I also have a similar set up and would be happy to help. Here is my current OC in a pic below. Ignore the voltage in CPU-Z on the Vcore, i am running C&Q so it bounces around a lot. I have Voltage locked in my bios around 1.4125v with a +0.05v off set and i get ~1.42v at 4.5GHz speed on idle and ~1.36v under full load during stress testing. I also enabled Cool and Quiet after i found my stable settings and now my system will down clock as low as 1.4GHz and ~0.90v when its idle or has a light load.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



My board does not support LLC so i have to use higher initial voltage than others to get stable minimums with my V-droop. Your milage may vary. I found this review helpful for rough estimates on voltages under load and idle. If you have specific questions about terminology or anything else post it here.

Hi OP, I'm in a similar boat and I'm going to piggy back off your topic. I have very similar system.

FX8370
Same motherboard
1600 RAM
Hyper 212+ cooler

Have been intel overclocking for the past 4 years, A little rusty on AMD.

Couple issues...
-I don't know all the "common" things to turn off and on in the BIOS for AMD.
-What is a good voltage range for 4-5GHz?
-I set vcore manually in BIOS to 1.37 and CPUz shows 1.45 under load??
-My ram is running in single channel mode according to speccy.

Hi jay,

Couple of things. The list of features on AMD boards can be long and vary by name and availability depending on your perticular model.

Best bet is to disable all power saving features and turbo and other optional settings to get started. Those include but are not limited to...

APM, C6, C1E, C&Q, Turbo, SVM, thermal throttling, and maybe a few more i might have forgotten. Pictures of all your bios screens and options can help more than anything with specific advice.

You voltage in cpuz could be related to several setting. LLC settings, a secondary voltage off set with a +(X.XX)v bump, or even just your turbo cores boosting to higher speeds and voltages if you didnt disable it yet.

Hard to known without pics of your specific settings.

I think it's mostly the power saving stuff I don't know about.

Doing pretty good right now @ 4.4, 1.38v and a max of 43c on prime95

Turned LLC down from extreme to medium and that appears to have helped a lot.

The hyper 212 is doing better that I thought with this chip. Also installed a 120mm fan blowing down on the VRM's from the top of the case.

Single channel mode is usually due to putting ram moduals in the wrong slots. Double check your mgf manual to make sure, or just move a stick to anothrr slot. Usually they should be in matching colored slots for duel channel but not always.

In not sure about the quantity descrepency. 4gb availabe may be due to you running lots of things in the background using up half your total. Mine usually idels with about 2gb in use if i recall correctly in win10.


It could also just be a bug in that perticular software. Make sure you have the latest version and all your drivers are up to date. Sometimes a bios update is also useful in realoving weird behavior but not always.

BIOS is up to date. I updated it today. Checked the motherboard manual and they are in the correct spots. Windows is a fresh install just about, not a lot of programs running. The only time I've seen windows say that is with integrated graphics and sharing RAM for that. No integrated graphics even possible on this board.

Does any other monitoring software contradict this like cpuz or hwinfo for example? If so id say its a software issue...and predict your hardware is running fine.

If not id look into it more. Ill let you know if i think of anything else that may be causing it i forgot.
