Yup.. i run PCH 1.066v for that bclk daily on Gene-Z and my 2600k. Didnt find much improvements in going faster.. and latency is already ~41.5ns which is pretty tight for daily/air user in my book wink.gif

Hey guys so I finally got around to setting up my system and so far I love it. I have the Mpower board with a I7-3770k, 16gb of the msi memory and the msi gtx 660 ti oc card. I have never oc before so I wanted some advice should I use the oc genie for my first time. If so what are the steps just turn system off and hit oc genie button once and start system. Also what are some of the programs I should get to be checking system.
Thanks

Well, my attempt to boot into window with 2400mhz failed. LOL. Wasn't expecting it to be successful either way. BLCK is simply too high. Well, I can at least boot in with 2200mhz. I think

What is the board that can do the highest BLCK? I am curious. OC formula?

What you are getting is almost the limit with conventional methods for a daily PC - you won't get a great bump going from mobo A to B. Into heavier duty cooling and benching is the only next step to increase performance for SB and Z77 and a single stage phase unit will cost you at least $850ish for a decent one. You can only push so far and to run 2400 with your setup I can say confidently that its not meant to be - high clocks mean squat if the performance is not there - what you need to do now is tweak your memory at a stable speed - 2133 + (what ever your IMC can do long term ) and tighten it up with the timings and sub-timings.... you want to DL AIDA64 Extreme Edition and work on the memory test to improve your your read and latency scores ( ones you can see and use from the free version wink.gif )

Finally fixed my bios 1 issue, not sure why the Bios and ME flashed worked over just a standard flash but I'll take it. Here are some pics of my current setup for now, I got 2 Accelero twin turbo 2s arriving tomorrow that I got for $70 so all together I spent $390 on 2 GTX 660's and 2 Accelero TT2's.

For good measure a comparison between my 660s and the 670 I had.
