This method is very easy to use with. I recommend it.

http://www.overclock.net/amd-bios/58...lash-tool.html

I use that flash-tool and it always works. Its much safer than using the MSI update in Windows. Pretty easy to follow. I recommend this to all MSI board users.

It simple, download the flash tool, get a usb stick and download the bios you want to flash. Then run the tool, after that copy the bios file onto the stick and restart the computer and flash. Follow onscreen and nothing else needed to be done. Its that simple!

Does anyone do burn-ins for bios anymore? We used to do that in the old days with the earlier versions of Pentiums and AMD's. Just wondering.

I can't today, but here is a copy of the instructions I sent Mastiffman in a pm a while ago.

I made one of my usb sticks bootable with the hp utility and flash from dos using ami's flashing utility. It's worked every time for me. It's easy to boot in dos. It's the same command string every time except for the bios file name. I have it written down in my manual and it works perfect.

http://rapidshare.com/files/27538248..._boot.rar.html

Uploaded HP utility and folder with files needed to make the usb stick bootable.

1. Run HPUSBFW.EXE
2. Create dos startup disk browse to folder included
3. Make sure the usb stays as FAT32
4. Once done you can add bios file and AFUD4281.EXE to the usb stick
5. At post use select boot device and select the usb drive
6. At the dos prompt you type:

AFUD4281.exe 'File Name' /p /b /n /c

File name ie A7577AMS.154

Here it is:

***********************************

Here is a guide for anyone that wants to flash their bios on an MSI 790FX GD70 using M-Flash inside the bios.

First thing you want to do is go to MSI's website and download the bios version you wish to flash to.

MSI 790FX-GD70 BIOS Page

Prepare a flash drive by formatting it as FAT32 or FAT, do not use NTFS.

Navigate to your downloaded bios version you wish to flash to, and locate the file, such as A7577AMS.170 (this is the actual file name for the bios version 1.7, depending on which version you are flashing, your file name may be slightly different)

Make sure you have nothing else on your flash drive, and add ONLY the file to the flash drive. Do not put the file in a folder, as it will not be able to be located on the flash drive when in M-Flash.

Once you have the file on your flash drive, plug it into a usb port and reboot the computer.

Enter the bios and make sure you are not overclocking your system. It is important to reset to stock setings. If you want to be sure you have stable settings allow your system to boot into your O/S and confirm stability.

Once you are certain you have stable stock settings, enter the bios and navigate to the M-Flash option.

Select M-Flash, and you will see an option for flashing the bios. Set that to 'bios update' and select the next option below to navigate to the usb drive (it will usually say something like 'USB 2.0', but you may need to 'scroll' to see it).

When you select the usb drive you should then see an option that says 'partition 0', select that and you should then see your file, such as 'A7577AMS.170' (or whichever file you saved to the flash drive).

When you select your file, it should give you an option to flash the bios, select this and it will start flashing the bios.

Make sure to do nothing during this process, but wait for it to do it's thing.

It will erase the bios, write the bios, erase the bootblock and write the bootblock, then it will reboot on it's own. Let it do this on it's own.

You have now successfully flashed your bios to the new version you want.

I have been under a lot of stress and may have taken some of it out on your guys. While this is not an excuse(because it is not acceptable) I hope you guys can understand that we all have bad weeks, and I am sorry!

I really like to think of this club as a family of sorts and hope that there are no hard feelings.
Well i was kind of quick to pass you off as half assing my problem so i apologize too...my mothers been in the hospital for the past three days with two surgery's to boot and that mixed with school and my job are quite overwhelming....did i even mention my rig

I think we were both really quick to misjudge each other Mastiff so i apologize if you saw me as a trouble starter when i got in here

I do feel a bit of a bond between us all so lets just think black and blue from now on

Alright i am large fft stable for over 15+ hours and here are some pics of my temps and clocking...i have yet to work my NB to 2.8Ghz but i think it will be possible...pretty sure my instability i blamed on both the CPU and NB was probably the CPU alone

This is the 15+ hour run and hasn't been stopped...that IS 1.60vcore and those temps are correct

I am pretty sure i can get this voltage lower by maybe a notch or two but the temps are fine ATM so il work my NB around first

From what i have heard you can expect a core or few to be out of sync on Prime 95 but this seems a bit much

So what do we do now?

I knew my CPU was special but is it really "MUMMY SAD IAM SPECHIAL!" ?

Edit: Just found a possible explanation for the "problem"

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/24...t-results-core

Quote:
You are working in Windows.
At any given time there are somewhere between 25 and 30 processes that the OS needs to function (each has a few threads). All these threads have to execute on the two CPU cores in you system. The processing time they require varies for each core. Hence one core completes more work than the other in a given time period. This is normal. The temperature variances are also normal between cores as some tasks put less strain on the CPU. Both cores are not completly identical (minor variances in heat output).
I have kept several apps running over the course of my prime 95 run/runs and i have been streaming HD 720P and above media from the PC which BTW reminds me of a review i read on our board that the GD70 uses a pretty fast ethernet setup but it was consuming ridiculous amounts of core usage with mundane transferring via lan

I belive that this may be what ACC would be used for.
You might try -2% to core 2 and see what happens.
