BIOS overclocking is definitely the way to go! thumb.gif

Just like mine doh.gif

So your just leaving the voltage on auto?

yeah he does with his second one
auto is how it's set by default.
he starting upping the multi with standart voltage
and got a great overclock but not all chips are capable of that
i can't get it higher then 3.6 on standart volts

Up until 4.3, yes. When I tried 4.4, it crashed, so then I gradually began upping the voltage until I would get past 10 minutes of prime. Then another 100Mhz, Prime, Crash, Voltage, Prime, 100Mhz, Prime, Crash, voltage.... You get the idea. Anyways, I think youre going to need atleast 1.34V to reach 4.3GHz.

It's amazing to me that you can have the same CPU made using the same production means yet there is such variation between them

i can post my settings but the the fx chips are all different.(you saw 2advanced who only needed 1.36v for 4.3 stable i need 1.42v for that, most FX chips do for that matter)
CPU voltage : 1.4875
Multi : 23
and i have a H100 with 4 fans that can just keep my temps below 62 on stability test's
so that's an issue to watch because some fx chips really run hot

Wait a second, don't FX chips begin to degrade when running in the 55-60 degree C mark?

You could download AMD Overdrive, and use the program to automatically overclock your processor for you. I've got mine overclocked to 22.5 multiplyer, getting me close to 4.5 Ghz. Pretty stable too.You can change your memory clock too, and different multiplyers work better at different settings for some reason. Play around, and you'll learn what settings your particular board, memory, and processor work together at. Just watch your temperature and keep your processor below 180 degrees faranheit, and you should be fine. Have fun!

Hey OP, are you using P95 as your stability tester? Seeing as I have an FX chip as well, P95 just doesnt seem to work as well on these chips anymore it would report errors on my chip even overclocking it just by a bit. Have you tried another stability tester? I would try OCCT if you havent. Stressed it much harder, and after finding a spot that worked for me, havent crashed once. Just my 2 cents smile.gif

I own an 8150 and i would say just to use the bios for overclocking this processor.
