    MSI's X570 Tomahawk May Become Go-To OC Board??

    My system seems OK and I customise the fan curves. I am in the latest (Beta 183 at time of writing) Seems unlikely for the age of the board, but might the battery be dead. I can't think of another reason for BIOS settings to be forgotton. Alternatively, the curve is not being overridden by some...

    MSI's X570 Tomahawk May Become Go-To OC Board??

    I updated to the latest BIOS (7C84v183). Part of this upgrade is compatibility with Win 11. The last thing I want is an upgrade to Win 11. I have an AMD system for one thing (15% performance drop over Win 10) and have read too many articles about it's other current bugs. Also, be aware that it...

    MSI's X570 Tomahawk May Become Go-To OC Board??

    Did you try reporting the issue to MSI as I suggested a few posts earlier? They tend to be helpful (in my experience).

    MSI's X570 Tomahawk May Become Go-To OC Board??

    If you look at device manager and the description of the CPU I expect windows already knows its AMD. It would be interesting to know how it even boots if this is not the case! It will be some call to check the CPU in the MSI driver installation that is not working quite right so it's MSI that...

    MSI's X570 Tomahawk May Become Go-To OC Board??

    Well that sux! Sounds like that needs reporting as a bug on the MSI site. I have always found MSI look into these things and fix them.

    Can you report your results @4K8KW10 ? I have resisted upgrading from 20H1 since everything seems OK and I like to give any new versions of Windows a few weeks/months to get the bugs fixed :)

    Hehe you haven't been reading about the latest MSFS update - Sim Update 5. :cry:

    "Display Connection might be limited"

    Thanks @Purgatory I replaced the HDMI cable with the DP one to test it and indeed you were right. Making sure the monitor was on before the PC stopped the POST beeps. I think Windows still complains but I can put up with that warning and ignore it. The firmware has changed considerably from...

    Given the interest rates on business accounts (zero generally) they would make nothing. If the money went into a business savings account, probably a pittance. Certainly nowhere near the amount it cost them to buy cards for the free upgrades they did.

    I don't think the 3070Ti would be £1000 more than the original MSRP of a 3080. Maybe a 3080Ti would be.

    "Display Connection might be limited"

    Yup, latest drivers for monitor, Nvidia, mobo Not tried a different DP cable. The one that came with the monitor is marked "8k" and is pretty hefty. I expect that Samsung would make sure that their cable would be good for a monitor that's certainly not budget. However, all things can be faulty...

    "Display Connection might be limited"

    Thanks @Purgatory As I did say, I have the latest BIOS on the mobo, GPU and monitor (in fact, the monitor is on later firmware than the latest on the Samsung site). I'll check through your other suggestions. I haven't touched any of the eco modes so they will be set at default - I'll check...

    "Display Connection might be limited"

    Anyone got an idea what is going on with this: I have a MSI Tomahawk X570 mobo, EVGA 3080 FTW3 Ultra and just added a Samsung G7 32" monitor. If I connect any of the three 3080 DisplayPorts to the monitor, the mobo takes a lot more time to boot than normal then issues 1 long beep and 2 short...

    Does anyone bother updating their bios?

    In my experience the beta releases very rarely give issues but they do fix other things. I expect that the manufacturer is confident that they are stable but just want to throw it through many many hardware setups before they commit.

    MSI's X570 Tomahawk May Become Go-To OC Board??

    I have just replaced my graphics card and monitor since I finally got my 3080. Before that I was running HDMI out of a GTX 1060. I am now running Display Port into the new monitor. I have noticed on startup that I get 3 beeps, then the normal POST beep (which needs to be enabled in BIOS, default...

    Does anyone bother updating their bios?

    I always do. In particular while so many releases of AMD ComboAM4PIV2. Incidentally, just noticed the latest BIOS has gone from beta v172 to stable 17 (which is an increase in version number). Although, the release date is some time ago (6th July).

    MSI's X570 Tomahawk May Become Go-To OC Board??

    Can't really help with sound drivers. I am running with the default win 10 drivers at the moment as they seem to work fine and "if it's not broken..." etc. I am maybe missing features the realtek drivers might bring. Would be interested to know if anyone installed them and what the benefits...

    *** NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3080 SERIES STOCK SITUATION - NO COMPETITOR DISCUSSION ***

    I cancelled my order literally 1 day before the offer emails started to go out - typical. I ended up jumping ship just before that to a competitor and picking up a 3080 (non LHR) card for (just) less than 1k. I doubt I would have got the offer email any time soon from OC as I was at queue...

    *** NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3080 SERIES STOCK SITUATION - NO COMPETITOR DISCUSSION ***

    Why should Nvidia be bothered about the second hand market which they get nothing from, when they can sell every 3080 chip/GPU they make?

    *** NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3080 SERIES STOCK SITUATION - NO COMPETITOR DISCUSSION ***

    The trouble I have is that I have no idea what is a reasonable price and what isn't. Take, for example, 3080Ti: With MSRP being well below the reality of non-FE cards, and no prices on the OCUK shop to act as a guide how can I see what's an unreasonable markup and what isn't. I know that OCUK...
