just wondering if the 1.8 bios update will make my 3.8ghz oc more stable, also wondering if your overclocks are running stable and what you have your voltage and stuff set at for the 955. 1 more thing, i would like to get my g.skill ripjaws ram running at 1800mhz, but im not quite sure which settings to change to go about doing this, sorry for the hassle, noobish overclocker, ty in advance

to get your ram @ 1800, set the timings to auto (this will loosen them up a lot) and start increasing the fsb on the 1:4 divider. Move like 25-40Mhz per change and run 10 passes of IBT high to test stability, that's good enough until you get to the high clock. Then about 20 runs on maximum setting.

Once you get your high clock, start to lower the timings, slowly. You should be able to get something decent.

Those speeds do stress the IMC a lot though, better stability with 1600~ and tighter timings.

And here's how a call to MSI to alert them to the cold boot thing went, ready for a good laugh?

Me: I wanted to let you know, blah blah blah
MSI Tech: We don't support overclocking.
Me: You mean you manufacturer an OverClock dial on the board, but you don't support it? (what happens if the dial falls off?)
MSI Tech: That's correct.
Me: Wow. Ok, well if this isn't resolved, or at least an attempt made, MSI might start losing customers when the time to replace the board comes along. I just thought I'd let you know so in the next bios revision, you do put out a lot of 'em, you might be able to resolve it for us. Thanks, have a nice day.

Well that told them marc,LOL!!,they dont seem very interested in the problem,not good PR in my eyes,they will loose customers if this carries on,considering they class the GD70 as an "enthusiast's"board,we want to overclock the b####y things dont we.

He did say he would alert them to it, and let them know the 1.51 bios was allowing cold booting @ 2.8. I explained I was not asking about warranty, just trying to be a good guy and let them know this seemed, so far, to be only with their board.

I just always get a kick out of it when the first thing they say is, "We don't support overclocking." Does anyone spend the money for this board, and then not overclock at least some? I know I can buy an AM3 board for about $70 if I wanted to, and that's an ASUS M4A785-M .
