Ah, sorry to hear about your board eclipseaudio4, it was a great run while it lasted. Hope your Crosshair IV grants all your overclocking wishes and can do more for you than this board did. Thanks for all your hard work in maintaining this thread and don't forget to stop by every now and then!

I will be in and out for sure. As for the CH4 OMG it is a overclockers wet dream! I must say I think it is a breakthrough board. Between the Lucid Hydra LT24102 Module and the iROG (overclocking on the fly with any smart phone or a notebook) this is going to be fun!
Just a few teasers for you and me

Kind of makes me wonder if the Engineers for the hydra chip actually have people developing the SLi hacks for this chip to enable SLI capablities or is it an entirely different BEAST?

Hello first post , I'm having a problem with my build, so I got my cpu a week ago (I'll put all my items at the end of my post so I can try and explain my problem) so I find out that to use a c3 stepping cpu I needed a bios upgrade so I went and bought a c2 stepping cpu and what do you know I get the same result, no video, it produces 4 short beeps and it shows error 30 on post led, mmm so i swapped pcie slots nothing, used 2 different video cards nothing, left only 1 stick of ram in slot closest to cpu nothing same result with both cpus, reset bios, unplugged hdd, dvd/cd players same thing I unplug power to cpu and get FF. What could it be, and does anyone know what error 30 means, I looked it up in manual and it's not in it, tried google but you can't really search number 30 as it brings up so much random stuff, oh and this is the first time I'm powering it, just finished building it and the mobo was used so I'm inclined on that being the problem hopefully not

so yeah what could it be? everything is brand new except mobo, but it acts as though it works :confused2:

this may be a dumb question but did you go into bios and set it to fail safe settings?

so yeah what could it be? everything is brand new except mobo, but it acts as though it works :confused2:
According to when I bought my mobo (which was recent).. the bios that came with the Mobo already supports C3(i slapped in my 965 C3 & it worked lol).. so I never needed a C2 CPU(or any bios update)..... I would now only needed to update my bios if I were going for a 6 core cpu or having instability issues.

Now you did not mention - What bios does your board have.. since you speculated needing a bios update.. needing to buy a c2 cpu etc.. sorry if it sounded rough.. I just want to know how do you know that if you never managed to boot?

But here is a reality according to your trouble shooting - yes it seems it is a bad board you got there - you tested 2 different graphic cards(you can only use the top slot as main display.. so it doesn't matter switching pci slots.. the top one is the only one that will actually work as main display)... & you as well tested 2 different CPU's.. I'd imagine rams on different slots as well.. all that pretty much confirms its a bad mobo

Now I have no clue about your PSU - never read anything about it.... but you can push a bigger step on trouble shooting your hardware.... is there anyway you can test on another computer(or mobo) using... your hardware in it including the PSU.. to see if your entire hardware works <- that will insure if everything else is working good or not besides the MSI board - that is just to find out if anything else is bad.

So before deciding on getting a new mobo.. please test your hardware on another friends computer.. if that is possible... if not well spend on a new mobo then instead of used.

also, if you have a fry's near you, you could go get a cheap $60 am3 mobo and test everything and then just take it back for full refund. i know its kinda messed up cause someone will end up buying the open box items that were just put through hell (at least thats what happens when i do it), but its an easy way to pinpoint a bad part if you dont have any other way to figure it out.
