I was so close to buying one of these boards.

They were OOS though, so i got a TA890FXE instead....

Stock volts are fine for 3.5 GHz. Have you tried pressing the + on your numpad when you have volts selected?

Keep an eye on your temperatures while you're at it, too... once you start giving it more power, it's really going to be putting quite a bit more stress on your stock cooler...

I'm going to buy the Noctua NH-D14 for my system real soon, but the thing is, when I tried to set the multiplier to x14, core speed 240 MHz, NB multipliter to x7, system said "the last overclock was failed." I don't know if this mobo is the good one to pair up with the 1055t in order to overclock.

It needs more power (probably). I'm not sure which component it is that needs it, whether it's your RAM (I doubt it) or your CPU...

Honestly, the GD70 isn't an optimal board for overclocking hexacores on, just because that's not what it was originally designed for. You can reach unmatched results with an x4 965 on this platform, but the VRMs just weren't built to take the stress of a heavily OC'd x6. Don't take that the wrong way - you can typically get decent results out of it. It all just depends on how much you're willing to push it with the risk of a catastrophic failure.

If you want to go any further, I'm of no use to you. You're going to want to talk to someone with a little more experience. I have no clue how much the GD70 can take when it comes to the power draw of an x6, and I don't want to be the one responsible for something... ugly...

Encouraging, isn't it?

On a side note, the Noctua NH-D14 is an absolutely awesome HSF. Good choice, there.

Thanks for your info bro. I might get Noctua NH-D14 for CPUand Thermalright HR-05 IFX for NB , my CPU kinda hot under 3.5Ghz, I'm currently run with 3.3Ghz very stable

So would the MUX-120 fit on a setup with 4 sticks of RAM?
H50 rocks for what it is! It's nothing compared to the huge high-end coolers, but it's not expensive as any custom WC loop. With my 4ghz 1.44v/NB 2800mhz 1.3v OC, I idle at 28C and load at 44C. I'm usually around 38C when gaming.

If you really don't need all six cores to be working at once, you can disable two cores in your BIOS and overclock it further. The great thing about the Thubans are that they can OC much higher with lower voltages, so disabling two cores allows you to "bypass" that limit you reach when all 6 cores are enabled.

One problem might be that NB multi... 240 x 7 is only 1680mhz NB, you need 2 Ghz, thats stock. Even AM2 had 1800mhz NB and HT... Boost it to 240x9 for 2,160mhz, probably better that way.

HI,

Still no response from MSI,

I submitted my request for an RMA through this link below:

http://support.msi.com/index.php


I also emailed MSIRMA@msicomputer.com Got a reply back to a link which was for Canda and USA customers only despite me mentioning that I am based in the UK.

Hi guys I have one quick question about Noctua NH-D14, will it fit on our mobo without hiting the RAM? My ram is OCZ Flex EX 8GB DDR3 2133 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227617). Thank you
