If you're not happy with 4.5Ghz, no reason to not push it higher. I'm always trying to find ways to get 5.0Ghz stable with as low vcore as possible, but I'm hitting either the limitation of my chip, or motherboard. (or both) Your temps didn't look bad at all either imo. (I'd just try to stay under 80º under P95 - nothing else you do will stress it as hard as benchmark software, so you have some wiggle-room)

Well, I just wanted to explain why I've written about 1/4th of all posts since page 30

Anyway, goodnight to y'all.

I really don't know how all these people are achieving stability at such low voltages. I have the p67a-gd55 with the 2500k and I just had to bump my machine up to 3.355v @ 4.5ghz. I keep thinking I'm stable but sure enough in idle (never in prime95) I get a BSOD or just a lockup. 3.355v seems to be very stable but I'm not going to bump it up any higher, if I have to I'll drop the multiplier to 4.4ghz, something I really don't want to do. I'm jealous of all the 4.8ghz OCers but if I could stay stable at 4.5ghz I'd be content.

And in case you're wondering, I started with B!ohazard's guide and worked from there. I also tried bit-tech's guide but was a little freaked out by some of their recommendations that seemed to run in direct opposition to what B!ohazard has said (system agent voltage recommendations, for example). I was also having a BSOD problem with my Creative X-fi Xtremegamer Card which wasn't playing nice with the Realtek drivers, giving me 0x00000124 BSOD errors. I looked it up and it seems to be an audio issue, and tried disabling the onboard HD audio. That seems to be working. However, it's also possible that it's the x-fi card itself, since I've never had a lockup of that nature running on the onboard audio.

A lot of information, I know! This is just my first real build and I'm having fun (and some frustration) feeling everything out.

WHOAA!! 3.35 volts(Get rid of that overclock right away) You'll kill that chip faster than you know it_

IF your running on 3.35volts V-CORE, thats just insanely dangerous_ (I'm not sure if I'm reading your post correctly, but thats how I'm looking at it)

Don't be jealous of 4.8ghz(You won't even feel a difference) I see people running 5.0ghz 24/7 or even at 4.8ghz 24/7, I just think its simply not viable enough to run at those speeds 24/7, except for benchmarking purpose only =]

goddammit haf now you make me wanna go higher again, to get to 4.8ghz, what would you recommend changing?

and when you say below 80 is that in realtmep, max temp for the 4 cores?

i saw that 3.35 volts too, that can't be right to get it to only 4.5 ghz, i've learned so far that 1.4v seems to be max for these chips...

Can't flash bios the way it is. Trying to do a dos flash tomorrow morning and will let u know. My board came with version 1.9 if that helps anyone figure out my problem

I think you mean 1.35v? 3.35 isn't even doable without seriously modding your motherboard.

I go by the highest core personally. To go higher, I just slowly bring up the vcore until she runs an IBT test at 5 passes. Then I move on to Prime 95 for 20 minutes, and finally I load up a game. The game (for some reason World of Warcraft is the most demanding!) is usually what tells me my OC is stable. Take your time, and you'll be there eventually!

1.9 is a pretty good BIOS. If flashing doesn't fix it, I'd contact MSI support and start thinking about an RMA. I don't remember what causes that problem, but I do remember reading about it somewhere on the MSI forums. Hopefully the flash fixes it!

MSI is the one who suggested dos bios flashing. im going to contact newegg tomorow as i still have 15 days left on return/rma

Just played with 4.7ghz settings a bit this morning and vcore fluctuation just sucks bigtime. i have now 1.330v at bios and in idle voltage is 1.312 but then loads to 1.348 with linx, it seems like more i add voltage bigger the difference gets beetween idle and load pff. I think it will be soon mobo change for me.



Next step is to run 6h+ P95 blend and if it passes then just normal use to test the idle stability.
