Still working on an optimal & stable overclock for my CPU & RAM.
Never tried overclocking my GPU yet. I feel too risky for the cost & voiding warranty. But might try some day.

Beastly rig,
Might wanna OC that CPU tho. It might bottleneck.
Not sure, but it might.

Yep working on optimal settings for my CPU overclock ran thru 4.6 to 5.2 without breaking a sweat or crashes, but still looking for the sweet spot, seems to bottleneck on The Division, but could be the game needs to be optimized itself because all other games run great.

Running Prime95 for an hour now on 5.2 Ghz & CPU temp @ 38 C. Currently have the voltage on Auto @ 0.95 V. I've tried following others FX-8350 overclock settings like 1.4+ V and didn't seem necessary for my chip. But i'm a noob & haven't overclocked since Intel Duo Core came out so ill post in the proper Forum for recommendations later. Thanks.

Try not to laugh too hard.
Ok so I have been using this computer for about 3 months now with my LN2 jumper & slow mode switch on...
I was reading the manual when I first got it and it wasn't very descriptive as to what LN2 meant other then cooling (now I know liquid nitrogen). I tried it out & left it & forgot about it.
Never realizing that my CPU multiplier was being set to 7 when I did it.
After scratching my head "tweaking" my settings & nothing would improve my settings yesterday I started reading my manual again. It dawned on me that I was in slow mode.

Got my CPU at 10% o.c.(4.4Ghz), & ram 16 GB @ 1866 o.c. currently.
Decided to only use 2 sticks for now, read that it's better for performance maybe?
Got an increase of about 30fps+ in my games. Although never really lagged much, only certain games a lil. Possibly due to AMD FreeSync picking up the slack.
Got a 65 fps benchmark on The Division - Ultra Settings
Settings:
2560x1440p @ 144Hz

Ran OCCT Bench for an hour 1.44Vcore @ 4.4 Ghz and cpu pkg temps were about 55-57C. CPU temp about 70C+ Water cooler about 44C. Thought it was a lil bit high was expecting 4.8 Ghz+. I'll keep messing with my settings but happy with where its at currently. Maybe get a full size case one day for better cooling. I could also put artic silver 5 on my CPU instead of what came with the H110i & see if that helps with cooling.

I have my case setup blowing in the front & out the back & top. Kinda weird setup I think. With static fans in front. But had to make it work to get it all to fit. The Video card was an addition. I planned to use the R9 380X. But went all out & got the Fury-X instead...


Also ran Valley Benchmark
70fps @ 1080p Extreme HD


48fps @ 1440p Extreme HD
