fx 8320 throttle at 51c

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello all,
been trying to get my fx 8320 at a stable point that wont throttle , which for some reason no matter what voltage weather i add or take away seems to throttle down to 1.4ghz @ 0.9 V once it his 51c-51.5c granted takes some time but still it will throttle for around 5 seconds than bounce right back.


My question is what could be causing this is it my board vrm getting to hot and causing the throttle, or some random bug and may need to clear cmos

Any thoughts or suggestions at this point would be greatly appreciated as it is driving me crazy.

P.S.
only change to rig in sig is

That sure sounds like VRM throttling to me. Do you have OCCT?

If not, get it and run it and see if it looks like this.


If it does it is your VRMs. Put a fan on them.

Took almost 10 mins but finally dipped


I might be able to drop v core little bit more before i run into trouble going to try for 1.33-1.34 and see if it can stay stable and not throttle

the point was to see what it looked like when it was throttling I think. If it's not throttling immediately it's because heat is building up in your case. Need more air on that motherboard. What does your case setup look like?

Yeah. I'm surprised that it took so long for it to bounce back up. My problem was bad case air flow causing hot air to build up over the VRMs. The single tower cpu cooler didn't help matters either.

I had a total of 6 case fans then too. 4 intake and 2 exhaust.
