Z68A-GD80 (G3) multiplyer issue.
« on: 11-September-11, 02:35:38 »

I am having trouble keeping the Multiplier set. when I go above 48X say like 49 or 50 or 51 system boots but when I apply load to cpu the multi down clocks to 48x.If I use 48x or less then under load it stays where it is set.
When i first set up the board it has bios 18.1, now I have 18.4 The shipped bios did not seem to have this issue.
I need to find setting in bios to fix this issue.here are some screen shots.

Recommend to reflash to the version that was working correctly & notify MSI Tech Support of what you have experienced with those other versions; http://support.msi.com/

Don't believe a setting exists that will fix this. It will require a completely new version release from the engineers.

Unfortunately I do not have any bios versions other than the 2 listed on there download page

Another aspect I noticed is when using the default setting in the bios the turbo boost feature is only going up to 3.5 instead of 3.8 so some basic setting needs adjusted in the bios defaults to correct this.


Other than a few small issues this board works good and seems much improvement over the other 2 companys boards I used.

Have a look in the 'OC' UEFI Section, 'CPU Features', & see how the 1 through 4 Core Ratio's are set up.

Added: What is your complete system comprised of? :think:

2nd add: MSI Tech Support should be able to send you a 18.1 to flash back to; http://support.msi.com/

So I flashed back to 18.3 and confirmed that the turbo boost is still only working up to 3.5 using default settings in bios.I also confirmed that 47x is the highest multi that does not throttle back under load.

Please keep the forum updated when Tech Support responds. Hopefully reverting back to version 18.1 solves it. Unless a newer revision offers any benefit to your current system configuration, there is no real point in flashing it.
