Got a MSI mpower z77 big bang today just by chance. I put together and entire build around an ASUS board and the board was giving me issues. The net kept dropping in and out no matter what I did. Multiple driver changes, and reinstalls of windows and no luck. Last open box item I buy. Luckily it was a quick drive and an instant exchange. However, every ASUS mobo they had 15+ but all open box returns. The tech even said they have gotten 80% of their ASUS boards back. He recommended this MSI board to me, and it was brand new, and 40 less than my last board so I took it on a whim.

I am having a few issues. The BIOS is flickering and all glitchy sometimes. I try to go into it and its flickering all over itself and impossible to navigate. If i exit BIOS it boots into windows just fine. I am also not getting my CPU temps displayed on the LED, instead it sometimes shows A2 and A0 which I cant find in the manual to figure out whats wrong. Unfortunately, after all my issues today I decided to save this for tomorrow, but wanted to run it past all of you for your insight. I believe the BIOS version I am running is 17.2 or 17.3. 17.4 is the newest correct? And the only safe way to flash to BIOS is though a USB stick correct? The Live Update is dangerous from what I have heard? I should add, the BIOS does boot up correctly 50% of the time and work perfectly.

I have switched from BIOS a to BIOS b and both do the same flickering, and both give me the same LED codes rather than showing my CPU temp, but my rig is running fine.

I did notice my CORSAIR Dominator gt ddr3 2000mhs ram was only running at 1066. I tried to manually change it to 2000 and got a BSOD on bootup. Set it back to 1600 and its booting fine however Id like to get AT LEAST the stock speed out of it.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks all.

Got it. That will cure the BSODs that I was getting? If so, that takes care of one issue. Now for the rest of them haha. Thanks!
post #606 of 3633
yes that will take care of the bsod..the flickering could be stabilty..i would update your bios with a flash drive..but the ram may have been the problem..do you have it installed in dimm slot 1 and 3 or 2 and 4

I put them in exactly as the manual said to for dual channel ram. I believe the slot numbers are 2 and 4. If you were looking at the motherboard with the ram in the top right as if it was mounted in a case it would be as follows. empty, ram, empty, ram. The ram was perfectly OK the last month in my AMD rig, dont know why I would have an issue now with the ram just because its in a new platform.
post #608 of 3633
your ram is installed correctly...update your bios to the latest 17.4 then see what happens..but dominator ram is def compatable as i have the platnum

Will update the BIOS tomorrow. When I do that, does it update both A and B or does it only update whichever I have the switch set to? And updating via a USB drive is the only way to go correct? Thanks again! BTW, this is my first dive into really tuning, what does XMP do? I have overclocked my GPU before, but I plan on going on water and overclocking my 3750k as well as my ram too. Im hoping to get one step up over 2000 on my ram, and a nice daily 4.3-4.5ghz on my CPU.

xmp is extreme memory profile.intel supports 1333 and 1600 ram.xmp overclocks the ram to its rateing and for an easy oc.just hit the oc genie button and push your multiplier to 44.you can do it in click bios in your os.you should be fine with out addind volts..and the bios dont matter what side its on..its for overclock profiles or for emergencies situations.
