MSI Z77 Mpower owners club / All things MPower - Page 93

post #921 of 3634
I'd never done MSI before either

Go to their site and get the special bios tool

Works really good always perfect here.

http://forum-en.msi.com/faq/article/user-guide-for-msi-hq-forum-flash-tool

Just load optimized defaults beforehand of course with no overclock.

Follow flash tool info and make key disc good to go.

After flash shut it down and clear cmos/bios by jumper across motherboard terminals and working start buttons on case to clear caps.

Then in window s Instal Intel Management Engine Components.

I flashed mine up to 17.5 last night using the "mflash" utility from within the BIOS.

Can you explain to me the process? DO I have to unzip the bios first? Does the USB have to be clean and formatted?

I thought you already figured that your PSU was inadequate for the clocks you were running?

 

*Im confused on why you thought it would help your OC.. Alex confirmed that the Lightnings use voltage from the power connections and not the PLL/PCI-E slot. Another manufacturer GPU may benefit ..If you have a DMM you can measure the input voltage on your cards to see if your PSU is dipping.. 

 

 Right at the PCI-E plug, just measure the 12v pins and monitor under load. I have had very different experiences with PSU's and current supply affecting GPU clocks. While testing my 6950 TFIII, I found that my 650W was inadequate.. as it was only supplying ~11.89v under load to my GPU's... which resulted in a max clock speed of ~1025mhz. After changing PSU to TPQ1200W ... input voltages went up to 12.18v .. and consequently GPU's could run 1080mhz stable as well.

 

 

-Moral of the story = dont rule out your PSU just because the 'Aux' power didnt help... [especially since we now know that the 680 lightnings dont pull PLL power in the same manner as other cards].

Place unzipped BIOS file on any USB.. does NOT have to fresh or formatted..
Boot into BIOS.. go to MFlash..
select update BIOS from USB.. select file.. click .. mobo reboots.. and your done.
 
**Now I have not been updating the 'ME' .. I have done only BIOS and had great results.. others it seems are a mixed group.. some updated ME and BIOS and were good.. others did not have such good luck updating both.

well the bigger powersupply was beneficial cause i was pulling over 930w with my cards overclocked..my max oc in sli was 1430.. i can currently get another 30mhz. then i run into heat problems..so i was saying i really didnt need the extra power for just that little extra..but for christmas im hopeing i can get the ok from the wife to go custom with 2 blocks...but my 850 was fine running stock and a pretty good oc for a run or 2 on haven or 3dmark..but its bad to run your psu at near 100% so the extra power will def help that..and a 1250 watt gold cert psu for 147.99 and it came with a 100 gift card thrue sparkle. so it was to good to pass up!!!.. the guy at microcenter told me it was a great psu also..he also said it was the most expensive psu they carried at one time..and it was in the back for over a year and they just kept throwing clearence stickers on it.so unless you went online and looked for the sparkle 1250 on there web site you wouldnt have known they even had it in stock!

I would Make sure the usb stick is fat 32
Updated the ME here with the bios update its in the packaged file


edit: Nov 27/12

The reason y use the MSI forum HQ flash tool on a usb stick(not M flash) is way less chance of MAC address corruption

Thanks CL3P2O. Pretty straight forward. by ME do you mean INtel management engine driver?

I also found this tool on the MSI forum.

They say it has a 100% succes rate till today, be carefull though as this is not supported by MSI, but it looks pretty good.


So tomorrow i can finally start upgrading my pc with the Z77 Mpower, hope all goes well......

Do you guys have lucid vitru enabled? Will I run into any trouble because I recall there were some driver issues.
