But I have the OC at 4.8 GHz @ 1.42V. With the Vdroop set to low, during OCCT stress test it drops from 1.42 to 1.403 or something like that. Is that good? It ran 8 hours on OCCT w/o error. I'd say that is stable? Highest core temp was 77C.

Try putting it on a usb and flash from bios.

Im not sure about 1.42 to 1.403, seems quite a jump that, try increasing the LLC level mate! As for OCCT, again I dont have any knowledge of testing with this, I just use p95. But you could try the quick 1344 and 1792 p95 tests from the link I posted, these arent 100% stable tests but they give you a good idea.

When you say Level 8 out of 10 is msi or gigabyte or any? I have mine set to 4, which means it stays at the vcore I set, at level 5 it will go from 1.36 to 1.4 depending on load. So does having it at level 8 push vcore even further up?

Basically you need to set it to a level that means that it is closest to what you set in bios, once your in windows and under load. For most people llc level ultra high (on asus boards or 4/5) tends to be the best setting.

How do you do this? I also read that you shouldn't update your BIOS on an overclock or you risk destroying your mobo. True?

download the bios and put it onto a USB drive. Go into bios and select the bios update option, then select your USB stick.

Ive not heard of the 'revert back to stock settings prior to updating the bios' before.

Okay, good. But, what about a BIOS update on an overclock? Should I return the whole system to stock? Read the first part of this thread. It says something about not running a BIOS update on an overclock:

Its up to you crossedup, ive never reverted my overclock back to stock before doing bios update, but you can do for peace of mind. It only takes 30 seconds to put the overclock back on doesnt it so why not?

With the msi boards you need to flash your bios in windows. I've talked to them already. There bios versions now are to big to use the flashing tool in the bios( what sense does that make doh.gif ) If you did the "Install All" from the Msi disk, you will need to delete the version of @bios from your pc and install the newest one from the website. Download the latest bios file to your desktop. Open @bios and point to the bios on your desktop to flash. It works perfect. It's the only way with Msi boards. For Sandy Bridge that is. You will loose all the settings in your bios when it flashes. I would first take down all your settings that you changed so you don't forget what was set. I would go into the bios and load the default settings and then go into windows and flash. Since you have to flash in windows, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND FLASHING WITH NO OVERCLOCK.

If you get stuck, let me know. I've walked many people through this process with the Msi boards. I had the P67GD65 for a few weeks. Wasn't fond of the non U-EFI bios.

I think none U-EFI is like the old gigabyte type BIOS with the horrible looking blue layout. U-EFI BIOS is like ASUS one with colours and much better layout, I think! Not sure on that.

HT enabled? IMHO that is good. I would be satisfied with those clocks at those voltages. If you can do 5.0GHz at 1.45v or less than you should be pretty content!
