[Official] MSI 790FX-GD70 Owners Club - Page 31

post #301 of 9641
I just got my mobo yesterday and signed up on the forum today after going through some of the useful information I've read here. I moved over from an Asus m4a78-e and the difference is night and day. The oc'ing on this board is so much easier!

Just a few hours into my ownership, I already have several questions:

1. In Everest, my NB Core ranges from 1.09 to 2.85 volts, averaging out at 2.19. Is this normal? I have it set to 1.30 in the bios and it seems to fluctuate so much still.

2. Another thing is that I set my CPU voltage to 1.43xx but my minimum is 1.41 and maximum is 1.42. Which setting in bios increases the voltage under load and what value should it be set to?

Specs so far...

These are the only settings I have in bios:

CPU 3.838 GHz
NB 3.625 GHz
HT 2.221 GHz

CPU Voltage 1.43
DDR Voltage 1.65
NB Core Voltage 1.28 but goes to 2.8???
CPU-NB 1.30

CPU Spect off.
Cool and Quiet off.
Unused ports off.

Wow thats a high NB speed you are running. Anyway Everest reads northbridge voltage wrong so it probably doesn't fluctuate like that. And the CPU voltage going down under load is normal, it is called vdroop. You might be able to change it by changing the CPU VDD Voltage but I never mess with that stuff.

Oops, sorry. The NB freq is actually 2.625 heh. Anyway, thanks for letting me know the NB core temps are whack in everest. As for the temps in Everest, should I pay attention to the CPU as a whole or each core by itself?

Just an update, I've been running this board with a new system for a few weeks now, everything worked flawless, it picked up all 8GB ram (1.5v) at the proper 1333Mhz.

Only thing i had to change was setting it to raid0 in the bios. Installed Windows 7 without a hitch. I love this setup, my processor (955 BE) runs at 30 C° at stock speeds with moderate load (Zalman 9900). Memory is running at 20-24 C° with Geil Evo Cyclone cooler.

Does anyone run RAID 0 on this board? I'm assuming you use the two blue Sata ports for the dedicated raid controller, correct? Shoot me a PM if you have or talk about it in the thread Thanks

Ok so no matter what I did I couldnt recover my bricked board!!!!!

RMA accepted, board to be collected tomorrow and as long as there in stock I will have a new one next week! Cant wait! Cause the ASUS M4T Deluxe that im using sucks compared to the GD-70 in my opinion!

So time for me to get stuck in next week!
