post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I picked up new Amd fx 8350 cpu and crosshair v formula-z motherboard.I wanted to give oc a try i followed this guide http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MckeAmnDeTk.Is this the best way to oc or should i change multiplyer to oc?I was able to get my oc to 4.4 Ghz,but my temps at max load on core with prime 95 running for hour was 56 degrees,is that too hot?I noticed on motherboard there is cpu level up,i tried it at level 2 and it bumped me up to 4.4 ghz,but from what i was reading it's better to do manually.

Any help would be really appreciated for this noob,lol.

Just use the multi, I have no idea why he is raising the fsb there is no need.
You can leave Cool n Quiet HPC and C1E enabled. Disabling C6 (core parking) is a good idea though as it will give you slightly better performance. Instead of Ultra High I would start with LLC High and see how it goes, u can always increase it later.

Btw HWMonitor isn't all that reliable either, use HWiNFO or Aida64.

Thanx for reply, I'm redewing the oc in Bios now. I'm following a guide on here under Amd cpu Should I just adjust multiplier or fsb and multiplier both? The problem I'm having is when I put LLC on high and current to 130 my core is running at 54 degrees and that is at 4.4 ghz. How can I lower temp besides new cpu cooler?
