It seems I no longer remember everything to turn of but a partial list is: CnQ, C1E, EPU, SVM, and anything having to do with power savings. You have your manual and the bios will provide explanations when you hilite something. Methinks there are maybe 6 things to turn off.

The reason for turning them off is to get stable, consistent readings on values when overclocking. When you are done some of them, like CnQ, can be turned on again.

Now, how is your ram running? Is it running at 1866 mhz? Unstable ram will just confuse things later so let's make sure it is correct first.

Yes it is a dance between voltage, clocks, and temperatures. You do not want to go over 60C and cooler is better.

Every cpu is different so no one can say with certainty what yours will need. This is a different cpu and motherboard but it should give you an idea of what to expect at 4 ghz. This is with IBT AVX from the link running and the info shown in HWINF64.

My memory is 1866 DDR3 by Crucial. I am going to fiddle around with a few more settings and post some pics if successful. Thanks for the help.

This is the second of the two back to back IBT I ran with this overclock (3.6Ghz)

Ok third run, this time at Very High. Would not go over 47*c. I will now try for 4.0Ghz.

You do realize you are testing with the non AVX version of IBT correct?
That is why you see such low Gflops.

Test your FX with IBT AVX version found here https://www.overclock.net/attachments/13202 but keep a very close eye on your temps.
Better to start with the big boy test before you get too far along. Non AVX version doesn't push the FX enough.

When everything is in tune it should look more like this Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It's confusing , but the package temp on hwinfo is the actual cpu core temp, cpu temp in hwinfo is the socket temp.

At 32C max core temp, you have a ton of thermal headroom on the core.

As for the socket temp, do what you can to get some airflow on that area, place a fan on the back side of the motherboard over the socket area if you can.

Yeah that's confusing... how can my core temp be lower than my ambient room temp? The temp that got up to 47* is the temp that controls my fans in the Ai suite.

In reality, it can't.
There is an algorithm that AMD uses to figure core temps on FX , it isn't accurate until core temps reach 30C + , generally.

Wow, I forgot all about being a member here! Well let us revive this old thread...

With the exception of a few new items, my build is still the same. I have upgraded to the ASUS ROG Strix RX480 graphics card since I started this thread, just two days ago swapped out the 8320E for an 8350 Black Edition and I use Steelseries Keyboard and Mouse. I am also using an LG 29" UltraWide monitor 21:9 @2560x1080. I am still using the Corsair H115i AIO but this CPU is WAY hotter... I fear the pump may have stopped or slowed WAY down. So with that said, I have a question or two on the FX-8350. The CPU is not overclocked and I ran Prime95 for almost 10min. Does this look safe/normal to all of you?

1. What is the max safe package temp of this CPU?

2. Anyone know what Thermal Max Temp of this CPU?

Looks like a botched cooling block install to me, shouldnt be near that hot at that speed and voltage with that cooler.

Could possibly be a heatspreader that isn't flat.
