I heard it through the grapevine that the 975 won't see the light of day. Especially, since Thuban is right around the production corner.

The BIOS version was 1.63b that enable a more firendly environment for 1600Mhz Ram. The previous BIOS could go Way past 1600, I have proof of that. But 1600 was easier to hit with 1.63b and later...

I know, I remember just a few weeks toa month ago having to clear CMOS and trying to boto into 3GHz CPUNB and having to change it to 2800. But now it changed to 2600 for some reason. I'm not positive but I think that I may have been on 1.91 or 1.92 being able to boot with 2800....

I can almost guarantee that it's only a BIOS setting.

Just like MSI changing the ability to flip fro the very top of any given page in the BIOS to very bottom just by simply hit up, once. When they did that it disabled the ability to even view the 12v+ Rail in the Hardware monitor... before you could just hit the down arrow when sitting on the System Fan 4 speed setting and it pop the screen down just enough to have the 12v+ Rail reading come into the screen at the very bottom. We should get a list together of everything that everyone has noticed a difference in with theBIOS revisions and send it over to MSI... Has anyone received any emails from MSI Tech memebers that might be able to impliment this for us?

Thats just the thing I do not cold boot my system runs 24/7 with the occasional OC tweek and even then I don't cold boot. Had you guys not brought this up I would have had no idea.

I'm running BIOS 1.4 and I run my RAM @ 1600, no issues.

You have certainly opened a can of worms for me,lol!!
I had noticed this a while ago when it got really cold here and I forgot to turn on my heat. I noticed with colder ambient temps I was getting the lockup.

I think it's a problem with this board to be quite honest.

That it is.



Sort of off topic but kind of pertains to this cold boot bug. On my 939 DFI CFX3200DR board it does the EXACT same thing except it's not temperature dependent. It does it at all sorts of temps.
Now the reason it does this is because DFI screwed up some of the printed traces going to the SB. So I'm wondering if temps are causing some sort of SB short.

Perhaps upping the SB voltage on our GD70's would recitfy this issue. I'll have to wait till it gets cold enough around here again and try it out.

Out of curiosity what are you guys running your SB at? Mine's at 1.25v.

PS: No comapny officially supports overclocking even if they make products to do so. I ran in to this issue with Thermaltake and their V1 cooler (which really sucks BTW). The thing cooled worse than my STOCK opteron cooler. When I alled their tech support they told me the exact same thing. When I told them that I wasn't overclocking and that at stock speeds it couldn't cool properly they were all like . So I RMA'd it and got my Xiggy DK.
