MSI 990FXA GD80

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
This may be a stupid ask,,,,
Can anyone tell me if the digital display on this mobo is a TEMP gauge or error code or both????
when i go into set up from cold the temp reads 38c-39c but exit then go into 'PiriForm Speccy' it reads 15c whats correct??
post #2 of 6
39C is probably the CPU temp, while 15C is the core temp. The core temp is calculated by an algorithm and becomes accurate once above 40C. That's why you get at idle so low core temps, because they aren't accurate (as in below ambient temp).

That little led display is the coolest thing since ice cream. All motherboards should have it. thumb.gif



While it is loading it shows what is loading and its state. If there is an error it shows the error code, making troubleshooting much much easier. After it has booted it shows the CPU temp from the bios.

Really? I don't like it. I myself have a Crosshair V Formula Z and my brother a GD80v2.
I just cannot overclock on his board, while I get 4.5 GHz at 1.35 V with his CPU on my motherboard, I can't hit 4.4 GHz at 1.4 on his..
Also sometimes the board randomly detects only 4GB (8GB is detected but only 4 is usable in windows).
After setting up watercooling it suddenly only boots in IDE mode..

I am sure I am doing something wrong but there are so much flaws and not even a option of LLC..
I don't know how to overclock using this board..

Real men don't need LLC lol

I'm just teasing , it's a valuable tool for some motherboards, the GD - 80 ( on my current bios and cc versions) really doesn't miss it, my CHV-Z's are pretty terrible without it. Still learning how the UD 5 plays along with it, the EXTREME 3 is just that - too extreme in it's vboost.


On a serious note, it sounds like he is well on his way to a corrupted bios. Have him flash to the latest version and see how he gets along. Different bios and versions of control center behave differently ( the way it manages power delivery especially) so it's hard to offer "one size fits all" overclocking advice.
