If Gigabyte were a person I could punch them right now.
So I've been trying to OC my FX-8350 and the method I wanted to use was via FSB but for some reason anything past 210mhz causes BSOD a minute or so after loading to desktop and raising voltages did nothing at all it always BSOD. I've given up FSB for now as I have no clue what to try next, however at 210mhz it's stable so I put it there and used the multiplier, right now I'm at 4.62 GHz @ 1.42V.
If it wasn't bad enough that I was having massive stability issues via FSB I also have to deal with voltage drop MASSIVE voltage drop at load it will go from 1.42 to .9 and then back and forth. Yesterday I spent a good chunk of time going through an owners thread on OCnet and found out my particular board doesn't have the option to disable APM which is what is causing the massive throttling. It seems to be just for us FX users though as apparently enabling HPC fixes the throttling for other CPUs. Another user also posted an email from Gigabyte saying a BIOS update with the feature should be released in a week or so and I really hope it is. Overall the BIOS is really weak it's missing a lot and there are a few important settings that can't be changed statically which really blows I dislike offsets it doesn't allow us to be precise which makes fine tuning sorta impossible.
If you have any suggestions that could help with my FSB issue feel free to post and I'll give it a shot.
