Darius: i would send that back. don't even play with it

I would even request a good clocking batch for your troubles of them sending you an open box

I disabled all the cores except for 1 and 2, and 7 and 8 (7 and 8 are the ones that can't seem to run over 4.5Ghz without failing)
So with only running 4 cores, @ 4.6Ghz, cores 7 and 8 still fail with rounding errors, within a couple of minutes.
I will be RMAing this CPU through AMD, because 4.5Ghz is too close to the Turbo of 4.2, if this chip ever degrades even a bit, it will be cutting it close to causing myself future headaches.
I'm pretty sure this chip should have been binned as an 8320.

Try the Intel Burn Test at High. Do 20 runs. I believe if it passes you can ignore the Prime test. There is credible argumentation that the software needs adjustment for the Vishera design. Too many strange results on Prime 95 without corroboration from other tests.

Another thing to do if you havent already done it with your 212 is add a 2nd 120mm fan to it, as that can also make quite a bit of difference to your temps.

Also heres pics of my finished FX8350 rig with the custom water cooler fitted to this very special but unusual case which i just love...

Im having to leave the OC at 4.5ghz for now, as thats all i can get stable on my MSI GD-80 until MSI sort there **** out with a decent BIOS.

My 4.5Ghz overclock only takes 1.34v with Ultra High LLC. I never did check to see if I could get 4.6Ghz stable with more than 1.5v, but temps would be the primary issue at that point, for only 100Mhz extra lol. (It failed at 1.5v so I left it that, Socket temp was heading to 70+ anyways)
Try instead of multiplier only clocking to put the multiplier back to 20 on the 8350 and do fsb clocking. I have done this on my cpu after not being happy with 4.5 GHZ stable. I now have a fsb of 232 and multi of 20. My actual GHZ is 4.66. There is a bonus to FSB overclocking: you get better fps on your games and benchmarks. because of the higher HT linkspeeds you get.

BTW does your ai suite crash sometimes? mine does n it pisses me off lol

Well yeah me too! Still this is a lot better.
AI suite has never crashed on me. Have you tried re installing it?

I love that case! Looks great. I could add another but then I would have to loose my V-CORE1 fan. And without that the VRM gets up to Jesus hot!

Okay, this is helpful.

Assuming I would want to re-seat the NB, and by that I suppose you mean the heatsink, is there a procedure to get that bad boy off? As I look at it, nothing obvious hits me.

Didnt you have a spare cpuopt fan header?

The other fan you stick on it would plug into that

You could use a 2 to 1 fan splitter cable like this..

Or this if your fans are PWM..
