Okay this time i will try only the multiplier

You are lucky...
Mine only can reach 4.5GHz @ 1.475v anything over is not stable
LLC on very high using M5A99X EVO R2.0 motherboard
Didnt try 1.5v+ yet tho as my room is quite warm/hot biggrin.gif

I concluded that 4.6 needs a better cooling than mine maybe a water cooling.

I took your advice and I achieved 4.5GHZ stable.

Thanks

I am thinking about upgrading to I5 Skylake within the next 4 months is it worth it as I am mostly gaming.


I would like to thank everyone that helped my achieving this overclock.

That depends, you should test single threaded performance and bench the memory to get a general idea.

Generally speaking AMD CPUs have a tendency to lack performance in minimum fps due to poor single threaded performance, okay-ish cache performance and often lower memory speeds. Since min fps contributes a lot to the smoothness of your gaming experience, it's worth testing if your overclock is comparable to an i5 in single threaded performance.

What applications I can use to test the single threaded performance?

That is awesome.

Forget benchmarks. Do all the things that you do on your computer. Encode video, game, rip dvd's. What is important is whether it meets your expectations doing those type of tasks not some synthetic benches. At least that is my take on it.
