So no answers for this question?

Disable APM in the BIOS. It throttles the cpu if it exceeds its TDP. You may require a BIOS upgrade to get this option.

I'm slowly working my way through this thread, so excuse me if this is answered and I haven't read it yet.
I found the spec sheet from AMD that says 71* is the safe temp for the FX-6100 but it doesn't mention voltage.
Has it been concluded that 1.5v vcore or less is acceptable for all FX processors?

I think up to 1.55v. I can not go past 1.5v with my current cooler.

Most electronics are safe to take 20% more power.
This for a bulldozer would be off your stock vid.
1.28 = 1.53
1.32 = 1.58

Hey there, new Bulldozer owner here. I just got a FX6100, and I am in the middle of returning it unless I can get a nice OC on it. I've been trying, but I can't get it to boot with 4.0GHz on core and 2.6GHz on NB, or any OC for that matter. I would appreciate ff someone with a Gigabyte board can tell me which settings to change in the BIOS, coming from an Intel person I have no idea what I am doing.

Thanks

Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 needs bios F6c or F6d.
F6e on there website disables vcore adjustments and a few other overclocking stuff isnt working on it.

2.6ghz NB is too higher, Above 2.5ghz loses performance from micro errors. For 2.5ghz you need about 1.25 nb voltage and 1.3 cpu-nb voltage.
Raise the ht link to around 2.8-2.9ghz will need 1.3v on the ht.

Here is the F6c bios

F5 bios doesnt work with bulldozer properly.

Also disable APM, and all the power saving features.

What voltage should I start with for 4GHz and 2.2GHz on the NB?
Sorry for the stupid questions, first timer here on the AMD side.

El gappo is ligit. It was recorded and streemed live while he achieved this frequency. Welcome!
Gappo, what did you have to take the voltage up to get that overclock? I have taken mine up to 1.64v on water and its still runnin strong. I usually use mine at 4.9GHz at 1.525v but in order to reach 5.0GHz the voltage goes up to 1.58v to become stable. Did you run into the same kind of a problem?
Let me know how the new chip works out for you.
Thanks

In your BIOS are you setting your LLC on the CPU and CPU/NB to Extreme? How about the Current Capacity(Auto, 110, 120,130%)

Should do 4ghz on stock vcore, Or if you have a low vid chip 1.32v then should do 4.5ghz on 1.40v and 5ghz some where around 1.48-1.50v
2.2ghz NB is stock nb isnt it? should do that 1.15v nb

Also once you get up to 4ghz you need to start bumping the cpu-nb voltage up. I just keep it once voltage steep below the vcore tho for stability and since it only makes 1c difference having it at 1.25v vs 1.3v.

Work with the multiplyer first to find the max you can.
Then set it back to stock and find the max FSB.
Then work with both to get the best bench marks.

The FSB overclocking gets you more performance then the multi as long as you keep the NB around 2.5 and the HT around 2.8 - 2.9ghz
3ghz on the ht makes it faster in cine-bench but slower at floating point and encryption which is where the bulldozers are lacking behind phenom 2, so its best to keep those up at the expense of what bulldozers are good at.
