heres the problem
I managed to O.C to 5.3GHZ THIS TOOOK ME A WEEEK LONG of Reboots AND FAILS,
AMAZINGLY COOL AT 43-50C ( i passed the AMD Overdrive Benchmark and my total Score was 16k ) i will be posting photos once i get the chance to
Cpu problem : Crashes on stability test after 20 seconds under load @ 5.3GHZ (Stable @ 5.117 and under)
seems there is no actual voltage Settings online for the FX model's to run the correct stability other then the baby brother 8500 series, i looked for about a week online and i just come to a youtube video of some guy who doesn't even speak english running the same setup as i am
as of everything else is amazing.
What did you stress test with, and for how long?
IBT AVX version works great to find the easy instabilities in the beginning stages of testing. http://www.overclock.net/attachments/13202
Other versions are not the same for FX. Try 10 to 20 runs set to "Very High" but keep a very close eye on your temps!
You will see a big increase in temps compared to running a benchmark. Be careful.
If /when you pass say 20 runs set to "Maximum" you'll be ready for a 12-24 hr run of Prime95 (version 27.9 is best for FX).
Each chip/system is different this is why no one can give you said voltages. It's up to you to find the lowest possible voltages by testing.
I start with both CPU VID and CPU/NB VID as a starting point and go from there making increases ONLY when necessary and then in very small amounts followed by more testing.
You haven't mentioned your VRM temps.
You should consider adding active cooling for the VRMs and the backside of the mobo (CPU socket and VRM areas).
If you post some SS of all your bios settings perhaps we can see something there to help.
Run a little IBT AVX and post a snip showing HWInfo64 along with test results like this
