It's very poor motherboard, can't supply enough power.I'm trying to overclock my fx 8350 because I can't run Escape From Tarkov. I've got it to 4.6ghz with 1.4vcore but it's not helping performance at all so idk what the issue is.
GPU: Gtx 1060 6gb
RAM: 16gb DDR3
I agree with this, try taking off all overclocking. You could easily be making performance worse by overheating the motherboard VRM’s and causing the cpu to throttle.Your specs are very similar to mine, and while it is indeed a board with poor power ability, you should be able to run the game at stock speeds pretty well.
I would say overclocking it could be causing the cpu to throttle or perhapse you're having a driver issue with the game.
I play skyrim SE heavily modded on ultra with an average of about 55 fps.I just don't understand why it's so slow compared to how it used to be. Alot of games I used to be able to run on medium settings now barely run on low. I will turn the oc off but would it be worth just buying a new cpu and motherboard?
Negative.The socket on these boards is rated for a max of 125 watts, so overclocking the chip exceeds those limits as well, again back to poor power phasing.
Did you not read my other posts? I specified I did basically that exact same thing due to the boards power issues. Mine doesn't seem to have any issue running the 125w chip, just don't let it turbo. Same with my gpu. The ONLY reason I haven't upgraded mobos in 10 years is because the POS one I bought with my fx4300 back in the day still works. And it's been overloaded for 3 years now.Negative.
That motherboard may be advertised to handle the 125w parts, but their design does not reflect this.
A weak 4+1 phase mobo will be short-lived running with a 125w part. At best, users shouldn't be running more than the 95w FX-6xxx series in them.
It's why people who made such poor pairings were forced to downclock and undervolt those cpus; a stock FX-8350 will still burn out that motherboard.
It should be run in a 6+2 phase board or higher.
