AMD FX 8320 overclock problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have the 8320 on a Asrock 970 extreme 3 and i am having trouble with a stable overclock. i had a 6300 but the volts from this 8320 is different and i think high. whats the max voltage i should put through it and i want a 4.7. im cooling it with a H80 and it now is at 4.5mhz and 1.5volts. I want to know whats safe and if i drop my voltage any lower it blue srceens and i have C and Q off and thermal throttle off and amd power settingds diablesd and no turbo boost.

The power phase is only a 4+1, so with my experience with those AsRock 970 Extreme 3. You are lucky to get it to 4.5ghz. I have 3 AsRock 970 Extreme 3 mobo. I wouldn't push that mobo any further.

Careful, according to this the Extreme3 throttles overclocked 8-cores.
