I need some help with a stable 5.0ghz! im currently at 4.605MHz at 1.48volts, 255fsb, Dual channel corsair vengance 1600mhz at 1699mhz 9, 10, 9, 27, 41 at 1.675volts. Is there anyone out there with a stable rig faster then mine thats running a 8150? my windows expierence index is at 7.8 cpu 7.8 mem 7.8/7.8 radeon hd 6870 gpu, 7.9 hdd. I know that this benchmark is a pice of S*** tho just want to max the number out. I got it in front of the air conditioner so heat is not a problem. Please help its my 4th build and i'm a amateur in the OC field. Tho im not resorting to intel just to throw that out there. Some tighter ram timings would be nice, just i want this to soar!!!!!
the rig consists of:
HAF Full tower
ASUS M5A99X Evo
AMD FX 8150 with corsair H100 cooler
Corsair Vengence 1600 8gb
Coolmax 750watt psu
Radeon HD 6870 2gb
OCZ Agility 3 120GB SSD
and tons of fans
I really could care less about amd recommended factory limitations , just dont want to apply too much volts if not needed and stay under 70 for a short burst benchmark. I would save this oc in a profile and use when needed.
Im going to be using my friends vengence 1866 chips he has laying around so i can save the hassel of geting doa item over the net...lol tho i don't understand how my mobo is junk... it was meant for overclocking, isnt it? It had higher ram speed then a sabertooth.. damn, should of spent the extra 30 and bought the sabertooth..
