Windows 7: Motherboard and CPU compatibility

Well the big issue is my mobo is designed for 125w chips and yours is only 95w. Notice the core voltage differences. I believe your mobo is throttling the multiplier back and I'm afraid if you boost the multiplier then maybe something will let loose. I'm still mystified that the system boot and runs with a 125w chip in a 95w board.

Hey, I had Cool n Quiet enabled that's why it showed the multiplier at 4. I took a screengrab so you can check it out. It's still running fine.

jago86,
That's great but I still can't explain how you're getting away with this....it seems like you should have run into many more issues but you're not so count yourself very lucky. I still think that any push or overclock without reaching out to MSI directly and getting their opinion would be a major risk. So for now just run the rig and keep asking questions and maybe someone deeper in the know with hit you back.
Here you go, I would reach out to them for more info......but in the end your rig is running good !

Thank you!

I called but all they said is that it wasn't supported.

I'm looking to get a AM3+ MSI board 900 series with a 8 FX.

Anyways thanks again! Peace.

When you get the 900 and FX hit us back with pictures as many of us are running that combo and you'll be very pleased. Look into sealed water cooling so you can explore a modest OC and still keep cool !
