That's good news ghost!

Just installed a 5870 here side by side with my old 8800GTX as a PhysX/CUDA card.



Time to enjoy the system a little playing BFBC2

It doesnt' really matter. They are both the same. I've done both and M-Flash is easier. Plop the bios file right on the USB device and reboot into bios. Go to m-flash and start the flash. Boom it's done. No typing or anything. Reboot when it's finished and hit f1 to enter bios and redo your settings. I like it. TO each their own though. Definitelty.

Hey what Ram is that in there? Kingston hyper's!? Is that the Cas8 1600 4gb kit?

Yes Mastiffman, same kit as before (HyperX cas8 1600MHz).

Maybe I'll change it to Patriot Sector 5, but it's running fine here

check out page 350, Mduclow found a german site that sells a waterblock for this board. Its the only one i have seem so far but seems expensive. Probably not worth it.

just make sure you enter all the recommended voltage and memory timings manually in the bios and you shouldnt have any problems running at 1600mhz.

and to your question, no just downgrade the ram to 1333mhz.

Whatever makes you happy man, but M flash is about safe as swapping bio's in windows from what I've heard. There's a whole thread on the msi forums about how Mflash bricked my motherboard.

That doesn't surprise me at all. When I first even just changed the TIM on the northbridge, I had a heart attack. I dropped from like 65 C idle to 48 C idle.

MSI for all the design they put in these GD boards, really could not have picked worse TIM or mounting.
