I used to own an old C2 955 and it would only reach 3.8ghz-4ghz at over 1.5v, but with my 555/unlocked B55, it does up to 4.1-4.2ghz at around 1.5v. This board has a lot of options for overclocking and tweaking, so I find it weird that the options are grayed out.
You may want to update your BIOS to a version that supports the 960T, though there hasn't been any updated versions out lately, so I would suggest the 1.G/1.16 BIOS as it's what I've been using for over a year now and it's been the best one to date, at least compared to about 10 or so other BIOS versions I've tried in the past.

alright ill give that bios a try when i get back home thanks thumb.gif

Good luck! You can always change BIOS versions if you're not happy with the one you have.

Congrats! :thumb

You can probably hit 3.6ghz-3.7ghz on that voltage, maybe even 3.8ghz if you're lucky.

Good to hear that the 1.H BIOS did hose your board. There was a lot of people, on newegg reviews, that switched to the 1.H BIOS and their boards would POST anymore.
I updated mine to 1.G because I was worried about that. Although I did learn some cool stuff about the BIOS in this board. If for whatever reason you had gotten a bad flash, you can use a thumbstick and runa BIOS off of that so you can reflash it.

yeah the not posting thing was probably because of a failed flash. i heard m flash was a goofy method

I had 890FX GD70 replaced over 790Fx GD70 (mosfet burn) by MSI. Now it got currupted too. Tried USB Flashing many time, bios was successfully flashed everytime. System starts but hangs at the time of booting. Now Its not detecting any boot devices Never had this type of problem before while blowing two 790fx gd70. After many days of testing it was not detecting any hdds. That was probably happening because of damaged Boot block (Boot rom, EEPROM). And I know we can flash system Rom (BIOS) but can't repair EEPROM in home.....I just throw it out of window, saved enough money till 3 months and bought Gigabyte UD5. Now I am happy.

I've heard the same thing. I went over to MSI forums and they have made a utility to flash it using DOS. Works flawlessly.

When you were trying to flash it, were you using M-flash? Quite possibly the reason for your failed flash. Also, couldn't you just replace the BIOS chip to take care of your EEPROM issue? Or save a BIOS to a thumbstick and run it off of that? Sounds like the actual BIOS chip might've went bad.
