I did it. Couldn't help myself.
I have the 8350 running at 4.5GHz with a H80i on quiet, bumped the core voltage up to 1.380 and it's running nicely.

What temps do you get on full load with your hyper 212?
I am getting up to 53 celcius after an hour of prime. The H80i seems less effective than I thought.

So far i thought i was doing 4.6 .... but it seems like anything over 4.4 i get lockups at odd times like accessing the net thru another browser window?

Im honestly at a point in time that I am not shure if i had a dud for oc'ing chip or if maybe its a motherboard limitation or something else at this point in time ..

How about a fresh and barebone windows install without flash and the such to eliminate any 3rd party fuckery?
Adobe Flash used to give me some nice lock ups.

terrybear, I might have missed it, but looking over your past relevant posts (to this issues), I have not seen you listing your mobo's BIOS version. At the moment the revision is at 1604 (for the ASUS M5A99X Evo - ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS M5A99X EVO), I would highly recommend for your to flash your BIOS and other relevant mobo subsystems (Audio, Chipset, LAN) for a good measure. In my experience, my M5A99X Evo did become more stable during the occasional OC, even though I don't push mine into the extremes plus I am still running a 1090T.

I am running the 1604 bios yes ....

I have so far figured out the locking up was occuring cause of as you mentioned sa, flash ... i re-downloaded & installed the latest one & the issue of lockups has been resolved.

Currently 4.5 ghz 22.5x multi @ 1.4v's (fluxuates around 1.39v) ...... Heats never the issue, never seen it in game testing or "catzilla" go over 42c ..

Default Update

So, after deciding to tweak the load line settings from auto/100% to 110% Im now stabilily @ 4.6 ghz @ 1.4v (varies 1.38-1.392 in cpu id).

Will try pushin it higher in awhile ... but happy with it at its current clocks.
