[OFFICIAL] MSI Big Bang XPower II owners club & overclocking thread - Page 7

post #61 of 939
what is the setting in the Bios that controls the compansation level of the vcore? I've set the vcore to 1.280v (x46 multiplier) and it booted fine, but CPU-Z shows 1.358v under full load. However, when the vcore is set to 1.32 in the Bios (x46), CPU-Z shows vcore 1.346v under full load.........
make any sense? everything else is on auto....

you need to adjust vdroop control, and that option depends on your bios, with 1.3b5 bios 75% works great with high digital compensation, 1.33v in bios is 1.328v idle and 1.328v load by cpu-z... if you use 1.2 or 1.3b2 use level 1 for most accurate voltage set in bios, 1.33v in bios 1.328v idle, 1.336v load by cpu-z, you can check bios templates from me and kulpida at the beginning of this thread

Thx for the help. I did what you said and it worked like a charm, but then it bsod under prime95.
After a bit of fine tuning, I've managed a stable 4.4GHz @ 1.320v under 100% load (CPU-Z)

just BSOD'ed after 11 hours of prime95.
Most stable I had for a 4400MHz oc was @ 1.34v bios (1.346 cpu-z). with vdroop set to auto (tried 50%, 62.5% and 75% all @ 1.32v, 1.325 & 1.33 for a 4400MHz oc with no luck, trying 1.335 all over again)
Is that Safe for 24/7? I really mean it when I say 24/7, I've never switched it off (still have an Athlon 6000+ running 24/7 stock for the last 5+ years smile.gif)
Or is there something else I could try? (I've tried the 1.5x for the core speed as Kulbida, but couldn't boot into windows)
What's OCP expander? digital compensation?
Again, sorry & thanks.

P.S.: Cele303, I've noticed that you dont have xmp profile enabled and you've set the memory manually to 2133 (I guess thats their speed) but if you enable xmp, it will detect the speed by itself and give the proper timings for the memory. I've been through 3 memory sets cause I did what you did (or maybe just my bad luck). just a fyi.

Sometimes the board will be too agressive with certain memory parameters when using X.M.P. mode. Most enthusiasts prefer to manually clock their memory.

smile.gif problem was with the latest nvidia beta drivers which were causing the bsod's (even when I reset everything to default in bios, it still bsod'ed).
Now running 4.4GHz stable @ 1.328v and very happy.
Should I connect the 2nd 8-pin power connector for the CPU? does it increase stability on the long run?

Good to hear, man. My computer was recently freezing/BSODing alot too. Turns out it may have been the firmware on my Corsair SSDs. I updated it to the latest and haven't had any issues since.

As far as the CPU power connector goes, I would connect it. I did right from the start just because. I figured that my PSU had more than enough cables to go around and it ensures enough power is being supplied during intense load draws (i.e: hefty overclocks, bench sessions, etc.). I didn't connect the additional PCI-E connector to the side of the motherboard (near SATA ports) though. It is for supplemental power to the PCI-E lanes. I may do this as I have my GPU overclocked.

ALSO: For anyone interested, I am in the process of upgrading my rig with the EK waterblock for this mainboard. Please see my build log for pics, etc. thumb.gif

The original board I had I could not get a stable 5.0 GHz Overclock, and lately when I tried to boot with high overclock settings, the machine would start "boot looping". I RMA'd that board. I decided to add the XSPC full board waterblock on this one, Easily got it to 5.0 GHz at a core voltage of 1.55v on my 3960X. Very stable as well. I had some trouble getting it to boot when I enabled the GEN3 PCIE option. I contacted MSI tech support, and they provided me with the 1.42b Beta Bios (5/9/2012). No trouble now. Works great.

Please sign me up and thanks.

When I'm in OS and APS is enabled in BIOS, I can hear a high pitch noise from the cpu area, but as soon as APS function stop working when I adjust the memory frequency in BIOS or overclock CPU the noise disapears.
The noise is only when I'm in OS and it depends of system load. In BIOS everything is OK.
I think this noise is from CPU Phase because the overclock and APS function doesn't work at the same time.
Should this issue be classified as a hardware error on the motherboard, or what do you think?

Hi Kulbida,

I just upgraded from 1333 (9-9-9-24) G.Skill to 1600 (9-9-9-24) G.Skill. The motherboard reads the speed without enabling XMP, but the timings are off. Should I use XMP or set them manually?

Thanks & Regards,
