FAQin progress

Q: "How do I change the voltages in BIOS?"
A: Use the + and - keys(on the number pad) or the page up and page down.

Q: "Can I use DDR2 with this MB?"
A: Unfortunately no. IIRC all AM3 MB's use DDR3 exclusively.

Q: "Why wont my RAM work at its rated specs?"
A: Each set is different, but anything over 1333 is an overclock for the IMC. Also most RAM manufactures give a range of voltages(ex. 1.5-1.7) make sure to try manually setting your voltage to the higher of the two. Another thing, you may have to bump the CPU-NB volts to 1.3 or so depending on your exact setup. (let us know what is going on and we will try to help!)

Q: "will my RAM fit?"
A: That will depend on your setup. The ram slots are quite close to the CPU but with most if not all HSF's as long as your Ram is less then 1.5" tall it will fit.(ask to be sure)

Q: "which SATA ports should I use for raid?"
A: You will want to use the black ports as they are going to give you more speed.

Resident Guru's:

RAID or SSD: mduclow
RAM speeds and timmings: Mastiffman



All you owners out there let’s discuss!

CPU highest stable overclock - All AM3 CPU's
Highest stable NB speed
Highest stable HT Link speed
Memory Speeds and Timings
Voltages
Temps
and anything else you can think of!

I know MSI have been slated but I really think they have got their act together with this board and have produced one of the best AM3 boards on the market! If you still don't believe me check out the ratings other owners have given this board in the member roster.

If your a member stick this in your sig!

One of the best AMD boards I've worked with
post #5 of 9641
I love my GD70. I got my 955 clocked at 3.8 at 1.42 volts with Vdrop at 1.4 and I'm 100% stable at that. I can boot into windows at 4.0-4.1 have not tried higher but have not got stable at 4.0 yet Great board so far. Lets start a thread for it see if anyone is getting 4.0 stable and there settings and all.

I have one and so far I have been lovin it, but its not running now getting new ram for it so hopefully some 6GB G.Skill 2000 ram will up my performance
