I guess my card reader would be called a USB card reader. Its part of the case, but connects using one of the front panel USB ports on the motherboard. Would hate for that to be the issue because in order to not have A0 readout I'd have to give up my front panel USB slots and my card reader. I'll give both these things a try in the morning and see how it goes. I'll be sure to report back my findings.

Newhighscore has my case and this board, wonder if he's having that issue or if he ditched the card reader. Not that its definitely the issue.

Hi Guys,

I have been following this thread for a few days now and in a couple of days i will be getting my Mpower board.
I was just wondering if it would be wise to update the bios to the latest version before installing Windows or would it be better to use the bios the board came with and only update the bios if i have some issues?
post #854 of 3633
I wouldn't update it just yet, only if you have issues. I need to use manual voltage for anything past 4.5 on 17.4 it seems like. I've only had the board for a day though.
post #855 of 3633
I would update the bios prior to windows installation. 17.5 is in beta now and will probably be out soon but 17.4 is the latest.
post #856 of 3633
If the board still comes with the original(first) bios then i'd defo update. Although installing windows+updates, etc you will be fine, at least you will know its working.

I'm still using my MSI Z77 MPower at the moment.

Not sure if this helps anyone, but these are the latest driver updates that I have noticed since October 18th, I checked these yesterday.

Hi guys, I have just placed an order for a Mpower today for Thanksgiving OC session. But this review (http://www.pureoverclock.com/Review-detail/msi-z77-mpower/12/) says the cpu voltage is capped at 1.7 V as indicated by vprobe measurement (CPUZ is inaccurate). Is it really true. The spec says otherwise (up to 2.xx volts). 1.7V is really low for sub-zero OC.

Thanks smile.gif

I wonder what BIOS they are running.. ? Pizzaman here on OCN as well as a few others were witness to some overclockers that got to play around with the Mpower with full dewars.. They reported several users at +6ghz with more than 1.8vcore.

 

*personally I have not tested beyond 1.72vcore with my CPU ... though from what I have seen so far, I have no reason to suspect that the vcore circuit is 'capped' at ~1.7v.. I have measured with DMM myself as well.

 

like so..running 5.6ghz, 4c/8t @ 1.58vcore

Started with a full fresh BIOS. Changed my memory to link and changed the frequency to 2000. Rebooted, changed the timings to where I wanted them. Rebooted, adjusted CPU voltage to where I wanted and made sure EIST and C1E where enabled. Rebooted to OS. Ran prime95 with CPU-Z and watched for a moment. Turbo kicked in and shot to 3.8ghz. Stopped prime95 and watched the cpu scale to x16. All sounds great right? Heres when things get weird. Go back into BIOS. Dial in x39 multi, only option changed. Come back to OS and run programs again, x39 multi took hold and my CPU was running at 3.9ghz like it should. Turn off prime95, no x16 scaling. The only option changed with to begin overclocking was the cpu multi.. WTH?
