    Default AMD FX series 8-core 5GHz overlcock problems ???

    Hello all, its officially been one year since i built my new gaming rig, i have an AMD FX 8370 which is an 8 core processor.
    I have a ASUS 970 Pro Gaming/Aura main board, and i have a question, more of a call for help, instead of just a?Q? (?Question?)

    Not sure but where the source came from but it was on another overclock bulletin board, but asked help about the motherboard,
    Because i had purchased a 220W TP CPU it was the dreaded hot processor from hell that's stock @ 4.7GHz i believe and figured
    it was going to be simple just to OC to 5GHz, but after learning i never returned the Processor, and just kept it just in case i ever
    need to upgrade a AM3+ board that supports the 9590. And went with a 125W Processor which is the 8370 at stock 4.2GHz to 4.3GHz
    I didn't mess with anything but The Multiplier to 20.1 and the only thing i changed, and smart enough not to screw with the voltage.
    a guy told me i can keep the board i already have, and just get the one i have now and utilizing by default.

    He said i shouldn't have to worry and down right knew, i could get the chip to 5000/5045 MHz without a problem
    and then i was worried free because i just upgraded my AIO to an Kraken X62 with 2 Noctua Industry 3000rpm fans
    and before i did anything, did a little test to 4087MHz and was some sluggish and slight freeze, not much.
    but So i brought it up to 40820MHz restarted the system from UEFI/BIOS system booted, but time it went launch
    windows 10, had a nasty bluescreen. and shocked because how powerful my AIO was with cooling, around 77F to 86F
    when i am using a web browser or youtube, and games like GTA V & DOOM ('15' or '16)and was massively cranked up
    to the heighest graphical settings pushing the system, and hottest ever gotten was 104F. with my notcua industrial fan
    speed to only 70-80% and gotten numbers around those temps, sure beat the hell out of my x52 , that i use for my GPU
    now. Am i doing something wrong here? I have latest BIOS just to add to that. Could this be from not changing the CPU Bus, HT
    or anything like that? Also had power saving options off wanted to squeeze every little extra drop of performance out of my 8370
    AMD MSI R9 390 8GB GPU, because i cannot afford a new DDR4 board or Threadripper based boards. This thing would drop down to 47F
    while idle with disabled overclock. What could have gone wrong In the process?? My Specifications below

    Case: Corsair Graphite 780T [White/Black]

    Are you using BIOS version 401?

    AMD FX 8370 is not a 220W CPU, it's 125W, but you need the 401 BIOS to make it work properly.
