope they never repeat. By the way they have enhanced memory compatibility with poorer memory performance. My fps on cinebench 15 opengl is 10 points lower than it was with bios 1.90.

Well if they gave us betas in this 4 months i'm sure the GAME BOOST BUG i'm seeing since the RED LED is hard to miss thru computer case window will have been reported to them. But then again maybe this is a new MSI feature like the removing of the temperature display on debug LED.

Check the timings the memory runs and set them manually if u have to.

    Yes. But this angers me. They have an official release bios without public beta testing. That is very bad methodology.The reason there is public beta testing is to determine flaws that the developers would not see as they do not have every hardware variable covered in their labs or with their corporate customers. This is a bad policy that I hope they never repeat. By the way they have enhanced memory compatibility with poorer memory performance. My fps on cinebench 15 opengl is 10 points lower than it was with bios 1.90.

*Sigh*

How many times do I really need to explain that this isn't the place to be complaining about that? It is 100%, absolutely, positively, pointless here. All it does is frustrate EVERYONE else. And I've said this to you multiple times now. And you still continue doing it. So one last time. See : >>Please read and comply with the Forum Rules.<< and then >>How to contact MSI.<<

I'm trying since this morning 6 am or so to contact technical support . All I'm getting when hitting the replay button is that 500 server busy error....

Maybe is good to INFORM ("frustrate" ??) other people so they actually flood the support system with complaints and maybe after getting jaw dropping response like in my case for a ticked named BIOS 7A31v1C (2018-01-29) GAME BOOST
 they complain even more , RMA motherboards or not buy them at all so those in charge listen to people paying their wages. From all this situation i speculate that the 1st line of people that triage the support tickets don't really have technical background

I don't see how threatening other people that comment here with BANS for what i see like perfectly fine and informative comments will help.

But then again what is this forum for ?
Do we all need to behave like 12 years old and say things like : OMG !!! How coolz is this , the new bios made my white led on motherboard turn red, MSI the best !!! to be on terms with forum rules ?

And ofc i will also get BANED with this comment because MSI THE BEST ;> but that won't fix the BUG i have with the new BIOS.

Nothing in this very post is informative, you are just ranting and wasting everybodys time including yours.
You are asking a rhetoric question,which has an obvious answer looking at darkhawks link, though evidently your didn't get it.
If their actual support can't help you just remember that, and don't buy again, it's that simple.

My comment was suppose to make a case against darkhawk threats with ban against user imwechs not to be informative or not , my informative post with bug details is up the page.

Well guess I'm the only person with this motherboard and new bios that has the GAME BOOST LED BUG seeing that nobody post here same problem.

Darkhawk does this stuff voluntarily and he has to tell this person the same thing over and over, somehow your reaction doesn't make sense.

What you described sounds more like a minor inconvenience, rather than a serious bug. The amount of people that would get that kinda board to just apply automated OC via the press of a button but at the same time care enought to keep BIOS up to date and report bugs is probably not that high.

It's easy to be ignorant of situations. Especially when you clearly know nothing about it.

Maybe instead of being irrational and 'behaving like a 12 year old', you should recognize that there is more to it than just 1 simple post (like, I dunno, maybe 6+ months worth of posts.....if you spent time looking into it).

Well.... It's a good update for me.

I've had continual problems with my GSkill 8GB 3600 modules (F4-3600C16-8GTZR) from the very beginning.  I have never been able to use XMP settings and could never get above 2600.

With the latest update XMP profile #1 (3333) worked on the first try.

I'll try full speed (3600) later.

Newest update gave me a nice stability bump in ram and lower voltage use in my 1800x as well, before highest stable was 2666 with 4 Dimms now i can do 3000 altho anything higher results in BSOD after a few minutes, this is without manual timing adjustment however, CPU and ram frequency was simply numbered in and everything else was left at auto.

Latest beta bios E7A31AMS.1D1 13/02/2018 can now run my 32GB (4 x 8GB) G.Skill F4-3200C16-8GTZR Hynix AFR with XMP Profile 1 2933Mhz. The stable bios E7A31AMS.1C0 could only run them at 2800Mhz.so it's an improvement. Let's see if they can make it run at 3200Mhz with next bios updates.

Game Boost BUG or "MSI FEATURE" still there.

I installed the D1 as well but had no improvement concerning Ram. It seems that 3066 Mhz is the Border for my Kit. I managed to boot with 3133 but the mem test failed.

Well i just got from support another beta E7A31AMS.1D2 and seems to have fixed the GAME BOOST LED BUG. Waiting for final BIOS E7A31AMS.1D0 to see if there aren't any regressions and BUG reappear ;>
