    I'll be assembling my new components next weekend and will update the bios on my board to this new version during the build.

    I've had no problems with the BIOS, but as mentioned, I've noticed nothing different about things either. My benchmarking ran consistently just a tad faster with 1201 than with the old 1105, but the difference was so minuscule (half a percent to a full percent) as to be in the realm of experimental error (especially as I'm not exactly scientific in how I run those). If someone suffers from the problems it fixes (noted in the first three bullets of the description), then it's probably worthwhile. But for others, it's nice but non-necessary.

    Hello Everyone,I have a simple question the 3900x has a base clock of 3800 MHZ but for some reason mine runs at 3716mhz on all cores not 3816 mhz but 3716. Why is this?

    base clock is 100x38 = 3800 you have spread spectrum on giving your 99.77 and not sure about why you have 37.25 multiplier. I also don't recognise the program, perhaps check with HWinfo to confirm.

    I can't find any spread spectrum settings enabled all the ones I can find I disabled.
