You had made a strange decision.8 cores @4700 looks more interesting (for me)
And your CPU temperature reading may be wrong, when you lock/unlock cores

As far as i remembr for am3+ platforms voltages:
CPU vcore = VDD
CPU module/clock = VDDA
CPU cache = CPU/NB
NB = MOBO NB
VDDA gives you more stability when OC system by BCLK. But for 24/7 operation you can't run those voltages as they are near limit for FX8350. What i mean is you wont have a safety gap if something goes above expected, wich can lead to a dead CPU.
How did you achieved the 5ghz? Did you overclocked only by multiplyer or also by BCLK?
I personally dont like to OC my systems with BCLK until i know perfectly the system capability, wich means i start to OC by multiplayer each component, like
1- CPU mult +vcore
2- cpu cache +cpu/nb voltg
3- cpu mult+ cpu cache + vdda
And only when i know my parts max OC i then revert some parts to stock multiplyer and rise BCLK.
If you OC by BCLK you will OC your entire system at the same time: CPU, all of HTT, CPU/NB, RAM, etc and when you got instability its almost impossible to find were it comes from.
No. Bclk not stable for me. I used only cpu multipler.
I see that micro lags cease to be when I use additional power for cpu/bn. But I can seen temperature increases too. Periodically I will be get micro freezes and lags in my OS If I tried to lower my cpu/nb voltages. This is root of my question. Other looks best, This power on vCore and VDDa is not disturb me even when I use linx.
