I recently updated my ASUS Prime B350-Plus' BIOS from version 0808 (2017/09/15) to 3803 (2018/01/26).


I didn't expect the update to wipe all settings, but that is what just happened. Countless hours of RAM OC burned for nothing.

But that isn't the worst part. I intend to run my Ryzen 5 1600 at 3,85GHz, but after just one minute into Windows, Task-Manager and CPU-Z state, that my CPU is downclocked to 1,33GHz. Whatever causes this also disables cores at will. As I am writing this post, only 2 of the 6 cores are marked to be active. I know this form of downclocking exists to help my CPU survive longer, but even under heavy load it just bounces back up to max. 1,8GHz and ingame-performance is very poor. I downgraded myself from 50-80FPS in some games to like 20FPS.



What can I do, as the Flash Utility does not allow downgrades? I am very unsure what to do next.




Thanks, Jan.
