Got some questions.. Is my rig OC'ed to the max? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
You can't compare desktop CPU's with laptop ones. Laptop chips are designed differently, with tolerances designed for the excessive heat of a laptop case. Some laptop chips can indeed work at 100C, although that's not recommended long-term.

You're not jeopardizing that chip by running it at 1.44v. You could run it at 1.5, and it might experience slow degradation, but odds are that it wouldn't die until long after it was obsolete. You can abuse the heck out of AMD chips, and they'll take it. AMD even put out its own guide to overclocking the Bulldozer right after it came out, telling you what kind of cooling you should have for different OC levels.

I ran an 8350 at 1.48 for about 18 months, temps sometimes approaching 70 under full load. That chip didn't die and is still alive today, and still running overclocked.

If you absolutely can't afford to kill that 4300, then be conservative and don't push any harder than you are. But if you can replace it, let 'er rip. It's very unlikely that you'd fry the chip unless you do something like set it for 2.0v or something.

I agree with jsc1973, becuase I am also a AMD FX owner and I know that the chips are rock sold.
I know that I had gave my chip crazy voltages and I haven't seen any sign of degration happening at all.

If your cpu is running on air without exceeding 60C during prime is very impressive.
Thats pretty much up there for a air cooler,

I know cause I owned a tpc812 and a evo212. I had used them on a 8350

62 cel is fine for 24/7 The thermal throttling is supposed to start at 70-72
