    Z370-E 15. december BIOS 0605 & 5605

    Please share your experiences and issues with these bios versions. Most likely identical but with different settings with the beta driver having all cores synced (although you can't tell due to the bad descriptions and naming schemes).

    Version 5605 Beta Version

    I'll share myself once I am done testing.

    It still wont XMP my Corsair Vengeance CMK32GX4M4B3600C16 4x8-Kit. All sorts of BSOD and error msg from Bios that my ME-downgrade had failed, meSpi,.. something. Same as before, not even a latency till 20-20-20-38 will let them boot any OS, up to 1.40v neither. VCCIO VCCSA both upped by Auto 1.3 and 1.35 ( maybe too high for Z370/8700K ?? )

    A bit dissapointing My Z270 Prime-A ran them just fine with XMP, tho not from the beginning on, that needed a few bios updates as well, so there is hope.

    For the Z370-F, this is what you can read under this new 0605 (I wonder what is the logic for the numbering) BIOS:
    ROG STRIX Z370-F GAMING BIOS 0605
    Enable Intel(R) Speed Shift Technology.

    Speed Shift Technology is supposed to be the replacement technology for Intel Speed Step Technology (EIST), that allows the CPU to adjust its frequency according to what the OS requests based on the load. With this new approach introduced with Skylake and Windows 10, the CPU can set its frequency itself, determining the right value for the need. The advantage is said to be the speed of the frequency switch (1ms vs 25ms says Intel) and the unparking of cores (35ms vs 100ms), making the system more reactive. I have never read any proof of the reality of this assertion, but if it is properly managed and does not induce any issue (even more audio popping for instance...), it cannot be bad.

    Maybe someone from Asus (Mr Raja, please) could confirm ?

    I would have tested by myself, but the current BIOS version (0420) of my Z370-F runs fine (except for audio crackling) and I am afraid to lose stability (such as RAM XMP compatibility). I am not sure it is possible to revert to an older BIOS version, some people on this forum indicate that no.

    I also have a Z370-F and speed-shift and XMP works fine. I'm not having any sound issues with neither the onboard sound nor my USB DAC. The system feels more snappy and responsive as expected even with the balanced power profile selected.

    BTW, speed shift can still be disabled in the UEFI BIOS settings if that's what you prefer. The new update just gives us the option to use it if we want to.

    So far I've not seen much improvement in this BIOS release. My G.Skill F4-3600C16Q-32GTZR kit's XMP settings still don't allow the computer to boot and run stable unless I ramp back the mhz to 3000mhz from 3600mhz.
    Also still seems hard to get a stable overclock that doesn't have weird voltage spiking.

    It seems the boards dont like the CL16 settings at all. Fastest I can get stable in all tests is 5.0/3200CL16-16-16-36-2.

    All 3600/CL16 in QVL have 16-18-18-36, none is a straight 16-16-16-36. Maybe the Z370/8thgen-IMC dont like to go higher, curious to see if that can be fixed.

    My latency at 5.0/3200 is ~50ns. My Z270 using the exact same kit at XMP is at 40.8ns Memory Latency ( Aida64 Benchmark ).

    To me, it looks such, that the 8thgen IMC is not as tolerant as the 7thGen/Z270 combo is.

    Just tried 18-18-18-38 2ns at both 3600 and 3200mhz. 3600 didn't boot and 3200mhz crashed in Windows after 2 minutes.

    New kits are seldom added to the QVL post launch timeframe. Not ideal, but nothing new, either.
