Without LLC im not really sure what you can do with that particular mobo to keep the voltage from moving. I have an Asus Sabertooth r2.0 and the voltage moves a little but its usually within the hundredths or thousandths of a volt. Mostly the thousandths. However my fsb will also fluctuate from 219.1 to 219.7 as well. Anyway I was going to ask how long you have had that board, is there any chance to get another one? I will say though that MSI makes great parts from what I have heard and seen. I have never owned any msi products but friends have and they love them. Be careful of dead fsb spots in your mobo thoughl. I ran into it from 211-215 on my sabertooth. Good luck, sorry I couldn't be of more help to you.

It seems that the damn voltages just never change...I change it in the BIOS and the system never takes into account what I entered lol. It always seems lower. The actual Core Voltage doesn't seem to be oscillating much anymore, it just won't set to what I enter. Right now it should be at 1.302 and instead I get:

Have you turned of all power saving features? Turn off turbo core also.

Yes I have. To see what would happen. I left the Voltage on Auto and proceeded to try the system @4.2,4.3,4.4,and 4.5Ghz. Each time the Voltage would not go over 1.360 ever. The board couldn't stabilize for 4.5, 4.4, or 4.3. It seemed stable at 4.2 however. What's going on here? Why can't I increase my CPU voltages to make things stable (or why at least doesn't auto do it to compensate for the higher ratios)?

Edit: If all I can get is a steady 4.2 on this, there is no point. It goes up to that anyway with Turbo Core when it needs to anyway. If that's the case I'm better off with the power-saving features on to prolong life and decrease heat. And for an apparently 'bad' board I just wanted to show that it's supposed to be good. The #8 fastest OC for FX8350s in the last 12 months was on this board at 8370.9 Mhz, according to CPU-Z
