MSI 890gxm-g65 question>me =noob

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So i have the motherboard listed above with a phenom II x4 965 BE, and for cooling a coolermaster hyper N520. The motherboard has OC genie, now,it isn't a one touch button. it has two switches, if you put them in a different order you get 10%, 15%, or 20% overclock. Like i said im a huge noob to overclocking so i want to use oc genie. My question is do i have to put the switches to say a 10% overclock and start the msi control center for it to auto adjust, or do i have to start the control center first and then turn the switches on to whatever percent i want?

Never use OC genie or other auto overclocking switches on motherboard or software. It'll more likely damage your hardware than give you a decent overclock. OC manually through BIOS. And take caution on that mobo, it is known for failures on OCed higher TDP (125W+) processors.
