voltage settings are no longer taking hold. no matter what the FSB is set to, it won't save. emailed MSI about it and their reply was to install ver.2.0.0.5, which is what i already have. any ideas? thx

I've given up with core centre, didn't personally see the point of it.

I make the changes in the BIOS, and use everest to monitor settings when in windows.

I used CC at first when OCing my 3500+ but sometimes it would keep the settings.. and sometimes it wouldn't. I ended up using CC AFTER I upped my voltages in the BIOS to "nudge" my FSB up to 2.4Ghz. Then I went into BIOS and inputed the settings there. So far it has worked great and I am rock stable.

Also when I boot CC up the fan on my main proc cooler (xp120) gets super quiet for a sec then ramps back up. Made me a bit nervous. So for the most part I boot it up when I want an instant check on fan speeds and CPU/ NB temps but other than that I don't have much use for it.

my 2 cents.

Not worth the time it took to come up with the software. Total crap IMHO. Use the bios and download Everest Ultimate edtion not the professinal, And it will do a better job of telling the temps etc.

I've noticed that I can't change the CPU Voltage on my motherboard (MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum) most likely because my CPU (AMD Athlon 64 4000+ San Diego) has variable voltage. If I do alter the voltage, the CPU multiplier often drops to 5x (1.1 GHz effective instead of 2.4 GHz). If your processor has variable voltage, you might not be able to manually adjust it.

heard back from MSI. their suggestion: to power down then run CC *shoots self in head* now why didn't i think of that. run a prog on a shut down rig. i suspect what they REALLY mean is to not have it load with XP and run it seperately

Did you clear and reset the BIOS AFTER you flashed the newer version? For monitoring the system I use motherboard monitor 5. The CPU temp is installed in my task bar and my fans and system temps show as tool tips. It can also be configured to show voltage.

no BOIS flash. tryin to use a MSI overclocking utility that doesn't load the o/c when it starts with windows or if manually started desPITE what MSI tech says

edit: uninstalled core center and o/c'd thru the BIOS up to 2.3ghz for now

wellp, changed a coupla setting in the BIOS and for the last few days core center has been holding it setting just fine. got it up to 2.3ghz with a bit of room to grow

edit: this is from Grayone on MSI board:

Turn off dynamic overclocking so that you can use manual settings. Disable spread spectrum and enable pci-dimm clock. The rest of the adjustments (mem and fsb) can be made as necessary. Good luck!

I found that the MSI core center is a good way to test Clock speeds before setting them in the BIOS and having to restart to overclock a bit more. With Core Center i have learned that I cant go above 3.3Ghz with my current setup.

3.3, not too shabby. won't see that on mine, but the bus can hit 184. got it up to 2.33 on a 179 bus

I think most of you are having a issue with AMD Cool N Quiet not MSI OCC.When enabled in bios or set as automatic it will wreak havoc on your readings and settings.Because most times when inside a OC program your system is nearly idle.CNQ will have your system downshifted which will show lower voltage and cpu multipliers in OC software.If you want to see yourself at max settings all the time? You need to dissable CNQ in bios.
But understand people. CNQ is awsome.Who needs the full speed of there CPU to open a web page? email? chat? java game? CNQ downshifts you then.Soon as there is a demand CNQ upshifts you into your max settings.CNQ saves power and cools your system thus the name "cool n quiet" If your running win7 you may also want to go to control panel,system and security,power options and then change from balanced to "high performance"
