hi all
early in some post i see that are some people running a FX 8150 with gigabyte ga 970a d3 rev 1.3 if someone could tell me how to achieve that, because gigabyte claim that rev 1.3 don´t support fx 8150, if you tweak it somehow please send me a beta bios cause my system crash constantly (fx 8150 ,ga 970a d3 rev 1.3, 8gb gskill 1600 9,9,9,24 ,750 watt rosewill 80+ gold, sapphire hd 5870 eyefinity 6)
sorry for my English and thanks in advance

dude you got something wrong there when you claim that ga 970a d3 rev 1.3 support fx 8150 because amd keep saying that it does not, if you find the way to achive that please share it.
thanks

angell,

This must be a non-US motherboard then, because in the US there's rev 1.0/1.1, which does not support the FX-8150. The rev 3.0 and 1.4. both support the FX-8150. Both have a heatsink on the VRMs, while the rev 1.3 does not have the VRM heatsink, and doesn't support the FX-8150 according to Gigabyte.

rev 1.3

Only the rev 3.0 and 1.4 support the FX-8150

Hello Guys!

I am looking to overclock my AMD FX-8350 (with H60 watercooling), but have no clue on how..

Could anyone provide me with an overclocking guide or settings that I should put my motherboard on?

I just want to get to 4.5+.. (maybe 5.0!)

Thanks in advance.

Rohan

Basically you should follow a Bulldozer OC guide because the only Piledriver guide I've seen is for Asus boards and BD and PD pretty much react same to OC's.

Always test for stability and watch the temps. With an H60 it is pretty much impossible to reach 5ghz unless you're able to attain 5ghz at a very low voltage compared to others. 4.5ghz should be doable though.

Yeah, the h60 is like hyper 212+ performance so I'd say 4.5ghz will probably be your limit with your temps getting way up there at that point.
post #1457 of 3278
Rohan,

We need to know more information. What model and revision is the motherboard. What case and case fans are you planning to use?

I use a 990FXA-UD5, for my FX-8320 @3.2GHz, cooled by an H-60 with a single 74 cfm, Arctic Cooling F12 PWM CO, 400 to 1350 rpm fan, in place of the stock Corsair 74 cfm fan that is just too noisy at 1700+ rpm. My case is a Corsair 400R. which has proven to be the best cooling case I've ever seen in my 22 years of building more than 500 computers.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186078

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139008&Tpk=corsair%20400r I caught a sale at Newegg for $79, and bought 2 of them. The second on has a 990X-UD3, with a Phenom IIx6 1090t in it and again, the temps stay very low

My CPU temps never exceed 52C, even running all 8 cores at 100% load with Prime 95.

Best Regards,
Russ

So I picked one of these up and paired it with that Samsung wonder RAM and an 8320. This chip seems relatively happy at 4.2 Ghz on stock voltage, so far. I have only gotten 2 hours in on Prime95, and the temperatures are decent. The pesky TMPIN2 sensor gets up to a whole 55c after a couple hours, which isn't bad at all compared to a friend with an 8120 on the same board (at lower clocks!). I really think TMPIN2 might be VRM. Enabling LLC makes it go up 10-20c, which makes little sense considering the CPU temps only go up a couple degrees at best.

Anybody running an 8320 on this board along with the samsung wonder RAM? I'm really curious on what other people are pushing these things to.

I'm just using a Hyper 212+ with an Ultra Kaze 3000rpm spinning at about 1700rpm. Not that noisy and not that hot!

I have a 970-d3 rev 1.4...and I am trying to overclock an 8350 on it, PSU is CX750W corsair bronze, hyper 212+ cooling, ram is patriot extreme 1866...

I am using regular LLC (extreme swings the vcore too far (+.1V) and doesn't seem to be as stable). All power management/ C&Q/ boost etc... are disabled.

My 8350 seems to want a lot of voltage to hold OC:

To hit 4.5Ghz I have to set to 1.5 vcore... At this voltage/clock, after about 3 minutes on OCCT I start to hear a buzzing sound (it is not the overtemp sound). My temps are all in line (< 52C cpu package, mid 60's on socket temp, all other temps seem good (around 50C max)). Any thoughts on what this is (coil whine?) ? My thinking is that it is the power on the board starting to flake out/is it dangerous? Would it make sense to put a fan on the mosfet heatsink?

One thing that I notice is that the harder a push it, the more +5 VCCH starts fluctuating (from 3.6 something up the 6.8 something). Is this normal? On the run above this voltage was steadily increasing up to 6.8 V over the.



So, am I asking too much of my mobo? 1.5V too high?
