It just may not have it in it. I cant get my 8150 stable at anything above 4.6 right now to save my life. Ive tried all kinds of combinations of LLC, CPU/NB, HT Link and everything and even at voltages of 1.49, I cant get 4.7 to pass OCCT. I can get 4.8 to pass Intel Burn Test with no real problem but OCCT and Prime95 are a different story.

the key is to overclock with the least vcore you could boot with.

the FX processors dont like heat. smile.gif

Make sure you change the CPU overcurrent settings. That held me back for a bit with my 8350.

Thank you all I went a tried a different method to get it to overclock I raised the htt pretty high imo its currently at 333 mhz x 14.5 multiplier with on more tick to go on the multiplier so almost there I'm running aida to test stability atm so I'm hoping I can do it and keep it stable

Try OCCT or Prime95 for stability as well. I had mine running 4.8 and passing Intel Burn Test all day long. Total collapse under OCCT in less than a few seconds though. Linpack seems to work a whole lot better on FX chips than stuff like OCCT. That would be the one Id test with first to make sure itll handle it.
