**Bclk adjustment = CPU Base Frequency.. look below

Nice to know how to tweak it, I overlooked that. Doesn't change the fact that 99.999% of all chips will refuse to work past 105mhz or so, you will start getting funky things especially with PCI-E. Nothing new about this compared to SB.

Ivy is better than sandy that way, would be more like 99.999% of ivy will do more than 105Mhz where sandy would not. It is still possible for funky things to happen the higher it is increased though. I pretty much just do bclk for benching, not 24/7.

I've tried it on several IB chips and I guess for benching its great but they will not run that way without issues for day to day use it seems like. My 3570k was fine at 110mhz up until I tried to do anything besides stress testing. Couldn't play any games at all, chrome wouldn't play flash video it would just crash out saying the driver wasn't responding. Eventually the OC just failed to POST and I set it back down to 100mhz and stuck with multi as my chip was a poor overclocker anyway.

How do you guys feel about OCing on this board comparing to ROG boards?

 Probably due to PCI bus skew.. are you running a SSD by chance? If so - try again with a crap OS and standard HDD to see if you get the same issues. Ive not tested max bclk on my mobo yet.. but plan to, as my ambients are getting lower this time of year wink.gif

 I see no immediate difference. *I have owned at least 1x ROG mobo for every Intel gen release since Core 2...  The Mpower "feels" no different than Asus Z77/Z68 flavors. thumb.gif

One thing that I have noticed between MSI and Asus Z77 chipset mb is that MSI is more finicky with memory over clocking. I tried 3 different kits of the Samsung low profile 30nm cheap ram that everyone loves to over clock and I noticed the highest over clocks for that ram were on Asus main boards. My MSI mother board didn't care for it and I was not able to over clock any of the 3 sets very much. So it seems to me Asus is better for memory over clocking.

I thought those Samsung sticks wouldn't overclock b/c MSI Bios wouldn't recognize them or come up with secondary timing for them in XMP, Gigabyte z77 boards had a similar issue until I recent Bios fix I believe.
