Dude... Is the silicon lottery and really depends on how good CPU you get and for that matter - how good nikos VRMs you get with your 970 board biggrin.gif

When my computer boots up, on the beginning the BIOS lists memory as un-ganged 64-bit.
Guess that means I'm not taking advantage of a 128-bit memory access?
I thought putting them memory sticks in the 1st and 3rd memory slots would give me 128-bit memory, or is there some BIOS setting I've overlooked?

You should search and read this pdf file : AMD_Tuning_Guide_25Oct2009. biggrin.gif
Quote:
The Memory controller of AMD Phenom and AMD Phenom II CPUs can be set to run in Ganged mode or in Unganged mode. Ganged mode means that there is a single 128bit wide dual-channel DRAM Controller (DCT) enabled. Unganged mode enables two 64bit wide DRAM Controllers (DCT0 and DCT1).

The recommended setting in most cases is the Unganged memory mode. Ganged mode may allow slightly higher Memory performance tuning and performs well in single-threaded benchmarks.

Depending on the motherboard and BIOS, it may be required manually setting the timing parameters for each DCT (in Unganged mode) when performance tuning the memory or fine tuning the timings. Some BIOS versions apply the same timings automatically for both DCTs in an Unganged mode.

My second MSI 970 gaming motherboard just stopped working.
My first MSI 970 Gaming stopped working less then a year after installing it.
Any ideas on what other brand of motherboard I should get to replace it?
As I'm going to not buy any more MSI motherboards

I picked up and installed the Gigabyte 990FXA UD3 (v 4.1) last night, but I'm not liking the BIOS.
So later today I might return it for the Asus M5A99X Pro 2.0, it's only $15 more.

Does anyone here have the datasheets for the pk616ba nad the pk632ba? After repeatedly asking msi support for any useful data they kept repeating that they don't have any information about these mosfets. They even closed my thread afterwards,very disappointed with the quality of their support staff.
