Use the "+, -" on your number pad to adjust voltages. Aod vddc isn't the same as bios cpu vdd. Aod cpu VDDC = Cpu V in bios

i notice the 4 pci-e slots...wondering does anyone have experience using this for folding?

the thought of running 4 single slot cards on it... would make it Very..Very tempting for when i build a dedicated rig

okay so upping the vddc in aod is upping the main volts on cpu?

Yes and no. In the bios cpu vdd is for bigger changes in volts +0.0125. Cpu v goes only in small increments of +0.01v . I use cpu v to make small adjustments up or down from cpu vdd

Ok this is my first good computer and first self built one also. My Mobo is the MSI 790FX-GD70 and I've checked my BIOS because I've had this since beginning of May and I believe I'm still using 1.0 I have downloaded the 1.3 BIOS from the msi website, but I am unsure how to "flash" it. If someone could walk me through that I would much appreciate it.

At the moment my P-II 720 BE is clocked at 3.6 (234*15.5) with 1.475 volts and no other changes because I don't know what to change hehe. Ran it for 10 hours in prime 95 overnight and it was fine all is stable. http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=604376

Thanks!

Flashing bios, Since your gonna do it with the MSI 1.3 version easiest way is to use MSI live update. Set your CPU back to stock Clocks / Volts. Run live update go threw all the crap select update bios and it will basically walk you through everything.. and thats it.

Even though windows update is simple I do not advise updating bios in windows ever.


1) Put the bios file on a usb stick
2) Reboot the pc and got to bios m-flash
3) Set M-flash to update bios
3A) Save current bios on usb stick
4) Save and exit bios
5) When you reboot it flashes to the new bios
6) When you reboot again remove usb and power down
7) Clear cmos (switch off psu, wait a min, hold down clr cmos button for 10 seconds)
8) Power up pc again

I have with this board and my s939 Asus Board... and it's fine as long as you are running stable. but yes it's safer to do within BIOS.

I was curious if someone knows where I can get the beta BIOS 1.46 from? Should i just go back to MSI tech?

hey, how are people doing with overclocking the CPU-NB. I can run stable for over 12 hours in prime95 at 2800MHz...

I'm aiming for 3000MHz. I can boot up into windows but I get Blue screens like a frickin stobe light! LOL

Having a few problems with my OC and trying to figure out if its my board or CPU.

I have a GD70 and anytime I try to OC the FSB my PC will go into a reset loop. If I try to change my FSB from 200 to something higher in the BIOS it will either become very unstable or fall into a loop where it will constantly reset itself until it comes back on its own and tell you that your prior OC has failed. Those familiar with this board also know that it has a "Max FSB" function in the BIOS that will find a max FSB in about 10 -15 seconds after a reboot. When I try letting it find its own max it will simply fall into a reset cycle and will only recover if I clear the CMOS.

I'm able to change the FSB in windows but only by using the OC dial thats built into the board. If I try to change it in AOD nothing happens. My PC starts to think and apply other settings I use in AOD but my clock speed won't change and my NB speeds won't change. I can change any other setting in AOD with no problems.

Using the dial I moved the FSB little by little running a Custom Prime run (512K min, 1024K max) at each setting for about an hour testing for stability. Once I hit 210 Prime will start to fail at 640K - 512K and sometimes my PC will BSOD and reboot.

Leaving the FSB at 200 I started doing Prime custom runs (512Kmin 640Kmax) with just a multi OC of 3.6(200x18) with CPU volts at stock and NB volts at 1.2 and again my PC will BSOD after about 10mins and restart. I've also tried lowering the NB multiplier and increasing the FSB in the BIOS to try and even out to around 2000 but it will just fall into a reset loop when the FSB is over 205.

I don't think temps are a problem with my Sig cooling. I idle around 28 -30c and under 100% load it never gets over 42c.

All this troubleshooting as pointed me at either a bad NB on the motherboard or a bad IMC on the chip and I'm really hoping its just the motherboard. Any ideas or suggestions?
Here's something I posted in the 955 OC thread and figured I'd give it a try here and see if anyone can think of anything. Also, I've tried every BIOS from 1.1 - 1.3 with the same results. I'm leaning towards a bad MB and hoping that if I RMA it I won't have the same type of luck. I really like the layout of this board and it has the highest memory OC standard for any AM3 out there...

Plus I really like this club
