I actually bothered him with this question couple days ago so I'll just go ahead and save everyone's time and effort.

The black (with yellow accent) covers are attached with a double-sided tape. You have to carefully lift it but it should come out rather easy. After that, you will remain with the awesome grey heatsinks. biggrin.gif

When you update your BIOS the BIOS setting will set to default.
Hi Cheaptrick, after the flash, I couldn't even get into the bios, just lights and fans come on for half second, then off, repeated forever. When I switched to bios 2 booted up fine, then I set the SATA and boot priority, so no problems and I actually got my RAID1 set up!. thumb.gif However, haven't fixed bios 1 yet.

=========================================================================
Here is what I heard from MSIAlex:

As for flash procedure, you should boot using #2 bios, and in ClickBIOS II screen, switch over to BIOS #1 and then flash. That's how you reflash.

I'll try this tonight hopefully.

I unplugged cord from PSU, made sure that all power was purged, reset the CMOS, and all was well after. You can give that a try if you haven't already.

The key is to make sure that ALL POWER IS PURGED before you reset the CMOS. that means the on board power switch is not lit up.

If Alex's suggestion doesn't work, I will try yours. Thanks!

Sounds like your moherboard just has a bad BIOS. Simple fix for MSI.

No warranty as it was a review sample. I was told this after I purchased it from someone and already had it installed in my case. When the primary bios went dead, I contacted MSI via phone and explained the situation because the serial number would not come up in their data base. After I contacted the seller is when he informed me it was a review sample. I then asked him to help me by talking to the MSI rep he had recieved the board from and I would pay to get it repaired. He refused stating he "didn't want to get in the middle of it and didn't want to get the rep in trouble" rolleyes.gif

I told him that would not happen, just explain the problem and what they quote you in repairs fees I will cover it. Not like he's losing any money on this. He still refused and MSI also refuses the repair the board stating again the board is not under warranty. He we go in this endless cycle that I ask for them to fix it and they keep refusing. The reason?: "The board is not under warranty". What kind of BS is that? So now I have a useless paperweight. I can understand if I deliberately killed the board by voltmodding it or running it under LN2, but I did no such thing aside from buying it.

Other companies are willing to do repairs if an item is out of warranty and charge a repair fee, MSI will not. So because of this issue I will not buy another review sample from anyone and 2nd, will not purchase anything with an MSI label on it. I'll chart this down on my list of brands I avoid at all costs.

Press the GO2BIOS button on your mobo & try running BIOS 1. Set the SATA configuration then the boot priority device. What I've noticed on this motherboard is that sometimes it doesn't recognized the Intel RAID configuration rightaway when you set the SATA configuration to RAID. Sometimes I have to click the default BIOS setting (or even login to Windows & set the SATA configuration & boot priority there on the CLICKBIOSII program) & do a reboot & then set again the SATA configuration to RAID before it can recognized the Intel RAID option on boot priority. If you do this & still have some problems in rebooting your PC then your BIOS is probably corrupted.

I don't suggest for you to do a manual BIOS flashing next time you update your BIOS hence this motherboard has a Live Update utility program that you can use to scan & totally install the motherboard utilities, drivers & the BIOS itself. Updating via the Live Update utility is less pain. I've actually updated the drivers manually on this motherboard several days ago using the drivers I've found at http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=18441627. Though I managed to update some of the drivers, I have hard time updating the Intel USB driver that I've decided to uninstall the old Intel USB driver host controller ( Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller) via device manager but still unable to install the new USB driver. Luckily, by checking on the install CD I managed to find the older USB driver.

It's less pain to just scan for new updates & install it via the Live Update Utility even if it's not really the newest updates.

I used a torch style lighter and was very careful. A blow dryer or heat gun will work as well. It helps a lot to heat up the plates a little. The one on the SB came off with ease. The others took a little love. I did however scratch one on the heatsinks with my screwdriver. Stupid me. If I ever have to do it again, I would use something plastic to pry them off.
