OVERCLOCKING HELP

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys n girls 

 

Could you advise which settings i would want to play with for overclocking my 8086k? Running on an Asus Tuf Z370 Gaming Plus

 

ALL i have ever played with is cranking it to 5.3ghz and increasing the core voltage to 1.425

 

I still get random crashes/restarts even when only running it at 5.1ghz and 1.325

 

What else can i play with here to overclock it to it's full potential?

 

Current best Cinebench R20 score 4008cb @ 5.3ghz and 1.425

You're going to have to up the voltage at 5.1GHz to get it stable, 1.325 isn't that much.  I run that at 5.0GHz and it's rock solid, so try 1.35 or 1.36 for 5.1.

 

Nice Cinebench, I guess.  Is that what you're OC-ing for?   Benchmark numbers?

Trying to reach full potential on a crappy board, bestest logic. 

 

More voltage for 5.1GHz, strong fan for VRM cooling.

lol yes it was the first part in collecting for an upgrade from AMD fx-6350

 

graphics is still the old 390x 8gb im afraid 

 

What board would you suggest?

i either have it at 1.325 or 1.425 @ 5.3ghz but does not like a heavy windows load if you've got alot going on and crashes  - i guess i should just be happy with 5.0ghz

Well you really don't have it at either, since neither is stable.  You can't try 5.1 at higher than 1.325 and get stable?

Depends on budget, feature set and form factor requirements

so there's no voltage between 1.325 and 1.425?
