3.Moved my GPU down to the third PCIe lane (the other x16 one)

That solved my temperature problems. My CPU was idling in the 28 - 32C range so thats good. As far as not being able to increase my FSB....

1.Cleared the CMOS twice
2.Re-flashed the BIOS....

Computer won't POST

3.Turned off machine, pressed the clr CMOS button, still no POST
4.Turned off machine, took out the CMOS battery for 15 seconds still no POST
5.Reset the CMOS jumpers, still no POST
6.Tried moving the GPU around to all the different PCIe lanes and still dead
7.Debug LED displays a code of E0 which of course is not listed in the manual or on the MSI website so as of right now, my system is bricked!
Some more things to try.

1. Remove 1 stick of memory then try to boot.
2. Remove all usb plugs and try to boot.
3. Remove hd and all cd roms and Floppy if you Have, then try to boot.
4. Unplug power supply for 30 seconds plug back in and try to boot.
5. Remove video card and try to boot. (when you do this watch how far through the boot codes you get.
6. If you have another socket am2 am2+ cpu try those.
7. If none of that works make a list of the codes that you get past and see were it stops.

Let us know what happens

Thanks for the advice. Did some research on the web to try and find a POST code table. Came across this: AMI POST CODES Might help some others who are looking for Code definitions.

Also tried the AMIBOOT.ROM trick on the MSI website but it didn't seem to work. I think I'll try different memory configurations when I get home today and see if that works. Seems like E0 either deals with FDD booting or Memory problems. I have AM2+ chips but they won't fit in this board. If you try to put an old tip in here you'll end up with two bent pins which is never fun to straighten out again. I'm gunna try getting a list together of the different check points it gets through. ARRRGGGGHHH its so annoying!!! If I figure this out though I'll feel like a freakin genius. Otherwise I'll have to RMA it and wait for a whole new board.

My bad wasnt thinking about that.. lol. Ive read so many posts today about am2/am2+/am3 boards and forgot ours was am3 specific *the 1337*

Initialize the floppy controller in the super I/O. Some interrupt vectors are initialized. DMA controller is initialized. 8259 interrupt controller is initialized. L1 cache is enabled.
I would definitly try swapping memory and removing floppy/disk/cd drives(if you have) first after reading that over.

"8259 interrupt controller is initialized." If that is not working you got issues

Well crisis adverted. Took out a stick a RAM and it came right up. Apparently the thumb drive I used to flash the BIOS wasn't too reliable. It recovered itself and re-ran a flash off of my good ol' micro cruzer and I'm back up and running again. Time to go work on this OC!!!

ordering the board today,
I am going to use it with 955 BE and nvidia gtx 260..
Just wanted to know two things :

1. Is the voltage problem reported earlier in this thread true?

2. How good is gtx 260 (single) on this board against m4n82 deluxe ?

Well the first is just quoting the second. But it seems like they got a faulty board. Many of us on here are able to increase the voltage on this board, but that's not saying its not something to be concerned about. You run that risk with any board though.

Ok...I'm to get up to 3.6 at stock everything. Everything is set to Auto. Now when I try to go for 3.8 my computer starts to get touchy. I have the following settings

CPU Multi: 19
FSB: 200
CPU VDD: 1.4
CPU Voltage: 1.42
NB VDD: 1.3
NB Voltage: 1.35
DDR Voltage: 1.8 (rated for memory)

It'll boot into windows but its not at all stable. I'll get a BSOD restart 5 mins in. I'm hoping to get a 3.8 or 3.9 stable overclock. Any OC geniuses out there (lookin at you beefdog and cbr600 ) looking to give any advice for this board I'm open to suggestions.
