MSI 870-G45-Series Owners Thread/Club - Page 9

post #81 of 318
I have one running the beefy Gigabyte 6950, might try and crossfire at some point but for more than a year this motherboard has provided great reliability for the low price.
(I'll get a picture at some point, but since I recently put the 6950 in I haven't bothered with...even decent cable management.)

Okay, I'll add you! Just when you get a chance, take a picture, or provide a CPU-Z validation link (I think this one is a lot easier ).

Late afternoon Jetboy

I'm still saving for another motherboard so I can tamper with this one and attempt to catch up to you with 4.0mh oc!

EDIT: WHEN DID YOU HIT 4.2 ?!

I O/Cd it almost 1 week after I purchased the mobo. I increased the voltage to 1.522v, and it is 100% stable. See my CPU-Z validation link in my sig for more information on how I overclocked it!

I actually thought it was at 4.0. Then just for kicks one day, I opened up CPU-Z, and I saw that I was running it at 4200Mhz. Then I was like "Oh yeah, I did overclock it to 4200Mhz". lol. But yeah, it was 4.0 beore.

Oh neat, I'm so tempted to try 4.0 but I really have no reason too... Nothing to be fast about right now and my video card is weak

Well if you are running Windows 7 (which you are), then overclocking to 4.0Ghz would give you dozens of advantages even if you are not a gamer...

Well, first off, I wanna say that Windows 7 is a horrible operating system in caomparisn to linux, and/or even OSX. Windows 7 has many problems. Windows 7 uses these services and processes which keep the machine running, and execute tasks that the computer needs in order to run. All of these services and processes add up, and in the end take up a lot of CPU usage. With our awesome processors, the CPU usage will be very low, but when you are running a game, and more processes and services are running than (truthfully) there need to be, it can slow down our puters. Because Windows 7 relies on the CPU to execute these calculations, and simply tasks, a faster CPU clock will make these tasks faster, and in the long run, your computer will be faster. Some advantages are; faster startup/shutdown, faster explorer browsing, faster copying/pasting, faster program execution, better multitasking, and even faster internet browsing.

SO......... I would recommend overclocking to 4.0Ghz, if you have adequate cooling... Make sure your temps don't exceed 55....

Any more questions?
