I don't know why you're getting the results you're getting. At the end of the day it's just a benchmark. Cinebench Says 4C/8T for 8350's... so what. It is an 8 core CPU although some people will still argue about that. All that matters is that you're satisfied with the performance you're getting for the $$$ you paid, Intel or AMD.

I ran Cinebench R15 with 4 Cores using two modules (two cores per module) and 4 cores using 4 modules (one core per module, this should really show the bottleneck). The results speak for themselves about weather a bottleneck exists...


374 points: 4 Cores 2 Modules (2 cores per module)


438 points: 4 Cores 4 Modules (1 core per module, no bottleneck)



At the end of the day that's an 17.11% increase so technically an 8350 using 4 modules with 1 core in each disabled is faster than say an FX-4350 because it is using two modules with two cores in each. Obviously an FX-4350 is significantly cheaper.

Well worth the 99 bucks.

I of course haven't got around to messing with ocing yet.

***Even my HDD feels much more responsive. I'm assuming this is because it's no longer suffering the load of the OS.

***Got the speakers worked out. What I'd call rear speakers, are considered side speakers in the program. Pain in the butt.

Your 970 had VIA audio chipset right and the UD5 is Realtek? Thought most people say the Realtek is better than VIA thinking.gif

I'm getting throttled to **** btw.

Fast.

I'm calling BS on this CPU.

I even went as far as to put a fan directly on my VRM.

Well something is obviously... wrong. Is the UD5 Rev. 1 or Rev 3? When does it throttle? At a certain core temp or a mobo sensor temp? Or does it throttle only at certain clocks? What happens if you leave the CPU at stock clock and raise the voltage? Like say 1.45 vcore at 4 Ghz.

Cool&Quiet, C1E, Core C6 State, Core Performance Boost, and HPC Mode all disabled? If you're on a Rev 3 board I can only make the assumption that the UEFI BIOS just plain sucks... The older non UEFI boards seem superior.

It's a Rev 3.

I tried what you mentioned, but left it at 3.5. The voltage kept dropping. I'm going to adjust LLC some.

I set LLC to high.

Right now, it keeps jumping between 1.500 V, and 1.380 V.

It started throttling right away. my current CPU temp is 58c.

Really at a loss... That's a fine temp for CPU. I've taken my 8320's core over 70C for very short periods of time. Never had any throttling ever.

Do you think the CPU could just be defective?

I mean, this has been 2 boards. Both of which give me the same issue, this one worse right now.

I don't think a defective CPU can cause throttling... My bet is on that UEFI bios. Both your boards have the AMI EFI BIOS while the older revisions are the good ole AWARD bios.

Do you have any other CPU's to test? I do need to sell my Rev 1.1 970A-UD3, want to buy it lol?
