MSI launched a new version of the BIOS to limit the voltage of the Ryzen 7000X3D series processors
According to previous reports, a few users experienced their Ryzen 7 7800X3D or Ryzen 9 7950X3D processors suddenly burning out, with visible damage on both the processor’s contact points and the motherboard socket, raising suspicions that voltage adjustments could be the culprit. To prevent processor damage due to voltage issues, MSI today released new BIOS versions for several motherboards, limiting CPU voltage and disabling the CPU core voltage adjustment option in the MSI Center software.
MSI has currently released new BIOS versions for 14 motherboards, covering a range of chipsets from A620 to X670E. When the new BIOS detects a Ryzen 7000X3D series processor, it only supports negative offset voltage settings, also allowing only for a reduction in CPU voltage. The specific motherboard models and BIOS versions are as follows, with the PRO X670-P WIFI and MAG B650M MORTAR WIFI boards’ new BIOS versions still in the process of being updated, expected to be released shortly. For users seeking to improve the performance-per-watt ratio of the Ryzen 7000X3D series processors, MSI offers the Enhanced Mode Boost option, which optimizes the PBO strategy, allowing for better energy efficiency.
