Too bad you are at the limit of your cooling, cause I'm very curious how much further your CPU would go. Being that most these M5A99FX boards seem to top out at 4.7-4.8Ghz Max, it wouldn't be a good idea to drop $$$ on WCing either though tongue.gif
I agree, spending anymore money on cooling now wouldn't serve my pockets very well. Especially since this rig has become my test bench of sorts with modding.

I'm not going to attempt to push my clock further, even though I'm confident that my board can handle the increased NB temps. I am happy with my new stable clock, and don't see any way to lower my temps with more voltage tweaks.

You must be referring to the CPU socket as NB temps. That will lower if you could get the Package temp lower as it's within the 10-15C of the Package temp under load. So if you got the package to 50, then the Socket could drop to ~64C.

Probably the only thing you could do is play with the fans in your case to try and lower temps. If I remember correct you already re-seated the water block to make sure it was good. So really that just leaves airflow as the issue. H100 should be getting you closer to 4.8Ghz. But meh biggrin.gif
Stock Corsair Fans as Intake on the Rad - Setup as pull
All other fans setup as exhaust
Should be moving a ton of heat

True, I've seen alot of other systems with the H80's and H100's getting closer to 4.8Ghz.
And yes, I I've been calling the Socket Temp NB temp. For some reason I just have that stuck in my head.

I'll try to play with the fans to see if anything makes a noticeable difference in temps. With it getting so hot here though, I doubt I will be able to get much better than what I have currently. Arkansas's Spring/Summer is nothing to play with. haha.

Other than lowering the clock, I dont see any way to get my Package down to 50 under a full stress. I just dont see it happening. I was hitting higher than that with stock settings.

I also have not had my question answered. A number of people have suggested using only 2 RAM sticks to test with. Once I do test, am I supposed to continue to leave just 2 installed from then on?

You should test with however many sticks you are going to be using. No point getting it stable with two and finding out x4 is too much for IMC.

From what I've seen though, this architecture likes to have all four ram slots populated.

Makes sense. Thanks for all the info.

When I had LLC enabled with the voltage set to 1.35 v it failed Intel Burn Test on the 20th test. So yeah, I'm back to stock and I don't think I'll try overclocking right now, maybe later, it could be the NB voltage, I don't know. If I need to upgrade my CPU I'll probably get a Steamroller 6-core CPU instead because right now overclocking is getting annoying.


I am catching up with my reading here at the forum, so if you fixed this already then never mind but if you have not... in Windows 8 you have different power settings. Control Panel->System and Security->Power Options. If you choose High Performance the OS will not let your processor into power saving mode. You will see that your processor stays at the desired stable OC. If you choose balanced then it will power save by down clocking your processor. Hope this helps biggrin.gif

I'm testing now on stock voltage I'm at 4.6 so i`m at the very edge for stock voltage but in Prime95 runs fine at 50-60% but kresjer immediately at 100% or freezes but in AIDA64 can it run for at least half an hour at 100% any idea why?

its a Fx 8350 on a crosshair v formula-z

We've noticed with some software, clocks will show stable in one, but not the other, and vice-versa. Prime95 crashes my system even at stock settings, and IBT has been the only software to accurately report a stable clock for me. Others have reported the opposite.

It seems that anything that uses AVX requires more voltage to keep stability. That would be my guess as to what's happening.
