Inquiry about FX 8320 Overclocking

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I just ordered a brand new FX 8320 and it should be here tomorrow but I want to get a few things sorted out in my brain before I overclock the piss out of it. Im currently running a 4.7Ghz OC on my FX 6100 using just the multiplier. I have a few questions about the FX 8320.

- Is there much if any difference in the way I have to go about overclocking the FX 8320 compared to my FX 6100? If so, what?

- Ive surfed forums and found no solid answer on what the maximum safe overclocking temperature is for the FX 8320. Has anyone figured this out yet? I will have my Corsair H80 on it so it will stay relatively cool.

- What are my max voltages for overclocking this beast?

1. a bit
2. 62c on cores
3. I would say 1.4v on budget air cooler 1.5v on high end air cooler , more only on high end water cooling

I have a H80 too. I'd say don't go above 1.52v under load (even though you might cap the thermal safe limit before reaching 1.51v). My room is canada-grade cold and at 4.8/1.475v it was reporting 59°C under IBT.

Well it seems to be a voltage hungry beast. 4.4Ghz at 1.52V..... ew..... temps reach 60Cish cant really push past that much.

That must be a bad combination with your CPU/MB/Cooler

for 4.4ghz you should hover around mid 1.4v. One of my FX8320 on air cooling is at 4.4ghz 1.44v.

Not sure if your board has LLC or not, but after a few weeks of tinkering around, I found that LLC is the biggest culprit of un-needed heat and voltage. If you have LLC, I'd turn it off or use the lowest settings. Retune your 4.4ghz settings to see if that helps.
