Hi guys,

I have been trying to have this thing working for over a week - getting quite frustrated... I have watched every video, read every thread... Thing is, seems to me that no body out there has the same CPU/MB/RAM combo so can't find the optimal O/C settings for my setup.

I have tried incremental steps, but constant freezing past 3.9Mhz ??!!!!! I've tried through bios, and even through AsusAI suite... I have done it all... Up the voltage, disable power saving options, tried playing around with the multipliers and frequencies... nothing seems to allow me to go past the 3.9 mark.

Even more sad, the only way it gets to 3.9mhz mark is with the automated 'Optimal Mode' in the bios EZ-mode... frown.giffrown.giffrown.gif But when I start from there and deactivate settings and up the multiplier and voltages, it craches again... URGH.


Specs :

cpu : AMD fx-8150
m/b : AM3+ ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AMD970
ram : 16g 1666mhz DDR3
v/c : sapphire radeon hd 7970 o/c with boost
h/d : kingston 240g ssd
o/s : win 8
p/s : corsair 650w
cooling : corsair H80

Can somebody please help me reach at least a stable 4.2 ???

I have simply used the 'EZ-MODE' Optimal Settings in bios; havent dared touch anything else, anymore frown.gif This is stable so far... But of course, I have not tried it on Prime95 yet -- too scared of freezing... I blindly trust this setting because it is an automated setting right out of amd's bios...

Go to BIOS and OC there
Disable Turbo Core. C1E, C6, APM, Spread Spectrum
Set up your RAM manually
Set your CPU multi @ 20
Set your CPU Voltage @ 1.30V
Don't touch nothing else

use OCCT to test
Keep an eye on temps

Ok so for the heck of it, I have put my bios to DEFAULTS, and tried OCCT again...

It hasn't froze yet (urgh..) but weird thing, my CPU usage is everywhere between 94% and 100%... 3400MHz to 4000Mhz.. I think this is because of the Turbo kicking in..!?

Its been 3 minutes so far and no hanging..

BUT my temps are really high ?!? I have a H80, and at default, this still puts be up to 54 degrees CPU (however, cores are at 34 degrees --which one should I consider?)

CPU VCORE seems to be unstable around 1.19V...?
