tsamolotoff Microcode is there, so it should support it (unlike all MSI boards). Obviously, no ways of checking it, apart from the fact that AMD already had Gaming 7 on one of the shows along with Matisse and Navi card.

Drake87 Does the 41A bios support the 3000 series?

I'm all back to normal now on either bios. Close call though....lol

I wasn't really memory oc'ing.....I mean, yea, my ram is oc'd, but those are timings I've been using for quite a while.

I'm not sure what happened...but yea, dual bios with a switch is a "must have" as far as I'm concerned.

Restart......fans seem to be running full blast....no post. (getting error code 48, not in manual, can't find it online)(it also acts like it does when changing DRAM settings, boots on/off three times)
Note: The settings for F41a were with my 3466 timings. All I changed before this issue was the multiplier...to 42(wanted to run LinX at 4.2).

I flip the bios switch to my F8 bios, posts. Flip the switch back to were the F41a bios is....run Q-Flash. Bios check error. I tried a couple of the other bios' on the usb drive....F2-F4-F431. Same error. I even downloaded the bios' from the Gigabyte site and tried those. No luck.

Flip the switch back to the F8 bios...boots fine.

Any ideas as to how to get at least F2 thru F8 back on there?

Hequaqua Well...good news....all back to normal.

F8 bios on both sides.

It appears that when it flashed back to F8 it changed my boot disk priorities(it was trying to boot from my Firecuda instead of the Evo 970).

Question is now....do I want to get a 3000 series and do I want to mess with the bios' that support them?

I've been pretty happy with this board. This is really the first serious issue I've had. I'm just thankful for dual bios. If this happened on a single bios board...well...who knows what might have happened. I had the Asus X470 Prime(BLK was wonky)...didn't care for it....sent it back and picked up this one.
