not sure if i should post this here or over in a thread about my proc... but ive been testing my new fx-8350.... and ive noticed it will randomly down clock for about 10 seconds every so often (have a OSD for temps and such) and it looks like the mulitplier is dropping... temps arnt too high... any thoughts?

U have to turn off all the power saving feature so that the processor will not downclock it self to save power when not needed.. Sory for my bad english..

Definite answer?, no. The VRM heatsink up front will have the biggest effect on dropping VRM temps. Factly because of the heatsink. The backside only has a plate which will gain you less temp drop than the one up front.

But by sloping both sides with proper fans, temp drop would be massive.

VRM pads should be thicker than what you imply IMO. That due to a simple fact that VRMs will not be perfectly flat. You need some layway in case they are not properly aligned so everyone gets a fair share of pressure from the pads and the heatsink.

As long as the pads cover everything, no issues. Just make sure that are clean from dusts and other things.

Mega was saying to push the clocks further. Not stressing it.
If your rig is cool enough, go squeeze few more MHz from it.
And yeah, your six cores will not give those VRMs proper workouts compared with those octacores.

Could be throttling. Or turbo kicking in and out.

Yes i think mine also do that when on optimize default. But not that sure coz its been a while when i run on default.

You have to disable turbo core, and power saving features to get a stable default clock.

You would also need to verify the characteristics of downclocking. It could be all of the cores downclocking which is caused by turbo and power savers. Or
Some cores lower than others which is throttling. Could be heat, or voltage.

you need to turn off apm OR turn on HPC
apm will throttle the cpu at 40c socket, and again @ 72c socket.

it will also throttle if you pull too many amps

HPC will stop all throttling except socket @72 on this board

several

you can snug it in/wedge it in, set it on gpu, screw it in to the HS, double sided tape, anyway you can now i am much lazier, i just block them
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

he wanted to know the stock pad size

how is running pime95 not pushing the chip?
your 6 core will need farm more volts before the vrms are stressed which means much higher clocks
