Got it to 4.3GHZ at 1.288v in CPU-Z, 1.3v in BIOS, prime95 blend stable for roughly 11 hours. While extracting a zip file, I clicked a download link and the computer froze, no error codes nothing. Hasn't froze again as of yet, could it be just a freak accident?
Bye AMD :(

I've never used sound via HDMI on my board, but the Realtek chip on the board and the HDMI output are separate things. The HDMI uses AMD's driver. Either try updating both drivers or try to set your standard output in the Windows sound options.

The 1FA BIOS is NOT safe to use. I can't actually get into setup right now to flash out or downgrade my BIOS.

Edit: Ok, appears that the BIOS now doesn't like my keyboard. Plugged in a different one and now the BIOS seems fine. I wonder if this thing will boot to my primary OS though. Will update shortly.

Edit2: Everything seems to be in order. Here's what I did:
  1. Grabbed 1FA BIOS file from here. (It's an attachment to one of the posts)
  2. Grabbed MSI HQ USB Updater Utility from here.
  3. Installed Updater Utility, ran it.
  4. Created a bootable USB flash drive using the utility and the BIOS file from above.
  5. Rebooted, set BIOS back to default settings (i.e. cleared out OC).
  6. Rebooted, manually booted from USB drive (Press F11)
  7. Selected the second option from the menu presented. (Note: I skipped the Memtest because my memory is known good. You may want to do it for thoroughness' sake.)
  8. Waited for the confirmation to appear. Rebooted my rig, found the BIOS LED was slow flashing (meaning primary BIOS failed).
  9. Followed the instructions for unbricking my board in the OP.
  10. Rebooted, found my keyboard to be unresponsive. Tried a different keyboard. This worked. Got to the screen that tells you that your BIOS was reset (i.e. when you change memory configurations)
  11. Got into BIOS setup, reset my BIOS to defaults.

All in all, a right pain in the rear and I didn't even get some of the changes I was looking for, like "enhanced VDroop control". However, now that everything seems to be stable, I'll leave it for now.

Hi guys, first post here.

I just got an MSI P67A-GD53 B3 and I have a pair of HD 6870s in Crossfire mode. I'm thinking of getting an Asus Essence STX sound card, however the first pci-e slot (the only one available) crosses with the RAM slots at the end. The Asus Essence STX seems to be a fairly long card, so I'm just wondering whether it will fit or be blocked by the RAM slots?

Cheers.

Update: It fits. See this post.

I only eyeballed it with the door on but it looks like you have approx 6.5 inches of space between the first mem stick and the PCI-e backplate. Give or take. I know we have different boards but visually they appear to have the same layout for this.

I just PMd flopper who runs x2 AMD cards in Crossfire with the Asus Essence STX on the top pci-e slot. He confirmed that it fits fine and is not blocked by the RAM slots. Thanks flopper! I will post an update when my Asus Essence STX arrives.

flopper has a MSI-P67-GD55, but as Metaldude said above, all the MSI boards in the thread have the exact same layout.

I can say that my X-Fi Forte in the top PCI-E x1 slot easily clears the RAM slots. It passes the 2nd RAM slot with about 1 cm clearance (eyeballing like Metaldude). The Essence might be thicker, but if you add the RAM first, you won't have problems.
