Depending on what games and how you stream/record them you might need to move farther up the AMD chain. with an unlocked 5 core your in an interesting situation.

I couldn't overclock the chip at all after unlocking it on that board. Which left me at the same performance as at quad overclocked to 4ghz. I stream using xsplit and twitch and record using afterburner (only if recording while not streaming otherwise twitch conveniently records stream sessions) smile.gif

Yea, you need to move up to a faster CPU. I would look at bagging a 6-8 core BD. I'll bet that the 7970 also put's a hurting on the 960T as it is!

Yeah I think I'm going to wait and see what AMD pulls out of the bag this time around, or if I can snag an 8350 cheap I may just do that.

As for the 7970, I didn't have a bottleneck in my system when I was running a 560ti but at the last OCN lan at the courtesy of the AMD Radeon rep I scored this 7970 in trade of my 560ti which I couldn't say no to obviously. My 500w PSU probably isn't very happy with me after that either lol.

Hello everyone! I want to apologize right now for the wall of text I'm about to throw at you. I recently purchased a 990FXA-UD3 from Newegg to power my FX-8350. Sadly the first board, a Rev 1.1, was messed up and had bad cap whine and crazy high temps. My RMA'd unit is a Rev 3.0 and while the temps are great on it I'm experiencing throttling. I've read through this thread probably a dozen times. I'm not sure if I'm missing something or what.

So far this is what I have. At stock 4.0ghz with turbo off there is no throttling. At 4.44ghz @ 1.38v I get very light throttling, every so often my multi drops to 7x. At 4.40ghz @ 1.38v I'm not noticing any throttling. If I try to go to 4.5 or 4.6ghz even at 1.404v I'm experiencing heavy throttling.

I'm on the newest UEFI FC and I have all the low power states disabled. I have HPC mode enabled. I'm using a bus overclock as opposed to a multi overclock. My reported temps are great, though I'm not completely sure which is which. I see here in the FAQ TMPIN1 is CPU and TMPIN2 is NB. However TMPIN2 matchs Hardware monitor's report of CPU package temp dead on. Either way, TMPIN1 is max 48C at 4.44ghz and TMPIN2 is 51C.

I am using an Antec Kuhler 620 on my CPU on a push pull setup so I know the VRMs aren't getting the greatest airflow, so I placed a fan blowing on them. Everything I've found indicates this as VRM throttling but I don't know what to do to remedy it. I have a feeling this CPU is going to be a great clocker but if I try to push it at all I get crazy throttling. Any thoughts or ideas would be really appreciated!

Same issues here, went through all the settings tried 18k different ways and still get the same thing, aida64 stability test shows stable. Prime95 I get light throttling.

That was the first thing I did was download FC. It hasn't made any difference with throttling at all.
