One strange issue I'm having is making a gt210 work in the mpower. Tried 2 different 210s, in both pci-e slots, pci-e 3.0 auto & disabled, 8 different drivers from 169.21 to the newest. Drivers install fine, pc gets to desktop fine, but in device manager the card cannot be enabled. The same cards work fine in other boards, & on the mpower both older & newer cards work, just not gt210 (which would be nice for the gt210 comp running right now).

I'm baffled...

Just curious if you had the Aux 6pin plugged into the mobo when you were testing 210's or not...

Going go install my graphics driver by myself rather than letting windows update do it this time to see if that helps.

So you let windows install the graphics driver for your video card ?

I get drivers for video card from Nvidia if its an Nvidia card

Have all my apps,mb drivers etc I need on a usb stick ready to go ahead of time

I just try make sure they are the newest versions

Got my replacement MPower, updated to 17.5 just because (was on 17.3 default) and running like a champ so far. Wifi and Bluetooth modules working flawlessly.

So freaking happy biggrin.gif

Hi,

I've just installed config with MSI mpower, i73770k with beta bios 17.5B7, rad silverarrow SB-E, 4x4Go G.skill ares blue PC17000 CL9-11-10-28 2T and begin overclocking test.

My best overclock for now is 4.5Ghz with 1.29Vcore, all over frequency are not stable and after 1.33V, temp reach 80°C under OCCT, so I don't want to test higher. all tests to increase Bclk even 101, no boot....
I disabled intel turbo mode, enhanced turbo, spread sprectrum, limit cpuid max, overspeed protection, intel C-state, intel virtualisation tech

For memory frequency, i was stable with 2666Mhz with 1.65V, VCC i/o 1.25V, VCC SA 0.98V with auto mode activated.

I tried to optimise timings, but as soon as I put link or unlink mode for DRAM even at 2133Mhz nominal frequency, boot is impossible, I tried to force low timings as I had just before with 2666Mhz 11 14 12 35 2T but It's not better.

And the best is, now I put back to older config with 2666Mhz, same voltages and auto mode, boot is impossible, I tested before 10 hours OCCT CPU mode, one hour LINPACK mode without failure.

I don't undestand....

Other question what is power technology in cpu features, my setting is custom.

Scored a new monitor last night, 27" LG, almost half off at bestbuy. Thinking of keeping my 23" as a second monitor for having things like TeamSpeak showing and whatnot for monitoring while using my main new screen for the game. Would it hurt my game performance to add that second monitor to my 560ti? Or would it be a good idea to hook it to the motherboard instead and let the i5 integrated graphics take that second monitor or will that hurt CPU performance and raise temps?

PC is finally running almost perfect. What a challenge this build has been.

A0 is gone off my LED debug screen after a fresh install, monitors no longer blacking out and turning off at boot up, just a matter of getting my x16 scaling to work when I set a multi other than AUTO.

im happy to hear everyone is starting to get resolved.but if your only gameing on one monitor you wont loose any performance.

So i got my Mpower up and running. At the moment i am on 4,5 Ghz with 1.255 vcore. Max temp so far 74c.
I guess that's pretty good. 4,6 was unsuccesfull so far,. I went up to 1.3 vcore and still unstable. For the moment ill keep it at 4,5. Longer testing is needed though, don't know how stable it is yet.

About the not downclocking when overclocked issue so many people have: i have this too (no downclocking unless i overclock using the seperate core ratio's instead of the cpu ratio) but i do see a decrease in power usage monitoring with core temp. Does this mean that it actually does clock down but it just doesn't show in the monitoring tools? When idle power usage is around 12-13 watts according to core temp. Under load it is much higher, would downclocking even show less powerusage?

Idle temps are good too, highest core is 35c, lowest is 22c.

got my 3570K to 4.5 at 1.225v one hour on prime95 very easily. I feel like there is a lot more room, but i can't stop playing games long enough to dedicate the time to oc. i am still loving this board and chip is pretty nice too. I am glad i made the change to intel and read this thread. Thanks again OCN.
