Can you post your settings? I'm having trouble with getting the CPU stable above 4.2 with 1.3v...
Might be a really bad one, but I want to make sure I'm not missing something.

Anyone else having blue screens with the x99s Gaming 7 due to the Killer NIC? Currently running Windows 8.1 and keep getting BSODs because of it. I've tried:

- Installing the entire suite
- Installing the entire suite and disabling the Killer services
- Installing just the Killer driver
- Installing the driver for Windows 7 instead of Windows 8
- Installing the driver for a Qualcomm AR8161
- Installing an older driver for a Qualcomm AR8161
- Completely wiping Windows 8.1

The only thing keeping me stable at the moment is disabling the Killer NIC and using an old USB wireless dongle. BSODs seem to happen when faster when using Skype and playing BF4 at the same time -- but I will still get BSODs eventually when not using them.

Thinking about ditching this board for the MSI x99s MPower as it has an Intel NIC, however Amazon doesn't even have a listing for it yet.

Reading all this is scaring me. Because I haven't even been able to power up mine yet. Hope it works!

Killer NICs have historically had their share of issues. To be honest, I'd ask MSI for help on it on their forums. They may direct you to contact MSI themselves.

I've got an Z87 XPower coming in myself. Hopefully it won't give me too many issues with the Killer.

Getting the MPower is probably a good call. The XPower is one of the more stable BIOS boards, so I'd imagine the MPower too would be pretty good. The only issue right now that the XPower seems to have is that it has a hard time clocking with high speed DDR4 (we're talking 2800+). That's probably going to be fixed early on. Historically, the OC boards at MSI have generally been more stable than their "Gaming" line of boards. Unless you need the gaming features, I'd recommend getting the OC "yellow" line of boards. That's also true with the GPUs - the Lightning series is well re-nowed.

Honestly, my advice is, if you're willing to spend ~$120 extra, it may be worth getting the XPower. It seems to be a very stable board. Probably the most stable of all the X99 boards right now.

Don't have an X99 XPower, but I have worked with the Z87 XPower so the settings should be the same:
  • Set VCore to 1.3V (make sure your cooling is adequate)
  • Drop the uncore to 3.5 GHz or even 3.0 GHz and lock the Ring Voltage at 1.15V (perhaps lower at 3.0 GHz)
  • VCCIN should be somewhere between 1.9 - 2.0V (generally 0.6V above VCore)
  • CPU over volt, current/under volt, current - Disabled
  • Internal VR OCP/OVP Protect - Disabled
  • Spread Spectrum - Disabled
  • Max out the CPU Switching Frequency
  • Drop your RAM down to stock (1600 MHz was DDR3, so I think drop RAM to under 2000 MHz - you can OC RAM, but focus on the CPU first) and drop it to the rated V
  • PCI-E PLL - lock this one at 100 MHz (more stable)


Then start playing around with the multipler.


You can also use the Vdroop offset after you've gotten things working to get your CPU to lower voltage at idle.

The majority of these issues are not too much to worry about:

  • Early BIOS tends to be buggy.
  • A couple of people seem to have gotten defective boards.
  • Some may have lucked out on the silicon lottery.


The thing to worry about is if there is a hardware flaw that is widespread without any way to correct it. So far, I have not seen anything quite like it. That's one reason why I am waiting until at least spring of next year before making a build myself.

Edit: Can you put my overclocking instructions that I just gave above to Captain Caveman in the original post? It might be useful for some people.

Don't have an X99 XPower, but I have worked with the Z87 XPower so the settings should be the same:
Was told last night on the MSI forums by an administrator to RMA it. I think I'm going to return it to Amazon for a refund and order another Gaming 7 so I get another 30 day return period just in-case it really is the Killer NIC -- I really don't want to be stuck with a mobo that needs another NIC. The only place selling the MPower at the moment is Newegg, which unfortunately has a non-refundable return policy on it and the Egg has a terrible rep with mobo RMAs. Hopefully by the time I pull the trigger on a replacement Amazon will have it.

None of the gaming "features" of the G7 really interested me that much -- it was really the only board in my price range that had a nice red and black theme. However, I am digging the look of the MPower and the extra OC features.

Is anyone able to control the fan speed of the CPU header with a 3-pin fan? No matter what I do, it stays locked to 100%. Yet the sysfan headers seem to have no problem throttling a 3-pin fan....***?
post #88 of 3145
here is mine @ stock, 5820k on xpower, just put togheter the cpu loop, temps seem allright to me :




if im not wrong the 0.975v on full load seem very good to start with.



ok now where do i start with overclock?

FYI - for those that are not liking the standard Killer NIC driver package... There is a driver only version that someone made on the MSI forums... it works well with all Killer NICs and doesn't have the annoying App

im not a fan of those killer nic chips either.
i personaly prefer intel lan.

Strange that Msi using intel lan´s on theire X99S Sli plus and Msi X99S Mpower boards.
