MSI Z87 Thread - Xpower & Mpower Max BIOS screens and info - Page 6

post #51 of 476
Hey CL3P20,

I have an Mpower Max motherboard with a 4770K. I noticed everytime i do a complete cold boot, it sometimes BSODs the first time then boots into the operating system without an issue. What voltage setting do i need to increase to prevent this from happening? Is it the VCCin?

Try turning "DRAM training" to disabled.. sounds like its failing on the first boot due to incorrect training settings between RAM and IMC. *If it were volts.. it should repeat every boot.. not only on the first.

 

*lack of uncore/Ring volts = fail to load OS.. usually hardlock to blackscreen

*lack of vccin = POST fail or BSOD loading OS

*too much vccin = 'lost' VGA signal.. CPU "forgets" PCIE link and needs reboot to correct

*SA voltages are really dependent on what type of IC your RAM are, along with quantity of memory and total latency ... usually enough means you can POST.. too little and no POST

this is what I was looking for, thanks CL3P20 biggrin.gif

it gets past the windows 7 orbs, shows the mouse and a black screen then does a BSOD after this it restarts again and then boots into OS just fine.

I tried using different voltages and low memory frequencies but for now its left to XMP profile and I have achieve a stable overclock for 4.2Ghz

What is your uncore or Ring multi set to? 

post #56 of 476
Here are my settings
CPU Ratio Mode - Dynamic
Adjust CPU Ratio - 42
EIST and Turbo boost -enabled
Adjusted Ring ratio - auto (39x)
Adjusted Ring Frequency - 3900Mhz
DRAM Reference Clock - Auto
DRAM Frequency - Auto
XMP - profile 2 (2400Mhz)
DRAM Timing Mode - Auto
Memory Fast boot - auto
VCCIN Voltags - 1.900V
CPU Core Voltage Mode - Adaptive
CPU Core Voltage - 1.165
CPU Core Offset mode is -
CPU Core Voltage Offset - 0.005

Bios is v1.0, with the other bios (1.1) it would just BSOD if it wasnt stock settings. MSI recommends using 1.0 for 4770K

Seems my cpu isn't stable with a higher ring multi. I'll try feeding cpu more volts and report back

You dont need cpu volts for ring multi.. you need ring voltage. Set 1v ring leave all other settings and see if it boots os.

My system was completely unstable with the 1.0 bios - even with stock settings. I wen't on the MSI forums and I found the 1.2B8
http://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=169759.msg1240621#msg1240621

After flashing that, I just put XMP, gave CPU voltage 1.15V and 42x cpu multi. Didnt touch anything else. This always boots perfectly even from cold boot - no more training issues. I'm going to run p95 to see if its stable.

Thanks for all your help CL3P20!
