Brick wall at 4.8 GHz FX 8350 Need help - Page 3

post #21 of 25
230 - 250 FSB seems to be a much sweeter spot for FX processors, both generations thus far. I've found it much easier to hit stable OC's on memory and CPU with lower voltages if I bump up the FSB. You just need to do a little math ahead of time to figure out how to get the memory speed you want from the dividers.

Check the secondary timings of your RAM. They may be lower on a certain multiplier which can be affective if you do a bus clock overclock.

Great work. That is a very good chip you got.
What do you mean by mobo fires?

Nice you got a good chip there. Mine takes over 1.57+ to be fully stable at 5ghz
