Hi Rewind,

Sorry for the late response. If you can, measure the space from one mount location (bolt hole) to the other. It will probably come out to something like 80-100mm (3.1-3.9 in.). I need to know the distance between mount holes to be sure I get the correct length block.

Also, I played around a bit to see if the NB would be ok with less NB core volts, and I've been able to shave off about 3-4c. The NB core volts definitely affect the NB core temps. CPU-NB doesn't affect the NB core temps, it seems, at all, only the CPU temps.

If someone wants to be proactive, then by all means go ahead. it will be interesting to see the difference on someone else's system... Just make sure to take before and After screenies as I did!

HERE is the link to download the 1.84beta BIOS.

Just click on the "Free Download" button.
I'll try! I will OCCT Linpack my rig with 1.7, and same after 1.84b, and post screens of hardware monitor... I'll need a minute to do so...

EDIT: I think there's something wrong with my mobos hardware monitors. Since I got this board, the only temp sensors that work are CPU, GPU and HDDs. I don't get PSU info or other mobo related temps... Anyone have any insight into that? Am I just missing a driver?

That's correct Marc!

The NB Chipset temp sensors measure the temps of the NB Chipset on the motherboard, therefore if one raises the NB Chipset volts it will thus raise the NB temp senors readings (Which is on the motherboard) and won't affect the CPU's Temps and vise versa.

As a side note, I'm not sure but it seems that rasing the CPU-NB volts will not only affect CPU ambients and CPU Core temps but the motherboard temp sensor shows an increase as well!

That sounds sweet, I can't wait to see the difference. Make sure that you take note of the setting on the BIOS 1.7 while testing and set 1.84b BIOS settings the same.

I don't even use HWmonitor. I think that a good part of are using Lavalys Everest Ultimate 5.3being that it reports more accurate temps and more data all together.

Try that if you will, it may be more beneficial for you.

ill probably try 1.84b tonight when i get home
post #3447 of 9641
Hi Guys i guess another one joins the club then well anyways i've had the board for 2 weeks now and just recently something went wrong when applying new voltage settings, (which were safe settings too) and because of this the board refused to start. kept giving me the FF post code. still i got all cpu phase lights up, and here's the strange part. i cant seem to reset the cmos in any way at all. so far i've tried the easiest pressing the clear cmos button when power is off (holding 5 secs) but no results at all. i've also tried moving the jumper and the battery method, and still no good. read around a bit and it seems no one else have had this problem before so, any thoughts?
i've also sendt a message to msi but, as to be expected i recieved an answer telling me to use the clear cmos buttons (facepalm) so any help on this would be great.
