Sorry for all the questions I just wanna make sure I get this right.
You can boot into o/s with a known good overclock set in the bios. Run a stress test, to confirm it, and you should be fine.

Sounds good. If that doesn't work should I flash back to the old BIOS I was on when everything was working? Someone told me that if nothing was wrong I shouldn't have flashed to the new BIOS. How would I go about flashing back to 1.60 from 1.70?

Don't worry, 1.7 official is a good bios.

But, to flash back you just do the same thing you just did, but with a different bios version, it doesn't matter if it's an older or newer one, it's all the same to the board.

I came across this deal on Newegg:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813130223R
Has anyone used Newegg open box products before? How are they? How about the accessories?
About the layout of the board, can we still use that PCIe_x1 slot when using a dual slot graphics card in the first PCIe_x16 slot?
Thank you mates.

So do I just go into MSI Live Update and search for 1.6 and flash back?
I'm still gonna try to make things right with 1.7, but if all else fails I am going to flash back to 1.6.

I was just on the MSI Forums and a moderator asked me why I flashed if everything was fine.

Someone else also told me to slowly restore the clocks gradually to unlock the "hidden" memory stability. I guess the memory has to somehow adjust too???

There is a link on the OP for the bios page. They have all official bios's there.

Still waiting on some NB and ram OC's with the new c3's, but that is a good one for sure.

Don't worry about buying openbox...if its a dud newegg will take it back and AFAIK MSI can't know you bought it openbox at newegg so you still get a warranty based upon the date you enter at MSI's site as your "i bought this item on XX/XX/XXXX"

Thats a great price on the GD70 by the way....i actually purchased mine used from an OCN member around 3 or so months ago for 120$ shipped and unfortunately i either had a board failure or PSU problem that resulted in my board having to be RMA'd...i had not one problem threw the whole process nor did i have to get any kind of information from the guy i bought if from

Keep in mind though that there is a chance a few or all of the accessory's may be missing which IMO is still worth the price cut you are getting with that openbox deal...since you may only be missing that manual you can find online in a PDF or that crossfire bridge thats worth 5$ or less

Also don't be worried about missing accessory's keeping you from having the board sent in for RMA...when you RMA this board and i am guessing all MSI boards you don't even have to send it in it's retail box nor include anything such as cables/adapters/manuals etc

I'd definitely pick the board up at that price...honestly out of everything in my PC this is one item i have never looked at an been struck by "buyer's remorse"

I fully agree with Rewind. Open box at the egg is nothing to be afraid of. at worst you wont have some cables, heck I hated that they sent red IDE and SATA cables with this black and blue beauty. Also the manual is in the OP.

BTW Rewind:
How did you get that ES???? I am jealous
