4.5 GHz on new 8320 questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey dudes! Dilemma ensues with new 8320...here's what's up !

With 4.5 ghz on my 999fxa-ud3 rev 3 FC bios - temps have skyrocketed to about 66 -68 degrees max under load with voltage of +.025 ( 1.44 in bios screen) . During prime95 blend it quickly gets up to 60 degrees within a few minutes and voltages vary from 1.464 to 1.5 with LLC on ultra high. I heard LlC can be hit or miss, what should I do to make this run better at 4.5 Ghz? Are ppl getting 4.5 with lower voltages and diff LlC settings?

It seems the voltages are increasing a lot, I looked up and it was at 70 degrees then quickly shut down prime 95 !!!! Hear it's okay and won't damage my chip

I stopped the prime95 test because the ambient temps now are 36 Celsius and I'll never go full load during this hot part of the day. I'll test again soon when I turn the AC on and cools my room down. It's 82F in my room now , 115 outside in Arizona. Sigh :/ lol

I'm just wondering how safe it is to keep this oc and what should I tweak? I had a taste of 4.5 ghz in BF3 an must say I LoVE iT! My Fps average is 60-120 compared to 30-70 on my phenom II. Planetside2 fps drastically increased as we'll .

I guess I'm saying if during gaming temps are around 50-57 or so is that okay? I never game for a long period of time and that's the most I do on my rig so seems dumb to turn down an OC that will never reach the thermal limit in realistic scenarios

seems your voltage is high. are your sure its not reading 1.34-1.4? What are you using as a cooler? you should use rig builder in top right corner and build your rig and add to your signature.

Check out some info here:

Start out slow make sure lower voltages/clocks are stable first. most people end up on ultra high llc but you should always try lower settings first, you can use OCCT to monitor voltages with a graph. This is a good way to see them to test LLC. Also HWinfo64 is a great tool aswell to monitor temps and has updated profiles for the UD3.

I am working now but good luck! try to help you more later if i can thumb.gif
