Re: No OC is being applied
Never owned a MSI board (all my motherboards have been ASUS), so I don't know their BIOS layout. Anyways, have you tried increasing the vdimm voltage? Stock is 1.8V but your memory needs 2.1V I believe. And what CPU settings have you changed? Make sure you disable enhanced C1E (halt state), SpeedStep, and all the spread spectrum settings. If there're any auto OC options, disable them.
