    Nice memory settings. I cant match those,

    3200mhz @ 16-16-16-16-38-64-1T @1.4v
    I spoke too soon, q code 8 is back again, after 2hrs of prime.

    @Raja @MarshallR @SilentScone any ideas what is causing this. I never had a single Q code 8 before BIOS 6903

    Any help appreciated.

    p.s

    I have noticed that the FAN CONTROL is now completely opened up in the BIOS, you can set temps manually now for low /med/high. that is a nice touch.

    After playing with this Bios further, I am finding out alot of my previous tweaks don't work as well, and even some small pushes can cause a Q-code infinity loop of sorts that the board gets stuck in or I get F9 and 08 codes. The worse part I think, is I am finding out I cannot revert to an older Bios, as I get the following message: selected file is not a proper BIOS. anyone else having problems like this?

    Ok for Bios revert setting you must use biosflashback and rename the previous Bios to C6E.CAP this is the rename name for Crosshair VI EXTEME and insert the USB on the USB Bios flash back port on the motherboard press the biosflashback bottom for 3 seconds and wait until the blue light stop blinking, the flash procedure take a little bit more time than usual with this method.
    Finally I manage to get rid of the led code 8. This setting on my Bios work very stable for my Ryzen 1800X OC to 40.20ghz

    It's not bad, problem is I can still do better on a cheap MSI B450 board for 1/3 the price and slightly warmer VRMs. I just sold the C6E and bought an x470 pro carbon. The Ryzen platform doesnt need such an extreme VRM, the main reason I got a crosshair was for the excellent BIOS and OC potential but this board has really fallen short of my expectations which were pretty high based on my experience with maximus boards. The C7H is definitely the best board out there, but after the C6E and for the price, I can't justify it.

    I bought mine second hand on Amazon for a very low price so no complaint about price on a Top of the line X370 asus motherboard , let's hope next bio wich will be the official support for Zen 2 will fix all those issues if not , I will go straight ahead with a X570 chipset motherboard

    Yeah I tried Bios Flashback and it is a Bust. This Bios is problematic. Certain things look promising but overall issues. I want to say part of the reason may be that this is a lead up Bios to the official Zen 2 supported Bios which will be 7002. ASUS announced this board will get Zen2 Ryzen 3000 support and 7002 is the official Bios to support the upcoming processor family. Heres hoping.

    Edit: So after downloading Bios 6401 again trying Flashback, I was finally able to go back. I urge anyone to stay away from Bios 6903 as it feels more like a Beta Bios that added features and changed some functionality but is still not stable enough. I would wait until Bios 7002 is launched with Zen2 support. I am hoping by than the new Bios subsystem will be ironed out. Memory is the biggest issue with this X370 based Motherboard.

    I can no longer recommend BIOS 6903, ive rolled back to 6401 its far more stable no error code q 8 runs my ram DOCP 3200Mhz OOB without any config. far better. I'm skipping 6903 and if 7002 is the same then im selling this board and moving to another manufacturer. Absolutely abysmal BIOS.

    Totally agree with you , I flash back to Bios 6401 , my oc setting with 6903 doesn't work stable at all , hope that Zen 2 Bios 7002 will be the one that fix all those memory issues . I will keep this board for testing with a new Zen 2 cpu but I look forward to buy a new X570 board and this time is not gonna be Asus

    7002 is Official Now. Time to test it out

    Asus just dropped Bios 7002 with some further refinements and a fix to Precision Boost. Below is all the fixes and updates.

    ROG CROSSHAIR VI EXTREME BIOS 7002
    1. Update AM4 ComboPI 0.0.7.2A for next-gen processors and to improve CPU compatibility
    2. Fixed an issue with Precision Boost values
    3. Improved memory compatibility
    4. Enhance system security
    ASUS strongly recommends installing AMD chipset driver 18.50.16 or later before updating to this BIOS version.
    " Before running the USB BIOS Flashback tool, please rename the BIOS file (C6E.CAP) using BIOSRenamer.''
