Bought an Asus FX99 Pro R2.0 (great board for the money)
And a AMD FX-8320 (bad chip needs alot of voltage for high overclocks)
Also decided to invest in a Corsair H110 AiO cooler (semi okay, better than my air cooler)
Some pics from the rig, i think i did an awesome job on my case to fit in the 280mm Rad
Anyways my first at OC'ing the chip i quickly found out i hit a voltage wall trying to hit 4,7 ghz
Could manage 4,6 gig with 1,465 but just the extra 100mhz i need 1.5 volts for prime95 stable.
So its not really a good chip to oc with, atm im running it at 1.52volts and my H110 can keep the temps nice in the mid 50's.
But before all this i had trouble with the cpu would thermal throttle, and from hwinfo i saw the cpu sensor (not package temp) was hitting 70 degress celcius, and that when the thermal throttle kicked in.
So i searched the motherboard for hotspots that didnt get cooled down, and i found it.
Im guessing they are part of the VRM circuit, and because im using such high voltages they are getting hot, so i placed a 120mm case fan over them, and since then i have great success and stability is no issue. After a long run of prime95 the temps are around 61-64degrees well under the limit where thermal throttle will kick in.
Anyways just wanted to post my findings and my experience with the vishera.
In hindsight i think i should just have spend a bit more money and gotten the FX-8350
