There are plenty of cheaper boards, but at the time I wasn't sure how long I would be doing this bitcoin mining thing. Also, this was back prior to the bulldozer release. So I built the rig on a nice sabertooth 990fx board, thinking that when I got tired of bitcoin mining I could upgrade to a super fast bulldozer CPU and use it as my new workstation.

Bulldozer release performance was disappointing and the bitcoin mining thing is still profitable, so that idea never did work out as originally planned.

Still, I think that day will occur someday, and it'll be nice to have at least some upgrade options, as opposed to the dirt cheap bitcoin mining boards.

post #2046 of 10135
hey guys, i have a question that's been asked in some way or another by different people but being fairly novice at overclocking/tweaking BIOS settings for speeds and voltage changes, i can use some guidance.

i have 2 4GB sticks of G.Skill sniper DRAM that are 1866 pc14900 - and i changed the one setting in the BIOS that was at 1600 for the DRAM speed, along with manually changing the timings to the published times in the manual (9, 10, 9, 28). The memory voltage per the manual is 1.5v and that's what it's running at. But after booting when i run CPU-Z, it still shows my memory at 800mhz core- i.e. 1600. The timings show as i changed them (they used to be 10,11,10,29)

i'm not trying to overclock my cpu (it's the FX-8120), i just want the darned memory to run at the speed it's supposed to. but not too sure what to do. I'm not too opposed to overclocking, but i don't need to do anything crazy, as i only have a 500watt p/s and stock cooling (which has been fine - 43c is the worst i've seen).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Still having cold boot issues frown.gif Cold boot > Overclock Failed.Tested system with 40-50 run of LinX,24 hours of prime blend,and 10 or so runs of 3dmark 11 no errors.Played multiple games for hours no lock ups or bluescreens..So im assuming its stable.Im wondering could PSU be the cause of this?Thanks
