FX-8320 w/ MSI 970 gaming overclock - Page 2

post #11 of 19
That's a lot of money to dump into a motherboard for a few extra MHz. It's not worth it at all, especially considering there is no upgrade path for a 83xx owner on AM3+. In addition, if you grab a second R9 390 you are probably going to end up realizing your CPU is holding you back and you'll want to upgrade to a better CPU.

Depends what you play, I guess. Any game that is remotely CPU bound will be a problem.

^THIS.

I also have that exact same motherboard and cpu combo and that voltage is way to high for that board. Once I hit 1.42 - 1.45v, the vrm was hitting its limits. Maybe for some benching, but I wouldn't guess it would last too long running that voltage daily.

You also have a fan on your vrm,s? i can keep them quite cool under load ill post a picture later of my setup , its gettting fresh air from the top of the case to cool them. I took the stock amd processor cooler took of that fan and mounted it in line with the vrms and not getting high temps (max 70-80) which i also get on stock clock without the fan.

Memory also can get a little overvolt, nothing expressive, my Corsair 1600@1866 RAM is rated at 1.5v but even stock, need 1.55v to become stable. With overclock, i run it at 1.6v

I suggest you add some extra voltage on the memory and dont run anything on auto in the bios, learn about all options and with expertise/confidence set the correct configuration.

Maybe tonight i will try a run at 5 Ghz, been working on my overclock for some time but it is difficult to reach the gold mark 100% stable on my system.

Ordered the MSI z170 m7 gaming mobo with the i7 6700k processor and a 2nd MSI R9 390. RM1000i psu and 2400 ddr4 16gb kit. Posting picture of the new build when it gets here😉

If your stuff hasn't already shipped I'd suggest switching out the PSU for something else.

The RM series is overpriced for what you get and has had problems in the past with the mediocre secondary capacitors they use. I'd suggest the EVGA G2 series or pretty much anything from Seasonic.

Otherwise looks nice. thumb.gif

Make sure to do it in the Intel sub forum and not in this thread.

Anyone have advice on overclocking on this board? I can't get 4300mhz stable on my 8320 at 1.44v.

Decrease ram to 1600 and use medium llc
