I have this board. It sitting in the box over there. I am waiting on a CPU flying over from USA and then get me some local RAM and put it all together.
I got the only affordable i7 coming, same one all you got. Funny how that is so popular when the others are only 1 bajillion dollars eh smile.gif

I just put this here so I can come back when I am ready to put it all together.

If you want to see pictures on my board. Look for Pizzaman's MSI MOA thread. Mine is the on on the USA table that they did not use. (ps. I was there too wink.gif

Question about the 6-pin power connector labelled JPWR4 on Big Bang XPower II mobo

I want to know if the 6-pin on-board connector JPWR4 is optional ? Right now id did not already put the power on my build.

I want to know before i did what kind of wired 6 pin connector you plug in your board at JPWR4 connector.

I tried a 6 pin PCI-E and it fit in but i dont think that its the good type of connector .

I readed that it should be a 6 pin power ATX but its not clear in the MSI manual My power supply have only one 8-pin ATX connector and one 4-pin ATX connector but not a single 6 pins power ATX.

The only 6 pin connectors i have are labelled PCI-E,

My question is can i plug one of these 6 pin PCI-E in JPWR4 connector or must i found an adapter to convert molex 4 pins or ATX 4 pins to 6 Pins ATX power.

Thank's for your help

It's only needed if you're running multiple video cards since they draw power from the PCIe bus which can lead to issues with your 24-pin ATX cable.

Thank's that doesnt really help me , i know thats It's only needed if i'm running multiple video cards. Its my case and i want to know what kind of cable i can plug in this connector .

My question is can i plug one of the 6-pin PCI-E cables from my PSU in the JPWR4 connector (6 pins ATX) on the Big Bang XPower II mobo or must i found an adapter to convert to 6 Pins ATX power.

Thank's

Either one will work although I wouldn't use an adapter unless you didn't have any PCIe cables left.

Those are the power saving features in Bios (which you can disable if you want), and its normal so don't worry about it.
Once your CPU is tasked with any sort of load, it will go up to those overclocked speeds and come back down when the work is done. Produces less heat thumb.gif

PCI-E 6pin would do. You can use converters, dont' see anything bad in it, if you have a good cable and a quality PSU. Also you don't really need to plug it in unless you plan to run 4 cards or have a shady multi-rail PSU.

I'm confused.. in the manual about this mobo there is a table on page 1-21, it clearly shows that if you want to run 2 GPUs in SLI you should use PCI-E slot 1 and 5, but if you scroll down and read about SLI they say: "Install two NVIDIA graphics cards in the PCI_E1 and the PCI_E3 slots."
What the..? Can someone please help me in this matter.
Which slots do you guys use?
