Athlon 860K, any one picking it up? - Page 202

After some time spent on tweaking I am stable @4.4 GHz. Nothing spectacular( I guess my chip isn't supeclocker) but a large noticeable improvement over stock 3.7. I am using Asus A88x-gamer mobo which is quite good imo( I went thru the whole thread and there isn't much abiut that mobo which is surprising for me), voltage is a bit high, 4.4 GHz @ 1.5v but it runs really cool(max temp 50 deg on Corsair H90) and max power draw only 97.8 Watt. NB @2000 MHz with 1.19v. Ram 2x4Gb HyperX Savage 2400MHz with auto timings.

4.4 is nothing to sneeze at. I've had mine as high as 4.5 but IMO the performance gain wasn't worth the extra volts so I run at 4.4 also. From what I can gather, a stable 4.6 and above is mostly luck of the draw. I never was able to achieve a stable 4.6 but I'm still learning all this as I go and time is sometimes kinda tight for playing around.

Maybe I'll pop over to best buy and pick up a cheap-o AIO rather than making a 100 mile trip to microcenter or fry's.

Yeah, that might be useful. This morning I've run the 860K in both the UP4 and the Asus board, and I have also run the 7700K in both. Neither chip is a good clocker, both hit a wall around 4.4ghz it seems like even with 1.5V+. I really wish I didn't kill my old 860K, that thing was freaking golden, 4600 stable at only 1.425V.

This is my cooling setup right now, slightly overkill for this chip haha:

Cool. I may accidentally pick up a cooler on my way to home depot today (don't tell the wife). Tonight I'll make sure everything is updated and try to get going on it.

Currently, I'm running win10 on the gigabyte f2a88x-up4 board and I keep getting random reboots when I enable either of the memory profiles. My memory is the 2400mhz corsair. I disabled the memory profiles and that has cut down on the random reboots. Windows says it is a memory error. The overclock utility gives me program failed to load properly errors too. Is gigabyte going to update their utility to be compatible with Win10 anytime soon?

The Gigabyte board doesn't do well with 2400mhz RAM without a lot of tweaking. I was never able to get either of my UP4's to do 2400, they both hit a wall at 2133. Meanwhile even the $45 MSI board I had could do it just fine with the same chip and memory kit.

Does your PC just freeze at random and you have to force restart it ? Cause if that's the issue, I had that on my F2A88XM-DS2 and I know of a solution. Happened on win 8.1, so if thats the problem, it's not win10 specific.

I'm down clocking to 2133 as well too.

I get these windows ran low on memory an needs to reboot errors, and I have 16GB by the way. The reboots seems to happen after long gaming sessions.

Have you checked the BIOS to make sure all of your modules are being used? I just had to RMA my UP4 because it was doing this (look at installed size vs enabled size, Windows was showing the full amount btw but only using half):

I have a question guys. Can a PSU affect coil whine in motherboard ? I have XBR and I still have some coil whine, that really kicks in when overclocking. I had a lower quality gigabyte board before, and coil whine was slightly worse, but it didn't go away entirely with the XBR. For some reason few weeks ago, the whine skyrocketed and I was forced to put my PC in an awkward place in my room, just so I can minimize the sound coming from it.

I really can't be that unlucky to have a second board in row that emits the same noise, so I was wondering, is it possible for PSU to be sort of incompatible with certain configs and cause them to coil whine ?

Also, has ANYONE had any coil whining issue with their Athlon setup ?
