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
Memory: OCZ3BE1600C8LV4GK
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.
jedijosh, dont give up as all is not lost, basicly im pretty sure your hypertransport errors are driver related rather than moby,

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.

Have you been unlocking the 4th core,this can also give stability issues,AMD lock cores for a reason,they did'nt come up to spec,i know you are fed up with all your problems,but these things are sent to try us,lol!!
It's unfortunate to say, but you're probably right!

Wish I could push my Memory (Corsair CL9 Twin sumthing 1333MHz) to 7-7-7-20 or to 8-8-8-24 1600MHz.

I'm such a newbie when it comes to this haha, I don't get it further than 8-8-8-24 1T without having BSODs whenever the PC actually does something :X.

Anyone some suggestions? (Ooh, actual memory name: TW3X4G1333C9DHX)

The tighter the timings you use,the more voltage you will need for the sticks,give them a bit more voltage,and use some "ddr physical voltage"as well,this generaly helps.To get 1333 ram to run at 1600,you need to loosen timings,but theres no guarantee it will work,you will have to up your HTT/FSB to get anywhere near 1600.

Also,what are you running your CPU-NB frequency/voltage at,???

I wonder if you have noticed that...


I assume that most of you here use Windows 7 x64 / x32 - I use Win 7 x64 with the latest drivers from my graphic card manufacturer.

Could any of more experienced user explain to me why my GPU maximum usage is only 92%??? ... is it an issue of OS? I mean I have read somewhere that is common issue for Win 7 ... that its GUI mechanism "eats" 10 % of graphic card to improve performance of these "great" Aero and other Microsoft inventions.

Am I missing something here?
------------------------------------------
Oh! and ... I have updated my BIOS to 1.10 B5 - like (I think) moorhen noticed it made booting faster (well... I don't have any RAID arrays set so... for me it's barely noticable). I don't know how about stability and setting more voltage to gain it - haven't tested it yet.

It's another issue - I have an external Seagate USB drive 500 GB. When I plug it in system doesn't want to start at all!!! Black screen!
When I plug it in while the system works the disk is visible but... I have an access to only 1 partition (and I have 3 partitions there)

So, here is my problem - is it a new BIOS (the problem was also in 1.10B2 BIOS) or it is the system - I used this disk under WinXP Pro and it was working perfectly!!! (oh! I forgot to mention that I have plugged it to my laptop with WinXP and it sees all partitions

Any thoughts about that?

If you right click on "computer",select "manage",then select "disk management",look in there to see if your usb drive is listed,if so,you will have to make sure all partitions are active,and make the drive active.

Also,in the bios,make sure your usb drive is listed in the boot device section as one of the boot devices.Hope this helps.

OK! I've done like you said ... here is a screenshot with my disk management section:


the problem is that it says that only the last partition N: is active - 3 of them are primary partitions... not logical.
During POST my computer sees that there is USB Mass Storage Disk plugged in but when it starts to load up the system ... the only thing I see is black screen and nothing happens. I don't have this problem in WinXP ... so I am confused right now.

I use AHCI for my primary 1.5 TB disk - does it have anything to do with this? In boot section, in BIOS I can't see any of my drives. Only during POST there is AHCI menu with my main drive listed... but ... WTH? my external drive is an USB drive ! - sorry for messing up... just it's a mystery for me

Theres your problem,the two partitions on your usb drive are'nt active,they have'nt been asigned drive letters,you have the "n"partition active and has been asigned the drive letter N.

You need to right click on each partition and select "mark partition as active",and follow the prompts,once the drives are active and asigned drive letters you will be able to access them,without this,windows does'nt recognise the partitions.

As for your drives not being seen in the bios,if you go to "Advanced bios features",then to boot sequence,your bootable drives should be listed there.

Hello, I have a MSI 790FX-GD70 and I am trying to adjust the voltages and they are grayed out and can not change them.

I have the AMD Phenom II 965BE.

How do I change the voltages?
