Q: What is different about a test (T#x) BIOS and beta (F#x) BIOS?
A: Test BIOS are usually reserved for internal testing. They are to test experimental features. These features may or may not make it to a BETA or even production BIOS.
Q: Why isn't there a test BIOS for my board?
A: Typically test BIOS are only on master boards. If the test goes well and we decide to implement the feature we will create a BETA bios for other applicable boards shortly after the test has concluded.
Q: XMP doesn't work!
Using slot A2/B2 - From CPU skip a slot, RAM, skip a slot, RAM. I cannot emphasize this enough. If you are helping someone T/S a problem this should be your first question.
Flash the latest BIOS
For debugging RAM please keep everything else default. Let us know what RAM you are using so we can look further.
Q: My RAM voltage goes to 1.2V when setting a CPU multiplier.
Your OC is too high or unstable. Try lowering the CPU multiplier and/or raising Vcore.
Q: I dont see my BIOS on the webpage!!!
We have tons of servers worldwide. If you don't see a file, or get access denied, it means the file hasn't propagated there yet. You need to go to the global page...
Here is an example of the US page: gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/X570-AORUS-MASTER-rev-10/ Here is an example of the global page: gigabyte.com/Motherboard/X570-AORUS-MASTER-rev-10/
Notice the only difference is the "/US". Simply remove that. For EU remove "/EU", etc... If you get the access denied message try the ASIA server. Its the same file, just a different mirror!
For anyone having issues with HTC VIVE on X370/X470 with Intel WIFI we are working with HTC and Intel on a permanent fix. In the mean time we have these specific BETA BIOS as a work around. Please note this is for VIVE users specifically.
Im using aorus master z390 with 9900k. Why all my cores at 4.7? isn't it should raise two of them to 5 and others 4.7?
Yes and no. It should boost 1-2 cores to 5.0 if and only if you are using less than 2 cores. If you are using multi threaded applications (IE Games) they should all be @ 4.7... You can use cinebench single core benchmark and you should see various cores bounce up to 5Ghz.
I have the Z390 Pro version and I had the same thing happen to me. However, I can provide steps in my case of when it happened.
I used the OC guide from the site and kept increasing the voltage by .01 per the instructions. It froze on me and I turned it off. I turned it back on pretty quickly and noticed that it booted twice and when looking in the Bios I noticed that the F5 bios was now displaying instead of the F6 that I had upgraded too.
1. Follow Guide to OC 2. voltage was at 1.31 3. PC Froze on stress testing 4. Turned off 5. Turned back on within 5 seconds of turning off. 6. Bios reset.
As a temporary workaround, I have saved the bios update and my stable 5GHZ OC on a flash drive.
This happen's when the board fails to initialize the BIOS. It flashed the backup BIOS, hence downgrading from F5 from F6.
Hey guys. Just got my 9700K and Aorus Master 5. Have a few questions in regard to Bios Setup and OC.
1. When overclocking do I have to adjust anything to not run into power limits? I read about Power throttling
2. Xmp. Should I activate the present or should I keep this off. Using Corsair Pro RGB 3200
3. Any other tips or tricks to a safe OC? Not that u haven't done this before but anything to look out for. What Temps to stay under and what voltage is the safe max. Also would you recommend AVX offset as I see even silicone lottery has a 2 AVX on their 5Ghz chips
I must add that for a while now my main Stability teeth has been OCCT. Would this still be fine for the newer chips or is it harsh?
The 9900K OC Guide should still apply. Only difference would be possibly using less voltage and/or going past 50x multiplier.
1. Nope, our VRM is designed for overclocking so the board has no power limits. It does have OCP and OTP protections, but that should not stop you from getting 5-5.3 Ghz depending on your CPU.
2. Yes! Activate it or you will not get 3200Mhz.
3. Safe max voltage 1.35, I'd try to keep the CPU temp under 90 but it all depends on your cooling... 5Ghz + AVX is going to require a good cooler. AVX offset will lower temps and voltage in things like prime, but also lowers AVX performance. Its a trade off on how hot you want your CPU. In terms of the board its more than capable of 5Ghz full AVX without throttling or overheating.
