    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master won't power on - (temporary) solution

    I've got a 3900XT and have been thinking of upgrading to a 5900X. Would you say that it's worth it? Very interesting. Thanks for the post. How are most of you guys updating your BIOS? Also, I'm a little confused when you say Q-Flash leaves the board in a weird state (so are they saying not...

    Are the BIOSes the same for Rev. 1.0 MBs and Rev. 1.1/1.2 boards?

    X570 Crosshair VIII Dark Hero

    Apart from the passive cooling, I saw this mentioned on the product page "14+2 TI power stages rated for 90A". Correct me if I am wrong, but I think the previous C8H power stages are rated for 60A?

    Any info on new AMD chipset motherboards? X670?

    Is there going to definitely be X670 MBs released as the B550s only just came out recently. I thought I read on another forum that they won't be releasing X670 MBs this time around due to their not being many features they can add, plus, the next CPU release likely to need a new socket AM5. Is...

    Does the 570 chipset fan make noise?

    Do you have a photo that you could show us? If possible, I wouldn't mind seeing how it looks.

    Does the 570 chipset fan make noise?

    If anyone sends and email to a MB manufacturer, I'd like to know their response.

    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master won't power on - (temporary) solution

    Thanks. That sounds easy enough. Edit : When flashing the backup BIOS, do you also have to be updating the primary one at the same time? For example, if you're already running the latest BIOS, can you still go into Qflash and update/backup the secondary BIOS to the current one? I'd check...

    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master won't power on - (temporary) solution

    I doubt only those USB items you have connected are the issue. You should be able to use a bunch of your ports without issue. I also don't think it's the Display Port cable. That sounds a bit silly to me, but I guess I could be wrong. How do you update the second BIOS to the same one? I...

    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master won't power on - (temporary) solution

    Hi, thanks for the reply. I actually use sleep quite a bit on my current Intel system, so it has a problem with sleep (that won't be a good thing for me)? Is sleep or hibernate less problematic? Also, does it matter what CPU you have in the MB for the sleep issues?

    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master won't power on - (temporary) solution

    Hi guys, I haven't posted here at HardForum is quite a while, but am happy to have gotten back into computers the past year or so with my first ever AMD builds. Prior to that, the past 12 or so years, I've always used Intel. I have the Gigabyte Aorus Master X570 Rev. 1.0. I had a 3900X, but I...

    what are you looking forward to the most with Ivy Bridge?

    If you're using extreme cooling and keeping them well under sub zero they are overclocking monsters from what I've read. I read today 1.35V-1.37V to hit 4.9-5.0Ghz, but that voltage may be too much on 22nm (may cause degradation running that 24/7 on 22nm) and it also runs hot. 4.5-4.8Ghz...

    what are you looking forward to the most with Ivy Bridge?

    From the extreme benchers that already have it I've read that they are saying it won't be a better overclocker than Sandy Bridge on AIr/Water. They are saying it runs hotter than Sandy Bridge and needs extreme cooling if you want to clock it. Overall it's a better clocker, but not on Air/Water...

    what are you looking forward to the most with Ivy Bridge?

    From what I've read so far it seems like Sandy Bridge might still be better if you're using Air or Water cooling. Not sure if the retail CPUs will be different the ES ones, but I saw a graph with an Ivy Bridge 3770K overclocked to 4.8Ghz and the temps were 97 degrees celsius where as the...

    Worth upgrading from i7-930 to 2600k??

    Can anyone offer me any more advice for running the power saving features on X58? I want to get it set up correctly. The rest of the info in is my previous post up the page. Should I have C1E Enabled or Disabled?

    Worth upgrading from i7-930 to 2600k??

    I think I have it worked out. It seems to work a bit differently on my Gigabyte board. btw My CPU is an Xeon W3520 (i7 920 equivalent). I had to set the CPU voltage to the 'Normal' option (instead of the manual 1.20 volts I had for my 4.0Ghz OC) and then use the 'Dynamic Vcore' option to put...
