Voltage tuning items:

CPU Voltage 0.90000~2.10000V

CPU VTT 0.482~2.092V

PCH 1.8 0.200~2.400V

DRAM 0.930~2.430V

PCH 1.05 0.464~1.964V

CPU Feature

C1E is a power saving function for the CPU to slow down its speed when it is in light loading.

The new model has more functions; C-State is a new auto OC function.

After enabling the function, the Core i5-750 will automatically raise its speed to 133 X 22 =>2926Mhz.

OC Stepping, that means overclocking step by step.

As the picture shows, the start OC is 190Mhz. After entering OS, the speed raised to 200Mhz by every OC step in 2 secs.

if you set 5 steps, that means 2 secs is a time period, ex 190->192->194->196->198-200Mhz.

Users can save the setting and save the setting time.

This page provides 6 profiles for memory capacities.

200/2000 CPU is in 4GHz situation.

When overclocking, u need to adjust the voltage based on different devices.

Even the same type, Core i5-750, users need to check the stability by adding or deducting voltage because of the quality of CPU.

As we can see from the pictures above, after we enable the OC Genie function,

the performance of the CPU has been doubled and is much higher than using the Turbo Boost function only.

This is really good news for those who don

P55-GD80 has a great performance on the voltage ratio under the 200/2000 settings.

This time, msi overclocking feature gives me a brand new feeling.

Compare to the experience of using mainboards of msi,

there were always some minor problems or the overclocking performance of the memory wasn
