  1. My ES are same stepping than retail so no difference. Furthermore these CPU don't have BCLK unlocked with normal BIOS... However I will try to find a retail i3 to show you it works perfect here.
  2. Added BETA BIOS 133 in first page. Major changes are: - Update Hardware Monitor - Fix some issues with ADATA AX4U2666W8G16-BR V1 memory - Fix two 295x2 VGA cannot enter OS. - Modify some DRAM timing and setting for Kingston Hynix AFR chip memory.
  3. Wait few days, I'll post a quick guide for Non-K OC. "Unlimited restart" (00-19-FF-Reboot in loop) happen on motherboards without external clockgen (Only Z170A GAMING M5/M7/M9/XPOWER include external clockgen) whenever OC fails/crash. You have to clear CMOS and turn OFF your PSU until motherboard is discharged to get it back to normal. Sometimes this issue is still present afterwards when you try to overclock BCLK, which in my case was the Intel ME firmware corrupted and re-flash BIOS via M-Flash fixed it.
  4. No official support from either Intel or MSI and no further development from our side so far. Absence of power management is indeed one of the technical limitations that all Non-K BIOSes share, regardless of vendor. It will (most likely) never be fixed, sorry.
  5. Interesting... I'll have to test that! Thanks for your feedback anyway and enjoy your clocking!
  6. First try to keep your settings as it was and increase SA/IO up to 1.35v. Also enable BIOS option "Enhanced Memory Controler" and see what happens. As vdelvec mentioned, try to flash latest MP BIOS available (120) or latest BETA BIOS (131).
  7. What do you mean about "SA Offset"? You already asked similar question about Ring voltage: And I already answered :
  8. You can't ONLY setting bclk with those BIOS you will also have to set up memory frequency and vcore manually!
  9. I had the new Z170A GAMING PRO CARBON laying around for some marketing stuff and I figured I'll give it a small shot as well. Maxed the CPU to 4.6GHz and memory at DDR4-3554: FYI, with Loadline Calibration enabled and 1.4v set in BIOS, vCore in idle was 1.377v. vCore under Prime95/OCCT load was 1.381v (+0.004v) all measured with Digital Voltmeter on PWM resistor. It is also on par with the KRAIT GAMING motherboards and the Z170A-G43 Plus I've posted in previous post. Max BCLK Straight Outta BIOS on Z170A GAMING PRO CARBON (no external clockgen on this board): http://valid.x86.fr/5vk7r5 Max BCLK Straight Outta BIOS on Z170A GAMING M5 (with external clockgen): http://valid.x86.fr/cr64m8 Nice and cheap GAMING boards for 24/7 setups.
  10. You mean you need more volts to pass 32M than to boot right? So far, I only tested two kits of B-Die very quickly as I needed to return those same day I got them. Both kits could pass 32M at 3866 12-12-12-28-220-1T with auto subs. Both kits needed about 1.82v to POST and load WinXP. For 32M, G.Skill TridentZ needed 1.88v while Geil Dragon needed 1.92v. Here is a dirty 32M I did then (Don't blame me for the eff, it's just a one shot on fresh untrimmed/untweaked XP, Lsc1, Maxmem, Waza, all subs auto besides tWR 16 and tREFI 65535):
  11. Those voltages exists on every X99 with "special socket" design but are named differently from vendor to vendor. Ring OC1/2 help with Ring OC, while DDR OC1/2/3 help with memory OC. For Ring OC, you only need to take care of vRing and Ring OC2 voltage. You don't need to change Ring OC1, AUTO will work fine as this voltage don't help past 0.95v. To improve stability at or above DDR4-3200 and/or for memory high frequency validations, just enable the "Enhanced Memory Controler" option in the BIOS, it will auto-adjust DDR OC1/2/3 for you (more volts don't seem to help). Below is the BIOS auto-rule for Ring OC that I had posted 3-4 pages ago in this thread, it might help you. FYI, up to 1.45v 24/7 has been fine for me since Haswell-E launch until now, you would be surprised to know how high some other boards auto-set these "special socket" voltages! What ram, what settings? Too little info to help you here.
