OCing my new FX 8320

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Recently upgraded to a FX 8320, and have only managed to get 4.5ghz at 1.4V but the core temps reach 58C using a H100?

Any help will be greatly appreciated

I own same CPU and same h100i and I get on load less than 60, and to be honest im at 58C on full load at 4.4ghz.

Are you new to AMD cpu specifically the 83xx?

If so then let me help clear your mind.

This CPU does run hot, if you try 6300, 4300 you would see almost a 1/3 temp reduction. (Which I have owned)

However somehow I do not know if you are asking for clarification of "if it should be this hot on load" or "should it be this hot on idol"

If it is hot on idol THEN we have a problem!

1) Check that the thermal paste was placed correctly AND that you did NOT add TOO MUCH. too much paste WILL case higher temps.
2) Check that you put the h100 tight on CPU.

That would cover the "hardware" side.

Now on bios make sure you check the Load Line Calabration, LLC. Check that it is NOT on "auto" you want to reduce it below high or medium (this is for you to play around with) but make sure its not on auto since it may/may not choose "ultra high" settings which in turn would cause high temps. (I personally use medium for regular use, and high for times I am using full load like crazy (trade off is temp of course))

Other than that I hope I helped resolve your issue or put your mind at ease =]

Also if you need more assistance p[lease feel free to join this thread!

You can try a push pull system and see if that helps. Maybe try opening your side panel? I have the default stock h100i fans plus one fan from my old hyper 212 evo with fans quiet profile and hit a high of around 48-49c after a couple hours of battlefield 3. Things you should know is that I have live in a mildly cool environment, around 10c in the winter and 23c in the summer.

Quick update! Msnaged to attain 4.5ghz @ 1.39v with temps of 54C max.. I am new to the 83xx range coming from a FX 4170. My concern was that, I have seen people OC much higher or the same with better temps than I have with coolers that are worse than the H100 for example the Hyper 212.. So I wanted to know if there was any fine tuning I could do to get a better over clock?

Read what I posted and check LLC, and also

1) EVERY chip is different.
2) 8350 is able to OC a bit higher with lower heat/volts BECAUSE it has better Bin quality (essentially the material is A+) so its able to go a bit higher.
