I also have Msi x370 gaming pro carbon and upgraded to bios 1004 1NU and memory gets stuck at 2133mhz. With 1003abba 1NT bios it ran 3733mhz cl14 in memory and 1867mhz in infinty fabric. The question is, didn't engineers test bios correctly?

Hi,

I just upgraded to a Ryzen 7 3700X with the Tomahawk MAX board and I'm getting the cold boot black screen issue.

Hearing mixed things about the new BIOS that's supposed to fix this. The cold boot is the only issue for me so I don't want to mess with things and make them worse, but at the same time I don't want to have to boot twice every day I load my computer for the first time.

Is it still the case that the latest beta version of the BIOS fixes things, but the stable MSI website version causes additional problems for this board?

I'd prefer not to use a beta version. I don't intend to continuously be flashing a new BIOS either. I just want to install a confirmed MSI mainstream version and be done with it. Is it worth waiting for the next full release?

What is the advice of other Tomahawk MAX users here?

Many thanks all.

Same problem here

I use B350M Mortar motherboard, with the previous version of Bios "1003 abba" I could set the ram frequency to 2866 MHz and use normally, and now Bios in "1004" version is impossible to overclock above 2133 MHz because is failing memory overclock after rebooting.

Hey MSI FIX That!

I have tried all the BIOS versions since the release of the Tomahawk Max and the most stable versions in my experience are the latest stable (7C02v34) and the beta version before that (I forgot the version). I also advice you to avoid the latest beta (7C02v351), this is the worst BIOS version I have tried to date.

Good luck!

I can confirm, that X370 Gaming Pro Carbon only boots with 2133MHz on ram with the new beta 1NU.
My system have a R5 3600 and 16GB of Patriot Viper 4 @ 3200 MHz. That worked smoth on the last versions at standart CL16 setting and 1,35V.
Now playing around with voltage and timings does nothing - PC just boot and 2133MHz or otherwise stucks in the memory OC counter and "F1 to go BIOS"

Instead of crying around in big letters - share some information on us and MSI - without you can scream FIX IT against your wall for help ;)

I have the same issue with my RAM. I can enable XMP profile in BIOS (3000 MHz) but regardless of this setting in Windows my RAM is only 2400 MHz :sad: I'm waiting for an update :)

B450A-PRO after update all timings for RAM moved to another section and now they are in HEX, how to make them back? Also I can't even enter values fro some fields.

MEG X570 ACE with 7C35v144 (AGESA 1.0.0.3abb)
* No more bug with stuck on POST after MCLCK+FCLCK raising up to 3600(1800)
* Significantly reduced perfomance (max XFR clocks on 3900X - 4414MHz)

Seems no more changes there. Will check later.

 You are so right. The performance dropped but also the stable overclock is significantly lower than on the previous bios. I sold the ACE and bought the MEG Unify instead because it has better vrm heat sink thermals than the ACE. Those insipid plastic heat sink covers on the ACE were replaced with finned metal heatsink covers leading to better thermals. No RGB, no stupid gameboost knob, and no Intel Gb lan, but netter attention to thermal details. Same VRM support as the ACE for $300 instead of $370.

My X370 Gaming Pro Carbon AC only boots with 2400 MHz RAMClock with the new beta 7A32v2IP
My system have a R7 3700X and 16GB of G.SKILL Flare X F4-3200C14D-16GFX 3200MHz.
All bios versions prior to 7A32v2IP work flawlessly with the xmp profile.
In this version i can´t even activate the xmp profile, after activation the PC just boot and stucks in the memory OC counter and "F1 to go to BIOS".
Flashed successful back to 1.0.0.3abba and wait for a fix.

Vcore offset seems  to be reversed for B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC (bios 7b85v1b). Setting a negative offset results in more Vcore applied (HWinfo, Ryzen Master) and reversed.

I have like many others Problems with new BIOS 7A33v5JP(Beta version) for X370 GAMING PLUS.

