MSI Z68A-GD80 - PCSTATS.com MSI Z68A-GD80
Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 4:01PM | Filed under: Motherboards| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

"Overclocking the MSI Z68A GD80 is in reality the same as overclocking the MSI P67A GD65. The same tools are used and in the end I came up with a slightly better overclock than I did on the P67A GD65 (by about 80MHz). To get to this level I worked exclusively in the Click BIOS and made adjustments to the CPU core voltage, memory voltage and for the most part, left the balance of the voltages on auto. When I did this though, I found that at the maximum clock speed the CPU would start throttling. By adjusting the "Long Duration power limit" from 95 to 110 I was able to eliminate the throttling. This gave me a good 4.96GHz clock speed that proves stable when the CPU is kept cool enough."

Business software left the office and moved into the home long ago. If you've ever lost the password to Word, ZIP or PDF file in misguided attempt to protect data from prying eyes, this guide to Decrypting Document and File Passwords is a life saver. PCSTATS Tips
