post #1781 of 3081
I was trying to check my stability at 4.3ghz running prime 95, after about 5 min my computer just died, no power or anything, i pushed the power button, and my leds flicked on for about 1 milisecond and that was it, tried turning off and back on my psu... nothing, reset my power strip... nothing, I finaly unpluged my psu from the motherbord and pluged it back in and it fired back up followed by a poping noise that made my jump because it was so loud everything seems to be running fine now though... wonder what happened, could it have been with my overclock.... that has never hapened to me before

You undoubtedly blew a MOSFET. Common occurrence with MSI's AMD boards. Strange that it is still working though. I'd shut it off to prevent more catastrophic failure and pick up a new motherboard with an 8+2 power phase design.

no he did not blow a mosfet I think he just hit the termo overload on his PSU some out there have to be disconnected in order to reset and when the board is plugged in there is always power being pulled

If it stank,it was a mosfet.
i guessing not as the board still works

not bad on a H50 . did you lap it? and how long did you run prime for at that speed (or any other cpu test)? I am interested as the new 990 is a rebadged 890 and trying to decide if I want ether asus or msi and also some one told me that the new sabertooth only supports ddr3 1866 and the new crosshair V will support 2100 any one heard any more on the new boards as well?

Sorry to put two or three questions in there but I want to upgrade the board to the newer AM3+ just so I have the abilaty to upgrade to BD because no one has said that the 980A chipset will get the bios update. In fact it seems the 980A with AMD & SLI is the board that bios righting forgot lol (no updates for over a year!)
post #1789 of 3081
none of the nvidia boards will receive am3+ support
i shouldnt be bothered,my mobo doesnt even support x6 lol
there is a thread here somewhere with maybe 10 new am3+ mobo's and the RAM frequency support seemed to be in line with the vrm's in the board:the better boards with 8+2/1-+2 supporting higher frequencies due to needing OCcing to attain those speeds,supporting 2400mhz on a 3+1 mobo is foolish

well if you can post the link to the thread, and my board supports 8+1 power now but even with the 2000mhz ram which it can take and I have 1600 seems to be the only obtainable speed with overclocking the cpu and cpu/nb if I loosen the timings I mite get more speed but at that point whats the point lol I still don't understand why there has to be a multiplier why can't they make a board that everything is of its own dam clock so you can get the most out of everyone of the things (hope that made sense?)
