    This is the worst bios so far, after couple of days without any issues I now get daily or even multiple times that my PC goes to blackscreen without rebooting. I need to remove power in order to reboot. On my Dark hero 5950x

    3201 for me

    Yes, I had to revert to 3201 as it seems to be the best for me with a little extra juice for the SOC as I have 64GB at 4000mhz.

    Even then I too have to remove the power now and again as the RAM training seems to have issues now and again. Must just be on the edge of stability.

    Once it is up and running though it is great. Shame about these niggles.

    I read only critics about this release... I must say that IMHO is one of the best I've tried.
    I swapped RAM kit (both Corsair B-Die) along with installing the new BIOS and I can set them stable @3800MHz CAS 16 with a very lower voltage (1.35 vs. 1.48) and all MC voltages in Auto. I'm still testing but at the moment for me is a joy... if everything it's ok, I'm gonna try CAS 15 or 14.

    I have to agree. I originally started with 3003 shipping BIOS. Worked pretty well but had a spontaneous reboot or 2. 3204 has been trouble free the last 5 days. I did lose a little off my singel core boost and top out at 4925mhz now. All core doing fine at 4600mhz with RAM at 3600 CAS 14 1T with SOC at 1.125v. not a hiccup thus far. Aside from hoping to get my single core back to 5ghz, this bios works for me. I hope it holds.

    I'm now back to 3202 which lasted the whole night that wasn't the case with 3204.

    So far been as stable as 2206 for me, lost a little multicore perf & gained a little single core, couple % either way is not noticeable in practice. Haven't learned the new bios options yet so I don't know how it'd be if I started pushing, but I'm GPU bound anyway so not generally going to do anything for me. This is with 4x 16GB unapproved sticks tool.

    For anyone who has lost some single core performance after updating to the latest bios, I have found a workaround that has worked great for me. I am now boosting to ~5Ghz once again in single core benchmarks / execution. The key is going to advanced / AMD overclocking / Precision boost overdrive / curve optimizer. In curve optimizer choose the per core option and only work on your two best cores of CCD 0 (they are usually the same cores that Ryzen Master will flag as the preferred cores for Windows). For me setting a negative offset for Core 0 and Core 2 in the curve optimizer was key. I actually found that although Core 0 was flagged as the best overclocking core my best overclocking core was actually Core 2. My settings were Core 0 - 10 and Core 2 - 14 both negative, your settings may be different as I am also running the CPU per core ratio (per CCX) overclock which will set a static all core overclock with dynamic OC switcher (mine set at 70 amps) for single core boost and I'm also running a negative Vcore offset. The important take away is the higher you set the negative per core offset in the curve optimizer the higher your best cores will boost, of course if you push them to hard you will get random reboots or random reboot with CPU overheating error (even though you haven't gone over 70C). With my settings I have an all core static overclock of 4.65Ghz (working on 4.7Ghz now) and I also now have PBO boost clocks of Core 0 4.975Ghz and Core 2 of 5.025Ghz, which with my other overclocks (static all core and RAM) is as far as I can push the PBO boost. I'm getting ~650 single core score in Cinebench R20, ~700 single core in CPUZ, ~3700 in Passmark single core.

    It takes a long time to find the correct overclock settings for a particular processor, but the end results are definitely worth the tweaking efforts.

    Two days ago, I updated my BIOS to version 3204. So far, no problems at all. I'll wait until the end of the month and, if it's still OK, I'll update my spousal unit's computer as well.

    3204 + 5900x

    been using 3204 since 29.01. It has worked perfectly for me.

I use to get ~640pts in Cinebench R20 and am now ~636pts. Boost frequency was above 5Ghz and in Cinebench R20 is now topping at 4924Mhz. I have tweaked everything I can think of and the only difference was updating the bios. In my case I really didn't have much of a choice as my old bios (version 2601) was having ram issues in gaming loads. Tried to find bios 3202 to see if it would fix the loss of single core boost but the only bios versions I could find on Asus website were 2601, 3003, and 3204. Hopefully the next bios release will correct the single core boosting.
    Happy to send you 3202 if you like via dropbox. Let me know.
