I am in need of some help overclocking my fx8350. I can currently run at about 4.7ghz but it is only 90% stable. I used Occt to test my overclock most of the time it passes but my temps have reached 65 on cores which from what I have read isn't good therefore I feel like I may not be applying the correct voltages. I would like to know if anyone can not only help me to stablize my overclock but if at all possible I would like to reach as close to 5ghz as possible. My specs are as follows Msi 890fxa-gd70 Amd FX8350 BE (4.7ghz 90% stable) H100 push pull 4 fans as exhaust out of the top of case InWin dragon rider case OCZ 1250w zxseries psu 16gb corsair vengance 1600 ddr3 with a ram cooler (just in case)(stock) Crossfired asus hd6950 dcii 2gb (stock) Ocz agility 3 120gb Ssd (win 7 ultimate 64bit) Crucial M4 256gb Ssd (demanding games) 2x 500gb WD cav. Blue in raid stripe (steam) Seagate 350gb sata mini Hdd (backup/music)
Currently my Cell bios settings are Amd c&q disabled C1e disabled Svm disabled Fsb 200 Cpu ratio 23.5 Cpu-nb ratio I set to 12x to bring frequency to 2400 (highest I can go without fsb change) Amd turbo core disabled Unlock cpu core disabled Oc genie and dial function disabled Fsb/dram ratio I set this to 1:4 to get my stock speeds of 1600 (can change to 1866) Ht link speed I set this to 12x to bring my ht frequency to 2400 too...because when on auto i was 2600 but when cpu-nb was on auto it was set to 2000. Cant go higher than that.
Voltages Cpu vdd voltage-auto Cpu-nb vdd voltage-1.25 Cpu voltage-1.547 (OCCT shows only 1.46) Cpu-nb voltage-1.255 Cpu PLL voltage-2.522 Cpu ddr-phy voltage-auto Dram voltage-1.528 DDER VREF voltage-auto Ddr vtt voltage-auto Nb voltage-auto Nb PCI-E voltage-auto Ht link voltage-auto SB voltage-auto Spread spectrum-disabled
If anyone could give me some advice I would appreciate it very much...thanks in advance.
