So... I decided to replace mh H80 with which I managed to push my FX8350 to 4.7 @1,412 V
with a watercooling kit the alphacool NexxxOs 360 DDC/xt45 in order to push to 5Ghz
First run I get it stable at 4,9Ghz @1,45V but it didnt stay stable.
I did play around with temps a lot but getting stable @4.8 or above seems impossible, the funny thing is my core temps even at very high voltage .(1,5) are not that high (max I saw was 54C, usually 44-46 during IBT) and Im wondering what going wrong here...
(The facts bellow are at different Voltages)
One thing Im worried about is that during Intel Burn Test I see a huge difference between Socket (cpu) Temps and Core Temps (I use Hwmonitor) my cores could be running @40C and the socket @60C.
Another thing that bugs me is that often (again during IBT) and while the temps would be core 40C socket 50C (or a little more) the cpu multiplier falls from X24 to X7 for no apparrent reason. (cool/quiet, c1,c6,apm are disabled)
With my corsair H80 I would get Cores@58-62C and socket@66-68C but IBT would be stable , of course I didnt try 4.8 or above with my H80
Should I blame it on my ram? It only runs at 1600Mhz anything above that even at loose timing is unstable
Should I blame it on the motherboard? It is not the best out there but still...
Could it be the watercooling?
Should I blame it on the Rain???
I would appreciate any help I could get my setup is this
CPU: AMD FX8350@4.72(2.6NB)|MB: M5A990X EVO|VGA: Sapphire 7970 OC Dual X
16GB ddr3 HyperX 1600mHZ RAM|XFX 850W BE Semi Modular|AlphaCool Nexxxos DDC 360 XT45mm|CM Cosmos II Case| Samsung p2770 HD Monitor
P.S.I tried loads of Voltages with LLC from Medium to Ultra High
