Default Block Limit of 118 on msi z170 Mpower

I have an MSi z170 Mpower and a i3-6320 processor. I am trying to overclock it but the board seems to have a limit of 118 for the bk. I've set beta runner to NOC. Any help would be appreciated.

Can you post your detailed settings?

If I had problems with MSI, it usually helped to remove the BIOS battery, go back to the bios and apply all settings at once.

Just seen your response. I changed to extreme6. So I'll have to setup the board again. Basically for beta runner there are two options, NOC and real thread. Under NOC when I type in 125 the value is auto changed back to 118. Under real thread the value 125 does not change but the system will not boot.

I get picks as soon as I can.

Thank for your response.

It's a limit in bios. Xpower had the same in some bioses. Try another bios.

Thanks for the confirmation. I'll have to try to find a bios somebody modded. MSI only has two bios's in their website. Tried both

Thanks for the link, but I have the Mpower motherboard. Can I use the Xpower bios on the Mpower? Not willing to try without confirmation.

Don't flash Xpower bios on Mpower board. In case you'd try, I'm pretty sure there's a mechanism to prevent you from flashing the incorrect BIOS though.

This should be the latest BETA BIOS for the Mpower Gaming Titanium: http://217.110.237.70/fae_de/BIOS/Z170A/7A16_121.zip (Aug 30)
