Hello everyone and good morning. Looks like a SpaceX heavy launch today I am going to have to check that out!!
I just noticed this morning that (finally) a new BIOS update for the Ryzen on my MSI x370 Gaming Pro AC board. The last official was v2.5. I ran beta BIOS v2.55 and this one jumped way up to v2.8(official). It also updates RAM compatibility and CPU AGESA Code 18.104.22.168.
I have been waiting for… See More
this for what seems like ages lol. I had even tinkered with trying some beta BIOS with little luck on my RAM config. beyond 2933MHZ. Sometimes I could get 3066 but was not totally stable. Performance was awesome (at 2933) but I did want to see my modules rated frequency used on my rig!
I was worried with the PNY kit I chose to save a few bucks, and because its using KLEVV chips I would be near last for getting solid support in updates but it looks like this BIOS update did the trick. I booted right into the XMP profile #2 preconfig settings and 3200MHZ finally. I am running it now and no issues so far all morning. I do find it interesting that even with Auto across the board set in BIOS, the tRC kicked back to 74. I had been trying 66 and 68 on previous versions. The SPD reads a 54 at 3200Mhz. I am going to run this profile for a while and test it out in day to day use before I even try to tweak any timings or anything else.
Good day to all!
