    fx 8320 fresh build freezes


      Fresh fx 8320 build freezes.  GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 R5 mobo. 1000w EVGA supply. 16gig Hyper X Fury. 2 tb hd. Gigabyte FX480 G1 gaming VPU.

      Actually built 2 identical systems. First one loaded win10 pro. Freezes. So built second machine, freezes the same way.

      I've disabled all the c settings. and manually set vcore to 1.375v. It's gotten better, the machines will run 30 minutes or so on a game and then hard freeze. They pass benchmakrs with flying colors, but will not make it through 15 minutes of real bench stress test. Always the hard lockup, black or blue or tan screen. Anybody have any suggestions? Oh, and cpu temps have not exceeded 50c
