Lets hear some opinions on your sucesse with overclocking the FX series of CPu's...What I want to know is whats working for you....FSB increase or Multiplyer increase......Lets hear it:)

I have my FX4100 overclocked to 4.4 GHZ right now, with just a multiplier increase (to 22) and a slight Voltage increase. Couldn't get the frequency up very high without stability problems, got it to like 245? but had the multiplier way down to around 16 or so. Seems like with my particular chip, I have sort of plateaued at 4.4 ghz, can't seem to break past it.

That depends on hoq many ramz you have. more ramz means less stability when overclocking FSB, so you might want to stick with multi if youre doing 32gb.

I use a combination of both. At this very moment I have the multiplier at 21 and FSB at 220 MHz.
post #6 of 10
I use both, because for some reason, i cant get a multi OC stable under 4ghz....
post #7 of 10
I have used both with only the multiplier and multiplier + FSB without any issue with either way. I settled for both because I wasn't able to get my RAM up 1866MHz rated speed stable with only using the multiplier I had to up the FSB to 233MHz. I also have both my NB ad HT at 2530MHz. CPU is currenly @ 4.89GHz with 1.45v. With my Vdroop on my board idle voltage is 1.38v and 100% CPU usage on all 8 cores maxes at 1.44v. Idle CPU temp is 29c and max 100% usage temp is 65c with an H80. Core temp mind you is about 10c lower.

My Fx8150 liked between 250Fsb to 300Fsb an was able to run 4.7Ghz on water. but my ram overclocks very very well. good way to see what works better is to try an overclock an run cenibench 11.5 an save the score then try a different overclock an run it again till you find what your setup likes.

That is an AWESOME overclock! 55C temps at basically 4.9 with a modest H80 cooling. That is very nice indeed. Have you tried increasing the NB speed?

NB and HT both running @ 2530MHz. Anything over 2600 on the NB and I start having stability issues.
