So I'm an idiot I decided since I had to remove the bottom rad to fit the new psu I might as well break down the loop and see why I'm not cooling as well as I should be.... I disassembled the cpu block and found a little debris in there and also a little sludgy stuff on the top half of the block...pictures in a minute..

.But I said I'll just wash this thing out with the sprayer...took the "box" gasket out started spraying....yeah looks nice and clean now...almost too clean....because I shot my o ring down the damn sink drain lol...so now I finished putting her PC together and mines down pending an o ring for cpu block...But I think I can just clear the fittings on the rad with psu plugs if I put the plugs in first install both parts then put fittings and plumb the rad...it's gonna be damned tight...

I've been looking at some of the sales going on right now... and i think my next purchase for my pc will be 16gb of ddr3 1866 cas8 mushkin redline ram. price has come down like $15 for it... it will be a $130 upgrade but one i've been meaning to make for a while.

just can't get by with 8gb anymore... and my gskill are showing their age (4 years old of constant abuse now) ... i've had to back their overclock down a bit as they're getting a little unstable these past few months.

Hey guys long time lurker looking to get some advice regarding my situation.

I currently have an FX 8350 running at stock speeds and I've replaced the stock cooler with the Hyper 212 Evo so I was thinking of starting to overclock a little bit, but upon further research I've come to realize my motherboard is poorly suited for overclocking the FX series due to poor power phase design.

I really can't afford to buy a new mobo until around New Years but in the mean time I'd like to find out how far I might be able to safely push my CPU given the circumstances.

4.5 would be a good stopping point if your cooling and motherboard even let you get there.

I'd be quite happy if I ended up with 4.5 stable in the end with my current setup.

I think my cooling will be more than adequate for a mild overclock. Been running Prime 95 Small FFTs for a while now and AMD Overdrive reports I've got 32.1 degree Celcius Thermal Margin so thanks to living in a basement in Canada my temps might be alright.

Would I be best using AMD Overdrive for ocing or something like ASRock Extreme Tuner (I believe this came with my mobo on a CD)?

Thanks for the prompt reply

I had to take my 4.4GHz down to 4.3GHz on my little mATX Gigabyte board. Oh well, I've been contemplating getting an ATX mid tower and an Extreme6. Which from my understanding is new, compared to the Crosshair, Tooth, and UD3. Is it any good? Anyone on one currently? I'm a bit of an ASRock fanboi, but I'm most familiar with their Intel boards.

What's your budget? Do you plan on going multi-GPU at one point?

I have an Intel rig I run crossfire in currently. I bought the CPU to use in a spare board and now I'm bummed that the overclocking is so limited by voltage regulator quality. Just trying to decide if a $75 case and $140 board is worth a couple MHz.

As far as asrock i understand the extreme 9 is a good board.. my asrock fatality board seemed pretty good until i went to overclocking then i realized it just wasnt going to cut it... if you were going for a 4.3 4.4 4.5 overclock sure it wouldve been great but anything more and forget about it... it was voltage limited to 1.55 which would be ok EXCEPT it had no llc and the vdroop was horrible .14 from bios setting to in windows sometimes worse under load....using voltage offsets just simply ran the board to hard and heat was a problem even with a h220x kit on it and 120mm fan front and back of vrms and socket smile.gif... i understand the extreme 3 and 4 werent too bad either but cannot confirm or deny this...i can say the fatality wasnt worth the 139 i paid for it new when the saber was 169 at the time...

EDIT: had numbers off i thought it was 3 5 7 and 9 for the 990 frown.gif thanx flail smile.gif
