Can my mobo, asrock 970 extreme 4, handle ocing the fx 8350. The power consumption of it is similar to a II x6 1100 t. I was able to OC my fx 4100 to 4.3 on stock voltages with a stock fan.

Here is a detailed review of my mobo and its specs:

Yes you can, I OC'd mine to 4.7ghz with this motherboard. Make sure you flash bios 2.20 from Asrock website.

I have the same board... I just bought an FX 8350 and installed it and its running fine...

Previously I had a Phenom 2 970 be @ 3.5 (that I overclocked to 4.00ghz no problem at all)

Now when I overclock the 8350 to 4.1 ghz it BSOD every time
I CAN NOT overclock this CPU at all

I dont know if it is a bios setting Im messing up, but even just upping the multiplier by 1 it fails every time...

please help
I bought this CPU to overclock....

Also, I have a custom water cooling loop so heat is not an issue at all...

Ive been trying everything and can't get a stable overclock to 4.2
