I'm kinda surpriced they didn't put a max overclock button on these boards ...

or does MSI still have the genie button ?!

I have the UD7 and 2600k, but have not tried to OC since the SB problem was announced - just in case....

Before this, I did overclock to 4.5GHz, but I didn't touch anything else apart from the CPU multiplier. Should the voltages be changed also, and if yes, by how much?

Cheers,

Chris

If it ran stable without having to change the volts then you shouldn't have to up them. Disable Speedstep and turbo boost if you haven't already so that you are running at 4.5ghz constantly. Also the SB problem does not affect the CPU it's only the SATA 2 ports on the motherboard overclocking wont affect them.

I'm running at 4.6ghz on my 2500k @1.37v I did try for 4.7ghz but i can't get it stable below 1.4v and I don't want to risk going over 1.38v for a 24/7 OC. I only have the standard P8P67 and I don't think it OCs well.

The UD7 is a breeze to use and overclock on, so that's where my vote was spent
