Yea this board has definitely had a few little quirks...i used to have to reset the cmos just to set the CPU back as a quad after i disabled a few cores...now it works seamlessly and i can enable and disable cores as i please without any cmos resetting...i love this board

So are you just clocking that for the hell of it or is there actually a worthwhile performance gain from the memory clocking

CL7 and CL6 has great Gain! Just have to get it stable... Which I don't realy know if this board can do as others are...

EDIT:
3825Mhz on the CPU @ 1.38v prime95 Small FFT's stable.
Ram is Running at 1800Mhz CL8. haven't Run Blend yet. CPU-NB @2700Mhz

EDIT 2:
3900Mhz Stable @ 1.392
Note: Running Prime95 Right now @ the BIG 4.0!!!!!!!!!

Hello to everybody...
I am new to both, MSI M/B and OCZ memory, so I'm kind of confused...
I would be grateful if you could help me with the following..
I have an MSI 790FX-GD70 M/B with 2x2Gb DDR3-1600 Black Edition OCZ sticks of RAM..
From what I can see (for exampe in SiSoft Sandra), the speed of my memory is 1066 MHZ...
Now, I am not too crazy about overclocking, however, I understand that having a speed of 1333 MHZ is not exactly overclocking in this case, as both my M/B and RAM support this speed...So I have these questions:
1. What settings should I make to get this memory speed?
2. Would I be better off by increasing the speed to 1333 (but changing the timing from 1t to 2t, if this is necessary)?
3. Would the system be stable?
Thank you in advance

Yeah i know that but memory speeds above 1333Mhz offer little to no gain and past 1600Mhz isn't doing much of anything either

So i am confused as to why you are trying for 1800Mhz

Welcome, I am running that same memory. You should be able to set it to 1600Mhz, 8-8-8-24-1t @ 1.68v. Yes, the slight voltage increase will probably be necessary, and won't hurt it at all.

If you want to run it @ 1333Mhz, then set the timings to 7-7-7-21-1t, @ 1.68v.

Good luck!

I got my board in a two days ago. When the rig is together I'll post some results. I also got my two MSI Radeon HD 5770's in, and I have to ask: Don't you think the MSI boxes are dangerous? Really, I've sliced my finger on the edge of their boxes twice! Really puts a damper on admiring this motherboard.
Built!

I am a very lucky boy. I know not what happened but my PSU "popped" and died. No sparks, no lightshow, just a loud POP! and death. But every other component functions, miraculously. I did a full error check on the hard drives even, and they came up clean. I'm using a backup 750W PSU right now. Does anyone know what may have catastrophically failed? The thing wasn't even running hot, for 1000W I mean.
