[Official] MSI X370 XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM AM4 Owners Club - Page 56

post #551 of 1107
Hi guys, just a quick question. My first time seeing a motherboard having both 8pin and 4pin 12v. What's the purpose of this? should we use both or just 1? My PSU is capable of connecting both.

Currently im only using the 8pin 12v. Is there any reason i should use both?
post #552 of 1107
At min usr the 8 pin or use both.


The additional 4 pin give you more amp capability. In another thread someone just burnt their board. If he had smoother connector it would likely not happened. That said you don't "need" the additional connector. My opinion odds the engineer knew what he was doing, it's on there, so use it

But its clear that MSI are struggling with this bios and with little to NO feedback I am not willing to sit back and hope that some time in the distant future they may get around to doing the job properly.

Good luck all, I hope you various issues are sorted soon.

Did you build one of those Sinclair kits?

I helped a buddy upgrade the memory on one of those TRaSh 80 CoCo computers. It was a hack process stacking the DIPP chips and I think a little soldering. His father walked us through the process.

The Titanium is a rock-solid board, but MSI is piss-poor with their customer relations. If they could even just *communicate* through their forums as to what they are doing or any reason for the delays, but the people supporting their forum aren't even employees and are just as eager to quell complaints as provide any useful answers. :-(

It's been 2 weeks since the 1.4x BIOS fiasco and there has been nothing since. That really isn't acceptable. The AGESA code we are running is bugged with the FMA issue, boots slow as hell, I can't post with my additional PCIe SATA card installed, and I can't run my 4 DIMMS above 2400 (Samsung B-Die). While I still think this is the best *quality* AM4 board available, MSI is doing it's user base a big disservice.

Boot times are in the low 20's ( seconds) for me , what are you seeing?

New member. Hi!

Building my first water-cooled rig with the MSO X370 Titanium with a Ryzen 1800 CPU in a Corsair Crystal x570 case. I am cooling the CPU, GPU and RAM with a top and a front Rad.

My question is, for those who have their loop built, how did you run it? With my case, the pump/reservoir will have to be to the right of the Mobo. The CPU is in the center of the Mobo with the RAM between the CPU and the reservoir. And the GPU is in the PCI slot just beneath both of them.

I am trying to go Pump>CPU>Rad1>RAM>GPU>Rad2. At least I think that should be the order. I can't seem to get it worked out without tubes crossing a bit. Is that a big deal? I think it will make the loop look cluttered, but IDK.

Any ideas or pictures of your loop on this Mobo that could help?

Oh well just got banned from the MSI forums for stating how slack MSI support for their top tier X370 Titanium is.........totally pathetic. They can't even get a bios out based on the new code and their response to me when I contacted them directly was this; "we are working on the new bios, it may take some time, be patient and keep checking MSI official site for new bios".....LOL pathetic, at this rate we won't see AGESA code of the 1.0.0.4a variant in a bios for a few months considering they are still stuck on and still using AGESA 1.0.0.0 for the last 2 and a half months. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

It is generally counter productive to use 2 res like that unless you mean rads? It is recommended that you go res to pump ( to pump, to pump ) beyond that generally loop order should be determined by distance away (to the closest next)

My fault. I had a brain cloud and typed Res when I meant Rad. There is one reservoir/pump and two radiators. I apologize for the confusion.

From power on until the MSI logo - 34.5 seconds
From MSI logo to logon screen - 10.5 seconds


These have been pretty consistent since the 1.10 BIOS.

I got banned as well. They gave *me* **** about posting a link to the MSI FTP site for the 1.43 BIOS when they had never (up to that point) even explained the BIOS issue was due to AGESA code. When I complained they should be mad at MSI and not me, they banned me for being disrespectful. My ban expired, but I have no time for amateur crap like that. The AGESA issue should have been noted as a STICKY and not simply as a reply in a Tomahawk B350 thread!

I saw you trying to play nice with them, and biting your lip for a while, but I could see this coming from a mile away.

So yeah...I can only assume they are in fact compensated in some way by MSI and their MAIN goal is to quell any negative talk about their benefactors. It's a pathetic forum for one officially MSi branded but lacking in ANY real support from MSI.
