Everything fired up just fine first try with the MSI board.
OC Genie II pops the CPU up to 4.4GHz with the click of a button and with manual overclocking I was able to reach 4.8GHz without a sweat.
At stock 3.3 (EIST turned off) CPU idles at 23-25c.
At 4.4GHz CPU idles at 34c.
I don't run prime95 as I don't have anything that pushes 4 cores to 100% for any period of time but... highest temp I've seen so far is 54c.
Definitely giving this MSI Z68 board 2 thumbs up
