...ha...that creep is sooo long gone.
Solitaire's got it right. Just mostly a bitter reflection on the MSI P965 Neo-F.
Really. Don't ever get one. Even for your grandma. Once I replace it, it might go on to my dear sweet mother, but I'm not sure even she would find it acceptable, and she barely can use email clients.
My memory is running at 1.9 volts, because that's what it's rated at, and there's just no point in really trying too hard for an overclock for a few different reasons,
1)MSI won't allow above a 266MHz FSB on this piece of crap. (BIOS setting)
2)The PCI-Express bus is frequency linked to the FSB, and thus, will happily crash my video card overclocked too much.
3)There is no setting to adjust processor core voltage.
So, instead of having a good system, or at least a lukewarm one which is good for gaming, I have a completely tame one that's good for gaming.
Plus, I'm still championing the idea that "processor bottlenecks" aren't really all that horrible...doesn't make me want to go back to my x800GT, or my HD 2600XT, that's for sure, even though I did not "bottleneck" them.
As to this...
That's the P965 Platinum. Completely different BIOS, I'm sure, one that MSI didn't cripple.
