The issue is in the IMC, not in the BIOS. All BIOS updates do is improve compatibility and such.

2X4GB

chances are in your favor provided that they are quality sticks. To squeeze the most, I would still recommend fine-tuning the timings manually using the ryzen dram calculator though.

XMP will only (try) to take the speed to 2666 MHz then, if you want to go higher, it will depend on your luck, how good your motherboard is at adjusting the timings, and whether you can make good calls on memory timing/subtimings

Yea i know. I just want to know if it's even worth spending time to try hitting 3200mhz or even buying 3200mhz ram for first gen ryzen
