Computer Restore - FX-8150 - Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3

Just thought I'd help yas out too. The secret to O.Cing the Bulldozer is to lower the HTT Link and NB Speeds. It gives allot more thermal headroom and voltage to play with.

As an example. I run my HTT @ 1200Mhz and NB @ 1800Mhz. Hope that helps. It really makes the Bulldozer a whole lot better.

I'll gather some data and post it around the weekend.
I have borderlands, skyrim (ugh, amd drivers), crysis 1 bench etc.

The only sad thing is: the thread will be jumped by the intel police, who will then trash every result... it gets so boring.

I'll install Crysis 1 tonight and run the CPU, GPU, and GPU2 benchmarks with a MULTI overclock and a FSB overclock. Just Cause 2 has a decent benchmark on it too.

Nice, let's see if we can live it up a bit on FX side =)

The question I have is: does lowering the HTT and NB hinder performance at all? I mean, CPU clockspeed isn't all that matters. Does usability/benchmark performance increase despite lowering HTT/NB?

No this is not normal at all. You do not want your temps going over 60C. You may want to reseat your cooler. Maybe thermal compound and cooler are not sitting staight on chip. It shouldnt go that high even with that overclock.

Make sure your cooler is installed properly and is working correctly.

I'm wondering this too because I remember reading in another thread FX was originally intended to have a 3000MHz+ HT Link but they lowered it for some reason (maybe heat?). 1200MHz from the stock 2600 sounds crazy low. cigar.gif

How true is this. I have seen a little gain in performance from actually increasing them. Does doing this give you more headroom for overclocking. You mentioned the voltage. Are you saying that when you lower HT and NB clocks that you can clock cpu higher with less voltage?

Can I see your results please? I would like to see how well this works. Thanks

I will post some benchmark scores as well. I have mine overclocked to 4.94Ghz. I wanted to update bios with 9921 and see if i cant get stable with higher clocks. Want to try to lower HT and NB and see if that helps like computerrestore said. I see el gappo has his clock at 5.5Ghz with voltage at 1.536v which is amzing cause I have to go to 1.525v for 4.94Ghz. I want to know the secret.

Us BD owners need to get clock speeds over 5.0Ghz stable so we can start talking trash. I am tired of the stupid intel owners always talking about how bad BD is when they dont have any experience with it. If we can clocks over 5Ghz and start showing some real performance from BD then we can show them how stupid they really are. The BD is becoming more and more powerful with each bios update that comes out and the more people experiment with different bios settings. Soon enough we will be able to throw punches with 2600K if we keep up at this rate.

All BD owners need to work together to find a way to pull as much performance and clocks as we can out of this chip and show people what its really made of. If you feel confident enough please try different settings with your chip and run tests to see which configuration creates the most performance. Also keep an eye for technical issues that may be causing BD not to fully perform such as the APM setting in bios that was holding back a lot of BD performance from the beggining. We need to work on these things together, sharing information such as settings and configurations to obtain the best results.

I will keep everyone updated on my progress. I hope that everone else does the same. Think about how much more performance we have been able to get out of BD since its release. It has only been a month and since then, performance has increased dramtically. Letse keep up the good work and continue to show the world what BD is really made of.

For anyone who wants to know my current settings in bios:

Multi________x19.5
FSB________250MHz
CPU_______5000MHz
CPU/NB____2500MHz
HT Link_____2750Mhz
RAM_______2000MHz
CPU_______1.525v
RAM_______1.525v - 9-10-9-27
CPU/NB____1.400v
NB________1.225
HT________1.300v
CPU Load Line Calibration____Ultra High
CPU/NB Load Line Calibration____High
CPU Overcurrent Protection____Disabled
CPU/NB Overcurrent Protection____100%
All CPU Power Saving Features Disabled**

With these settings Benchmarks that I have gotten:

Cinebench_____8.14
Unigine_______ (will update)
3DMark Vantage_____ (will update)

Voltages change dramatically with these chips so keep that in mind. Even though I need 1.525v for cpu stability at that frequency you may only need 1.45v. Do not increase voltage unless needed for stability. I have reached 1.64v with my 8120 chip. Even though my chip did not blow up at this voltage yours may.

Also if you would like to attempt these settings please be sure that you have excellent cpu cooling (at least moderate water cooling)

Please let me know your progress with the BD chip as well.

Hope I could help.

What is your OC like now with the new BIOS Odienez?

4.7 but still got headroom. but im on a custom liquid cooling loop.

I'll post up all my settings tonight for my 6100.

I've got it stable at 4.69Ghz 260x18 1.45 vcore llc set to extreme, so get 1.48 vcore under load.
load temp of 54* IBT. I am on a custom water loop

Cinebench 11.5..........5.72
Geekbench 2.2............8884
