Compatibility Issues
1-)Dual GPU problem. You need to flash your motherboard to latest bios to make your Dual GPU cards (such as 4870x2 GTX295 9800Gx2) work.
3-) You have to set CPU voltage and VTT to same value, so your system will be stable, and cpu-z will read the actual voltage you put in the bios.
1. I didn't set em the same. I left VTT on default but the CPUZ 1.56 read my cpu voltage the same as I set it (+0.28) i believe. But somehow, my PC often just goes blank and the temperature rose observing the LED monitor on the motherboard... just like that. I restarted and it goes normal again. Not always, but sometimes is disturbing too...

2. is it really unsafe to use it with Thuban? im considering an upgrade

thx

You can use it with thuban. Did you flashed the bios to latest one?

no I haven't. It's just that some people associated the flaming motherboard with Thuban usage. I'm afraid that my motherboard will go to heaven too..

and what about the blank screen? is it because vtt? I didn't set em. just left it the way it was...

thanx

flash your bios and set vtt same with you vcore and come back with the result. 99% of the time bios flash solves it.

Should this be linked to in the first post?

Also, specifications for the first post, in the style of the first post (I think it looks better without the colour).


MSI 890GXM-G65:

MSI Official Link
(Includes BIOS Updates, Drivers, Manuals and the Official Specification)


Shopping Links:

Newegg.com ($129.99)


BIOS Download Links:

- 890GXM-G65 BIOS Ver. 1.0
- 890GXM-G65 BIOS Ver. 1.1
- 890GXM-G65 BIOS Ver. 1.2
- 890GXM-G65 BIOS Ver. 1.6
- 890GXM-G65 BIOS Ver. 1.7


Drivers Download Links:

Direct Link to Latest Drivers


---------------------

I think that maybe, with two (I couldn't find a third?) motherboards being serviced by this thread, you might want to split it up with some kind of hidden bb tag? Maybe the
Spoiler
tag?

Edit: and is there any way to get people to go through the affiliate link to get to the newegg product? We really do need to advertise those more...
