Rated 5 out of 5 by from As with all of AMD’s FX chips the FX-8350 possesses an unlocked CPU multiplier, allowing for straight forward overclocking. The FX-8350 requires only to increase the core voltage from its default of 1.4V to 1.5V. Also disable the usual array of c-states and AMD’s Cool’n’Quiet, and increased load line calibration to its ‘Ultra’ setting. Following these fairly minor adjustments, we were able to reach a core frequency of 4.8GHz (24 x 200) in an overclocking process that rivals the ease of Intel’s Ivy Bridge CPUs. However, any further increases to the core frequency, regardless of core voltage, led to core failures. 4.8GHz looked to be the limit with consumer cooling.

will this work with my FOXCONN A76ML-K 30 (Socket AM3)

Asked by: Callum
NO. You cannot put an AM3+ processor into a AM3 socket AM3+ chips have an extra pin when compared to AM3. You can put an AM3 processor in an AM3+ socket, but not the other way around.

I was thinking of replacing my old AMD for the AMD FX-9590 4.7GHz but I've not got water cooling and people say it gets hot and water cooling is necessary. Is it Truth ?  Is it going to be the same for this processor ? Could i run without cooling  ?

Asked by: Kamil
No you can't run the item with out cooling, but water cooling is not necessary as stock clock speeds.
