EDIT:

So, i was preparing my System, (LLC-Settings, Capabillitys 130%, No C&C, SVM & C6...).

I was able to reach 3,5 GHz with a multi from 17.5 at Stock-V for CPU and CPU/NB (1.320 & 1,237).

At the moment i am at 4,2 GHz with a 21 multi and 1.3625v for the CPU and 1.25v for CPU/NB. I got a raise of 10 kelvin of temperature at Cinebench. Everything fine.

But...when i am Prime-Testing the System, after a while my CPU drops some cores from 4.2 GHz to 1.4 GHz and raises them again. 2-3 cores start to drop at high temps ( x > 65 Celcius). Is this normal? I also think that i reached my thermal-border. Any suggestions what i could do? Should i now start to edit the BUS-Speed?

PS: I am at the same level i went with fsb oc. Same speed but higher termals :O. i think my cpu don't like me xD.

I think your CPU doesn't like your cooler. You are getting hot and the CPU is throttling that drop to 1.4 is normal. You need more air flow and cooling power

this are my settings since you have an Asus board see what settings are available.

Just wondering why you have the NB voltage set to 1.1 manually?


I think you both need something along these lines to get some air to the socket area.
VRM Cooling

LL

Fan on the side door

LL

Right on the rear of the cpu socket.



All of these will help drop your temps

Thanks so far for the information...ok...i will go back to a mutli of 19 - 3900GHz and 1.343 volt for the cpu. at this settings my thermals were perfect.

How far could i push the speed with fsb oc? my aim are about 4,5 GHz.

how did you atach the fans on the heatsinks? ;O.

PS: airflow should be fine





post #3513 of 4095
For the heatsinks you can use cable ties and sometimes the grooves will let you sink a screw between the. The back side is almost more important for airflow. I see the tower air cooler and they just don't cut it with the FX once you start pouring the coals to it.

Okay, thanks for the answer.

I managed to reach the 4.5 GHz. But the temps are to high....i know, real-life programms usually dont reach prime-temps, but 65 Celcius @ load is too much.

I will return to my fsb- 4.1 GHz @ Stock voltage. I need a better cooler xD
post #3515 of 4095
I manually set the NB voltage to stock voltage instead of leaving it auto.

Hey everyone. I'm looking for guidance. I have an 8320 and an MSI 970 gaming motherboard. I've read its not safe to go above 1.45v so I'm at 1.44v trying to hit 4300mhz but P95 crashed on me in an hour. I have no clue what to set my CPU NB, NB, SB, and HT frequencies at. I've waded through pages of discussion but most of it is about temperatures and I'm wondering if manually setting these values could get me a better overclock. I have a decent cooler so if the board can handle above1.45v that would likely work but the board is only 6+2 phase. A lot of people are also saying the VRMs in my board are poor as well. Any tips on what would be safe settings for those values? Some say setting the HT frequencys to the same value can improve performance but others are saying that doesn't matter and stock speed is fine.

Hello darko.

Why do you set your voltage that high? My 8120 was able to reach 4.3 by a slightly hit in the voltage.

Try to adjust your llc and capabillities. Also, read the First page in this thread. It helped me a lot.
post #3518 of 4095
Leave your vcore where it is and also leave those other settings on auto. Try bumping your ram to 1.6v and see what happens. That board does not have LLC.

Lowering the second fan as far as you can on that Phanteks will help cool the vrm heatsink. A fan on the cpu socket will help you lots to. Those drive bays are killing your airflow from the front fans. I would try and route more of those cable behind the motherboard.

Any lower and I get BSODs or worker crashes in prime. There's no LLC control.

Alright I'll try this.

Some good tips here.

Seems like my CPU temp peaks at around 46C but I hit a floor here at 1.448V vcore and 4300MHz on the clock speed. It survives 10 minutes of P95 so will probably be stable enough for my purposes. A bit of a shame I can't figure out how to get past that. I've tried a lot of different settings on the mobo and seem to have hit a wall. Still not bad for a $100 motherboard and $140 CPU. Thanks for the advice everyone.
