Opinion: Overclocked 8350 @ 5.125GHz

I have a beloved FX-8350 chip that I have painstakingly fine tuned over the years (and pumped quite a bit of money into) to join the 5GHz club.

It is currently 24hr stable (on a 480mm custom water loop) at 5.125GHz; Bus at 250; HT Link at 3250MHz; and NB at 2800MHz.

It performs nearly on par with an i7-4790k in almost all benchmarks.

My issue is that I recently added a 2080 Ti (please, no "bottleneck" flaming, because it's NOT bottlenecked at these overclocks) and now the CPU temp hits 80c quite regularly during heavy gaming, and even thermal throttles slightly down to 5098MHz (I have seen it drop to 1075MHz on a few cores, but doesn't affect gaming, no hiccups etc.)

My question is: Given the age of this CPU, and the years of glory she's given me, I see two options:

A. Upgrade my water loop and add another huge radiator and some fans ($200 at most) and keep this baby pumping for a few more years

or

B. Save the $200, keep using it at these temps/clocks and when she dies, upgrade to a Ryzen setup


Something else to consider: I have a second waterblocked 2080 Ti that I will be adding to this system that will only pump MORE heat into the loop, and will most likely need a second radiator ANYWAY in the future, so I guess the third option would be to put $200 into the loop NOW, add a radiator, and when the CPU does eventually die (or live for another year or so) THEN upgrade to a Ryzen system with a fully equipped dual 2080 Ti loop.

Edit: Vcore is 1.536v which LLC will push to 1.56v during the heaviest of loads.

The performance upgrade from going to a newer CPU vastly outperforms only improving the cooling on an older chip like yours.

It's like losing a child. I've gone through 3 different MOBOs to get her to these clocks, and while I know it's for the best, it's still REALLY hard to just put a stock cooler on her and stick her in the garage :crying:

no one is flaming you telling you it's bottlenecking. a Ryzen 7 2700 bottlenecks a 2080 Ti and a 2700 runs circles around your 8350.



Don't spend a penny on your cooling system, save your money and put it into a new system.

At 1440p, or god forbid 1080p, certainly, but at 4K Ultra (What I game at), my 2080 Ti is pegged at 100% and CPU isn't anywhere near 100

That makes a bit more sense, but I still wouldn't spend a dollar on a better cooling setup for it. Run it as is 'til it croaks.

Drop the CPU to 5GHz and you should be fine. You will lower the voltage and heat.

Also done testing myself with 3770K @ 4.6GHz vs FX8350 @ 5.0GHz with 1080 Ti and 3770K stomps it in games. Even in the ones where CPU usage was 80% on both CPU. 3770K @4.6GHz is slower 4790K.

I would not spend a single more dime on this platform, I would suggest upgrading and if you don't feel bottlenecked, then Zen 2 is around the corner.

I've contemplated this as well, which drops performance to more of a 4770k, but should still be enough to push a single 2080 Ti, but as stated, I do plan on adding a second 2080 Ti, as well as upgrading this to a Ryzen at some point, and I feel that pushing this until she dies in a blaze of glory may be the push I need to upgrade. I can't make anymore excuses is she's dead :laughter:

My thoughts are grabbing a 2700x when they drop in price after Zen 2 releases, unless Zen 2 are ridiculous overclockers, in which case, my custom loop would pair great and I'll get to work fine tuning a 3000 :grin:
