max fx8120 overclock

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
well i have finally determined my max overclcok with the cooler i have and had before. anyway this is just my experience i can get to a max overclock of 4.4ghz at 1.344v, (i had a nhd14 now i have a h80(both performed the same and both couldn't get past 4.4 d14 maybe actually ran 2c cooler) but for the space saving and temp diff i am not going back to my nhd14.

only with these settings at 4.5ghz i need to much vcore i can get it stable no problem but will hit 61 on the cores so hence my 4.4 limit

turbo core disabled
pic3=100
multiplier=22
fsb 200
ht link 2200
nb 2200
llc=extreme
cpu nb llc=extreme
cpu np votage=1.30
vcore= 1.30v (under load 1.344v)
dram ram set to 1.50
memeory at 1333mhz(9-9-9-24-34)
all power saving setting are disabled and both speed spectrums disabled
everything else is set to auto.

y-cruncher works my cores harder and gives me hotter temps if i use p95 on most heat setting i get max core temp of 51 but with one hour of ycruncher it will show a failed overclock and max temps within a hour and be stable after that.

anyway there you go so unless your have a h100 or actual custome loop system 4.4ghz is prolly what your gonna get out of this chip and stay within the thermal limits

hope this helps some, my system is listed as well in my sig so you know the rest of my parts.

It's helpful, but each cpu is different.

yea it is just more or so a guide line, i know that most need a higher vcore than i do to get 4.4 and all of us know no matter what voltage you use the fx chips get hot

this is after an hour of testing on y-cruncher, i have tested it on p95 for 16hours and y-cruncher for 2hours this is just a test i am doing now to show people here the overclock and temps

as you can see the test has been going on longer the current cpu core temps dropped from 53 to 48 and should stay in the high 40's for as long as i test it. but it did max out at 55 on two cores and 54 on the rest of them
