hi all,
i am planning to upgrade my mobo to this:
http://www.msi.com/product/mb/Z68A-GD65--G3-.html

but i am worried, since i am using i5 2500K,
and this review shows that the vcore is up to 1.408v, on 4.7ghz!
http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cpu_mainboard/msi_z6...

the i5 2500k's vcore should not exceed 1.2v imho...

this is bad news, as i am afraid to let my vcore go past 1.2v...
although i only plan to OC to 4 to 4.2 ghz...
will this MSI mobo let me reach my targeted OC with just stock vcore? or even 1.2v?
should i get this board? it's good price though...and the mobo looks good...

And besides i dont think you should be to worried ive got my 2500K running at 1.3v and 4.5ghz for months now and no problems.

Could you post some screenshots of your bios? Been using OC Genie but I want to push it higher. Thanks in advance.