Memory is stuck at 2133, any change (xmp profile or manual settings) keeps reseting memory to 2133 MhZ again.

With "old" 1.0.0.3 ABBA memory is working normal at 3200MhZ on xmp Profile, even some oc is possible.

P.S i Use g.skill ripjaws V ddr 4 3200 MhZ CL15 ram.

I hope someone from MSI is reading here and they gonna fix the issue soon.

No. The new patches are strictly meant for the newest generation of Ryzen CPU's.

I can confirm that the memory problems are gone wtith bios version 7A32v2IQ from 2019-12-03.
Good work MSI, but your supportpage and team (i created a ticket before) was not very useful at least.
anyway, all good for me now.

it looks like the problem is with 300s motherboard not x570. it's better to explain your problem in a new thread imo!!

This thread is about all the Beta Bios, and I don't have the need to explain anything anywhere else.
All I asked is for a new beta version.

As MSI mentioned dates for the final version of these BIOSes, is there a new ETA? For my (non-MAX) B450 Tomahawk a BETA version was released exactly one month ago and the final version should have been released at the end of November. Were there some problems found in validation or why does it take so long to release a final version? After all there are people out there which are reluctant to flash BETA versions and are still waiting for a final version with this new AGESA revision...

We do not have any timelines from MSI. They never have, and most likely never will, provide timelines more than what you've seen previously.
As far as why it takes so long, MSI does testing and validation to do their best to make sure they work well. 
MSI, unlike some other companies, isn't in the business to put out poor BIOS's that will brick a board or create more problems than the previous BIOS. Granted, that's not always the case with their BIOS's (trust me, I know how often things break), but that's just how it is. Consider how much validation a BIOS has to go through for each board, once you think about how many generations of CPU's and different CPU's each board/BIOS has to work with. Then consider other hardware (memory, SSD, etc....) just to ensure things work properly. 
More than anything, AMD's insistence on ensuring their motherboards work with so many generations of CPU's only makes things much worse.....Sorry to say, but it's the truth.

DIfferent issue but I'm still hoping for an update.  I don't know if I tried it when it said Beta but I tried 7C37v16 after the beta tag was removed on my X570 Gaming Edge WiFi and I still have an extra PCI device causing the system to hang on a black screen when trying to boot.

I'm still stuck on abba for the time being.

Hello to all,

I have read the description of the beta bios with "ComboPI1.0.0.4 Patch B (SMU v46.54". It says "support added for Ryzen 3 2200g". I have r3 2200g and I still use 1 year old official released bios for my a320m pro vh plus (7B07v3E). shall I update to beta with "ComboPI1.0.0.4 Patch B (SMU v46.54"?

My stance with AMD and BIOS will never change....

If it works and you don't have problems, don't update your BIOS. Newer versions aren't going to increase performance or make your CPU any better. 
If you update, it might not work, or work well, and even downgrading sometimes has proven to be a pain, or not work.

So, I reiterate, if your system is working well and you don't have problems, I wouldn't update.

Would love to try and help, but kinda need more info. What card? Brand? Model? for both? And what hardware do you have? See : >>Posting Guide<<

I am using a Sapphire RX 480 8GB OC GDDR5 card.

Rest of the rig is in my signature

it has been explained thoroughly
https://www.msi.com/page/mb-beta-bios
and you will not get the original GSE BIOS with the upcoming update.

What kinda option of OC you miss in GSE lite BIOS?

We do not have any timelines from MSI. They never have, and most likely never will, provide timelines more than what you've seen previously.
As far as why it takes so long, MSI does testing and validation to do their best to make sure they work well.
MSI, unlike some other companies, isn't in the business to put out poor BIOS's that will brick a board or create more problems than the previous BIOS. Granted, that's not always the case with their BIOS's (trust me, I know how often things break), but that's just how it is. Consider how much validation a BIOS has to go through for each board, once you think about how many generations of CPU's and different CPU's each board/BIOS has to work with. Then consider other hardware (memory, SSD, etc....) just to ensure things work properly.
More than anything, AMD's insistence on ensuring their motherboards work with so many generations of CPU's only makes things much worse.....Sorry to say, but it's the truth.


