Overclocking FX-8320 with 970 Pro3 R2.0?

post #1 of 4

Terrible performance for the paid price and very disappointed.

Tried using X-Boost and there was no difference at all.

Can I overclock it with this chipset? I think 4.5 or more should give me the desired performance with 212 Hyper Evo cooling.

Your cpu is most likely throttling seeing as your board has no heatsinks on the vrm's. I would run prime 95 and use cpu-z and see if the speed and voltage decreases. Use core temp and see what temperature the cpu reaches.
