Is my FX 8350 defective or is it my Motherboard? - Page 3

I would just call it a day and upgrade the motherboard to something with 8+2 power phase and a 9xx series NB chip, preferably 990FX NB.

Its not about phase count, its all about quality. There are phases with different amperage too.

Also, according to the spec sheet this motherboard supported Bulldozer since first BIOS version so its supposedly fully compatible.

I'm not saying that VRMs aren't an issue here, just that you don't have any reason to say they are.

hello,
I have to say the same as the others, that mobo will make a great fire rather than a great overclock.
I don't have the 83xx chip but the 8120 can achive a 4ghz oc with little voltage as I got 1.29v to get that stable, but like the other say, that mobo's vrm's are bad. the price of a good oc mobo vs that one should tell you why.£45 vs £150.
just to cheer you up, my mobo's bad too, £90 mobo that can't clock this 8120 very well at all, 4ghz-4.1ghz max.

try turning off some modules, it helps, can get 6 core up to 4.6. with two modules you should be back to a stock clock of 4ghz at least.

I know it's about quality but when we are talking about a 7xx series MoBo in the 50-60 dollar range and 4+2 power phase, it is completely natural to assume that the power phase is NOT of high standards.... if it were a 100-120 micro-ATX board with 4+2 then yes I would assume it had high quality high amperage power phase

oh, forgot, have you tried turning off APM and cool and quite?
might get your clock to stock of 4ghz.

Its not about high standards, its just about what should work and what shouldnt, if their page says it should then it has to, atleast at stock clocks.

in a perfect world yea.... but obviously it's not or he wouldn't be posting here. fact is, he has a 760 NB chip which is an entry chip that is now two generations old... combine that with what is most likely an AVERAGE 4+1(or 2) power phase and you have a scenario where it just isn't ideal to run the chip on that board, no matter who says what...

OP I would just not over stress the chip and pay close attention to it until you get your board swapped out. just watch temps and make sure they aren't doing anything funny

The GA-78LMT-USB3 should be equipped with VRM cooling.

I'll keep a close eye on the temps until I get a new Board, thanks. I have it running at stock speed now thanks to the advice and BIOS tweaks suggested (Not overclocked) Can you guys recommend a good Motherboard for this chip and overclocking for around £120-£150? I'll be grabbing that hopefully in a couple of weeks.

Thanks.

I myself have a ga 970a ud3, which is even under your range and it works well, it is also pretty ok for overclocking. If you are looking for something better then that I've heard the Crosshair V Formula is working wonders.
