By that logic, everyone on here should be able to run 5ghz on their 8350/8320 chips because your experience proves so. I realize you got a good board, but when you say experience trumps google, you are saying that your experience trumps everyone else's. Just because yours is fine doesn't mean a problem can't exist with others. And i would say the endless amounts of "experiences" you can find through
google not from
google would prove this so. Experiences of many trumps experiences of one.
The flak i get for trying to help someone... I don't understand why putting a spot fan on the vrms would be the end of the world anyway, even if they didn't throttle. You would just be lowering temps and lengthening the life of your parts...
Because you didn't even read what he had before you assumed he was having the same problem you did is a good start for how it went down hill quickly. And yes, given the data, besides a bad batch or two, everyone should be capable of 5Ghz. Almost everyone who doesn't is limited by the cooling or is unwilling to put in more volts then they feel comfortable with (which is good, never do more then you feel is ok), as seen in the data collection thread if you look at cooling and voltages. Very very few people put in 1.5 to 1.525v and don't get 5Ghz out of it. Those who don't, get 4.8, and are usually on a H80/100 or Antec 920.
It's isn't that putting on a fan is the end of the world, it's that you said they need
a fan. That is false. There is a very fine line between spreading false information ("They need a fan.") and helping someone get temps more in line ("You could try putting a fan over the VRMs to help lower temps"). It's very important to avoid the first option.Edited by KyadCK - 1/18/13 at 11:29pm
