Good to know, thank you! I too love this cooler, I'm going to have to play around with it and see if I can get the same kind of temps using the exhaust method now.

I got the same problem, anything over 2400 wont even show bios post, just stays black. Im at 3.8 stable on air, 1.375vcore, and going for 4ghz, would it be suggested to get 1.4 bios to get 2600+ on nb and htt?

HTT should always be in the 1800 - 2000 range. There is no very little (if at all and most likely worse) performance outside of that range.

Just format a usb stick in fat or fat32. copy the bios file on the stick. Leave the stick connected, restart, hit del to go into bios, choose m-flash in the bios.
Choose bios update then choose your stick and select the file from the stick that you want to flash.
Then just let the flash prog do its thing and the pc will restart with the new bios.
It´s really very easy.
but remember that flashing the bios is always risky. You have to avoid powerdowns during the flash process or your bios chip will get corrupted.

Beta bios's

On the subject of beta bios's I flashed to 1.71 and 1.73 and had some major issues. If I left everything auto then my system would work fine but as soon as I OC'd at all it would error and tell me that a device needed to boot was not accessible. So I went back to 1.54 and have not had issues.

Agreed. Beta 1.71-1.73 are really buggy, even at stock. I get bad NB speeds with anything later than 1.54 beta. 1.5 is later than 1.54 beta according to MSI numbering system.
