    Thanks for the WELCOME everyone and thanks "essenbe" for the link to the OC guide. I will give it a read later today BEFORE I start the OC process over AGAIN.

    Taking the unorthodox approach of adjusting the BCLK as I did finally caught up with me last night in the form of a corrupted BIOS. So I'll use a more standard approach this time around and see what I come up with.

    Trust me, I'm sure I will be buggin y'all for guidance very soon! Glad to be aboard!

    Bulldog, that guide works well. You look like you have an excellent CPU. You could go a long way with it. You really should change your system specs though. That guide won't help with a Core2Duo. , Here is another guide http://www.overclock.net/t/1291703/i...-motherboards# But, it's a very long read but there is a tremendous amount of info in the thread that follows the guide as well as the first one I gave. The first one really isn't a guide, but there is a lot to learn in the discussions.

    Really???

    Here are shots from Click Bios. I have everything pretty much on Auto except the Core voltage @ +.06. I do not have some of the other settings you have such as vdroop and digi something. I set my Bios like this and can boot at 4.6 at the highest, the other overclocks I have are software assisted with Intel Extreme Tuning Utility. I hope this helps you

    Sup Dude,

    If I attempt to use your BIOS settings on my system, I can boot up but as soon as I go to run any tests the system crashes. And the crashes are not consistent either, it can be as simple as just a system reboot or a BSOD that points towards a hardware or temperature issue. I think it's a low voltage issue to the CPU.

    With the BIOS architecture of this MSI board and the lack of proper access to adjust CPU voltages and setting I still cannot break the x43 barrier without getting to creative. And we see where that has gotten me!

    I haven't looked at the Intel XTU program yet. I hope to this weekend. I have to many doctors appointments this week, both here in Elko and Reno. I get to go do the Botox injections in my neck head and spine today. I am so NOT looking forward to that. SORRY, I drifted off track there. Anyways, if you would be so kind as to enlighten me as to WHICH setting you played with in XTU I would greatly appreciate that.

    Thanks Y'all,

    Mr. Bill

    I would be happy to, Bill, but I have never used the XTU that Dude has talked about. I have used an Asus Utility, but that's all. If you are searching for an everyday overclock, I seriously recommend you not use any software. Use the bios settings only, and only the ones you put in. The only time I use a tuning utility is when I'm 'playing', just seeing how high an overclock I can get with no intention of leaving it there. Whatever you do, you have to have sufficient cooling, as these chips do get hot.

    Dude can probably help you more with the MSI settings, but to me it sounds like you are having trouble with your Vdroop. I have my LLC set to Ultra High to avoid that, I think MSI calls it turbo. Just please understand, any advice on overclocking or overclocking in any way is taking a big risk. It puts a great deal of strain on the system as a whole. The best advice I ever got was, if you can't replace it, don't overclock it. From what little I know about MSI boards is your bios settings are rather limited compared to Asus boards. Just please understand it is a risk.

    Sorry to hear about your medical issues. I hope everything goes well for you. Trust me, I know very well about medical issues.

    LOL... I saw that and have made the changes... As you can see I joined way back in 2009 and never posted until now. I live my life like a mushroom, always in the dark and covered in pooh!

    The i5-3570k is a nice entry level CPU however just like "Dude", our choice of Mobo's leaves much room for improvement. Don't get me wrong, the MSI Z77MA-G45 is a cute board and it is my first exposure to an MSI product. I have always been an Asus fan. It is a good quality board that is just lacking in the OC adjustment area.

    Beggars cant be choosy. I needed a CPU and Mobo right at that moment and that's all I could afford. I haven't been disappointed. I've, never been into OC'ing but, once you peek under the covers at a beautiful woman it's to hard to walk away. Um, maybe that was a little to much but, you know what I mean!

    I understand completely. First thing you need to know about overclocking is, you don't have to be crazy, but it helps a lot. Second thing is, that woman you looked at can be very dangerous. Overclocking is too. I would spend a lot of time reading and understanding what each setting is and what it does. I also, at tis point, would leave your base clock alone. 100 Is enough. These CPUs are not like your last one. Just be careful and there are a lot of people that are more than willing to help here.

    Bill, your OC at 4.4 was a very good one. I only use the XTU for "fun runs" at a higher OC. I would never try to leave it clocked that high as it would melt my system. I have showed you the BIOS settings I use so let me explain how I used the XTU. First to use it you have to enable ocing in the os through your bios. When booted in it will run at stock speeds 3.4-3.8 ..I would have cpu-z open, have the validation window up and ready. Then I open XTU and adjust the additional turbo boost value up by about 250-300 millivolts. Then open command center, change the cpu ratio to a higher value. I started with 4.7 an worked up to 5.0 and higher. I would run super pi 1m to kick in the turbo. At 5.0- 5.2 I can run for a while, but the temps start to rise quick so I only do it long enough for validations.

    You have been seeking a stable OC, thats why I never mentioned the XTU. It may be fun for a benchmark, but is not for everyday use.

    As far as yours hitting 4.3 to 4.4 stable through BIOS compared to my 4.5 and 4.6, that is due to luck of the draw on chips, and possibly the power supply. I was running a corsair 550, but upgraded to a Seasonic X650 gold.

    Remember don't push it to far, if you see smoke you've gone to far.
