MSI P67A-GD80/GD65/GD55/GD53 Owners Club/Discussion/Info Thread - Page 128

post #1271 of 1895
Hello,

I am curious if the problems with B3 revisions and high performance G.Skill ram still exist?

I am considering getting this ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231431 (since it's a good deal in a combo pack: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.644371), but I am afraid i will have problems with the P67A-GD65.

Reference to problems with g.skills and b3 revisions:http://www.overclock.net/intel-motherboards/917857-msi-p67a-gd80-gd65-gd55-gd53-68.html#post12964063

I have this set which works perfectly: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231430 This is a 4gb kit, whereas yours is 8gb. They have the same timings. Mine is 1.5v, yours is 1.6v. My board came with BIOS 1.9 and the XMP profile didn't set the timings correctly so i set them manually. Then later i updated the BIOS to the latest version 1.11, and XMP correctly set the timings. Many boards don't automatically detect the proper timings so it's not a big deal.

As long as I've had this board, I've had the undesired vcore increase at load that everyone else has. If I remember correctly, it was 0.044v increase at load compared to idle. This was problematic in that if I set my vcore at a stable value at idle it would be too high at load. Or if I accounted for the unintended increase and set my vcore at a value that after the increase was stable at full load it would be too low to be stable at idle and cause the 124 BSOD.

An interesting thing happened yesterday. I've been running at 4.7Ghz (102.2x46)@1.361v. My machine isn't in an idle state very often since I'm a folder, but at with an idle vcore below 1.361v I would get occasional BSOD's when the machine would idle between WU's. When that happened, it was usually at night or while I was out of the house. I would wake up or come home to see a BSOD and have no idea how much folding time had been lost. If you're aiming for maximum PPD, that kind of thing can be a problem. Previously it would overvolt to 1.405v at load which was too much, but that's how it had to be since 1.36v was needed to be stable at idle. And my temps were still on the high end of acceptable, so I just accepted it. So, yesterday I decided that my computer was taking too long to boot and I booted into the UEFI and disabled the full screen boot image. NOTHING ELSE was changed. Now, for whatever reason, it is only increasing to 1.366v at load (an increase of 0.005v). Now, I have no idea if this behavior can be reproduced on other boards or even if it will stick on my own board if I make other changes in the UEFI. I'm hesitant to perform other testing for fear that I won't be able to reproduce this behavior. But, I need to know so I will probably do a little probing. I'll try changing the vcore and see if I get the same results at other vcores. Also, I don't remember what BIOS version I'm running. I know it is one of the more recent betas but not the most recent one. After I check my version and test some other scenarios, I'll report back with more details.

Ya I couldn't reproduce it on 12b5 either I am curious what temps you get with your rasa kit full load. Also when I set my vcore to 1.38 in bios I idle at 1.376-1.384 and full load at 1.44 according to cpuz which is a lot more than the .044 everyone keeps saying.

Well..

Now it happend again. Was playing games and suddenly got a crash in to windows. Apparently the d: drive was gone again (where this game was installed on). I figured that ok, Í´ll just reboot and the drive should reappear again. Well, I rebooted but things didnt go as planned. For some reason the backup-bios was loaded..... And I had to change all settings again (my saved oc profiles were gone).
Finally, back in windows d: was back. Played another game (also installed on d:) and after like 2 hours d: dissapeared again (forgot to save to smile.gif
So now I´ve opened up my case and changed the sata-cabel and changed to another sata socket. Have to see if that helps.

If it indeed is a glitch in the connection, why did the backup-bios load???? Seems a bit wierd.
