Well...after two RMA's from MSI, I was 'hoping' to get an 890FXA-GD70 that actually would work and not greet me with that rude 'FF' BIOS code, but no luck.

I did notice the German/Dutch MSI forum has a lot more activity on it in regards to beta BIOS and fixes, so I download the latest version they had listed for the GD70.

It appears (from what is posted) that it fixes several issues relating to memory issues, CPU multiplier issues (like before), S3 issues and the dreaded M-Flash 'kill your board' problem.

I am going to update now and pray. If not, it's a loss on my end and shall bite the bullet and purchase one of the following:

Asus Sabertooth 990FX - In stock @ NCIXUS for $211
Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 - In stock @ NCIXUS for $200
Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 - In stock @ NCIXUS for $260
MSI 990FXA-GD80 - In stock @ Newegg for $195

Hmm....which one to buy. MSI screwed me out this time around and a few years back ASUS screwed us AMD FX-7x owners out by not living up to their promise to support that expensive, yet nice, dual FX-7x CPU motherboard...the L1N64-SLI WS/B .

I guess it's Gigabyte time eh

Took me sometime to analyze the problem, rig keeps on crashing a couple of minutes after booting sometimes a minute after playing some games and the trouble was psu 12v was dropping down thats why it keeps on crashing just sharing this experience maybe some of you have the same problem and it might help you also.

Kind of a newbie question, but I'd like to increase the voltage on my CPU to 1.4-1.45 in order to get 4ghz out of the processor in my desc, but I can't seem to find the way to change any of the voltage controls to Manual in the BIOS. All of the entries are there and the manual says that these are used to adjust the voltages, but they are all stuck on [Auto] and won't let me adjust them? Am I going blind?

just highlight the voltage you want to adjust and press the + or - key on your numpad.

Thanks, I came across this on Youtube and I was like.... adurr.
How do you feel with your X6 on this Mobo, by the way? Some people say that they run into power problems when they try to OC a hex-core on this mobo. You feel safe and happy at 4ghz+?

My first board ran well for about 2 months, but I was trying to get folding stable at 4.3 and 1.5+v's and it crashed. Since I got my 2nd board in November, it has been folding like a champ at 4.2 100% load and never had a hiccup.

I think the ver. 1.1 boards had better contact with the vrm heatsink than the ver. 1.0 boards (if you have a 1.0 board you can reseat the VRM heatsink and ensure that they're all making solid contact, then check your Dr.Mos temps in bios).
