Don't listen to that those chips can handle up to 1.5+ voltage
If you are hitting under or 50 underload you can go higher the wall is 62c
I pretty much gave you the specs of 8350 i used to have that chip sold it i have a 8320 in my daughters unit at 4.6 round the same voltage with a Corsair H75
Notice they state voltage between 1.4-1.55 making sure you have enough cooling. Note also that shut down is AMD's protection when you've reached either the heat, TDP or OCP limit.
We have a few overclocking gurus on this board. I'm not one of them. But notice what solarstarshines is suggesting is in line with the overclocking suggestions for that CPU at Guru3D.
The fun news about the FX series processors is that they will all come unlocked. That means the CPU multiplier is unlocked allowing you to easily gain a little extra performance.
Overclocking wise you could use AMD OverDrive, but a true guru does his magic in the BIOS. With the new Turbo states you could alter the Max core but for ease of use we simply disable the Turbo mode altogether as we want a constant overclock on all eight cores.
We got the processor*running up to 4700 MHz on all eight cores with a liquid cooler (the default AMD kit).
Some generic overclocking guidelines in the BIOS:
Disable Turbo mode
Disable APM Master
Disable thermal states
Set CPU voltage anywhere from 1.4V to 1.55V (make sure you have enough cooling!)
Set DDR memory voltage 0.10V higher for increased stability. E.g. 1.55V would be 1.65V
Increase the base multiplier towards your preference e.g. 200 x a MP of 23 is 4600 MHz
Again, make sure you have cooled your CPU and motherboard well. Don't skimp on cheap thermal paste.
We now incrementally increase the CPU base multiplier and end up at a bus speed of 200 x 23.5 multiplier - 4700 MHz. To achieve this we needed 1.46 Volts on the processor.
At this voltage level in combo with eight cores, the liquid cooler was able to keep the CPU cores low at roughly 50 Degrees C under massive multi-threaded CPU stress (Prime95).
If, during this overclock, your system shuts down, that's a new protection from AMD. You've reached either the heat, TDP or OCP limit (this seems to happen once the CPU pulls more than 26.5A from the 12V CPU rails (8pin and 4pin connectors). If that happens decrease the voltage a bit.
On the ASUS board tested today, when using the “High” setting for load line calibration the board should not reach the current protection limit that easily. Our end result on air thus is 4700 MHz on all eight cores.*
The power draw however is intense as at this stage we consume roughly 356 Watts by stressing all eight CPU cores."
AMD FX 8350 processor review - Introduction
I think its a bit weird how my temps is so low, even if I have 4.5 ghz and a air cooler. (cooler master hyper 212) Im going to try 4.6ghz and see if it works I have a aftermarket thermal paste applied. Does that make any difference?
Also, I do have another little question. When I have my overclock applied, my GHZ never goes down. Its always on 4.5 ghz even if my PC doesnt have any huge load on it. Is this normal? When I have my PC on stock settings, my GHZ always goes down to 1.5 ghz when Im just chilling on youtube and such.
As just a guess, do you have a "Cool n Quiet" setting you can enable in the bios? Check out this thread at Tom's on the subject:
"To overclock you should turn turbo core off, however as long as you have Cool n Quiet enabled when you overclock you will only boost to your overclock when needed. For example launching an internet browser may boost your clock to 4.5Ghz for a couple seconds then it will idle down to somewhere around 1.5Ghz when a lot of processing power isn't needed. When gaming or doing something else CPU intensive it will crank back up to your overclock (4.5Ghz)."
FX-8350 Turbo clock - Overclocking - CPUs
If you want it to be like you first had it with turbo you have to up the turbo to the desired clock speed and change the voltage to offset mode and if you don't know how to work with offset mode you could do some damage
Hyper 212 is a good cooler i had one too it does a good job any overclocks higher than 4.6 may need water
the 1070 will not bottle neck if your CPU is at least 4.8 Ghz but you will need to go water at that point
Do you think I can get 4.7 ghz without liquid? I want to do like specialkonesaid and follow the guide he posted. (1.46V to achieve 4.7GHZ) 4.5 works good so far, so 4.7 might also work. When I use prime 95 with 4.5 ghz my temps goes to max 48. Gonna try testing some more today, and look at temps.
