I can not get any overclocks past what the OC Genie will do @ 4.2. This is a very complex bios for me, it's been several years since i've built anything. I set my cpu core voltage @ 1.285 and multiplier @ 45 not touching the memory and it just won't boot. Am I missing something? It seems everyone else is hitting stable OCs at 4.5-4.7ghz. I'm running 16gigs or Gskill Trident X 2400mhz and running a Corsair H100i for cooling and idles at 29-24°C.
I would prefer a manual overclock over the Genie and would like to hopefully dial it in around 4.5-4.7ghz. This is a new board and I flashed to the 1.2 bios. Everything is a new high to ulta high end build at just over 3k with the video card and ssd.
Is there an OCing a msi xpower for dummies help forum? Maybe my CPU is just a crappy one.
I've followed the manual closely on overclocking yet with OC Genie disabled I can't get nowhere manually.
Any help or shared settings would be greatly appreciated.
