I have tried to search for an answer from several sources, including Gigabyte, but I am still at loss.
Which BIOS (or AGESA version) I should use for Pinnacle Ridge on B450?
Is it and always will be AGESA 184.108.40.206 for PinnaclePI?
What improvements do the newer ComboAM4 BIOSes carry for Pinnacle Ridge? Or do they make things more complicated?
My issue is, that I cannot get the memory to work above JEDEC standard 2133 MHz. XMP fails to boot and also more moderate manual settings fail.
For the motherboard the memory (CMK16GX4M2B3200C16) is on QVL list for Matisse (mb_memory_b450-aorus-pro_matisse_190828.pdf) and even for Summit Ridge and Picasso. The QVL for Pinnacle Ridge is dated 2018/07/09, which is five months prior to Gigabyte even releasing F4 BIOS with 220.127.116.11 for this board. They have not updated the list, but as 18.104.22.168 brought with it many improvements, one could assume many more modules would also work.
Am I wrong, if I assume, that the newer BIOSes F41 (AGESA ComboAM4 22.214.171.124 AB) or F42 (AGESA ComboAM4 126.96.36.199 ABB) might work better with my memory?
Any comments are highly appreciated.
