8320 & H60 safe OC

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just wanted to know what would be a safe OC for my FX 8320 and Corsair H60. And I want to do it on my BIOS, not AMD Overdrive. My board is an Gigabyte 990FXA UD3. Any suggestions on the Bus speed, Multiplier and the Voltage? I want it to reach 4 to 4.4 GHz.

I'm not sure how much this helps, as it's very chip dependent, but when I was using my 8350 with an h60 I got to somewhere around 4.5 before it started getting a bit too hot during gaming. At 4.5 I'm running 1.375V through it with a multiplier of 22.5, but your voltage will probably be different.

Though I don't have the 8320, it's all still really chip/board dependent.


For instance, an 8+2 phase board is going to overclock better than a 4+1. You probably already knew that. Also, I haven't had any luck overclocking my bus speed because it just locks up my computer. What you really want to mess with in the BIOS is just the CPU multiplier, because that will take care of most other things related to the CPU, and just adjust your voltage as you go. You can also adjust the base core clock by like 1 point at a time because that will turn it up really fast, use it for fine tuning.

How i got mine stable is:
+2 points if it freezes after boosting your multiplier
+1 point if freezes after boosting your vcore (that means if you do the first one and it still locks up, add another point)
+1 point if a core fails

Use P95 small FFTs for 10 minutes after each modification until you get to where you want. Once you do get there, run P95 AGAIN for 2-6 hours to see if it is full stable. With this I got my 6300 to 5ghz, it's pretty bulletproof. If you think you can lover your voltage go ahead, you can always bring it back up if it freezes.

PS, I dig your avatar.

ALSO (sorry for double posting), the H60 is SUPER good at heat dissipation, though you probably will be at the upper end of it because of your huge TDP. It keeps my little 6300 at 50-55c under load on P95.
