Hey guys. Got an MSI 890FX-GD70 and I've just flashed BIOS to latest version 1.7.
PC initially didn't want to boot as it gave a long beep followed by two short beeps.
So I removed the CMOS battery and replaced it. Then switched the reset jumper to the second and third pins and then back again to the first and second pins.
I've then managed to get into BIOS and change the boot sequence.
Everything is working fine except the LED light below the CMOS battery is flashing randomly.
Also my CPU fan is acting crazy and peaking 5700rpm. It's really annoying.
This never happened before as my PC was actually whisper quiet. A little concerned as the rpms are not getting lower than 5300rpm.
Here are my specs:
There may be an option in the BIOS to alter the speed or RPM's of the fan, should be able to choose between default automatic settings and actual RPM's although it depends on how extensive the BIOS is. If not I think there is a program out there that allows you to alter the speed once you are in the OS.
I've managed to sort the fan issue out with advice from MSI forums. I did in fact go into the H/W Monitor tab in BIOS and enabled Smart CPU Fan. I used the 55C and minimum 55% fan speed. Works like a charm.
The issue with the LED, I thought that specific LED was for illustrating faults with CMOS. But if its for reading HDD then thats fiine. Should have read the manual
