That's good. Travel over to the Marketplace here. A lot of PSU's for sale for good prices and some good used ones as well with a long of life left on them!

Hi all,

just jumped from a P35 / Q6600 based system to the Z77A-G45. There's an important issue with Crucial's Tactical Tracer RAM modules (the ones with animated LEDs) and the current 2.5 BIOS that I thought worth a mention:

I'm using 4x4GB Tracers (9:9:9:27 1866Mhz 1.5V) with alternating colours (RG / OB / RG / OB). Everything works fine in the old 2.4 BIOS, but in 2.5 it goes nuts:

1) XMP cannot be enabled in Standard settings (always grayed out)
2) you can enable it in OC Genie, but:
3) If you try it in OC Genie, or set the XMP values manually, it works for one reboot, except:
- it massively overvolts them at ~1.65V
- on the next reboot it throws a fit, and resets everything to ultra-low 1333mHz. The 'adjusted' mem freq then says '1333mHz' .

I'm speaking to MSI support, and the reason is that the 2.5 BIOS now checks the exact model number of the modules - if they don't match perfectly, the BIOS assumes the modules aren't matched and disables XMP (and that also seems to cause the other issues). Problem is the Tracers have their LED colour option in the model name - so the 2.5 BIOS assumes they're not matched. In my case:

BLT4G3D1869DT2TXRG (RG = Red/Green)
BLT4G3D1869DT2TXOB (OB = Orange/Blue)

I'm trying to explain to them that maching the model nos fails here, and that it makes more sense to check if the actual SPD/XMP values match - or failing that, make an exception for the Tracers.

Ongoing ...

That's a lot of work and trouble for some lights sir. tongue.gif

Good luck. Keep us posted.

Hi!

I have a GD65 motherboard

I'm running CPU-Z and disabled hyper-threading. I don't know why the frequency is always changing from 1.6 ghz to 3.5 :S:S

Another question is where I can find a good BIOS profile for get the maximum performance in games without overclocking (all options in BIOS)

thanks in advance

You are getting 1.6ghz at idle because of offset, EIST, C1E, and C-state support settings.

Also, to let everyone know, I am working on an overclocking guide for each OC setting in the BIOS. I have a Z77A-G45 mobo, however, MSI UEFI BIOS is pretty much the same from what I have seen across all boards so this could help a lot of people with MSI boards. If anyone would like to help contribute, let me know by PM or here. It will be over the next week or so. Screen shots will be included, etc.

Thanks.

Great thread everyone!! I used the overclocking template posted by Milamber, on page 11, and I'm sitting pretty at 4.5Ghz. I only built this system yesterday and haven't had a chance to explore all the motherboard options yet, but I'm very impressed with the GD-65 so far. I came from a P67A GD-55 board / 2500k and this setup is wayyyyyy better thumb.gif
I'll keep it at 4.5Ghz for a few days and then push it up a bit when I have a chance. What does everyone recommend for going higher? Do you leave the core voltage on Auto. . . or manually set it?

Hi! thank you for the help. I've put the BIOS like that guy but...still my CPU is changing its frequency from 1.6 to 3.5ghz

Offset : +75%
EIST: enabled (enabled or disabled, still 1.6ghz issue)
C1E: disabled
C-state: enabled
Overspeed protection: disabled

I have all options like him but not the custom power technology because I have a 3770k.

Now my pc starts faster, I think because ECO options are turn off.
