    My current FX8350 has been OC'ed to 4.8 and 4.7, but no matter what I do it seems to fail OCCT in about 1 minute. 4.6GHz is the best stable OC I've managed...
    Probably most of the reasoning for your slightly unstable overclock at higher speeds is a result of the board. I also use a Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 and the one thing I noticed about it is that despite the excellent power delivery on the board, it is still lacking in comparison to the Gigabyte UD7 and Crosshair at higher clocks (as well it should be, otherwise how do you justify the price premium for the other boards over the Sabertooth?).

    What the Sabertooth is EXCELLENT with is thermals: the better your case cooling, the better your thermals will be with the Sabertooth. That board has got to be one of the coolest running boards I have used, and has a rock stable BIOS and feature set that is actually functionally useful. Essentially it boils down to higher end boards using more robust components that can deliver cleaner power the more the voltage is pushed. What kind of voltage are you using to get your 4.6 Clock speed? 4.6-4.7 GHz is fairly typical of Sabertooth boards, as well as the UD5 and the Extreme9 from AsRock. Getting higher than that (addressing Sandy's build) is especially telling of the strength of your individual chip. I know that with my board I am fairly certain that I can clock past the 4.5 GHz that I presently sit at, but my H100i uses only a single set of Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition fans, so temps get a bit on the high side if I try to go any further.

    Very nice answer! Basically I got lucky to have a good chip. Then added water cooling and a solid PSU. The UD5 is not without its issues. It is work to get a high oc with it. I spent days playing with this thing. The bios could use some work. It also have issues with voltage drops. They fixed that is the v2 and v3 versions. Btw how did I get in this convo anyways? Lol

    LOL I included your build as a reference point in the discussion since it uses a motherboard that is considered to be very much in the same category as the Sabertooth 990FX R2.0, and because your particular build is the exception that proves the rule. I basically answered as though it were me asking the question: I would go through and check the build specs of some of the most active members, and look for the guys that have stuff in the same basic range as mine, then see if there were any overclocks listed and what they were. I would eventually come across yours and think, "well wtf, this guy overclocks his CPU for DAYS on comparable equipment... how is he doing it," then examine the peripherals you use that make it possible. Ultimately it still wouldn't make too much sense, and I would have to go and ask the question anyways making generic reference to a "build similar to yours". My response sort of saves him from having to ask that question lol x-D

    Nice homework and deductive skills. I also think having high speed memory helps. I tried to oc this chip before with 1600mhz kit and didn't do as well. Moved to the 2133mhz 2x4gb kit and was able to kick up ht and other speeds. Kenny taught me that it is easier to get a stable oc with 2 sticks of memory instead of 4 sticks. I sold my dominator 2133mhz 4x4gb kit and got the hyperx predators I have now. World of difference on stability. I also don't touch my voltage until I have exhausted every other option.
    Can't express how important the h2o cooling helps to make it possible. I was going to try and hit 5ghz this weekend but I don't know if I will have time. I want to see 5ghz! I have a 2400mhz kit if I need it.

    It might have been that the 2133 MHz kit was just downright better than the 1600 MHz kit, but yeah the AMD platform seems to WANT to like high speed memory, but it can't (yet). With Intel though the faster the memory gets, the LESS likely you are to achieve better overclocks, it's weird. I digress though... and yes, water cooling is deffo a must with these chips, especially given that there are STILL no official publications on proper thermal limitations of these chips and they can get pretty hot pretty fast, and heat will ALWAYS be a limiting factor when overclocking.

    Voltage and Heat are the to main factors in overclocking stability.... They are also the main reason of high failure rates if not cooling properly..... Which is why i always stress that having the right cooling can make a world of difference..

    Any of course the MB and chip plays a big role.. and one thing I have learned over the years is that there is no one chip created EXACTLY the same... Every sample I have played with always vary... even coming form the same line up... I had 2 8350 at one time and they both overclocked very differently...

    You have been unlucky...! On wich mobo/psu and cooler you reached those results? I've reached 3.7GHz with no overvolt at all....and I considered myself unlucky with this cpu! lol

    Sandy are you running the FX8350 or the FX8320 shown in your system specs??

    Looks like it at 4.8 ghz! I see you are running the same board I was interested in the Gigabyte Ga990FX-UD5! Impressive OCing maybe I can save myself a little cash and get the FX8320 and I got the AMD Gamers Edition memory 16gigs at 2133!!

    I learned from the best! The performance difference between the 8320 and 8350 isnt that great so if you can save a few bucks go with it.

    Sandy I just might have to give it a try if you can pull down that king of impressive numbers then maybe I can get in there also and get my new build finished! So Ill start planning on watching the black friday sales fro now till Christmas and maybe sell a couple items I have if I have to to make it happen! I also have a decent GPU to go with it so see what happens!

    Nice. Will be a decent system. Keep plugging away bro. If I part with the 8320 you will have first say on it.

    Thats a generous offer I appreciate that! Im thinking Im going to start a new thread over in the BUY Sale and Trade Thread and post some new parts that I possibly stand to part with and put them up for sale to help me get my build finished as far as CPU and motherboard have everything else to do the build except for those 2 parts and maybe some water cooling! Im probably not going for any etreme ocing but I will do some so Ill be considering getting a cooler later! Ive got this Antec 620 Cooler maybe if I throw a couple of 140mm Phantek fans I have on hand it mild stand up to some mild to medium ocing?

    Given my own personal experience with this cooler, I gotta say it's really quite decent even with just the one fan it comes with. Two fans does help tremendously, though not 140mm. This unit is designed for 120mm fans, and putting on 140's will just allow you to run lower RPM's; the cooling efficiency of the unit may, in all likelihood, drop if you step up in size. I'd suggest two SP 120 QE's or Cougar fans on it, that way you can run them at max volts all day without worrying about system noise and still net great performance.

    Well that is probably my bad I think the Phanteks I have actually are 120s matter of fact but Im thinking that it would probaby be sufficent enough! Besides the Kuhler 620 never has been used its still in the box so it needs a home besides the box its in so Ill use it somewhere!
