Beginner in O/c

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So, i've done some reading the last few months.

Check out the specs I filled them out in my CP.

Not sure how to o/c if I cannot set the variables into the BIOS, as I do not seem to be able to do in my MSI 7191 board BIOS.

Any help is appreciated thanks.

if you cant oc via the bios then id say u cnt oc at the moment. i wouldnt use any AI software to do it. You could try a bios update. other than that i'd say a new mobois needed.

Okay, I went over to http://www.esupport.com/ and filled out their forms on getting an updated BIOS, so now my next step is to call them supposedly they have a few questions for me first.

I'll get back to you on what I find out

You rock thanks for the info, I grabbed Live Update 3, and running it now.


utility says i have MS-7191 (RS482M4 Series) bios 1.20
1 update available, and the update is 1.20 the same as i have installed now?

That's a bit puzzling.

Looks like I have the latest revision, so I'd have to buy a new mainboard - damn.
