[Overclocking Support Thread] MSI Z170A XPOWER GAMING TE


Recommended Posts

People having issues with FPT are going to hate me, but I just updated HOT XOC BIOS v2 in first page! :D

 

It fix bug with tCWL cannot go below 19 and tWRRD_sg/tWRRD_dg cannot go below 30 above 3799.

EDIT: Also add some loose profiles for max frequency on HyperX AFR (I didn't try them yet).

thank god I read this before I whiped that USB stick to try to make a xp install..

 

all my tinyXP disks are messed up when I try to use my z97 OCF and g3258 chip

 

and now that Tcwl is fixed maybe I can bin my e-die... so I can send last bit back for AFR

I'll try again. maybe with a different bios. since this is obviously hynix bias

actually a little harder on mfr than 1st hot bios but I guess it makes sense with non broken timings

 

I need to get some benching drives in order. my windows keys or ISOs are messed up

The tCWL/tWRRD_sg/tWRRD_dg issue was affecting all ICs, not only Hynix.

However, it only happened from 3733x101.81 (3800) and above, under this it was perfectly fine so you couldn't encounter this on MFR. ;)

hmm... I wonder why my on-the-fly c12 3100 @ 1.5, is reduced to 3000 with v2 then.... I just figured that the broken twcl made it loose enough to work at 3100 or 3200 on v1... wierd

maybe I tuned the wrong preset...

 

well I guess I will just try hot v2 bios for ambient e-die binning

 

 

 

Still some issues but its coming along much better

C12-20. 4000mhz is working now

 

Seems left slots suck for single stick binning on this board as well. I know its like that on asrock but as soon as i popped stick into dimm c it started going much better.

binning a good dual channel. when I tried to plug in my other stick I was binning to match I ended up getting bad problems

even single slot its failing a few loops in

 

only other real problem is auto vccio and vccsa go to 1.35 or 1.3v which I am pretty sure is super high

NON-K OC Test BIOS updated in first page :celebration:

 

1. BIOS is M-flash ready.

2. EIST, C-State and Turbo Boost feature are all DISABLED in this BIOS.

3. When doing BCLK OC with non-K CPU, CPU ratio can only go up to maximum CPU ratio (non-Turbo Boost ratio) and you can’t downgrade CPU ratio.

4. Please adjust CPU Vcore voltage manually.

msi bios for Z170 gaming M7 will also be a non-k

 

Yes, at a later date.

Only models with external clockgen can support it though, which means Z170A GAMING G45/M5/M7/M9/XPOWER.

 

Any problems going over 120?

 

Not at all.

 

120 is a Pepi limitation, not the board :D

 

More like R&D didn't bother to try much higher and I don't have any locked CPU around to try myself [emoji14]

How about H110 and B150 motherboard? Z170 are very expensive and not that interesting for o\c Pentium\Core i3.

As far as I know NON-K CPU OC support on MSI motherboards is limited to the models I mentioned in the post above, for technical reasons explained above.

It's not a problem, it's for compatibility and still within Intel specs. Above 3733 many CPUs need that much, if yours need less then just adjust it manualy.

 

4266 XMP is not supported and probably never be. As far as I know this kit is only supported by ASROCK Z170 OCF and mini ITX boards due to PCB trace layout.

All other boards regardless of manufacturer stop at G.Skill 3866/Corsair 4000. However, note that I didn't say you couldn't reach 4266 OC, Toppc actually did 4600 dual channel validation on XPOWER. ;)

I see.

 

Wasnt talking about xmp sadly. On my ocf i was doing c12 4000@ 1.84v now i cant get it to pass at all

@BenchBros did this some time ago, before tCWL/tWRRD_sg/tWRRD_dg were fixed... As far as I know its also ok with HOT v2.

Just got some long awaited E-Die (G.Skill Trident Z 3866), I will give it a try as well, but not before next year, it's vacation time now.
