AMD FX-8350 Help
« on: April 12, 2014, 07:02:38 PM »
Does anyone know some good settings for this OCTA CORE????
I just can't seem to get this thing right.
I have it set to 4.2GHz and I was wondering if 4.8 would be a nice spot because I do notice that this CPU does give some minor lag points.
MY phenom x2 II 550 (unlocked cores from the dual core black edition to Quad) had none.
PLZ help me

What are you cooling the 8350 with?

 What do you mean by "lag points" (in games/loading/opening/number crunching?

Without more information on what you have and what you have tried its kinda hard to help you mate.

Can you tell us:
1) mobo you are using
2)BIOS latest version?
3) rest of the system psu, ram, cooler,case
4) voltages used
5) ambient temp
6) what steps you have taken to make sure the OC is stable
7) anything else oc'ed? ram? gpu?

Motherboard plays a HUGE role in over-clocking.  Same with BIOS.
IF by 'lag points' you mean its throttling...thats classic thermal limiting happening.  Upgrade your cooler (the cooler I would recommend would depend on the case) AND lower room temps to see if the lag points go away.

IMHO if it is not 48hrs prime95 stable...its not stable
