I posted my mini-guide. Try to do that on a very clean BIOS. Pull the CMOS Battery before you sleep later. So in the morning or before you go back to the system, it's surely is pretty drained of any thing. biggrin.gif

I tried again, this time keeping the battery out for 2h, reseating the RAM, the CPU even, going back to F3d. Still no luck.

2933/CL14 is the limit on this CPU it seems.

What bios version were you using? I'm still on F2 so far. Haven't found where in the bios to update it yet.
Windows 7 does not like USB 3.1, it doesn't have the drivers for it on the install disc/image. ps/2 should work though...
The gaming k7 doesn't have any USB 2.0 ports on the back, but it does have them on the motherboard headers. Maybe try using those?

There is a CMOS reset on the board,up in the top right corner. It is next to the onboard power switch. The board also has 2 bios' (bioses?) and will (or should) switch to the second bios if you are in dual bios mode (there is a set of two switches on the bottom of the board that allows for you to select which bios, and what mode- single or dual - you are in). I discovered how the dual bios worked last night when I tried to push the bclk on the board, and it wasn't havning it at the settings I chose. After rebooting (twice) it switched over to the other bios. I was able to then get back into my first (after clicking the clear cmos button), and change the settings back.

@mus1mus Thanks so much for the setup guide. I added +Rep.
So I have been sitting here waiting on an AM4 bracket for my AIO.
I need to test these components so I just ordered an air cooler to test with. I also sent back my DDR4 3600 ram for TridentZ 32GB 3200 CL14 which should be here on Tuesday.

I am sure. I am using one.

107.5 is the limit. You might not reach 3200 but it's better than 2933 I guess. thumb.gif

I have updated the tests results to 3.9GHz.

I was using stock F2 bios, not sure why PS/2 isn't working for you, my Filco worked fine.

You could try one of the other alternative methods on this article

Here is a better guide I used for installing Win7. USB 3.0 ports can be used using the method. thumb.gif

What do you think guys, should I stick to Win7 SP1 or just go for Win10?
I mean, I guess I know the answer but RX 480 does work better on Win 10 in DX12 smile.gif
