cool could you give me a link to the beta bios page? for my last msi ( the k9a2 platinum, "copper tower"), i had to search for beta bios in the german msi forum... getting through german again... id' rather pass on that

however, i'm planning on having a clean install soon, since i'm changing my 60gb ssd to a 120 gb, so i hope at least that will do.

An english page above with version 1.85 and the German forum below which has 1.86. You can use google translator I think to navigate through and register so you can download. None of the changes mentioned seem to specifically address xfire issues but there are lots of other fixs.

hey 890fxa-gd70 owners, i recently bought a 5970 and cannot for the life of me get it to work with this board. I've detailed the problem in it's own thread here.

I've tried everything I can think of to no avail. 1.6, 1.7, 1.8b3 bios's and catalyst control center 10.12, 10.10e, 10.8, and 10.4 no change. Everytime I get a freeze at the windows 7 welcome glowing orb screen. Thanks,
Phor the Win

can the 890fx run cards in slots 1, 4, and 7? In something like crossfire or just for folding?

Hi there!

I'm having problems with my g skill flare cl7. I can not manage to make it work at 7-8-7-24. When I use una stick, it POSTs normally, but when I installa the second one it refuses to POST.

Don't know what voltage to move, since there are a lot of options in setup.

i got some 7-8-7-24 ram that was for an intel build that i had similar problems with. i contacted mushkin about it and mushkinsean recommended i set the dram v to 1.65 and the cpu-nb ram to 1.3... worked for me til i picked up these dominators that are 8-8-8-24 for amd builds, and its much more stable. gl

Hey everyone,
I am new to overclock.net and just built my 2nd system with the 890fxa(I'll join the club). I plan on overclocking in the future to around 3.6-3.8 once I get better CPU cooling.
Check out my system, feel free to comment/criticize, as I have never overclocked and am still learning about it. I am currently running on stock settings other than:

-I changed the CPU VDD to 1.35v as it was running at 1.408v on auto

-Have started messing around with my memory a little bit. I have 2 sticks of 2GB Crucial Ballistix 1600 and right now its running at 1333mhz with timing set to 7-7-7-21-1T everything else is on auto. It is running at 1.5v although it is rated at 1.65v. It seems to be running stable.. I have been running memtest for about an hour no errors... computer would not boot with timings of 6-6-6-18.

Does this look alright?

Let me know what you think! Thanks
