AMD FX-8350 Overclocking ERROR - Page 2

post #11 of 14
It is almost required to have a 8+2 cooling for the 8 cores, and you do need a fan over the motherboard, otherwise you burn the board instead of the processor. There is a guide here on OCN already - several actually. There is a general one, then an owners club, then how-to based on your board manufacturer, I'll be back in a second - let me find some

EDIT: Considering you have an "illegal sumout" I'm willing to bet that it is a volt issue with your RAM and CPU/NB. You were overclocking the NB frequency, increasing the speed of the RAM. Try to do this: Multiplier: 22.5x Volts: 1.425V and see where that will take you. It's just a starting point, and depending on how lucky you are with the silicon lottery, you may be stable, take off .025V, or your computer will lock up.
If you overclock anything with RAM, you may need to set it's voltage to 1.6V

Here you go! Owners Club or OC Guide for ASUS boards

Word of advice: Do not let your temperatures during use get to 60°C as 62°C is the maximum temperature AMD recommends. During P95 stress testing, you can let your temperature go higher than that, as stress testing runs your CPU hotter than normal applications like gaming. Stop your P95 testing if your CPU goes to 67°C as it doesn't like going that high. I don't know why some people can do 80°C on their 8350 - but my system shuts down at 70°C. Good luck, and try to get a CPUID validation

The 70C limit is the socket, not cores?

My motherboards have 70C socket limits in their B.I.O.S.es.
