B350 Tomahawk BSOD after BIOS update
« on: 07-July-17, 15:56:54 »

Hello. I got a B350 Tomahawk. Things were stable until I tried BIOS 1.65.
Then, right after the system launch, I started to get instant BSOD like these:

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
 *** STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x0000000000000064, 0x000000000000000B, 0x0000000000000001, 0xFFFFF88000F59C8B)
 *** pci.sys - Address FFFFF88000E0CC8B base at FFFFF88000E00000, DateStamp 4a5bc117

 *** STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x0000000000000064, 0x000000000000000B, 0x0000000000000001, 0xFFFFF88000E0CC8B)
 *** pci.sys - Address FFFFF88000F59C8B base at FFFFF88000F4D000, DateStamp 4a5bc117

 *** STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x0000000000000064, 0x000000000000000B, 0x0000000000000001, 0xFFFFF88000F81C8B)
 *** pci.sys - Address FFFFF88000F81C8B base at FFFFF88000F75000, DateStamp 4a5bc117

The first two came when I tried RAM with 1.35v, its native timings 14-14-14-14-34.
Also the frequencies, for the first one it was 3200, the other one was 2933 or 2667.
(Since I got a pair of 3200 sticks, I tried to make them work faster than 2133).

The third BSOD came when I reset BIOS to default. Then I reset CMOS, same result.
So I tried BIOS 1.6, also with CMOS reset. Same result.

With my OS in safe mode, I got no BSOD. Could mean unsupported video card, but...

My specs:
- Mobo: B350 Tomahawk
- CPU: Ryzen 7 1700 (stock fan)
- GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670
- RAM: TridentZ CL14 3200 2x16GB
- PSU: ZM 700-LX
- OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Now I checked the same thing but with BIOS 1.71. Same BSOD.
So I changed my Gigabyte GTX 670 to older Asus GT 440. BSOD is gone.
So I would blame a faulty GPU, if only it failed consistently with all BIOS-es.
The point is why it worked with default one and not the updates...

Hey that actually seemed to work. Had one or two more BSODs, then I disabled this and they're gone. Thanks a lot :)

EDIT: Well, no. It was stable for 6 hours but BSOD-ed 10 minutes after I typed this. Still clueless...

OK the current situation is as follows. I resetted every setting to default.
I get almost regular BSODs in intervals ranging from 50 minutes to 2 hours.
It doesn't seem to matter if I enable or disable C'n'Q. I'll try again without GPU.

If it remains unstable I'll just return this motherboard.

I would flash back to an older BIOS and see if the BSoD's continue. 
You could even try that newest BETA BIOS 1.71 if you wanted.

I already am on 1.71 and swapped the GPU.
I wrote it before, but my post is greyed out.
Was it moderated or deleted? Is it visible to you?

Here's what I wrote:

But I wrote it just before another BSOD, since then they reappear often.
 I did not yet check BIOS 1.71 with that first card of mine, GTX 670.
Will swap back to it, if it fails I'll flash the old BIOS... Thank you.

First of all sorry for the huge font of the last post.
(Wrote in low-res safe mode, didn't see the size.)

The current situation on my PC is as follows:
 I did clean Win7 install on a wiped Samsung 840 Pro.
 Then I installed MSI drivers from the CD supplied.
 Then I installed latest GTX 670 drivers from nVidia.

 The outcomes:
 1) instant post-boot BSOD with BIOS 1.71
 2) instant post-boot BSOD with BIOS 1.65
 3) instant post-boot BSOD with BIOS 1.60
 4) with BIOS 1.50:
 - Game Boost works normally, core speed jumps from 3.0 to 3.4 GHz
 - X-AMP freezes the PC, can't even reach BIOS without a CMOS reset
 - Memory Try It at 3200-14-14-14-34 makes CPU-z show as follows:
 a) CPU clock alternates between 3.749-3.199GHz, then stops at 1.5 GHz
 b) memory tab shows default 1066 15-15-15-36 (in fact 2133 since Dual).


 So for me it's a choice between RAM support and GPU support.
 Two weeks of constant issues, I'm past the RMA deadline already.
 $100 is no big money, not my point. I just want to give msi a chance...
 Currently I'm waiting for the official BIOS - but very skeptical...

Yes, I have a same experience.

With BIOS version 1.5 is system stable and without BSOD.

Version 1.5:
+ stable
- memory speed only 2666, they have OC 3200.
- slow POST-boot

1.6 and above:
+ agesa 1.0.0.6a
+ memory speed 3200
+ fast POST-boot
- randomly BSOD -> DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL / fffff880`00e76d4b / PCI.SYS

I clear CMOS on regular basis, just to make sure. Never helped, also not this time.

and send a feedback to msi here:
>>How to contact MSI.<<

Did that. After some stability I also had a BSOD on the formerly stable 1.5.
That didn't happen until now, during the last two weeks.
Simply great. If this popped up a few days earlier I would just RMA.
I contacted MSI but I'm not sure if they will still accept that...

I have two days without BSOD because I installed Win10 instead of Win7. Bios beta version 1.71.
