    No, Ryzen 3000-only, 2000-series don't need a fix it already boosts as good as it can.

    We're left out in the cold again. The Stilt posted a custom X470-F BIOS with ABBA modded in based on 5216, but flashrom doesn't appear to support my motherboard. Asus made beta BIOSes with ABBA for almost every motherboard except ours it seems. At the rate it took us to get 5216, I'll be surprised if we get an official ABBA BIOS before October...

    I have just flashed Stilts version with Flashrom and it's working excellent.
    Follow the instructions from first post and from Veii

    Everything is working great as this imgur link is showing just now for 3700X + PBO: http://prntscr.com/p73s4l

    P.S. Only problem I am facing is 99.8 BCLK

    Ah, I was using Flashrom on Ubuntu since I thought that was the only way to run it. I didn't even notice that link to the special version. I'll give the DOS version a try.

    Hum I want to try this, but I'm afraid to brick my MB.
    I never did that before, I mean, install a custom BIOS.

    Why even bother with ABBA. It has been shown that overall performance has been sacrificed for the sake of one or two cores boosting a bit higher than before. Therefore in a game that actually utilizes more than two threads, worse performance can be expected. All this complaining about single core boost has caused AMD to prioritize focus in the wrong area. Hardware Unboxed showed that the same cpu achieved different results based on the motherboard it was installed on. The issue is really not the cpu but mainly the motherboard implantation of the bios which is out of AMD's hands. ABBA is a waste.

    If you are not sure, don't do it.
    Wait for public version from Asus.

    Not completely true, except performance uplift, which is right and not that much.
    However, regarding temps and voltage, it's definitely better!

    I see fewer temperature spikes, less temperature overall, better idle behavior and responsiveness on load.

    Definitely better regarding those things, which is better than less performance uplift

    Actually, most benchmarks are slightly better with ABBA, nothing looks to be sacrified. If anything, single core was below par before. And I'm talking about Asus implementation, I'm running SMU 46.49 from ABBA on Crosshair VII and the full ABBA on Prime X470-Pro. Results are better on the Prime Pro, I expect the full ABBA for Crosshair VII to be a uplift. Whenever it arrives.

    Only "bad" thing with Asus ABBA is power consumption is hard locked regardless of settings, 145W/95A for the 3900X. Only way to circumvent is to go full manual OC.

    Yeah, I mainly need an ELI5 version of the tutorial but a real ELI5


    So today I realized that I plugged my NVMe SSD at the "wrong" PCIe, not really wrong obviously but it was plug under the GPU, next to the chipset but no heater at all. So now I just put it above the GPU with the heater functioning. At first I selected the port below the GPU because it was easier for me to plug there.
