Right now I'm testing 4.9 GHZ with the follow below. I'm currently using a XSPC EX360 Rad with an XSPC block.
I am trying to hit 5.0 Ghz stable with at least 1 hour of prime. I have been overclocking for awhile, but I never really messed with the FSB. I have been reading to get the FX8320 over 5.0 GHZ I will need to do a mix of both multi and FSB overclocking. I would like some more any help that I can get into calibrating the settings in the BIOS.
in this very thread, first post there is a table with lots of overclocking setting from other users, take a look and play with it see what others did.
also one thing to remember when playing with FSB is that memory,NB and HT will increase as well so if you doing it FSB (and you can do it all just by doing that) keep downclocking other bits and keep them as near stock as poss. when you get your desired clock on the CPU you can start playing with the rest.
Out of curriousity - what temp you getting with this rad?
