I'd recommend the 8370 over the 9xxx series. The 9590 comes stock at 4.7GHz and turbos to 5.0 but has a TDP of 220w and CPU VID usually around 1.5 - 1.525v. You'll need/want a lot more cooling to OC a 9xxx. Top twp boards would be a CHV-Z or Saborkitty. Giga has too many Bios/VRM issues for my liking. Check this out too http://www.overclock.net/t/730776/official-gigabyte-ga-890fxa-ud5-ud7-owners-thread-club/4280#post_25123543 The 8370 can be OC'd to 4.7 to 4.9GHz (in...
Good you found the issue but a bummer on it being ram thinking of cost compared to DDR3 and newer now a days. Been going through the memory upgrade blues with the GF's rig which is one of M4A785-M here. Hard to justify the cost going from 4gb to 8gb. Most likely just a chip gone bad. 2.2v won't fry a dimm rated at 1.8v. I don't suppose it's a good brand name with Life Time Warranty?
My setup runs fans on both sides of the mobo [[SPOILER]]
Please give this a read when time allows http://www.overclock.net/t/1258253/how-to-put-your-rig-in-your-sigit'll help those that are trying to help you Myself I'm enjoying 10. While it may not bench as nice as 7 this is not an issue for me.A trip to BlackViper's "Safe List" of disabled "Services" and a dash of "Windows Privacy Tweaker" and all the MS chatter goes away.FYI, you'll need to install/have 7 to get the free Upgrade, I'd do this with the old/new CPU not the...
You might also want to check and make sure the mobo has the latest Bios installed (1101). I always use the EZ Flash method on the four that are around here.
0.5mm, 16mm x100mm you'll want two of these and trim to suit.EK also recommends a non conductive TIM.Arctic MX-4 is what I used.
Mine stays in place and runs off a fan controller so there's options (90 x 25mm, 2100 rpm). [[SPOILER]]
My 8350 ran 1.524v Vcore for 4822MHz 24 hr P95 Blend and many other tests.Voltage usually isn't the killer it's high temps that will degrade your chip. It's fairly common to exceed 1.5 above 4.8 to 4.9GHz.Some do better than others (silicon lottery) and the lower your temps the less voltage needed.Add some active cooling to the VRM/Socket area as it can help prevent heat soak. This is a must when under water.For testing in the early stages I run IBT AVX version...
This gives you a better "actual time" to gauge from http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/BootRacer.shtmlThis is how I set my Bios [[SPOILER]] to help speed things up a bit.And if you haven't seen this http://www.overclock.net/t/1156654/seans-windows-7-install-optimization-guide-for-ssds-hdds I highly recommend giving it a serious looking over.There are several links that are very helpful within the text.Not fair to compare your time unless it's against...
I make sure to duplicate everyday OS for personal settings and windows tweaks etc as close as possible than stress test on that. Once it's stable than there's no problems running your new OC bios settings you just tested on the everyday SSD. Obviously you leave the everyday OS on something known to be stable (Default maybe?) till you have a stable OC.
