MSI P67A-GD55 Review and OC guide - Page 18

post #171 of 627
My computer rebooted overnight while running blend test (4.6 GHz @ 1.3 V). So I should just up the voltage a bit? Also, you said to not go over 1.45 V, since MSI goes a little over with LLC should my highest core voltage setting be 1.4 V? Or is 1.45 V when load is idle?

Yes, just bump it up by 0.01V
It depends purely on what you think is safe. I would keep even load Vcore below 1.4 V for 24/7 use.

Alright, thanks again. Although I think 4.6 GHz seems good enough for now.

Is realtemp 3.67 accurate with the clockspeed that it shows? Right now as I type this, it shows my cpu hovering between 3500 - 4400 mhz. But running a different app that can monitor like aida shows my clockspeed at 1600, though it sometimes jumps to 4500 when there's slight activity like minimizing and maximizing the aida64 window.

Is it because I disabled C1E? I used to have that on, but disabled it just yesterday to see if it would have any effect to my bluescreen problem and so far, my computer hasn't BSOD'ed on me yet.

No, I RealTemp doesn't read CPU speed properly.

My computer is stable when running stress tests and games, but randomly while word processing or watching a movie I get BSODs. I'm thinking its the mobo and I'm thinking of exchanging it since I'm almost out of time...anyone else have this problem (or solve it)? If it was more stable, I'd really like the board.

Yes, everyone with these boards have this problem, there's currently no fix. It's because your Vcore is too low at idle. Up it by ~0.02V to make it stable. If you feel it's a big problem, I'd get the board replaced. I can't promise that there'll be a fix soon (or at all).

That really sucks because its a great board otherwise. I bumped it .1, so that I'm up to 2.80 now. In bios it runs at 2.96, in CPU-Z between 2.80 and 3.20 depending on load.

It had been going down to about 2.7 at idle before, which I guess was a little low, but thought was ok since it was running at 1600mhz (idle). Should this be a little better now, or am I still a little low?

I hope those were typos, 'cause 3.2 V would fry an i5.

Yeah. I have no idea what I was looking at. CPU-Z says 1.28v idle 1.32v under load. I think bios had said 1.295v.
