    New Encore BIOS 0505 is out

    https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards...Desk_Download/

    Looks like they have improved stability. Maybe XMP memory issues are addressed.

    from ASUS website:

    "ROG RAMPAGE VI EXTREME ENCORE BIOS 0505
    01. [E] Improve system performance and stability
    Before running the USB BIOS Flashback tool, please rename the BIOS file (R6EE.CAP) using BIOSRenamer"

    Edit:
    Checked the BIOS module content with UBU. It is the same as in 0504 (same EFI, OROMs for storage, network etc, and same CPU mCodes etc) - the only thing different is the ASUS Board specific BIOS code. that should hopefully address XMP.

    Well funny part is, despite the statement of improved performance in the two bios versions after 401 performance is down by almost 200 pnts in cinebench for me.

    10980xe 5GHz used to get up to 5050pnts now its more 4850 or 4870 at best... exact same settings. Also stability is slightly worse.

    Rolling back to 401 always fixes this fortunately.

    We would have to see if it is because of the bios itself or if it is because of the last microcode (difference between 0401 and 050x)

    EDIT : for Cascade Lake-X, of course

    Well this is the first bios for the encore board that lets me put the AI Overclock to XMP and it will boot with my 4266MHz ram in it. Every other bios i have had to set the memory to manual and down clock to 4200MHZ so maybe they have at least fixed the XMP profiles that so many others have had issues with.

    Still boots to cpu q code 38 and stops, restarts normally into windows. Wish that was fixed. Only occurs with a cold power off boot.

    I also have bios 505, like 504, reset at cold power off. Samsung b-die CL14 3200 do not want to work stable in XMP mode. In bios 401 not any of the above problems. As I wrote in my previous thread - bios series 5xx is also not for me. We are waiting for bios 06xx.
    I am very glad that Asus-Engineers has not yet forgotten about us. But for now the work is going weakly ...
    (After all, I think it's a great x299 board. Read reviews on amazon.de)

    I completely cleared the bios 0401 settings, reset the motherboard and removed the battery on the motherboard for the night.
    Then I set bios 0401 completely by default.
    I migrated to version 0505.
    The memories work correctly in XMP mode.
    Unfortunately, enabling the ERP-ready S4 + S5 function causes the computer to start incorrectly.
    After starting, a single reset occurs and then the computer properly loads bios and OS Win10.
    I return to 0401.
    Version 0505 (&0504) has an internal error. It is a pity that it does not work for me.

    Performance on Cascade Lake-X CPU's is definitely down starting from the 050X Bios Revisions. I can only guess it's the new microcode.
