This is as far as I go on air. http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2315506 Was 24/7 stable but it got a little too hot for my liking under load. So I am back at 4.5 - 4.6GHz now. thumb.gif

im in the same boat. managed this last night but the heat was just too much for my liking. maxed out around 64 C and i know core temp isnt spot on but thats still too high for me

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2319515

put it back to 4.54 right now and i see about 55 max after an hour or so of prime. im personally happy with that because the highest ive seen with regular use is about 40-45

i did manage a 5.2 but as soon as i double clicked cpu-z it froze frown.gif

Hey all,

I'm posting both in this thread and in my motherboards thread because i don't know where my issue is stemming from.

Over the past 24 hours I've noticed that skyrim is unusually glitchy and today while i was playing it sent me back to windows and closed down. I've been playing over the past few weeks so i know my system was stable, but while playing i would see temps get as high as 60c depending on what i was doing. When it shut down today i figured it was just hot and i let it go to cool off a bit, but when i tried to bring it back out of sleep mode it crashed. When i would try to restart my system lights and fans would come on, run for a while and then the whole thing would shut off again but nothing ever showed up on the monitor. I hooked it up to my laptop so i could monitor it and watched the voltage to my cpu hold steady while the amps and cpu temp would quickly climb, reach about 65c then that is when it would die. Watching the RC Poster i could see it say start up, i think something about checking the cpu, then it went straight into the "boot successfully" message every time.

I called ASUS customer support and they had me disconnect everything but 1 stick of RAM, cpu, video card, and monitor and successively try out each of my Memory slots to see if i could get it to post. Nothing happened with that or with some different ram i know works. They gave me an RMA number for my motherboard, but before i went down that road i wanted to consult my clubs and see if anyone actually has something more insightful then the standard "send it in we'll mess with it for a few weeks answer"

My rig specs are below, anything else that i need to mention but didn't just ask. Thanks.

that is very odd, what kind of cooling do you have on the cpu?

Something you could try before sending your MOBO away is, with the computer unplugged, open the case, reset the CMOS (refer to the user manual for this) and if it is indeed a temperature issue, you could try applying new cpu paste to the cooler (very thin, refer to youtube for a video)

Then attempt to boot it up.

If it does start to boot up. With the side panel off, watch to make sure that the CPU fan is running as well.

So I decided I would do some lapping on my FX 8150 today. I've heared that they are not very smooth from the factory so I wanted check it out.

I didn't take pictures, cause I was just doing it out of boredom, and the next thing you know, it was super smooth.

One thing that did stand out though, was that the whole one corner of it was way higher than the rest of the IHS. (user error? Maybe)

I haven't had any heat issues (I'm pretty good with TIM) but it was cool to see the difference.

I suspect I will have better heat levels between Modules now, but it'll be cool to see if it made any difference at all.

ive read about this lapping process and my buddy has been pestering me about trying it. ive only owned the CPU for a month so id rather not totally ruin it so soon. Have you tested it much since you did it?

Finances are tight so for now i was just using the stock cooler that came with my processor. Plenty of sources convinced me it was adequate for the minimal overclocking i did.

I didnt refer to the owners manual first but i did reset the CMOS using my remote laptop and the ROG Connect feature on my mobo and that didnt help. All the fans and the lights came in both in the Video card and the cpu cooler. After it shut down i could see the cpu temp was about 57c and since the fan was shut off i brought in a blower i had and started manually cooling down my system. once it got back down to the low to mid 30's i tried a reboot. I saw the voltage holding steady but dont remember at this time what its value was, however the current to my cpu starting taking off and so did my temp. in a matter of about 10 seconds it climbed to almost 70c before it shut itself down (i was unable to shut it off quicker). Since i am a noob i dont know if the behavior of my current is how it should be or not. it seems odd that while the computer is not even booted that i would have such a high current draw which seems to trigger my heat spike? I'm not discounting what you have said but i dont know why suddenly my thermal compound would go bad, this rig has been running great for several weeks. If i'm missing something please explain, i'm trying to learn not criticize.

For anyone who is unfamiliar with the ROG connect i mentioned using here is a short video that will help
