Yes! I have tried this tool (very nice BTW!) but unfortunatelly it's a little bit more complicated for me than EVGA Precision and it does not support fully my card (for example I tried to set fan profiles in the software but I couldn't)... Anyway, Asus has also an overclocking utility SmartDoc which is quite fine (for example you can overclock your card while you play in some game ... in real time).

Thanks a lot Kokin for this information. I'll give it a try and will see how it works. I've downloaded a file named "GPUTool_CTP1.exe" ... and is this the one? I mean could you send me a link for the tool you use? And what about compatibility with Windows 7 x64?

Just got my new MSI mobo yesterday, so far i love it, but... i cant get a good setting to run my memory at 2000mhz i have 4gb(2+2) if Gskill f3-16000cl9d-4gbtd and its running at 1333mhz, honestly ive never overclocked ram memory so I'm pretty new to that, i choose this ram cuz it showed up on the list of some of the tested ram from the MSI site. If someone could help me this it would be awesome, please give me detailed instructions of how to do this.

Thanks guys

BTW its a amd phenom II 955 be.

I was only implying that it "Could" possibly be somethng other than CPU-NB Voltage. It seems that the 790FX Chipset needs around 1.2-1.23v to Run 1600Mhz Stock Ram.... That's all. What's the point of adding more volts in areas that might not need it.....

FYI, unless MSI does somethnig spectacular with the BIOS, this board will not be running any Ram, anywhere near 2000Mhz Anytime soon, if at all. Even with extreme cooling methods!

This is from my experience With OCZ Flex EX 2000Mhz CAS8 Water Cooled Ram.

need help hitting 4ghz. Is there any other voltage besides cpu that i need to increase? I'm at 3.8 ghz at 1.4 volts and its 9 hour prime95 stable. Ive tried up to 1.48 volts to hit 4.0ghz. HEres everything. Also how can i either increase ram speed or drop latencys. NEver done that before. Heres my bios settings. Tell me if something should be changed or enabled.

I see your point,lol!!,i am of the opinion that a lot of the ram speed problems are to do with the PH's having two IMC's,one for ddr2 and one for ddr3,i know AMD like to make there platforms backward compatible,so as not to alienate AM2 and AM2+ users,but there comes a time when we all have to change,so i for one hope the next gen cpu's are ddr3 only.

Any thoughts on this,???

Ok looks like 1600 CL8 is fine...now going to try and reduce the timings.

@ryman456,where to start,lol!!

First off,you have most of your bios settings on "auto",apart from the cpu voltage,and you only have the "cas latency"set to 9,please have a look at my settings in screens below,but only for refference,this is what i use for 4.2ghz,so you will need to adjust things to fit your needs.

Please dont jump straight in and use my settings,(this is years of experience),you need to do things gently,one bit at a time,each setting one at a time,etc etc.
