I also have the following question,

somewhere here someone mentioned that , you have to get the cpu to at least 4,6 gig for the 2 780's to work properly.

I have enough cooling trust me. does someone have some quick bios settings for me, or is there a page you can paste for me with this settings

That's not entirely true. Depends on game/app/resolution/scaling.
Benefits are more apparent in benchmarks.

Hi guys, I am in computer hell at the moment. Last week my rig had an MSI BBXP2 mobo and a 3930k CPU. On Friday I bought a 4960X CPU. On Tuesday I took the 3930K out and in the process I dropped it damaging 4 of the socket pins. I wasn't sure it was badly damaged so I put the 4960X in but it came up with FF on the debug LED and nothing on the monitor. This week I have repaired the pins as best I could, put the 4960X in but when I power it up the mobo lights up but still FF on the LED.
Does anybody ACTUALLY know what FF stands for?
Is my mobo still screwed or is it the CPU?
I can take the mobo to PC World who do flat fee repairs for £50 but I have no way to know for sure what is wrong.
I still have the 3930K but don't want to risk destroying it.
I have no way to test the 4960X
Thanks to anyone who can help.

If the pins are not broken and not touching each other, then there is a good chance it will still work with the 3930K.

There is also a good chance your board needs a Bios update to identify IB-E CPUs like the 4960X.

Just pop your 3930K back in there and update the Bios to the latest version (2.7) and then install your 4960X.
I've had worse cases than yours (once, a couple of bent pins made contact with each other and the board made a big pop sound upon receiving power, CPU & mobo still work after I realigned the pins).

Thanks for the reply Exxon. The thing is that the 3930K is on Ebay ending tomorrow and I am terrified that I may wreck it.

Can you post a good pic of the mobo's CPU socket ?

Yes. These are it before the repair. I was stunned that it was damaged by the CPU which only fell about 0.5 inches and only touched the pins with the plastic corner. I will try to post a pic of the repaired (?) socket shortly.
It's annoying that my previous (ROG) mobo had a long list of LED codes in the manual but the MSI manual isn't as well written. I will try putting the 3930K in tomorrow when I feel less fragile mad.gif
