[Official] MSI 790FX-GD70 Owners Club - Page 868

post #8671 of 9641
I have not used the beta Afterburner yet and the only voltage I have adjusted is the core voltage. Keep in mind you don't have any cooling on the ram chips so you may want to go easy w/the voltage on those wink.gif

I can run all 3 cards overclocked at 865MHz at 1.050v w/out any issues. I have not had much luck pushing all of them at the same time past that while maintaing stability for f@h w/the low volts I use of 1.050v and I'm not willing to go any higher on the volts.

No need to flash the firmware on the GPU's wink.gif

I have been astounded w/my choice of GPU's.

Edit: I don't know what AUX voltage is because I don't use that version of Afterburner.

You can go here for your PSU concerns.

I can't believe that this thread is still as active as it is...

Okay, so it looks as if users are clocking their CPU's higher on lower volts for this motherboard these days... Is it a newer revision motherboard or the new bios being that it's on the same CPU's as it was before? Sorry, I'm not up to date on this topic as I used to be..

Hi,

I have the MSI MSI 790FX-GD70 with the following specs:

MSI HD 5850 OC Graphics Card.

G-Skill 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz/PC3-12800 Ripjaw Memory Kit CL7(7-8-7-24) 1.65V Running at 1333mhz

AMD 965 CPU @ 3.80Ghz multiplier currently at 19x

Corsair H50 Cpu Cooler,


My questions are do you think I will be able to achieve 4ghz with the above sepcs? Also I am currently running BIOS Version1.A is it worth upgrading the new version?


I would be grateful for any advice you can offer.

Many thanks

It's not so much the board just better chips that are coming out. The 45nm process is really matured now = better chips.

Well as far as I'm aware of there hasn't been new revision past C3 on the PhenomII Quads has there?
How owuld it "mature" if they are still making the same revison Phenom's? Sorry, but that's making to much sense in my mond at this point!?

could be that they are using some of the stuff they learned from the X6's or even locking 2 of the cores and calling them X4's. More then likly though they are getting better production now that the process of making them has matured. Could even be that the latest round of chips are from a really good crystal.
