I would suggest 1.G/1.16 since everyone seemed happy about that BIOS. I run it myself and is my favorite out of all the BIOS versions ever since I started with 1.4.
Thanks for the BIOS info. I have read that the 1H BIOS has bricked several boards.


Regarding your RAM, the voltage I was referring to was NOT the rated voltage of the RAM itself. The RAM manufacturers rated voltage is irrelevant.

The voltage I was referring to was the voltage of the integrated memory controller(IMC) on your CPU. AMD only rates the IMC for 1.65v. Exceeding that voltage can and will damage the IMC.

It would be in your best interest to get RAM that requires less voltage.

Ah then I understood you wrong, sorry about that.

When you say IMC, you're referring to the CPU-NB? I always thought the IMC was controlled through the CPU-NB (L3 cache + IMC) for AMD systems. If that's the case, I only run it at 1.26v for 2600mhz or 1.33v for 2800mhz. I could be wrong here, but that's my understanding ever since I joined OCN.

Need help from you fellow 790FX owners..I'm running this board along with 965 Phenom II BE. You can see my setup under my profile for references.

I adjusted my ram timings and my board became unstable and crashed. Yes of course I tired clearing cmos but my board won't post. No Beeps!

When the 4-Pin power connector is connected CPU phase LED's are all lit but 1. Northbridge is lit, 1 NOT lit, 2 lit, 3 lit, 4 lit
(No Debug LED)

When the 4-pin power connector isn't connected CPU phase LED's NB and 1 are Lit. Northbridge lit, 1 lit, 2 NOT lit, 3 NOT lit, 4 NOT lit
(Debug LED shows FF)

Memory LED's are both lit and HD is a solid RED LED.

I been only using one Stick of memory for testing. The monitor never turns on.

This is my 3rd RMA board and my Power Supply just came back from it's first RMA.Same 4GB Gskill Ripjaws and Processor.

What could be the problem here? Could it be that I just don't have display? but than why isn't my CPU going through phase 1?

I did as much research as I possible could without going crazy and came across nothing. Should i buy a new processor? 1090T maybe? or new Ram? I'll buy both if I need too..Really need help here!!

Very much appreciated for reading even if you can't help me.

*EDIT* I didn't change the CPU voltage so it was left at stock.. I did however OC the timings on the memory to 1066 since it was running at 1333

Go to MSI official site or use this http://us.msi.com/index.php?func=service and click on General Online RMA Request. You usually always get approved for this model board..They e-mail you the procedures.

STILL NEED HELP PLEASE!! ^^^^

Mind giving us the details regarding your voltages, clocks, and RAM timings? In stock and overclock, if you OCed.

Nice too see this thread is still going strong. I have had my GD70 for almost 2 years now with hardly any issues.
I have used the SLI hack on it to run several nvidia cards in SLI, had 3 different CPU's in it now.
Currently pushing my 1090T at 4.0ghz with 1.4375V. Anthing closer to 1.5V and the VRM's seem to fall on their knees. Hopefully my board will last a bit longer. I do hear the VRM's hissing when I run Intel Burn test. Scary but if it blows up, I wont cry.
