Yep. My board is only 6+2 and I have pushed 1.6v through it with no problems.
im getting my ass kicked by both , my loop or cpu block(prob this,EK freebie with the kandalf) arent cutting it and my mobo is shit apparently in all seriousness i do like the mobo its been nice ocing this pc and i do have plans yet ,,,and ive nearly got my new car bought so ill be trying a bit harder soon
and its purely temps that hold me back ive seen 74+ core temps at 1.55
this is partly a joke but lets swap..... im at my witts end with this mobo, its good and beefy.. does some great stuff but is lacking that bit of glamour.
if all else fails then we could trade back lol
ooohh ive not even broke the 62*c at all not even got near it, prime at 4.9ghz was 10*c off that, a cinebench which lasts ages at 5.4ghz hits 40*c on core (lower ambients tho)
ive got plans afoot but i need all the 4 pciex's too
i got to be honest i get max 62 socket temps but core reaches beyond that ,im starting to doubt their accuracy as 74 is balls hot yet my blocks not hot to touch, might really really be a poor block is also my thinking
I know some guy posted that when he changed blocks he dropped 10*c
but a decent performing block is around £80+
this raystorm does ok and even better when lapped together. once upon a time it was rated best before others brought out theirs.
ill leave this here

I definitely want to try a new block (thinking Ek supremacy latest) before giving up but ive a 320 u60 rad and another decent pump to fit before I give up oh plus a 120 fan modded into the rear of the mobo base ie socket rear and mega cable tidy
quick update on the bios thing, well there wasn't any extreme bios.
but they gave me some nice performance graphs and a different bios not on their site.
I shall be testing the hell out of that one.
more to come!
I did a few with and old X4 9850 I have had it up to 3611 verified on air and was benching the onboard video for the M3N board it fits into. I also have a X4 965 sitting here that I want to kick around a bit but haven't had time yet. Should also have a de-lidded FX6100 on the way soon, from a contest. I have thought about picking up maybe a 4 core of some sort to tinker with as well but we'll see. Need to replace a timing chain in the Caddy so I' have to put that off a bit.
I'm running the Koolance 380A, sweet little block mrk. It also looks sexier IMO
I think I am going to go with this mosfet cooler with 2x 40 mm fans for my UD3. And find a good hsf candidate for the northbridge.
That should certanly hel out alot. These octacore CPU's are hard on equiptment.
yoo johan, thought I scored lucky with a different bios, then it locked up at 1.68v
although this bios has got me 5ghz stable on prime for the first time ever...
I shall be buying asus mobos from this day forward tbh!
Yep I've stuck with them for years and even had 1 RMA that was nearly painless. Call me fanboy if you like but I don't think I'd buy anything else when it comes to the AMD side of things.
Kind of a 2 edged sword with the BIOS, too bad it didn't get you what you wanted D1nky!! Mo Powa!!!!!!!!!
yoo johan is ucbench single threaded?
its old as hell (DL from hwbot site) and doesn't recognise FX chips or anything.
also ive just taken your wprime 1024m, just literally just! LOL
I certainly hope so. it is running great right now but I don't want to push it to much further until I get better cooling on the mosfets and have the 8350 under water.
you still casting your spell on the CPU to get to 8 Ghz? No more than 5?
I just picked up some new ram today Geil EVO VELOCHE 2133 on sale and couldn't resist. They have the 8350 on sale too might grab another one to see if I can grab a better sample than mine. The volts I need right now are outrageous for the clocks.
That's the only way if you really want to make it dance.These need a big trough to feed em
Well I am working on getting the watercooling setup. It is on a leak run for a bit so far so good. Should have watercooled benchmarks up tomorrow at some point.
wut H2O? no LN2 or some liquid from Mars?
Nope nothing crazy yet. LN2 and DICE for that matter are a bit harder to come by here.
Sorry missed this part last night. UCBench is multi treaded and cpu bound think Wprime only it's harder on the CPU like Cinebench
Nice, lots of raddage in that box.
yea I figured out how to use it, set cpu=8
although I couldn't get a decent score, about 1k away from yours.
what instruction set do you use?
new chip arrived. Time to get benching
pics or it didn't happen
