Hi Corsair Dustin! Thanks for the response, I thought that the X299 may have had a bit of extra love in it! As for the i160, for some reason I could not get mine to hold any kind of turbo at all. With factory settings it could boost to around 4.2 during testing and if I tried any kind of overclocking it would drop much lower. It may have been my lack of experience with MSI’s BIOS but after researching and testing for hours and having none of my friends have any luck, I decided to do the swap.
After the swap, even without changing any settings on the motherboard it would stay constant at 4.7 and I have got it running 5 without issues. It may have been me or it may have just had a bad board; but, since it wasn’t seeming to have a hardware issue, and since I come from building PCs, my solution to underperforming was “upgrade” lol. Seems to be fine now, performance is excellent, and the Bios won’t be an issue for the PC I put the board in!
