Anyway, I've gotten my FX-8320 OC'ed to 4.3Ghz and that's my limit, because if I try to go to 4.5Ghz, my temps get too hot (exactly to the max temps) due to me having to add more voltage. frown.gif But still! 4.3Ghz is an achievement to me thumb.gif

Hard to complain about an extra 800Mhz thumb.gif Nice work.

I wonder if that is the limit for this chipset. I haven't been able to get past 300 with any kind of stability. None of the voltages I've adjusted help it get any higher. Only CPU VDDA seems to keep it stable, but wont extend the range.

i may be wrong, but i thought i saw somewhere that 300 is the limit, at least on the asus boards it is.

Not that I've seen. I can dial in 600 if it would POST.
There was one CHV-Z that got into 320's.

Personally I like 250ish anyways. biggrin.gif

Definitely not complaining smile.gif I can tell from benchmarks that my CPU is actually quite faster - this should be good when I'm rendering videos. And thank you thumb.gif! If it wasn't for this guide, I would probably be lost. tongue.gif

I've just made the switch to Piledriver - 8350 and i'm using the 990FX Sabertooth motherboard everything runs fine (updated to latest bios) BUT when i open thermal radar the header of the menu says P67 Sabertooth instead of 990FX, also the displayed PCB is the P67 one.

Any ideas on how to fix this guys?

Sorry, I am not familiar with the Sabertooth software. But if you are getting the Printed Circuit Board display and title of the P67 Mobo, maybe try downloading the most recent version of that software from the Asus website and re-install. Maybe the wrong version was loaded to the Driver CD?
post #48 of 4095
I've tried that with no result (also updated the bios with no effect), will try to install the thermalradar of the non R2.0 version also, maybe that will work.

LE: Cleaned everything up again an re-installed and this time everything worked ok!

I would like to thank you for your comprehensive overclocking guide. Here is my list:
Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0
FX 8350
8GB 1866 Corsair Vengeance 9-10-9-27
128GB Corsair SSD
Thermaltake Water Pro 2.0
Antec 850w PSU

I followed your guide settings to the letter. I started my overclock at 4500, ran Prime 95 small FTT for ten minutes, all good. I'm adjusting the ratio higher and adding voltage when I reached 4800 with almost the voltage maxed out at 1.54. Run small FTT and it passes. Now it's time to run the full custom prime test and within a couple of minutes the core fails either to error or hardware (can't remember which cores failed). Clocked it down 4700 the same failure. When it was at 4500 at 1.47 v it passes running Prime 95 for two hours for stable OC. I tried going to 4600 with 1.5 v but no luck there either. In all my testing my temps were good and I noticed in CPU Z and running Prime 95 my clock ratio would dip back and forth from lets say x22.5 to x7 once in awhile even when stable. Can you advise me what to do in settings to get more OC or do I have to be happy with what I got? Thanks.

It sounds like your VRMs might be getting too warm. I'd recommend to install the stock CPU Cooler fan over top of the VRM heatsink with it blowing down over the heatsink. You should be able to use some double sided tape to stick the fan to the side of that Water Pro block. Position it so it will sit in the center of the heatsink.
