I knew it that isn't the default HT for that chip it's 2600 the mother board is the issue Proper Default NB and HT link speed
That motherboard has lowered the real value of that chip and may be overvolting it as well i only stuck with the boards that were made with the chips the other one's don't control them well
Thanks for the link. Maybe I will have to get another mobo. I'll try setting this one up "Non-auto" and see what happens. It's a bit sluggish and needs a tuning anyway. lol

I think it's the mobo because the 970 and 980 are two generations back and i notice when people use a older board for a FX chip the voltages are just way higher

I should try dialing the voltage back and seeing what happens at stock.

Here is the official answer from AMD on reading Core temps and what their values should be

Official FX-8350 temps - AMD - CPUs

I'm marking this one closed.

If I enable Load Line Calibration then it reads like it should. The CPU gets real hot though - into the 60's and the socket temp is in the 70's. I shut it down real quick.

Looks like I'd better invest in some water cooling if I want to OC this thing.

Yes i highly recommend water i got my 8350 stable at 4.8 Ghz on water full load never went above 55c
Look at Thermaltake water 2.0 professional or antec 920 khuler very good even the 620 khuler is awesome

The Corsair Hydro H80i is on sale at Newegg right now. $30 off. Know if it's any good?

Check the CM Glacer 240L. What ever you get I would highly recommend it be of all brass and copper construction. A lot of the aio's have aluminum rads. Before buying anything do some reading here. This site is 100% BS free.

Thanks for the link. Good review of the H100i.

Edit:

I can't use the 240L. I can't use a dual fan setup in my case as I don't have a large enough exhaust hole. The best I can do is a 120mm or 140mm push-pull setup. That's why I was considering the H80i. I'm not really considering a new case, because it was a bear to get all of this gear that I have into this one and I don't really want to repeat the experience. lol
