Hello all,
Thanks for the wonderfull work you did on this mod bios, i got a huge boost on Windows boot time with my SSD Samsung 850 EVO. i am still wondering how Asus couldn't have seen this. Now the weird part is that my Crosshair V Formula boots faster than my Crosshair V Formula-Z which is also running the mod bios from this forum (but this is another story).
Anyway, i am coming back to you because i do have a small problem with the latest mod bios with the AGESA version 1.5.0.2. I wanted to use that version because i prefer to keep cool&quiet activated for some obvious reason of power saving when the computer is in idle mode. With that bios version, no way to change any of the settings around voltage and frequencies. I used to overclock my AMD FX 8320 to 4.7Ghz (the same frequency as my FX 9590 running on the Crosshair V Formula-Z the other computer), but with that mod bios, no chance to get any changes at all, everything is always running in stock mode, even the memory frequency is completely unchanged no matter which settings you choose. The only frequency which is still working is the FSB, voltage doesn't apply at all.
Could you have a look why is this happening ? I was about to use the batch file to upload the AGESA 1.5.0.2 into the bios running the version 1.5.0.7 which is applying correctly frequencies and voltage to get back the cool&quiet feature, but not sure if this is safe, never did any mod bios before ?
Thanks for the help.

Sorry for the late response. I got some reports lately of this and i decided to revert it back to the original v1.5.0.0 which seems to be the only version where everything is working as it should. I updated the first post with the details and the new download link.

BIOS updated to v6.

Changelog:

[Changed] - AMD AGESA OrochiPI v1.5.0.0 -----> AMD AGESA OrochiPI v1.5.0.7 (or v1.5.0.2)

@Phoenix48 Hello, thanks for your amazing job that u did with the bios mod. I need some help, i got a Phenom X6 1100t running with a Asus Crosshair V Formula, with the v6 ruinning with the Agesa v1.5.0.0 basically dont change the clocks on it. I dont know if it is any known issue, or something related only with the Phenom and Athlon. On 1703 the OC was pretty good, stable at 4.2ghz + 3000mhz on the NB, but really slow boot speed. Rn im in with the reverse problem.

@Phoenix48

I've unfortunately had no luck getting my cpu or memory clocks to apply with the current bios mod (v6), although voltages seem to be applying. CnQ is working again though! I'm not sure if anyone else is having the same issues.

I've had to revert back to v5 without CnQ working, but I'd really love to have that feature. At any rate, thanks for all of the work you've done on this mod!

EDIT:

I see @Graphitero seems to be having the same issue as well.

I can apply overclocking using AI Suite II, but it doesn't stick after a reboot, and I of course can't change some important settings through that, either.

After many tests and being out of solutions and clues other that it must be related somehow to the AGESA version, i decided to rebuilt the Bios mod from scratch to see if it makes any difference because i was not able understand why simply replacing a newer version of the AGESA by the old original one would cause this, or, to say it differently, would not correct the problem. So i suspected that somehow, that i can't comprehend even now, that a newer version of the AGESA must somehow modify some other part of the Bios permanently so reverting back to an older version like the original one would not correct the problem. The only way to test my theory was to rebuild it from scratch from the original Bios with the old AGESA version (1.5.0.0) and, that way, be sure that it never had any newer version in it.

The result is that the CPU overclock is now working (i tested it myself successfully).

BIOS updated to v7.

Changelog:

[Fixed] - CPU overclock not working due to some unknown remaining persistent modifications in the Bios from newer AGESA version.

I've been running the custom bios for quite a bit at this point and I have to say it works wonders for the most part.

I run the
"CrosshairV-Formula-ASUS-1703.ROM with AMD AGESA OrochiPI v1.5.0.7 mod v5 (2017-06-11)"

and tried the

"CrosshairV-Formula-ASUS-1703.ROM with AMD AGESA OrochiPI v1.5.0.0 mod v6 (2017-12-10)"

before you updated it to the v7 version. Just wanted to add to the v6 discussion real quick because I had to revert to the v5 due to crashing (would crash about 3 minutes into a game of league of legends, randomly crash a few hours after general run time). Just want to add with the v5 version I'm currently running, it spits out a random system memory value to Radeon settings. I tested this when I tried the v6 bios and it showed the correct amount. I run 16GB of DDR3 and when I'm running the v5 bios it shows some ridiculous number like "2422641 GB". It's random as well and no where close to any of the other memory types I have running on my machine. My storage space is close to 1.5TB, Ram is 16GB and GPU is 8GB.

Anyhow just figured I'd put that here to let you know about it. Thanks for all the work on it by the way, it has increased performance on my machine quite a bit and given me time before I need to actually upgrade to my next platform.

I updated my bios but now i dont know if it is only with me but corsair link doesnt work at this moded bios, someone could help me with that?

#38 RE: [OFFER] Asus Crosshair V Formula 1703 mod BIOS by pershoot 07.01.2018 02:55

Hi Phoenix.

Can you please advise on how I can flash back the original firmware for Asmedia? The updater fails to flash it back. The backup pulled 3 FW files.

I'm seeing some issues and would like to test.

It created DE0_0253.BIN, DE1_0253.BIN and DE2_0253.BIN

Thank you.

#39 RE: [OFFER] Asus Crosshair V Formula 1703 mod BIOS by pershoot 07.01.2018 11:55

was able to flash back. chopped off from 64kb.

noticed some things:
-I cant seem to invoke F12 to select a boot device on the fly.

Can you please confirm this on your side?

Thx.

@pershoot

Contrary to almost all other motherboard that uses F12, the Crosshair Formula use F8 to select an other disk. There was no mod on that, it was like that even in the original bios. And yes i can confirm that F8 works.

@StPablo

I am sorry but i will need more details. For starter, i don't know what Corsair link you are refering to. Please provide a better description of your problem.

#42 RE: [OFFER] Asus Crosshair V Formula 1703 mod BIOS by pershoot 07.01.2018 17:43

Thank you Phoenix. It's been a while! Thank you for refreshing my memory (not sure why I thought it was F12).
