I tested the same settings as bios 1.10. Actually cpu-z shows a wrong vcore on this screenshot.

On bios and on everest, I'm at 1.455 vcore, cpu-nb at 1.27.

I'll try to use better memory settings this weekend. Maybe I can even test a 5870 crossfire.

Temperatures are the same as before and after the washer mod my northbridge temps are really low now.

I can also bench at 4.1 successfully. I'll try to reach the same stable settings with 4.1GHz.

I think that 1.12 bios needs less volts for a succesfull cpu-nb overclock.

Behind the motherboard you'll find 6 screws holding the heatsink. Use a thin plastic/nylon based washer between the motherboard and the screws in order to raise the pressure on the heatsink.

Actually, for some reason, MSI is a complete failure on this washer thing. The same "mod" (if I can call this simple thing a mod)can be used on the 5870 Lightning video card.

Awesome! Tell me how it goes. I'll be free to try it out next week since I'll be done with my finals from my university.

Lotsa work here but I'll start working with the new card today and new overclocking settings this weekend. I'm still in awe with the washer mod for the heatsink.

My temps not only dropped but they stay the same under heavy load.

So I bought one of these boards last night, its on sale an NCIX.com for $149.99 with $20 rebate.

Im wondering how it handles the new hexa-cores, i've read the previous messages and the board doesnt work too well with them? I was going to get the 1055T and OC, but now I don't know if to cancel the board or cancel the CPU.
