That is not an issue with Windows 10. That is just the bad software. It is not ment to save to BIOS. The settings are just not saved at all and are "forgotten" after a reboot. I have the same board and wanted to controll my fans with it. After many boot cycles I googled and could just not believe it: The software is there to only test the settings and then do the real settings in the BIOS mad.gif

I deinstalled it and switched back to Speedfan that I used already years ago. If you are curious: the board is fully supported. All fans can be controlled. Nearly all temperatures are read (the exception is the overall CPU temp - the one that is also shown on the Mobo LED, you only get the core temps). Pretty happy with it. Especiall since Speedfan supports all fan settings from 0% - 100% and not just from 50% up as the Bios and Command Center are doing.

Could of be the overclock settings, but it did reset the BIOS itself.
Haven't had an issue since.

It has scrambled the bios. "A" and "B" are both gonners. I talked to the tech folks. Just need to call them next week and RMA yet another MSI board. This will be my last ever MSI product.

How the hell can that happen??

Luckily mine is running fine again, but yeah I'm a little regretful not waiting for the X99 Sabertooth to come into stock, but Jayztwocents said the board was awesome as he is using it in his test bench, even saw him do a 4.5Ghz on a 5820k so I figured the Gaming 7 would be ok..

That board (Sabertooth, i was also going to get that one) disables the last pcie slot completely if you have an m.2 installed.

 

Seems they haven't sorted this m.2 slot out very welll for X99.

 

On the godlike, you need to keep the last slot empty for pcie 3.0 x4 m.2

 

If there is any card in that slot (1x to 8x) it will force the m.2 to run of PCH (pcie 2.0 x2 mode).

Just built my new system, 5930k on the x99a sli plus. First time using an msi mobo/bios, so color me confused. Trying to overclock but nearly every option under the oc tab is permanently set to auto. Can't adjust cpu voltage or core ratio, so at the moment I'm either stuck at 3.75ghz with the turbo boost or 3.9ghz using oc genie(when it works at all, originally it tried to set its "safe" oc to 4.89ghz...). Is manual in-bios overclocking not possible with this board, or am I doing something wrong?

There should be a setting in the OC section where you can change simple to advanced, then you can manually overclock.

That's the problem. I go to the OC section and the only real difference between simple and advanced is the number of fields in the view. Except for a few fields they're either greyed out or locked on auto. Very confused at the moment, but as I have a raging frustration induced headache I'm probably not thinking particularly straight right now.

EDIT: Whelp, gonna go hang myself in utter shame now...turns out I absolutely forgot that the numpad on the keyboard won't input numbers in bios...

All good mate, we've all done it, overlooked the simplest of things.
Glad you got it sorted thumb.gif

I did a quick (like 30 mins) OC run over the weekend and ran into an issue. I was following a OC guide online and got to the part where I had to use offset voltage. I changed the values to + and started with .010 offset and when I rebooted the bios code a9 stayed on the screen. After resetting my cmos I decided to wait until I had more time to play with it before I did any real damage lol. I was able to get the chip up to 4.4 using auto voltage (read 1.229 at load) before I started playing with offset so I'm pretty excited to see how far I can tweak this thing!

With yesterday's stupidity out of the way, I spent about 20 minutes tinkering with the 5930k. Rock steady 4.5 @ 1.25v, temps all <55 running Aida64 stress test. I'd planned to keep tweaking, but now I'm thinking I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth and just accept a respectable 29% overclock and call it a day.
