All stock cooling...
It seems like what you just want to over clock your memory here, I don't know about previous advice but I have a similar memory, just with lower timings and here's what I changed from auto to achieve that.

HT Link speed: x12
fsb/dram ratio: 4:1
cpu-nb vdd voltage: 1.25
dram voltage: 1.65
DRAM Timing mode: depending on what side your memory is on but mine is DCT0 which is the farther one from the CPU
CL: 8
tRCD: 8
tRP: 8
tRAS:24
tRC: 32
set T2
Disable ddr3 memory profile
Disable bank interleaving
I also have spread spectrum disabled

Try that out and see what happens, watch your temps tho cause using stock with the 965 isn't a good thing.

Yeah, I flashed my BIOS to 1.A0 (1.10) and I apply these configurations and look this !

It just means that your stability test failed. It's like when a core/worker stops working in Prime95 because of a miscalculation. You can either increase voltages or use ACC to make that core run -2% or more.

SO after trying to figure out the CnQ issue for quite a while now, I have figured that its due to the 1.AA bios, which works fine for me otherwise. 1B1 does not have a CnQ issue, but I am finding it extremely difficult to keep my previous OC's. It seems to need a lot more volts to keep going....any ideas?

BTW CnQ does not work for me and thats the issue.

What are your settings exactly? I use the multi to OC.

I do to i dont use notheing but the multi to overclock funny thing i ust to be able to get at 4ghz. everything on auto but the cpu-nb and cpu voltage and i have my memory set to the right specs. im stable at 3.8ghz @ 1.4volts and nb at 2400mhz@ 1.4 volts but anything higher is a joke. I have the phenom II X6 1090t but i waiting for stable bios update it was unstable for me. Even with the new ver 1.10

HEY GUYS!

I finally got a response from MSI detailing the differences between versions of the Gd-70 between v1.0 and v1.1... Heres the quote from the FULL response I finally got ALMOST 2 months later.

Quote:
Board level component change, otherwise exactly the same.

Thanks Robert for that detailed description on the version differences, that really aided us in understanding this motherboard more. +rep n00b

It's doesn't work, I tryed your 2 solution, but it show me the same FATAL ERROR ! I don't understand..
When my RAM is at 1333 (default by motherboard), I past the test without error..
The error its my RAM ?

Alrighty, so for a stock everything I use these settings:

Cell Menu:

AMD CnQ: Disabled (this can be enabled, but you will need to set your power options in Windows to Power-Saving, in order to activate CnQ)
CPU FSB: 200
CPU Ratio: 16x
CPU Freq: 3200mhz
CPU-NB Ratio/Freq: 10x/2000mhz (if you have your RAM OCed to 1600, I recommend a minimum of 12x/2400mhz)
Unlock CPU Core/ACC/Auto OC Tech/Multistep OC/OC Dial Func: All Disabled
CPU Core Control: Auto (Unless you wanna turn off cores)
HT Link Speed: 2000mhz (10x Ratio)
PCI-E Freq: Leave at 100mhz

CPU VDD: 1.2375v
CPU-NB VDD: Auto or you can go a click or two higher
CPU Voltage: 1.257v
CPU-NB Voltage: Auto or you can go a click or two higher as well
CPU PLL Voltage: Auto or up to 2.55v
CPU DDR-PHY Voltage: Auto or increase a few clicks if you think your RAM needs more juice
DRAM: Voltage: Run rated voltage
DDR Vref Voltage: Auto
NB Voltage: Anywhere from 1.15-1.2v
NB PCI-E Voltage: 1.25V-1.3V (this is required for Crossfired GPUs, single cards can be set 1.15-1.2V)
NB-PCI-E I/O Voltage: 1.82v
HT Link Voltage: Auto
SB Voltage: Auto
Spread Sprectrum: Disabled

I'm not sure which model of RAM you might have, but if this is your RAM:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231276

I would suggest you go to Advance DRAM settings change the DRAM Timing Mode to [Both] and make your timings:

CAS Latency (CL): 7*
tRCD: 7*
tRP:7*
tRAS: 21*
tRC:28*

*Make sure you do all 5 for the second set of timings as well

RAM Timing: 1T (this is towards the bottom of the page)
Bank Interleaving: Disabled

These settings are for absolutely stock everything, aside from RAM. You should find more stable usage from these settings and see no more of those Transport Flood Sync errors. Hope everything goes well and if you need more help just come back.
Thanks for the help! We used the settings you provided (with my OC'er buddy modifying a couple numbers by 1 or 2 steps, but not too far from what you gave) and system seems stable, at least with 2 sticks of ram. For some reason though, the computer acts like its running slower than what its saying its speeds are. WoW runs like it's being weighed down with sandbags, Crysis has some MAJOR VSync issues (which didnt exist prior). I have all 4 sticks of 2gb 1333 ram in right now, though we removed one of the gpu's (there was a busted voltage cap on the thing... AND IT STILL WORKED!, though we're not gonna try it again, just trying to get a replacement) Any ideas why comp seems so much slower than it did when it wasn't stable but still running at stock speeds?

Also, I realized that the RAM i'm using is double sided ram, and from what I've read, this is generally a no-no with AMD chips. I need at least 8gb of ram to work in Autodesk Mudbox (renders in real-time to RAM), and was wondering if I should stick with my 4x2gb G.SKILL or switch to some 2x4gb single sided? The board can handle up to 16gb of ram, which I eventually want to upgrade to, so keeping that in mind, is it possible to find any 4gb sticks that will work? I am still unsure of how to tell if its single or double sided and have yet to find anything on newegg. I'm sorry for sounding so nub-like, but I'm learning as I'm going

Edit: Also, as far as I can tell the HTSF errors have disappeared, though due to the drastically reduced performance it is difficult to tell whether the problem has been fixed or just hasnt showed up again yet.
