MSI Z77 Mpower owners club / All things MPower - Page 353

post #3521 of 3631
I have another quick SLI - MPower related question. I know hooking up a 2-way SLI limits me to 2-displays connected to the bridged cards. I have a 3 monitor setup now connected to my 1 GPU (only game on 1 though), can I connect my 3rd monitor to the integrated graphics on the MPower/CPU? I don't plant to game on it, but I like having 3 displays active since I do a lot of CAD type work as well.

Thanks for everyone's help! I also got my hands on an extra 16GB of DDR3 ram (2x8) to add to my existing 8GB (2x4). With 2 chips, the manual says to use DIMM 2 and 4. Should I just put my new chips in Dimm 1 and 3 or should I reorder them 1 and 2, then 3 and 4 (4GB and 8GB chips respectively).

Thanks!

Decided to try and paint my motherboard without the use of spray paint, I'd rate it a 6/10. Good if you don't get to close biggrin.gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





Let me know what you think thumb.gif

Put the 8GB sticks in slots 2 and 4 and the 4GB sticks in slots 1 and 3. Always put the larger sticks in the primary slots listed for the board. thumb.gif

Honestly i wouldnt mix rams with diff brands..sizes ir timings...
Just use the 2*8gb and keep the old ones as backup
post #3528 of 3631
The timings are the same because I'm using the same type of RAM (both Trident X PC2400 with Timing 10-12-12-31 and CAS 10). I put the big chips in 2/4 as suggested above and the 4GB chips in 1/3 and it booted up just fine. Running it at 1200MHz (DDR 2400) with XMP and no issues. I don't OC my RAM because 1200MHz is more than sufficient. Thanks!

I find that a matte finish spray paint looks better on parts. I like the green theme you got going there. thumb.gif

hey, my friends computer has this motherboard and he is having a problem with it.  for some reason it is always running at max speed. the temps average around 40 degrees, however it is really warm.  what might be the reason it is always running at max?  There has been no overclocking or any mods.

 

Any help?

 

Thanks
