[Official] MSI 790FX-GD70 Owners Club - Page 808

post #8071 of 9641
Hello i new here - i have just bought GD70. Have vierd issue, that DVI have not signal but HDMI have. But anyway i have question.

Before i have cheap GB 790X-UD4 and i have no issues with Vdrop. Now, GD70 dropping CPU volage under load. Its normal? Can be tweaked to "rock steady" v core in all situations?

In BIOS i have 1.480 Vcore. CPU-Z show in iddle 1.480V, under load with LinX 1.464V and it seems stable. But with UD4 i have 1.472 all the time with no problems

I'm just curious is 2x4GB of RAM vs the 4x2GB I have now. Its up to ddr1440, 720Mhz, but at 8-8-8-24 across all 4 dimms. Not shabby but definatly not pro, lol.
Well it will be easier on your CPU's IMC when it only has to deal with 2 dimms, but you won't be getting any significant performance boost when switching to the 2x4GB dimms at 1600mhz with tighter timings.

If your monitor isn't receiving a DVI signal, but accepts HDMI, it might be a number of things. The DVI cable might be bad, the DVI ports could be bad also, or it might just be a driver issue. Try re-seating your GPU(don't forget to unplug or turn off the switch off for your PSU), uninstalling the drivers and installing them again, and if none of those work, try a different DVI cable.

It's normal for your CPU voltage to drop during normal operation and drop even more when being stressed. I set my cpu voltage at 1.44v in the BIOS, CPU-Z reads idle at 1.432v and it drops down to 1.424v during load.

Kokin: DVI issue isnt driver related, cause i had no signal to see BIOS too :-) GPU is ok, monitor too (tested on last MB). But its work for now with DVI, but i didnt made any change of setup etc... I saw some topics about that and its GD70 confirmed bug on some configurations with ATI cards.

Anyway with Vdrop i can live... So im now waiting for Geil EVO TWO 2000Mhz CL6-9-6 and i hope, that i show you all some magic :-D
post #8074 of 9641
I'm probably limiting my choice to asus MB too much, cause there the only big name I remember from years ago

likewise with antec and cosair as they seem most popular, but its all the reported DOAs and lasted 6-12 month types that worry me, most all items from all companies seem too have them

And I would never waste money on brand name clothes or shoes...I shave my own head

It is normal for boards without load line calibration. Also the true Vdroop is much smaller then software will lead you to think. IIRC mine was .018v of droop.

Oh I know it's normal, I was just providing my info to froxic, so (s)he knows that it's normal. I have a 0.016v difference between BIOS and load, at least if CPU-Z/Everest is accurate.

I have same vrop (0.016), but i dont care anymore. Tomorrom i will have GEIL evo two, so i have question. This ram has pretty high heatspreader and if i use slots 1 and 2 near CPU, this will colide with CPUFAN (Noctua). Can i use ram in slots 3 and 4? Now i have one noname module and it can work in slot 1 (recommended by MSI), but can be in all slots too, withnout any problems. Thanks for info

yeah, 3 and 4 will work fine. i use 3 and 4 only on mine due to heatsink clearance issues as well.

yeah I just wanted to put that out there not a dis on you or anything.

Also everest/cpu-z is not accurate at least not in my case.

Should be good either way. But make sure you don't use your no-name stick after getting your GEIL ones. You gotta either go for two sticks or four sticks, no odd-numbered amount or else you lose performance due to your RAM being stuck in single-channel mode instead of dual-channel.

No offense taken man, I very much respect you and I thought you were referring to me with your previous statement.
