M5A97 EVO Overclocking tips !?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just upgraded from my 1090t which was at 4.1 stable and up to 4.3 almost stable. Now I'm having quite a bit of trouble getting my new chip (FX 8320) over 4.5Ghz. Any settings that we know work for sure on this board?

High FSB vs Low?
High Multi vs Low?
Link HT/NB? Don't?
Voltages?
LLC stuff?

Anything helps, thanks.

Nevermind apparently it was coretemp causing bluescreens right off the bat for no reason. I couldn't figure out why it would crash with almost stock settings in the bios.. Any tips would still greatly be appreciated.
