New W/C Loop, Sabertooth OC Settings >4.7, Help me please.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well I finally managed to upgrade to a reasonable water cooling loop, I went for a Maelstrom Bay Res with MCP35X Pump
the Koolance 380A cpu block with Alphacool ST30x240 and UT60x120 Rad's.

I'm keeping the FX8350 around 59c @ 4.69 OC under Prime95 load with an ambient of 28c at the moment
which is far better than I was before, hitting 65c+ @ 4.2 OC.

Is there anyone with a sabertooth running >4.7 that could share their settings,
I'm convinced I could do better, currently my settings are;

CPU Ratio: x21
CPU Bus Freq: 223
CPU Volts: 1.487
CPU/NB Volts 1.193
DRAM Volts: 1.65

NB Freq: ~2013 Mhz
HT Link: ~2418 Mhz
DRAM: 745.9 Mhz (9-9-9-24)

CPU LLC Ultra High
CPU/NB LLC Extremne
CPU Power Phase: Optimized

Any help much appreciated, my knowledge is quite limited but willing to learn smile.gif


Thanks
Monty

You have underclocked the CPU/NB?

Try backing off the CPU/NB voltage & LLC settings, that will give a bit more OC headroom for the CPU cores.
Also try manually setting the CPU LLC to the slowest phase cycle.

Thanks for the reply and advice, went to start and try out some changes and my SSD decided to pack up
anyway, tried some of the suggestions and still find it hard to get stable (OCCT & Prime95) above the 4.6
did correct the NB Fq, somehow in a mad moment I had forced its setting too low!

Made a few changes to my W/C loop as I was having major problems shifting air, so a bit of re-plumbing
has improved things on the heat front.

Don't have enough knowledge and I fiond a lot of the articles confusing contradictory at times.

Sigh! biggrin.gif

Not sure where to go from here, perhaps should be happy and leave it where it is, stability is key
this is not for gaming so cannot afford an unstable system.
