Funny you mention this because the same thing started on my machine shortly after I finished my build. I hardly ever turn off my PC so that would explain why if something was wrong I wouldn't have noticed right away.

From everything I've looked up regarding it, it's likely a PSU issue. There have been random reports of people resolving it by simply using a new PSU cord, or clearing CMOS - neither of which worked for me.

My PSU is about 2 years old and I don't feel like replacing it right now. I only restart about 2x a month so it's not that big of a deal for me right now.

(Restarting does not produce the problem, only in the event where I actually shut down, and then try to power it on is the problem apparent. I've ruled out a power button wiring issue by trying to boot up from the power-on button directly on the mobo to no avail as well - which only lends weight to the likeliness of a PSU issue. Unplugging the PSU cord from the back of the case, waiting a minute, plugging it back in: results in a successful power up from either the mobo power-on button or the power button on the case)

I was trying to correlate the issue with other events, and if memory serves me, there were a few times during the week that I stumbled upon the problem where my power was interrupted. I don't have a UPS but I do use a surge protector. My best guess is that one of the power outages in my neighborhood could have fried my PSU to a minor degree.

I'd trouble shoot more, but I don't have a spare PSU and I don't have a PSU tester.

Well thanks to B!OHaZard sending me the new bios. I am up and running on my gf65 at a modest 4.5ghz. Temps are peaking at 56C as a high after 25mins. once i make sure this is stable, i will start trying to lower voltage to see how low she can go and how low i can get temps. Thanks for the help everyone...

So what is the easiest and safest way to update uefi with msi boards? Mostly owned asus boards in past and with those it has been ridicilously easy and safe with ez-flash. M-flash in this board seems to be pretty similar to that but i havent used before so is it safe to update with it? I dont want to brick my board specially now when im bit short on money and couldnt buy new one if something bad happens.

I know there is some usb flashing tool too and taked a look to it quikly few days ago but it just seemed awfully complicated LOL.

It's not necessarily 4.7 GHz (some need it already at 4.5 GHz), but the setting you're thinking of is most likely Internal PLL Overvoltage. It's required for high overclocks.

No, but it should fit the motherboard, the only question is if your RAM heatsinks are too tall.

Well, one of our members seems to have bricked a board (perhaps) while using M-Flash, but I've used M-Flash 10+ times with no problems. The MSI HQ tool works great too (it really isn't complicated, just read the guide they've made) and the users claim that it's far safer.

That member was me. I did use M-Flash, but I think the problem was that I used a partitioned usb stick and/or I did not set the bios back to stock before I flashed. In any case, I will be using the tool going forward, a little more effort is worth it to avoid any chance of a bricked board.

1. Your cooler isn't seated properly.
2. Use M-Flash.
