FX 8320e and ASRock Fatality 970 Performance

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
So I'm looking to make my first ever build and I was wondering what overclock speeds I should expect from an fx 8320e and asrock fatality 970 performance?

I plan to get an air cooler like the 212 evo or cryorig h5/h7(whatever I could find a good deal on).
I have a set of ram already 2x4gb 1600mhz ddr3
Case psu and gpu are still tbd. But I intend to get a case that has good airflow and coil management to keep the internal temps as low as possible. And as far as gpu I been considering a rx 480 nitro or asus rx 480. Or maybe a 950, 970 or 980 if a deal comes up that I can't pass up.

So to restate the question, roughly what kind of overclock speeds could I expect from an 8320e and asrock 970 fatality performance with an air cooler similar to the 212 evo? I'm pretty set on that mobo/cpu right now because I can get the 8320e for 90 bucks and the mobo is 20 bucks after MIR and a bundle discount from microcenter, plus 15 for tax and gas.

I'm not trying to do a crazy high oc like 5.4ghz. But I would like to get in the 4.3-4.5 range. Do you think that mobo could bring that cpu to those clock speeds? It is supposedly rated to 220 watts and supports the 9xxx series.

If you read Newegg reviews, this motherboard has VRM reliability issues. A forum member also had this motherboard at 4.7-4.8Ghz, i think and eventually it fried and killed the CPU too. Not saying that will happen, but VRM longevity isn't its strong suit.

Personally, i 'd keep it at 4.4Ghz and be happy. Asrock motherboards tend to run hotter than ASUS or Gigabytes, partly because of cheaper VRM and because of less copper inside the motherboard PCB (which increases heat. See what Gigabyte calls "x2 copper layer in the UltraDurable series). Some Asrocks are also thinner than the competition, exacerbating this and it's why you see more premature deaths compared to others.

The best 970 AM3+ motherboard is ASUS 970 Pro Gaming AURA. Normally it heats 4.5Ghz. With added cooling a member brought it to 5Ghz, as i remember and the only consistent complaint in newegg reviews , is that the colour of the light resets to default at reboot. Otherwise, it's very good motherboard.

An 8320E should be able to hit 4.5Ghz without much effort. Past that, it depends.

I have a FX-831O and Asrock 970 performance.
Here is some of the rig spec.
Cpu : FX-8310 (4.oghz 1.4125v)
Mobo : Asrock 970 performance
CPU cooler : Corsair H60 with AP-29
Case: Antec 300
I have a NF-A14 iPPC-3000 blowning in and on the VRM and mobo. Which keeps the VRM cooled and the socket temp still hit around 60F. The CPU hits around 55F on 25% fan power. The main thing it is hard to keep the socket cooled off.

I have the exact same setup. I got the 8320e and the ASRock Fatlity combo deal at microcenter for stupid cheap last black friday.

My current set up is running at 4.0GHz with 1.238v in bios...droops to 1.200v under stress. If i get any drooping below 1.200 it will cause instability at 4.0GHz...but this never ever happens during light stress testing and absokutely never under normal work loads. This is essentially an undervolting as opposed to an OC at this point.

I have a 360mm thermatake water cooler on the CPU so i plan to continue to up my settings to about 4.4 or 4.5GHz depending on what voltages and temps allow.

At stock a normal FX 83xx will draw about 1.4v while maxed out in turbo mode. My plan is to limit my voltage to somewhere between 1.35 and 1.40 depending on bench scores and gains.

Anandtech had a really solid review of the FX 8320e with lots of charts and pictures. I can atest that my results fall in line with their numbers. I was amazed because i had my own tables of data and they matched their's nearly clock for clock on the voltages, perticularly while under load.

To the guy with 8310...1.4v sounds ludicrously high for a 4.0GHz clock but i am unfamilar with the 8310 line. It may be legit. Its certainly excessive for the FX 8320e model though.

That's typical Asrock. It's like a genuinity proof, ever since AM2+ motherboards. I 've been using Asrocks since s939. I went s939, AM2+, AM3+. The PCB became thinner in AM2+ and it appeared the typical socket overheating. Before i started reading forums, i wasn't aware it was abnormal. Then i started reading forums and to my big surprise, i started observing that people with the same CPU and even inferior coolers, were getting better temps than me. At some point, it hit me. It was the motherboard! biggrin.gif

Yes I know, but $15 for cpu and mobo. I can't beat that.

That's great. Besides, the heat at 4Ghz isn't much of a problem, even in an Asrock.

True, but anything over 4.2ghz will have heating problems with asrock mobo with fx-8****.
