Can anyone offer and insight as to what may have caused the aforementioned issues? I really like the K7, but at this point I just want whatever freakin works!

I've tried clearing CMOS and reseating everything and I get the CPU LED lit and error code 01.

Are you sure that you've cleared the CMOS? I had to take out my battery for atleast 30 mins before the CMOS cleared.. The Dual BIOS thingy was an total mess to me (first time i've used a board with dual bios btw..)


+ Re-seat the memory to different slots.

Uhm... Oh! When you've taken out the battery, and unplugged your PSU --> Press and hold the power button on the motherboard for like 10 sec just to unload every ounce of charging!

Hopefully that will help you!

I really think the CMOS button on the Mobo isnt registering properly, and same goes for the CMOS pins.. i dunno if a firmware/bios update will even fix that!

I've tried all of those things except for different RAM slots. I'll try that again later today. Any idea why the CPU LED indicator would come on? The processor works just fine with the ROG board. I even tried to reseat the processor without any luck. I was about to RMA the CPU, but was glad to see that it still worked on another board.

This mobos seem to be dropping like flies to be honest.

Something is very wrong with them. Which is a shame, because i loved the Gaming 5 while it worked.

I had an 0x00 w/ CPU LED indicator thing on, and I found out that my PSU didn't even work with the board for some reason. I used another PSU I had on hand instead.

Maybe it's because I've had the board for a whole 24 hours but most of the issues I ran into could be solved by clearing the CMOS.

I usually pull out the CMOS Battery for an hour or so upon seeing Q-Code like 01, 0d and stuff. Works everytime.
post #786 of 2020
I've done quite a bit of stressing on this board (K7) and never ran into an issue that couldnt be fixed by pulling out the battery.
Hope (for AMD)

Anyways, now that the dust has settled on fiddling around with everything. While building the PC I ran into an issue where the power supply I purchased the EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G1 straight up did not work. My older CoolerMaster PSU did but it took me 3-4 hours of frustration to figure this out.

The PSU tester showed that the PSU worked. I think the issue was with the 8-pin connector.

Has anyone had any issues like this?

I'm just gonna return it. An extra $90 in my pocket. I'm surprised the D-Rank CoolerMaster PSU that I have works better.

Does the power savings options work while overclocking on the AX370-Gaming K7?

What memory works at 3200 speed with XMP?
