Great to hear that buddy. * Maybe turn off your caps lock ;-)

I'm still having problems with my CPU throttling when at a 100% load for more then 5 minutes.

But for gaming it doesnt throttle at al, so @ 4.4 Ghz and tons of FPS in-game biggrin.gif

I'm one happy camper-killer xD

You look into the "Thermal Protection" setting I mentioned earlier?

Yeah, disabled thermal throttling and about every power saving/green/protection option i could find in the BIOS and in Windows

I was thinking that it would be the VRM's, but after putting a 80MM CM fan on it running at 2500 RPM to cool it, no change..
The CPU still gets down-clocked between 60 en 62C

I PWM modded my Scythe Gentle Typhoons by soldering in a PWM line, they go from 1200 to 3000 RPM's as soon as the CPU hits the 52C mark so keeping it cool is no problem in during gaming. ( In gaming it doesn't use the CPU's cores to 100% all the time )

But testing full load, i will hit the throttling problem in about 5 minutes. It's a shame really, my cores don't get hotter than 50C, so
if it wasn't for the throttling, i would still have 10C to play with.

Owh well, for gaming, and for now, (Don't have the 2nd GTX670 yet ) it's fine. My BF3 FPS is off the charts ( Avg about 80/90 FPS )
And with a simple overclock to 4.4, i can c about a 10/15 FPS rise in the 64 player maps, and it runs super smooth thumb.gif

Yeah, i liked me old FX6100 allot, but this FX8350 is just the bomb if you want to do some serious gaming.

The GTX 670 is better (according to benchmarks, never had a 7950 myself) then the 7950. I mostly play BF3, and in this game its as good as a 7970 thumb.gif
