They don't have a "overclocker's department" while many of the tech support may be familiar with overclocking or do it themselves thats another thing. And A0 as I stated earlier is an issue with storage devices - easily seen in the American Megatrends, Inc.
Aptio 4.x Status Codes manual:
0xA0 IDE initialization is started. Its not a state secret lol, I do recommend that you and everyone else download this and put it on a mobile device with a pdf reader wink.gif
Again - please disconnect all storage devices (read: even flash drives or memory cards in reader that I saw on your bios wink.gif ) and then boot the computer > also look in bios for sysstem devices and look at what your drive configuration is setup in, as CL3P20 said... if this is in IDE mode I strongly suggest you reinstall windows, after backing up your info and switching to AHCI mode.
they need to troubleshoot with the above strategy as I would guess you know too.
if you did install the drive in IDE mode you will definitely be lacking performance compared to AHCI.
You know that the obsessing always helps you do better since you are pouring over every detail tongue.gifwink.gif . Whats worse with me is I obsess and am pessimistic about my work, so everything I do and what people see I am never satisfied. At least it is better that when I am through and someone sees it they really like it - but I am still picky about it after that fact. I have spent a few hundred hours testing this board, and even more using it since I got it. I have obsessed over testing to the point of literally making myself sick, by wearing myself out. LOL :/
2 dimms will be easier to on the IMC than 4dimms wink.gif

Say Goat Eater while I think of It...........................

How do you add one of those little traditional bios beepers/buzzer on the motherboard

Tried on the appropriate black terminals block, for speaker and buzzer(shows the designations) even reversed leads but never any post beep or anything.

The beeper is the traditional small black round one with red and black leads to the black base female plug ins.

On most competitors boards you add it and then you hear the "beep" on okay initialization.

How are the avexirs?


Thx, its my first foray into watercooling! I'm happy so far, except for the vipers! Too noisy, gonna get 2 more (5 in already) GT 1850's and paint them yellow.

The avexir's are awesome, had them upto 2500 mhz with slightly tighter timings
Been trying my hardest to get my cpu upto 5ghz, had it boot at 4950, but volts was pushing 1.6!! Scary stuff!!
Temps at 1.54 v max at 69c, oh and my chips de-lidded!

I' was one of the first people here to get this MotherBoard and I'm learning new stuff about tweaking it all the time.
You have to put in the time to learn to tweak it but its a great MB once you do the time.
Found a sweet spot for 24/7 5ghz.
Ambient Temps 24C
RAM 2133mhz CL 9-11-10-27 1T @1.5v
3570k@5ghz with 1.376v

I agree the vipers are noisy. I turn mine down to 50% speed with MSI Control Center and I get the exact same temps 100% or 50%. AP-15's are great! I wish they came in 140mm variety.

and damn nice temps! I really want to delid but I am a bit scared. Maybe after I financially recover from this build and can take the gamble.

Oh ya. for $350 you can have my cables tongue.gif. That's about how much it cost me with all supplies and materials considering this was my first time ever sleeving. Spent roughly $270 at MDPC (had to buy crimp tool and molex tool) and about 70 bucks at princess auto on 18gauge wire and a heatgun. tongue.gif Can you believe I did all of that without a proper wire stripper? hahahahah.

I didn't have to but I wanted to make custom lengths for perfect cable management in the back. Figured I may as well since I have a fully modular PSU and I am sleeving in the first place. I can't stand clutter back there.

I also went a little overboard on the MDPC and got a fair bit extra but I'm glad because I made lots of mistakes and had to redo. Got way too many crimp pins too and nearly every type of connector.

350 bargain!! What rad you using up top? Is it 55mm? Did you have any probs wih clearance for fans? I had to bend my monsta a little otherwise it pressed against mobo heatsink

I also tried one of the scythe 5400rpm fans in the bottom but couldn't control he thing!! Probably wouldn't need water if you just used those in your case, absolutely mental fans.
