MSI P67A-GD80/GD65/GD55/GD53 Owners Club/Discussion/Info Thread - Page 163

post #1621 of 1895
Hey guys I have been looking at motherboards for while now and have looked at tons of reviews..This might be a dumb question - But I am between the GD65 and GD80... which one would be better for the long run? I know a lot of guys in here one or the other..so answers may vary. I am on a little bit of a budget and not looking to spend more than $190 on a mobo. I plan to run SLI and looking to keep it running cool as well (bought a cpu cooler already) Gaming and video editing will be taking place as well. The difference in the GD65 and GD80 I saw was another x16 PCI 2.0 and I know the GD65 only has 1 USB header.

In my opininion the GD80 does not have enough added features to justify the added cost unless you absolutely need the extra USB header

I have somewhat of a noob question.

Everyone says not to go over a certain voltage (say 1.45 or so) because it will damage the processor. Exactly what is it that damages it???? Is it the high voltage itself or is it because the higher voltage results in higher temps both in idle and in load and the heat degrades the processor??

The reason why i´m asking is because I need to use alot more voltage to oc at 4,5. I´m using 1.36 v. I´ve tried less voltage but cant run prime95 for very long before errors starts to pop up.

My temps are around 28-33c idle and after more than an hour in prime about 70c.

So even though I would like to get either lower voltage or higher oc at the voltage I´m now using everything is running fine. Just wondering if its harmfull in the long run??

1.36v is a bit high for 4.5, like I can hit 4.9 with that much Vcore. Your load temps are also high for that OC so check the cpu cooler.

It's both. Voltage kills and heat kills.

Hey guys I own a P67A-GD53 and a 2500k. I've had the 2500k overclocked to 4.2ghz since I got the two, which has been for a month now, and I decided to try for 4.5ghz just last night. It's stable right now at 1.264v and I bumped it up to 1.3v to try for 4.5. It wouldn't post at that voltage so I tried it again all the way to 1.35v moving up in 0.05v increments, but still no post. Even at 1.35v shouldn't it at least post and let me into windows?(of course stability is another story altogether) I'm not sure if this a chip problem or mb but seeing as I can't even get my system to post at 4.5ghz, maybe it might be my mb? I'm using the BIOS version that came with it which is v1.10 according to CPU-Z. I've been thinking that maybe a BIOS update would help in overclocking, or do I have a chip/mb problem?

Did you enable Internal PLL Overvoltage? If so, did you try using "auto"?
