Cool! Two things I'd like to ask other owners. The voltage CPU-Z reports is higher than the voltage I set in the bios - is that common for our board? Also I'm running at 99.8mhz for my bus speed instead of an even 100. I'm thinking I'll just adjust it in the bios to try and compensate but I thought it was a bit odd.

I've had good luck with this board so far - I'm running my 2600k at 4.8ghz with 1.34v (1.35 according to CPU-Z) and it's very stable.

Hi can I ask what your settings are? I can't get past 4.3GHz on my 2500k @ 1.35 vcore. I haven't changed much though except for vcore and PLL. I'm not real sure what safe VTT voltage is for these chips, I just know I should stay @ 1.35 vcore or below.

Also the latest bios I found on the MSI site is 1.7- where did you guys get the other ones?

I'm not at home so I can't double check but I think all I changed was the Multi, vCore, enabled PLL (was set to auto), disabled EIST and forced memory to 1600. I'll look again once I get home to see if I changed anything else.

can owners list on here what should be on and should not be on while overclocking with this board?


Thanks

Alrighty, rig is built, just need to start overclocking this bad boy

so far what i changed in bios right away:
- Sata Controller's (both) to AHCI mode
- boot options to boot of the ssd only

hit the OC Genie button, running @ 4.2 ghz with ~ 1.368v Vcore
ram has changed to 7-8-7-24 @ 1600 mhz

CPU-Z:

Ooh, I was wondering how that function would turn out. Seems like a pretty conservative OC. Nice timings on the RAM though.

thats where the extra 5 bucks pays off

im debating getting a second kit to be honest. just to have it..

i still havent found a decent oc guide for our boards, and i have read horror stories about ssds burning out due to overvolting too much ... im kinda curious in how high i can get this thing on water, but would not like to risk my ssd on it.

heres a short overclocking result on rev-ing up the gpu today:

max temp 81C

Thinking about getting this board. Whats the difference between the GD55 and the GD65? Also, why have people changed the SATA controllers to AHCI mode?

GD55 has 2x 6.0Gb/s SATA ports, GD65 has 4.

Is that all the differences?

Well the 65 also has 2 eSATA ports, but considering both come with 4 USB3.0 slots it seems kinda pointless imo.
