Welp I'm glad that my Charlie Brown luck still continues with this board This morning I decided to try the 'easy mode' way of overclocking by taking advantage of the 'easy mode' option in the bios. Selected 'performance', clicked save/reset and sure enough the box just sat there. No post. So after pwring down/restarting I held the Memory OK button and was able to get into the bios. Funny thing is that while looking in the bios, my options like cpu fan and case fan where still disabled. After saving/restarting the system showed 3.7GHz and was able to boot into windows, but I didn't have time to load Prime95. So now I'm wondering if its normal for this to happen or RMA this board and go back to my M4......

NP Devil Driver.

It's actually been fun, because for a while I was stuck at 4700 because of voltage issues when I went to extreme, it just was overvolting, then getting to hot.

If you go extreme, and say put a 1.38-1.4 voltage and spread it by 130% I got mine stable that way. for 4700Mhz, but for 4800+ Ive had to rethinkink it, because it wouldn't post before I changed the FSB and the ultra high settings etc.

But I have an H80 cooler which has been perfect with my Coolermaster HAF Case My Max temp under Intel Burn test is 61C But its 100% Stable. smile.gif My benchmarks are awesome.

As I said though, by actually putting it on "Ultra High instead of Extreme, it drops the voltages a bit under full load, helping keeps temps down, but I keep the range extreme, just in case it needs it. Under CPU-Z it will go from 1.464-1.488

If you just hold the power button down until it shuts off, then put it back on, it will reboot with failsafe defaults, and say "Overclocking Failed! Press F1 to enter setup" Instead of having to take off your case, or leave it off.

um I hope for your sake you know that AMD max temp (max) is 62c~65c depending on the chip so 61c is not good no matter what your scores are!!!! I would give yourself a little head room like max temps at least
56c~58c! AMD does not climb as quick as Intel on temps but is still very shaky to push it to the limit like that

PS the rest of the OC is about perfect though, I also told you guys about a week ago that dropping the VDDA volts is the bios helps to auto sets it at 2.5 where as it seems that it is wrong as I am stable with lower temps
with it set at 2.4 so far! My phenom used to like it at 2.7~2.8 but the FX chip has proven the other way lol

from what I have seen offical from AMD is FX-8XXX is 61* so yea thats pushing it. Luckly in my case the FX-6100 and 4100 are 71* so I've got a little room to play around still. IBT I only get mid 50's.
I've got 4.8Ghz so close. I can run cinebench 11.5, geekbench, and 3dmarl11 all at the same time with out crashing, but prime95 give's me warnings on a couple cores.

And Bradford1040 one of the things I'm working with is lowering that VDDA volts. think I've got it around 2.45.

Intel Burn test pushes it harder then Prime 95 does, so if its stable, and says its stable its fine.

Prime 95 barely heats this thing beyond 50

for me its exactly the opposite, IBT doesnt stress hard enough.prime95 will get 10* hotter than IBT easy.

well thats the first I heard of that, but if you know it to be true then go for it smile.gif I just did not want you to fry your chip up in a month or two,
But I would double check that temp as the 6100 is justa 8150 with two cores or one mod cut off why would the TDP be different?

Just in case u guys hadn't seen this.......
Quote:
Still trying to cope with the disappointment of AMD's latest CPU architecture? A new hotfix from Microsoft might dull the pain. The software giant admits that its operating systems are hindering Bulldozer's performance and has released an update for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 users that should improve the situation. Current versions of Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 are inefficient at handling Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT). Naturally, this update introduces the necessary optimizations.

The support page repeatedly notes that the hotfix will allow Bulldozer chips to unleash their full potential, but there's no indication on how much more performance you'll see. We wouldn't get too excited about it though. Windows 8 is more efficient at handling SMT scheduling and based on reports we've seen, Bulldozer performs about 10% quicker in the Windows 8 Developer Preview. Although we haven't run any tests yet (and there's probably no reason to), users are reporting a situational 1% to 10% boost.

I found the amd spec sheet a wile back but having a hard time finding it again, but there is a site that has all cpu spec's listed

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Bulldozer/AMD-FX-Series%20FX-6100.html
http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Bulldozer/AMD-FX-Series%20FX-8120.html

I did remember incorrectly thought. 6100/4100 are 70*. I'm not sure why they have a higher max temp than the 8 series.
