hello

im seeking help with oc of 3930k or 3960x on this mobo

my best luck is semi stable 5ghz but with way to high v, 1,535

i know ram is very much connected to this matter, im using corsair gt DHX 2000 mhz(39x125mhz@1,5v = rock solid) and gskill ripjaws z 2133(48x102@1,536v)

have very solid cooling so temps shouldn't be issue at this speeds, would like to go as much over 5ghz as its possible

big thanks for any incoming tips:toast:

Not sure anyone here has one, and MSI neglected to send me one, although it was mentioned they would. :ohwell:

I wouldn't mind seeing some screenshots, and any tips you've got yourself?

Good luck!

I''m actually running on beta bios already, the official 1,2 allowed me to go for 4,8ghz only and unstable

ill keep trying, will post screens of bios when i will be satisfied enough with my result
