Well, I decided to play with some very brave voltages.

1.65v was too much for my RS 360 to keep cool! I blew past 68c after one pass of IBT and gave up. Oddly enough at 1.57v to 1.6v it stays about 62c max. I'm gonna try and go for higher clocks tomorrow with this extra voltage but right now I'm too damn tired and sick.

I feel like I've done a poor job of explaining my P95 problems.

P95 is the one and only program to ever crash my PC (Since the last CPU upgrade that is, it nonstop hardlocked my 8120 to the point I just gave up on OCing, although somehow that chip is stable to at least 4.7GHz.

The logic people use to justify the enormous voltage requirements to stabilize P95 bothers me. It basically says that nothing else can gauge the stability of your OC in any meaningful way, whatsoever, i.e

IBT(LinX), AIDA64, AMD OverDrive, OCCT, Reality.



For my OC, I use all of the above without Prime because in the best case scenario, Prime95 is the most ridiculous thing I've ever run ( according to v requirements ) on any cpu ever.

Which means that stabilizing Prime does 1 of 2 things;

Makes your PC able to run Prime95;
-or-
Makes your PC run that much more voltage to guarantee that it can run Prime95.

Both are worst case scenarios, because the first option was a joke.

I've never had a problem running any program/bench/game/(you name it) except Prime, and the worst part is that I've run them all at some point.

So stabilizing Prime for me has become an E-peen type objective.

FX chips are too hot for those type of shenanigans.

My case is different, HAF-XM, slightly smaller than yours.
Prime95 runs fine at stock 21 hours.
How many sticks of RAM do you have ? Do you have the proper timings ?
Are you running the memory at higher clock than you were with the Phenom by any chance ?
Trying booting Memtest and make sure the RAM is good first with the settings you have.
I know you said you just changed the CPU but you have to eliminate all possible causes.
If it fails at stock then you likely have a hardware issue. Could be the CPU, but I would look at the RAM too.
If memtest fails with all your sticks, try fixing RAM settings, and if that still fails, try with just one stick.

Thanks for taking the time to reply!

I am running 4x4gb of ram. Before F9 bios, my computer defaulted them to 1333. With F9 it defaulted to 1600. I tried lowering the speed back to 1333 but that didnt solve the issues. I now have my 1090t BACK in and I am running at 1600 stable with an overclock of 3.9ghz. No issues.

I did boot into Memtest and ran with no issues.

The lab guys over at AMD got a hold of two 990 chipset boards. They tested the first one and said no issues. They are going to test on a Gigabyte and let me know the results.

Very odd how we can have vastly different experience. 1090t overclocked = stable. FX-8350 STOCK = sooo unstable.

BTW, what are your temperatures with your Noctua?

I've just noticed that on my setup CPUz shows a constant CPU speed but AIDA64 shows variations in speed which are caused by Bus Speed drops, when it goes around 190 instead of 200 - like in the image below. Maybe it's erroneous monitoring for some software?


Well, I tell you that my both the aida with 200 Mghz cpuz gives me the bus and does not move at all.
As you got apm configured master mode? the turbo core? C6E the c1e  and c6e  support and ?. No longer that I try to run the turbo core accordingly.

Eh, I got a 5.2Ghz 1.6v 3DMark run with my H100 just by putting it outside in a ~10C ambient. It's not that hot.

So is it worth upgrading from a 1090T to the FX-8320?

Probably not...I am only upgrading because with my employee discount and what I can sell my 1090t for it becomes a wash. Otherwise I wouldn't.
