Radeon 280x on a P67A-GD55 MB
« on: 08-January-14, 05:21:20 »

Hello there.

I got my radeon 280x yesterday and went ahead and plugged it in my system running an Msi P67A-GD55(B3) board and a i5 2500k cpu. I could not get the system to POST no matter what . Tried it today in a friend's new system , the card worked fine.

So , by reading other threads in this forum (https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=175448.0) i believe my Bios does not support the card. I'm running version 1.19. the latest BIOS for sandybridge cpus.

However i'm a bit hesitant to upgrade to the latest beta bios as , if im not mistaken, these are designed for Ivybridge cpus ? Will i lose the ability to overclock my sandybridge cpu if i update the bios to be a able to use my graphics card?

Not sure what to do.

There is no way to run this latest generation card with an ME7 bios on that board. You need to update to the latest bios. Unfortunately the oc ability might be limited using a Sandy Bridge cpu with an ME8 bios.

Try the latest beta following the instructions: https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=164135.msg1267825#msg1267825

Ok so i upgraded to the latest beta bios and sure enough the system powered up normally. I was also able to retain my overclock of 4.3 ghz by setting the vcore manually , it would fail on auto. Everything seems good so far , i will continue checking for stability in the next few days and will report back.  :biggthumbsup:

My system runs pretty solid with the latest Beta bios, overclocks are stable and all but i do have one issue that i believe is related to the Bios.
Everytime my display turns off for power saving when the computer is idle it will either restart after a while or the screen wont turn back on if it doesnt. I have disabled all other power saving features from windows , link state power management , processor , hard disks shutting down and everything  but the result is the same. Also disabled C-states and C1E from the Bios itself.
If i set the monitor to never turn off the system idles just fine.
Any ideas?
