fx 8120, overclocked to 4.3 ghz, vcore set at 1.425 in Bios. having issues. please help.

Ok, So at idle, this machine is sitting at 4.3ghz and 1.391 voltage. But under load when playing a game for instance im only getting 1.365 for instance. And I just recieved a blue screen. I bumped up NB voltage by one notch in BIOS and am concerned about the blue screen. the system completely froze and I couldnt do anything obviously. The idle temp is 37c on evo 212+.

since last bluescreen i bumped NB and Vcore up both one notch. Hoping for not another blue screen.

Thats why we run stability tests like prime95 and IBT AVX. They place a higher load on the system than games do, so when running a game you should be stable and blue screen free. smile.gif You should also run stability tests on your video card, like msi Kombustor.

On your Fatality mobo, I dont believe you have and adjustment for LLC, which helps stabilize vcore.

You really should not start another thread, it can get confusing. wink.gif

At your voltages with the 212 EVO, you shouldnt be hitting 70C that quickly. I would remount it. Also a common mistake is to use too much thermal paste. Google the CM 212 EVO and watch a video on how to apply paste to it.

If your cores are failing, its because of not enough voltage or too high a temp, so the cooling situation has to be fixed. A fan on the back of the mobo will help quite a bit with socket temps.

hey cores only fail when the temps get hot, during 4 hours of bf3 gaming, cpu never gets to 50C. so i just think prime95 test im using is stressing it too hard. havent blue screened since upping voltage to 1.435 and nb up one notch in bios. but temps cause cores to fail in prime. but no other application during stress testing do they fail i assume anyway. cuz they keep running.

You have to keep in mind that Prime95 is going to be THE application that will determine if your overclock is going to remain stable no matter what you're doing. I have an 8120 at the moment (upgrading the the 8350 in the near future hopefully) sitting at 4.6 GHz, that took me some time to get stable on Prime95. Make sure you're delving around the settings in your bios, disable all the power saving crap, yada yada. If you want a comprehensive guide to overclock the 8120, here you go:

http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=688663

That helped me out and got me familiar with all this. If you're running on air you won't get as far as if you were running on water but the 8xxx series is really awesome for overclocking no matter if you're air/water.

If you want to be lazy.. don't worry about Prime95 stressing. If that's the only time you crash, keep that overclock. That's not the philosophy I live by, I want 100% stability but what you want to do is up to you.
