You guys with the MEG can you test something for me please - Balanced power plan - put the system to sleep and see if it will wake after half an hour - I know it's an ask but need to know!
I have the MEG currently with a 1900X till 2950X becomes available.
Initially the 1900X would not down volt or down clock under windows balanced power plan - was stuck at 3800MHz and 1.4+ volts with no XFR working......MSI sent me beta bios 121 and that fixed the issue.
With both official bios available on MSI site the system would wake from sleep if woken within a few minutes of having been put to sleep.....if left for more than say 20 minutes it would try to wake, debug code would start cycling then stop at debug code 00 and the system would be frozen, both reset and power buttons on case and motherboard were non functional and only way out of the freeze was to turn off power at the wall socket. Beta bios 121 would not wake from sleep no matter what and would always freeze with debug code 00 and need a hard power off at the wall socket to get back up an running.
Also there is an issue with setting SOC voltage and having it apply when memory frequency is set above 2933MHz.
MSI have replicated the issues and say they are working on a fix....how long it will take who knows.
Also if anyone has a CRDOM drive attached vis SATA and they experience any weird PCIE lag or detection problems when opening file explorer and having it load up the drives or HWiNFO64 freezing at "detecting SCSI/SATA" when loading up sensors it may be due to the rom drive as there seems to be some sort of detection issue for some reason, your millage may vary with this one but there is definitely some issue going on on the detecting PCIE device level.
I even had Disk Manager hanging big time with "Connecting with virtual disk services" while trying to load up disk drives. With the cdrom drive disconnected no issue with opening up Disk Management. Once I managed to get drivers installed for the cdrom drive things became more stable but it was a PITA of a process.
