How to use OC Genie 2 - no button on mobo
« on: 27-September-11, 20:22:32 »

Hello,
I just installed my P67A-C43. I've got an i5 2500k and want to enable the OC Genie 2 function. There is nothing about how to operate it in the documentation that came with the mainboard. Tutorial videos suggest that I simply push a button on the mainboard, but there is no such button on mine!
Any help would be appreciated...
Thanks!

Excerpt from mainboard description;

Instant OC
• Instant MB info monitor
• Intelligently auto set clock/voltage of CPU and memory
• Smart Mode: 4 instant OC modes

I believe you have to install Control Center. Possibly in the UEFI/BIOS, there is a setting to enable OC function in the Windows environment or OC Genie function.

The lower end boards do not have the physical button.
Check the BIOS. I believe its one of the functions inside the BIOS as HU16E has already eluded to.
OCGenie will give you a 4,2 GHz OC with very optimistic voltages and normally one would activate it once, then save that as a profile.
After that switch it off/deactivate it again. Start with defaults and the load that profile. From there you then start tweaking the BIOS to improve on it.
