[OFFICIAL] MSI Big Bang XPower II owners club & overclocking thread - Page 67

post #661 of 947
Fixed the issue above, but now I have a new one:

If I change ram or anything or even take out and put back the same stick of ram or GPU -> my whole OC profile goes unstable and will freeze in Prime within 15 seconds. However, if I reset to default, run Prime and then reset again and put back all of the same OCs then I can run Prime for hours no problem.

Bios thing?

Thanks for your reply.

Have you tried to overclock it to 4,5 and above??? What's the voltage needed???

I am thinking of buying this mobo (I like xl-atx form). Will it switch on when I set up my 4930k with an old bios?? Is there a way (like asus flashback) to update without the need of a Sandy bridge-e??

Have not tried to OC it yet, and not sure I will. It is going to be a business machine (day trading) and I'm building a work horse. Now the other BBXPII board that I have with my 3930k well that will be a different story. I plan to OC the heck out of it once finish my cube build.

The first time you booted with 4930k, the board had a recent bios or old???

it had whatever was loaded from the factory. I bought the MOBO at the same time as the 4930k, which was only about 6 weeks ago. But it wouldn't be a bad idea to store the current MOBO drivers on a stick drive just in case.

Hello again.

Can anyone explain the bios update procedure in the big bang xpower II??

Tomorrow I am receiving the motherboard, and it's possible that I have to update the bios to allow using a 4930k (I borrowed a 3820 to do it). So, after reading the PDF manual, I am not sure what to do to update the bios and which procedure I must follow.

I started downloading the latest 2.5 version from MSI support page, unzipped it and inside there is an exe that I cannot unzip. I tried to execute it in a pendrive, but it says that is not possible with my present motherboard (I still have the Asus RIVE installed, until the MSI arrives).

I want to flash correctly to avoid problems. I was reading the MSI forum and some people found trouble to update to recent releases, specially regarding ME update...

Please help..

I answer myself...

The mobo came with 2.4 bios, so did not need to update in regards to ivy-e. But I updated to 2.5, (using first mflash and later a special utility called msi hq from Svet) to have the latest bios installed, and had problems with digital audio out. It did not work neither in coaxial nor in optical. So I went back to 2.4 and all working like a charm..

I also managed to overclock in offset, reaching 4,2, not bad at all. For more oc, I need to use fixed voltage..

Hi all,

I have a problem... I have 3 raid arrays as of the moment. I have 2 ssd raid arrays and 1 3tb raid w/ ssd caching... I am adding another raid array w/ ssd caching. all raid 0. but it seems that when I put the drive ( sata cables and power ) the bios can't seem to find the raids on the intel.

Basically, all drives mounted on intel can't be boot drives. I tried disabling the as media controller and it boots.. as soon as I enable the asmedia it basically takes over my boot options and not showing my intel drives... I already tried setting up the raid to boot by disabling the as media so I only have the intel choices and save and it boots.. so I figured just enable the asmedia w/o touching the boot options and it does not boot... ( basically choses one of the asmedia drive. )

Please don't tell me about the raid 0 or any SSD related discussion that its not practical / no performance gain / etc. I have small SSDs disk and I do SSD caching to speed up load times FYI.

SSD caching via primo cache ( not related as it does not boot )

Thanks...
