It's best to let Prime95 (by design) run uninterrupted and all by itself. Do the DLing and install afterward.

Uh


I would says to everyone with those ASUS MOBO


To get an infrared thermometer and check those vrm on the back...


My m5a99fx pro reacher 117celsius with an infrared thermometer with less than 1.5v and a fx 6300 on prime 95


My Giga ud3p 970a Is ways better... Im pushing 1.55volt on a fx 8300 with just a fan at minimum voltage on the vrm and im not reaching over 90c on small ftt. (( everything is heatsinked ))


The asus got a ways better bios... The giga is kinda 10 years behind

New Here, but have been reading, and following all the posts regarding OCing the 8320. I know MY mobo isn't exactly the best for it, I've gone up to 4.5 ghz on mine, but I freeze up during p95 tests, and occt I just get rounding errors. I've never even been able to get through the test to see my max heat. I've read through all the post, and tried all the things everyone has advised. At this point, I'm just totally confused. All the info to my set up is in my sig, if that's a help, anything else I can take shots of.

Hi!

This is still a good guide so please do study it well. About your specs. Cooling? Stock cooling? Air? CLC? Custom water loop?

For testing and monitoring most use IBT AVX found here. http://www.overclock.net/attachments/13202

It is fast and easy to use.

For monitoring the most reliable program is HWINFO64. It is free.

Oh, right. I'm on all air, got a big Gammaxx400 sitting ontop of my cpu with pushpull fans attached to it, The error I always get is "rounding is 5 expected less than 4. I'm pretty sure it's something to do with my voltages, I seem to get some serious droops, I've got cpu set to like 1.4, but it only dances around that voltage for a minute, or so...then just as I start my p95 test, it drops to 1.392, or a bit less. I know mu mobo sucks for OC, but I figured since it's not the LE version I could get some juice outta it, I do plan on building a new rig, but I want to do all my trial and error work on this pc, so if I really mess anything up, it's not as bad as a brand new system. Hwinfo shots are enclosed. I've also got a fan blowing inside the case directly on the vrm to keep the temps somewhat undercontrol.After some rather intense searching on this forum, I've pretty much found my answer, as I'\m fully stable on every stress test at 4.3ghz and my temps never hit 60cspu or 60c on socket, I'll just stick to that until I build the new pc. this is the post I'm referencing:http://www.overclock.net/t/1579793/amd-fx-8350-vcore-without-llc-question-m5a97-r2-0-mobo Warning: Spoiler!
