Take a look at this. 1.5b4 improves overall functionality and especially helps with unlocking cores. Regardless of that it is a better bios.

Don't use m-flash either because it sucks. Flash with a usb drive in DOS like a man with the provided utility.

Great job MSI, keep it up
No one talks about bioses in this thread and I'm the only one who has ever even mentioned the beta bioses. I never get thanked for posting them either. You guys are no fun

2 QUESTIONS!

1.) I too am in the same boat and looking to buy this board with a 965, if it requires a bios update im screwed? As I will have no way of even booting the board up?

2.) Back to the Open Box subject I brought up, "IF" it does not come with its goodie bag, does it at least come with its boot disks? or I am totally fudged? (edit: Never mind I suppose Newegg no longer has the open boxed board)

It should still be able to post which is all you need to flash the bios.

"Unfortunately im running 1333mhz ram so im not much help.. But ... Ive pushed it as far as 1740 were it became unstable... Try adjusting your timings and upping your ram voltage to whats its rated at(if its lower) and maybe bump your NB up a bit.... See if that helps..... "

G.E. Nauticus,

I have OCZ3FXE20004GK It's 2x2gb of 2000MHz running at 8-8-8-30 @ 2.0-2.05v and I've lossened everything up and overvolted thing quite a bit. Over what everyone has suggested. I can't boot into OS past 1700Mhz no matter what! Doesn't matter the settings. And when I use the "Multistep Overclock" feature I can boot into windws but once the full OC kicks in about 30secs after entering Windows, it will freeze up and I have to Hard Shutdown...

I've seen reviews on the "EGG" from people whom say that they have this board and are running their Ram @ 2000Mhz and even 2100(ish) so I think that the board does it but the few that claim they can, Don't show proof and I have no way of asking to them to...

OCZ says that this Board will absolutely NOT run Ram at speed of 1850-2000Mhz. Beig that I purchased Ram to clock at speeds of 2000MHz I getting a little discouraged....

Quite a few people say that the Ram will run 2000MHz easy but I can't find anyone with the same hardware that has had success......

I believe that the problem is not the board but actually the CPU-NB as that is what conrtols the memory and is why many people are having issues.
The main thing is that the AM3 CPU's support 1333 DDR3 and you have to overclock the CPU-NB to get higher, as well as raise the CPU-NB voltage.
I have read reviews where 1333 with tight timings beats 1600 and 1800 with looser timings. So what you may want to do is run it at say 1600 and tighten the timmings and see if that gives a performance boost.
