Yeah but to get the 4ghz all I did was change the multiplier (stock voltage). Mine also came outta the box @ 3.4ghz not 3.1ghz.

well cpu-z they all say 8130p even the 50 does that will get fixed on the next release of cpu-z but that is funny how they clocked your 8120 to the 8140 specs when it has not even been released, I also can't belive they are not going to have the 8150 in stock till December and the second gen will be out by Feb. lol how is that going to work for sales lol! I have waited almost a year for this and now two more months till in stock again this is nuts

Ah didn't know that about the CPU-Z thing. it is odd though how mine was clocked 3.4ghz. I did check everything to make sure I wasn't crazy.

Question for everyone for temps. Should I go by what the board says for cpu temps or what the cores say they are running at? ex: under full load (prime 95) the cores say they are at 54*c and the board says the cpu is 64*c.

Go by the actual core temp NBrock. ALUCARDVPR has a great guide about it here

Well I got a FX-8150 and it will be here tomorrow before 3pm est and I will be installing it asap lol, so I will post sceenies of benchmarks which has been like pulling teeth to get some to do

I also will have benchmark scores of my current cpu and sig speeds to compare with and in the bulldozer owners thread I offered to clock my cpu to lower spec along with all other settings to give anyone that would like a example of what there system would do if upgraded.

I don't understand why no one else was offering this I think that these forums only work if we help one another! So my offer stands in this thread even more as we all have the 990fx sabertooth so the out come will be more alike

Okay, I got my replacement Sabertooth and I am now running at 4.8GHz with my FX 8120 with a cheap air cooler. First try overclock and it is stable. However, I keep having a certain issue with my RAM. In my previous 870G motherboard my 16GB kit of 1600Mhz RAM would report as 16GB in BIOS and Windows, yet it is being reported as 12GB with the sabertooth. What is odd is that there is an issue with the seating, the BIOS and Speccy (Speccy even says I have 16GB total RAM) state that I have four 4GB chips installed, yet only 12GB of it is usable. Any ideas?
