First, good job on figuring out the problem. thumb.gif Would have been sad to go through RMA and waste all that time.

I'm surprised your video card doesn't have a native HDMI output. Even my ancient GTX 460 has one of those connectors, although I too use DVI even though my monitor has an HDMI input.

The other problem you can run into with a digital TV is that sometimes the default VGA resolution isn't supported. Not sure that would be the situation in your case though.

I miss this feature. I used to use it occasionally on my M2N32-SLI board.

In any event, you will soon get used to living without it. I've been told real overclockers habitually clear CMOS and reenter all their settings. rolleyes.gif

I've seen enough instances now where I've been distrustful with saved profiles too. There may be a bug in BIOS still where settings don't always take. I spent several weeks trying to get CnQ to work and only succeeded at getting it working by essentially setting the board back to a pristine state are re-entering all the customizations.

And when a new BIOS version is released, you have to kick back and do that all over again anyway. I would expect the Z board to get a few more updates still.

I recommend reading this thread if you have the time. Lots of good information.

However to get started quickly, the simplest way to get started is increase the CPU multiplier. Your ability to push the 8350 will be tied directly to how well you can dissipate heat, so please be careful. I assume you know about the plethora of sensor monitoring tools available to check package temps.

Around 4.5GHz, you'll have to resort to manually increasing CPU Vcore to feed enough juice into the Vishera to keep it stable. A good rule of thumb I use for sake of simplicity is to have Vcore follow CPU frequency. So if you want a 4.8GHz OC, then use CPU voltage of 1.48V, for 5.0GHz you might try 1.5V. Increase or decrease the volts until you find the lowest value that will pass the stress test of your choice. Many of us use the latest IBT test suite with AVX support. Also once you go past 4.5GHz, you want manually control DigiVRM. CPU at Ulta and CPU-NB at High is a good place to start. There are other setting too you want tweak in there.

HT Bus and CPU-NB frequencies can track together and are said to best be kept between 2200 and 2400MHz.

If you OC the FSB, you'll want to be mindful of increasing other voltages like HT bus and CPU/NB.

Likewise if you OC the DRAM. Timings and frequency will likely need attention of increased voltage. With that Z board, you have additional knobs to turn to improve stability.

it does have a native hdmi but i had read somewhere that some graphics cards boot from port 1 which the first port on my particular card was dvi so i used the dvi/hdmi to rule that out

amazing level of help I'm currently stable at 4.5ghz my temps are all fine at 32-33c however my os tends to freeze if i increase my multiplier to 23 I'm not sure where to go next with that being the case. i've been increasing my cpu voltage to make it stable for my tests if ever it fails the ibt then i increase the cpu voltage 1 tick run again until it passes, that method seems to be working my current voltage is 1.41875

I'm using open hardware monitor and 2 of my temperatures aren't labeled can anyone pick out what they are by looking i don't want to push any further until i know for certain what those 2 are
they're labeled Temperature #1 and Temperature #2

first one is your socket temp and the other would be the motherboard or core temp as well

thanks for the assist if i'm not mistaken i'm completely in range on those temps?

Your pushing it slightly with your CPU temp, you might find it unstable if it's going to run at that temp for long periods of time, keep an eye on it.
