In regards to? A little more context would be useful if you need help.



I have a high res picture of the board here if anyone wants it - it is 5.3MB~

Sorry! It looks to me like there are 3 classes of support from the Mpower board for these speed ratings;
1. 1066-1600 "Standard - we got it covered."
2. 1866, 2000 "Not Standard but not OC???" I say this because I see an asterisk.
3. 2133-3000 "These are OC.....you are on your own."

Just trying to nail down what 1866/2000 involve from mobo support standpoint.

TIA

SonDa5: Did the plates come off easily? Better taking them off warm or room temp?

I believe in all the heat exchange I can get! Good looks or not.

I think the super pipe block works fine with the plate on. I don't really think it is worth removing to improve temps since I doubt there will be much of a performance. I did it because the color scheme didn't match the rest of my build. There probably is a little increase in performance though. biggrin.gif



I used a hot air heat gun to heat up the two plates on the VRM. I heated up one at a time and then used a small flat head screw driver to pry them off. The chippset plate came off very easy without applying the heat gun. I would first see if you can remove without heat gun and if that doesn't work then heating up will help. I've done this type of suff before with ram sticks so it takes a bit of carefulness to not damage anything and to do it. Don't force it. Should come off with some gradual force. I then used some GOO off to clean up the sticky tape residue.

I would recommend this board i have no regrets.

Thank you Hyperion.I think i will proceed with Mpower it looks soo damn good.Never expected this from Msi,i thought they had only good graphic cards. tongue.gif

I wish this motherboard has no issues.

Yep no problem

I hit the OC button and my cpu is running oc at 4200ghz instantly with temps around 40-50c. I haven't had any problems yet and if i do i'll let you know.

Recently upgraded my system with this mobo, put a i7-3770K in it and OC'd it to 4,725Ghz without any trouble! biggrin.gif

The only thing I see as a bad thing on this board is that it only has 6 SATA connection...
For the rest... buy this board it's freaking amazing!

Hi! First post, build and etc... I am a noob and should be treated as such but pretty much I'll be building and setting up tonight.

I will be getting the MPower and 4x4gb Samsung ram sticks. I got them for their overclocking ability, mostly tightening the timings to near (if not less than) 9-9-9-24 @1600 with less voltage than 1.5v.

So after reading that there seems to be an issue with overclocking the Samsung ram on this mobo, what do you believe is the issue? Could it be a specific batch or maybe needing a bios update?

Has anyone been able to get past stock settings, whether it be timings or speed, with the samsungs?
If not any advice from someone with overclocking them? I read on some review of the samsungs that for tightening the timings you had to fiddle with the tRCL? I'll try to find the link and mess with my ram after everything is installed/updated.

Edit: Found the link.

Has anyone tried this with this mobo?
