MSI Z77 Mpower owners club / All things MPower - Page 276

post #2751 of 3634
I know the answer will be there somewhere on this thread, so sorry to ask again, but has the issue of offset voltage usage been sorted out with this board. Basically is there any way to run the cpu at lower voltages and lower speed on idle and ramp it up automatically on load. I saw a video a few posts ago, But I have no clue if he did it with offset voltage or some other way.

You have to use Auto voltage, and adjust the vdroop setting last I checked.  For me, I was just running a mild 4.4ghz OC, and had the vdroop setting at 75%, that would ramp the voltage up to around 1.24v or so under load, and then go back down to under 1 when idle, or less intensive tasks.

Due to the amount of people having issues with setting up a 24/7 OC Im writing this mini-guide to setting up your Mpower so you can have a moderate overclock while still maintaining speedstep and idle voltages instead of it running at a set voltage 24/7. I'll be showing you pictures of my settings via Click Bios 2, I am only showing you them this way because its easier than taking screenshots in the bios while I write this, I do not advocate using clickbios to enter these settings. I think all adjustments should be made in the bios directly.

Oc Tab


Leave CPU ratio on Auto, dont worry we will get to that in a minute.



Leave CPU Core Voltage on Auto you can set DRAM, PLL and whatever else you want but I just adjust those mainly because I noticed the board will use a little more dram voltage than what x.m.p. specifies and my cpu doest require that much PLL, as always YMMV.

CPU Features Sub Menu


Make sure you leave C1E Support, Intel C-State Enabled and set the Package C State limit to Auto



Now here is where you will input your desired OC, I use 45 your chip might not be able to do it but it could be a good starting point. Input the value in each slot.

Now here is where everyone was having issues, remember when I told you to leave your CPU Core voltage on AUTO? Here is how you make your voltage adjustments.

Hybrid Digital Power Sub Menu


Make your adjustment with just CPU Core Vdroop Offset Control. My chip needs a setting of +62.5% to be stable at 4.5ghz, YMMV. This equates to a realworld load voltage of 1.240v tested through a multimeter (seen here) with no huge spikes or anything like that. I dont know if thats the exact value all boards will give at 62.5% offset but I dont think it would vary by much. To start though if your going for 4.5ghz I would set it at 50%, boot into windows and run cpu-z and load up prime95 and do small FFT's for awhile. The 50% value for me would have 2 cores fail after a couple hours but it would start throwing WHEA errors in minutes. 62.5% is the sweet spot for 4.5 for me, 4.6ghz is stable with 80% offset but I'm happier with the temps on 62.5%(under 70c during stress on prime95). I do recommend turning the digital compensation level to High and the CPU Core OCP Expander to Enhanced to help with overclocking. All the other settings can be left on Auto, also I recommend leaving the CPU Phase control on Auto as well, why make them work when they dont need to? It hasnt affected my stability at all during the time I've been running it like this(since the board released pretty much).

Ok so that wraps it up, go ahead and give it a try and see what you get. As always YMMV, every chip is different and could require more or less voltage to get to a desired OC. In the absence of not having an Offset this is the next best thing. Hope this helps.
Bios used during the writeup was 17.6 Beta 2 found at the link in my Sig.

Ok I've done it ! biggrin.gif
With few exepctions smile.gif
Core Ratio Limit - 44 , with 45 Mobo starts normally but then screen goes black, one beep and I need to reset . Ram on XMP 2133 an auto voltage (1,58). Went to 1.68 but still no luck, sytem didn't boot.
Offcore 62,5%, with 50% BSOD.
Dram voltage on Auto na CPU PLL on AUTO (but i saw that AUTO is 1.8v, not to big ? ).
Should I lower CPU PLL or leave it on AUTO ? What CPU PLL is responsible for ?
BTW is this method, nagle3092, safe for our CPUs or maybe I should set CPU voltage manualy and multipler also and keep it 4.5ghz all time without lowering clock speed and voltage on idle ?
What about that after I boot up I have No-Signal for about 5 sec and then login screen appears ?

Had to put Vdroop + 100% and PLL Overvoltage to Enabled. Now my MOBO is solid as rock smile.gif
Maybe someone can tell me why when I boot my PC, manufacturer logo show, then I got No Signal and go to login screen ?

hi scorpion ive just joined this site and just wondering if you know much about the debug codes ive read the manual but I keep getting codes running through from 28-41 and if every thing is running fine is it suppose to just show the code A6? the pc runs great ive got intel 3770k the h80i watercooler ares gskill ram 2100 latency. I apolagise in if im asking the wrong person if your not sure could you please point me in the wright direction and thanks in advance thumb.gif

From what it looks like its the temp reading of the CPU smile.gif don't think it's an error code.

That's what mine is anyway I had to look it up to make sure but I'm pretty sure it's your temp.

That is temperature readout(s) most likely

1st off you are using a 3570K nagle's is a 3770K different animal

I used one of those previous , 3570K and ran at 44x, Auto core voltage, c state disabled
PLL enabled and set at 1.81v

Set the VDroop at at higher number like 100% at 43/44x leave it be maybe then
You can try lower but watch in event viewer for whea errors while prime 95 is running
43x prolly good safe number to start with on each core
all turbos enabled

Nothing opens quicker on theses cpus over a couple hundred x numbers not worth it.

If y set voltage manually for cpu voltage you loose all power savings on the board

You can also try running the ram to match the processor at 1600 mhz
I have 1866 ram and run it at 1600

Yes temps most likely

Which is better for ocing ? Fixed or auto voltage ?
