[S] AMD FX-8350 Advanced Overclocking Tutorial

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello Guys,


I want to configurate my Asus Crosshair V Formular - Z to best Performance configuration that is possible.

I have an FX-8350 @ 4.6 ghz thats cooled by tripple radiator watercooler.

There are so many options to configure the Mainboard.

But i can't find a OC Guide that is not for beginners in the OC scene.

Is There anyone hwo can help me.

I will Post everthing you need to know about my Computer.

Ty guys

Asus actually made a guide for your motherboard, which should help in figuring out exactly what BIOS settings you need to adjust.

http://rog.asus.com/81732012/crosshair-motherboards/crosshair-v-formula-amd-fx-8150-cpu-overclocking-guide/2/

If that doesnt work for you, my best advice is to find another overclock with the same setup as you and try to mimmick their settings. Just be sure that whenever you are manually adjusting the voltage for something, you are reading it correctly and it is what you intend, IE 1.175V vs 1.75, thats a big difference.

If you start getting results from mimmicking another setup, we might be able to help you fine tune it if you can tell us the symptoms of it's instability

Hey dude,


i cant run my cpu stable @ 4.8 ghz. 4.6 runs well. But i dont know all the issus they can happend with the Am3+ uefi Plattform. I never tryed it bevor. and the Digi+ configuration just might be a Little bit tricky i think.

Im @ work atm. I will post my whole bios configuration when im @ home.

Ty you for your reply.

Contrary to many of the posts you may find, a lot of the fx chips you really have to crank the voltage to stabilize a good overclock. Most fx owners become thermally limited before hitting voltage walls. With a triple radiator and adequate airflow to the motherboard, you should be able to take it at least to 5GHz territory, maybe more if you run your air conditioning like a refrigerator.

Amd's official guide is also based on the CHV (in my sig).

You have the right motherboard for overclocking as well. I've got a Gigabyte 990fx ud3 that runs into issues with VRM temps and vdroop, but I can get Intel Burn Test stable at 4.9ghz @ 1.525V with my 8350, peak temps around 47

I really cannot recommend the Gigabyte 990fxaUD3 board for overclocking these CPU's. The ASUS Sabertooth 990FX is a much better solution for overclocking STABLE. The Gigabyte boards VRM overheating is very dangerous under certain overclocks, and the voltages vary widely.

Agreed, However, highly 990fxaUD3 rev4 which has a redesigned VRM with heat-pipe.

I have taken my 8320 up to 4420mhz without issue. VRM stays cool (<50) running Prime95.
