MSI 990FXA Gaming - a casual review - Page 5

post #41 of 113
Hmmm, it did that just because of the CPU change? Essentially it's the same CPU too. Perhaps that's why my old rev 2.0 ud3p wouldn't overclock my 8320e without issues. They didn't want that CPU to be overclocked since it's cheap...

Busy day today , might not get much done with it till tomorrow.

Click the AIDA logo (in the initial view) in the lower left corner. It doesn´t ask anything about HTML or Text format if you do as I asked.

Ah I found it,
I had to change the "view" to show status bar, giving me the Aida logo at the bottom of the dialog box.

Dont think since people still overclock on the 4 phase gigabyte i think?

Maybe just because they never tested them and just added them to the list

It's not the cpu. http://valid.canardpc.com/4w4pia
The motherboard bios obviously changes settings based on microcode the cpu has, that's how it knows where to set clockspeeds and voltages for a particular processor.
In this case, I think MSI probably wanted to protect the board by locking the voltages in bios. You can still push up to 2volts plus using command center however.
I ran Prime95 at default speeds and voltages on the FX9370 - no problems after half hour so I upped the frequency to 4.5 ,then 4.6 each for a half hour. When I tried 4.7ghz on all cores, core 5 failed at about 28 minutes, this was without adding any voltage.

I would imagine the board locks out the voltage control based on the name string.
Microcodes are identical between each CPU model of the same stepping.

I guess I thought that was part of the microcode... my mistake. Thanks for the information.

MSI website states ram oc at 2133 any chance this would do 2200-2400mhz with some tweaking in the bios?

It's the only 990 MSI board that I've been able to run my Kingston beasts at 2400 MHz - the only testing I did at 2400 was Aida 64's cache and memory benchmark however and did not run memtest etc.
The G-skill Cl 9 2133 hit 2200 easily at rated timings with a little bit of added cpu/nb .
