    4F is indeed a faulty bios chip.

    I recently also had this issue and after much searching i came across a reddit post about the issue. I happened to have another of the same motherboard and replacing the BIOS A chip (it is just a slot in chip not soldered) it instantly fixed the issue.

    You can get another bios chip from ASrock or order them from ebay.

    EDIT:

    After considering this post, another thought came up which is that the dual BIOS chips on the asrock boards are to prevent bricking the board due to a flash failure. Meaning that the second BIOS B chip is probably fine and replacing the BIOS A chip with the BIOS B chip (switching them around) will probably be a temporary solution, but you would still be wise to order another bios chip and replace the faulty one and then reflash it again when it arrives.
