Ricwin,
have you used the fan mate/fan expert to change you fan setting?
,mine where set up for 71c,i changed that.
i have most of my case fans plug in to my mobo ,but have disabled controlling them,so they are running at max,better to have case fans on full then have a cpu fan @ 100%.

my fx is roasting,sunday dinner anyone?

I saw this post floating around here somewhere, and i took my time to investigate it a lot
http://www.thelab.gr/heatsinks-coolers-watercooling-reviews/cpu-cooler-review-database-89014.html
and i decided on Fan cooling, due to the fact that i would really really hate to see my gear ruined by water (yes i know most problems are user error,but i just dont want to get into that just yet, maybe in the future)

currently i am more inclined to choose the Aegir (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835233087) as the fans last longer than the scythe mugen,(sleeve bearing) and i would do a push pull by adding an extra fan onto it anyways.

what i want to get to is this, what kind of overclock can i expect with the current configuration i have in my sig (stock cooler), and by adding the aegir. temps here are usually between 21-28 C. I dont want some amazing 5ghz, i want to be realistic and get like a 4.1-4.2 range, i can get it already with the asus auto tune thing, but it´s unstable i´m assuming because of heat ( and yes i know OCing is better done through BIOS, which i have currently done, check sig), the 4.2 autotune usually gets up to 62C on load (prime95), and i´d shut it down fast, because i dont want to kill my chip's life. also i know i only have 4+2 phase, and that will limit me, but i didn't have enough money left over to get a fancier board T_T

also, with my current board i have been unsuccessful to get overclock working WITH turbo core, as it will usually ramp the speed down in idle states (which is fine by me) but then i suffer from the "throttling under load" problem (yes, i know that i have to turn APM off, but when i do turn APM off in the BIOS it also disables Turbocore?), another quirk with my board is the CPU and CPU/NB LLC only have settings for auto/disabled/enabled even though i see in the description to the right, a bunch of "settings?" not sure if they are settings or not, describing different load scenarios.(found out these are not available to my board)

thank you for any insight, and helpful tips , i really hope to possibly hear back from "ComputerRestore" or "mikezachlowe2004" as i have already read a lot of input you guys have contributed to this thread, but i will honestly enjoy as much input as i can get from anyone

The board that you have is not quite that good for overclocking a beast like FX8120, not sure how much power phase does it has, I was going to buy that one that you have but decided to go with a sabertooth, and Im now stable at 4.8ghz biggrin.gif with my new h100 cooler ^_^y

remember always to download the last version of your bios

FX 4170 @4600Mhz stable with 1.424v
I would love to get 5GHz stable. I've tried to pump up the voltage to 1.5v.
I could boot to Win with that on 5GHz but I rather had not stress tested it.
All I was doing was increasing multiplier and voltage.
Im limited to 4+1 phase power, i have this cooler:

300
which keeps my load temps arround 55°C

Any idea how to get 5GHz stable?

I haven't tried stabilizing yet so you never know. I'm waiting to get everything under water before stressing.
