Thanks guy. I think I'm just going to wait for the oc formula instead.

I've been using the mpower all day. I spent a few hours with nothing but issues and it turns out that it was a bad ssd. My opinion changed a good bit once I actually got it running right.

I need some more time to learn what things do and how to clock it. I really only tried a few things once I got it running right. I tried some of the blck straps but couldn't get any other than 1.00 to work and couldn't boot at almost anything other than 100. In windows it'd freeze at 102. Memory booted up using the 2933 strap with some samsungs.

I've never really messed with offsets before, but found it odd with this board. Say i set 1.4v in bios, cpu-z would show pretty close to 1.4v but my dmm would read 1.45v. With the offset, it gives the option of - or +. I set it to minus and .05v. Now my dmm reads almost exactly what i set in bios, however cpu-z shows 1.35v.

THe control center worked better than I expected and I like it more than the previous version. I also thought it was pretty cool that I can change uncore on the fly within windows. I haven't really messed with much else though.

So the MSI boards are using full offset vcore settings now? Looks like a great board. thumb.gif

Thats not really what i meant. I set voltage manually in bios and then I adjust with an offset, which makes no sense to me. In the past I always manually punched in desired voltage. With this board I do the same, but the voltage read on the DMM is not the same as what I set in bios. I used the offset to basically compensate for the difference. I've never cared for the offset type voltage settings. I'm using the regular Mpower.

I hate offset settings. Just let me set it how I want.

 **Leave bclk strap setting to 'Auto' and just set bclk .. I have tested in this manner on previous BIOS of Mpower and everything worked well.. I pointed this flaw out to HQ, and they are working to resolve it. You set Auto for strap selection and enter 125 for bclk.. should boot right up after dropping CPU multi  ;)

 

Offset volts are still screwing with different software readings.. even CPU-Z 1.64.1 doesnt have it all worked out yet. Some folks are still seeing uncore or cache voltages.. others reporting similar findings as yourself.

 

**The MSI CC is new and improved! Its revamped for smoother interface and lighter on system resources as well!

Hello Everyone,

I have successfully built my Haswell system and tweaked it to my preferred 4.2Ghz setup (low temps dont hate tongue.gif). I got this stable running at 1.150V with DRAM @ 1866MHz. Now, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to keep 1.150V for 4.2Ghz and have it downclock voltage during idle states. I have the CPU frequency going to 800 MHz but the voltage remains static at 1.150V. Now this isn't a big deal but for the sake of power savings I would like to have my cake and eat it too.

I have an MSi Z87 MPower Max (pretty good board imho) but the one thing that cheesed me is how the voltage OC settings are described. I currently have it set to Override with 1.150V plugged in there. I looked at J.J.s and Linus' tutorials and they described changing the voltage mode to adaptive or using offset mode but not sure how that works. Can someone help me?

Leave vcore mode on adaptive or offset and it should scale with EIST.
post #19 of 511
Can you please tell me which setting? It is essential I keep the max VCore to 1.15V :S

I did.. change the vcore mode. Look at my power settings in the pics from the OP. You want to select "offset" intead of "override" for vcore mode.
