Hello,

I have a M5A99X with a FX-8350 and a Corsair H55 with 4 x 4 GB Ripjaws Z Series DDR3 2133Mhz.
I'm trying to follow your guide to overclock it up to at least 4,4 ghz, but 2 cores always fail on prime95 blend test, in less then 3 minutes, even with stock configurations. The temps never reach 68C on socket, but never passes.

What can it be? What should I do?
I'm really lost.

More info, pictures of CPU-Z for CPU and memory. But in general its allways the same more Voltage to CPU or CPU-NB.

If it's failing at stock speeds, look at your RAM speed. If you're running it at 2133 MHz, it's overclocked and if the memory controller in the CPU isn't getting enough voltage, it won't be stable.

Nice! It looks like it should stress test well too.

As far as I know, that's more or less what I'm doing.

If there's any more suitable intro-to-bios information you know of online, please sent it my way.

The easiest and most effective thing you can do is just overclock with the multiplier. Forget anything else. I would set your bios to optimized defaults. Reboot and take note of your stock vcore. Then go into your bios and raise that vcore by .1v. Set the multiplier to achieve say 4.5 GHz. Turn off all the power saving crap. Turn off turbo. Save your settings. Reboot and stress test. Watch your vcore and socket temps. Then you can tweak things by lowering your vcore a tad. Or you may be able to attain a higher frequency with that vcore. Or you may need a higher vcore for 4.5. Not likely but this is where you experiment. 4.5 is a fairly moderate overclock. Seeing that you have an 8350 and a top notch motherboard.

IBT pass 10 passes: standard, high, very high, but not extreme. good enough for me. it can handle handbrake. full loaded at 66C CPU.
