FX-8320E @ 4.4GHz and 1.25 Volts. Pushing further

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I ran prime 95 for 12 hours at these settings and I find it insane that it is able to keep stable at such low voltages. Does anyone else on the forums who has this chip able to run it like this? I am going to try for 4.5, 4.6 and 4.7 or higher if I have the time this week. My temps are 48 Max on the CPU and 59 on the Socket. I put a fan behind the motherboard to keep the socket temps lower, really worked well.

Thats a realy good chip u got there. My Fx6300 runs at 4.5ghz with 1.4v and thats only 6 cores!

I know right! I am seeing all of these people running the 8 cores at 1.4 to 1,45 volts and I'm sitting here at barely 1.25. I am very impressed with this chip.

Get better cooling and go for 5ghz+ my 8320e was doing 5ghz@1.44v under load 63c max temp with my Assassin cooler with 3 good fans.

Nice chip, what cooler do you use? My hyper 212 EVO won't keep my chip under 70 (socket same temp cause fan behind) if I get it under full load in some loads, although rendering seems fine as it's not as heavy full load. I used to have a Seidon 120V that did the job with keeping it at like 55 (socket under 70) but figured I'd replace it for similar performance but get rid of the water. Apparently nope it was a downgrade so swapping back later.

good for you and i do like the idea of a fan behind the motherboard thumb.gif

Congratulations, OP. You're experiencing the reason why so many AMD fans are at least cautiously positive about the newer FX chips.

Yours is actually better than most. 4.4 ghz @ < 1.3v is fantastic. That's so much better than an average 8350 that it's not even funny. Do you have a Kill-a-Watt or other power measurement tool? It would be interesting to see your average power consumption numbers.

Also, when you test with Prime95, try this (assuming you aren't doing it already):

Use a custom torture test
Set minimum AND maximum FFT size to 768
Check the box for running them "in place"

Let er rip! And make sure it's version 28.5 (or later, once they release another version).

I am using an Arctic Cooling A30. So far I have nothing but great things to say about it. If I hit a wall and have to up the voltage and the temps go to high I plan on getting a Corsair H100i.

My 8320 overclocked really well until I hit 4.7 ghz. I got to 4.6 on 1.4v (could probably do lower) and temps are right at 70C when running prime. I have a H110.
Anymore voltage I put on it to try and get to 4.7 just isn't stable. Hopefully your chip doesn't run into a brick wall like mine thumb.gif
