Submitted my 8350
question regarding stability.. do we have to pass like 30 runs of IBT or something specific? I can run this at 5ghz on the original M5A97 rev.1 with no problem in any of my games or anythign I do really, Its just not stable when all 8 cores are pushed to the max which is kind of bothersome..
It will run any benchmark I throw at it except prime95 (instacrash) and more than 1 run of IBT, (socket temps skyrocket to like 70C while Coretemps read 62C then I crash...lol
I think its just this board though I will test to see if I get different results with the CHV rog thats coming in a few days.
Oh and another note,
I wanted to know how much NB overclock would improve performance, and I have to say you get better MaxxMem memory scores with just CPU overclocking, pushing the NB to 2700 yielded an average increase of .90 or less in that benchmark,
But, NB overclocking can greatly increase the your mem copy/read/write and latency speeds, the overall MaxxMem memory score isnt affect by an increase in all of those areas.Edited by tinouthedino - 10/28/12 at 1:50pm
