Have you tried a different GPU card for comparison purposes? Maybe there is an issue with the card running that particular bench if none of the drivers improve the score? You don't need the same GPU card, just one you can use for comparison to a similar set-up listed at 3DMark.

yea ive had a few people with similar comfigs with similar clocks etc and they consistently scored on average 12-15fps

theres a new 7950 turning up here today, and i got some 2133mhz ram arriving so ill be testing that out.

You can throw all that "old stuff" away and get yourself a new 5.0 GHz. FX-9000 CPU that runs at 4.8 GHz. base and 5.0 GHz. in Turbo mode. THAT's all you need to get good benchmark scores! wink.gif

"Mid-April, we learned that AMD was working on its next "TWKR" chip for overclockers, based on the existing "Vishera" silicon. It turns out it is, and scrapes 5.00 GHz frequency at some unreal TDP levels for a client processor. SweClockers reports that AMD is working on at least two new socket AM3+ FX-series processors to make it competitive against Intel's 4th generation Core series. Among these are the FX-9000, and the FX-8770. The FX-9000 leads the pack with 4.80 GHz out of the box clock speed, and a TurboCore frequency of 5.00 GHz. Clock speeds of the FX-8770, on the other hand, haven't been disclosed. A catch here is the TDP of these chips. Two hundred and twenty Watts! The jump from 3.80 GHz to 4.80 nearly doubled TDP from 125W to 220W. Prices of the two remain under the wraps. AMD plans to unveil the two at E3, sometime between 11th and 13th June..."

don't you mean you can throw all that money away, and throw even more money away lol


on a serious note, what channel is best for the ram? the manual states channel B (A2-B2)


ram in sig.

I'm using the Black ones. tongue.gif
post #296 of 416
same here, tbh i have no choice! and just seen your cooler and so do you by the looks of it lol!


i guess im just having trouble getting stable pass 4.6ghz due to not enough volts and inadequate cooling for them volts.

A2-B2 are the slots I'm using and the preferred slots per the manual.

FYI - Too much vcore on a Vishera CPU can cause instability just as too little can, IME.

If you haven't already done so, up the HT voltage to 1.25v and CPU-NB to 1.30v and test. You may be able to lower the vcore and get P95 stability with the higher HT and CPU-NB voltages? What are you running for vcore, HT voltage, RAM voltage, etc. My RAM is 1866 MHz. @1.5v and I'm running it at 1.55v @ 2133 MHz.

The way I OC is to leave the RAM at 1866 MHz. or lower to eliminate RAM issues. Then work out the best CPU OC P95 stable. Then go back and up the RAM frequency a step at a time and re-test for stability. You can run looser RAM timings if need be. Higher than 1600 MHz. RAM frequency and tighter timings produce no tangible system performance. Increased CPU frequency nets much greater system performance gains.

BTW, I'll give you $10. for that lousy FX-8350 if you pay the delivery costs. wink.gif

had this small FFTs stable

you dont want to know volts, itll make you sick but both cpunb v and vcore was under or near 1.5v wink.gif




what you said above is what i usually do, i can get stable just using multi no probs (i was being a bit light with volts, usually not having enough)

but im trying for a higher cpunb and HT but witha higher HT clock it gets very fragile

In fact - I could use the RED ones, but the BLACK slots, when populated, look better in my rig.

I have no clearance issue. thumb.gif

d1nky-

I suspect that your vcore and CPU-NB are too high but each CPU is different. I'd lower them both and increase the HT voltage a bit - but not crazy.
