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.
I was going by this
http://www.overclock.net/amd-motherb...gabyte-ga.html

I have no idea what version bios it has, the bios chip says A7577 AMS140(1.40?) don't know if you can tell just from what it says on the chip. Yeah it sounds like a bad mobo though crap

will give that a try, you think bestbuy has them or compusa as there is no frys in my area. Gonna try getting a stick of DDR3 1066mhz RAM to try it out on said mobo if i buy it. thanks for advice guys, any more input from the gurus at OC ?

very doubtful you will find a motherboard at bestbuy, compusa should have some.

Hi all, This is my first post, I have been building computers a long time so I do have a lot of experience.

mauro125 have you tried your build outside the case? Could the problem be a short with the motherboard mount in the case? Is the ram seated all the way?

your right it could be a stand off in the wrong spot or no stand offs at all.

I just wanted to share my experience w/two things I seen posted up there a few post's ago.

I am able to run my GD70 w/the only PCIe GPU in the slot one up from the bottom slot and I have been running my mobo w/out a case on the bench w/no standoffs for ground. will that cause a problem for stability and being able to reach timings of desired levels?

N2 you will be fine without stand offs. Remember my 790 was on my acrylic tech bench. So no grounding to psu other then through the wires, and that baby took 300W to the cpu for a little while I ran for a year with mine this way so I think your fine.

Hey guys, I'm looking at buying this ram soon and being that I'm a noob and all, I just wanted to ask you guys if this ram will work with the board (I have an MSI 890FXA-GD70.)

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16820231404

The stats on it are pretty wicked so I'm really excited about it, but I don't want to have something which isn't going to work. I don't see any reason why it shouldn't, but sometimes you see ram advertised as being compatible with something or built for a certain processer.

Your thoughts?
