FX-6300 + GA 78lmt-usb3 rev. 5.0 overclocking so far - Page 71

post #701 of 880
Now one may think how dies increased ram speed affect CPU temp. It directly does not. When doing reviews for ram I noticed that with the FX CPUs the CPU NB frequency must always be equal or higher than the ram speed or else the computer won't boot. So its the increased CPU NB frequency which causes the CPU temo to increase. I hope I made some sense here. smile.gif

My system wasn't 100% stable in the end with the ram at 2240 and cpuNB at 2400.
I had to go down to 2184 for the ram and 2340 for the cpuNB. CPU is at 2.68., oh and HT at 2800.

LLC extreme worked the best for me. There is a post somewhere in this thread explaining what each setting does with the findings between me and jason.

Great info! Noted smile.gif

Always here to help smile.gif Another thing I've noticed is that the more amount of ram, the more stress on the CPU NB and lower overclocked ram frequencies. For example, with 8GB ram(2sticks) 2400Mhz was stable but as I increased the amount to 16gb(2 8gb sticks),it was no longer stable at 2400Mhz.

Thanks guys, just what I needed smile.gif

NB must be faster than RAM.. riiight I knew that! cowboy.gif

After I posted I read the post about LLC settings back a few pages.




So I guess 'extreme' is the way to go.

what kind of numbers could you get from an 8320 with this board?

4.2 and 4.4. Keep in mind, I do not run my hardware on the brink of death. These CPU's run hot as it is and I respect my VRM's. With that said, there was no way you'd want to touch the heatsink on one of these boards running an 8 core chip anyway. But at least I didn't have to Frankenstein mod my case to provide heavy active cooling to various parts of the motherboard.

im going to start again with my overclocks, for some reason my original refused to work with ram in the two black slots , i have a fan at the back of the socket and near the VRM blowing out of where the I/O shield would be, not sure weather to try for my old 4.2 or if i should try for a little more

Lol your build has actually inspired me to make a Mad Max build. One of these days!
