Sorry for the late reply, I forgot to look back in this thread.

I don't know what to say. You definitely need the CPU 4-pin plugged in to turn on everything, does your power supply have a CPU 8-pin you can try? If the debug LED doesn't turn on when you have the 4-pin plugged it, something could be wrong with your PSU. Do you happen to have any spare 400-500W PSUs to test on your system?

I doubt these will help do anything, but try out all the memory slots, if you haven't already and then try each stick. Also try taking out the CMOS battery for a few minutes and putting it back on.

thanks
Only if you plan on getting Bulldozer. If you're putting your current chip on the 990FX and not upgrading to Bulldozer, it's not beneficial unless you want the UEFI and being able to boot with 2TB or more hard drives.

Remember, 890FX=990FX except for the socket and BIOS=>UEFI.

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.
It's been a little while but I've always understood the IMC to be intertwined with the CPU-NB, but yet totally separate. From what I gather the CPU-NB is the actual lane between the CPU and the RAM. When you're changing the frequency, it's simply how many times per a given clock cycle it accesses said RAM. While it definitely does have an impact on performance and stability, the CPU-NB/L3 is not the actual controller.

IIRC, on the GD70, the voltage setting that I've found to really help with RAM stability was the CPU PHY voltage (IIRC). I believe it supplies more power to the IMC, providing a clearer signal and enhances stability. However, this voltage setting is only serious fine tuning. Like your rig is 14 hours prime stable, but not at 15. increasing this voltage allowed me to run my old 720 with my RAM @ 1600MHz 7-7-7-21-28-1T timings, NB @ 2600 (IIRC).
After messing with that PHY voltage, I was more than 36 hours stable (that's as far as I've tested.)

Interesting... but I'm still not sure about my RAM running at higher voltages. It's been this way for almost two years and I haven't seen any degrading at all aside from the fact that I fried my VRMs through overclocking the CPU.

My replacement board was still able to clock my 955 at my usual settings and when I switched to my 555 x2/B55 x4, I got better CPU clocks, but the RAM couldn't be stable at lower voltages until it was at around stock voltage.

hey guys i think i may have fried my board again.... however without fire.
so i left majority of the voltages on stock except the one for cpu; which i bumped upto 1.35 or 1.39 or so. it was at 19 multiplier and 205 and i was using prime to stress test. about 30 mins or so into the test the computer suddenly shut down. so i tried re-starting, took out the cmos battery, and tried one stick of ram at a time. the power button on the mb is on but when i press it some of the led lights come on for an instant but goes back out and nothing happens. do you guys recon it's the mobo again?

Hi guys,

I just wanted to stop by and say hi and to ask for your forgiveness. I had to remove this club's banner from my sig to make room for my new club banner . This is because I had no more room for the new banner in my sig and this is the club I partake in the least.

Hello every one, I'll make this as clear as I can since it's my first time asking questions about SSD's and RAID 0 setups.

And this is the problem, I have an MSI 790FX-GD70 motherboard and after teasing with two WD Caviar Black on Raid0 for a while I decided to give into the SSD trend to install windows from it and the games and other stuff on the raid array, so I bought a 60GB OCZ Vertex 2 (technology in Argentina is expensive and that's what I could find and afford atm)

The problem is that even when the SSD is performing as it should (a little slower than it's peak but very good...) my boot times are much higher than when I tested the SSD with the bios on AHCI.

Yes, I first installed windows on the SSD using the bios on AHCI just for fun and from the windows logo (post bios) to the desktop it would boot in just under 12 seconds which I thought was amazing.

Then I set the BIOS on Raid, pugged in the two HDD's and set up the definitive configuration I was going to use, booting from the SSD and using the raid for games and other stuff. To my surprise after the LOOOOONG start of the RAID ROM on the motherboard, my boot times (from the windows logo to the desktop) went up to 25 seconds!!

Things still load at the click of the mouse from the SSD but I'm wondering what is the difference that makes the RAID so slooooow to boot??

Any help will be welcomed!!

Martin.-

Oh I was forgetting something, the OCZ tool doesn't recognize my SSD when in RAID mode! Why????

I have also posted this in the Storage Thread on the forum but since I have this mobo I thought someone here would know better.

Help Please!!!

hey guys, just got some corsair dominator gt 2133mhz ram for my rig. What do you think would be a good setting for these sticks with a C2 955? i have tried booting with ram set to 1866mhz but dont know if i can go any higher? any ideas on timings etc?

I don't think you'll benefit much from a high clock vs tighter timings, since AMD systems prefer tighter timings.

If you can get anything 1600-1800mhz with 6-6-6-18-24-1T timings you'd probably be set. I doubt you can reach CAS5 timings, but if you can, then you'd be on top.

hey guys. i have this mobo and have an interesting observation maybe one of you can answer. running latest bios and everything and in amd overdrive the vin7 voltage reading is over 900000.00. that seems odly high lol. in cpuid hw monitor there is no vin7. so am i just getting a wrong made up reading in aod?

nevermind guys, msi tech told me to just ignore it as a fault reading.

Sad to see this thread ending as the board ages. I have found this to be a very good motherboard that still will do all I ask of it, But as time goes by we will all be upgrading our motherboards. So the question is how much longer before your next motherboard upgrade and why?
