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.
