What test are you running in prime? Blend..etc
I would try stress testing with Intel Burn test, Linx
and change the settings to test your memory as well.
I normally leave it on the default selected test so it would be blend. Sometimes I'll run it on small fft. the overnight test was blend though.
EDIT: well my with this setup peak at 71C. I usually have realtemp running when ever i'm doing anything stressful.

manual voltage. usually it'll sit a little bit below but 1.39 is what is set in bios. llc (msi's equivalent is vdroop control i think) is set to low vdroop. all the other voltage controls are set to auto.
EDIT: I switched it back to 1.37v in bios since the extra volts weren't doing anything except make it run hotter. right now cpu-z reads 1.368v

i would suggest that you turn back all the oc settings to defaults and start with the cpu ratio and multiplier with the LLC level down to 1-2 (whichever the setting that doesnt drop the vcore to a huge amount, so that you can manipulate your desired volts easily).. if you cannot boot with that settings, try enabling the ppl overvoltage, though it is normally used for 4.7ghz and up..
Well i had it originally at 1.37v with it running fine except for the boot issue so i stepped it up incrementally trying to solve it to no avail.Edited by serothis - 5/22/11 at 9:02pm
