Alright, I got my ram running at a more correct speed. it was the IMC that was limiting me from running 4 sticks of ram at 1866. so i got them to run at 1600. now im having troubles overclocking my 8320. ive gone into the bios under AI tweaker and set the multiplier to 20 and it clocked at 4.4 GHz stayed stable for Intel burn test and didn't get above 55 c running the test so i figured it was a pass. i decided to call it a night and shut off the computer fully and in the morning it decided to blue screen before windows even fully booted. what am i doing wrong?

Edit *** need to stop using phone to quote lol

thaught you´d notice... running on stock at 1,217v with 3,7 just being tested on smalls... just got my 4th ram-stick back from RMA, back to 16GB feels somehow better, also is noticeable:D:D

I'd recommend to install Blue Screen View so you can see with the BSOD Code was, which will help narrow down your issue.

If you're getting 4.4Ghz with a CPU Multi of 20 then I'd guess you're running the FSB at 220.

So if your CPU/NB or HTT is Overclocked now, it may just be a matter of increasing those voltages or reducing the Ratio to bring them closer to stock.

Hi,

I am new to this forum and new owner of AMD 8350, have couple of questions & hoping to get some help smile.gif

Mother board - Asus M5A99FX PRO R2
ram - 1333mhz

1.. Can we overclock at 4.5ghz with the heat sink that came with processor, if not then what kind of cooler can i buy for 80$, i do not play games much, mainly used for 3D modeling, 3D rendering (maya, after effects)

2. right now i do not have a good graphics card, i own a nvidia GT 440, so i was hoping most of the work should be done by the processor.

Do not overclock with stock CPU cooler. As for the new cooler I would go with the Top rated online that fits in your case and is in your price range. Top brands are Coolermaster, and Zalman

1.
For air coolers I'd go with: But the Hyper 212+ will get you to 4.5 ghz.

2. Are you playing games?

Im havn a few issues getting my 8350 to 5ghz. Im using a H100i for cooling but i cant seem to get it stable at even 4.6ghz. Im using a crosshair V formula and ive heard a few people say the 8350's dont clock well on these boards due to old architecture, is this true??

Looks like you got some good recomendations from others here. $80 is a lot to spend on a good air cooler if you only want 4.5Ghz, so pretty well anything in the $30 range will be good enough.

From your previous post you said that you have the Crosshair IV 890FX Motherboard. If that's the case then my previous answer is still the same.
Quote:
The CPU frequency will fluctuate with the Power Saving features enabled. You can disable them in the BIOS for stress testing your CPU, but it's a good idea to re-enable them when you're done.

If it is the Crosshair IV Formula that you are using, you would get much better results switching from an AM3 Motherboard to AM3+. I used to own the CHIV as well, and my Bulldozer testing proved to have many glitches and issues Overclocking on the AM3 platform.

The Divider for 1866Mhz memory may not work right on that motherboard, as Phenom II's used 1600Mhz. You might have to use the FSB. If you set it to 233 with the 8x Divider that will give you 1864Mhz. You will have to reduce the CPU/NB Divider and HTT Divider to keep them at the stock settings of 2200Mhz CPU/NB and 2600Mhz HTT.

But if it is the Crosshair V Forumla that you have then it should Overclock fine. Although there were issues when Bulldozer came out, where the BIOS chip wasn't large enough for the FX BIOS and would cause voltage issues. This would require calling Asus and getting a replacement BIOS chip.

Thanks for the reply.

Games not much, even if i play it would be far cry, max payne etc.. shooting & car racing games mainly..

i checked cooler master website and found there hyper 412 is in my the price range, is this any good ? i will check Phanteks & Noctua from the market today.

what about - Corsair Hydro H60, bit expensive

cabinet i am looking at is - (50-80 $)
Cabinet USP 100
Cooler Master Elite 370, 371 or any other cabinets in that price range. in future i was hoping to get any GTX 660 or 670 (if possible) are they good ? or any other choice.

can i run amd fx 8350 & Asus M5A99FX PRO R2 for video editing & modeling & rendering without any graphics card ? bcos i thought we could overclock and achieve good rendering speed.

thanks for your valuable inputs guys..

That CM Hyper 412 looks like a decent air cooler. I've used a couple of the closed loop systems, and I prefer the simplicity of a good air cooler. Unless you are going to a high end $100 closed loop it's not really worth it IMO.

You would need to have your video card connected to the M5A99FX because it doesn't have any display port connections. (no iGPU etc).
