Whats changing in the beta BIOS?
post #802 of 3634
Dunno yet for sure...
Its seems pretty stable so far
Perhaps more stability at least appears so
Needs a dab more v core here, changes temp by negligible amount
Ramping cpu up and down(min-max) here requires same way as my post earlier


EDIT: new Bios Again 17.5 B8

testing, so far pretty good

Reset all to default. Reflashed 17.4 BIOS only. Forgot to clear CMOS first though but gave this a shot anyways. Went in, reset my ram to linked, 2000mhz, and 9-11-11-28 timings. Didnt realize this, but I guess you have to enter your CPU multiplier with the keyboard? On the first BIOS that was on the board you clicked and it gave a drop down menu. Does everyone enter theirs on the keyboard? I put in 40, my cpu clocked to 4.0ghz just fine. Im on the stock intel cooler still so I ran prime for about 5 minutes only. Still seeing voltages higher than where I want to be which of course is causing more heat. Anyways, went back into BIOS and lowered multiplier to 38 and took some pictures. Dont pay attention to how the BIOS is still reporting 4.0ghz because I didnt save and exit before taking the pics for you all.

***EDIT***
Got the voltages set using the keyboard as well! Woot. Making big headway right now! x38 multi at 1.07v and saved 8-14*c! WOW!
Now my issues, with my multi set at 38x for some reason I am not seeing a 16x downclock now.
And of course, my board is still reading out A0.
Getting closer to having this all figured out, then I will drop the cash on my water setup and begin to overclock and finish my build.
good to see it progressing - Just remember if you are still on the stock cooler as you had stated earlier. You will get higher temps with that if you attempt to OC, it is not great for anything over stock builds

Oh I won't be over clocking on the stock cooler don't you worry about that.

Any luck with the A0 readout and how to get rid of it?
post #805 of 3634
personally i dont understand how people are getting several replacements with the same error..it has to be a hardware issue?!?!?. the board is one of the best out..and for the price..i mean come on fellas!. dont give up!!! and yes this bios is crazy..it takes time

I only got one replacement because it was two days into ownership and that's what the MSI "tech support" guy told me to do. He said his whole team didn't know what A0 was and that the board should automatically read out temps so I must have a broken temp sensor. He was clearly wrong. Their tech support is not that great. Granted still noone can tell me why my board reads A0.
post #807 of 3634

A0 is part of the BIOS string that cycles just before OS load.. you can see A9 as well when loading into OS.

 

*Im not certain what its from either though... just adding to the discussion

O_O I'm in love. Great balance of colors, I love black and yellow and you balanced the two colors brilliantly. Amazing looking rig!

i got an a2 and it was when i put different memory in the board..so im thinking a0 will be something with the memory also? and tech support is garbage on most manufacturers..you have to talk to the overclockers there..well when there there..when i owned my asus i had some questions and tech support didnt know anything. then they finally put me on the phone with the overclockers..solved my problem..i woesnt rma a boad that i know woesnt broke..maby try and call back and ask to get in tough with that department ..if they have it.

That read out here usually shows around 30-32 after running for hours if I look in the case

I don't why the motherboard companies just don't dispense with all the lights and glitz ...............just make a beefy motherboard.
