WHEN YOU MAKE THE VALIDATION, HAVE PRIME95 OR SOME CPU INTENSIVE PROGRAM OPEN SO YOU DON'T GET THE ~800 MHz SPEED, THOSE THAT DO NOT, WILL HAVE A SHAMEFUL LOW CORE SPEED IN THE LIST! PM ME WITH NEW VALIDATION LINK IF YOU CHANGE YOUR SPEED.
No matter what I do I just can't get my A4-3400 to register anything more than stock in CPU-Z or [OCCT recognised the clocks, apparently] (Windows' Performance Index thing recognised the clocks) and the one time I did (see below) it didn't really give the correct FSB value..
I'll look when I get home but it was the latest download as of yesterday.
Can I ask, what drivers you guys using? The ones from motherboard website or the latest from amd?
Asrocks latest are dated 10/5. Its like 35mb. Amds are like 135mb. Is the extra weight just all the video transcoding stuff?
I'm sure there will be some bugs to work out. Asrock Is still on first bios. But I hope to get most of the bugs ironed out in a week or two as I want this system under my TV soon! My current HTPC motherboard is on the fritz.
I'm grabbing an A6-5600K on Friday so if anyone want any sort of benchmarks, let me know. I'll be adding a 7870/660ti around christmas. Was going to grab an i3 3220, but this seems like it'll be more fun to screw around with.
