    I just got a MSI P55-CD53 motherboard with an i3-530 and can't seem to get the voltage options to work. When I go to the bios page the options for voltage adjustments are greyed out. Have the latest bios installed.


    Any ideas?

    By any chance, is the oc Genie button pushed in? I've never used my oc genie button, but from what I can see, off the bat, is that it may lock down certain things in bios due to the board doing "everything" it self..

    I'm not 100% on that factor, I'll search threw your manual some more, but that's what I can see just off glance..

    BTW, welcome to TPU and if you can, please fill out your "system Specs" so we can help you in this thread, or in future threads.


    :toast:


    Just tried oc genie, for the first time. I'm right on.. if you have oc genie, there will not be any manual volt changing in "cell menu"

    Reason for it, the board is trying to oc for you. so, if you try yourself, you may lower it, and cause the system to be unstable. the chip won't know what to do and thus oc chip, could go out on you, and even corrupt the bios chip itself.

    So, if that little blue button is on, oc genie, turn it off, and have at it in bios.. I'm locked out using it, and stuck now, till a download finishes again, at 3.5.. using the volts I use at 4ghz.. lol.

    Thnaks for the welcome. I usually hang out at overclockers but i have posted here before

    Unfortunately in my case it makes no difference whether the OC genie is on or off. I'm using a i3-530 and just wonder if that may make a difference since the CD53 wasn't originally intended for the i3-530 and needs a bios update. It's definitely not my first day at the rodeo as far as OC'ing so I wouldn't have even had used the OC genie except that it seems to be the only option.

    I am considering going from Bios 1.6 to 1.5 just for the fun of it in a day or two

    System Specs are updated
