The vishera owner's thread has a great ocing guide and lots of useful and important information. Also when I was putting my system together, I wouldn't post and my system would shut down unless I connected my cpu fan to the header on the motherboard. Yeah it's pretty basic but hey lol
Just out of curiosity,where is this thread?Is it the FX 83XX club?

What cooler are you using out of interest?

Hahah didn't know! Great to hear your chip working well for you. I have my chip running on a water loop nothing special thumb.gif

Wow, 4.8 sounds really good! I'm surprised the Arctic Freezer can keep it cool though, i thought the 8320 would generate too much heat but it's goot to be able to swap the chip out and carry on. Gives me a bit more time to look at coolers and see what else comes around cause it seems that each new cooler is better than the last! But afaict the Mugen 4 is about as good as it gets. smile.gif

BTW,I read about a small trick people use here.Stick the stock cooling fan over the VRM heatsink so it keeps cooler.It can probably(maybe) help you get a few Hz higher

Thanks i'll check it out. I need to get a 3 pin extension cable for the front case fan, that's not even connected so should help decrease temps further but i've got a nice increase in performance for what i wanted anyway. smile.gif

Happy to hear that!

Yeah good little chip. I'm working on a project atm with lots of tracks and fx and it's hitting about 50% on the cpu at 3.8ghz. It shut down once from heat playing the witcher 2 but updating the bios and gpu drivers seems to have resolved any issues. smile.gif

It'll be interesting to see how far i can push the cpu on the arctic cooler but i think i'd have to ramp up the fan speeds to get much over 4ghz. Thanks again to all for helping me with the upgrade. cheers.gif

If your computer shuts down from heat then I think you have a problem. Especially at what seems to be stock speeds. Have you ran any stress tests like Prime95?

It was only once, apparently The Witcher 2 is a very demanding game and it's a known issue so I dialled back the settings gpu a bit and not had a problem since. CPU was showing 73c when i rebooted so i switched from silent to normal with the fan profiles which is a bit more than updating drivers i realize. redface.gif

I ran Prime yesterday to test heat for about 20 minutes but i mean to do some proper testing tomorrow to see where the threshold is. I do check the case for heat when i'm pushing things and it hasn't got close to what it was when it shut down so i'm assuming it's good. The heatsink itself doesn't get very hot either, i thought the cpu would be hot enough to fry eggs on from what i read hence all the questions about coolers but everything seems to operating within normal parameters. thumb.gif

Good luck!
