post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
FULL PC SPECS



MOTHERBOARD : Asus M5A78L-M LX PLUS AM3+

CPU: AMD FX-6100 3.3 GHZ zambezi 95w

RAM: 8gb ripjaw or riptooth DDR3

GPU: Palit GTX 660TI

PSU: Thermaltake Litepower 600W black edition

Heatsink cooling: Deepcool duel fan tower with 80mm fans

need to know if this is classed as stable

Only settings changed are
*Core c6 (disabled)
*AMD turbo (disabled)
*Cool and quiet (disabled)

CPU temp wont go higher than 57 degrees Celsius at 100% load

The stress graphic you posted (Tree Size Pro) shows it was run for 10 seconds, so you system is stable under a heavy load for 10 seconds. Many people will argue that successfully running Prime 95 for 24 hours indicates stability. That's kind of an extreme test in my opinion.

I run OCCT until the CPU temp stabilizes and then for another 10-20 minutes longer. If the system passes that test it's pretty much not going to give you any trouble.

I agree for the most part but I would reccomend running it for maybe like 50-60min. The longer you stress it the more certain you can be about the reliability of the overclock smile.gif just my 2cents.gif

Right so I run it and th cpu reached 57 degrees Celsius then I throttle down to 1.4ghz then cpu drops to 52 , then climbs to 57 and so forth, how does one stop this?

VRMs/Chipset are probably getting too hot; was happening to me on my Gigabyte board. You can try enabling HPC in the bios & putting a fan to blow on the VRMs

Noone notices hes overclocking on an Asus M5A78L-M LX PLUS that has a 4+1 VRM power phase design?
Please DONT overclock on this motherboard, your motherboard VRMs are not suitable for overclocking, will overheat and cause your processor to thermal throttle despite of your good CPU temps.

If you do choose to overclock please get some good insurance for your house cause it might go up in flames wave2.gif

Get a board that was built with overclocking in mind. Everything you could try is just band aid approach.
