There is a slight risk of ESD which can damage your chip.
Good point, you dont want to be lapping the cpu on carpet with leather shoes on. A bare concrete floor is where you want to lap, for many reasons, assuming you dont want to work outdoors on a cold ground. smile.gif

Ok but I dont think my cooling is sufficient. During Idle HWiNFO says that the VRM temps from the Asus EC are at 50-60 deg c.

Turned CnC back on since I've got 4.2 stable (stock VID biggrin.gif )

I am not talking about the ESD coming from yourself.
You can imagine sliding the cpu itself creates allot of friction and thus it can build up a decent amount of static.

A quick Google search came up with this link, a ESD killed cpu caused by lapping. Be sure to wet sand always.

Just wanted to take a moment to say a giant thank you for this excellent guide, and specifically for the turbo overclock section. It's made finding a balance between acceptable temps and high performance infinitely easier. I'm running an FX 8320 on an Asus M5A99FX Pro 2.0 motherboard, and I've got it rock solid at 4/4.3/4.6GHz with a 233MHz FSB. I don't like heating my whole apartment with just my CPU, so that's as far as I'm going, but I'm very, very happy with the performance improvement I got out of the simple steps in this guide.

I did take it as high as 245MHz FSB for clocks of 4.3/4.55/4.65, but I could feel the change in the room temperature, so I decided to back off. My Hyper 212 Evo has a hard time keeping up at that level, as does my air conditioner. Besides, I don't notice that much performance improvement over the 233MHz FSB.

This should be fine on my Asus M5A99FX Pro R2.0?
post #2276 of 4095
Hi everyone

8320 4.5 ghz 1.34 Vcore
LLC on hight
CPU current capabilities 130 %
CPU power phase controle optimized
after a 30 min run on OCCT temps are 50 on the socket and 42 on the core ( h100i push HAF X case)
are those good temps ? and can i activate the CnQ option when overclocking ?
many thanks

Yes, but you can get your socket temps lower with a fan on the back of the mobo.

Sure. Enable CnC, C1E and C6. Set voltages to offset instead of using fixed voltages.

Hey guys.
I was very excited when I got my 8350, but when I started overclocking I quickly got disappointed: I set the vcore at the standard 1.356 and tweaked all the other settings according to the guide and that already put my socket temps at 72C, which is not right giving that my core temp was nearly 20C lower. I'm afraid it's my VRMs heating it up. I tried putting a 140mm fan on the back of the MB but that didn't change my temps at all. What else could I try to cool things down?

What is your room temp?

If your running the cooling solution listed in your rig sig that would be the reason why.

You'll find there isn't much else that builds heat like an 8350 (when OCing especially) but without more of your systems current setup it's hard to say.

At this point I'm thinking a lack of cooling/air flow.
Without a lot of air flow you could have some heat soaking going on too.

It would help everyone if you'd update your rig sig too.
