If you want good overclocking board, go with Biostar. I know MSI is a Failure lately. I didnt like their X58 line up. They had so much problem there too. Best brand is Asus, but my asus 890FX board just died without even doing overclocking.

For some reason, i have faith in MSI. Just bough it again after finding it for $140shipped on forums. To be hones, my asus C4F just died, i didnt even like it as much as ii liked this board.

Just to be sure: Have you ever tried to raise only CPU V, and confirmed the change in the monitoring screen in the BIOS after reboot? If there is no change, it is certainly a flaw.

I can change the CPU Voltage value to whatever I want, and the change will stick in that Cell menu page(meaning if I set it to 1.5v, it will stay 1.5v until I change it back), but anything that reports actual core voltage(including BIOS monitoring) will still read the default 1.375v. The only way to change the core voltage is to adjust the CPU VDD Voltage.

Here is one thing I noticed with this mobo.

Change it to 1.4 for the VDD (its the max? for Thuban according to recommendations).

Increase your CPU voltage after that. You'll notice that its default "Auto" value is what you set the VDD to.

And also, do not forget:

If you are setting your voltage, and the gauges in your software are reporting the wrong thing, DO NOT just walk into BIOS and move the VDD up. Moving that UP moves the CPU voltage UP, causing you to overheat and more than likely fry many things.

That's a newb check, but I figured I would mention it either way.

So... 2 settings to worry about.

CPU VDD > Set to a low setting (if you're stable at 1.45, set at 1.425 and move CPU voltage to 1.45)

I promise I wasn't paying attention and had this same issue, but when I moved the VDD up, I saw the CPU voltage setting go up and that could have done a number on my hardware. I changed the voltage back to Auto, and I haven't had problems. My only problem now is probably the memory.

So far, my specs:

300 FSB
1055T at 4.05 GHz (13.5 multi)
2700 MHz CPU-NB frequency (9 multi)
2100 MHz HTT frequency (7 multi)
4GB (2x2) Geil DDR3 @ 1600 MHz (its 2133 MHz memory, I am experimenting)

2.522 PLL voltage
1.275 CPU-NB VDD

So far so good, RMA'ed a Sapphire 5850... man those have problems ya?

Put new thermal paste on mosfets, but think I have to re-do this. They do get way too hot.

I'm running a Sapphire 5830 and love it so far, but the temps are a little high for my liking...I mean, they're not bad, but I'm just picky so I'll probably upgrade the thermal compound.

As for CPU VDD and CPU Voltage...I have to set my CPU VDD to what I want my core voltage to be, while leaving the CPU Voltage set to auto. I hate how this works, I don't know if it's a safety feature or a flaw.

This is a flaw. I never would regulate the voltage that way. I am increasingly convinced that this is what burns these MBs.

i am trying to contact with some one from MSI. May be they can give us some information, so we can do better overclocking with better stability.
