Overclocking 200MHz on 4+1 Phase board (FX 8100 + Gigabyte 970A-D3P)

I disabled turbo so my PC runs 3GHz solid. I'm running Prime now for the next hour to make sure it's stable. Did not up the voltage, and she's liquid smooth. That being said, CPU temps are below 55C at 100% load and idk the VRM Headsink's temp, but it wasn't even warm when I checked it before the benchmark. I'll try after to make sure tho (Worth noting that the black boxes next to vrm heatsink which name slips me rn for some reason is pretty damn hot, even w/o ocing, but sincce I didn't touch voltage I doubt it'll be an issue)

Edit --> Temp stays at 51C and doesn't go higher, 1 hr of stress proves no instabilities. Am I good?

  1. Notes: My PC, when I tried turning it on later that night, turned on for 3-5 seconds then shut off, then after 5 seconds started up again. I took this as a sign that it is not good to keep the clock.

  2. Not a good idea to overclock on those boards imo. I think those boards are best for an average user who will not ever overclock and just needs a working plug and play system.

    You're fine at 3ghz on that board.
    You could honestly probably go a fair bit higher

    The double boot is a gigabyte thing when you disable turbo core (its down to the dual bios)
    Its an annoyance , my ud3p does exactly the same

    If you re-enable turbo core & set the turbo speed to the same as your 3ghz clock speed it will atop doing it.

    It SEEMED stable, but when I tried turning on the PC the next morning, it was on for 10 seconds then shut off, then turned back on again. I took it as a sign it was bad.
