I do believe they asked you reflex99 for ways in which they could improve their motherboard (the one we used). Correct me if I am wrong smile.gif

yea, he had the new Z77 Mpower board, and asked me what I noticed about it. They were looking for feedback on the design. Really though, without using it, there wasn't a whole lot I could say. The layout was free of the usual screw-ups that manufacturers like to fall into, and it had all the little things i like. (easy voltage check thingies, diag LED, power connectors in the right spot, etc)

I felt special :3

First time overclocking AMD... I think I will get the hang of it eventually, but you are right - it had been a long time since I did any benching (looked at my HWbot and my last submission was over a year ago redface.gif)

Thanks OCN, & congrats to the other winners!
Mega did do well for the length of time it's been since he was frozen.
Hope Micul is feeling better also, I was sorry to see you have to leave early from illness.

I'm sure it was my psu that went out with a bang & not the board, I've never heard a mobo go out like that before...

Never heard a motherboard go out like that either. It was definitively the PSU biggrin.gif

Give credit where it's due, MSI is at least trying. They are a vast improvement from the GD70s


I blame the bios more then I do the motherboards. The standard public bios, which was on the boards, was very functional. It just didn't have vcore voltage over 1.45v. They do this to keep rma's to a minimum, but they will gladly create betas for extreme users. MSI's reps, Alex and Manny were quick to action for finding us a solution to our bios/voltage problem. It was to late to have a bios created and Manny searched for about 45 minutes finding us a bios from Oct 2011 that allowed for high vcore of over 2v. The old bios was very buggy and immature. The cursor didn't work right and there was no option to disable cores along with who knows what else wasn't working right. MSI was more focused on offering us support for taking the Lightnings to extreme levels, which they had some special software ready for us when that time arrived. It's these little details that Alex and Manny were very inquisitive about to improving their products. As I was telling Robert from AMD earlier, extreme overclockers are the hardiest to please. We're can generally find a fault in something no matter what product it is. That being said, I'm sure MSI can make us a beta next time.

MSI was the only "big" manufacturer there right?
