Cell Menu:

The overclocking section of the MSI DKA790GX Platinum is called the CELL Menu. This is where the magic takes place. MSI has separated this in sections also so that you do not get all confused when navigating it. I will start from the top and split it in sections also. First, is where you can change the speeds of the processor. You have control over enabling and disabling the Cool N Quiet feature for when full power is needed. You can also change the Bus speed and the multiplier of the CPU and the HyperTransport. You can select to alter all cores together or independently.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Onboard VGA overclock section allows you to change the speed of the integrated video. The default is 700MHz. Below that is the DRAM configuration. Here you can change the strap which alters the frequency based on the speed of the CPU. You can also change the timings for the memory to tweak them as fast as you can.

 

 

The last part is where you can change the HyperTransport Link speed based on the multiplier chosen and the voltages for the devices like the CPU, memory, HyperTransport Link, and more.

 

 

 Now that everything is configured let's install the drivers and utilities to get started.
