Tested 3202 and found performance to have dropped in benchmarks and games. Have not gained any extra headroom where I can run 3866 mem and 1933 without having to run SOC voltage a bit higher.

In Cinebench I am still getting ~5950-6000 like I was before, so no big change. I left PBO and all of that stuff on Auto.

Upgraded to 3102 on my C8H non-WiFi. So far so good, I had to go back in and enable DOCP for the RAM speeds, but everything seems to be working well so far. No sign of Curve Optimizer in the BIOS yet, though.
You're looking in pbo under advanced/cbs...?

I thought I was, yeah...not seeing it, but I'll have to poke around some more.

EDIT: Not seeing anything in there, or anywhere else, related to Curve Optimizer.

EDIT2: Apparently it's under AMD Overlocking, then in the PBO menu you have to set to Advanced for it to show up.

I turned back on Max Offset to +200 Mhz and Curve Optimizer for all cores to -15, and yet again I get lower Cinebench marks, around 5600 versus 6000 before. Not sure what is going on or what I need to change.

Weird thing is the cores are all hitting around 4.65 GHz versus 4.5 or so without Curve Optimizer, and temps are about the same, but worse score.

EDIT: Turning everything back to Auto only gets me ~5700 now...not a clue why.

I've been running on 2816 since late nov. and it's rock solid. I think I'll stay on this one for now. Don't fix what isn't broken, right? :)

Off Topic: I tried a 3070 during the holidays, to see how much difference it would be from a 2070 Super. I get around 15-20 FPS more, so not bad but hardly a gamechanger on my system. Odd thing is though, when I tested my VR (Rift S) Sound crackling and after a bit totally vanished. Re-connecting the USB3 helped, but not for long. Reinstall of drivers and Oculus home software tried, and no changes. When setting up the headest, it recognices the USB3 port but the DP was green for a few seconds then turned red. Making the setup process impossible. Looked around on the web, and found out that a PCI-E mode change to Gen3 fixed the problem.

Not sure where the fault lies here, but I am thinking it's with the RIFT S firmware or maybe the software. As of now, it's not important that I fix this, as the 3070 was a short loan to test things. I work at a computer store, so I had easy access. Performance wise, I saw no difference between Gen3 and Gen4 mode. Which makes sense as the testers around the web has been reporting. In most cases. I don't think the fault is in the MB BIOS, wouldn't make sense as the 2070S works like a dream, and the PCI-E Mode is set to AUTO.

So turning off all of the PBO stuff only let me max out at 4.8 Ghz, so I turned it all back on including all-core Curve Optimizer at -15, and now I am getting 6100 or so in CB R20. No fucking clue, it seems completely random as to what happens between BIOS changes.

1usmus tweeted that the 1.2.0.0 Asus BIOS's are beta because the VRMs aren't calibrated yet, so you might find weird temps on them. Then again the previous releases are beta for months now, so who knows.
