I have an extreme 4 990fx in my old rig, 1605T @ 4.2 / 8320 @ 4.8 24/7 for a couple years no problem at all.

Apparently it is the one off best board in their AMD range and near impossible to get in some regions.
Many report the extreme 4 besting the extreme 9 in most cases :S because that makes sense lol

I got it as a cheap option after a nightmare run with gigabyte and found it better in every way.

The one thing I haven't done is ultra low watt chips on it yet. The GD 80 and CHVZ are great boards. The Sabortooth I had an issue with cold bugs ( was rev 1) but other wise OCed like a champ. I gave it to Scott and he tweaked the bios to overcome the cold boot and he's had nothing but a blast with it.

The Gigabyte UD7 I had was a good board but received it from a reviewer that had really mangled up the socket pretty bad. He wouldn't tell me how he done it, but it had tons of bells and whistles. I got One processor on it running. When I swapped to the 8100, it fried the chip and the board. I obviously didn't get the repair as well as I had thought..... Could not RMA this one.

I haven't tried AsRock with AMD yet though....

It's been like a week, I kept trying and trying stuff and nothing works, old RAM is out, tried low vcore, high, power saving on and off, C6 State, software p-limit, tried another PSU just to be sure
last working config is 220*20 @ 1.43v that gives me 4400MHz, ran OCCT for 2 hours and Prime 95 for 1 every day for a week at random times and seems stable, core temps with OCCT Burn Mode were a bit high but I just put the fans at like 75% and temps dropped below 60°

guess I should update mobo or get a 8370 sad-smiley-002.gif:

Well the only thing I can say is that chip is bottom of the barrel. It's low binned because it may not have passed certain criteria to be a higher clocked processor or an 8 core. Some chips clock higher than others, luck of the draw as you'll read here and there.

Judging by the temps, 60c'ish, the cooler is at the limits.

I had that same processor. Never did use it for a daily rig though. Was de-lidded and given away at a contest. It did 5ghz from what I recall, but that was with a lot more liquid cooling invested.

If you do consider the FX-8370, perhaps find the E version. It's only 95 watts from the box. However, I'd still look into a tad bit larger of a cooler. H100i or something of the like. Custom liquid cooling would be the way to go and run like 120.2 x2 radiator and a nice expensive heavy waterblock. If your looking for used, I may have just the thing you need. Find my PM box if interested.

Its definitely possible but.. Its a bit tricky ,you need a good mobo and some time to figure the correct LLC and Vcore for it.
Im running 4.1 GHz on 1.3 V and it seems stable but sometimes it downclocks within the thermal margin or under heavy stress at 60c(which I think is caused by the cheap mobo). I wish I could push it more but I need to upgrade from my 95 TDP then smile.gif I did my voltages on AMD Overdrive and seems like its more stable than just doing it on the motherboard.
