Pepinorang (MSI) Publishes Z170A XPower Gaming TE LN2 OC Guide (+ support thread)

Pepinorang, one of MSI's two in-house overclockers, recently published an extreme overclocking guide for the new Z170A XPower Gaming TE motherboard. The guide is the kick off for the overclocking support thread in our forums.

In the forum thread you can find interesting downloads as well. For example, you'll find the latest version of the Core Center Lite and Core Center Lite Memory light-weight overclocking tools. You can also find a link to the latest test BIOS, which according to Pepinorang is currently the best pick for extreme overclockers. In the LN2 OC Guide, we find more information on the extreme overclocking features of the motherboard, an insulation guide, and tips'n'tricks for overclocking Hynix MFR memory kits.

Check out the thread on the forum for more information and details!

The LN2 OC guide links to command center.
FPT link is disabled: "https://goo.gl/GJGlXD – this goo.gl shortlink has been disabled. It was found to be violating our Terms of Service. Do not use goo.gl for URLs that are either executable/package files (like .apk, .dmg, .exe, .zip, etc.) or that contain only IP addresses, or for shortening URL re-directors (either off goo.gl or via other URL shortening services)."

I got board quite late so it took me some time to release it and it's not totally finished yet, I will update it as fast as possible.
Basic primary timings for Samsung IC probably tomorrow.
