CPU - Ryzen 2700x
Mobo - X470 Gaming Wifi 7
RAM - 4 x 8GB G SKill Flare X 3200MHz
GPU - ROG Strix RTX 2070
So I decided I didn't have enough problems in my life so went ahead and updated my BIOS to the latest version.
Started by updating both my main and back up BIOSes to F31 and set the mobo switch to single BIOS to stop it falling over to the back up.
EC FW update tool ran and updated but with no reboot which I thought was strange but txt document in folder shows as PASS. Proceeded to then update my main BIOS to F50 which seemed to go ok but kept my back up to F31 as I knew it worked / was stable.
Not long after the update to F50, I checked Windows 10 Task Manager and the RAM speeds are no longer showing and 0.0MB is hardware reserved. A quick look in the BIOS shows the correct speeds / timings. Correct speeds also reported in HWinfo.
I decided to switch back to F31 (back up BIOS) and Task Manager now shows the correct RAM speeds along with 53.5MB being hardware reserved.
Did a bit of digging on forums but haven't seen this reported elsewhere so not sure if all is well. I saw on Reddit that Gigabyte recommend doing the EC FW update with only 1 stick of RAM installed (would've done that had I known so thanks Gigabyte for your excellent customer support /s) but no mention of this on the mobo support page.
Given that there was no reboot during the EC FW update process and now that the RAM speeds are not showing in Task Manager, did I mess it up? I was planning on getting a 3700x in a few months time so I can't check RAM compatibility until then so I just have to wait it out.
Has anyone else experienced similar behaviour? Eager to hear what others have experienced with using 4 RAM slots with a Zen 2 CPU on the same mobo (X470 Gaming Wifi 7) after the EC FW update.
