    Tried 2206 just for grins and my system would not even post after the upgrade. Pressed the power button and it immediately turns off. I had to Flashback to 1302 and it's fine again. I am done messing with these until I know it is going to be stable. I don't want to end up with a bricked board. I a running a 3950X with 32GB of DDR 3200.

    Hello,

    Did you attempt to use a profile from the previous build when this occurred?

    What method did you use to flash 2206?*

    Thanks for the reply. I used the EZ Flash from the UEFI. I reset to default before and after the flash. I did load a saved profile, but I never had an issue with saved profiles before. My system is completely stable with this profile on 1302. I am not overclocking my CPU at all just default with XMP and some devices turned off that I am not using.

    Well, after a couple weeks of testing... i had two ''out of the blue'' restarts.

    Both restarts did happen during ''idle'', one of them in front of my eyes.

    The system is perfectly stable with 1302 (tested during months of use) and the B-Die Samsung memories have been tested using Karthu MemTest and passed the 6000% score mark perfectly with both, 1302 and 2206 BIOS. I could not tell why in hell those restarts happened, I am using Windows 10 2004 BTW.

    The 2206 BIOS still have problems and it is not 100% stable. If you value stability, the 1302 BIOS is the only option ATM, sadly.

    I hope ASUS can speed the %$##! up and fix this BIOS before next year.

    PD: here some colleagues have exactly the same issue with me, random restarts at idle despite the system being stable during stress tests. https://www.overclock.net/forum/11-a...hread-288.html

    Well, few days now back on 1302, no issues whatsoever...

    New BIOSes, starting from 2010, are ALL bugged.

    ASUS should fix this as soon as possible if they want to have any reputation regarding AMD boards, if there is any left...

    I posted on this and related BIOS threads a few weeks ago, as I could not get my system stable at either XMP or optimized defaults. Long story short, it turns out that my CPU was faulty. I ordered a replacement 3700X, and now the system is stable including on newer BIOS versions. I have tested 2103 extensively, and I'm now on 2206 so far so good. In my case at least, the BIOS was not at fault, and it was faulty hardware. It sounds like other users have different problems. Just posting in case this helps someone else.

    Attention

    I found something that could be really interesting to all of us who are suffering random restarts with the newer BIOS.

    I am talking about the "CCD/IOD VDDG" voltages. If you are using values such as "1.050" or "1.000" or lower, try bumping up the voltage to "1.075" for both.

    Meanwhile, I recommend leaving the "SOC" at "1.1" and the "Vddp" to "0.950". That´s all. (Vddp is extreme sensitive, too low will crash, too high will crash, leave it at 0.950 unless you know what you are doing)

    My "random restarts" seems to have disappeared after increasing sightly the voltages for CCD/IOD VDDG, please if you are having this issue, try and report back. You maybe need a couple of days, or even more, to be 100% sure this have fixed the issue. I have been testing for 3 days now.

    Try use bios flashback method to flash the newer bioses - I don't think EZFlash can flash the whole firmware any more. Thats what we have to do on the CH7.

    Hello thanks for the recommendation. I have sinc flashed to 2206 and started from scratch with my BIOS settings. So far things seem Ok but it has only been a couple days. I will report back if any more issues pop up.
