hey guys,

quick notes Antykain you've been added.

now that the business end of this note is done.

I got some good news today. I found my water chiller unit that I'm going to use on my main rig.
I have done this once before using a remote water chiller for cooling. It keeps the water at a nice crispy
50F/10C it can produce 8gph at a 80degreeF room temp. now since my room is never above 70F it'll
be more in line of 9gph. I will use this to pump 10C water through the chipset,CPU,and GPU blocks
on my rig. no radiators and no reservoirs as this thing has a 2gallon reservoir built in.

By my thinking im looking at well into the 5.5ghz range outta this 8150 possibly more.
also looking at 1500core on my gpu and 1700 or so on the memory possibly more on both. depends
on how they take to nice cool temps hehe.

this project is gonna be started around the middle of march. I'll get the chiller first then the blocks
then fittings and tubbing.

I'm gonna do all I can to put the 8150s and the CHVF on the map

Hello new here I just got my crosshair v three days ago. First post so not sure if I even formatted this right or how many times this question has been covered, I have been reading but still not haveing much luck. I have an fx-8150 which I would like to get to 4.2 ghz and so far all I have been able to do is 3.99 but now I am stuck at 3.97. This has been with autotune from the AI suite II. I have tried the overclock routine in the catalyst manage that only took me to 3.7. I have a 600 watt power supply, crosshair V, FX-8150, OCZ agility 3 120 gig, 1.5 TB 6 gbs sata drive, 16 gigs ram (4x4 known weak spot of the system they are 1333mhz), sata II dvd burner drive, and a gigabyte hd6870 video card (the nice beffy one with three fans and unlocked) I had a coolermaster V-8 but I would get an odd error from time to time so I grabbed a hyper 212, course now I understand the error was due to the pwm settings so may change back depending on how the temps play out..

I also have a laptop handy with ROG connect installed and ready to roll. I upgrade from an fx-6100 on a ga-990fxa-ud3 with a 5770 video card. I KNOW the windows expirence score is crap but I have been using it to gauge my machine. Right now I have 7.7, cpu 7.7 ram, and 7.8 on 2d video 3d game video, and hard drive. (on the ga-990fxa the ram showed 7.8 and the hard drive was 7.9). I have installed the microsoft hotfix for bulldozer. My overall goal is 4.2 ghz which i think will get me a 7.8, the hard drive I need to figure out why it dropped did I mess with a bios setting from ide to achi (I doubt but will check), and the ram I may need to just switch out I wonder how much some FAST 4x8 chips would run me!! (I know more ram=bad for overclock from what I read so far though).

I printed out some bios pages I think tweeky posted (if I am wrong sorry!!!) back on page 329 on 2-17-2012. Which resulted in a no boot for me. I need to find a GOOD overclock guide with step by step directions. I have a hard time learning until it clicks so so help would be great!!. I have pictures to post of the system but I wanted to get it running right and valadated. Thanks for ay help!!

hi chip,

ok ignore all ram statements I'm running 16gig and my 8150 is sitting at 4.4 right now. first statement I'm gonna make is I'm not sure about your ps according to my calculations you need 512watts continous at base settings. o/cing is gonna up that drastically.

something else that bugs me is im scoring 7.9 at stock speeds on my 8150 on cpu and 7.9 on ram but my ram is 2133 so I know where that score is comming from.

here is the best I can tell you dont play with the preset stuff in ai suite set it all to default. Now log into bios and set llc to high on both.
save that and boot into windows open ai and click on turbo evo. uptop click on vcore and set it to 1.4000 or as close as possible.
now under that youll see a little thing says more options click it and choose cpu ratio set that to 21.0 make sure your cooling is set to handle
the higher heat I usually keep mine on turbo settings for the cpu fans. try that and see what happens.using the presets it tries to clock up
the fsb and with your memory im not sure how much it can go up.

fair warning though thats gonna draw some watts on your psu so im not sure itll work.

thanks tweeky I didnt know that existed. I just gave him my baseline stuff But Im worried about his 600w psu
I keep coming up with a 512-520watt base with no ocing at all and I know what a chvf and 8150 are gonna suck down with just a light oc.

What do you think?

Couple of other detalis I do have the newest bios flashed. I am having trouble with the cpu speed walking from 1.5 to 3.9 ghz though c&q are turned off in bios. And everytime I try raising the multi above 18. It shows the new number on the evo info screen but when I re-boot it drops right back to x18 for 3.97 ghz. In bios what do you mean by IIC I think I'm missing something there and I need to adjust core voltage to 1.4 yet So I hope that will help. Will start looking for a new PSU!!! But for now what is IIC LOL!

sorry its called LLC load line calibration

it will drop back down when you reboot. you have to go into ai and set it back each time. and you can save it in a profile in ai to load up eachtime.
or once you find something stable you can actually set it and save it in bios and itll boot up like that each time.

ok i see on that screen your running a 220mhz fsb it should really be at 200mhz as your overclocking your memory with that bus speed.
I'd drop fsb to 200 and up cpu voltage to 1.4000 or as close as you can it might be a touch over.

in bios you can turn off all the power saving stuff apm c&q and i forget all the other ones but there are several just read what it says if it mentions
power saving turn it off.

when you get all that done open ai make sure the cpu voltage is at 1.4000 and then on that tab that says cpu ratio set it to 21.0 thatll set you at 4200mhz.
if its stable save it as a profile. then all you gotta do is tell it to load that profile from in ai each time.

If it is a good power supply it should get by

good power supplies do have built in safety

my system needs 716 watts loaded and I have a Corsair 750

Now I'm being a wimp with the voltage!! I tried bumping it up in bios. Not sure if I'm doing it right. And I am having trouble finding IIC in the bios I know i saw it before. I shut offr the spectrum settings and still getting the cpu speed wander. I know i saw IIC before!! But over all it's getting closer!! HCUPID show my temps at 18 cel. while AI SUITE shows 28 at idle still need to burn test it will use intelburn I think. But need to fix the speed walking first!! that and i need to grow a set and put some voltage to thi thing!!!!
