At my wits end plz... Bios flashing/DOCP

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

System:

CPU - Ryzen 2700x

GPU - XFX 5700

RAM - 64 GB 3200MHz Ripjaw V

MOBO - ASUS ROG Crosshairs VIII Hero

Running Windows 10 Home edition

 

had a hell of a time installing windows because I enabled DOCP prior to install.. set back to default and was able to get windows installed, updated, installed drivers and utilities from MOBO disc, installed Radeon graphics drivers, when I enabled DOCP though the computer crashes and windows prompts a recovery screen or the “ : ( sorry bro blue screen”. I read that a bios flash should be done prior to DOCP so I set about getting that squared away. I quick formatted a usb stick to Fat32, downloaded the bios update from the Asus website, clicked/complete the quick rename file program and copied the bios file to the formatted USB stick. When I get to ez flash 3 in the Bios and I select the file, it says it’s not a proper Bios file... I did some more digging and people recommended a full format to Fat32 instead of the quick format... I did that with the same result: file isn’t a proper bios file. I then tried the internet bios flash option but although windows sees my Ethernet internet just fine, the bios said I didn’t have an internet connection. So no dice on the internet bios flash either.

 

Am I missing something? I’m having a real tough computer day between this and missing out on the 3090 because they hid the add to cart button in a “see buying options” and “check availability” webpage loop. I bought this motherboard to prep for the 3090 and 5000 series CPUs and am just having a hell of a time getting it set up with my stand-in CPU/GPU. Any assistance would be appreciated more than you know. Thanks ahead of time!

is there a reason you need docp enabled?

Ryzen massively benefits from fast memory. 
 

As for OP, enable DOCP, then manually set the speed to 2933MHz. Also set the DRAM voltage to 1.35v and the SOC voltage to 1.15v.

Well... I have 3200 MHz ram and don’t want to be running at 2133. 🤷🏻‍♂️ 

 

I have 3200 GHz ram on my aux computer and a TUF mobo that cost about 1/4 of the price and DOCP worked fine. I paid quite a bit of money for performance and don’t want to leave anything on the table

Don't use the BIOS renaming tool, that's only for special use cases afaik. Just pull the .pcap file from the zip folder, put it on a USB and point to that pcap file.

Yes, I was just making the point that Ryzen even more so benefits.

You only use the renaming tool if you use BIOS Flashback functionality to restore the BIOS as a result of a bad update. Going through the BIOS itself you do not rename the file and leave it as is.

So I redownloaded the bios CAP file, didn’t use the rename tool and still get the “not a proper bios” message :( .

Make sure you extract the .ZIP file, and copy JUST the .CAP BIOS file into the USB drive.

Don't put it into a folder, etc -- just directly into the USB stick.

 

If you did not rename the BIOS file, you cannot use the BIOS Flashback feature (e.g. BIOS button on the back of the motherboard).

Instead you go into the UEFI BIOS menu, and update it through there.

Follow the steps on Page 3-27 of your motherboard user manual

I was using the rog crosshair non-WiFi bios firmware. Apparently the same bios number (2206) but it had a different file name. That also did not work... did not anticipate these kinds of problems with a bios flash from one of the largest hardware manufacturers. Such a bummer

@-rascal- , did those exact steps and still says it’s not a proper bios file. Sorry about the cell phone pics instead of screenshots but it’s easier to read and respond on my phone while I tinker. 
 

....several moments later

 

 

I was taking pics walking through it and it honestly just took! Bios is updating! Thanks everyone for your help. Crossing fingers for some DOCP
