FX 8350 on crosshair IV extreme BSOD at stock

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi I have been runing an amd 980 on my rig for quite a while and decided to try running an FX 8350. My temps are normal they are about 32-35 degrees idle and 50 on load. The blue screening is completetly random, I have it running on pretty high load for 2 days straight, and I have ran prime 95 for about 8 hours (My room was getting warm and I didn't want to run it longer) turbo is disable so is cool and quiet.

I just don't understand, If anyone has some ideas some input would be nice thanks

The FX CPU's aren't officially supported in a Crosshair IV. ASUS does have a BIOS that will allow the FX to boot on that board, but my understanding is that you do it at your own risk. The board was never designed to run Bulldozers or Piledrivers. Sometimes it works fine, sometimes not.

Make sure you have the latest BIOS revision with FX support, and that your PSU is strong enough to power an 8350. But if you really want to run an 8350, you should really get an AM3+ board that was intended to run it.

Yeah, I think its a compatibility issue with the motherboard. There were a lot of reported problems around the forums about Crosshair IV issues with Bulldozer so I wouldnt expect Piledriver to work any better.

Well you guys are gonna lolz and Im very happy biggrin.gif The blue-screening was caused by my usb extender I had plugged in, it had a short circuit and was drawing a lot of power. I unplugged it and have been running bsod free for 2 weeks. right now I have it clocked at 4.4ghz with a hyper 212+. I really love the 8350! Im gonna buy a kraken x60 and a radeon 7990. I want at least 5ghz. so thanks for your time guys!
