I just got my hands on a new FX 8350. Fiddled with the settings a bit → disabled powersave states, turbo, HPC etc., LLC set to "regular". Using a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P (4+2 phase).

Settings:
4.7 GHz @ +0.175V (max.1.440 V after LLC does it's magic (CPU-Z))

Temperatures after stress (max. load 55° C):

  1. Is this okay for 24/7 use and can this chip be pushed more?
  2. I haven't tried increasing the HT and NB speeds or NB clocks. Is there a chance I could get better results changing these two settings as well?

ALSO:
→ CPU-Z validation ←
→ CPU-Z validation (4.8 GHz) ←

4.7 without additional cooling on the vrms is about all youre gonna get. Check my specs and my cpuz signature. I don't mess with LLC.

Not changing the board, going Ryzen when I have the money, this PC will then be inherited by my 10-year old brother. :D

This. Pushing that 8350 on a 970 board is not the best idea. Good cooling on a 990FX board will yield anywhere from 4.8-5.0Ghz, but that chip will want lots of volts to get it done.

Active cooling on the VRMs might help, but I would be careful that they do not pop.

I just have to finish downloading 3DMark, then I'll try for 4.8 on voltages that should still be okay for this board.

  1. I guess max. 1.460-ish for 4.8 GHz?
  2. EDIT: I pressume "thermal margin" in AOD means °C before shutdown?
  3. EDIT2: I have a bunch of case fans, PC is very cool. Do the VRM temps still present a big issue (I don't think I can monitor those)?

GTA V, all maxed except advanced settings, 1080p with a sh*tload of mods, 4.7 GHz/1.440 V:

4.8 GHz @ same voltage as before (+0.175V / 1.440 V max.) seems stable, erm, wow?

Play safe please,the more concern is with your gpu then cpu,FX is doing Ok 4.4-4.5 GHz on that mobo

Drop the Vcore1.33-1.4 range and why not use bios oc,instead of amd overdrive.

The GPU already has a custom BIOS and I don't think I can do much more with it.

I am using BIOS for all OC, AOD is only for monitoring.
Anyways, does "temperature margin" in AOD mean °C before shutdown?

UPDATE: 4.9 GHz seems stable @ 1.464 V (HWMonitor & CPU-Z):

Nice. I would say you're good at 4.8......at least until the board quits.

The board used to run a bad sample FX-6300 4.5 GHz 24/7 at 1.475 V. I pressume that means I should be okay now at 1.428 V or 1.440 V?

EDIT: Any chance I can fiddle with NB/HT?

Stock HT is 2600. Leave it there. There is no benefit.
NB you should be able to get to 2400 without voltage.

Stock HT here is 2400, hmmm. 2600 works fine.

Stock NB is 2200, 2400 makes system extremely unresponsive, no matter what voltage.

Used to have that 24/7 with this board and FX-6300 @ 4,5 GHz :D

Asus board and possibly a "golden chip" despite being a pib from microcenter. See my last post for tests i use

Stock HT on all 8 core FX's is 2600. Your board just sets it wrong. Most do. ;)

Can't do 2400 NB.........shitty IMC. :p

That's like 75 USD.
lol, that's a pretty good price. :)

Got it 2-3 years ago when my GA-MA770-UD3 died. I miss a 5.1/7.1 sound card tho.

But hey, I should be fine, rockin' six 120mm case fans, hahahaha.

Is this okay for 24/7 use and can this chip be pushed more?

Run some cpu stressing software for 30-60 minutes and if it does not fail, than You are good to go. If not - fallback and repeat the process.
I do agree, though, that adding some VRM cooling can go along way for improved stability.
