I imagine the new boards are just Mpower's with different heat sinks.

The UEFI isn't as good as the ASrock's one, but its a price worth it to pay for such a premium board!

The Mpower BIOS is rather straight forward and well laid out. The only thing that is inconvenient is the CPU feature set. I'm not sure how you found it confusing or unoptimal

I don't play with memory timing at all, but can't you "loosen" it? I probably have no idea what I'm talking about :-(

My CPU phase LEDs not blinking at all (LED7 and LED8). I'm worried. Sometimes I got DrMOS alarm red led (not pulse, but blinking all time). It happens, when I manually change CPU voltage or Ratio in UEFI and starts blinking with first CPU stress action.
Why my CPU phase LED7 and LED8 are not blinking?

Could you help me, please?

Yes, restoring BIOS to default settings helps.
I'm not a noob in OC. This is first time when I have problem with overclocking from many years.
I restored BIOS, checked everything. The CPU phase LEDs staying ON when I turn off the phase control in EUFI. When the option is enabled, LEDs are blinking when CPU got busy. I know how it works.
Problem is, no matter of enabled/disabled cpu phase option, 7th and 8th LED is not working. Not blinking at all.

Does the Mpower board allow for Crossfire with the top and bottom PCI-E slot or is the bottom only wired for 4x? I know if you populated all three slots it will be 4x, but is it 4x even if you only populate it and the top 16x slot?

I believe the 3rd slot will be 4x, but that's only with Ivy. I don't think you can even use it with sandy. Could be wrong though rolleyes.gif

 More so than just the CPU your using.. the 2nd slot is only hardwired for 8x and the 3rd for 4x .. no matter what the config, you cannot exceed what is hardwired on the board..

 

slot 1 = 16x

slot 2 = 8x

slot 3 = 4x

 

... populating slots 1 & 2 cuts bandwidth on slot 1 to 8x.. effectively running slots 1 & 2 @ 8x8x