  12. The purpose of LGA2036 Turbo Socket (as well as any other "special" X99 socket design) is not to help Core OC, but only to help Ring OC! LGA2036 Turbo Socket DOES make a difference in Ring OC only. For instance, motherboards without Turbo Socket cannot overclock Ring past 3.7~3.8GHz while motherboards with Turbo Socket can go up to +4.5G on air/+5.2G on Ln2. If you setup a fan profile from Command Center, it can only be loaded in OS when software is launched. To setup a fan profile that would be applied at all time, you need to make it through Hardware Monitor in BIOS.
  13. I don't know what is your issue, I tested B5T and A6T on Z170 KRAIT GAMING, both worked without any issue, so it must be something you doing... All you have to do is to flash B5T Set up max CPU ratio Set up BCLK Set up RAM frequency Set up CPU vCore accordingly That's all...
  14. HOT is based on 143, no change for MFR/D-Die/E-Die/B-Die it only improve AFR. 3866 1T with E-Die is easy here but for 4000 I have to boot at 99MHz bclk then +4100 is fine. Same for 3866 with B-Die, need to boot 99MHz.
  15. Not sure why the date isn't the same, anyway here is the file I used to flash the Z170 KRAIT GAMING (uploaded from my USB dongle): http://we.tl/kydog6UPbK
  16. Download again, it has been updated. I checked and B5T is present in the link.
  17. B5T I use is from the link of this thread... Envoyé de mon GT-I9500 en utilisant Tapatalk
  18. I've been playing with the Non-K OC BIOS for XPOWER. 400MHz BCLK straight outta BIOS, all aircooled. 1.35v PLL OC / 1.65v ST / 1.65v ST V6. http://valid.x86.fr/qp0h6l
  19. @qihei I tested all the motherboards I have on hand, no issue with any of the BIOS versions used. Z170 KRAIT GAMING - BIOS B5T - Cinebench R15 @4.56G Z170 KRAIT GAMING - BIOS B5T - OCCT @4.4G Z170 KRAIT GAMING - Flashed with BIOS A6T for Z170A KRAIT GAMING - Cinebench R15 @4.56G Z170A KRAIT GAMING - BIOS A6T - Cinebench R15 @4.56G Z170A KRAIT GAMING R6 SIEGE - BIOS 11T - Cinebench R15 @4.56G Z170A KRAIT GAMING R6 SIEGE - BIOS 11T - OCCT @4.4G Z170A-G43 PLUS - BIOS 33T - Cinebench R15 @4.56G Z170A-G43 PLUS - BIOS 33T - OCCT @4.4G Z170A-G43 PLUS - BIOS 33T - Prime95 @4.4G Z170A GAMING M7 - BIOS 19T - 400MHz Baseclock straight outta BIOS
  20. Any kit validated on the QVL list means it passed more than 100% Memtest with stock settings and XMP profule. I will check what BIOS version was used for this and will test both kits for you next week. Envoyé de mon GT-I9500 en utilisant Tapatalk
  21. I'm curious to know who at MSI told you that, as this person clearly don't know what he (or she) is talking about. MSI proprietary LGA2036 Turbo socket is available and active on X99A GODLIKE GAMING, X99A GODLIKE CARBON, X99A XPOWER AC and X99A GAMING 9 ACK. MSI currently does not produce any other model that include Turbo Socket. The LGA2036 Turbo socket provide extra voltages (Ring OC1/OC2, DDR OC1/2/3) for Haswell-E CPUs that allow to overclock Ring above ~3.8GHz and improve memory overclocking. Turbo socket has nothing to do with Broadwell-E CPUs and don't help OC on current ES samples. Broadwell-E will be fully supported by current X99 motherboards and new upcoming X99 boards such as the X99A GODLIKE CARBON won't bring any improvement in terms of OC. P.S: I'm from MSI Headquarters in Taiwan and all info above come from our R&D.
  22. If the board does not have an external clockgen, 170MHz is about the max you can get.
  23. @Lawrence both memory kits you mention are officialy supported and validated on our QVL list: http://www.msi.com/product/motherboard/support/X99A-GODLIKE-GAMING.html#support-ocmem They should work flawlessly with XMP profile without changing any other settings. What BIOS version are you currently using?
