Wait that's only on the first 2 or 3 tests.

My score seems a bit low also when comparing to FlailScHLAMP's numbers for 4.7GHz. Mine was at 4.9GHz

To be fair CSSOriken, Johan, and myself put up some impressive sub 5ghz numbers.
@4.84ghz! (Click to show)
once Around 5ghz more ppl chip in scores lol

OC your GPU

But then, you will need water.

And you will need larger rads if you OC your CPU and the GPU at once.

Then go for the PT Bios. And TRIXXX

does we haz challenger?

Voodoo! Curse you! tongue.gif

Yeah, I forgot about you. Actually, I forgot who it was. But that someone goes with the name of either Johan, Orkin, or Flail (or an offspring of you 3 tongue.gif )at the back of my head!

Hopefully someone here can help. I've been insanely confused on CPU temps. I can't figure out which temp is the actual CPU and which is the socket. Using HWinfo64, There is a CPU 0 and CPU 0 Package under the CPU section, and a CPU and Motherboard under the motherboard section. Not sure how to tell exactly what it all is, but maybe I can just list the max temps of each and someone will know? It's the Stormtrooper rig in my sig... I'll also attach a pic.

Max temps for these 4 things are:
CPU 0: 39.6 C
CPU 0 Package: 39.6 C
CPU: 52.0 C
Motherboard: 33.0 C

I was told at one point that CPU 0 is the actual CPU, but I find it hard to believe that the socket is hitting 52 C while the CPU value is only 39.6 C. While running OCCT, the CPU 0 value will fluctuate 3-4 degrees each way while the CPU value stays solid at 52.

Just in case.. Specs are:
8350 stock clocks
ASUS M5 A97 R2.0
16GB DDR3

I appreciate any help! cheers.gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

They are correct.

CPU 0 - is the Core Temp
CPU (under ITEXXXXX) - is the Socket Temp

In most cases, Socket is higher than cores. Unless you have a high end board and employ active cooling at the back of the mobo along with an actively cooled VRM section, that has been well recommended by everyone in here, it will hold true.
post #48095 of 67895
Awesome, thanks. I don't have anything on the back of the motherboard, but I do have a 120mm right on the VRM heatsinks to help cool it a bit.

On a side note, does the socket temp usually stay that 10-15 degrees higher than the CPU while overclocking? I know I don't have a high end board.. And its not particularly a very good overclocking one. But at that socket temp there isn't much head room. Once I get my Dremel back I will be putting a fan behind the socket to help a bit too, but that is months away. Only hoping for a smallish overclock at the moment. thumb.gif

Thanks again! cheers.gif

I'm curious on whether I want to OC my GPU as high as the stock voltage will allow me. My question is how do you check your GPU OC for stability? What kind of program do you use?

Mediocre boards have that trait. (no offense)

@Alastair have done almost every possible means to improve his board but the limits are there. He's using a M5A99 EVO IIRC. Not that I kill your hopes or anything. But that's one thing to bear in mind. Though I am not that knowledgeable of your board. biggrin.gif

Instability like Games Crashing, FireStrike not finishing the test, biggrin.gif , artifacts, etc. are all signs of some sort of instability to the cards.

Some say Furmark, some say Heaven. But I'd still say, if you games are running fine with your OC, they're good.

Ah it's all good. Like I said, I know it's not too great. Got it a year and a half ago as a combo with the 8350 for $120 at microcenter. Really good deal at that price! biggrin.gif Looks like the 8350 is $150 there alone... Mainly just want to overclock to say I did anyway. Won't get too much performance out of it... Although I would like to push this V8 cooler and see if it can keep up with these newer coolers! If not then a new motherboard and a DH-15 will be the next upgrades. thumb.gif

If you're not into high OC's at the moment, depending on your chip, 4.5 should be a good spot to be on. thumb.gif Above that will be an uphill battle between
1. heat,
2. board quality, and
3. chip lottery.

Skip the D15 if you have your plans for greater OCs. It won't offer much headroom than what you have right now. Water is on another league.

I'm not a huge fan of the custom water loops, and from what I've read here the CLCs aren't much better than something like the DH15. I got the Storm Trooper case specifically for these giant air coolers thumb.gif But I will see what happens I guess. I'll aim for 4.5, and worst case I test my wife's 8350 and if it does better then I secretly swap it out with mine devil.gif She only plays WoW and Minecraft and indie games anyway. I may also need to work more on case airflow... Been testing things out over the past month and have dropped the socket temp from 56 to 52. This case un-modded doesn't have great airflow through the upper section sadly.

Again, thanks for the advice and help! cheers.gif

Any recommendations on a good motherboard for the 8350? Preferable something not too pricey, but decent with overclocking. I'd like to try to hit 5gz on air! (I'll modify my mini fridge to push cold air into the case if I have to!) thumb.gif
