K8T Neo-FIS2R (MS-6702)
« on: 24-October-08, 14:04:30 »

Hi,

I have a problem (I think ...) with my mobo MS-6702 (K8T Neo-FIS2R). I have seen in the forum some messages about the bios update, etc but I have to addmitt that I have not arrived to a clear conclusion.

I have found in the MSI web that this mobo has several version of the BIOS, all of them trying to solve some stuff with the cool'n'quiet feature and the Sempron CPU.

Adding more noise to the problem, I'm one of that kind of strange people that use GNU/Linux, and simple don't have a MsWindows to test. So, no corecenter, no windows utilities, etc.

In my mobo, using the BIOS version 2.2, I can boot with the cool'n'quiet enable, but the bios doesn't detect the speed of the fans (always 0rpm) and the system is unstable.

With the 7.1 version, BIOS see and show a correct (feasible value) but the system simple, doesn't boot. I'm using a kernel 2.6.26 (Debian Lenny).

The situation here is that the Linux people says that the BIOS is buggy and the manufacturer says that they _only_ support MS. So, as always, the user lost ...

So, my questions are:
1) why this kind of mess of version numbers of the bios?
2) some one of you have been able to run cool'n'quiet in a Linux and which parameters?

Best regards,

Leo

It is true that there's a lot of confusion regarding this board/cpu and the right BIOS version.

do note that the 2.x bioses are often not the right ones to go with, onless you have a newer cpu (not Sempron).
What cpu is installed? (Clawhammer, Newcastle)?

Fall back to 1.9 bios. I think you'll be fine then.

Sorry, but with =<2.2 (1.9 also) I don't the values rpm of the fans. With 7.1 yes. By now, the best results that I have obtained have been with 7.1 and cool'n'quiet disabled. But, I would like cool'n'quiet ..
