New to overclocking.
I've been following some tutorials I found here, in OC.net and in Oveclockers.
I've been able to take my 8120 to 4.3K, 1.4V (CPUZ) at full load. Very stable with RAM OC'ed to 1866 10,11,10,27.
Temps are nice and low, 49C max (core temp) after 4 hours prime95 blend.
All power saving options are disabled. Turbo is disabled, cool'n'quiet is disbled.
LLC set to ultrahigh, NB LLC high, Phase extreme.
It was trial an error. With this settings I'm stable.
I'm only doing voltage and multiplier so far, since the other settings are kind of cryptic for me at this stage.
Turned RAM to default settings (1600 CL9), and tried increasing multiplier to 22x, doing small increment voltage adjustments. I didn't dare go beyond 1.46V.
Anything beyond 21.5x and I fail prime95 blend within a couple of minutes or get BSOD at boot.
I would like to get to 4.5K stable since I understand it is easy to achieve on an FX 8120.
Any advice would be very much appreciated.
