    My current settings at 4.8ghz with the fx8350 and crosshair v formula z.

    CPU voltage: 1.468750
    CPU ratio: 24
    Load Line Calibration: High
    Max temp with Prime95: 64c

    I am using the Corsair H105 in push/pull and the fans were at 100%. I'm using 2 corsair sp120 performance fans on the bottom and 2 corsair af120 quiet editions on the top. My case is a modified Corsair 600T. I also have all power saving features turned off in the UEFI and i have the extra 4 pin power cable connected on the motherboard.

    I have a question regarding HT Link speed. Why does it drop to 2200mhz as soon as I set my memory frequency? The board recognizes it as 1600mhz and also has the wrong timings. If I change it to the correct freq, save and exit, the HT Link drops from 2600 to 2200. Why? And can I go back and change it to 2600? Or should I leave it alone?

    I followed this guide when it came out, after already knowing quite a bit about it. Worked well let me say but lets see, I have gotten even further just tinkering. I am running at 4.9GHz and multiplier is 24.5. I have my load line calibration set to Ultra High and my RAM running at 1866MHz with 8-9-8-24 timings and set to 1T instead of 2T. My machine will do just about anything. It's almost time to upgrade to the new 960 turbo Asus card I think though. My HT Link speed is 2600MHz and My CPU/NB is at 2800MHz. Runs quite well and CPU Voltage is at 1.5000 as well as my RAM, only downside, it's all pulling from the single 8 pin as my PSU does not have that extra 4/8 pin. I need to upgrade that first. My Idle temps at 4.9 are 31C which isn't too bad but I want it cooler than that. So I shall upgrade to a full watercooling loop after I get the 960 Turbos. I want to run triple SLI, so that shall be my plan. I am ready for this, and one last thing, I am going to get the FX-9590 and push to 5.5 hopefully. I am already easily pleased with my 8350 as its proved worthy over the last three years. first it was on an MSI board.. One hell of a chip. The MSI board quit before this puppy did. It was at 4.7 on the MSI Board. I had it at 5.1 on this one but temps got a lil whack but it was good enough to run AIDA64 and do some testing. Pleasing to see an 8350 whip the new Intel Haswells easily on benchmarks..

    Hi InSaNe ViZzIoNz and Welcome to ROG.

    Well done with your results so far and a nice setup.

    Should you wish to upgrade your CPU to the FX-9590, you are going to need extra cooling for the VRMs, as this will be a problem if you want 5.5GHz.
    This is really pushing the boundary for this chip, (with closed loop cooling) an open loop cooler and chiller would be the way to go IMO.
    Also for a triple SLI setup, you will have to upgrade the PSU. (1300W-1500W)

    A small fan on the backplate of the CPU will also help with CPU temps if you can mount one, as I have done,for around 4-5C drop in temp.

    Good Luck and post some pics and your results when done.

    I realize this is an old thread, but it still applies. I just bought the board and processor, in part due to the guide linked at the top of this thread. This has turned into a two week long battle to get my system stable. For me stable means four to eight runs though Memtest86 (most recent version) test no. 6, and at least 8 hours of Prime95 large fft test, with acceptable temperatures.

    I couldn't even get the board stable at stock clocks, but I'm using DDR3 2400, and that seems to be the sticking point. But I haven't given up and it seems like I'm finally getting close to stability, and this is with a small oc at 4.4ghz. But I'm only up to about an hour on Prime95 right now and there is still a long way to go to reach that 8 hours.

    I have to have the system that stable because a couple of my favourite games, Civilization IV and V are extremely fussy and just won't run on a system that isn't rock solid stable.

    I suppose I could try underclocking, but I'm stubborn and refuse to accept less than what I payed for, and I'm also fairly certain that the problems I am having are configuration issues. There are just so many options in the bios, and I've never owned a system like this before. It's also been a couple of years since I've put together and stabilized a system.

    Anyway, the discussion in this thread has been helpful, although I would like to have more information on a lot of the options that aren't discussed here.

