Preventing Ryzen Burnout: Motherboard Makers Issue New Firmware
Motherboard makers have been quick to respond with firmware updates, and AMD has released a series of worrying public statements about the “Ryzen burnout” issue. Today we have seen all major AM5 motherboard partners release or announce mitigations for motherboard BIOS updates. As such, we have statements from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, Biostar, and others, and we’ll see what each vendor has to say about the update. These updates are described in alphabetical order.
Asus AM5 Update
Asus has chosen to provide community updates Via TwitterSenior Technical Marketing Manager Juan Jose Guerrero reminded us that the Ryzen 7000X3D processor does not allow tuning of CPU ratio or core voltage, but does support PBO2 and EXPO. will give you It is these technologies that increase the SoC voltage so that the processor can stably cope with the demanding demands.
In a nutshell, Asus’ answer is to limit the maximum available SoC voltage to 1.3V. In a statement released today, an Asus executive said users should be able to find a new “safe” BIOS with a 1.3V limit “within the next 24 hours.”
Biostar AM5 Update
Biostar is one of AMD’s smaller partners. 3 motherboard updates Ready for X670E Valkyrie, Racing B650EGTQ, B650M-Silver. That’s the company’s entire existing lineup, but there are three other of his AM5 boards in the pipeline.
A news blog post details how Biostar created a BIOS update that “limits DC voltage to CPU Vcore voltage, CPU SOC voltage, and CPU MISC voltage.” The intention is to make voltage limit changes that “prevent overvoltage and reduce the risk of damage to the 7000X3D series CPUs,” Biostar said. Interestingly, the new BIOS file we checked (for Valkyrie he’s X67AE413.BST) was almost two weeks old.

Gigabyte AM5 Update
In today’s news blog post, gigabyte says They announced that they are working closely with AMD to “release a new beta BIOS for recent concerns that Ryzen™ 7000X3D series CPUs may damage the motherboard”. Like other motherboard makers, Gigabyte says they have implemented more restricted SoC voltage settings for him to reduce the risk of damage. However, we can assure you that users will still enjoy the “top performance of the Ryzen 7000 X3D CPUs”.
Users may find beta BIOS downloads for 23 of Gigabyte’s AM5 series motherboards at: Available straight away.
MSI AM5 Update
MSI HQ Technical Marketing chose to announce the BIOS changes to the community via redditMSI said in the post that users of MSI motherboards have not experienced issues with SoC voltages rising to 1.5V. However, for absolute safety, MSI followed his AMD’s latest guidance and “disabled the overvoltage feature on the 7000X3D core.”
If you own an MSI AM5 motherboard, the manufacturer continues to ask you to “be careful with your CPU voltage usage”. MSI assures readers of the reddit community that once AMD releases a solution to the current issue, it will again “updating” the BIOS file.
In summary, AM5 platform users should be aware of their voltages for now, apply these updates, and wait for further developments.
