MSI Z87-G45
« on: 22-July-13, 00:41:39 »

Hi, Got a few issues with the MSI Z87-G45 (so far):

1) Wont boot with a Logitech G15 keyboard (searching for reason).
2) OS (Win 7 64 Home) wont recognise OCZ Vertex 2, listed in BIOS (known issue).
3) NIC refuses to run at 1000 mbps - connected to a Netgear GS605 v2 (searching for reason).
 
All with up to date drivers / BIOS.

i7-4770K, Corsair Vengeance DDR3.

Any suggestions welcome.
Cheers,
Steve.

Try clearing CMOS and see if it comes back, and check USB legacy settings

That OCZ SSD is not going to work. At this time, no known fix is possible. Another user has reported his keyboard is not compatible as well. That will take a UEFI/BIOS revision. A standard USB keyboard did work. Disable all Killer Management functions. MSI has a standalone driver without the bloat. Recommend to contact them;

Update:

1) G15 Keyboard now working ok after second BIOS re-flash, CMOS re-set.
2) No fix imminent, got a Samsung 840 Pro coming tomorrow (crosses fingers).
3) Logged with MSI support, on-going. Disabled the killer monitoring, no joy.

Good luck with that, it sucks that it is so buggy out of the box.

Having bought a Samsung 840 Pro am now back gaming  8-)).

Still have issue with NIC not running at Gigabit, MSI support gave up on me, said to RMA it.  Asked for the standalone driver but ignored question.  Refuse to believe it's a board problem.  Tried CAT 6 cable, haven't tried a different switch yet as don't have access to another.  The killer software is a joke, keeps loosing settings.

Have you tried the most recent beta bios?

>>Beta BIOSes<<

Edit:

I also had to retire my G15 recently :(
Logitech isn't going to update the firmware and apparently has issues with some of the newer hardware. I was getting intermittent disconnections etc. (Could have just been the keyboard failing of course as well)

Not yet, looks like a thunder storm brewing here  :shocked_anim:, will give it a miss tonight.
G15's been ok for me so far, having flashed to 1.3.
