Well... I have decided to RMA the motherboard I can't keep the system stable at all without some serious dumbing down the system.
There is instability with RAM, cannot run system with a stress test or any game on default settings. Here is my current setup:
CPU: Phenom II X3 720 BE
Motherboard: MSI 790FX-GD70
Graphics Card: Radeon HD 5750
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB
Sound Card: MSI 790FX-GD70 On-Board
Power Supply: hec XPOWER780 780W
Case: Antec Three-Hundred
CPU cooling: Thermaltake TR2 R1
GPU cooling: Arctic Cooling (AX5750 1GBD5-PDHG)
OS: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit (7600 Build)
All components are brand new and motherboard heat was at maximum 61 Celsius during Prime95 testing. Replaced RAM with other RAM and exact same problems occur with replaced RAM. Tested CPU on another computer, and the CPU ran stable. I reinstalled the OS from a complete format and I still get the same instability. MY conclusion is the motherboard. Frequently, when the system crashes I would get the BIOS error:
A Hyper Transport sync flood error occured on last boot.
Press F1 to Resumenter Setup Menu, F11 to enter Boot Menu
And no... "Resumenter" is not a typo those are the actual words. I just hope MSI can reproduce the same errors that I am getting.
so what you need to do is firstly flash your bios to the 1.7 official if you havent already, the reason for this is because ive found it to be the most stable and also a lot more consistent where voltages are concerned, once you've done that disable cool & quite + Spread Spectrum, you should then set your ram to the correct voltage which should be around 1.6 - 1.65 for your ram i think, then set your ram divider so your ram is running @ 1600mhz, now leave everything else on auto and save and exit,
now do a fresh win 7 install, once installed and back in windows make sure that windows does not start installing the driver update for your graphics card, if it is stop it but if its not then just download and install the 9.12 driver only not the ccc aswell, (the file should be 47mb), the reason for this is because ive had nothing but issues with the ati ccc.
once you've installed the drivers and restarted go into the power options in control panel and switch it to performance and click save,
also you might want to go into windows update and tell it to hide the ati display driver update so it doesnt try to install it @ a later date as this can cause problems later down the line.
now hopefully you should be hypertransport error free.
