  1. 40c i do not know about the accuracy of that.

    double check your load temps with this.. so 30 minutes of prime. http://openhardwaremonitor.org/

    read this guide and get back to me when your done http://sites.amd.com/us/documents/amd_fx_performance_tuning_guide.pdf

    im 100 percent sure i used that software to keep track of my temperature my pc is not only cooled by the seidon of 120v i have around 5 fans connected to the case im using coolermaster k350 so the one in the front that cools the hard disk then the one in the bottom and one above the psu to cool the graphics card and 1 from above the case and one in the opposite side of the seidon 120v fan so yes basically im running an air conditioning unit not a pc and YES SIR ill read that pdf file and ill be back to u in no time1
  3. i will run it for 30 mins and ill post a screenshot for you
  4. im done reading the pdf and tbh it seems quiet hard O.O
  5. i can make it a little more simple ;)
  6. btw should i change my motherboard ?i think i can have full refund for the motherboard and buy new one like gigabyte or asus 990fx sabertooth..
  7. 1. disable turbo
    2. disable c6
    3. set vcore to turbo supplied vcore
    4. set ram timing to 1600mhz and the manufactures timing and voltage for 1866mhz
    5. increase fsb to 233

    When you increase the fsb it will increase your cpu clock so set the multiplier close to the turbo supplied clock speed.
    Increasing the fsb will also increase your ram speed back close to 1866mhz and will also be increasing your cpu-nb and hyper transport so drop the multipliers on both back close to the default speed.

    These are the first steps... let me know if you need any clarification.

    So.. once you do this successfully run prime for 30 mins and get back to me with the results.

    The 990 motherboards are the best and perform the best for the fx chips but your motherboard does say it is safe for a overclock so i guess it your choice.

    Honestly i never got to read the guide myself before i bought my parts and regret not getting a 990.
  9. i will post the info 2mrw cause im away from my pc atm and getting ready for bed so you think i should exchange my motherboard if so..can you choose one for me somethine lower than 165$
