Oh msi 890fxa-gd70

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So like the title says I have the MSI 890FXA-GD70 and this thing sucks horribly i think. If i change anything in my bios it doesnt want to boot up for instance disabling cool'n quiet i have to reset the cmos because i will get an FF code also either the board hates my RAM or my RAM hates my board because i have all sorts of bsods which are all linked to my ram. I cant even set my ram to the timing that it supposidly can run i in fact downed it from 1600 to 1333 to try and decrease blue screens or errors.(the ram is Crucial Ballistix 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

So what should i do with the board i ordered it form newegg on 3/17 so its almost been a month now so I think im about to run out of time on returning the board i really really wanted was the CHIV but it was always out of stock so just looking for some guidences or thoughts or sugguestions

The Crosshair IV Formula is back in stock at Newegg! Never hurts to try to exchange it while you can. Give them a call and ask. Make sure you look at the QVL on the ASUS site for ram. I didn't look to see if what you currently have would work or not. This Ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231321 works very well on a CHIV and is what I'm running with a MaxxMem II score of 11.06 GB/sec. That compares to memory costing twice the price.