I like that my MSI X570-A PRO has a BIOS flashback feature. This eliminates the problem of no CPU for flashing the ROM etc.

I used that feature to update my motherboard so I  could POST with my R5 2400G processor.

Soon the Ryzen 4000 lineup will be available and I was looking at a new CPU from the second wave of 7nm which should have the errata fixed etc

Supporting a lot of processors needs more BIOS space which is another big reason I grabbed the X570 besides the other advantages, i would love it if all AM4 processors would POST

It's a great idea (the AM4 platform) on paper....however....

The issue is that AMD hasn't stood fast with what they laid out long ago.....and things have changed with the socket over time (much unbeknownst to users and most in the industry.....). 
That isn't how you create a good, stable, long lasting platform. It's how you create a problematic system. 
Then throw the BIOS issues on top, and honestly, it just really causes me to shy away from them.

I love the hardware, it has some great performance features and technologies. 
But, it's like a Toyota Prius. Great system with some great ideas behind it, but overall, all it does is get in the way on the highway.

I hope you guys (MSI) are still working on the BIOS for the B450 Tomahawk MAX. :think:

Latest is v35, from 11.11.19

The boot times are still lackluster, fyi 20+ Seconds min. With Samsung 850 evo SSD.

When optimzing the memory timings and i set the command rate manually to 1, its sets itself to 2, sometimes and all of a sudden.

Some of the Fan control settings are bugged, ie. not working to the max potential of the fans advertised max speed.

I bet there are still tons of bugs in the code considering the conversion from PCIe 4.0 back to 3.0.

Anyways, happy holidays and happy new year. ;D

imo it's better to keep it at gear down mode for better RAM OC stability

I know that there are some minor BIOS problems but the Radeon card problem is a crazy problem. I can only install drivers via INF files.

Naaa mate, have good RAM (3600 cl15 stock) and i know what iam doing, so this board should let me do what i want and not tinker in my :censored: .
Also Command Rate 1 vs 2 is like 15% in terms of performance with zen 2.

i'm not talking about performance but rather stability, but i mean if you want command rate at 1 you can just disable gear mode mode, isn't it? :confused2:

Which, strangly, also puts the Command Rate automatically to 2 most of the time.
Like i said, there is something going on here.

You neither set Command rate to 1T or 2T but set it to "Gear down Mode"
That gives you the 1T command rate... Not sure what MSI have done here

Honestly, theres probably nothing we here can do. You'd need to talk to MSI directly via : >>How to contact MSI.<<

It sounds more like a BIOS issue and initializing the card during bootup more than anything. Clearly there isn't a problem with the hardware though.

I am also on the AMD forum and they are aware of the headaches I have with my RX 480 OC 8GB

All I can do is be a squeaky wheel

My stance with AMD and BIOS will never change....

If it works and you don't have problems, don't update your BIOS. Newer versions aren't going to increase performance or make your CPU any better.
If you update, it might not work, or work well, and even downgrading sometimes has proven to be a pain, or not work.

So, I reiterate, if your system is working well and you don't have problems, I wouldn't update.
Here is an update for users wandering this beta for A320m:
My 2666Mhz Corsair Vengenance RAMs were working fine at 3200Mhz with official BIOS. So wanted to give a try to this new Agesa beta BIOS. My BIOS kept restarting due to OC'ed RAM error even I set the exact timings & voltages.

So, I revert back to official version of BIOS. My RAMs are working fine again 7x24. 

Be informed.

Hello, I have a question:
This topic says:  CPPC work with Ryzen 3000 + x570 only!!
So msi b450 tomahawk max with BIOS 7C02v35 (or beta v351) also does not have this support, right?
