With this new Mobo and weird BIOS I'd like some help if anybody has the same rig.

I want to know what BIOS settings anybody uses.


AMD Phenom2 x4 965 @ 3.877GHz / MoBo Asus M5A99FX Pro 2. / 4 x 2Gig Corsair DDR3 @ 1599. / Evga GTX670 FTW.@(dynamic)./
500g Seagate SATA + WD320Gig SATA. / DVD Burner. / onbd sound. / Corsair 850w PSU. / Win7 Pro 64bit. At least 7 different brands to make up my water cooling loop. Monitor LG2442PA.

Uh-huh? wired bios? It's pretty much same in all Asus BIOS and this board also have the same layout - the easiest layout present in current generation of motherboard IMO.

I think he may be overwhelmed by the look and extra functionality of UEFI.

You got it in one freddie!

I was never the one to set up a BIOS perfectly at the best of times, but now, if you mean this strange new BIOS is UEFI then yes! I just don't get it.

One setting has really rolled me. The CPU setting is 16 X 240 = 3877mhz.

That threw me for for six!

I don't know how to set a ratio unless the BIOS actually say "Set Ratio"   or  "Ratio equals"

The RAM is running at 1599. Close enough! The NB stuff is 2400. That is good. Goes with the RAM at 1600 I think. The RAM is supposed to be 9-9-9-24 2T. I think there is supposed to be a 41 in there somewhere but I don't know what it is.

I'm also afraid to up the voltage on this board. The M4n98TD evo could take 1.55 for the CPU.

 

Hornybluecow: Pro 2.0, not Evo!

^^ CPU ratio is quite normal It is the normal deviation from original value - happens all the time.

Just ignore.

I just set a few more things in the BIOS (play with it and you will learn).

In the heading "SPD" it has numbers for each seperate stick of RAM.

Dimm 1 and 4 reads TRFC as 107 jedec and 128 XMP #2

Dimm 2 and 3 reads TRFC as   74 Jedec and  88 XMP #2

Even though the RAM is running fine, should I be worried.

If not at least I'd like to know why they are different. Please?

 

And can any body tell me why 240 X16 = 3877? Or do you mean this is the deviation?

242.31X16  = 3877.

FSB deviation, happens all the time.
