post #27831 of 67892
temps seem a bit high for that voltage, but then I'm not familiar with that cooler... I bet you can get a higher clock at that voltage too... never actually tried with a 8320, but most people I've known could get similar results to a 8350 out of it... overall though... good job!

... here is something I'd like opinions on... http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/1994144

unless I get another cold day or a better cooler this is the best my cooling will take... gpu is volt locked and I can't go but a few mhz higher on it before it destabilizes... sooo this is pretty much the best gaming OC for cpu and gpu I can do...

Hey guys! Ive been getting the OC itch and I think I'm going to try OCing my 8320 even though I don't need it, I'm curious to its limits.
I was wondering, is there any settings I NEED to change? do I turn the "turbo boost" off?
settings I should try, or just things to know when ocing these chips on a gigabyte bios? tongue.gif


Edit:

well I tried the auto tune on amd CCC, it got up to 4.4 on stock volts and it failed when testing 4.5 and never went above 57c, granted its not a prime test, so I did just that:

when running at 4.4@stock volts everything was going good for about 5 min then, on core #7

"Possible hardware failure, consult readme.txt file, restarting test.
ERROR: ILLEGAL SUMOUT"


which according to the readme online, its a software/driver problem, I'm not exactly sure how to pin this down though, its a fresh install of windows 8.1, only using KB/M, AFAIK I'm fully updated O.o

AMD CCC has the auto tune you have to try before it gives you CPU OC options, should I try it to see what it says or go straight into bios?
Do not use auto tune, it never really works. Generally speaking raise your multi one step at a time whilst changing nothing else and see if it is stable, if stable up one more till it isn't, then add voltage and test again till you reach a max temp or voltage.

Although you may wanna reseat your cooler. Doesn't look to be working well. Cant get worse.

well I went against your advice a little and tried the auto tune (before your post) tongue.gif
didn't seem to hurt it and I was curious to see what it would stop at, I still plan to go into the bios and fine tune.

why may you say that about my cooler? because of my post about the TMPIN0~2? or my 57c @4.4?
I had myself worried about I now realize for my board they aren't all cpu socket temps like it was for my m4a87 +
TMPIN0 is the "mainboard" I think its down by the SB or near the ram, I think its meant to record "ambient-like" temps
TMPIN1 is the CPU socket, its always the same as PIN2 or a few degrees above
and TMPIN2 is the CPU itself, Its identical to the CPU chip
at least for my mobo.

it easily could be a bad seat though, I've only done it a few times, but going from 55c to 58c isn't much of a temp climb when going from 3.5 to 4.4, at least IMO but I could be wrong haha

OOOPS I see now I got you mixed up with the other guy posted above you, his were high.

@Deadboy, I dont want to add volts for moar clock speed, since 1.325 Core Voltage (1.3 is said to be the MAX or else your card is pretty much did not win the lottery and you are shortening its lfiespan) and 1.63 Mem can get me to 1.2GHz/6950 Memory. However, diminishing returns, this PO$ they call GPU Tweak and the silicon lottery all tell me its in vain since at those temps it hits like 71C, rights now its like 62 Max..

Most important question to me are the temps: After 10 minutes of Prime95 (Small FFT) my CPU temp reads around 70 °C (Package Temp is at 53 °C). I'm going to run a full stability test soon, but first I'd like to know from you guys if you think that this Overclock is OK.

My motherboard is a Asus M5A99FX and I've got a Thermalright HR-02 Macho Rev. A CPU cooler. I used the thermal paste that came with the cooler, but I also got some Arctic Silver 5 that I could use if that would improve the temps.



I would start with doing a remount of the cooler. Temps look a bit high on that voltage. Again I don't have experience with that particular cooler but it should cool better I guess.
Use the dot method to apply the paste.

Also what is the stock voltage of your chip? Some have a higher stock voltage then others. If you don't know how to read this: reset the bios settings and see what the vcore defaults to.

I may be getting an FX-8320 CPU and (possibly) an ASUS TUF Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 motherboard tomorrow. Will I need to update the BIOS for that motherboard in order for the FX-8320 to work, or is the motherboard already pre-updated to work with the FX-8320/8350 CPU's?

If you get the board brand new it should already have the needed bios version. Mine, which I bought a week ago, did.

I am sure you will be happy with the board.

Yeah, I'm most likely getting the FX-8320 CPU tomorrow, but I'm still not sure yet if I can realistically afford to get a new motherboard. That being said, if I do get the FX-8320, I'll most likely need to upgrade to a higher-end motherboard, as the one I have now is a lower-end motherboard, and probably won't last very long with an FX CPU installed, even at stock speeds. If I need to get a better motherboard (which I'll most likely have to do) I'm going to spend the money and get a good motherboard, not another cheap one, which is why I'm choosing the ASUS TUF Sabertooth 990FX R2.0. It seems to be the best, most reliable, and most durable motherboard for under $200 (in my area) and the fact that the motherboard has a 5-year warranty (instead of the standard 3-year) is pretty awesome, in my opinion. I've heard nothing but fantastic things about the motherboard, so... yeah tongue.gif

I'll probably just try and sell my current CPU and motherboard to make up the loss in cash.
