Maybe a good idea to clean the CPU pads to check for any possible burns/rust or socket rot. It's a bit tough to see through the goo. thumb.gif

I have a 3930K lying around that virtually never ran. The system has the same issue, so I'm guessing it's the Mainboard.

Time to dismantle it and wash off all the silicone grease.

I'm getting a 850 pro 512 GB drive I want as bout.can I still use my 840's in raid or once raid is set in bios does that make all data 6gb ports stay in raid?

Leave it set to Raid 0 and everything should be fine man redface.gif

Ty I'll be removing the 910 SSD as it sits way to snug under 1st TX hybrid. Move it to the server. I'll secure erase the drives then set em up and just make the new 850 main boot drive.

I'm curious to see if it would allow me to lock down 4.6 GHz at or under 1.4v.

Is it possible to switch between two different BIOS or is it the case that if you change the BIOS it changes both of the BIOS on the board? Meaning, can I flash to 0208 on the secondary BIOS spot and keep 0507 as primary?

I've been running 0507 since 2014 as I'm not running an NVME drive and the only real compelling reason to update to say 0801 was the NVME support so I don't really know how to update the BIOS other than that I need format a flash drive to Fat32 and use the included file Homecinema posted a few posts up.

I vaguely remember reading that one can't save BIOS settings via flash drive and apply them to a different BIOS? So I would need to go in and redo my entire overclock.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

You can absolutely flash two different bios versions to the two chips.  Just make sure you only update one of them and don't let it copy the update to the other.

I suppose I will use the EZ-Flash method as shown on page 3-51 but ensuring that I switch to the current secondary BIOS position first?

If this is successful I guess it's just a matter of having a look at all of my various OC settings in 0507, writing them down, and then switching to 0208 and plugging them in and then trying to see what it can do in terms of CPU frequency vs. vcore?

Thanks again.

Also, man this forum is a real gem, I just learned about E5 1680 v2 as a potential upgrade path, too bad they are still going for $700+ on ebay:

I wish I registered earlier, oh well, better late to the party than ever.

Choose the chip you want to flash by selecting the red bios chip button bottom right of mobo next to the black direct key button .

A orange led next to the bios chip indicates which one thumb.gif

The 208 bios dropped my o/c by .1vc @ 4.6Ghz wheee.gif

I think I remember reading somewhere that saved bios settings via flashdrive can only be applied to the same bios.


This ^^

and

This vv

I powered down my rig put in a fat32 formatted usb in top port next to clr button , hold button underneath until it starts to flash then release and wait . Should be updated to whatever bios thumb.gif

Plus to flash both chips is a manual setting in the bios , so no risk

Use a usb 2.0 stick, usb 3.0 won't work.
