I haven't just yet, I'm going to keep these settings for a while and see if it crashes/BSODs etc. and if see if I could call this "stable". If it is, I'll try to take LLC down a notch and see what happens.
Again, thank you guys, for helping me. Earlier on I couldn't even boot at 3.5 ghz redface.gif

What is your setting of LLC? I recommend you only use High or Ultra High?

Ahh ok, I was under the impression that high is quite normal.

Here's the validation BTW. Gamed pretty much the whole day today ( lol) no problems at all. NB and HT are both running at ~2200mhz.

I didn't mean to say that 'you' have too much LLC, Only adding that LLC can overcompensate for V Droop causing V Boost. Just like everything with overclocking you have to fiddle with it lol. Nice job on the validation!

Ahh ok lol. I could've repped you on all these posts but I didn't because then it'd be unfair to others.I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate all the help you've given to me.

And thank you smile.gif

Trying to absorb some of your guys knowledge and the best (safest) way to oc if I decide to do so.
I really don't see a point on my setup right now, other than seeing how far I can take it.

First I keeping going back and fourth and buying into water just yet. I was thinking of getting a stand alone water cooler just for the CPU, and decided if I go water, I should go all out and water cool everything. Hence my current Air CPU cooler.

I have read back a ways in the forum and saw someone calling BS on Air cooling and getting an 8350 to OC to 4.6 Ghz.
With my current Air Cooler, I can't really see that not being possible (with some guidance) if my only concern is CPU temp getting too high.
But my one question before I stick to that statement, how hot can I safely run a 8350?
I currently have a hard time getting my CPU temp to 50c at full load at stock settings. (idle temps have bounced from 17c to31c w/an avg of 19c over the last 10 min.) Ambient/Room temp is around 70f to 75f.

I digress... I have been having a hard time finding AMD's safe range for this CPU, so I would first like to start with that knowledge and go from there.

Thanks!

I cannot help you much with the BD chips, I'm still fiddling and learning about them.

I can tell you that CLC (Closed Loop Cooler's) are a waste of time unless space is at a premium. high end air is sooo much better than a CLC.

If you go water try a RASA kit to get you started.

I can't remember the exact value, but the 83xx series was not the usual 62C, I THINK it was 83C, but don't quote me on that.
