Why does the M5A99FX EVO R2.0 support the FX9-serie and the M5A99X EVO R2.0 does'nt? shoudnt the mobos almost be the same? Its 16/8 vs 16/16 on the Pci-e bus? thats seperate them?

Both mobos does take 140W cpu's and has 6+2 power phases. Same heat tolerance etc..

//Sry for my grammar.

no way you could overclock that high on a board like that though....

I dont know if you mean me? But right now I have my cpu (FX8350) running at 4400mhz and turbo on 4700mhz stable smile.gif

Cpu temp 54c max peak and the sockel 70c max peak (Prime95 burn in)

In Battlefield 4 sockel temp is max 60c and cpu around 49-50c.

is it safe to run FSB at 203? Main concern is to not burn out my GPU, I set Multi to 24, FSB to 203, and PCI to 100Mhz. Now running at 4.864

Its actually running cooler now, slightly.

Manually setting the PCI to 100MHz was the correct move. Your GPU shouldn't see any issues due to raising the Ref Clock.

Many see slightly lower temps by running a FSB X Multi OC vs a Multiplier only OC.
You'll see larger gains in performance with a higher Ref Clock as well.

Takes more time and some research but very much worth the effort IMHO.
