    IMO this is yet another reason to buy from a vendor like System76 who has open source firmware on the mobo's embedded controller.

Would've bought another board if I realized this before buying. I even wrote ITE a support ticket, but they said it's a specific design for a customer and they can't give out the datasheet - and Gigabyte told me they don't give the datasheet out to end users. Grmpf!

      Edit:
      there is even this discouraging bug report: https://github.com/lm-sensors/lm-sensors/issues/154
      which is a lie considering hwinfo AND aida64 has support for it

        They reverse engineer it and get behind the scenes leaks from motherboard engineers. Which is why I think we should just use reverse engineered drivers in Linux.

        Linux is never going to get official spec sheets for this stuff.

        I don't really understand the NDA junk the chip vendors do. It isn't as if they can hide the machine code that operates the chip so who are they kidding? I believe the general excuse is they don't want to enable cheap replacement chips from other vendors (cough, China, hah).

          So, long story short, my PC died. Woke up and it acted like it wouldn't resume from a blanked monitor but I also wasn't able to Ctl+Alt+F# into another terminal either and had to hard reboot. According to the POST lights and testing with 3 processors, multiple SATA cables, a Linux and Windows boot drive, and 2 GPUs I thought it was either the motherboard or PSU so I ordered both. Hooked up a minimal setup and got the same POST lights on the new MB and PSU, only adding a 4th CPU to the testing since the motherboard came with a CPU in the slot. I guess I have bad ram? I just can't imagine that all six of my ram sticks died...
          Since my stimulus check came in I have to ask if an X570 is worth it over a B550 just for PCIE gen 4. I've got the gist of a Ryzen 5 4650 Pro build dialed in and I'm wondering if the extra $50 would be worth it because ECC is damn expensive and $500 out of my ~$700 budget is the CPU and ram, but a Pro APU with ECC memory in a custom build, yes please. I'm typing this from a keyboard plugged into my Android TV where the arrow keys work as a mouse cursor and enter acts as primary click. I don't know how to line break enter yet.
          This seemed like a decent place to ask since it's a motherboard article. Any idea WTF is up with my PC? The only thing I don't have extra to test is sticks of ram. Just curious at this point. I really wanted an extra year before upgrading...dammit...forced upgrades fscking suck. And, yes, I did the one stick of ram at a time thing. Spent the greater part of yesterday doing as many HW combinations as possible. And I don't have any actual Gen 4 hardware aside from the APU I plan on getting.
          Line Break Paragraphs, LOL
          Dude...., 4650G has only PCIE 3.0 support. If you don't plan to upgrade the CPU or not planning to overclock, you may even go lower like A520.
          I have 4650G with ASRock A520M Pro4 and 32GB 3600MT/s CL16 RAM. Works just fine with XMP and all, including the k10temp. Where I live, CPU+MB was 260 Euro.

            It ended up running me around 300 Euro for a 4650g and a Gigabyte DS3H B550M paired with 32gb 3600 CL18. Just waiting for the processor to arrive and I'll be back in business.
