All AMD cpus have the pins on the cpu :/

Most do but not all. Go look up Slot A Athlons and you'll see they look like a old school game cartridge. I had one of these things and it went 1Ghz! biggrin.gif

Make sure to turn up the amperage/overcurrent limit (if you have one on that board). After 4.8 GHz mine would start to choke unless it was on 130%. Also, if you take apart the top part of the tin it came in, what kind of pattern is on the inside of the metal? tongue.gif

Slot 1 were the Intel variant of the cartridge, but I'm not sure why we're discussing such old stuff in this thread. LGA was only somewhat recently adopted in the mainstream with socket 775. AMD sockets like G34 use an LGA setup but the consumer AMD CPUs/platforms do not.

Best advice I can give is that if you filling all four ram slots. you want to raise the nb voltage a bit on the board when overclocking. at least i have to on my asus cvf

The motherboard is an 8+2 phase design, which is what you want for OC'ing an octo-core FX. How far you will get depends on your cooling more than anything. An 8350 draws a lot of additional power as you scale up beyond 4 GHz. The stock cooler can get you 4.3, maybe 4.4 if you're lucky. Something like a Hyper 212 Evo can get to about 4.5 before the TDP gets too high for the cooler to handle it. The dual-tower air coolers and the closed loops in the H100 class can reach 4.8-5.0. By that time, you're going to have to be running at least 1.45v and probably closer to 1.5, and sucking down about 200W from the PSU.

You can overclock just by changing the multiplier, but I've had better results from using a combination of the multiplier and the bus clock. I'm currently running at 4851 MHz, using a bus clock of 231 and a mult of 21. It also works at 225*21.5 for 4837. The best way to test for stability is to run IBT in a loop for a few hours.
