990FXA-GD80 FX-8350 BIOS 11.13 CPU Problems
« on: 31-October-12, 18:56:57 »

All,

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

I had an AMD FX-8150 installed on my MSI 990FXA-GD80 and updated to the latest bios: 11.13. This was no problem.

Windows acted fine after reboot.

I do NOT Overclock the FX-8150 chip as I was not impressed with the performance potential of the FX-8150 when overclocked vs. stock settings. As such I left ALL BIOS settings at their stock settings with the exception of SATA MODE = AHCI.

However I do check stability of the stock settings with Prime95 and OCCT. Ran both for 60 minutes. And there were no issues.

I then reset bios to default status and then powered off my PC. Removed the AMD FX-8150 and installed an AMD FX-8350 (Vishera).

Powered on, clicked F1 to enter settings. restored defaults. Set SATA Mode = AHCI then saved and exited.

Windows booted just fine. However, ANY stress testing whether via: Prime95, OCCT or AMD overdrive fails with in 90 seconds.

The OS does NOT BSOD, however Prime95 recognized an error and stops as does OCCT and/or AMD overdrive. Temps do NOT get higher then 40 degrees Celsius in this short period of time.

I am NOT altering ANY bios setting: No frequency changes, No voltage changes. ALL default settings are intact.

I did use the jumper to clear CMOS, got into the BIOS, restored to default, set SATA MODE = AHCI, saved and exited. Reset the date and time. Rebooted, re-attempted the 3 above mentioned stress test software suites and all threes reported errors and stopped.

Is anyone else experiencing similar issues with this board with BIOS 11.13 using an FX-8350?

I've ran MemTest on the memory and this passes successfully.

I have another MSI board: 990FXA-GD80V2. I have the old FX-8150 in it right now. I just did a fresh install of Win 7 Ultimate 64-Bit, installed ALL windows updates and I will now update to the latest BIOS for it via Live Update 5.

Then swap CPUs and report my results.

Any and all help you can give will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

There are still no beta bios's out yet with specific mention of Vishera but should be soon. The only thing I have seen is that the Vishera cpu's will boot with the exisiting bios versions and a new version is forthcoming.

Thanks for the quick response.

I guess I thought the BIOS 11.13 release on 2012-10-09 included the Vishera CPUs.

If it did not, then I will wait patiently for an update.

I will post more if and when I have an update.

Thanks for the links.

According to the URL:

http://event.msi.com/mb/2012/vishera/

The 990FXA-GD80 with BIOS: E7640AMS.BD0

Should be compatible with the AMD FX-8350 (Vishera).

This is the BIOS that I have described earlier as 11.13. (11=B, 13=D). If you download the .zip file contained here:

http://us.msi.com/product/mb/990FXA-GD80.html#/?div=BIOS

(7640vBD.ZIP)

The BIOS file contained is:

E7640AMS.BD0

I appreciate the link to Beta versions of the BIOS for the 990FXA-GD80. I will download the latest:

E7640AMS.BD4

Install it and report my findings.

Thank you.

It could also be a memory vs imc issue that needs to be addressed via future bios update. If none of this helps, get a componoent list together and send it off to MSI.

Did you do a full cmos clear after installing the new cpu? >>Clear CMOS Guide<<

Thank you for your reply.

I did clear the CMOS using the jumper via procedure one on your link.

The BIOS currently installed on both boards is:

E7640AMS.BD0

I did a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-BIT with the 990FXA-GD80V2 and the FX-8150. I installed the Realtec LAN drivers and then installed ALL Windows Updates.

I opened MANAGE->Device Manager

The only item with an "!" next to it was the USB 3.0 device. I downloaded and installed this driver from the US MSI website. Checked MANAGE->Device Manager. All hardware is installed.

I then powered off the PC. Removed the power chord. Removed the FX-8150. Installed the FX-8350. I then used the jumper to clear CMOS. Restored power and powered on.

I entered the BIOS. Restored Default Settings. Set the Date and Time to be accurate. Set SATA MODE = AHCI, then saved and exited.

When Windows came up, it recognized new hardware, installed the FX-8350 cores and required a reboot.

After reboot I again checked Device Manager, under Processors, 8 cores of FX-8350 show up. No "!" next to any device.

I then closed device manager and attempted to Run OCCT. Within 90 seconds it fails due to error and shuts down.

I then rebooted. Ran MemTest, this passed.

I then rebooted. Windows loaded successfully I attempted to Run Prime95. Within 60 seconds errors are reported and it stops running test on most of the cores.

I have not yet tried the Beta BIOS. I will do this tonight.

I have not tried a fresh install of Windows on the FX-8350. I will do this tonight.

I have started a support ticket with MSI. They have asked me to reply with the following:

Which version of the driver disk do I have?
Which version of the graphics driver is installed?
Can I provided to them a screenshot of the error(s)?
Have I attempted fresh install of OS with FX-8350 installed?

I will reply to these and report my results to MSI and here at the MSI form.

I appreciate everyone's input.
