New Motherboard help :(:(:(

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So originally I had an ASUS M2N-E. I quickly found out that it was a terrible motherboard, and I picked up a Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 on friday. The new board is great, I'm no longer limited to a memory voltage of 1.95, which is good, plus I have the options for increasing my ht and chipset voltage The one thing I don't understand though is, I have NO memory options in my BIOS. On the ASUS board, I had a TON of options for memory (I only knew what about 4 of them did too haha), but this board doesn't have any whatsoever. All I want to do is change my memory timings to 4-4-4-10 like they were before I switched motherboards but I can't figure it out. Does anyone have a Gigabyte board that could walk me through this? Do I need a BIOS update maybe?

Cant help you with directions on those BIOS but I can tell you that the first thing you should do is update your bios to the latest, espically if you plan on OCing.

on my gigabyte board you hace to press ctrl and f1 i think . so when you enter the bios you do that and the screen kinda will refresh then you go into the M.I.T. section and there should be all the ram settings now.. my board is differeent but i think it will work the same

For memory options, enter bios <delete>, next hit <control & F1> at the same time, that should bring up memory timings in M.I.Tweaker

I've heard that sometimes you have to press a special combo of keys in the BIOS in order to bring up memory options on some motherboards. I'm not sure exactly what it is though, maybe someone else can point it out.

Or it's possible you may need to flash your BIOS if aren't running the newest/best version.

EDIT: I see the key combo has already been pointed out... that was fast.

Wonderful, I'll try that right now. Thank you for the quick replies! Oh and I was just running Orthos to test out my overclock and everest popped up telling me my motherboard was 247 degrees celsius!!! I'm going to go ahead and assume that the sensor is a little messed up? Or do motherboards get this hot...? Even after I stopped Orthos the motherboard hovered right around 244 degrees.

Worked like a charm. As soon as I hit ctrl+F1 an extra menu called advanced chipset features popped up, had things like dram configuration etc. Thanks a lot guys

Everest is either trying to read a basically nonexistent sensor; or it's being improperly read. Most people get a few odd readings like that from Everest or Speedfan, depending on the motherboard. It's usually normal. Just disregard it.

247 degrees C is 476.6 degrees Fahrenheit, by the way. @.@

Yeah I figured that something was out of whack. I'm pretty sure something would probably melt around that temperature hahaha
