The plus and minus buttons will let you tweak the systemâs base clock in real time with 1MHz increments, while the remaining OC Genie button can automatically overclock the processor to its maximum. In a short video embedded after the jump, you can see an MSI P55-GD65 board and Lynnfield engineering sample with a 133.7MHz default base clock and a multiplier of 17. Hitting the plus button four times brings the base clock to 137.7MHz, which pushes the CPU from 2.27GHz to 2.34GHz.
Itâs may not be as impressive as Asusâ bay-mounted overclock assistant, the OC Station, but it will definitely go easier on your wallet. Furthermore, MSI plans to include a new âV-Kitâ in all of its P55 motherboards, a feature overclockers and benchmark fans will find useful to keep track of motherboard voltages with a multimeter.
