MSI P7N SLI Platinum (750i), Good OC?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I did a search and I didn't find any posts on this board (maybe it's new?) Anyone have any experience with this board as an OC w/ a q6600? Reviews seem favorable, getting q6600s up to 3.8gz, and a FSB limit of about 470. What do you all think?

I think there is a consensus around the fact that the Nvidia chipsets are not as reliable and don't OC as well as Intel atm.

Look for a motherboard with a P35 or X38 chipset.

If yo want SLI, it is a great budget board (I was skeptical at first because of the poor quad core showing by the 650i). ChrisB17 just put one on Order, so look for some info from him on it. If you look at the 1 newegg review on it, it claims to reach 3.8GHz on a quad core. So it looks like the board has been reworked from the 650i predesesor just like the 780i was from it's 680i predesesor.

Was able to overclock my Q6600 to 3.8 GHZ rock solid stable. Bios is solid, PCI-E 2.0, I slapped 2 9600GT's in this board and benched it against my friends 780i with my 9600's in it and the msi board acually scored higher in 3dmark06! not by much but there is plenty of bandwidth here!
But if you are not going to SLI, the P35 chipset would be a great choice. Its just that there are not enough 750i owners yet to back it up.

I wasn't basing what I said off the Newegg review, but there's some sites that have reviewed the board and quoted similar results. I'll be a ginnea pig and buy it. I'll post once I have my system up and running. I'm going to stress the hell out of it with 8 gigs of RAM and a quad core so we'll really see how tough it is. I think I need to look for some NB cooling to fit that weird system...

Sorry, I must have misunderstood you. I thought you wanted to know what users who own the board thought of it. Thats the only one I could find...

I would aslo recommend only using 4Gb for testing. Software has been a little buggy with 8Gb of ram. And dont forget the 4Gb M$ hotfix. I would recommend only installing Vista with 2Gb, then do the hotfix, and then install all your ram (I am assuming you are running Vista 64):

Microsoft
For those running into the problem of BSOD when trying to run more then 3Gb of ram on Vista, you need to run the KB929777 hotfix from microsoft. This hotfix applies to Vista, both 32 bit and 64 bit, so download the corresponding update.
