Need Advice

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody, I'm new here and I need some advice from you wise ones.


I just put together a Asus pro gaming aura with a 1000w corsair RM1000X PSU, AMD FX9590 CPU and 32 gigs of Gskill DDR3-2133 PC3-1700 CL11-13-13-31 1.5v ram, and 2 Powercolor Radeon r9 390 video cards running in crossfire.

I want to overclock the CPU from its 4.7 stock state to 5Ghz but I don't know the numbers to punch in the bios....does anybody have that info? I tried putting the 200 to 213 and that gave me 5056Mhz and it shows up in GPU-z as such, but every time I run prime 95 4 of the cores stop immediately with some kind of error like....hardware failure? SUM failure? I don't know what that means but all the hardware is brand new. I had seen somewhere that that error means you have to "increase the cpu voltage" but I haven't a clue how to do that and don't want to fry anything.

I don't know if someone could just give me the numbers to punch in that would be awesome but I don't know if its just that simple and that's why I'm asking you guys



Thanks in advance for any help you may give =)

I suppose a good first question would be,does it survive prime 95 without any change to the bios,at stock settings?

Sorry I can't provide you answers,but the voltage may be going up when you bump from 200 to 213 already.

Cpuz shows the voltage(check under full load)so you can just check it and report back if they are the same under load for 200 and 213.

Welcome aboard.

You aren't going to be able to just punch in numbers; your particular combo is going to require serious cooling in addition to lots of testing and retesting in order to reach and maintain a stable and relatively cool permanent 5GHz overclock.


It will behoove you to do some general reading of some of the more popular threads in the AMD forums so you can ascertain what and how much work you will need to put into achieving your goal.

well it am 5056 right now...and I can play all my games without crashing at that, and my cpu never goes above 46c I'm using a Corsair H115i in a corsair carbide air 540 case with 2 140 fans on the rad 2 in front and one in back...tremendous amount of airflow comes out that back fan, and I have the rad and fronts in pull...pulling air into the case from the cold air in the room then the 140 at the back pulls it out of the case...its like a hair dryer on full blast amount of air coming out the rear fan....but I don't know if the 5Ghz I have now is the best way for long term...like I said all my games play no crashes or lags but prime 95 insta stops 3-4 of my cores the second the test starts with those errors

ok I will go back to stock settings on te BIOS and report back the results if prime95 still gives me those errors..be right back











SO,the prime 95 works fine now no errors at stock speeds, but I have No idea why gpu-z is reporting my cpu as a 4.5Ghz when the 9590 is a 4.7 Ghz cpu...does setting things to stock decrease the Ghz?

I just wish I could find a video specific to the asus pro gaming aura motherboard and 9590 cpu for overclocking. so far I haven't found a overclocking tutorial video for it and from the overclocking videos I HAVE watched its just too confusing because the bios is different on those MB vs Mine so I don't know if should even use those settings....very confusing and frustrating lol...=(

Trying to overclock as 9590 is not for the feint of heart. Your motherboard probably isn't up to the task. Unless you have a custom loop your cooling isn't going to be up to the task that's for certain.

no matter, I get 5GHZ by just changing a number from 200 to 213 in my bios lol, and while prime 95 may fail, cinnebench doesn't fail., cpu-z "stress CPU" doesn't fail, none of my video games or my video editing/rendering software fails, those are fast as HELL now, and I never get above 61c socket and 48 core, so who cares about prime 95 LOL. so for all intents and purposes ...I have 5GHZ working on everything i need it to work on so win win. =)

I wish you the best of luck!

Just an FYI, neither Cinebench or CPU-Z stress tests are considered much of an actual stress test for system stability. But to each their own.

You really should give this read http://www.overclock.net/t/990229/stress-testing-warning/20#post_13127125 on the topic of stability.

I would gladly offer help (check rig sig below) but it would appear you have the "Need Advice" thing well under hand rolleyes.gif
I give your OS maybe two weeks or so before issues come along.
