tips to cool socket temp.. fan on VRMS and Northbridge... need extra cooling fan on back of socket.

max socket is up to mobo manufacture normally can get to 75-80c

Both,

IBT AVX will get you 99% there and still be pretty quick, Prime takes a wile for the errors to start popping up when you get close.

Hey guys I know this has been beat into the ground and I apologize if this has already been discussed, but I found this yesterday and was curious what you guys think. Does this mean we can go to 70C on the core 24/7 on FX8350s and not even worry about socket temps?

http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/faq/id-2122665/understanding-temperature-amd-cpus-apus.html

I am running into a thermal wall at 1.4 volts while running prime 95 small ffts on my FX8350 cooled by an h100i. I have checked and rechecked my thermal paste and it's crazy to me that I can't get up above 1.4 volts without some serious heat. The upside is I can hit 4.5Ghz at 1.368 volts lol however, I want MOAR power and can't get any higher due to heat. To stack on the above question has anyone else run into this?

I'm running an FX8350 on a Sabertooth 990fx R2.0.

Hello, I just saw your rig details in your signature. Just curious about you running 1.7 volts on your chip? Is it running well?

The usual applies, you need to cool the VRMs and the back of the socket ..must not post photos ..again!

You should be able to do 4.7 with a H100i on a Saberkitty,

Have a couple of photos anyway..

lol thanks for the pics. I forgot to mention I have fans on my VRMs setup similar to yours as well as a thin fan behind the socket . I think I just lost the lottery :/. Yours is much much prettier though lol. What about the 70C on the core? It seems they are saying that is totally safe. What do you think? If that's the case I have another 5 or 6 degrees to go. I don't want to go all the way to 70, but I'll take it to 68 or so.

You should be ok,

Use this (AMD Overdrive)

stock temps

to tell you how much headroom you have. This is stock

4.9 trial

It should look something like this when running right.

Awesome thanks so much! Yeah I've been playing around with it today. I'm going to get to work and see what I can do. I'll be happy if I can hit 4.7. Out of curiosity do you use Extreme LLC on CPU and CPU/NB? I switched to it and I think I like it better than Ultra High. I'll let you guys know what I get. Again thanks for the quick replies.