    Llewen-Welcome to ROG ...
    A good place to start would be to start a thread Named "Need Help Stabilizing CrossHair V-Z" or some such.
    List All of the hardware. MB, CPU, GPU(s), Memory X (?Gigs), Power Supply, Cooling, SSD ?, HD ? ... etc.
    EDIT::: I see your Hardware is listed .. and Win 10 pro.
    Some screen shots of your current bios set up would be helpful (Thumb drive/F12)
    May I also suggest that the testing methods are quite extreme and can even be harmful to you equipment.
    ROG RealBench will give you the answer of stability. imho (to each their own, but.)

    Best of Luck .. .c.

    It turns out my biggest problem was buggy uefi Memtest86, but that's in another thread. I just thought I'd share my experience with 4.8ghz.

    This thread was one of my first stops after I got my board, but following the instructions here was almost a disaster, in part because of my problems with the uefi version of Memtest86 and in part because of my problems with my NZXT Kraken X31--which is a fine cpu cooler, but only if you connect it up the way you would normally plug in a liquid cooling unit, and avoid the NZXT CAM software like the plague. But after a month of fighting with my computer, and a ton of reading, and after figuring out what my major issue was, overclocking my cpu came pretty easily, but I did it quite differently from the way described at the top of this thread.

    The first step was to load the optimized defaults, then the extreme oc profile, then the docp oc tuner. After that I configured the basics on the bios, turned everything on that I needed, tweaked the Digi menu so that I wouldn't get voltage droop or over voltage, and turned off all the features related to the AMD Turbo CORE technology. Then I made sure the system was stable at stock clocks.

    Once I had done that I moved on, not to the multiplier, as the guide at the top of this thread suggests, but to the fsb. Based on my month of experimentation I set the cpu votage to 1.45 and the NB HT Voltage to 1.275, as per the information in this very useful thread. I then set the fsb to 220 and then 240, and ran tests at each to see how close the system was to stable. 1.45 is a considerably safer and cooler voltage setting for the cpu than 1.5, and it gave me headroom to adjust upwards if I needed to, which is a more efficient way to achieve stability at the lowest possible voltage--which means less power usage, and cooler temperatures.

    Note that 240 by itself would have put my cpu above 4.8ghz, but it was too far away from stable at that setting, however it was rock solid stable at 220 fsb, and running nice and cool, and that already had me at 4.4ghz. Seeing as the system would boot, and pass Memtest86 at 240 fsb, I decided to try 230 fsb. However I was unable to stabilize the system at 230 fsb either. Note that I am also running ram rated for 2400, but I couldn't get the system stable running the ram at 2400, not without underclocking the cpu, however the 220 fsb and the ram did support a ram speed of 1800 very nicely, and the overclock on the fsb pushed the ram speed to over 2000, which is not bad at all, with tighter timings than at the optimized defaults.

    Only after I had done all that did I touch the multiplier. After some experimentation I settled on a multiplier of 21, which is the stock multiplier for the CORE Turbo, only this small adjustment easily pushed the cpu over 4.6 ghz, and it only took a couple of upward cpu voltage adjustments to get the system stable.

    So while I didn't even attempt some of the insane overclocks I have read about in threads with regard to this processor and board, after sorting out my initial problems, 4.6ghz was fairly easily achievable, and at safe operating temperatures--stress tests will push it slightly over 70C, but under normal conditions, even normal usage that is fairly cpu intensive, it doesn't get anywhere near that. And I am going to be switching out my cpu radiator cooling fans, as well as adding gaskets to the fans to make them quieter and hopefully improve cooling efficiency so I won't see 70C again with any luck.

    I'll post back with how that goes.

    with my Crosshair V Formula Z and my AMD FX8370 I have only been stable to 4.7GHz. I must be doing something wrong. Its been 10 years since i have OC'd a CPU. I am also Water Cooled and even at 4.7GHz, I only reach 37 degrees. Image will be posted once I am out of my Noob account period.
