Everybody's honest opinion.( PC problems)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have two issues with my PC. The board won't perform the way most neo4 f owners here( unstable above stock) and the vid card won't stay seated the the PCIx slot and has artifacted at start up 5 times in the week and half I've had it. Bad board? I'm thinking of RMAing it. Do I take a chance and get the same board that may have the same OC issues Or do I tell them that I'm not happy with the board and get another brand? At this point I just want something that won't give me such headaches. Any recommendations on what would be a good choice for an alternate board? price is no longer an issue anymore. BTW , newwegg is where I got the NEO from.

When the card is incerted is it seating correctly?
Check to see if it's seating square... I've seen cases that support the MB a little to low in the case and the cards don't seat completly or square to the MB!

I'll do that then, Maybe I'll just wait awhile and find out why my neo won't OC when others in this forum have had success. seems some NEO 4 F owners have the same problem as me in the MSI community forums

edit; IF the tray sits to low, anyway to correct that? like ajusting the pci slot bracket?

Are the towers the screw in type? If so I've seen 4 different sizes and like I said, if they are to short the cards wont mount correctly
You might be able to increase the height a little with washers between the towers and case.

Oh... if that is corrected and that aspect is all well... have you tried reflashing the BIOS or updating it?
BIOS update/reflash no help... MB drivers updated not helping ... LDT/vcore/vdimm increases not help ... then I guess it's time to sell it off and get a different MB!

Yes, I tried all that, I can RMA with an %15 restock fee and get something else. I guess I need A mobo with good support, Hard Vcore values up to 1.7 ( none of that % crap) and no vcore( or little) fluctuation. MSI are know for awful fluctuation. Also would SLI be a good choice.lastly I never had promblems with the agp slot seating on this case.
