So you got your board running again right? Mine never fired back up to now.

Might as well try to put it atop the box to see if there's just something messing with it.

But on a note, mine died on AIDA Stress run.. So different situation!!

Hi guys, i'm just a total noob when it comes to overclocking; i'm using a UD5 and want to push a 6300 to 4.5 but i have my own concerns about NB/VRM temperatures, i'm runing watercooling but not cooling those; its safe to overclock the CPU (considering that radiators and its fans could be blocking the airfow on the case)??

Your 6300 at 4.5 won't hurt much the VRMs nor the NB on the UD5. But an 80mm fan could really help if that's what you're asking.

I'd assume your case could also house an exhaust fan right?

Its a Corsair 600T and i have a 200mm as intake in front then three 120mm as exhaust (i probably have to fix this, maybe the rear as intake too?...) i'm using static pressure fans (1xSP120 for the 120mm rad at rear and 2xAP15 for the 240mm at top) but since they are all "blocked" by radiators i'm wondering if airflow is that effective for the vrms and nb >:

Just got it up and running right now, once again. Had to drain loop for the 100th time to fix a major kink in a tube. So yes shes alive and kicking. My theory is somehow the board was shorting out. Maybe touching the mobo tray somewhere. I added tons of electrical tape to the mobo tray and she fires right up biggrin.gif But who knows what the problem really was.

Watercooling with that chip you should be able to get 4.8+ easy. Your VRM and NB will be absolutely fine as long as you have some decent amount of airflow at the heatsink. Personally the NB has never given me any problems, I would worry about VRM's.

Having even a little direct airflow at the heatsink can make more than a 10C difference. Tons of airflow were talking 20C+ difference.

glad you got it fixed.

Mine has been going strong ever since i had to send it in to RMA (Lan stopped working) they repaired my board and sent it back, same one.

I've had it since 10/21/2011. Still going strong.

Got mine used from KyadCK. Really didn't need the board, honestly it's not much different from my 970A-UD3. Seems to OC the same, BIOS is little less finnicky. Only reason I got it was due to the 8320 I had. Wouldn't OC for craaaaap. Wanted to see if a different board would help, it didn't lol.

One of the worst 8320's ever. Still have it, never got around to selling it.

I had a 8120 first which was mediocre. Max I got out of it was 4.8ghz in benches 4.6ghz daily clocks.

Swapped it out with my current 8320 and seems I got a decent chip, can Bench at 5.26ghz daily clocks at 5ghz. Probably could bench higher if I had LLC. So must be a pretty golden chip.

This 8320... Anything over 2350-2400 on CPU-NB was totally unstable no matter the voltage. It would do 4.6 GHz "game" stable but even with 1.6V+ it would fail stress tests almost immediately. This was on a Kuhler 920, it never experienced this custom loop. Maybe I should pop it in for giggles and see if somehow it will magically go over 4.6 GHz.

I know it's easy to blame the user, I don't know how to OC etc. But I do. I spent many frustrating hours trying to get that thing to get past 4.6 GHz. Just wouldn't happen on the 970A or 990FXA.

This 8350 seems average. Will game stable at around 1.52V at 5GHz but doesn't pass stress tests at that. FSB sweet spot seems to be around 220-230. Cinebenched it all the way up to 5.414 GHz but that was with like 5C ambient and like 1.7V+ devil.gif Think the max temp on that run was 55C on the core. It fails Cinebench at these clocks/voltages with higher ambients.

i run 5ghz @ 1.45 volts :-)

5.2ghz @ 1.55volts, but the voltage is kinda wonky at that speed so its not stable entirely. I can post with higher speeds just no where near stable, and the voltage is so wacky at 1.55+ volts (dips down to 1.5volts) so pushing higher is out of the question.

Its been tempting to get another motherboard with LLC and try my luck, but figure its only small gains.
