Great rig! Holy crap its long!

experiencing "Inability" to boot at 13x nb multi? I booted 2800 (x14) on my first try with newest beta bios.

I think I will e-mail MSI on version differences. IF no one else has, I will pos response, maybe for front page posting as well.

I got a question folks. Last night I started to load CODWAW and my computer shut off. Pushing the power button only lights everything up for a fraction of a second then trips my PSU. I tried a different PSU and same problem. Is my board dead? Whadda ya think?

Get a usb thumb drive...format it to fat32, then copy the latest bios on there. restart and go into bios and then into bios update, choose the usb flash drive and then choose the file...then say i want to flash and ure done.

Great rig! Holy crap its long!

It's just over 25" long (25 3/8th's") But it's only about 19 7/8th's" High and 8 3/8th's " wide. That's the reason that it Looks so long. It is but it's exadorated by the height. But it's setup Very Nicely! Just having the Board Sideways with the wires coming out of the top BUT Covered By a Stylish, Toolless, Removable Top Grill, makes the interrior nice to work with. Especailly with the GFX Cards sitting verticle. It doesn't max out as high so far....

As far as the CPU-NB Multi, not cold booting above x13 for revision 1.0 boards, I'm not sure exactly what it is in the BIOS. It is the BIOS, mostly being that there is at least 1 BIOS version that allows Cold booting with the CPU-NB @ x14. It's BIOS 1.51b. But IIRC, the REvision 1.1 board doesn't have an issue with colb booting with the x14 multi... So It's yet to be seen what will come of it, completely...

I had that issue with an Asus 939 A8N32Sli-Deluxe and it was the board. Was the other PSU that you tried, that produced the same symptoms, lower in watts or Rail Amps?

My board hates cold booting with every bios i've tried(not that many, just 1.5(stock), 1.9, 1.10b1, 1.10b3, and 1.10b5). And its a 1.1 Revision board.

It just halts and the LCD poster says "2A" or "2C" and it'll reboot, and reboot. I have to actually turn it off, wait a few minutes, try again, and it'll finally turn on.

Thanks, but looking around the msi forums people were saying to stay away from m flash so i used "MSIHQ USB Bootable Tool and BIOS Helper" instead.

Lower in watts by 50, 600 vs 550, and almost identical rail watts

But when you let it sit, with the CPU-NB Multi still at x14, it will boot from being shut off?

I've used the M-Flash Plenty of times... I use M-Flash everytime in the BIOS. I only used Booting to the USB Device and typed the CMD a few times. Fine there as well!

Well Maybe it's PSU then... 600w is bad and 550w is just short of being enough... IDK, just brain storming here with ya!?
