MSI BIOS Updates Address Cryptocurrency Mining Performance Issues

If you own, or are planning on buying, a MSI 100-series motherboard for cryptomining, make sure you read this post. The company has BIOS updates available for may of its Z170 based boards that addresses an issue affecting cryptomining.

Users found a new way out along with the release of the 100-series chipset, yet many of them found that when they attached 6 AMD graphics cards on the 100-series motherboard, even though the board successfully recognized 6 graphics cards, there were always exclamation marks on 3 or 4 graphics cards within device manager in the OS. And, of course, the cards with exclamation marks would not function properly during mining. MSI consistently heard such inquiries from customers.
