    Re: News - MSI OC Genie introduces one-touch automatic overclocking

    I'll be intrigued to see how much overclock it manages to acheive and how stable it is. I reckon it's a nice idea for people starting out their building careers - they can pick some components including an OC Genie motherboard, hit the button and they get an instant performance boost.

    I should imagine that it will also encourage some people who are thinking about OCing to try using Genie first, then start delving into the BIOS to see if they can get a "better" overclock by tweaking themselves...

    It's a restrained turbo button. How will the OC Genie know that the CPU temps will hit 90 on load if I press it at idle? By being reserved.

    I think it's a good idea, provided the OC is stable and it doesn't bump up the voltage too much. And I hope it keeps an eye on temps.

    I wonder if pressing the button will void any warranties

    Re: News - MSI OC Genie introduces one-touch automatic overclocking

    I can see this being one of those "extra 10%" buttons, rather than really adjust voltage, FSB, memory dividers etc all on-the-fly.
    As borandi said, a turbo button

    Although technically a turbo button made the computer slower...

    I imagine it will be similar to what uGuru presets were on abit uGuru mobos - factory defined profiles.
    iirc abit's "Turbo" was only about a 13% overclock though when the components were capable of much more if you spent some time doing it manually.
