BoxDude said:Any more news on the state of 975x plat overclocking? I bought this board a week ago thinking it would be great, but I'm getting nervous now. Should be here tomorrow or tuesday. Ahhhh the suspense is killing me
Sc0ttFern said:OK, I am now having an F-ed up issue. I had 400FSB priming overnight fine, and when I turned my computer on today and it wouldn't boot. I had to reset CMOS and now when I make changes in the Cell Menu it won't stick?
I am running the 714B. No clue how to fix this?
Sc0ttFern said:I have a question regarding flashing the bios from 714 -> 715. I forgot to save optimized defaults before I flashed to 715. Could that be why my new settings are not sticking after I save?
BoxDude said:I've gotten up to 2.8 on my stock cooler. I'm really not sure how youre supposed to get an accurate temperature reading since every client I use says something different.
According to BIOS I'm at around 45C at idle but speed fan rarely goes over 40C when running superpi 32m. Should I try to go further? It's perfectly stable right now at stock voltage.
I forgot to mention that this is with the 7.0 bios that shipped with the board.
BoxDude said:What is your cpu running at? If windows says that it's what it should be with a 375 fsb then it should be fine.
Sc0ttFern said:God this can't possibly get anymore frustrating. I thought, what the heck, give it one more try. Go into bios...set voltages, vcore = 1.43v, vdimm = 2.3v, PCIeV = 1.5v and set FSB to 375. Loose timings 5-5-5-15 and see what I can do.
Initially, it wouldn't reboot, so I shut her down and unplugged PSU. Plugged everything back in, and IT BOOTS!!! Get into Windows, verify FSB and clock speed via CPU-Z and now its showing 267FSB. Why o why?
What is this weirdness? Please I am begging here MSI engineers. I need a better bios. This one is so weak.
annaconda said:There is 716 Beta Bios is out. I will post the link as soon as i get my hands on it. See if any one else find it. Please post the link, i will update the first thread.
annaconda said:Oh my God. Looks like i am done with this motherboard, the new bios still won't let me go over 375FSB. I did not played with it a lot. I just tried 400 but no picture, but computer boots and black screen.
y0bailey said:you are a tard. just upping the FSB isn't going to work. its called the art of overclocking for a reason. i cant just slap a FSB way over spec and expect it to work. its called voltage and timing tweaking.
people are hitting 425-450 fsb on these boards. so ask what you are doing wrong, not the board.
nullzero said:Annaconda im sick of hearing the complaining if you dont like the board go ahead return it. Nothing over spec is guranteed... but if you are looking for a motherboard with more potential and more features then anything on the market right now its the MSI 975X. MSI has been fast on the release of new bios and each release it gets better. I have been able to get 400 FSB perfectly stable on my e6600. I believe when they allow higher voltage on the vcore and options on the multi's this board will kick even more ass.
annaconda said:I am not quiting, i am trying to find the solution. Every one stay calmn and enjoy . I think you guys also agree with me, that no one was expecting that many problem from a $200 motherboard.
But any way back to the Motherboard Tweaking
