  1. You can hit 3.99GHz on it by linking two of the pads under the CPU together, thus bluffing the motherboard that it is a 1066FSB processor instead of an 800FSB. Google 'pin modding' or 'pad modding'.

    I had the same CPU at 5.2GHz for two years. Sweet chip, all things considered - and some Italian maniacs pulled one of those to 8+GHz on LN2 cooling.

    The easiest solution would be to find an Intel P35 or 965-based motherboard from Gigabyte or Asus.
  2. Thank you very much sir! for your information :) i read the manual of this motherboard it says "this board is designed for overclocking" but there's nothing in the bios. anyway thank you very very much!!more power!!!! :)
  3. Does it not have the Core Cell menu? MSI boards often do.

    Not always.

    Anyways, you are welcome.
  4. nope it doesn't have a core cell menu:( i tried the software called fuzzy logic but nothing happened:(
  5. this is what i found as what you say the pin mod:)
    good luck to me! :) again thank you!
  6. That's the one!

    Happy modding!
  7. Confirming what you wrote above ...
    I found this on Page 5 in the User Manual for your motherboard:



    "This mainboard is designed to support overclocking."


    MRFS
  8. Page 12:




    See "Advanced BIOS Features" and "Advanced Chipset Features".

    Do either of these BIOS menus allow you to do manual changes
    e.g. to FSB and multiplier?

  9. thanks im going to check it now!!
  10. You know your board can support core 2 CPU's? It will support up to an E6700 with the latest bios. I wouldn't recommend pin modding you could fry everything if your not careful, but it looks like you should be able to overclock on this board.

    Its not worth the risk when you can find those old Core 2 Duos pretty cheap and will run circles around a P4. Even with a 3.9Ghz OC on that P4 its still a P4.
  11. SAAIELLO is correct, you really shouldn't pin mod, pin's aren't thinks that are very easy to mess around with, it takes huge percision, and you really should just get the chip SAA suggested instead of almost frying your chip :P

    Thanks man its super risky to pin mod the processor but where i can find this processor? E6700? this board supports only 65nm processor i check on some site they sell only 45nm processor:(
  13. Well not exactly, IF you did a bios update to the latest 5.3, as MSI says. It'll support the 6700, http://us.msi.com/index.php?func=prodcpusupport&maincat_no=1&cat2_no=&cat3_no=&prod_no=1039#menu MSI even says so.
