Cant OC past 4.5 FX 8350

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
I have a FX 8350 with a asus m5a99fx pro r2.0, it's currently OCed to 4.53 but for whatever reason I cant go further than 4.53. Everytime I run prime 95 on 4.6 OC it either goes over 90c and and shuts down or either the OS freezes... I have a hyper 212 with 2 fans and a zalman z11+ case, i changed the fan on the back from exhaust to intake btw.
Any help? Thanks thumb.gif

I think cooler restrictions are the major factor here. I wouldn't expect a Hyper 212 Evo to run an FX more than 4.5GHz.

I think youre just messing up your airflow that way. I would take the back exhaust and have it exhaust at the top.
4.5 - 4.6ghz is about all you can expect from the hyper 212 on the 8350. You can reduce your cores to four and make over 5ghz though.

I changed that fan because the front intake cools only the hdd. I also have a top exhaust, and the stock cooler fan on the gpu. Gonna try 4.6 again
