Hello Sifus,

I'm confused on using MSI newest feature which is called "MSI OC Genie 2".

How to make it work? icon_question.gif

I already enable OC Genie function through BIOS.
I already download Intel Management Engine (As it required to run OC Genie and overclocking) blush.gif
I already download MSI Control Center through MSI Live Update 5.

The problem is, after I enable and did everything to enable OC Genie 2, my processor highest speed is only 2.9Ghz which is the same as the stock Intel speed. sweat.gif

Any helps? Please help me icon_question.gif

Only overclocking option for locked SB is by BCLK overclocking, which is dangerous since everything else (PCI, PCIe speed, etc. which tied to it) is also being overclocked in your system. Read this.

All in all, it's not worth it. 5% gain is meaningless. Leave it at stock and be happy with it.

Don't bother overclocking your Pentium. Not worth it at all.
The best to maximize your system performance is by getting a DDR3-2133 and play with tighter timing.

what board first?

with non K CPU, once u press the OCGenie it will only set your ram to XMP.
if u using Z68 with onboard IGP, it will also increase your IGP clock slightly.

and 4.7% is nothing. with 100Mhz increment, you just wasted your time learning to OC and also it might interfere the stability.
