    ROG CROSSHAIR VIII HERO(WI-FI) BIOS 2103 High Instability/Crashes/

    Hi,
    I have tried out 2103 last night (from 1302). I started noticing occasional reboot-crash. After ruling out every device and driver I found the bios update to be the culprit.

    The system was so unstable it crashed even in bios with no peripherals plugged in. I have reverted BIOS to 1302 by flashback port/button (lifesaver) and the system is stable again with no issues.

    No OC or modifications in bios besides these items:

    -DOCP to default 3200 profile (4 x 16 GB Trident Z (NO RGB))
    -CPU fan curve to silent and PWM
    -Other fans only to PWM, standard

    Specs:

    Crosshair VIII Wifi
    3900x
    64gb TridentZ (4x16) - G.Skill Trident Z, DDR4, 32 GB,3200MHz, CL14 (F4-3200C14D-32GTZ)
    Samsung SSD NMVE 512 GB 970 PRO M.2 (main)
    Samsung SSD NMVE 1 TB 970 EVO M.2 (secondary)
    MSI RTX 2080
    be quiet! Dark Power Pro P11 1200W

    Hi,

    Would you say your reboots/crashes were similar to what is described here:*https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc/co...50ma_wifi_and/

    I've been experiencing random black screens with immediate reboot when I enable DOCP.*

    Hi,
    I would say that it's the same crash. However in my case it also occurred sometimes without DOCP on 2103.

    I installed 2103 and temps went crazy. I look and the current in HWM is 52 to 56 amps. What are you guys seeing for current on your boards? Been trying to figure this out for two days of constant crashing.

    same issue, messy bios version

    I had the same issue, I wondered why this bios was stated on reddit as beta while it was not marked as beta on the website some days later it was stated as stable bios on reddit too, from u/ASUSTechMKTJJ. (https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comment..._viii_hero_no/)

    I installed the new bios via UEFI and set everything on default and started to type in my settings.
    Suddenly the pc just reboot, while I´m in the bios....
    So it won´t be any sudden windows issue.

    Okay, I though maybe bad luck. Lets type in the settings.
    Typed in all my stable settings from 1302 and started.
    So far so good run a few cinebench test worked good. Played some RS6, everything fine. Chilling in the evening on twitch and discord.
    Restart....
    Next day I set everything on standard let run a karhu test over 10 hours while I was at the homeoffice.
    No issues no restart.
    After work turned of karhu, chillin on twitch...
    restart.
    turned on pc went to bios to check something...
    restart in the bios again.
    Flashed 1302 on USB2 did a bios flashback => Everything runs smooth no issues.
    After the 2103 BIOS was announced on reddit as final bios I gave it another try. (https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comment...and_other_am4/)
    This time with bios flashback to avoid any bad flashing issue.
    moved to bios to confirm the optimised settings.
    Restart...

    Went back to 1302 everything is fine again.

    This is the first time since 10 years ASUS Mainboards that I encountered such a messy bios

    I have decided to give the 2103 second change. Will try some advices from others topics here on on reddit. Firstly will do clean flash with Flashback tool. Then will apply DOCP profile. Next I will increase DDR voltage from 1.35 to 1.36 as it is suggested by Ryzen Dram calculator. And i will increase the dram current limit from 100% to 110%. Keep fingers crossed.

    Still, if you don't need to have newest bios (any reason ) - you should keep the 1302. It's rock solid.

    Nothing but crashes with 2103. Flashed to 2010 and not a single issue. Going to skip 2103 for sure until bugs are ironed out.

    I cannot believe they released the 2103 BIOS in that state (2010 was also a turd).

    "Instability" is not a strong enough word for this BIOS. Restarts, memory errors, BSODs, restarts from inside the bios, booting failures...

    WTF are you doing ASUS, this is the most expensive motherboard I ever bought from you and this is what I get? I never had to deal with such a piece of **** BIOS.

    You should remove the 2103 from the support page, you are just damaging your customers and losing their time. It is outrageous.

    You would have to do extremely well from now on for me to even consider ASUS in the future. Fk this!

    Keep with the 1302 Bios until they fix this gigantic mess.
