Hey guys, I recently switched to the MSI provided BIOS since i was getting a bunch of blue screens but forgot to take not of the fan settings in BIOS. The fans are now louder than they used to be. Would anyone have a picture of the settings or know what they are? Thanks in advance
In the BIOS to to Hardware Monitor, select the fan header and set it to PWM. It doesn't detect the fan controller properly and runs it in DC mode. This is fixed in our custom BIOS. What was the issue you were having on the factory BIOS? BSOD's, CTD's, black screen crashes?
I'm currently working on 7D25vAE for this board. Expect it to be ready next week.
Ah, ok I'll try that out. I was getting blue screens, when I uploaded the minidumps to microsoft forum they said the dumps didn't have anything specific causing the blue screens and recommended updating bios, drivers, and running memtest86. I'll run this for now then try out the new BIOS, thanks.
Random BSOD's generally indicate a hardware issue. Memory is a likely candidate, memtest86 is a good place to start. Let me know what your results are. It's highly unlikely the random BSOD's are a BIOS issue, you probably have something else going on.
So I ran memtest86 for 8 passes and had 0 errors so I guess that most likely rules out a RAM issue. BSOD only happened like once every 3 weeks so too soon to tell if BIOS update did anything. I guess next thing would see if there's any driver issues correct?
If it's that sporadic it's going to be very hard to detect. Might post a screenshot with bluescreenview: https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/bluescreenview-x64.zip
It'll show the BSOD history and the error. Not as informative as analyzing the dump file, but it'll give us a better idea.
Random, vague and pretty rare. You might try this tool: https://hcidesign.com/memtest/
It's another type of memtest. Memtestx86 is an accuracy test, this is more of a stress test. It might reveal something that Memtest didn't pickup. With the free version you have to run multiple instances covering up to 2829MB. So with 32GB, I'd probably run like 8 instances of it. Let them cover at least 200% and see if it throws any errors. The Pro version is $5. With it you just enter the core count and it'll open a thread for each core and thoroughly saturate your RAM.
Ok well ran that test till each test was around 200-250%, 8 tests running simultaneously with no errors. Any other suggestions or should I just wait until another BSOD, maybe run driver verifier?
For now, I'd wait and see what the error is when/if it BSOD's again.
