It doesn't like it but it can be done. I can get just at 2000 or maybe 2020 or something but beyond that no amount of timings / voltage will fix it. I can post just fine, but Windows flakes out.

Speaking of flaking out, this 9370 is very different than the 8320. So far I've found that if I'm over 200mhz FSB, CnQ as well as APM do not work. And, this doesn't seem to get the same benefit from the 8320 when it comes to FSB overclocking.

The 8320 got a huge increase from 200 * 24.5 vs 272 * 18. This 9370 doesn't seem to affect anything, I get the same score for the most part just a fraction better.

AMD did something with the 9 series. Microcode I'm assuming because it's the same silicone.

The microcode on the 9 series will affect throttling temps and allowable voltages on the newer 990 Gaming MSI motherboards compared to FX8xxx chips. Not sure if that is the case on all bios versions but of the one's I have used it does. I don't think ive ever seen it affect fsb clocking however. You might try AI suite in order to get around bios limitations on bus clocking.

Just for curiosity I tried 201 FSB. No down clocking at all. I also just fresh installed W10 thinking that might have something to do with it but it didn't change anything. I'm thinking the weird IBT results and CnQ not working above 200mhz are connected somehow. Maybe because the board isn't official supported?

Could be, but software overclocking has been a way to get around bios limits on AM3 + in my experience.

I tried OC'ing the baseclock in windows and it did work, but it wouldn't let me jump to 270. I could get to about 225 and it just flaked out. I downclock everything (cpu-nb / HT Link, ram etc) before booting into window. But it just kept locking up.

However, I did pick up a corsair H110i today. Beast of a cooler. I had to "massage" it into my case (case was from an MSI Codex XE Plus) which was not an easy chore. But it's in and doing great.

I'm able to run at 5.2ghz @ 1.680v / 2600mhz CPU/NB and 1866 ram IBT and Cinebench R20 stable. Ram clocks are on the conservative side right now.

Update: Needed to bump vcore a hair, got some WHEA errors.

Not bad temps considering I'm over 1.7v's.....
