Hi guys.
So i installed my new cpu, 8350. Took a benchmark test, it only scored 6.6k score... Even with 4,4 GHz OC. I looked others score, and see they scored 7-8 without OC.. What is likely the problem? :s

default is 1.42... it's too high. so i resetted all settings and reduced to 1.37 instead. don't know why my volts are so high default.

These are my scores without any overclock at all on GPU or CPU.

you might have gotten a lower score before if you over clock was unstable or cpu was overheating.
might be worth keeping an eye on what temps your are gettings.

the cooler master hyper212 evo as far as i'm concerned is not up to keeping an 8 core cpu cool under full load or when over clocked.

so my guess is it's all about things maybe getting to hot. that assuming you don't have virus scans running in background, updates, etc and your bios, drivers and windows are all up to date :)

Um about the only thing I could think is maybe your power supply isnt quite up to the task?
I know the 8350 takes a TON of wattage when overclocked as in over 300 watts if I remember right; and I know that 7950 isn't light on the wattage either as in its probably pushing 250-300 under load.


Try manually overclocking back to where you had it. For testing purposes you probably want to disable cool and quiet and check your power settings in windows to make sure nothing is throttling you.
Shouldn't take much voltage to hit 4.4, maybe 1.4 at the most?
Also double check to make sure you don't have any power saving utilities installed and nothing installed alongside the motherboard drivers that would be holding you back. Also make sure you have turbo disabled for your overclock. You want it at a constant 4.4ghz.
