MSI Z77 M-Power Big Bang - Testing with CL3P20 - Page 3
Feeling out this CPU a bit more tonight... brought 3rd in '05 for my 5770 Xfire. Vantage needs some more clock speed to place.. but its improving as well. ;)
2144mhz RAM; 9-11-11-28 @ 1.518v Real **XMP profile
1.580 - vcore
1.17 - vccio
XMP 'Auto' - vDIMM
1.06v - PCH
1.65v - PLL
idle @ -67.1c
load @ 64.1c 4c/8t
Out of DICE for tonight.. will work on pushing Vantage over 25k next.

Reassuring to see people running 1.90v on them.... but I hope the memory ceiling is fixed soon.
Ummmm.... please can you watch your notation for voltages? "2. RAM overvolts more.. +.2v from BIOS setting." is not 0.02v (I know you explained it but still, there is enough time to start a heart-attack by the time the rest of the explanation is read and mentally processed )

Have not heard anything on the 3D'01 boost yet. I know more rev's of BIOS are under way though.. lets see what they bring!
**Tnx for the catch. *fixed* 'too much too late at night' leads to editorial mistakes
You mentioned a memory ceiling too... just curious what freq cap you have witnessed. Im trying in fits to get mems faster than 2316mhz stable.. these Sammies should scale, and just arent.
I was, however, in the same room with half a dozen of top guys from MSI's engineering team, who could fix any BIOS issue in a matter of minutes
in my case the board downvolted Vmem by ~0.02V to whatever was set in the BIOS, but had absolutely no issues running 2.0V+.
I am probably being to "nice" too these sticks .. only pushing low volts still. I can boot and run 1mil Pi on 2500mhz .. so definitely some more left in here. Gotta get the subtimings worked out still. Im pretty dialed latency-wise at 2300mhz.. gonna take some work once I find the speed to cut latency down again.
*Trying to make some room for DICE today - gonna work on pushing CPU clocks 4c/8t .. need to get faster for before bothering with Vantage & 3D'11
My 6-9-6 Gskill PSC's are in RMA still.. hoping they arent gone 'forever' *fingers crossed*

..and we were both right.. Subtimings and 1.77v .. now up to 2450mhz stable for 32mil and some 3D. Pulled Spi 32mil time again with more CPU speed today.. Tried to get another couple runs in for 3D but was having issues getting xfire up properly .. settled on a qwk single GPU run instead.

**Qwk 4c/8t run @ max clock on DI.. jeebus ivy is a burner in wprime .. will need LN to get much faster than this.. temps moving on the Marksman ~3c on a 32mil run !! No chance at 1024mil on DI at decent speeds.
