What BIOS do I need for Aorus Pro x570??

MS-DOS

I have this one:

My BIOS version is really old, I want to update it but on the website I see there is 2 sections, Rev 1.0 and Rev 1.1/1.2:

 

https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/X570-AORUS-PRO-rev-10/support#support-dl-bios

 

https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/X570-AORUS-PRO-rev-11-12/support#support-dl-bios

 

How do I know which one do I need? Or it's the same files?

Then do I just download the latest version?

 

Edit: They are the same file, they have same checksums, however on the website it says:

 

Checksum : 9491

 

What is this 9491 from? it doesn't match any of the checksums I've gotten:

 

CRC32: D7D52A2D
CRC64: CDEB85EDBBB71A55
SHA256: E65610347FB9FD675301F2B8C756AA938125010EC652755D36604DAB4C5E6F6A
SHA1: 0440A4007979DEF135E66F79DFC19F5107F58D2F
BLAKE2sp: 2756C313421EF14991F46D50599E22166D5007C9425D66DBA8E80BD15B577473

It's not the same file. The way I tell is to look just to the left of the memory slots, if there's 2 capacitors there it's the Rev. 1.0 board, and if there's no capacitors it's the Rev1.1/1.2 board. Other option is to just look at the bottom left corner of the board, it should print the revision right there. 

 

Hope you get the Rev 1.1/1.2 version, the Rev 1.0 boards weren't made for very long and therefore got very little BIOS optimization, leading to newer BIOS revisions actually being worse than earlier ones.

Why? What is that BIOS not doing that you want it to. BIOS revisions follow the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" rule very tightly, since generally if you don't need to update the BIOS a newer one will make those worse, not better.

A problem with the CPU:

 

The fix requested in there doesn't work. Switching between 2 energy profiles fixes it but this is annoying since everytime I boot I have to double check if the CPU speed works.

Well I got no real BIOS issue on my V1.0 for 2 years, updating at each new version

also updating is needed for 5000 CPU, and for ReBAR

I stand corrected. With how different the Rev. 1.0 and Rev. 1.2 boards are memory wise, they shouldn't be the same BIOS, but Gigabyte.

Gigabyte's in BIOS checksum validator. It'll show up when you try to do a BIOS update, it'll perform a checksum, give that number, then ask if you want to proceed.

Im going to flash to latest version and see if the CPU clock issue is solved. Hope I don't lose my fan speed profiles and nothing blows up.

If you update your BIOS its likely going to be reset to factory defaults. In fact if you're having issues, resetting your board to factory defaults would be something you do before doing whole BIOS update.

The easiest to find out with your motherboard is Rev 1.0 or 1.1/1.2 ... or Rev *whatever*

Is to open up your PC and ACTAULLY, PHYSICALLY LOOK at your motherboard.

Luckily I think this BIOS has a way to save presets and load them again.
