no joke he's a moron... i dont know if i want to OC... have to get it all working right firstOriginally Posted by Mega Man
the mobo could, that user not so much ....
@ candyman let me know if you have any questions
and 5ghz aint gonna happen let alone 5.5 i like my money... errr uh chipOriginally Posted by iinversion
Yup that mobo does 5.5GHz all dayyyy longggggggggg.
No but really you will like it. Can't get much better than that board.
It's worked for me a few times. In fact, one of the times it was when I bought a R9 290 reference card when they first came out, and I got no display, I was stumped, I updated the BIOS on my MSI Z77 MPOWER and it worked fine! So it might not fix your problem, but I would try it because it has worked for me in the past, more than once.Originally Posted by xKrNMBoYx
I don't know if a old BIOS will limit what kind of GPU you can use in a computer. I don't have cold hard facts so I won't say I'm sure about it though. Is this R9 290 new? Have you successfully tested it on another system? I would suggest trying to plug it in a different PCIE X16 slot. As long as both motherboard and gpu is in working condition it's probably a small mistake like not seating the GPU all the way or forgetting/not plugging in the 6/8 pin power to the GPU from the PSU. Those connectors may not be inserted all the way at the GPU or the PSU end. I was going to say maybe it's sending video through the IGP but I believe the CHVF-Z does not have an IGP.
Sounds good. It's usually good to have the latest BIOS update (although risks of something going wrong if done wrong or an accidental power outage/etc). My CHVF-Z was on BIOS 1503 or something like that when BIOS 2101 or something around there was the newest so I updated it. Hopefully Candyman315 can find a solution.Originally Posted by stickg1

i never did any OCing on the other board... it throttled at stock.. i'm glad it never caught fire i undervolted a tad just to keep it from doing that... had it running at 2.8Originally Posted by Agent Smith1984
Man, I hope you get it all going!!
I can't wait to see how the board works out for you....
Curious to see if it nets you any more overclock out of the thuban.
How far were you able to push it stable on your old board?
