    tried 1405, seems good, temps and chipset a bit lower and performance seems the same on R5 3600.
    Yes, that is what for I've paid 350 euros, to get a board that I will have to clear cmos in every bios update because asus is incompetent to make a quality check of their software!
    Irony aside, this is ultra bad for asus.

    The 1405 BIOS is ok, still on my Strix X570-F i can't set CMD to 2T it just ignores what you set in the BIOS and defaults to CMD 1T like before but atleast now i can boot and works at T1 when going past 3600MT/s so getting to 3733MT/s with 4x 8GB DIMM's is far far far less a pain in the ass as you have to use Ryzen master to do it and that thing keeps screwing up your settings. Gear down also appears to be getting ignored now too, but i can't be chewed with that right now. Prior to upgrading the BIOS i spent 3 hours on 1404 this morning in getting the damn thing to boot at 3733MT/s almost broke down in tears and was on the verge of snapping the bloody thing in two, but would you know it that it finally stuck on my last attempt. Temps appear a little lower and i am not seeing radical spikes like playing games is around 62C before it would be 68C then spikes to 80C then goes back down so it's less annoying on the ROG Ryujin 360 as the small fan which i have at 10% would go to 100% at 80C.

    Also why do you suggest clearing CMOS after upgrading the BIOS? i have never had to do that after upgrading the BIOS on past ASUS, Gigabyte or MSI boards, as all configuration loaded was already wiped during the upgrade anyway or is that more of a habit you have picked up?

    I still reserve judgement on the motherboard with the 1405 BIOS. i have been building computers for the last 30 years, since i was 7 years old and thus far anyway this has been the worst motherboard i have owned or even built for clients EVER. These BIOS releases don't feel retail release, but more like pre-alpha. Even as a day one owner of Ryzen and crosshair 6 with at the time Hynix memory had less issues than this thing with Samsung B-die.

    At stock or D.O.C.P (aka XMP) they are fine but i would suggest updating the BIOS to the latest revision.

    Hey guys,

    I'm about to buy this board and was trying to find information if there now is any control of the chipset fan in the latest bios versions?

    The only reason why I've been really struggling to buy any X570 boards are the chipset fans which seems like going back to the 90's. But what I've researched from endless googling is that this board is one of the most quiet ones. Of course some boards have fan stop feature but also some say that it's almost worst when you hear the fan spinning up and down all the time.

    I've read this whole thread and the impression is that the bios is not in that great shape? I'm now going to run 3700X and probably going to upgrade to 3950X when the prices go down, also not planning to overclock (at least for now).

    Any information would be extremely valuable from you owners!

    BIOS is just fine IMO, but the chipset cooling solution is the absolute worst you can find i think. They placed the fan just behind the GPU, so it will "cool" with hot air from the GPU. People are getting chipset temps up to the high 80's (degrees C). I fixed it, by removing the plastic cover from the board and installed a fan blowing directly to the chipset heatsink.

    My advice. Buy something else... Pay attention to the placement of the intake to the chipset fan, and avoid all boards where it's placed behind the GPU.

    Thanks for your honest advice! I've been actually looking into good X450/X470 boards just to skip the chipset fan completely. The rumors are that next X670 boards will be completely passive because of the bad rap the small fans have had. So maybe the smart thing now is to buy something cheaper that either can run the 3950X also, or just go with something ok and replace the motherboard next year with something brand new...

    Chipset on my board runs about 60deg, up to 68deg gaming but my gpu has a waterblock. PCH fan is inaudible.
    I've read temps can be lowered by replacing the heatsink pad with Kryonaught but haven't had a need to try it yet.
    Unfortunately the weak point of x570 was always going to be the use of a chipset fan.
    IMO, MSI appear to have the best implementation as far as chipset fans go but I don't like their boards.
