Hello i hv MSI 970A-G46 Mobo pared with AMD fx 8320 in all stock. value no OC with 4Gbx2 Gskill DDr3 1600 ram

everything is fine... But when ever i enter Bios i see cpu temp rise to 60 C and going up. but whn im on windows cpu temp is fine. stays like 20-25c

and also whn i exit the bios the system turns itself off. and wont boot at all. no matter how many time i press power button on my chesis.

untill i disconnect the poer cable from chesis and plug it in after 5 sec and press power button. system truns on. but if i press DEL to eneter bios. and exit. same thing happens system stays Off.,.

my mobo came with Bios Version v2.5 so i tried to update it to 2.6 everything was success but no luck the problem is still there.

and im on Windows 7.

If anyone knows how to solve this issue i would be more then happy,,

TIA

it says only Improve AM3+ FX-8350 and FX-8150 CPU compatibility.

I do not see anywhere for FX-8320 though i think if it can support FX-8350 it can also support FX-8320. but kind of scared.

im in tight budget or else i would hv been gone for 990fx extreme 4. but for now i wanted to know if the new 970 extreme 4 mobo are shipping with new bios. as i only have one CPu which uses AM2+ socket so i cannot update bios if its a older bios

a bios update will do the trick...your 8320 is supported right from bios version 2.30, current bios is 2.60

excellent choice....good chipset and a much better power phase design.

go with the rev. 3.0 though

I was hoping for Rev 4.0 but i dnt know wht they hv in shop. as they do not know how to check without opening the box...

i am not sure more revisions will come....this board was first released way back in mid 2011 if i am not mistaken.

i don't think gigabyte will keep this board going much longer unless amd stops releasing newer chipsets
