PloniAlmoni By the way, your 1060 is more powerful than a 670.

This is my best AMD build, while not my best GPU, just came in yesterday & I need to ensure it's OK. Good thing it's PCIe 2.1 (or whatever), as the AM3+ platform is the same.

Next upgrade.....NVMe SSD in the 2nd GPU slot! Tried cloning to the onboard one, no go. I figure if I can boot to a PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSD on a cheap ASRock 970M Pro3 MB (in the 2nd GPU slot, there's no onboard M.2), then should be able to do the same here. Yet I'll go with a clean install this time around.

May consider after making sure this GTX 670 is OK, removing a GTX 1060 FTW (6GB GDDR5) into the machine. Case is very roomy.

Other components not listed in CPU-Z:

EVGA G2 650W Gold PSU
Noctua NH-D9L 92mm SSO2 Low Profile CPU cooler with 2nd Noctua NF-A9 PWM fan (miniature version of the famed Noctua NH-D15)

ASUS 970 Pro Gaming/AURA is the best AM3+ MB I've owned. Just need to learn how to OC the FX-8370 a little better (in the UEFI). I don't care for Windows bases auto tuning software, every time I tried one, would always crash my PC.

Buildzoid mentioned (without naming it, other than saying it was a $90 AM3+ board, but he acknowledged it in the comments) our motherboard as an exception to his “the only good motherboards are over $150” claim.
Yep. Over 1 year and 3 months later, the person I sold the FX 8300 and 970 Pro Aura too is still enjoying the board, it has given him no issues at all.

Archol Hey, I know this is a very late reply, but your settings are a bit on the hot side as far as I can see. You set the vcore to 1.44 and with ultra high LLC it bumps up another 20 mV to 1.464 or something. For 4.6 ghz daily that would be ok on watercooling or high end air cooling IMO. I would try setting it back to 4.5 Ghz for daily usage. Also, you're hovering very close to 70 degrees, which is where Vishera usually shuts down (or throttles). You don't wanna be there. You don't really wanna be above 65 no matter what you do. On amd's website they recommend 63 as the max, and they probably have their reasons for that. Have a bit of mercy on the CPU and dial it back a bit and try 4500. Also, you can set everything from the advanced CPU settings to 130% if possible for daily usage. That's how I've been using this mobo for close to an year and it's been working wonders. Try High LLC , on this board it should give you +12 mV under load. I'm blabbering too much, sorry. Bottom line, for daily usage, try 4.5 and see what the minimum voltage you can keep up is. Screw IBT, shoot 5-10 rounds of Cinebench R15 back to back and then stress test it in Amd Overdrive and Aida64 for 1-2 hours, if it passes that it will probably pass anything you can throw at it gamewise or rendering wise (if you use Premiere Pro or Sony Vegas). Hope it helps, sorry for the wall of text and late reply!

I know this is a really late reply, I finally got around to messing around with the bios again. I tried some many different combinations, according to these instructions.....and no luck. The only way I can get 4.6 stable is with ultra high LLC, and 1.44v on the cpu/ x23 multiplier. Seems like nothing I try will achieve 4.7 stable. Using the exact same settings as seen as in the bios screenshots in this post (https://www.overclock.net/forum/11-am...l#post26544732)

How are these temps? (see min/max values) Seem pretty high to me, and I don't know what's core/socket in HWmonitor....since it doesn't actually specify.

I'd like to know if my power settings are OK, (LLC & current capability). As is, it fails IBT if I bump it up 4.7ghz via multiplier. The comp either freezes, or just fails.
