Hope to see a very nice jump from my 1090T ^^
I went from a Quad-Core Phenom II X4 OC'ed to a nice FX-8120 OC'ed to 4.4GHz right to a FX-8350 OC'ed to 4.70 GHz w/ high bus.

Each upgrade gave me a nice boost in performance. You will enjoy your purchase. :)

I went from 1090T to 8350, I'm quite happy with it. Overclocks quite nicely, settled on 4.5 with stock volts for a 24/7 clock. Gained frames in CPU bound games, and it makes you feel happy inside to see 8 cores in hardware monitor. lol. only thing I have to complain is heat. These things make oodles of hot air, I finally built a water loop because of it. Right now I'm finally pretty much completely happy with my computer. :rockout:

just looked at your system specs, is that a custom loop or kit?

we got same mobo/cpu but I got the xigmatek aegir with corsairs on it! max temp at stock 45*c while im folding 24/7 which im happy about.

but I do plan to go down the WC route, what are temps like now?

Oh man does this cpu fly. Absolutely love it. I can already see and feel huge improvements over my 1090T.

Probably the biggest gains I've seen so far out of all the games i've tried is Crysis 3. When you turn everything up it just feels silky smooth. Can't wait for the thermal paste to set so I can see how far I can OC this bad boy.

Anyone who has had any doubts, forget about it, shut up and BUY THIS FX-8350!

Also what's the highest OC are most people getting before raising volts? Thanks!

I got 4.5 on stock volts, it's what I'm running 24/7 for now

Edit: I just saw we three have the same board. Asrock ftw

we should start a fatality vishera club :D

4.5ghz stock voltage is pretty good, I need to jump from 1.3875 to 4.1 for 4.5ghz

at the moment im stability testing 4.7ghz @ 1.513v but its got room for 4.8 if goes well, not sure why it wants vcore increases like this but im new to this board and cpu

I definitely need a better cooler although with window wide open its cool @ 45*c!

Mine decided to start sucking volts up around 4.7 too. Kinda annoying, I was hoping to get higher with lowish volts but its doing about the same volts at 4.7. Those are really great temps for air too

Guys I'm confused. I up'd the multiplier to 4.5ghz, but on CPU-Z, AMD Overdrive and AIDA64 all say i'm still at 4ghz

Was like wtf?!?!? So I went back into the bios and it says 4.5ghz



Also on another note, maybe it's because the thermal paste hasn't set yet, but when idle cpu hovers in the 20's but when I stress test with IBT or Prime95 it just automatically skyrockets to 65+

With my 1090T it never went past 45c and it slowly/gradually increased in temps. It never skyrocketed like the fx-8350

So is this just a temperature thing with my FX, maybe I need to reseat my H70, re-do thermal???

i never seen that multi range description as shown in your cpu-z result (7-21) new feature ?

EDIT: seems to be new since 1.64, compared it to 1.63

Does your motherboard have the turbo clocks turned on? If so, that is why you are stuck at 4ghz, because it's overriding your settings. No idea why your temps are spiking since my FX-6300 barely touches 40*C under full load at 4GHZ. Do you have your voltages set manually?

disable amd overdrive straight away, that messes up readings when i tried overdrive it clashed with os and bios.

my cpu done that temp thing when i first put this chillfactor3 on, its been a day now and temps are about half max. i even re sat the heatsink thinking i fucked up. i had to stop prime at 63*c but now max is 45*c been over a day of burn in :mad:

and i found that upping cpu vdda, ht and nb voltage to about 1.25 (2.7 vdda) and cpunb to over 1.32 helped without adding more core voltage. LLc 25%
whats your settings?

and clear cmos a lot, it seems to help with weird bugs for some reason and half my boot time

its my second day of testing so will let you know

Yeah turn off turbo if its on. That looks like whats happening. I've never had any good results from using overdrive for anything either, seems to screw things up sometimes.

cpu's generally come with different vids. something to do with electronics lol

mines 1.3875 stock, and its ok up to 4.4, and then wants a power grid of electric

Ye I have everything that's supposed to be disabled for overclocking, but I got it now. I don't know why it wasn't reading properly before.

I have at it 4.2 for now, going to see about temps before pushing it more. Maybe I should get 2x delta fans for my H70 lol

Maybe the 2x deltas can freeze the blood that will most definitely be pouring out from my ears.

I used Xigmatek paste, worked very well with my 1090T. Any specific paste that have shown to be good with Vishera?

all top rated pastes have about 3*C difference and as long as theres good contact they all work well, however mx's have no cure time. and indigo extreme is rated the best i think.

ive got chill factor3, used mx2 before this and i cant remember the differences apart from mx2 was basically plug n play.

im planning on a closed loop, saw a few im interested in. £100 abouts double rads, nzxt, 100i

on a side note i had 4.8ghz stable earlier max temp 46*c (windows open = nice breeze) and done something, loaded profile instead of save. and lost all settings and couldnt find the sweet oc again. only one i remember was 1.52 vcore. all other voltages, timings pfft its gone now! took effin ages to find that stability!! abso gutted!!

these corsairs are quiet and powerful, i havent owned a huge array of fans but id recommend em to anyone! again isnt it ambient thats the determing factor in heat lol

Hate it when I do that, hours of OCing down the drain...

I'm using the Gelid extreme I think it is that came with the EK block I have. It seems to work quite well, haven't tried any others with water. On air with my 1090t I used As5, some zalman stuff and noctua NT-H1. I didn't expect much from the zalman and it wasn't amazing but the noctua blew me away. It was significantly cooler than the as5 I used, and had no silly cure time.

i use XIGMATEK PTI-G4512 thermal grease with gold grade thermal matrix filler particles and it has no cure time and i like it better than AS5

Also guys

I remember when the 8150 was released there was some sort of windows 7 hotfix, does this also apply to Piledriver or was it just for Bulldozer?
