I have the latest BIOS version 2.4.

What are you using to check your cpu speed in windows?

Just came home from running prime 95 at 4.6 ghz and 1.325 volts and it crashed trying 1.330 volts now.

Is there a max voltage I should go for 4.6 ghz?

Hey guys, I have the GD65. Updated my bios, everything went fine, played around a little and messed something up somewhere so I flipped the multi bios switch and went from there but when you boot I get annoying text before the bios page. Flipped the multi bios switch to where it was and reset the cmos via the button on the IO pannel, but now I can only set my multi to x37 and cant set my Vcore either, just says auto and thats it.

Pulled the battery out, reflashed bios to 10.3 and still issues and back to 10.5 and still no go. Even in Windows clickbios I can only set the multi to x37. Any help would be appreciated.

Why is the GD65 such a LOVEABLE motherboard my friends, its got everything, apart from only 6 USB ports at the rear O/I Shield. They could have tried harder that's my only critical point, or had say 4 x USB 3.0s and 2x USB 2.0's instead they have it the other road around.

However, they board looks lovely... from any distance Nicely spaced out PCI-E slots, as do the GD55 and G45. They all look fairly similar, but here in the UK the GD65 has cleaned up most of the TOP awards...

The price here in the UK is £143--£150. around that price mark.. whats the price on New Egg USA??smile.gif

I use real temp and CPU z.

I reverted BIOS to 2.3 and have access to voltage again. I adjusted multiplier to 45, core voltage to 1.290 and XMP profile to enabled. I have a stable overclock. Temps using HWMonitor hit 62C after 1 hour on prime95. :-)

Hi guys, i have a question for MSI Z77A-GD65 owners.
Which options are available for CPU voltage, is it only Auto and Manually (fixed) or you can work with offset voltage value? And if BIOS does't have offset CPU voltage option and you choose fixed value for example 1.25V does power saving tehnology still work (C1E, EIST....) i.e. does CPU voltage and multiplier go lower automaticly when PC is in idle state?

I have a plan to buy Ivy Bridge i7 3770K or i5 3570K and I would like OC (nothing extreme 4.3 - 4.5GHz) but I would also like to have lower CPU voltage and multiplier in idle state.

Please my Overclocking friend with Ivy Bridge hates the high OC so 4.5Ghz is considered a cool 24/7 overclock depending on your voltage and temps, most of all temps really cannot exceed 72c load - for a 24/7 OC.

On any of the stress testing brother, just like my OC friend above me has clearly pointed out 4.5Ghz is about a comfortable Max with IVY... stick with that and nothing should fry, personal favorite is

Corsair H80 water and GELID GX7 AIR Cooler. would do the job nicely as they are both easy to instal.

Thanks (Geeker)...

It kind of also gets a little complicated "Dragonsamus" with different boards, different bios, different user, different Wafers run of the production line, as no 2 are the same, (as a rule of thumb) tho, you will be okay with the help and support by the more experienced guys, than me, in this room especially with a G45 BOARD. However even though Ivy does boast more performance than Sandy, an Overclock of 4.5Ghz is quite an achievement. - So if you make it, good on ya..! I will take a side step and let X-Photo and other's help.. smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

Hi

GD65 owner here. I've also battled with Windows not showing the OC but in the BIOS it does.

Here is a good start for anyone that wants to OC. This settings will get you to 4.5 Ghz flawlessly depending on other factors of course...(PSU CPU etc.) I will push the M/B later and see what it can do.
