MSI Z77 Mpower owners club / All things MPower - Page 32

post #311 of 3634
So I finished my MPower build. My first benchmark I run (3dMark 2011) it sounds like to corsair AX850 psu is about to crash and burn. It has this very loud electric buzz when under load and it is the loudest component in my case.

Is it possible that my system uses more power than the AX850 can provide? I have a second gtx 670 on the way but I am now doubting whether the psu will be able to handle SLi.

Specs:
3770K @4.5
Zalman CNPS9900
Z77 MPower
G.skill Ripjaws Z 4x4GB 2400 ram
MSI GTX 670 PE
600T Chassis
AX850 PSU

Cheers!

No, this board is rock solid !
Really happy with it, The only issues I had was a setting I did not know how to set properly & a normal behavior that I mistakenly interpreted as a sign of defect.

Yea everyone has the bios update flash loop (teething problems cuz its a new mobo), BUT it only happens just after you update, after that its normal boot.

Yeah, don;t take my comment as anything to do with stability. I think I fat fingered something in the BIOS causing it to do what its doing, it is super stable with my OC. I was actually able to get a better OC at a lower voltage than the Asus board I had my CPU in previously so I'm very happy with the performance. The power cycling I'm talking about happens much faster than it does if you have a bad overclock and it resets itself.

They say it is optimized, whatever that means?. Was looking for some hard data! Is ram just ram?

I ordered the MSI memory and should be here tomorrow I will follow up with the performance. I will be building my system on Friday.

Can anyone get speedstep working? My multi won't drop to x16, I've used BIOS 17.3, and also the new beta H:45

EDIT: I have emailed MSI, will see what they say about it, hopefully fixed within the next bios update hopefully...

It seems like the same thing with my OC. On stock, the freq did drop but moves a lot. Ahh well, not a huge deal......IMO

How does the OCing on the MSI rams compare to samsung 30nm? Or does anyone have actual OCing experience with them?
