FX-8320 OC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What would be a stable/high overclock with an FX-8320? I have a Biostar TA970 mb and a corsair h60 watercooler.

With a h60 i dont think you can OC that CPU really high. Those 8 cores pump out lots of heat,
this is just a wild uneducated geuss but i think you wont be able to go over 4.2g - 4.4g

Thats what i was thinking. I ran it on prime 95 at stock lock for an hor at 100% load and it didnt exceed 30 degrees c

h60 isn't that bad if you do push /pull and have good case air flow. I can do 4.6 on my 8320 but on a hot day i'm pushing 60c on prime runs. Just remember your never going to see load like prime during normal usage.

So for me at 4.6 cooling isn't a problem I rarely see over 50c during gaming.

Don't know much about Biostar TA970 but I'm willing to bet it will be the limiting factor on getting past 4.3 or 4.4.
