2500k won't clock past 4.3 - Page 2

post #11 of 26
Try turning on PLL Overvoltage to enabled from auto.

Also, you don't want to disable vdroop control, as that will give lots of droop. But the setting needed is either high vdroop or low vdroop or no vdroop, but I don't know what that setting correlates to for results on that board. Which ever one stops the idle voltage from being like 0.08v higher than the load voltage, because the load voltage dropping too much causes stability problems.

Still no go....set everything listed. I just don't know if I can push the board far enough.

The max voltage setting in the bios is 1.35 however as you can see CPUz lists it as 1.328...but that also bounces from 1.328 to 1.336 over and over no matter if the VDROOP is set to High or Low(only 2 settings)

I've got it running at 4.4 right now so I'm going to prime it for a while, but it seems as tho 4.4 may be all it can handle.

The Control Center software was not designed for this board apparently. It will change the clock on the processor, but does not change the voltage.

Which really sucks, because my idle temps are barely at 32 and my load temps are 58 so I've definitely got plenty of room to play with

what did you change to get it to 4400MHz?

I paid even less for my board and I only have 4-phase, so that isn't the issue. It may be just the board itself...see if you can RMA with NewEgg for another board? I really like this little $114 board that I ended up with. The only thing I had to change was a Bios Flash and then increase Vcore a little, LLC, turn off all power saving features, and increase multi...VOILA!!! I'm sitting pretty at 4.5ghz

hmm, ya I'll check with newegg.

I didn't change anything to get to 4.4..I thought I had it stable before it started to bsod today, had to back it down again. It's got to be the board

I could have missed it, but did you flash to the newest BIOS?

It may just be best to get another board. Clearly, unless you have the worst cpu known to man, that board was probably just meant to be run at stock, with just a small boost (to 4 ghz or so).

I doubt that motherboard was meant to run at just 4300MHz.

I have the same board. I'm running at 4000MHz right now with the stock fan. I have a H50 sitting around that I will install in a few days and I'll report back.

Surely you know what I mean, don't you?
The power regulation on that board just isn't made to handle pushing high clocks.
Why do you think the maximum vcore is limited to 1.35v? Some around here need 1.4v just for 4.5 ghz...

I mean, for Christ's sake, that board only has a 4 pin CPU power connector! No wonder the vcore is so limited....you'd probably blow out a mosfet or scorch the connector trying to LinX AVX at 1.5v on it at 5 ghz'ish...and how much do you think it cost MSI to put on a 4 pin connector instead of an 8 pin found on all higher up boards? Fifty cents less?

well, it is a very cheap board. I see very few people with them. I'll post my results soon.
