New to overclocking, picking 8320E or 6300 - Page 2

post #11 of 16
UD3P with 8320E will get you to 4.4 if you have good cooling (including a fan on the VRMs).

Don't just count the integer cores. Remember that only the 8 core CPUs have all four floating point units. The 6xxx chips have just three.

I disagree with the suggestion of a 120mm fan single tower heatsink. I would never go with less than a 140mm dual tower heatsink. You might be able to scrape by with a single tower 140mm sink, though.

I have a FX 8310 + 970a-ud3p with a single 120mm fan Hyper 212+ EVO

I run 4.4 ghz 24/7 (due to the bios bug) and can easily run 4.6 ghz

No fan blowing on the VRM sink. What is your VRM temp and CPU temp at 45 minutes of Prime 768–900K in place FFT?

What is the noise level/RPM of the fan you're using with that cooler?

4.6 with that 430 watt PSU? Interesting.

Do you have APM off?

Temps are never over 60 on VRM, I don't even hear the 212+ EVO fan. Its really not remotely noticeable. My h70 and h80i are much louder.

Core performance boost AUTO and HPC enabled and APM disabled

The card in the video was a HD5870 (this is my 10 year old son's gamer) which has been upgraded to a 7850

I did some videos with the rig at 4.5 ghz and a 280x (both overclocked on a 430m psu)

Oh, APM is off? I thought you said you had it on in the other thread.

Temps never over 60 on VRM without a fan on the sink? At what speed? Certainly not 4.4 or higher.

I've only tested 4.6 ghz for a short time, I ran 4.5 ghz for a few months and had no VRM issues. Granted my thermostat is set to 72 f year round

I run 4.4 ghz 24/7

Always HPC on and APM off. I use the c1e or whatever to drop volts for power saving when idle but never APM

I'm not sure which temp is NB but in the video I posted earlier you can see the MB temps stay 1-2 cel behind the cpu temp
