Trying to overclock an FX-8350 - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Thread Starter 
Well sorry for the triple post but I solved my problem so figured this thread will just die anyways...

So I set my voltage back to stock settings. Someone in another thread recommended using LLC in the bios. I set it to high and then slowly built up the multiplier in 0.5 increments. I got it overclocked to 4.4 Ghz stable.

Seems that was the issue. My temps are a little to high though for my comfort at 4.4Ghz. Socket temp was at 72 C under load and core temps got to 64 C and at that point I stopped the stress test. I'm going to see if I can drop the voltage a little and still keep it stable at 4.4.

I jgot mine to 4.4 just by using the Auto boost function on my Sabertooth 990FX. Didn't have to adjust anything..not even the voltage, as it's still at 1.3v and it's ROCK SOLID with over 5 days of %100 on both CPU AND GPU running Boinc projects.

I do have a setting for 4.6 too at 1.4v but my cpu was going up to 68c by itself and up to 73c when my GPU was full load for 24hrs or so as well bc of the higher case temps.

I've got a NHD-14 btw...so yeah, it's air cooled. I'm pretty happy with 4.4Ghz on air tho with my CPU never going over 59c even when the GPU has been going %100 all day long too. When I increase my case ventilation I'll kick it back up to 4.6 or 4.7, but I need some better case fans. Right now I'm just using the ~43CFM fans that came with the case, so I'm thinking about throwing some noctua's ~93cfm fans all around...which should help smile.gif

Did your motherboard OC it using FSB or Clock speeds? I'm currently working on my overclock with the sabertooth, trying to keep the voltages as low as possible, 4.5ghz requires 1.4v it seems. Unstable at 1.38v with intel burn/prime95.
