Issues Overclock Fx-8320

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I had this CPU running at 4.X GHz for so long and something happened and I can't Overclock it anymore.

 

Specs: Fx-8320 M5A99X Evo R1.0 16GB Ram Corsair RM-750 Evga GTX 1080 Hybrid

 

Every time I try to overclock, even by 200-300MHz, after reboot my MOBO says press enter to recover settings. I have tried to reflash the BIOS, but it simply locks up the second I try to do it. Is there any chance the CMOS battery is dying and causing some disruption?

 

The ONLY change i can possibly remember was I had issues the H100i and the NZXT fan controller giving me CPU fan errors, but I have since fixed it.

It could be the chip itself degrading, hence not able to hold it's clock speed anymore. This isn't the first time I have heard of it.

 

Does pushing more voltage help?

Iv seen batteries die after 3 years but 5 years is normal.

I am running the same CPU in my system at 4.3 GHz and had a similar issue about a year ago. In my case the issue would only occur if I was moving the computer and had it unplugged for any length of time. Everything returned to normal after replacing the CMOS battery so I feel like that is a good place to start.

Let me know how it works out. Sometimes these FX chips can be a bit.... troublesome.
