Yeah, and it was quite a hassle, because if you look at all the specs of my old PSU, you would say it can handle allot of hardware.
But reading about them crashing, power surging, melting.. ..That and the fact it doesn't have 4 PCI-E 6-pin connectors
made me decide to get a decent one. ( Why spend all that money on top notch hardware, and run it on a crappy PSU right? )

If you have adequate cooling, 4.8Ghz seems to be the norm for these chips. Otherwise, 4.5 should be easily attainable on almost any cooling solution.

My CM EVO TX3 isnt doing the job, keeping my CPU at 60C (CPU Temp, not Core Temp) at load on stock settings.

So.... I bought a CM 214 Slim :-) according to most benchmarks, this should do a way better job.


I was hoping for the 4.8 Ghz, seeing that after that it's gonna eat allot of Volts, and higher temps.
The response on the ''owners club'' was that i would not get higher then 4.5 Ghz :/

Well geuss upcoming Tuesday i will find out.


Btw, is ''lapping'' a good idea for me? Will i gain some lower temps?

It's been my experience that FX chips have a very good, and very flat IHC, so I wouldn't bother with lapping if I were you. The temps you need to be concerned about are the CORE temps, and not the cpu temp. You want to keep this at or below 61 degrees.

Ok, good to hear, loving every thing about this chip, except the temps, thought the contact surface might be a problem.

Anyway i'm getting allot of mixed info about what my temps should be. And i was aiming to keep the CPU temp below 62C, but it's actually the Core temp i need to keep below 62C? I'm using AIDA64 for temp readings when in OS.

This also gives some readings i'm not entirely confident about. CPU idle is somewhere around 34 -40C while Core temps are around 17 -19C

Wel, this afternoon i'm gonna fit the new 412 Slim, and when that's done, Its overclock time! biggrin.gif

I read somewhere i could push for 4.4 with the multi and leave the voltage on auto. I'm just wondering if the auto wont ''auto'' up it to accommodate it's needs?

Btw, i'm sorry about all the questions tongue.gif Last time i did some overclocking on an AMD chip was about 10 years ago. (AMD Duron 1300)

Try HWMONITOR. You can download it at cpuid.com. And yes, for load temperatures, the CORE temp is what you need to keep an eye on, and 62 is also fine. I personally prefer 61 a limit. 4.4 is possible on stock voltage as long as your "Load Line Calibration" is working. You will know its working if the voltage goes up or at the very least, remains the same under full load. My 8350 ran fine at stock voltage settings and 4.4Ghz. LLC took the voltage to 1.360 under full load.

Hey,

Wel, been a busy couple of days of trying things out, and testing.

Hwmonitor is a great program btw! Thnx!

And.. I ran into a little snag.

And can get my overclocks stable, and core temps around the 50's but as soon as my CPU temp hits 60C
my multiplier drops to x7 and the clocks to 1400 Mhz or something.

I tried absolutely everything. all my Bios settings are ok, turned off C6 , thermal throttling etcetc.
in Windows put my power management plan to high performance and corrected al the CPU performance settings..

But it keeps clocking down as soon as the CPU temp hits 60C, like it has an inbuilt fail-safe that's triggered at that temp.

Anyway, i got the CM 412S installed (they delivered the wrong one) and instead of the one CM stock fan, i'm gonna mount
2 Scythe Gentle Typhoons 3000 rpm in a push-pull configuration.

Hoping this will keep my CPU temps below 60C on 4,5 Ghz mad.gif

Sounds like your cpu is thermally throttling. You should be able to turn off that feature somewhere in the CPU settings.
