You should really be asking yourself that question..How far can you push that chip? Before you hit a thermal wall (most likely thing to hold you back).

Well maybe it needs more voltage, maybe you need to tweak something else.

I never settle till I've reached that max that my cooling equipment can handle. But how far you push your chip is totally up to you.

Until you post up all the settings you are using for that overclock I cannot really help you much.

My 8320 is running at 4.5 with absolutely no issue. I have pushed it to 4.8 but that's where it blue screens. Not due to temperature, however. I am cooling with a Corsair H100i and the temps never go above 40 degrees. It sits on a FX990 Sabertooth R2.

What's the cheapest mobo I can achieve that kind of high level overclock on? Or is it simply that a board can either oc or cannot, no differing levels of oc?

boo. i successfully overclocked mine to 4.2 at 1.4 volts.. Each chip is different, so idk whats the problem here. Its not like you need that power anyway honestly... 4.2ghz 8 core is insane to me lol.. i hit 118 fps in guildwars2 on high settings, but the human eye cant see past 46 frames. So its honestly pointless to overclock unless you just want a high benchmark number, or you are producing. Games are fine at factory setting.

Where do people get this human eye can't see past so much fps bs. The human eye can detect much more than that. It's called smoothness, the more FPS, the smoother the game play will feel.

Oh, this is where it comes from... " Thomas Edison said that 46 frames per second was the minimum: "anything less will strain the eye.". They were trying to figure out what it would take to give the perception of fluid motion, and not make a person sick.

Also, you need to look into motion blur. There's a reason films and tv look so fluid at low FPS, where in a game with much higher FPS looks choppy, it's called motion blur.

Basically, when you see something, it burns its self into your eye for fractions of a second, when there's no blurring of the frames that burnt in image makes the switch between images look choppy. With proper, or natural motion blur, there's not such a high distinction between the two frames, blurring them together, therefor making them appear smoother.

For people being throttled on GB boards, you need to get the bios with APM.

You may, or may not have to send them a email requesting it.

I had a 970a ud3 that throttled the hell out of me until I got APM. I just installed a GA-990FXA-UD5 that throttled the hell out of me, until I got the bios with APM.

The GA-990FXA-UD5, which is GB's 2nd highest priced AM3+ board (the next board up supports 4 GPU, this one 3), throttles this fx 8320 at default settings... No crap.

I flashed its current beta bios, and now (with the help of a fan added to the VRM heatsink), am not getting multiplier throttled. It will still V drop, but, this is what stress testing is for.

I'm struggling to get a OC of 4.3 with the above mentioned board, and a evo (I'll be replacing it soon). I'm willing to bet, most who said they are getting crazy oc's with the evo, are getting throttled to all hell.

Anyway, good luck.

Well i just tried the latest bios for my 970 extreme4 (version 2.60) and still have the same problem.

Updated bios, loaded default settings, set everything to auto, disabled turbo, set LLC at 1/2 which gives me a vcore of 1.25v or there abouts under load.
Cpu temp hit 64c after a few seconds with P95 blend test going, after about 15-20seconds the VRM's hit 75c at which point thermal throttling kicked in.

Bit late to the party. Apparently one person is having trouble with their 8320 and is displeased xD


Anywho, Im at 4.51 24/7 at 1.38 volts. And YES I mean rock solid stable. This is my daily runner build. P95 with great temps and no issues, this was after 12 hours of p95, and no I dont feel the need to run it for longer lol.



Heres the geekbench that shows the other data with it

http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/371340


And for laughs and giggles I can raise to 5.0ghz @ 1.45 volts. It ran Intel burn test for 10 tests, and I will not use it for daily purposes so I ahve no desire to stability test it for long periods, but with water cooling, Im sure I can get there fine.

Can I go higher? Obviously I can. Will I? Absolutely not.

And since Im sure people wont bother to read the other info, the motherboard is a 990fx Fatal1ty Killer

You guys showing these high OC's off of low voltage, with unrealistic temps need to download, "HWiNFO64". If you start Prime95, and than select the reset option, you will be able to test, and see if you're being throttled. Just make sure to reset once prime is started, and, screen shot before stopping prime95.

I'm willing to bet, there is even multiplier, or voltage throttling going on major. You're only cheating yourself if you don't figure this out.

Oh, and do at least 2 hours of prime95.

***I need 1.416V for 4.4, which is what I run 24/7. I can get stable at 4.6, with a large increase in voltage. Now, I don't think my CPU is a great overclocker, but, if you're going to make really bold claims, back it up better. What I posted above will give you some proof, such as.



Now, where I did mess up in this one, is I took the screen shot after I stopped Prime95, but, trust me, my multiplier and voltage never dropped.



That's at 4.4, though, I took that picture early. Both pictures are off the save settings, just different multipliers. Both are stable.

You'll notice though, that my Voltage stays with in the range of 1.404 - 1.416, and my Clock doesn't drop. No throttling going on there.

OK, well, than post something that shows your not dropping voltage, or multiplier. Because What you've put up is basically junk. I personally don't think you've got the OC you think you have. I wouldn't expect much anyway, out of someone using HWMonitor when doing their OC.

Put up, or shut up with your snarky remarks.

That's a lot of Vdrop stable OC guy. Look at your Vcore, and than look at mine in my 2nd picture (first one was after I stopped stress testing), The voltage is in a extremely tight range.



I'm also willing to bet your multiplier is all over the board. Half the time you're most likely running at x7.

For people being throttled on GB boards, you need to get the bios with APM.

You may, or may not have to send them a email requesting it.

I had a 970a ud3 that throttled the hell out of me until I got APM. I just installed a GA-990FXA-UD5 that throttled the hell out of me, until I got the bios with APM.

The GA-990FXA-UD5, which is GB's 2nd highest priced AM3+ board (the next board up supports 4 GPU, this one 3), throttles this fx 8320 at default settings... No crap.

I flashed its current beta bios, and now (with the help of a fan added to the VRM heatsink), am not getting multiplier throttled. It will still V drop, but, this is what stress testing is for.

I'm struggling to get a OC of 4.3 with the above mentioned board, and a evo (I'll be replacing it soon). I'm willing to bet, most who said they are getting crazy oc's with the evo, are getting throttled to all hell.

Anyway, good luck.


I have a UD3 with APM option, is it supposed to be enabled or disabled? I was throttling @ stock multiplier and upped voltage a little bit over stock. All power-saving settings turned off.

Yea, make sure to disable "APM". I also suggest setting your "LLC" to regular.


*I never could get that 970a to stop throttling my FX8320. However, it does not throttle the FX 6300 I put in it, with the correct settings.
