can you guys tell me what is the limit for OC on this mobo?
It depends. All motherboard, even of the same make and model will have very different max OCs. It depends on cooling, power, how much power your system demands, how clean the power is in your home, and a multitude of other things.
And I assume you mean the K9A2 Platinum, right?
Neoseeker managed 270. Just google some reviews on it and click to the "overclocking" page.
The CF board has 2 slots and less cooling. Tis the nice budgety board. I've long wondered how far a 5000BE would go on that board.
i can get my 5000+BE at 3ghz only..
higher than that = crash
PCI-e bus locked? or set manually to 100...
Only you can answer that question through experimentation with your hardware. There isn't really any way we can help you with vague questions like that, any suggestions we give would be a shot in the dark. If you have any specific questions it will make it easier for us to help you and, perhaps, get you better results. Even telling us what you have done so far would go a long way.
i just wanna know is anyone else use this board?
Same CF board and 5000 Blackie, 3100 stable. I have my Abit KN9 SLI with another 5000 Blackie and steady at 3200.
Maybe if I could figure how to raise the Voltage I could get more on the MSI. I also have a MSI K9A2 Platinum with a stock speed 6400 Blackie. Still I am happy with these two MSI's
now my board dont even POST in dual channel
I expect you are having Ram problems, Download the latest version of Memtest 86+ and test one stick at a time for at least a full cycle and then try the same stick in another slot and repeat, eventually try all slots with the other stick and finally both sticks together. The other possibility would be the PSU....
What power supply are you using? You could of reached it's limit. Please fill out all of your system specs.
Dude i have the same board with a 5000+ OC 3.3GHZ 1.45v 16.5X / 4-4-4-12 2.0v|
i don't think your ready overclock, u need a overclocking guide to help u out, cause that mobo u got is not bad at all the vcore goes to 1.750v ram at 2.5v, i was going to buy it over my GA-MA770-DS3, now looking back i should of, my vcore tops 1.650v, ram voltage only 2.1750v which blows, should of done my home work first, but the point is had i ran my blackie on 2 different boards fastest a got was 3.3ghz with GA-MA770-DS3 at 1.650v, m2n sli deluxe, 3.250ghz 1.567v, iam sure u can get higher with that mobo good luck
sorry fitseries dont get ya
that machine uses the board in question here. they have a phenom on it along with 4 9800gx2's. it scores 32k in 3dm06 at stock clocks.
