A friend of mine who has the ASRock x399 Taichi with new bios with the what sounds to be the same ram as you based on the timings you mentioned, had no issues setting it at 3200 cas 15, he used to have the zenith but could never get above 2933, switched to asrock an everything just worked. Said asus is dead to him now after spending as much as he did on a zenith gh and Received such poor support. I enjoy tinkering more than him so I don't really feel his pain. But this feels like I'm reliving my asus 990fx crosshair formula z days of relying on the bios modding community to keep my hardware updated. Always enjoy trying to squeeze every drop of performance out of obscure hardware.

@KraZy_SkitZy

yes the first round of zenith extreme was the "experimental baby"...the more mature platform became the zenith extreme alpha.
They concocted the alpha version because they sold us the beta version first!
then came the zenith extreme ii and the zenith extreme ii alpha on the trx40 platform. Asus could take a little more time and bake the silicon
a little longer than playing the "one hit wonder" game and work out some of the significant kinks beforehand.

I'm on the third board after two RMAs, and was annoyed enough to tell them give me the zenith extreme alpha on warranty and even offered the price differential.
First board was plainly DOA. Second board they tried switching my board to one that they had never issued the serial number to me, which goes to simple bait and switch fraud, because each motherboard has a unique serial number!!!

Needless to say, that proposal died on the order paper and $Count de Monet$ was just a dude well ahead of his time...

As it is, the infinity fabric should clock 1600Mhz for the 3200Mhz RAM and later models should clock 1800Mhz for 3600Mhz RAM.

The newer 500 series boards clock the infinity fabric to 2000Mhz for 4000Mhz RAM.

By high end cooling of the SOC and VRMs the 1600Mhz infinity fabric and 3200Mhz RAM should be within reach for the whole 64GB, even though it is technically beyond the spec sheet for the 2950X cpu.

I have two of these kits running together: G.Skill F4-3200C14Q-32GTZR which arguably have really tight timings; CL14-14-14-34.

Maybe Asus will have it all tricked out by the time Zen 5 arrives and they shrink the transistor size down to 3nm!

What blows me away, is my wife has an Asus prime x470 board + 2700x an asus pumps out bios updates for that board on a regular. the x399 was far from dead upon the x470 release. SO I cant wrap my ahead around the dead support for a enthusiast/professional grade board+chipset. To me it doesnt make me want to buy an Asus board if I was to step up to the TRX40. Seems like Asus has gotten complacent and lazy. I cant see any approach where updating the microcode an opening up Resizeable bar for x399 would be a challenging or costly task for them. If asrock and msi can do it, so can Asus. I'm glad when I build my 3rd gen ryzen systems I gave my money to Gigabyte and MSI.

Have you heard any further from Asus on resizeable bar? I emailed them as well but got no response

@KraZy_SkitZy

Actually emailed them just yesterday, as all the kinks are being ironed out of Resizable BAR/Smart Access Memory (SAM) over the last weeks.

2-3 days ago Asus admin committed themselves to Re-BAR/SAM:

https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.ph...ge34#post831178

https://www.mbreview.com/news/motherboar...asus-z370-z390/

Per a post over at the ASUS ROG Forums, ASUS is finally going to bring resizable BAR support to their Z370/Z390 product lines with an estimated timeframe of late April to early May. ASUS has been quite slow with the roll out relative to the competition leaving customers behind. It’s good to see some action from ASUS on this matter, so if you’re looking forward to this feature it may finally arrive in (relatively ) short order.

I asked for an update on my ASUS Service No=N2103010879 request.

If they are doing it for 300 level series boards one would hope that should include the X399 boards as well...at least that was my argument.

I checked the TRX40 boards for RE-BAR/SAM support for the newer ROG Zenith Extreme II vanilla/alpha motherboards and the BIOS/UEFIs are already published for download.


Cheers

Msi released their bios support for Resizeable bar. Hopefully asus can follow suit

@KraZy_SkitZy

Okay emailed them again, after getting into another online chat, with the updated info from competitors re:MSI

and asked for an estimated timeline...


Cheers

@hancor

I know this is a different topic but im looking for help to get headless boot on my 2950x with a MSI x399 carbon. Would you be able to tell me how difficult this would be? and where to start?

Thanks in advance

Have you noticed any difference with your updated microcode bios vs the stock one at all?

#40 RE: [OFFER] Asus ROG Zenith Extreme BIOS/UEFI_v2001 mod ROM by hancor 29.05.2021 04:18

@KraZy_SkitZy

Actually haven't noticed anything lately...

My father passed this last month. clocking out at the age of 92, a retired hydro-electric engineer.
Thus I've been a little busy taking care of some family stuff.
Once that settles, I try getting back in the saddle.

Cheers for now.

If your computer powers up and your lights are on...you can thank Henry.

This was Henry's last career hurrah:

The resizeable bar thing seems to be dead with Asus, just came to the conclusion they dont want my money in the future.
I did mod the bios for the Asus Strix x399.
updated cpu micro code
Intel lan firmware
Raid firmware
GOP Driver
Maybe just a coincidence , but after updating to modded bios I found boosting behavior on the 1950x has improved,

Asus released a new bios (1206) for the X399 Strix, so here's a modded variant of it, with the same things updated as my previous post.
Of course asus makes a new bios but still doesn't unlock resizeable bar....

#45 RE: [OFFER] Asus ROG Zenith Extreme BIOS/UEFI_v2001 mod ROM by hancor 26.07.2021 02:14

@KraZy_SkitZy

Yes, I see they just updated fer Windoze 11...

This week I hope to get my water loop sorted, but two deaths in the family and one industrial accident which nearly took out a brother have made for less than a stellar year!

We'll see whether I get back in the saddle....
