New FX 8350 and " OVERCLOCK DIARIES "

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Last week I decided to upgrade my fx 6100 to a fx 8350 and I am really happy. However I want to get the possible highest performance out of it. My diary begins with 1.392 volts to core. I succeded to get a 4.2 ghz with this vcore and "extreme" llc settings. I also gave 1.6 volts to my corsair vengance 1600mhz rams. So far no problems with prime 95 and maximum heat is 54 degrees with 2 hours of test. However I want to get the best as I said. I try other voltages like 1.440-1.475 1,500 etc. All these voltages I can get 4.4 to 4.6 with no crashes in pime 95. but unfortunately I get cpu throttle while testing in prime95 after especially 59 degrees of cpu heat. and my cpu mhz drops % 50 to nearly 2.8 ghzs while testing and after it cooled down gets bakc to 4.4 ghz and this continues like a cycle .This is a cpu throttle I guess. So how can I achive a better overclock than my 1.392 v 4.2 ghz formula ?

here is my new rig:

Fx 8350 @ 4.2 GHZ -- GIGABYTE 970A --Powercolor HD 7950 -- SANDISK EXTREME 120 GB SSD -- 500 GB SEAGATE HD -- 8 GB RAM -- COOLERMASTER HYPER 212 EVO CPU Cooler -- AEROCOOL VS-3 CASE -- 500 WATT XIGMATEK PSU -- VE 2 ARCTIC COOLING + 2 AKASA CASE FANS -- 27" ASUS VE276Q LED MONİTÖR
