    I went ahead and installed the new chipset drivers right over the top of the old ones and without changing anything on my system. No problems at all. I just finished stress testing and doing some...

    1usmus Custom Power Plan required us to set the following in the BIOS under "AMD CBS":

    Global C-state Control = Enabled
    Power Supply Idle Control = Low Current Idle (not in ASUS BIOS)

    Thinking the "unable to parse" issue might have been caused by running the benchmark from my NAS, I extracted the files to my C: drive and re-ran the test. I still got the same "unable to parse"...

    I'm fully up-to-date on my Crosshair VIII Hero, but I've found no option in the BIOS to modify the chipset fan curve at all. Plus, every time I look at its status in HWInfo, it's spinning madly away...

    I've found what I think are the locations for two other Calculator fields in the BIOS. I'd appreciate it if someone could confirm/deny those:

    Under the Misc table, "BGS" (and the Alternate)...

    My plan was to get 3200 SAFE settings up and running and then try for 3600 SAFE. I'm pretty sure I should be good for at least 3600 and possibly up to 4110 SAFE (though I really doubt I'd ever go...

    Thanks. I'd already seen that video. I primarily worked with the material in 1usmus' AMD Ryzen Memory Tweaking & Overclocking Guide. Specifically the things and diagrams on page 5:

    Thanks for the offer. I got about 2/3 of the way through without any problems whatsoever. I was seeing about a 6% improvement in memory benchmarks, but they appeared mostly after simply entering...

    I waded through my Crosshair VIII Hero's BIOS (version 1105) and found most of the locations that equate to what 1usmus' Ryzen DRAM Calculator gives. I'm including the information, below, in case it...
  13. X570 Crosshair VIII Hero: Relationship Between BIOS and Ryzen DRAM Calculator

    I've never overclocked before and thought I'd start by overclocking the memory. I need some help mapping what the Ryzen DRAM Calculator (v 1.62):

  14. Setting PBO to On might be the wrong thing to do,...

    Setting PBO to On might be the wrong thing to do, though. I got that advice on Reddit (and it worked). But, after testing, it looks like there's no performance difference at all and power usage...

    Aaargh! That's exactly why I didn't want to buy one of these existing X570 designs. I hope it doesn't happen with my Crosshair VIII Hero. Are you planning to return the board, RMA it, or try to...

    Enabling PBO in the BIOS did the trick. In this Asus BIOS, that's at Extreme Tweaker > Precision Boost Overdrive. I changed it from Auto (which, I guess, means disabled) to Enabled. The Eco-Mode...

    Surprisingly, AMD hasn't updated their chipset drivers for the X570 since their 1.9.27.1033 revision in September (I really expected them to with AGESA 1.0.0.4):

  18. X570 Crosshair VIII Hero: Latest BIOS (1105), but no Eco-Mode in AMD Master

    I've updated to the latest BIOS (1105) for my X570 Crosshair VIII Hero, but still don't see an Eco-Mode in AMD Ryzen Master. Is there some option I'm supposed to turn on in the BIOS to unlock that?...
  19. Updated BIOS. Need to Update Anything Else?

    I'm not sure where to put this, but I just updated to the latest BIOS for my Crosshair VIII Hero motherboard (AMD X570 chipset) and I don't know if I need to update anything else. Windows...

    Sorry for beating this dead horse some more. But, how hard can it be for a company to keep its support forums in sync with their actual products? It's not rocket science. It should be in the...

    Thanks for the reply. I appreciate the confirmation. I'm holding off a bit on the new BIOS to see if people have any horrible issues with it. So far, the only thing I've seen is that it might mess...
  22. Crosshair VIII Hero: CPU Temperature Swings?

    In absolute terms the Ryzen 7 3700X CPU temperatures on my Crosshair VIII Hero seem fine. According to HWINFO, the CPU sensors usually report temperatures around:

    CPU (Tctl/Tdie) = in the 40s C...

    +1 to this. I came here to ask the same thing. Right now, I'm posting in the Other Motherboards section. But, that's a not-very-satisfying work-around.

    I'm still in the "rough-in" stage of tuning these fans/temperatures. But, with the addition of the thermal sensor, I'm much happier with the fan noise variance. I'm using a Define R6 USB-C case...

    Thanks for confirming Step Up and Down. But, they don't seem to be working. That's OK for me now, since I'm using the ambient air in the case via the T_Sensor as the controlling temperature and...
