    I know it mate,
    Not change board because i like to waste $, i am interested on running my kit 1T timing, msi seem to not do it well atm. May be further bios update will improve it, not sure.
    Also Msi are good boards indeed, but to me looks like they need higher frequency than asus to score the same pts. Dont you agree?

    I ran my RAM at 1T......check back on my cinebench scores .
    Also had very low timings.
    It's not the board....its the IMC as I said before .

    Not the same board.
    The ace in that way is better, on my board even if i try low 3200mhz 1t, it won't boot.

    It might not be the board .
    It could be your ram or CPU.
    You also have to bump the voltage up .
    What voltage did you use ?

    Up to 1.8v and quite a bite sa io too.

    May you right, I've judge the board to quick :thumbup:.
    i owned the unify for some time, and tested 3 different 10900k on it. Still think up to 650/700 bucks is the best board money can buy.
    No dramas bud, let's go back to the chip subjects:thumbup:
    Cheers

    Gigabyte and the Apex for LN2 so far. I plan to check the MSI Z490i Unify on LN2 but bios support for it isn't looking right yet.

    Just cause it's an expensive board, doesn't make them a good board.

    I thought you could probably get the LN2 BIOS if you find a way to contact Toppc? He is pretty active in the Chinese/Taiwanese tech forums and I often get the latest Beta BIOS for my MSI boards from his posts.

    Cheap boards are not necessarily good either.
