Thats a very expensive and time intensive move for just a little bit of undervolting that probably wont do that much performance wise. The times where you can get 20% performance gains from overclocking are over. I would not buy a new board to get me 5% extra but thats me.Yeah I know they released it for the B550 Gaming Edge, it's not fair they did not release it for the Tomahawk too imho, becasue it's the exact same board, it would be so easy to release the bios for the two boards at the same time as they always have done (because I repeat again, they are the same board except for the extra lan on the tomahawk and the wi-fi on the gaming edge). But no, this time they only released it for one of them. I have the feeling of having an excellent cpu on a very good motherboard that does not let me fine tune it for better temps, and I've been waiting for this to change for more than 2 months, I think it's a reasonable amount of time waiting. I don't know when I would win the lottery, maybe next week or maybe i'd had to wait another couple of months, but I'm tired of waiting.
I already ordered another motherboard (from another vendor), this situation pushed me to do it. It's been a pleasure being part of this forums, keep up the good work here.
And officially its not supported. MSI is now adding it it will take some time before all boards are done. Most of the time these company's only have 1-2 guy's working on new biosses its not a big team. Patience is a virtue
