MSI Z77 Mpower owners club / All things MPower - Page 128

post #1271 of 3634
Hey ride1226, I have mine OC to 4.5 with a VCORE of 1.24 and temps are 65. I'm not sure about diminishing returns and such..I just wanted to let you know that the board can handle it and be stable. The amazing thing is that on my Sabertooth I had to hit 1.28-1.30 to get to 4.5 and my temps were super high.. breaching 70c. I can't believe how well this board handles overclocking.

Oh quick question..is keeping 100% LLC 24-7 safe or am I risking the longevity of my CPU? Personally I would think that raising the LLC opposed to raising the voltage to compensate for Vdroop would be safer. Thank you for any answers

Thanks for the info. Now the only part I'm confused on is why when I set my voltage manually does my CPU not down clock to x16, but when voltage is set to auto it does. Any ideas?
post #1273 of 3634
Hmm, just got my z77 mpower & 3570k yesterday and am bit confused now. All stuff completely stock my cpu voltage is 1.216-1.224v during prime95 which does seem awfully high for stock? Also noticed that cpu seem turbo to 3.8GHz for all cores even at 4 thread stress, sholdnt it be 3.4GHz when 4 cores are utilized and 3.8 only for single core apps or is it normal behaviour with this mobo?

That's normal behavior. The auto voltage setting is definitely high, that's why I set mine manually. You can save yourself 10+° by taking it off auto and setting voltage yourself.

Well taked a look to uefi and seems like this mobo has "enhanced turbo" enabled at default which makes it to have 3.8ghz all the time at load & also adds more voltage. Disabled it just to test how it affects and now cpu is running like its meant to be at stock, volts at load are 1.136v which sounds much more like it should be at stock.

Not that i care that much really as i intend to overclock manually anyway, but must say rather strange decision from MSI to have that setting mentioned above enabled at default. Basicly what they have done here is that CPU is running out of intel spec which basicly voids warranty of the cpu.

What are your temps at stock? i have the betfinex Recon fan controller and i have a thermal probe right underneath the h100i block and its give me a reading of 32c, The msi mpower deg bug gives me a reading of 36/37c, and realtemp GT give me a reading of core 1 28-30c, core 2 33c, core 3 37c and core 4 at 38c. Are my temps high for being at stock at idle? I need help on witch one is giving me the right temp as well

Eric, those temps at idle from Realtemp are correct, mine are pretty much the same, 22 at my lowest core and 36 my warmest. The On board sensor is telling you a less detailed (not all four cores) out put of the temps just the Highest. I wouldn't worry so much about idle temps. Its the load temps you need to worry about.

when i overclock to 4.4 i get temps around 60c at load but the thing im worried about the most is when I over clock to 4.6 I have to turn the vcore up to 1.4800 to get it to be stable. Blatsz32 is my vcore to high for a 4.6 oc? Am i doing something wrong? In the bios i turned off all turbo settings and did the vdroop at +100. is there something Im missing or not getting to get the vcore down to run at 4.6? it is stable at 4.6 with vcore set at 1.4800. My temps at 4.6 is around 80c

yes thats a VERY high Vcore. have you turned your LLC to 100%
I switch between 4.5 and 4.4 core and i use 1.23 for 4.4 and 1.24 4.5...I've gone to 4.6 I if I remember correctlly i was only at 1.28v and stable in OCCT with temps at 65c max. I have a day off this Thursday, I'll stay up late tomorrow and do some overclocking and take pictures of what I'm getting and my BIOS settings.

Eric for the love of God, do not raise your Vcore to 1.46 for an extended time. I think I used 1.46 on my sabertooth to hit 4.7 or 4.8 and only benched. The temps scared the poop out of me. I do belive the TJMAX of Ivy is 80c. No?

Strange..you turned off enhanced turbo? I left most of my settigns alone. i even have my Cstates on as well as C1e

k, not sure if the pictures will help. something screwy is happening now. My base clock in the BIOS it 1000 but in control center its 102...I set it to 1000 so it should be an even 4.4 oc even if it isn't I'm still stable at 1.23v..my memory on the other hand is causing me issues when I benched. If I can get the Base to read out correctly the bios settings is fine. 4.4 ratio, 1000 base, and 1.23 Core Voltage. raising it to 1.24 or 1.245 will make it a stable 4.5 and I do believe 4.6 overclock. don't quote me on the 4.6.

I have read in other threads that 4.5 is usually the safest overclock for a 3570k for 24-7 usage
