Overclocking the AMD FX 8150 Issue

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I do not understand my chip. No matter how hard I try I cannot get my computer to boot on a 4.7 ghz overclock. I can easily get it to boot on 4.6 with a 1.475 voltage but no matter the voltage I cannot get 4.7 to boot. I have tried 4.7 with 1.5 volts 1.525 volts and 1.550 volts and none will get past bios. What happens exactly when I try and boot it with a 4.7 overclock is it turns on and the bios flashes by quick than im greeted with a screen saying failed boot possibly due to wrong hardware configuration. Now on another note once I have gotten it to boot on 4.7 when I upped the Bus Speed but when i tried to restart the comp the same failed to boot message appears. Note that I have a Gigabyte mobo and a water cooling system that keeps my pc at 45C on my 4.6 ghz overclock. Hope someone can help because I have tried everything even messing with the voltage regulation and the power saving features.

Where is LLC at?

You may have hit your chips limit, but try 4.8 with 1.55 as now and then, a chip just doesn't like a certain frequency

You may have just hit the limit of that chip. Mine wont budge passed 4.5. I boot into Windows fine at 4.6 but I cant pass OCCT. Heck, I was able to run Intel Burn Test for a full 20 passes at 4.8 but cant get passed OCCT at anything more than 4.5.

Ive tried every possible combination to no avail. Each chip has its own particular limit and 4.6 might just be yours. Be glad its not 4.5. biggrin.gif

As for LLC, I set mine to Ultra High. That keeps the voltage under load the same as what I set in the BIOS. Extreme overvolts a little and any of the others drop the voltage. Try it on Ultra High and see whats what.

Also, sometimes a combination of FSB and multiplier overclocking will give you a little more stability.
