FX 8329 OC Questions (new to overclocking)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So i just have a few questions to ask here, this is a new computer the 1st i built myself and i overclocked it. so far that i know it is stable at 4.4Ghz. but there are things i just think are odd and i what to test my setting with others that know more about this.

CPU FX-8320
MB cross-hair formula Z
RAM 8GB dominater platinum
OS win 8.1
bus 20x220
voltage at 1.39 and 1.25
prime 95 for 20 min

thats about all i can think of off the top of my head and i will double check here. but the key issue is that i am a very pick with the performance i get out of my pc and a big problem that i have is that win 8 loads to the login screen in 7-8 seconds but takes up to 20 seconds longer after i hit enter. on BIOS default settings that does not happen so i am wondering if i am doing something wrong. any starting tips???

Hello and welcome to OCN! I think you should probably join the 8350/8320 owners club here, there's a lot of smart guys over there. What kind of hard drive do you have? If its a mechanical one then that may be the reason it takes a bit to load Windows. Fill out a rigbuilder so we can all see what you got swinging around over there.

sorry really new to this site can you link the topic or thread with the rigbuilder forum, and for data i got a 180GB intel SSD and 1.5TB western digital green so as far as i can guess the problem is not in the SSD.

I see that you upped the FSB, by chance did you take in account for the ram speed raising as well. A good little test would be to set the FSB back to 200 and raise the multiplier for the CPU to 22 for 4.4Ghz then run Prime

Please let us know the results as that will at least let us know what is off, well point us in the right direction

so current settings are
cpu ratio 22
FSB 200
cpu manule volt 1.393
cpu NB volt 1.25

this time it only got 7 min in to prime 95 before core 6 failed with a possible hardware failure

so i am setting the BIOS back to default settings until i can try again.

Sounds like you may need more volts to the cpu
