Fx 8320 Overclocking 1333mhz - 1866mhz

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Right im rocking 12 gig of ddr3 1333mhz 2 x 4 gig in dual channel then a poor baby 4 on her own .

orderd 2 x 4 gb ddr3 1866mhz patriot viper 3, 9 - 9 - 9 - 24 ( cheapest ram with best speed and lowest CAS at 9 )
so I wil be running them in dual channel and dsgardarding my other 12 .

ive also orderd a cooler master hyper 412 slim dual fan to replace my stupidly anoiying loud stock heat piped fan.

my motherboard is a asus m5a97 ( not revision 2 although I cant tell the difference if someone would enliten me smile.gif )

Now I have several question so bear with me , ( im a competent and experience builder and overclocker so don't hold back with advise )

1st . will the 1866mhz default at that speed and at those stated timings without any faffing in bios for voltages and overclocking .
2nd. will it help my overclocking any more then 1600 MHz ( first time delving into above those speeds )
3rd what is the concences on the average overclocking stable speed for a 8320 with and without voltage increases.
4th. how much better an improvement will I see in cooling with this cooler over the stock version ? ( I did have a artic cooler 7 freezer , and to be honest it was a bag of balls . waste of 25 notes. got hot very quickly and climed till my core temps were at a scary 70 degrees .) ( under stock cooler on turbo , upto 5000rpm im hitting core temps of around 50's and socket temps of no more then 60 . im a small office with a lot of equipment for work so does get fairly warm althoht when its not raiing I have window wide open and idle temps drop to about 8 c on the core and 27-28 on the socket

and Ive also orderd a haf xb if that make any better help

1st: It will likely boot up on 1600mhz 9-9-9-24 1.5v and you will have to enable the XMP profile in bios, or manually set the speeds and timings.

2nd: Higher memory speeds will not make the CPU Oc better, it will most likely make it ''harder'' because you are stressing the memory controller more and might need to up certain voltages

3rd: the 8320 is rated for max 1866mhz, 2133mhz is achievable by everybody, and some can even OC the ram to 2400mhz, but then you probably have to raise certain voltages

4th If you are running the stock cooler now, then you will see an improvement from 10 to 15c (a wild geuss)
i visited some review sites and none compare to stock cooler, but i will be much better, and you will be able to achive a higher OC's on lower temps

Brilliant . So if its rated for 1866 at those timings ( the ram ) isit then the mobo tht deafults those speed and timings or the ram tht deafults it self or do different boards on amd socket react differentlyn? Sorry about the drilling . I live and breath nerdiness . ... Whats every one elses experiance with the pildriver 8 core stock fans? I dont think ill push it beyond 1866 but mightnhave a play with latencys . Does ram higher clocked ram not scale as well with the cpu like the apu.s .. I know they benefit because of the ddr3 being used for gfx ram but the cpu side shows extra performance

The ram is rated for 1866mhz, but it has 1600mhz as standard profile. This is to make sure it is compatible on 100% of motherboards/cpu and it is up to you to set it to the XMP profile, or manual set it to 1866mhz and set the timings / voltage.

It is true that the APU's of AMD gain more performance in videogames when using the IGPU + Higher speed memory.

On normall AMD CPU you will not notice a big performance gain, in games it will be allmost nothing. But there are software that can utilize the extra bandwidth from the memory.
