Why can't I find my Vcore in my bios?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
So I finally got the nerve to overclock my 1090t to 4.0GHz with my aftermarket cooler (Cheap, but I cranked the fans up). I found the multiplier, and I found were to turn like C1E off and stuff. BUT I CAN'T FIND THE DANG Vcore! Seriously I tinkered, and tinkered, or course reseting the settings so I didn't screw anything up.

But I literally can not find the Vcore, and I really would like to not starve my 200$ CPU before BD. I have a 890FXA-GD70, with the new v1.9 bios for AM3+ support.

Any help would be well appreciated.

I wouldn't overclock on that motherboard, let alone run a hex-core on it. It is an MSI board, that has few horrible quality mosfets that are well known to catch fire even with quad cores at stock.

I would advice you to read this.

I have been fairly fine with my MSI boards and overclocking before. Same with everybody I know, I am not doubting you. But any help on my actually question?

Depression! I hate to agree with poopingdevil(not that I dont like him, I am sure he is a great guy, I just feel the same pain because I too own a nikos riddled mobo), but it is true. I would also advise against using the Rocketfish cooler you have. It is a re branded CM tx3 and that thing works great for the Athalon II, but is insufficient for the Phenom II. You need a 4 or more heat pipe solution, like the hyper 212+ or the h50(best buy 39.99).

Alright, just making sure you know the risks with your board.

Voltage settings should be in CMOS Setup Utility, Cell menu.

See I know that, its weird I get really impressive temps with it too. I also know it a fairly cheap cooler. I was looking at the H50 or the h212+ Considering my birthday was just a couple of days back I will pick myself up one of those H50's. But any help on my Vcore? Thanks

Also, I looked in the Cell Menu. I actually looked everywhere in my bios. I can find it in all of my other computer except this one. Maybe they forgot it in the bios update?

Have you scrolled down? It should be in the Cell menu, just lower.

Ha! that would be funny if they "forgot" the vcore adjustment. Maybe a safeguard considering the amount of failures.

On a helpful note, its not at the bottom of the cell menu? Maybe they renamed it, snap a few photos of the bios cell menu and post them, now that the disclamer messages are over, we are ready to help

Are there any other names that it goes by? Because at the very bottom I see things like the NB power and CPU power. So on, anything like that?

Edit: I actually just saw cooks post. Thanks I will snap pics in about two hours. Web design class on macs. Not to entertaining.
