MSI Z77 Mpower owners club / All things MPower - Page 278

CPU-Z says 938.3 Mhz, and I think that is right for 1866. What about slots? are there specific ones the ram should be in?
post #2772 of 3633
Yes is around 1866MHz (1876MHz more accurate) and is ok smile.gif

I use slots 2 and 4 is perfect (recommended by the manual)

Did any of you notice residue where the motherboard mounts to the case on your mobos?

I purchased the Z87 MPower Max and there is residue where the mounts are.

Hello everyone at overclock.net,

I recently purchased a new PC with these specs and wanted to get started overclocking it. I tried a soft overclock of just 4.4ghz and it seems to be hit or miss. I'm fairly new to overclocking so i'm not 100% sure what changes I should be making to increase stability or what the symptoms are of an unstable OC aside from the system crashing.

I grabbed a few pieces of software to get started, CPUZ, Prime95 and Realtemp. Not sure if I need anything else. I also noticed the motherboard has an overclocking profile feature, is it possible to share overclocks with other people and have them work?

Anyways any help would be appreciated, thank you!

Specs

intel 3770k model A, stepping 9, rev e1/L1
noctua nh-d14 cooler (30* on idle)
Patriot Viper 3 8GB 2X4GB PC3-12800 DDR3-1600 9-9-9-24 1.5V Dual Channel Memory Kit - Black Mamba
MSI Z77 MPOWER ATX LGA1155
corsair 620w-m power supply bronze
msi 7970 3gb

edit; also not sure if I should post here or start a new thread. Let me know!

double edit; also did a bios update yesterday to h.80 or ...latest that liveupdate gave me. I used the tool on MSIHQ to format a USB stick to do it and it seemed to do it for me on restart.

Please post your BIOS settings for your nice 5GHZ over clock when you get some time. Thanks. smile.gif

These are my settings for 5ghz. Your mileage may vary. I still haven't fine tuned everything, but there really isn't much more I can adjust from what I can tell. Got the ram at 2400!

What memory kit your running? X.M.P. specs look like Dominator kit. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233258


I see a few things you are doing differently than me. I will try it out.



How are your 3dMark11 physics scores for your overclock?
