More about sabertooth rev2 8350 overclock
  1. 62 is max temp , and yes 212 should keep you under 60c , I use a deepcool mc300gx and it keeps my 8350 under 55c @ 4.4 so the 212 should do better
  2. I have my FX8120 at 4.3 ghz. AND STABLE with my Phanteks PH-TC14PE.
  3. thanks guys, is 62 really max temps. or is 70 allowed? i mean wouldnt it shutdown before it frys anyways?
  4. 62 is max.
  5. Best answer
    Well the EVO can definitely handle the 8350 @ 4.5Ghz but temps will be higher There is no official MAX TEMP for the 8350 it seems. Most do not want to go over 62c for 24/7 use.

    It all depends on how much voltage you need
  6. thanks redeemer. and others.

    any official max temp?

    still looking for an answer

    so 62 is safe max temp or temp it will shut down at?
  7. Best answer selected by iceclock.
  8. My 8120 shut down around 68.
  9. hmm. i guess if i monitor temps i should be fine, and full load usually only when stress testing anyways right.
  10. Phanteks PH-TC12DX, new model from phanteks, it's usually around 60$ either in the usa or canada.
    Review :
    A bit late, but just to give that option.
