    Bios 4004
    Has lowered Temps / Vcore
    Looks like the Vcore is not as aggressive when running idle
    I get around 0.91v which keeps my 5900 around 36-40c idle...

    Best Bios so far (at least for me and 5900x)

    I've experienced an issue with the 4004 BIOS breaking Armoury Crate RGB with the GEN2_1 header on my Dark Hero board. With the 4004 BIOS installed if I completely uninstall Armoury crate then any RGB on that header turns on. As soon as Armoury Crate installs and enables any ARGB devices stop working on that particular header unless I set it to a Static Color only. I have also done a complete un-install and re-install of Armoury Crate once the 4004 BIOS is installed and the issue continues.

    If I downgrade the BIOS to the previous 3904 version (or at least what can be downgraded with that version) then the full ARGB control returns once Armoury Crate is running.

    Thumbs up ARGB port not working after bios update

    One ARGB port not working after the 4004 update. I updated from 3801 to 4004. The second ARGB port (bottom side port) working normally but the first one (Near onboard power button) has completely died after the bios update. I downgrade to 3801 again and fortunately, it starts working again.

    After I updated to 4004 I started "Aura Creator" and it said something like updating my RGB Ports or something like that and restarted my pc. This might help of you are having trouble with your ports

    (If you have Armoury Crate installed open it and try running a update)

    Already been updated before and there is no new update. I changed the second argb ports devices to the first one and no signal from the first port.

    Did you run any pre/post update benchmarks?
    Reduced idle temps is good, i just hope that it was intended

    Same thing with me - I find both headers only work if I disable the LED strip in Aura sync or if I select a static colour.
    If I choose a basic effect, only the second header works. If I use a custom one from Aura Creator, neither of them work.

    Something is very glitched with this. Glad I'm not the only one though.

    Exactly. Are you using the latest bios with the bug or downgraded? 3904 have some problem so I'm using 3801.
