I totally missed the part where you used OC Genie - I think any suggestions I make will require /were based on a manual OC
I totally missed that sorry.
Also do you have the code from the BSOD? Are you comfortable and familiar with manual OC? Did you happen to set things manually and use the OC Genie? That will throw a wrench in there sometimes...

2nd - could you list all the other parts of your build and on the major ones the model numbers? I will help you out, and you can add me to a IM service if you use one and I will try and help get you sorted out

I had to run to town today on a whim so brought my board down with me and exchanged it. Have a brand new board in the car for tomorrow morning. Will throw it back in and update the BIOS to 17.4 and see where it goes. Im hoping my LED readout works correctly and shows the temp, since that and the flickering BIOS were my only two issues.

One thing I noticed is that the board does not support 2000mhz, or at least isnt listed. It skips from 1866 to 2133 without showing 2000 as compatible. The BIOS lets me set to 2000 but then it BSODs, however I set to 2133 and has no issues at all. Here's my build:

-MSI Mpower z77
-Intel 3570k
-Corsair Dominator GT ddr3 2000mhz 2x4gb kit
-EVGA gtx 560 ti 2gb
-Intel Cherryville 240gb SSD
-SeaSonic 750w full modular GOLD rated cpu
-LG Blue Life 10x Blueray cdr/dvdr drive
-NZXT Switch 810

Hopefully have it on water and overclocked by then end of the year if I can just get this thing to run right with 0 issues.

yes Im familiar with manual overclocking, I also rather do it manual instead of using OC Genie i was just curious how reliable it was.

the error code I get is 124 and based on my previous experience of overclocking my sandy on the P67 platform i can surely affirm its need for vcore voltage.

I must mention again that BSOD happens only when setting all back to auto using fefault parameters

]Can someone PLEASE HELP ME out, Ive been in HOSPITAL having MY HIP Pinned (Which was quite a delicate procedure)..

Anyways Im in recovery +Plus Ive been in the PC / GEEK Business for 20+Plus yrs - And have built quite a few PC's in this period

However I have NEVER TAKEN ON A PROJECT That wasn't designed and built from the ground up without my Specs. etc.

NEVERTHELESS - This time I want to build a Completely NEW PROJECT for ME MYSELF and I. However, I'm asking for the HELP

of the members of this Forum, to "HELP ME CHOOSE A LOT" see below: (AM WILLING TO BUY THE NEW MSI M-POWER BIG BANG Board).

1). HELP Pick me the BEST GAMING Case "for the Money" ATM - Plus window essential that's why I picked this Thread.- I do NOT know
all the PC cases out there as there must be tonnes. I'm Humbly asking for your help, as I want or need a case that can be taken out of
the box with NO FANS to BUY (for once) and all is there so I have NO Modifications to make.

2). HELP me choose a CPU as Ive NOT kept upto DATE with the AMD PILE DRIVER FX-6300 FX-8350 and INTEL i5 / i7 CPU's
I have a Buget of £240 for a CPU, but am hoping not to use up all the "£240 if the NEW FX-6300 FX-8350 are worth a look, however
I guess its a MATTER of Opinion, at the end of the day. I LOVE INTEL I MUST SAY and I usually would settle for nothing less.
However I read that there has been some improvements to the Bulldozer Architecture, to Cross Over to PileDriver I really need to
Know if the AMD Setup is really worth it, but it means BUYING a Modern AMD 990FX Motherboard. which would eat into a reserve
Bank of £100 pounds.

3). Once again, Im doing this Project because I would love a PC that other have helped me (Put together a Rig) NOT just of my ideas
BUT their Ideas too, so I can assure you I will take your suggestions, seriously..
I have PLENTY of GOOD Quality Corsair RAM, I have A (TOP NOTCH Boxed 800w GOLD PSU). My Rig BOARD (only I do NOT have to BUY another)
will be the (ASUS P8P67 EVO Board) I have updated the BIOS to accept the new IVY BRIDGE CPU if needed its ready, (Ivy-B or Sandy-B ready)

4). Anyone whom may have any suggestions on anything else I may have forgotten, apart from MX4 Paste, I have a (NEW 212 EVO Cooler)
+Plus a (Geild GX-7 Cooler) I can use either, Plus I forgot to mention I also have a (NEW Corsair H70) which I bought last year never used.
Most of the main parts I have, just need all off your opinions, and many Kudos, to all to wish to take part and offer HELP.
This may NOT be the ideal forum thread for this build, but come one GUYS you are all intelligent peeps.. and I value your pimping ideas too.

5). That's all I have to SAY only: I really appreciate all who can help or decide to take part cheers! Thanks in Advance to all. - David

PS. I have never asked anyone for help to build a PC its always been my own workman ship, that's why I am "now open from all angles"
for ideas, to build something- So I can say YEH - Thanks to those guys from: that GEEK 'Overclockers Forum'. - Please contribute thanks again.!
smile.gifsmile.gifthumb.gif

Once Again I'm more than happy to BUY the (NEW M-Power MSI Z77 Big Bang Board).. Ive Two MSI & 2x ASUS Motherboards already both P55.with i7 870 and i7 860.

Franco did you change any options in the CPU specifications area? There is an LLC setting. that might help. IF you think its your voltage, but you are certain that its at the right voltage, try raising your LLC. I took snaps of my BIOS setting but they are in BMP form. gimmie a few and I will covert them. I checked and I do have my CSTATES on auto and my C1E on enabled. I also have Intel Speedsteep enabled. My Core spped goes to 1608.44 or idle and 4423.98 on full use. I have it set to 50% LLC and my voltage is at 1.25.

Now here is the strange p[art..on CPU-Z, at idle my voltage reads 1.20v..then when I run OCCT stress test my voltage drops to 1.16...I'm wondering if CPU-Z has it backwards. My temps : Lowest core 52c and highest core was at 63. at idle Lowest is 25 highest is 34..I need to reseat my block and get better thermal paste and I think those will change.

Again C1E enabled, Cstates auto ( disabled is fine too) and EIST, i think thats speedstep ,enabled. I'm not sure about voltages but those worked for me as far as making my CPU down clock at idle. Goodluck Franco

Geekers, if you are going to get the MPower you can forget about the AMD cpu, you'll have to get Intel. The 3570k is a good processor. Also as far as a case goes, if you want fans look at the Azza 9000 or the Rosewill thor. the have fans, They are massive so it might be easy to work with , especillly having a bad hip...on the downside, they are massive..and might be hard to lift. But they are beautiful, roomy, highly customizable, and have fans included.

Brand new board is installed, LED readout still says A0 as apposed to showing the temps like it should. Updated BIOS to 17.4 without issues, hopefully someone can help me figure this out because its gotta be something on my end at this point.

 Have you tried with only single channel memory?

post #639 of 3633
No, I have not. I would think that having Dual Channel memory would be the way to go. I could try putting them in slot1 and slot2 but then I lose the advantage of dual channel memory. Does everybody have to run single channel for something as simple as a temp readout to work? I have to say, I am pretty disappointed in my new build. Every other AMD rig I have ever built was simple, worked right the first time. This intel rig has been a headache. Pretty sad because this was a big chunk of money, and a lot of research, and time, and lost excitement over my new performance gain.
post #640 of 3633

i was asking simply if you use only 1x stick of RAM yet to test?

 

**I get 'A0' when I have memory issues or incompatible RAM on mobo... other than that temp readings are perfect... and spot on too IMO.

 

 Are your RAM Hyper IC by chance? .. or XPSC?
