Got the 8320, installed, booted, was working ok on my AsRock 890GX Pro3 until I cranked Boinc on all cores and GPU and it had a pretty fast shutdown. Don't know yet if it was thermal or something else. But at least the CPU works in the 890 board!!!
EDIT: Looks like I was overclocked out of the gate at 3.7Ghz, don't quite know why. Downclocked to normal 3.5Ghz w/ stock fan. Running stress test, all cores pegged, with AMD Overdrive utility and it seems stable now at 49 degrees C without the fan sounding like a jet engine.
Uhhhh yeah, I think it's my PSU. Might have finally caught up to me. Did 20 minutes with all 8 cores pegged, perfect, very acceptable temps, etc. Did Boinc again with GPU and all 8 cores and after about 2 minutes... bam, shut off again.
