Good day everyone!

I am one proud owner of this sexy board myself. biggrin.gif

I have a question about the CPU Phase LEDs though...when inside Windows, the LEDs keep on flickering, whether in idle or load. However, I've seen a few videos of this board and all CPU Phase LEDs on the videos were lit permanently -- no flickering/blinking whatsoever.

How about on your board guys? Care to share? I'm worried that my board may have some sort of defect. frown.gif

Not sure what causes them to flicker but the lights can be turned off in the BIOS if you want them off. I have had my MB for a few days now and I have notice the lights flicker a little every now and then. I don't think it is a problem.

Thanks for the quick reply. smile.gif Mine is constantly flickering. :s I figured it has something to do with power delivery (as it also says in the manual). Haven't encountered any problems so far though...I'll wait and see. XD

I just flashed the latest BIOS too but the flickering is still there BTW. Oh well~


Anyways, beside my current "issue" (or should I say feature?), I'm lovin' this board! biggrin.gif

I'd suggest the MSI HQ USB Flashing Tool: http://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=116721.0

Just plugin in your key, use the "Fix my USB key" option, clean the drive and then prepare the USB by using the downloaded BIOS for your MPower. It's a lot safer than MSI Update/M-Flash. Follow the instructions carefully, should be a walk in the park. smile.gif

I normally use the MSI HQ USB flashing Tool but it didn't play right with my Agility 3 SSD . I ended up putting the new bios on the SSD and using the M-Flash method and everything worked out fine.

Already dialed in a quick OC of 4.8GHZ. smile.gif

Under the eco settings in the bios theres a option called cpu phase control, auto will have them switching depending on load (lights appear to flicker) disabled leaves them all on so all the lights will stay on.

On another note I just flashed the bios under windows using the application in the zip, no issues here.

Edit: Also does anyone who has those AVEXIR sticks no if you can disable the leds in them via software(not sure if its even possible)? It seems IB doesnt care for my samsung wonder ram...

I do not believe there is any way to disable to lighting, I have looked at them for a while and can't see anything. I personally like the lights though so it doesn't bother me, I like my ricer computer.

On this board are the only options for voltage control manual(no voltage drop when idle) and auto with vdroop offset? This is my first MSI board, the UEFI is way different from what Im used to.
