Wow... ummmm... solved...

If you don't mind... I'm gonna take a moment to hang myself. (JKJK) xD
It's easy to forget sometimes that we are custom building here, so it requires a bit of understanding how different components work together.

You're learning, and getting it done! Good job, buddy!

Can someone help me out? I'd like to use the "wake on lan" feature of this board, but the option seems to be missing from my bios! Does anyone have this issue???

Below is a picture of what it supposed to look like but in my case, it's simply not there.

anyway we can turn off the LED on the board and have it only come on when there is something wrong?

Yea. It was kind of a wild goose chase for no reason, but I'm glad it turned out alright, and if anything... now I know how to flash my BIOS without Live Update, which the guys on the MSI forums told me to uninstall and never use again. Looks like I'm getting me a flash drive.

Off topic: Anyone ever use the Iron Key?

Anyhow, just passed a 6.5 hour stress test with flying colors. Also, while we were at it, we decided to lower the timings on the RAM and it works! Now, instead of 7-7-7-20, my timings are 6-6-6-18. Thanks for all the help, guys!

After you find your stable clock at 4Ghz or 4.1Ghz we will help you overclock your CPU-NB which right now you are running at a stock 2Ghz. You should be able to hit everything i have which is 4.1Ghz CPU speed, 2.8Ghz CPU-NB, CAS7@1600 on the Ram or you can keep CAS6@1333 which is nice too.

Sweet! Thanks! Since I am still learning everything, I guess I'll take this moment to ask. How is the CPU-NB going to effect the performance of the system? Where should I look to see the improvements?

And maybe... what exactly is the CPU-NB?

Edit:

Also, it seems we plugged all the front panel ports (USB, SATA, 3.5mm jacks) into the wrong spot. They aren't responding at all. Not to mention they take things a little rough... Got my headphone jack stuck in there and struggled to get it out. Anyone have pics of where on the mobo I plug those in?

The best thing to do about that is check your manuals for the motherboard, and the case. Get them online if you need to, and the case manual will let you know which plug is for what, and the motherboard manual will show you where to plug it in on the board.

Increasing the NB increases the memory bandwidth overall, and you will definitely notice a performance increase all around by increasing the NB speed. You do that exactly the same way you overclock your CPU. Increase the multiplier, increase the volts.

You will find that 2.6Ghz (13x) on the NB will usually want the NB volts @ about 1.2+, and the CPU-NB (4th option in the volts section, not the second one) usually likes to be 1.3+. This should be quite easy for you to have stable (2.6Ghz NB), and will provide a noticeable performance increase.

You need to update your bios then friend...report to the first page of this thread for clarification

Hello Marc

How much voltage would you suggest for 2.8Ghz? i am sure ATM i am sending more than need be to mine

Drop my timings from 6-6-6-24 to 6-6-6-18

Didn't know how far I could go before... I tried 5-5-5-18 and the system would not boot, lol

Sounds like you are going to need more voltage...i don't want to push my cheap ram so i think il just stick to 6-6-6-16 for the moment...
