post #7361 of 67344
As you can see above, cooling should be optimal. I included one pic with the side on to show that there's even a (80mm, I think) fan blowing on the mobo, and the case has decent ventilation (Thermaltake Soprano RS). I replaced the stock 120mm fan in the exhaust with a better one, especially because the stock one had a bad bearing and was loud and didn't run well. Right now it's blowing into the case, not sure if it should be blowing out instead. Also, it can take up to two 120mm fans on the side, maybe I should go for those instead of the 80mm fan that's there and replace the cone in the upper vent area going to the processor fan?

^ General way to do fans. As it stands right now, you don't have a real exhaust for the heat. I'd turn that back fan around.

Don't blame the motherboard problems on AMD... You are running a 125w FX chip on a board that doesn't even have support for more then 95w. This isn't AMD's fault.

I figured it should be blowing out, but there was nothing on it to indicate the direction, and I just installed it yesterday and have been preoccupied with other general hardware failures to check it until now. I'll turn it around. Probably why the case felt so warm while all other temps seemed normal.

So you're pretty much 100% convinced it's the mobo? I'm a noob, so I don't know for sure, I've been trying to pinpoint it exactly to either the processor, mobo, memory or BIOS settings. Are you 100% sure?

I don't blame AMD for motherboard problems. What I do blame them for is how they compare in general to Intel right now, and how I personally feel about where AMD should be right now:
  1. Why are we still at 125w when the competition is at 77w?
  2. Why are we still at 32nm when "they" are at 22nm and probably going to 17nm soon?
  3. Why does the FX-8350 still have an on-board NB when the competition, and even the FPU chips, have on-die NB?
  4. Why are we still pretty much limited to 1866MHz memory when "they" have 2666+ MHz?
  5. The 8350, which a good processor, shouldn't be the *best* chip AMD has to offer right now, considering. It's good, but how does it compare?
  6. AMD, while they've been behind Intel since the Core 2 line (They OWNED Intel in the Athlon XP/64 line), has always at least had a price vs. performance edge on the mid-range Intel chips. They're losing that edge now because similarly priced mid-range Intel chips are outperforming our top AMD chips, so the price vs. performance isn't stacking up like it used to.
  7. There are so many other issues with the architecture that I could go on for another hour about it.

I will continue to support AMD as I have for 10+ years, but they are slipping - once it's not even justifiably debatable anymore, then what do we do? Yeah, I'm frustrated, not because of the issues I'm having, but with AMD because of their undeniable shortcomings right now. The 8350 should be a $150 chip and they should be offering even better chips in the $200 - $300 range as well. I'm getting frustrated with them in general because of these things.

  1. Why are we still at 125w when the competition is at 77w?
  2. Why are we still at 32nm when "they" are at 22nm and probably going to 17nm soon?
  3. Why does the FX-8350 still have an on-board NB when the competition, and even the FPU chips, have on-die NB?
  4. Why are we still pretty much limited to 1866MHz memory when "they" have 2666+ MHz?
  5. The 8350, which a good processor, shouldn't be the *best* chip AMD has to offer right now, considering. It's good, but how does it compare?
  6. AMD, while they've been behind Intel since the Core 2 line (They OWNED Intel in the Athlon XP/64 line), has always at least had a price vs. performance edge on the mid-range Intel chips. They're losing that edge now because similarly priced mid-range Intel chips are outperforming our top AMD chips, so the price vs. performance isn't stacking up like it used to.
  7. There are so many other issues with the architecture that I could go on for another hour about it.

I will continue to support AMD as I have for 10+ years, but they are slipping - once it's not even justifiably debatable anymore, then what do we do? The 8350 should be a $150 chip and they should be offering even better chips in the $200 - $300 range as well. I'm getting frustrated with them in general because of these things.

Intel has more money. They can afford to spend more on RnD.

I get that. And I'm not here to rant about how AMD loses to Intel. I'm here to get my chip running, and it was just a rant about how I wish AMD wasn't so far behind - if they were running 77w like the 3570k, I wouldn't even be seeing these stability issues on my crappy mobo. But that's neither here nor there, and I shouldn't have brought it up, but it needed to be said.

fully understandable for your comments. I believe, It shouldn't be questions of "Why" AMD is behind, but praises of how close they are.
