I checked the Disc that came with the motherboard today, it had nothing OC wise on the automatic setup program, but when I searched through the contents of the Disc I came across an application called
Upon installing the software it told me
"Can't be used with this motherboard"
I've had other MSi software tell me they require an MSi motheboard to run, which is crazy considering I have an MSi motherboard AND a MSi Nvidia GTX 460...
I've been doing a little more digging and it seems that this particular motherboard is sent to shops only and then after that if you need help you MUST go to the shop you bought it from as MSi provide zero support and don't even list it on their website...
Bingo! It's disabled...almost like buying a Dell...ughhh....anyway..you could look for a flash to unlock it..but its risky..i would recommend consulting them to see if there is a workaround, or just get another board
"The process of overclocking the i7-870 was pretty much the same as the i5-750. We first tried to achieve a high overclock using stock voltages, and thanks to the slightly higher multiplier here, we were able to get by with using a lower bus speed (173MHz vs. 155MHz). Not only that, but we managed to achieve a slightly higher overclock, as well... 3.72GHz!"
I only have a stock cooler so I'm a little cautious of following the next steps about pushing towards 4ghz, but hopefully I can get a new cooler.
