The AGESA 18.104.22.168b is showing substantial improvements in memory compatibility and we've been able to push much higher frequencies than previously such as 7200+ in certain configurations with manual overclocking. We're going to work through our AM5 boards and offer optional BIOS updates that include this AGESA firmware for all of our PowerSpec customers. Below we'll list the systems and the current status. If you're looking for a BIOS for a board, please reply and let us know, we can change our priority list.
ASUS Prime X670E-Pro WIFI - G907 - BIOS Passed - 1809
ASRock X670E Steel Legend - G904/G905/G906 - Passed - X670ESL1.28.MS01
ASUS TUF Gaming X670E PLUS WIFI - G712 - Passed - 1636
Note: By default M.2_2 is set to x2 speed by default. You can change this to x4, it will disable SATA ports 5 and 6. This setting is under Advanced - Onboard Device Configuration.
ASRock B650M-C - G514/G713 - Working on BIOS.
MSI Pro B650-P WIFI - G714 - ETA 11/2. Currently repeating out memory testing. Current BIOS has no issues running 2DPC of the factory RAM on the XMP.
ASUS Prime B650M-A AX II - G716 - Restarted qualification on 1654.BIOS passed. Starting memory qualification. Expected release is 9/12.
We'll work through our list as quickly as possible and post the new BIOS versions here. Please let us know if you have any questions.
My G714 with B650-P is still having stability issues after updating BIOS as instructed here https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/13660/attention-powerspec-g714-potential-instability
Are you going to issue an update based on the latest version of AGESA 22.214.171.124c in the near future? I have to disable XMP just to be able to use the system.
Currently I'm still working around stability issues on the new 126.96.36.199c firmware with the RAM in this unit, that we did not see with the 1M6 BIOS. It's very near the edge and easily to stabilize. Recommend sticking to 1M6 now. Please load the XMP then increase DRAM Voltage from 1.2V to 1.25V. Lets see if that stabilizes it.
Memtest86, test 7, 8 and 9. Should complete within 2 hours, you'll have a pretty good indication: https://www.memtest86.com/
Just started testing on a new BIOS with the 188.8.131.52 AGESA. I'll update this thread as testing progresses.
I wouldn't touch VDDP, but to adjust the voltage, just type in the number and it should change.
It was very close if that stabilized it. The new BIOS with AGESA 184.108.40.206 passed memory testing. I'll probably have that ready next week.
Closer but still off. No failures are acceptable on Memtest, except for test 13 on non-ECC RAM. I'm going to email you a BIOS update if you'd like to test it.
My brother just purchased 2 weeks ago a G714 with the 1M6 BIOS. He is plagued by memory instability and blue screens. Is this updated BIOS something that you can have him test as well? If so, please send me the update and I can forward it on to him.
I won't have access until Monday morning. Suggest trying the beta from MSI here: https://download.msi.com/bos_exe/mb/7D78v192.zip
Our BIOS will be based on this with some fixes. I'll get you a link Monday morning if the new BIOS isn't ready.
Thank you for the quick response. We will update it tomorrow with the MSI version and post our findings.
FYI, We never updated the BIOS to the MSI beta version. We did as you suggested in an earlier comment, to increase the DRAM Voltage from 1.2V to 1.25V. This has fixed all of my brother's problems and is going on day 6 without any issues. Once you have an official BIOS version for us to try, we will continue the testing.
Waiting on some USB port mapping fixes from MSI right now, though the BIOS is fine. These fixes are only really relevant for direct I/O mapping with virtual machines. Right now the new BIOS is testing stable in a 4x16GB@DDR5-5600 configuration, which is impressive.
1MC under the MSI Pro B650-P WIFI - G714. AGESA 220.127.116.11. We're doing 2DPC on the XMP profile with no stability issues.
We're not planning to push this one as that'll potentially create issues for customers who don't have the issue. It'll disable XMP. Since the issue is intermittent, we're offering this as a manual update for improved memory compatibility down the road. If you need help flashing, let me know.
No harm in trying it. The board has flashback built in if you need to roll back. I have not tested it yet, and keep in mind when you flash the MSI BIOS, your SMBIOS data changes and we no longer manage the drivers that are delivered automatically through windows update.
I'm having memory instability issues with my g714 (talking hundreds of errors on memtest86)
under the "E7D78AZ1.1MC" above it says to select BIOS E7D78AZ1.1MB
is that correct, 1MB, not 1MC?
and do i want XMP on or off, with that? i'm assuming ENABLED on profile 1 ?
thank you for your time
Both 1MB and 1MC are in the package. I'll remove 1MB. It had a minor typo in the SMBIOS data that wouldn't have any negative effects. Either will work.
XMP on, Profile 1.
JEDEC is 4800 on that RAM. The EXPO profile is 5600 and that's what you should load. You'll want to load the EXPO Profile from the XMP menu after flashing as it will reset and you should be good to go.
Glad the system is working normally. Let us know if you run into any other issues with it.
Hey Mike -
reading the last couple comments on the thread here from @eeeeyuke ^
I'm on BIOS v1MC with the A-XMP Profile 1 selected
is that correct? or how do I know if i'm on the EXPO profile specifically?
I'm dealing with frequent crashes while gaming.
Task manager will show you frequency, but CPU-Z on the memory tab will show you that the timings are correct.
appreciate your help, Mike
CPU-Z is showing DRAM frequency as ~2800MHz, so that seems all good.
I just purchased & ran the Karhu RAM test and I'm getting errors almost immediately...
are there any other specific tests I could run to help isolate the issue here, or could they just be faulty sticks?
again, thank you for your help.
