Fun stuff, maybe you'll get one of the 8320 cherries that run like an 8350. ;p

You mean an 8350 in disguise? thumb.gif i decided to try your voltage idea... i couldn't resist! its that voice in your head just whispering "Overclock..." over and over!
post #3363 of 10171
so i have been playing with the voltages and found that it takes 1.452v to keep this thing ticking. it also saves 4 degrees and about 40 watts. What was i seeing about the VDDA voltage? bumping it up a bit to increase stability

Another reply from the "tech" guy I've been dealing with from ASUS with regards to WIn 8 support for the R1 board:
Quote:
Dear Valued Customer,

Sorry for the trouble.

Win 8 needs both bios and drive support, the bios is a cap file, not the SABERTOOTH 990FX rom file, so we released the R2.0 to conventer to cap file. As this board is released more early than the win 8.

Am I the only one that thinks this guy I'm dealing with hasn't a clue or just couldn't be bothered mad.gif

Of course, you are absolutely correct. redface.gif

It should be 2.69 I think. I'll double check later and edit.

Hi there smile.gif

After a long absence at this forum I have come back wink.gif

First of all, I built my first custom WC rig and I am just very happy about it wink.gif I haven't overclocked my FX-6100 yet, because of AS 5 curing time (I will wait and I just gather all the information I need and then I will start playing with this CPU).

So got some question ATM:
1) Which version of BIOS you find the most overclock friendly wink.gif Asus has recently released a bunch of new BIOSes and I am still sitting on 1208. Is the latest release better for Zambezi chip?

2) I know that default Voltage for FX-6100 ranges from 0.775V - 1.425V Now I run mine (not overclocked) 3300 MHz with C'n'Q off, and S6 (is it the right name?) off at 1.289 V ... How much lower I could set to stay stable and what is the range of voltage for CPU-NB for this chip ? What level should I stay on?

3) I use 1208 BIOS with modded RAID ROM module (version I mean). I have read that in newer BIOSES there is no need to update RAID ROM anymore. Is that true and will my RAID be safe after I update it to 1604 ?

... it's good to be back here. The only place where I feel like I was at home wink.gif and that is a quite positive feeling smile.gif

Just curious does asus tool control each 8320/50 core like it does with a thuban? or does it do only the modules? I used the tool to test oc for each core one at a time to find the slowest & set my OC for all that way. like this: default, default, default, default, default, OC>>default, default, default, default,OC, default>>>>Note to self; next friday order a 8350 if not available a 8320.

My board is a rev 1 bios 1503

Would one of you guys mind checking in Asus Thermal Radar app and posting what your VCORE-1 temps get to during stress testing? smile.gif
