So the fact that there have been quit a few BIOS corruptions has nothing to do wit a potential manufacturers issue? You mean to tell me that someone inputing bad cpu or memory voltage and/or clocks is the reason that the BIOS suddenly corrupts? A lot of these issues are due to exactly that. Personally it sounds like an unstable and poorly written BIOS. I suffered from the BIos corruption bug on my first over lock....and no i do not have crappy ram. Over locking takes "user error" to Stabilize.
l think when someone invests in a board like this they are going to get the best or at least qvl ram. Don't get me wrong, ow that i have tamed the beast that is the MPower i love this board. But i am still wary with every restart from a new over lock...i am one of those people that has a stable board but this didn't happen till after i experienced the BIOS bug and replaced with a new one

when panther first came out i bought the Asus Sabertooth,it too had Bios issues. This is a new board,and with it comes issues that i Believe MSI will address.

Hi guys !

I have a little issue that I wasn't able to fix by myself, so I guess your knowledge might help me:
Before windows load, my POST screen isn't centered. I mean, it's like the monitor wasn't correctly configured (everything is fine after the POST).

I tried unplugging & plugging them back, tried to launch an "auto-detect" during the POST, without luck.

Might be the time to do a bios upgrade ? I'm still running on the default one as I had no issues with it, I don't know if that can help me ?

My board is great!!! Way better then the sabertooth or extreme 6 that I have owned out of the z77 lineup.the thing is if u don't know what your doing..don't do it. Research is key. Also hardware problems and compatabiliy seems to be the root to some problems.

Hello guys, I am a proud owner of the Mpower since Monday.
post #745 of 3634
I still debate taking mine back for a sabertooth exchange. I'm hoping the experts here in this thread can get me sorted out though, either that or there is some known bios issues that MSI will release a bios update to fix. Like the user above, my post screen will come in in the correct resolution sometimes, and other times it will try to come in full screen but be all glitchy looking. Sometimes if I enter bios when I get the weird looking post screen I then get a glitch overlapping bios screen like I posted on the last page that is unusable. Still have A0 posted on my debug screen, and still having a hard time getting settings that I set to stick. Thisboard is holding me back from getting my water cooling loop bought and built as well as actually getting to over clock my CPU like MSI brags this board can do so well.

Well I tried your power option settings on your 4400mhz and mine never clocks down to 1600's

Keep in mind i am running at 4500mhz but still should clock down

In real temp she will clock down to 2800's,3800's, 4000's etc but on cpuiz it never clocks down.

Its a great stable board............... but a pain in the rear to clock down to 16x then auto ramp up to oc..Strange

Just.. um... I did that. While the Sabertooth isn't a bad board, seems stable and, well, it works, it's more... idk how to explain it. The MPower board felt like a quality board, this Sabertooth feels more like a little toy with a plastic shroud gimmick.

The MPower also has more convenient features imo ,like the GoToBIOS button, loved that thing, as well as integrated bluetooth and wifi, additionally, a simpler UEFI system.. my opinion of course.

All I know is, I can't wait to get my replacement and sell off this Sabertooth, Munky misses his MPower sad-smiley-002.gif
