Not sure what your referring too.. but OC's +2400mhz with Samsung were possible on the initial release BIOS... 

 

IMO - *Im running 16GB @ 2666 for daily use on this board... and older BIOS.

I have a bit of a problem with the overclock of my I5 2500k I got it to 4.4 with 1.264v and when I try 4.5 or 4.6 is ok until I start Prime 95 and then BSOD!

Here are my overclock setings:







What should I change to be stable?

On 4.4GHz is stable and cool:)

looks like you need to open up your Wattage and Amperage limits on your CPU power options page..  looks like your current limiting your OC with your Wattage settings you have posted.

 

*max is 255 for short and long.. i know my 3770k needs at least 200W set in BIOS to run 4.5 stable. I use max settings for any OC above that point typically. It doesnt affect idle heat output.. only load max temps may increase some from additional amperage supply to CPU. Try that first though, before moving vcore..

 

Also - what post code or BSOD code you getting?

Thanks for letting me know. It's just i have read from the few page's about everyone saying they had problem getting this ram to overclock past 1600MHz

I dont get a post code and the bsod is to fast tot read! My CPU core is 1.264v for 4.4GHz and 1.298v for 4.6GHz!

I will try to set my limits to 200W for both and see if it's stable at 4.6GHz and report back! Its safe to rase the power limit to max ?

Thanks so much for your help!

PS: I will return tomorrow as it is late in my country!

**Heres my daily with 16GB of Samsung IC's @ 2666... and another of a 32mil time with a different Samsung kit...

 

 

 

 

 

 @ shady gabby - It helps to know what latency your pushing on your IMC before you move CPU multi and push for more speed.. as you can get memory management errors once the IMC latency drops below your stable limit with current voltage. This will seem like memory issues, but you will likely not get POST 23 or 55 .. but rather hard-lock in Windows or BSOD+restart after loading.

 

 If your pushing CPU still after tuning RAM.. bump your VTT a little and test for stability. If that doesnt help, move SA voltage first...  If still you cannot find stability.. move vcore.

I tried to increase the power limit to 200 and managed to reach 4.6GHz, and was stable in Prime95, but I got BSOD in idle, so I got bored and I returned to 4.4GHz settings, which are solid thumb.gif

Here are the results:




I will try to do what you said, but tomorrow I start work and have less time to overclock. When I have time and manage to make it stable at 4.6GHz will return with an update!


Thanks a lot for your help!

Hello guys, new member here.
I just got my computer back from the store with a MSI Z77 Mpower board, my old board had some problems so I got this one in return, but I'm having a few problems and would like to know if you guys can help me.

First, every time I shut the computer down, it doesn't exactly turn off, fans are still working, leds are still on, keyboard lights are still on, etc. I don't really like this and would like to know if it's normal, I read it already in here that the leds and keyboard lights being on is normal and that you can disable some of leds on the bios, but are the fans normal as well? Isn't there a way to turn this off.

Second, when I turn off the computer, as I said it keeps the lights and fans on, I can't turn it back on. If I press the power button, nothing happens, if press any keys on the keyboard, nothing happens, the only way to have it turn on again is by pressing the reset button, the one I have in my case. Am I the only one with this problem or is it like this for everyone?

Third, I can't do a restart. I'm using Windows 7 and every time I try to reboot it's the same as if I had turned off the computer, lights still on, fans still working, and I have to press the reset button to turn it on. Again, normal or am I just unlucky enough to have gotten a defective board in exchange for my old defective one?

Fourth, if I do a force shutdown, keep pressing the power button, the leds and fans will turn off, if there's no way to stop the fans and turn off the leds, is it okay to do a force shutdown, after normally shutting down the computer through windows of course, or can that damage the board or other components, or perhaps make me lose saved information?
I want to do this just so it doesn't keep consuming energy and doesn't keep me awake all night.

Sorry for my noob questions and I hope someone can give me some answers.

no this issue isnt normal. it sounds like maybe its an issue with the video card not displaying.....thats why physically the system may still appear to be on (leds and fans on) but your screen isn't displaying anything. try different video out options if you have them (try to run monitor using different output).

it may be something else but sounds like a display issue of some type but there may be something else at work here. so i dont think its the mobo, but obviously dont rule it out. try loading the display drivers your vid card needs from amd or nvidia website to make sure they are up to date and try to trouble shoot display problems first, but yes get a new mobo if you isolate it down to that

hard booting off shouldn't damage modern new components, but obviously will loose data if unsaved and its not the best way to shut down a pc.
