MSI X79 BIG BANG X POWER II OC
« on: 18-October-19, 10:37:07 »

OK,

So instead of starting a new thread I'll keep this one - But there is a change of topic but based on the same board.

I've OC'ed several CPU's now on Asus motherboards but I have several MSI boards as well - So now it is time to OC a CPU with this board.  The CPU to be OC'ed is Xeon E5 2687 W_0 - I've been lucky to be able to get some of these now the prices have tumbled considerably.  After this CPU I'll be OC'ing a 4930 K (Ivy Bridge)__

I do know it is a BCLK OC btw and not a traditional ratio x multiplier OC !!!

OK, I'm stuck on one aspect - which is to get the x38 multiplier to show when I do a Passmark Performance Test in V9.0.  Other apps I use are Core Temps, AIDA 64 Engineer & ??? - So far I've only been able to see the x34 multiplier.

>>>Please not this is my 1st OC on an MSI board so please be patient (I do have a good idea how to get a good OC)__but a little help is needed - Even if it is to point out that something is not technically possible on a certain motherboard and or CPU.

I've seen the three modes for OC >>> Eco, Standard & OC Genie - I've also seen the options in "My OC Genie" where the voltages can be altered - So right now I'm trying to correlate the differences between what I learned on Asus motherboards with the MSI way of doing things and hopefully in a day or two I'll have covered some bases which enables me to move on with the OC.

a 360 mm Corsair H150i will be used on my test bench (usually I'm on air)__OK, please explain which setting in the BIOS is responsible to enable the x38 multiplier which is available on E5 2687 W_O_turbo

PS_I've experimented with turbo and EIST and C-States - (I've not seen C3 states on this board).

Split this post off for a new thread. Has nothing to do with the original topic.

Are you trying to oc with software or via bios?

ok next time I'll start a new thread and try to get it in the correct place.

I'll be clocking in the BIOS - I've spent a while experimenting as I can be slow on the uptake sometimes to understand things.  I see OC Genie is a special tool to OC from the motherboard and can be controlled in the BIOS or from the motherboard - From the motherboard it locks the screen in the BIOS - which could be useful possibly.  I 've also seen the core voltage gets bumped up considerably for an overclock on the motherboard direct OC - I've not tried this yet but will try it after I get the manual OC done.

I was a total newbie at OC'ing before the few Asus OC's that have been completed - All manually done.

I've seen the options__***EIST_(Intel_Speed_Step)__and ***Turbo Technology 2__these seem to have to be enabled to get the higher multipliers__and also__***C States need to be enabled as well to get the higher multipliers.

Yesterday at some point in the "standard OC" window I did manage to get the x38 multiplier to make an appearance but I forgot how I did this.

Apart from the parameters above are there any other options that need to be enabled or disabled to get the max. multi.?
