MSI Z77 Mpower owners club / All things MPower - Page 102

post #1011 of 3634
I also have yet to be able to get mine to downclock if I set my multi to anything other than AUTO. Its a bit frustrating because I really want to keep that feature when I get my system on water and begin seeing what it can do.

I read that this morning smile.gif - looks like they are on the same page as everyone else about the MPower - Its amazing and the obvious choice for the best performance to price.

I have both - I think that the MPower is by far the best choice. With the MPower the features and performance you get for your money are unmatched. The Sabertooth is a board build around a marketing gimmick - and poorly done at that. The BIOS on the MPower is superior to the Sabertooth's clunky fluff filled BIOS. I personally think that you can't consider the Sabertooth as an "Overclocking board" in the design sense... With the glaring lack of any easy to access Clear CMOS button (and externally more so for people with cases) that task of switching a jumper in your case with everything installed can be trying. There is a reason why I use my MPower daily and the Sabertooth board is in it's box on my closet

Hi guy's coming from a gigabyte board that has lasted me years and I'm looking into buying the Mpower.

Will this thing last me a long time and is it durable?

Also I hear overclocking on this board is easy is that true?

I don't think anyone can say how long any product will last., there are trends of course but this board is relatively new to.
This motherboard works and does what most want.

Overclocking this board is pretty good.
The board is very stable.
In the end its an individual purchase decision.

This is my first MSI mobo and i am also VERY impressed, for 4.5ghz it requires far less volts (1.192v) than what my previous p8z77 I-Deluxe board did (2.355v). That is a significant drop all due just to a mobo. Usually drops in volts like that are due to getting licky and requiring a whole different chip when considering the silicon lottery. MSI has won me over with this board, although i know not all of their boards have had the stability that this one does.

I was able to overclock to 4.2Ghz I set in part each core multiplier and now it downclocks and downvolts !

The IGPU voltaj is at auto!



The CPU Vdroop is at 75% you should raise it?
