Lets see if I can get through this without screwing this up.
I am trying to o.c. my gaming rig. Yes I have read the how to’s and watched the video’s, yes I know the risks. I almost know what I am doing and want to make sure more practiced eyes aren’t seeing something I am not.
Hardware specs are:
Asus 970 Pro Gaming / aura
Fx 6350
Msi raedon r9 270x gpu
2Gx4 sticks ddr 3 1333 more on that at the end
500gb hdd
Win 8.1
Evo hyper 212 w/ 1 push fan
BIOS and drivers updated yesterday, literally.
My 8750 cpu was a giant p.o.s. in terms of trying to get anything more than 200 mhz which is how I recently came to my 6350. After a few weeks of painfully slow computer @ 3.9Ghz I got the itch to try to o.c. one more time before going back to a horse and abacus.

For testing, I used Prime 95 small torture test for 30 minute run with fans on hi.
Stock settings open case
39C load

Then I made this change and started testing

Ddr3 1600
Cpu ratio = 19.5
Vcore max = 1.4
cpu manual voltage =auto @ 1.380V
39c load
41.3c max

Multiplier +.5 to 20. 4013 mhz idle
Vcore = 1.404 @ idle
Idle temp +2 c to 16
Vcore 1.356 load
42.6c max
1.404v

Multiplier +.5 to 20.5
4113mhz
17c idle
41c load
42.4c max

Taskbar had trouble loading
Multiplier +.5 to 21
19c idle
4214 mhz
42c load
44.3c max
Everything pretty much went along fine until I noticed a jump in hwinfo reported vcore voltage

It might be hard to see but vcore current volyage went from 1.356 to 1.392 to 1.404v with a multiplier raise of .5 from 20.5 to 21 and again to 21.5 These screen shots are at the end of the test for some kind of consistency.

Multiplier +.5 to 21.5
4314mhz
29c idle Big jump here in idle temp, 10 c?
Vcore max 1.44
1.404v load
Max 49.4c
So that made me curious what my cpu man voltage was doing. I set it from offset to manual previously but left everything on auto.

Bios shows 1.428 on cpu man volt still set on auto
Multiplier +.5 to 22
4414 mhz
21 /33c idle I was not having wild fluctuations here, the temp dropped that much in a few seconds, then went up and down by a few degrees instead of staying more relatively stable
No crash after 30 minutes 47c max load - stats aborted accidently.

Multiplier +5 to 22.5
26-36c idle
4514mhz
48c load
50.4cmax

When I set the multiplier to 23 and stressed it, she crashed instantly. Now for the question part…Do I need a vcore of 1.428 to run @4.4 Ghz or am I missing something? If I go into Bios and take CPU manual voltage off of auto and put it to 1.428 is that the vcore that hwinfo is reporting? Or do I need to set it to the Max voltage reported for that stress test of 1.440+? I know there is a voltage spike at start up or something, or is at the start of the stress test?

Now for the part you have been waiting for, the memory bit alluded to in the beginning.
I have 4Gx2 sticks ddr3 2200, ready to overclock, HyperXsavage. Once I get my o.c. set, if I stick in this memory and take the 1333 out is that going to screw me up?
The only reason I am using the 1333 to begin with is because my MOBO is dual channel and both channels are the same color. Meaning IDK which is channel one and which is two. Didn’t want to have memory in the wrong slot trying to o.c. shit.
As info, I only recorded changes. If you want to, you can assume voltages stayed the same unless noted. Then they stayed at that same level until renotated

TIA!!

Unless you change FSB/BCLK , processor overclock will not be affected. Proper RAM stick placement you can find in MB's manual, according to it RAM should be in A2 and B2 slots.
You may have to redo your CPU OC because you will probably have to reset CMOS to properly recognize new RAM.
Now when you found your OC limit for CPU, it's advisable to test limits of RAM without CPU overclock and than apply both of them together.

I want to see how high of a clock I can get under 65c max load. I wouldn't keep it that high but if I can "safely" run under the thermal limit of 70c, why wouldn't I? I think I can reach higher multiplier numbers by adjusting the cpu voltage and want to know which reported voltage to start with.
