I'm not familiar with that particular board, but MSI has a long standing record of poor VRM implementations, and your VRM is probably the single most important factor for overclocking (Motherboard wise). I'd do some reading on your board, and if the reviews are saying that the VRM can't cope, see if you can't return it for an ASUS or an ASROCK.

Just my two cents, nothing more, nothing less.

I have disliked the board since day one, I've been looking into the asus saber tooth or the asrock extreme 6...

Would that be a better choice for overclocking?

I've heard good things about the extreme 6, but have never used one so I can't really comment. I run a Sabertooth myself, and it's very nice to work with, also with the added bonus of having a similar BIOS to the R4E which is what the majority of guides seem to have been written for.

I've considered going for a per core setup, but it didn't work out within 15min of testing so I gave up on the idea.


I suppose you need more cooling, well if you wanted to clock it at 5ghz? I wondered previously if the H100 could handle the onslaught of 5ghz. It seems it may not be enough? In comparison my full loop keeps this 3820 running 5ghz @ 70c or under, give or take.

You're thinking of MSI AMD motherboards, on the intel side there aren't usually VRM issues. If I remember right on intel mobos you're better off with the VRMs on MSI than Asrock.

You're right I am, I didn't even think about that. This is my first intel build since my P120. Went to a k6 from that and kept with AMD until now.

Well from what I'm seeing, the issue isn't voltage its the fact that the bclk straps don't work..

And I'm not the only gd45 owner with this issue, msi won't fix or RNA board since overclocking isn't covered under warAntee

i've similar issue now. yesterday was the hottest day in spain, and i did a Linx test and i ended in the 3 row with +75º

What is the Max Core temp¿??

i'm thinking about to downgrade my Oc from 4.5 to 4.3; and downgrade Vcore from 1.295 to 1.250V

Whats your opinion about this?
