AMD FX 8120 overclocking

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What is the max temp that i can hit with my fx 8120 before it starts to throttle and be unstable?
I heard its around 60 - 65 but i can't be sure.
I want to get it overclocked to about 4.5 ghz @ 1.35V

AMD suggests the MAX core temp is 61C. I would expect throttling anywhere above that temp.

What are your current clocks/voltages/temps?

4.2GHZ 1.29V but jumps to 1.35
idle @ 36C because its hot in my room
gets up to 55C under load.. but thats with it throttling.. When i get my motherboard im sure it will get a little hotter than that.

thats also CPU temp..
is it the cpu temp or core temps that matter? because the core temps get to 50C

Make sure ur CPU temp(not Cores temp) below 61*c. 1.32v is enough for 4.1-4.2ghz.
