MSI Z77 Mpower owners club / All things MPower - Page 48

post #471 of 3633
Did the install and the bank of pins with front panel power, reset, etc doesn't seem to be working. Hate my life sometimes.

edit Glad I got it through Amazon. Going to swap out my 775 board and make sure multiple wires aren't shorted out. Swapped reset and power cables to make sure it wasn't a short in either or a problem with physical buttons. Pretty sure it isn't PEBKAC in plugin placement. Right to left top row- 2 pins no clue, blank, 2 pins power, 2 pins power led. Not looking forward to pulling board. Mobo installation is PITA in a Storm Scout.

TRIM in RAID for starters (only applies to Z77). Slightly better I/O performance.

I plugged the display port in the 2nd one and changed the display setting to PEG but still nothing from slot 1. I'm still new to this click bios coming from a 790i ultra board, I was wondering if there was some setting that was preventing the card in first pcie-16x slot from working.

Sounds like you're trying to go too fast. You need to install windows with just one card, then install the motherboard drivers (the newest ones, not the garbage that came with the discs), then install the Nvidia driver. Then, when one card is working perfectly, install the second card. So, uninstall both cards, and Nvidia drivers. Then, uninstall the device in control panel, then install the "broken" card, wait for windows to find it again, then install nvidia drivers, then put back in the second card.

This **** used to happen all the time when I had SLI. This was always the solution.

not in my case, it didn't work!

I just bought this card yesterday, installed my 7970 on it and it showed that it was running on PCI-E 8x v1.1! How do I get it to run at PCI-E 16x 3.0? I have an Ivy Bridge 3570k and I'm running my 7970 in the middle PCI-E slot.

Edit: I also have no control of my CPU fan in the BIOS, how do I control it? The only way I could lower the rpm is with speedfan D: MSI keeps ramping everything up to full speed

Re CPU fan, you can find speed settings under Hardware Monitor. I think it's in Settings > Advanced. Enable Smart Fan Target and set a minimum speed. I have it set to 40 °C and 50%.

EDIT: I should mention that changing these values wouldn't let my computer boot into Windows when I was running BIOS version 17.1. Flashing to 17.3 or 17.4 should fix this if you happen to run into the same problem.

You probably have to use the first slot, not the second, or you will probably trip the lane switch.

Ok I found a way with the fans, but I still think im gonna get a fan controller, the software fan controller on the board is kinda crappy. As for the 7970 I'll just have to put on top frown.gif
Quite happy with this board overall biggrin.gif What does the blue leds on the top right of the board mean? Can I switch it off?

Yes, you can. You can do that in the BIOS. Consult the user manual, everything is explained in there. If I recall correctly the blue LEDs indicate the number of power phases in use. Correct me if I am wrong...
