No worries man, it's not always easy to read what I mean smile.gif

Thanks for the advice. I have tried different combinations of RAM sticks, I have a G.Skill kit with 4x4GB 2133MHz modules. Those allow a higher overclock at lower Vcore compared to my Team Xtreem Vulcan-2133MHz 4x8GB kit. Earlier I had very cheap Crucial Ballistic Sport RAM, those sticks were horrible for overclocking, even with very loose timings and low frequencies. Cheap but also crap for overclocking.

I did some more testing while I was at work today. I flashed the 2104 BIOS for my Sabertooth a couple of weeks ago for other reasons, and hadn't really tested stuff with it. It has that irritating bug when resuming from sleep (resets CPU multi to stock and turns APM and TURBO on), but what the heck. And now I see there is a newer BIOS available, 2301, just last week. Maybe that one has fixed the bug? Anyway, with 1.55V I am stable at 4.8 GHz, weee
smile.gif
CPU Vcore hits 1.572V under load (Ultra High LLC), a little scary but my temps are good. I disabled and killed all Asus-processes and services before testing, Turbo-EVO etc are convenient, but not very stable in my experience. The utilities crashes now and then, and the fan control-stuff glitches out in dangerous ways. I had ThermalRadar suddenly set my fans and pump to absolute minimum when the socket temp hit 50C. Not at all like what was set in the app. So I deleted it and use BIOS settings instead, works every time.

Some screens, Open Hardware Monitor and IBT AVX (green plot is Core Temp):


CPU-z:


Testing with 29GB RAM takes almost 5 hours. This is at 1.25V CPU/NB. I haven't tested more yet, maybe I will. The numbers for IBT AVX could be little higher and more even, but that's fine tuning now that the damn thing is finally stable smile.gif

Anyway, this is the best yet I have managed with 32GB of 2133MHz RAM. I like it smile.gif

Edit: Ambient temp during testing was about 18-19C, Sunny early spring day with a window open.


glad it helped ! also to note, although it may of been fixed by now hwmonitor has had some issues with fx cpus, i recommend hwinfo

nothing to worry about at those volts fyi i run mine higher


i will never trust asus or any other software program for my fans, that is why i have a aquaero with its own CPU and if it stops getting infos from HWINFO it defaults to a temp i preset ( assumed temp ) which i always set high

also i would not get my hopes up about the sleep issue.

not only is it a problem across several amd mobos but also intels personally i think it is a windows issue, for me it is a non issue as i never let it go into sleep as i have SDDs and sleep does not alow them to use trim

I have changed my sleep button to hibernate in windows and have no issues. It might take a few seconds or so longer to shut down, but when it wakes its exactly where I left off. smile.gif Oh, and hibernate saves the total amount of ram you have on the C: drive, so if you have like 32GB of ram on a 60GB SSD, you need to take that into careful consideration.

I left my overclock stress testing for the night and when I woke up and turned on my monitors, they were saying no video input. I've never seen that before while overclocking, does it mean my OC was unstable (no surprise with 4.6GHz @ 1.387v) or did Windows/graphics drivers go nuts on me, which would be very annoying. I don't really want to sit at my screen for the whole 12 hours and it's my only computer, so I prefer to do it at night.

Most likely the OC failed and locked up. But windows could have messed you up. Did you have sleep mode and screen saver enabled ? If so, disable if youre going for long overnight runs.

No and no. Guess it was just unstable.

Hey Guys,

i got issue with FX 8350. Running on Asus M5A88-V EVO MB with Xigmatek SD-1283 cooler. I added also fan from stock cooler to blow on VRM and additional 12cm to Xigmatec heatsink.
I hoped i can do little OC with these components. I also found some "stable" OC configuration...BUT... my processor still throttling and overheating even on stock settings with CaQ and other throttle settings it started on 62C and with these settings off on around 78C.

Is this behavior normal?
I dont know what could be wrong. I am getting frustrated frown.gif

Adding my OCCT resuls: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

At 78C, it should be throttling. Try reseating the heatsink.

Got it stable now w/o throttling on 4,4Ghz and 64C. Advice to set LLC to auto work on this model too thumb.gif
Ok, ill try it, Maybe i placed too much thermal paste. I hope that this heatsink can cool better than that...
post #2339 of 4095
CPU Power Thermal Control - 130 Tested to 4.7Ghz (not sure what this effects)



Ai suit say 130 celsius so it look like it temp throttling but at 130c i think the board will uh devil.gif
