you do know that you need to flash this board with a chip other than BD to get that 8120 to even post! the board will not work with out the new BD bios with that 8120 this is confirmed

Funny because I thought with the "AM3+" it should work right away?

But thanks for the heads up though. I am still with my Phenom II x2 though.

I'm sorry to say the Athlon x2 7750BE wont work on any board with DDR3 ram because it doesn't have a ddr3 memory controller.The only Athlon cpu's that will work are the ones that only have 3 numbers in their title.

Ah, I think I did this incorrectly the first time.

ADD ME (please)

This was before the overclock, but the MB is verified:

(Also, this must be a stupid question, but can anyone tell me how to embed images in a post? Every time I paste the link into the Insert Image box nothing at all shows up in the post...)

For anyone who was interested in the BIOS issue I was having that my original post talked about, here's an update:

By spamming enter I was able to navigate down to Memory Frequency and some PCIe setting and while they appeared to be set to "Auto", when they were selected they would show some outlandish readings. With enough spamming I was able to set them back at normal levels and I can now use my AI Tweaker tab and the rest of the BIOS with no problem!biggrin.gif

Back to OC'ing now hovering just below 4.2 GHz but having some stability issues. Aida 64 blue screens after a couple of hours.

Can anyone explain how to raise the CPU voltage in these BIOS? I know there's Manual and Offset modes, but I don't understand well either of them. Which should I be using?confused.gif

I've also read conflicting reports about leaving Spread Spectrum on or turning it off. What have you guys had success with?

sorry for the late response, I use only manual volt setting I hate the off set one just me maybe! I also would say to turn off spread spec on everything that says it! I have never got any luck pushing past 1ghz overclock with it on

Plus dont use the AI suite to overclock do it in bios the AI suite kinda well sucks IMHO

yes that is the case you need to have the bios flashed to bulldozer bios for anyone of them to work it seems so you mite not have a DOA just the bios problem

EDIT: to bad you live so far I would just loan you my chip to flash it, you mite want to ether find a local PC shop if you have any or a friend with a AM3 chip just to flash it even buying a cheap chip mite work I have seen some chips in the 30usd range, this happened with the P II x6's as well when they first came out

Please advise, people with experience overclocking DDR3 1600 memory

Anyone have a similar setup with Asus Sabertooth 990FX, AMD Phenom II x6 1100T, Mushkin Enhanced DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) 2x4G?

I need advice on overclocking this setup, I'm sure this beast could handle 4+ Ghz...

Thanks,

-serper
