    Default MSI Big Bang XPower - OC Genie question

    Hey everyone, I am new to this board and this is my first post.

    My specs are (I assume) under my name (since I have no avatar).

    Regardless, the i7 950 as many of you know runs @ 3.06GHz. I decided to push the little OC Genie button on my xpower motherboard and it got to 3.75GHz. Would you consider that a good overclock for the push of a button .

    I've never manually overclocked before but I am going to guess 3.75 will be just as stable as no OC, my i7 on idle (with no OC) runs @ 28C and on full load (no OC) runs at about 33-36C.

    I can't remember what I got in prime95 after an hour with the OC, I think it was 46-48C. I assume that is still safe yes??

    Does anyone here have this same board? I am wondering if I can somehow push the OC even further and then save that into a profile to load when I push that button

    Welcome to PureOC.

    Your system specs are not showing because you need to select yes (in the edit system specs section) for them to show up.

    I'll let the experts here respond to your OC questions.

    Welcome to pureoverclock theonlynameleft, to answer your question that is just a bare minimum OC not really even worth doing considering the heat difference. I would suggest to OC it in the bios yourself you will get a much better result that way. My board has the OC genie as well and I just have it disabled because it just doesn't work well enough that I would consider it worth using, take a look in the OC section of the forum and look for the 4GHz club thread plenty of information there that should get you on your way to a great OC.

    There my specs are showing now.

    I'd love to break the 4GHz mark but like I said, is it possible to save an OC profile of 4GHz to the OC Genie and then use it when I need it and when off just use the stock settings for everything? I'm guessing no, I can't do that...

    To be honest I tried the OC Genie and was very disappointed with it right out of the gate so I never played around with it to much, so I'm not sure if you can save a profile for it or not.
