It looks to me like you have things pretty well covered as far as disabling power saving features in the bios.The only thing that I would ask is did you disable APS?(active phase switching)
Unless you were unlucky as far as getting a poor overclocking chip, I would expect to get 4.4 ghz out of that combo if your cooling is up to it.
The Vdrop you are experiencing is typical for a board without LLC, and it sounds like you have compensated for it accordingly. A couple questions about the chip, what batch is it and what does cpuid report as being the VID?
Prime 95 has been problematic for several people here with the vishera , have you tried other stability programs? OCCT , Intel burn test? OCCT will graph your voltages as it is testing and this will help determine if the power delivery system is working properly. I would suggest starting with it. Then if we get good results move on to prime 95 .
Take a look at settings on your ram , does cpuid report the timings and speed as being the same As the sticker on the ram indicates? Also it will report alternate JEDC standards for that particular ram.
For right now I would try to match the settings the sticker on the side of the ram itself possibly only bumping up the voltage a little. Later on maybe we can try getting some more speed out of it.
As for the aux temp, I get really weird board temp readings from software like Hwmonitor etc. on my msi boards. Just make sure you have good airflow across the vrms etc. It's remarkable the difference just an 80 mm fan placed over them will make, these board have a big heat sink just need a little air movement to make them efficient.
Could you please fill out your system specs in your signature? Always helpful to do that.
Check some of these things out and report back
Thank u for your helping.
My full spec is:
msi 999fxa-gd65 rev 3.1 mainboard,
16gb ram totaly =(2 x 4gb kingston ddr3 1333mhz+ 2x 4gb gskill sniper 1600 mhz) all of them working 1333 mhz 9 9 9 24 33 2t command rate. i used all of them my old system without problem
Cpu cooler=xigmatek loki sd963 (i didnt see up to 62 degree celcius with 1.59 vcore)
vga=Sapphire 7870 ghz overclock
600 watt xilence psu(it handled 900 mhz fermi gtx 465 gpu and 4 ghz q9500)
No cd -dvd rw because are ide
need sata conventor.
750 gb samsung hdd
Now this information your asked
and ram timings
Bios doesnt have aps option but i think smilar that cpu phase control= yes it is disabled. No timing information about on kingston ram sticker.
And restore after ac power loss=disable too.
And i noticed very intresting things on post screen. 16 gb ram and unganged mode(64 bit).What is this? i mounted dual channeled and aida shows dual channal 128 bit..
Thank u again. Best regards..
