The specs are different for the AMD set of indigo extreme! The spec sheet is written for the Intel one trust me the AMD one reflows at 55~61 and it is weird but no harm will come to the chip during the set up promise!!! I have done it a few times and it does work much better than all TIM's

I did get some good scores with this clock but it was not 100% stable and it really was HOT HOT HOT

Wanted to add a few benchmarks of FPS with BD, all the settings are maxed out plus I get great fps in BF3!!! I wish they had a bench for that game
Wish they did too! would be a good one. I went through the same thing when overclocking the FX. It likes things the phenom II didnt like and other way around too

DAM!!! Are those sig specs 24/7? nice clock on that 1100T if so!

I have had to learn OC'ing all over again, just like the switch from Intel to AMD! At first I just popped out the 970BE and in went the FX and it was easy as pie.

BUTTTT 3 or so days later (lol always takes that long and I have no idea why?) The instability crap in the OS started! Just like if I swapped boards (which I still find funny that most think you don't need to do a fresh install for that) but I have tried it many times lol!

I did the fresh install and from there I got nightmare after nightmare! 8 fresh installs later, I figured out a few things and got me a stable system at a good clock with low volts. But with a better bios and as I said earlier Indigo Extreme and some Lapping I think I can get my target I wanted in the first place which was 5.3ghz!

At 5ghz I was killing the 2600k even when I clocked higher than the FX chip, there were benches that the 2600K beat it at but by very little, and as far a gaming which is my thing it is KING of the heap even at sig clocks! I hope to get the temps down under load as it would be the Intel killer as they promised it would be! (as far as Sandy Bridge goes)

I think that 5.3 would even give the 990X a run for its money but I doubt ever beat it! That 990X OC'ed is one bad chip, I know the Sandy guys say the 2600K can beat it but I really don't see it! Price wise hell yeah, but oc'ed vs oc'ed um the 990X scores in benches what some twin xeon's score and, with the way windows 8 is looking AMD is on the right track with multi threading as windows 8 is all multi threaded not one single threaded app

BTW sorry for double post here but I have said about the BIOS being crap about 20 times if anyone knows where I can get a updated bios let me know ASAP I have 402,705,810beta so don't tell me about any of those just new ones that maybe have not hit the ASUS site as I seen when the 705 came out some knew about it before it even hit ASUS's site

WARNING: Problem on setup: out of the box, the BIOS version is 0420 which does not support the new Bulldozer FX-8150. So I was lucky to "borrow" a friends earlier AMD CPU socket AM3 and boot up my system inorder to flash the BIOS. I d/l the 0810 beta version from ASUS as I was concerned the 0705 might not pick up the new bulldozer series.

So up and running to test. The BIOS is cool. I'm getting a Kingston SSD tomorrow and will install Win764 and see how quick it loads etc.

Is it weird that I want to name "her"?

You need to have a CPU-Z validation BTW just adding your post to the validation is not proof

ALL OTHERS I UPDATED IF EVERYTHING WAS RIGHT AND LEFT NOTES ON ONES THAT AREN'T
