MSI Z77 Mpower owners club / All things MPower - Page 78

post #771 of 3633
I have not checked but I suspect they are the same!

The bigger issue is the Igpu voltage of 1.250v which shows red in control center!

Today I did not have time to adjust the settings, but in the evening I try again

*Update*

I went ahead and tried the MSIHQ's method located here: http://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=160450.0

Followed it to the letter and still Bios A is dead. It's locked in a power-on-off-on-off boot cycle death grip mad.gif

Dunno what else to do. Hopefully The Goat Eater will have a solution. My good/happy feelings about this board are going downhill fast. I am not having a good time with this thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

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


I sold my saber for the mpower and took a hefty loss..but the board is by far way more stable. And it matches my lightnings..waiting on newegg to stock the mpower ram..going for max speed this build. Also sold my 3570k and picked up a 3770k. I dunno y people say they are the same for gaming. I picked up noticeable performance in game. And it oc way higher with better temps..and for 229.99 at micro. Same price as the I5 on other sites..hands down MSI made a beast of a setup.buying a 1250 watt psu cause my 850 crashes when I add volts to my cards.and I wana try the 6 pin on the mpower to see if I can get even better stable oc with my cards.

That's the method I used exactly as it's posted. It's linked in my post # 772. After it successfully flashed and asked me to reboot I did. Again my efforts were rewarded with the same dead bios. If Goat Eater can't help me, I will ditch this board and purchase an Asus. I'm at the end of my rope with MSI.

It down clocks on real temp 1840,1910, 2970,2980, differing 3000's,differing 4000's you can see it there in real temp

But never goes down to 16x and never in cpuid/cpuiz

Downloaded the newest MSI Control Center and some cores do move say low 4000's and even bounce up into 5000's
You can see this in Overclocking>Advanced, cpu graphs
Also underneath each cpu plot cpu 0 to cpu3 is the ratio setting 45/45
When just sitting on the desktop with almost no cpu use though dropping down mostly low 4000's

 

Im still a bit foggy on what your doing here.. sounds like you have CPU bouncing between 4-5ghz...? If you set only CPU multi on the main OC settings page.. and set to 45 [making sure that independent core multi's in the CPU page are still default] what happens then?

*Same as above.. can you guys start showing BIOS pics or listed settings your changing/using?

Thats tough luck

Might as well move on, ones time is worth something and you can sure spend a heck of a lot of it.

I know the ramping up and down on cpu power is a definite issue but not nearly as bad as you have it.

Thanks for your help its appreciated

It will ramp up and down with real temp though not as low as 16x

I wonder about the numbers for the 4 core limits in "CPU features" maybe they are wrong

Actually good question what are their defaults?

I have done many builds and never had that issue but there is a first time for everything
There is a definite glitch with powering up and down on cpu multiplier, another poster mentioned several pages back about it as well.

 I am unable to recreate the symptoms you guys are having.. unless I set the 4 core limits on CPU page.. If I refresh all settings to default and start adjustments from fresh BIOS.. and ONLY move CPU multi on main OC settings page, and make sure C1E and EIST are enabled ; I get fully functional 16x scaling on idle.

 

**On another note - I had some good success with +2500mhz on my Team Dark RAM today.. working on 32mil stable at +2600mhz now biggrin.gif

I got it finally, whew

Ramps up and down in the MSI control center!!thumb.gif

set "CPU Ratio" - Auto

"Adjust CPU Ratio IN OS" - Disable

Set each the 4 core limits in "CPU Features" - 45 my oc number
