Motherboards with AMD processors / Re: GA-AX370 Gaming 5 Bios Issue
« Last post by Sipheren on April 18, 2017, 09:27:58 pm »
Hi,

I have an issue after updating the BIOS and getting some new memory, I got myself some Vengeance LPX 3000MHz memory (2x8GB sticks).

I am currently on the latest F5 BIOS, I set the memory to profile 1 and reboot and nothing, the system doesn't post and I get error 0d displayed which I cant find anything for.

I figure something weird has gone on so I switch over to the other BIOS, it's at F3 and the memory doesnt run at profile 1, just stock.

So I update that bios to the latest and try profile1 again, as I should have expected, same result, no post and error 0d.

So, I have tried booting with no memory, tried resetting the BIOS, leaving the battery out all night, etc but it just boots, sounds fine, no lights or anything, gets to code 0d and thats it.

Is there a way to force flash an older BIOS? Or is this done for and heading back to Gigabyte?

(Also, I know I should have left the other BIOS, but I wanted the new memory to work as it is listed as supported on both Gigabyte's site and Corsair's)
Having a similar problem.

was running an R5 1600, with team TLGD416G3000HC16CDC01 16gb (2x8GB) ddr4-3000 @ 2133. installed windows 10 and updated both bios to F5. tried to oc cpu to 3.5ghz, and enable ram XMP to 2933 and now both bios will not post with an error code of "DF". DF is reserved according to the manual.

cmos cleared via button and jumper to no avail.


Did you have the power totally off when you cleared CMOS ?
I have been running Bios F5, with 4 sticks of Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) 3200MHz DDR4 Memory-Black
CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 and managed to get 2933 out of them, stable.

Yeah, I did, tried many different ways. I was hoping there may be a way to force a bios update but it doesn't seem to be the case.

The board is heading back to Gigabyte today, will see what they can do.

I have the AB350m gaming 3 board and my temps are really better on the this board then on the MSI board. The MSi board I was using the heat sink and fan that came with the CPU and yes in the bios they could go to 60c.

I replace the heat sink and fan with cooler master Hyper T4. Now temps never went over 38c in the bios on the MSi board. On the Gigabyte board the temps are running around 30c in the bios.

On the memory are they on the gigabyte list for this board? I have found that if you use memory that supports X99 & Z170 board you might have some problems. If you use the memory that just supports just x99 board it will run fine.

On the FM2 and Ryzen CPU do run hotter then the FX CPU so you really can't use their junk heat sink & fan on the FM2 & Ryzen CPU's. I build a lot computers every year.

Suggest you review Fan Header descriptions on pages 14-15 of your manual to ensure correct configuration/connections.  External splitters are not a good idea.  They can have a negative effect on fan control and performance.  If the rad fans are connect to a splitter on the cooler, this is fine. 

I'll try and hit your questions in order.  When you install a cooler its typically a one shot deal.  The amount of thermal compound you use must be correct and it must be applied evenly to be efficient.  The first time its normally pre-applied for you.  You should expect slightly higher temps for the first 12-24 hrs while the system "burns in" and settles.  If you find that your temps remain high when idle or you see thermal compound forced out the sides of the cpu/cooler contact point, you should remove it, clean (q-tip and alcohol) and reapply.  Your mounting bracket and/or back plate must also be evenly torqued to ensure proper operation.

The system comes with great fan control built right into the BIOS.  However, you need to have your fans/coolers/water pumps plugged into the correct headers for correct operation.  Ext. splitters can skew the reading and keep the system from setting correct fan speed based on thermal temps and load.

Please also note that attempting set fan curve profiles in SIV and other settings in BIOS can have a contradictory affect on fan operation.  Creating custom fan curve and profiles can contribute to this behavior.  Usually best to pick one (BIOS) or another (SIV) and manage control from there. Also, some boards (like mine) fan control does not support all of the headers.  I don't think this applies in your case, but be mindful of this.

If it were me, I would clean and re-apply thermal paste.  Enter BIOS and ensure all settings under MIT > Speed Fan 5 were defaults.  Boot into windows.  Now delete any custom fan curves I or the program had created for me.  You can leave App Center and SIV installed for further monitoring.  Restart again.  Enter BIOS and monitor idle temps for 5-10 min.  CPU should not be over 30*c when idle.  Now boot into OS and monitor idle temps there. Remember, if you have just installed thermal paste, it takes a while for temps to normalize. 

Everyone has a different way of keeping their case cool.  For example, I don't use cases with side venting.  I prefer air movement front to back across my GPU and MB.  I like my PSU fan aiming up.  Primarily because I keep my case on carpeted floor.  I then use fans mounted in the top of my case to pull any heat up and out.  If I used a top mount radiator, I would adjust based on the volume of air I could move through the case for best heat dissipation.  Everyone has their own ways of doing this.

Motherboards with AMD processors / Re: BIOS downgrades itself

Hi there,

reverting to the F5d BIOS, after putting the PC to sleep does sound strange. But hey, it's a PC and all things are possible!

If I have the right motherboard for you then, it comes with Two BIOS switches. This allows you to easily swao between the Main and Backup BIOS chips.
The easiest way of syncing the BIOS chips is to totally shut down the PC, set the switches so you are going to BOOT from the Backup BIOS chip, then flash the Backup BIOS with the F5 file.
Once the Backup chip has been flashed you can switch back to the Main BIOS and hopefully, not encounter this issue again.

Motherboards with AMD processors / BIOS downgrades itself

What the hell.....put PC to sleep from Windows10, after wakeup BIOS got downgraded from F5 to F5D .....had to re-install F5 again. The PC had been running fine with F5 ( no BIOS changes) for about a week. Bizarre !!

Does the facility to copy BIOS from master to backup still exist ? if yes how is it done?

To add..  You can also try a different driver.  v1.03.B04 and later supports windows 10. 

http://support.dlink.com/ProductInfo.aspx?m=DWA-192

Also, these two BIOS settings can affect USB support at boot. Page 55/56 of your manual

HS Port #1 Switchable~HS Port #4 Switchable (Intel Z77 Chipset)

xHCI Streams (Intel Z77 Chipset)

While windows 10 is xHCI compliant natively, there is no telling how an older board will act in conjunction with various BIOS rev's  Not saying it will fix the problem but it certainly worth a look.  You may have to test various settings as well as different driver versions.  In the end, the only fix might be a different device which coincides with what dmdilks mentioned.

XHCI Pre-boot driver, HS Port Switchable and xHCI Streams are all enabled in the BIOS. So it should work as USB 3.0, right?
Those two setting were actually created for windows 7.  It did not support xHCI in preboot environment natively.  These settings were primarily to ensure USB keyboard and mouse support preboot.  Windows 8 and > support xHCI preboot.  Its hard to say what these settings might do (maybe nothing) when using a OS that supports xHCI natively. 

So to answer your question, from a hardware perspective yes, but if the driver for the device is poorly written or implemented, it could revert to 2.0 speeds.  You'll just have to try.   

I checked the screenshot I took before upgrading the BIOS to latest version. The value I set for xHCI Streams was Auto and this time after BIOS upgrading, the value you see from the screenshot I attached is Smart Auto. Checked the manual and they work differently. Hope it can fix the USB3.0 issue.

Good work  ;)  Disappointing, but I'm sure the replacement will resolve it.
