Awesome, thanks. I actually got it to work.
How can you be sure it supports NVMe though?

It was mentioned in the changelog a couple BIOS versions earlier.

I noticed the dual bios led (green on bios A and blue on bios B) on the motherboard are lighted, I remember when I built this PC, only bios A green led was on. Any one know why both leds are on now?

I just got installed yesterday an Intel i7 5820K and MSI x99A Raider and so far I love it. Now I need to overclock it, but I haven't overclocked since 2011, I feel like I'm rusted. Any guides to overclock this two that you guys can point me to?

Before I built my current build I was with AMD for a long, long time. I too was pretty friggen out there when I built this, but here's the best link I can give you to start, this was really well put together, despite being composed for a previous Haswell design and not the Haswell-E, it's easy to keep in mind that we are using a stock 3.3GHz CPU and not a stock 4.0+GHz CPU, so obviously cache values and even of course CPU values must be noted and taken into consideration.

Read all of it, I know that the urge is there to just skim it and "get down and dirty" because of the "itch", but read all of this and, if you can't print it out for reference while you're in BIOS and forget that one thing you read (like I do all the time...), at least write it down. This helped me obtain an incredibly stable 4.5GHz overclock on my 5820K with a 3400MHz uncore and 2666MHz RAM 4x8GB; this and of course the Haswell-E Leaderboard thread too, but I kind of "picked things up" here and there while browsing daily through that thread...

Works fine for me, but please use at your own risk.

E7885IMSm.M72 - 16.00 MB


New bios to play with!! Yay! Will test them. Thanks.

+ Rep


Update 1: WOW!! This bios are absolutely amazing! I recommend them at least from my experience so far to all X99S Mpower owners!

Rock solid, much more stable than previous M60 and overclocks a LOT easier than previously and even.

To explain that about the overclock, with the previous M60 bios if I set the settings too much or too low etc, I would get no boot, failed OC and had to to a bios reset etc, etc.

With these, I even tried previous bios settings I had tried with the M60 that resulted to no boot and failed OC and thsese worked and even booted! E.g I couldn't run my ram@3200 before at CL15 and only CL16 was bootable@1.4v but these even allowed me to boot 3200CL16@1.38v. They even booted 3200CL14@1.4 but wasn't HCI memtest stable. CL15 was barely stable. Might have to tune some timing settings to make it stable.

Also Cinebench and XTU are giving me constant results which the previous bios were a bit up and down. E.g CB was giving me in one run 14.22 and in the next 14.25 or 14.33 etc. These they reset the same results. I even tried balanced and High performance in windows and they both gave me 14.62 all 3 runs. Previously will fluctuate a bit. The same for XTU.

To sum it up they allow me to boot with settings that previous bios had failed to boot mostly about the ram at least. That's my experience. And so far no freezes or crashes or anything. We keep testing them more. But they looks like keepers for me.

Also I haven't tested the bios in terms of voltage yet(will do now) but so far they seem much more "flexible" overclocking wise.

That's what I experience. Different system might seems different results. thumb.gif

Update 2: In terms of voltage is the same. Same requirements for my 4.4 and 4.5GHz OC. I can bet on it and its not a placebo that seems bios seems a lot better than previous test M10 and M60.

Highly recommended. thumb.gif

Good question

1- You should have no problem OC the cpu with that board at all but the OC depend in the silicon quality for the CPU itself some CPU cant oc to 4.5ghz and some can do that your luck

2- I have read many user have problem with Kingston ddr4 i recommended the Gskill or Adata or Corsair LPX will work good

keep in mind to use 2800-3000mhz ddr4 clock you need the BLCK 125mhz not 100mhz so if you like 100mhz BLCK just get 2666mhz or 3200mhz kit

3- No problem at all that case have room for 280m rad in the top and compatible with ATX board

4- maybe the push/pull fan will conflict with first ram stick (kingston one not gskill or corsair )

5- you have 2 option for SLI + 5820k that mobo have 4 PCI slot

you can use PCI slot number 1 +2 the result 16x/8x but the cards will be very close thats not good for the temp

or you can use PCI slot number 1 +3 the result 8x/8x and plenty space between the cards thumb.gif

the next x99 cpu will be in the Q1 2016


I ended up getting the Corsair h110i GT, and the case is as stated a Corsair Obsidian 550d. Mobo is the Krait x99a.

Regarding nr3 there is BIG problem; the 550d case does not have room for the radiator + fans, the fans or the radiator (depending on how you try to set up) are in the way of the power and fan connectors on top.

So now I am not sure what to do, one solutions is to buy thinner fans, and most likely get worse cooling...

I am also seeing on the Corair forums similar problems with x99 cards, but I am guessing its not only x99 cards that got this problem. Corair looks to be selling stuff that is not compatible with each other!

Any ideas on what to do?

And now I found this page, wish I found it earlier:
http://www.corsair.com/en/blog/2015/april/corsair-hydro-series-cpu-cooler-decoder-ring-and-case-compatibility-chart

According to this page the 550d case is not compatible with 280 mm radiators. I also see on the Corsair pages that they later warn people about the 550d and 280 radiators.

It looks like I either need to fit the one fan that is in way of the power connectors, or go back to the 80i cooler, which looks like does fit with the ram I have.

Hmm corsair website say the 550D support H110 cooler and your H110I GT is longer by 1mm so should fit just fine but if the fans blocked by the board vrm heatsink you can install the fans outside the case

it will work just fan as pull but the case will be ugly at the end its up to you..

I am able fit it 'good enough', but 1 of the fans can only be secured with 1 screw, and the other side rest up on the power connectors on the top, and also secured by a wire to the back (inside). It somehow works, but its not advised to get 280 mm water cooler on top with this case and mobo (most likely any mobo).

I am pretty sure the 550d is the problem, it does not have enough room in the top.

Any advice on using the preapplied thermal paste on the hydro? I guess it should do fin compared to self applied Arctic Silver (a few years old now so...).
