Specs:

IMAG1303.jpg 1760k .jpg file

Asus A88X-Pro
7850k
G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 2400
corsair 760i psu
corsair h100i
500gb ssd


APU is @ stock igpu is @ stock
memory went right in @ 2400 shows in cpuz and hcct


need help with overclocking, seems that this apu is way more involved as far as oc'ing goes compared to my 4770k

what is recommended? where should I start?

i would like to try and get the cpu to 4.3 if I could

also get the igpu up decently high as well

what are the steps I should take?



the cpu is stock
the ram is running @ 2400mhz

Unless things have changed in a few months there is very little point on overclocking the CPU if you are going to use the igpu as your main gpu.

cpu cores will down clock themselves to give the igpu head room. (not the same as throttling, tdp + node process limitation)

If this is no longer the case then cool but after the first month and a half after release it was like this.

4.3 is very doable only point to mention is that VRM need to be cooled for anything really beyond that. and it would be wise to cool them regardless.

these chips don't get that hot, an Air cooler or a very small 120mm AIO will suffice. (i've got mine under a h90 and have thermal headroom for days)

also...

rig builder.. it helps

top right hand corner, then add it toy o ur signature in your profile setting..

you mean the a88x pro from asus right? z88x isn't a thing..

ive got a h100i in push right now and that's probably not going to change

also I have latest bios and drivers, all seems to be working fine in gaming/editing/etc

I also noticed in the bios that there are a lot more options

for example what is the difference between the APU and the cpu frequency? seems like they would be the same

I am curious as to what kind of performance you would get with the R9 70 or 265 in xifre while that chip is clocked @ 4.7 (both the APU + GPU OC'd ofcourse)

I'm eventually going to get a 290x but atm I'm just seeing what I can get out of this. even @ stock I'm getting 80-100fps in LOL on medium so its not really THAT big of a deal.
I don't play many graphically intensive games anyway and I don't mind turning them down a little to make them run well

Regarding the Whole business about the cores downclocking themselves when you are using the iGPU, there is a fix for that - You simply use AmdMsrTweaker v. 1.1 and set the P5 state to whatever you like (Your primarely overclock) - That way you are tricking the APU into "Downclocking" into an overclocked state - It Works, I tested it and can confirm it personally.

Make sure your NB frequency is as high as it will allow you too - Easy way to do this is simply to Work your way up - Start from 2000 then 2100, 2200, 2300, 2400 etc. at some point it will not let you boot at which point you just enter BIOS Again and take the NB frequency that is just below the one that crashed - This one should boot and enter Windows just fine - Do a few GPU benchies and a game or two - Should be bulletproof. I am running a NB Vcore at 1.20.

You have alot of room on your iGPU - Aim for a 1000Mhz at least and Work your way up there.

As for the CPU - Set your Vcore to whatever your cooler can handle - 1.4 Seems to be what most people use and just start adding a multiplier - Boot - Enter Windows - Run 20 minutes of Prime and a 3D benchmark, if this holds just go back to the BIOS and add another multiplier and keep doing that till it crashes - Then back Down one notch and enjoy your OC Kaveri smile.gif
