Id say the ASRock boards will do good with BD, their BIOS's seem to be much more ironed out than Gigabyte. Probably on the same level as ASUS, but a little cheaper. Theyre the same company yaknow. wink.gif

kinda a stretch. I mean, Pegatron does own Unihan Corp. which was owned by asus at one time, but that is reallllly a stretch

Posting here now so i keep it in mind when the time comes.

Looks like getting a new play server for work, running an Opteron 6272 16 core CPU, bulldozer arch. Not much of a benchmark person, but might install win 7 or win 8 on it and run some benchies just for fun. what kind of benchmarks would people want to see?

cinebench even though it is damn near irrelevant.


some sort of video render. Maybe we could agree on a file to use, and then both render/convert the same one, and compare

Why would you have gotten the 8 core instead? Does your 6 core have higher CPU usage than you would like?
It runs everything just fine. When the prices dropped and the 8120 was 199 I just thought it was a better deal than a 6100 at 159-169. Its running everything just fine.

It doesn't seem to be that hard to have better bios then gigabutt. I am really considering getting either a asus sabertooth or asrock fatality board.

Been playing around with disabling cores and such here are my basic findings.

Using the disable 1 core per module really boosts single thread performance.
With its at 4.2ghz it out preforms my 955 @ 4.2ghz in single threaded tests, Where having all the cores on it would lose by a small amount.
In multi threaded stuff it still wins by a large amount and comes up equal to my 1090t at 4.2ghz in everything except ram tests.

Turning that disable 1 core per module off and disabling 1 module off (making it a 6100).
Single thread proformance goes back to how it was with all the cores running.
At 4.2ghz its slower in single thread then my 955 @ 4.2.
In multi threaded stuff it beats the 955 but comes in slightly slower then the 1090t @ 4.2ghz. Also comes in slower then when it was running 1 core per module disabled.

Turning 2 modules off (making it a 4100)
Single thread remains the same and slow, Multi thread its equal to the 955 but loses in floating point, Way slower then the 1090t.

Also for the hell if It I overclocked it to see if there was any more to gain.
With 1 core per module disabled I could gain 200mhz more with the same voltage as well as running 5C cooler, Could just be luck since core 1 is my weakest and that was disabled.
Running as a 6100 it ran 2C cooler couldnt overclock any higher.
Running as a 4100 it ran 3C cooler, Could overclock another 100mhz.

Didnt try running it with only 1 core but Id guess that would allow a lot more overclocking.
Going to re-do the tests with windows 8 latter on when Im not busy playing with my new SSD raid.

Is the FX-6100 really that bad, or has it improved with BIOS updates and Windows updates? I know my B55 processor is pretty decent as it is, however whenever there's a power outage or a rough restart, the BIOS will "forget" about my unlocked cores, resulting in me having to fiddle with the BIOS again to unlock the extra 2. I would like a CPU that all around will have more cores, not just "sometimes".

I will mainly be doing the following:
1) Battlefield 3
2) Gameplay Recording/Rendering
3) Photoshop
4) Video Rendering

If I come up with extra money, I'll grab the FX-8120 or 8150, but right now the 6100 seems decent for the money.

Input? I won't be doing major overclocking, maybe just a little bit. SLI/Crossfire with a new board in the future is likely.

Everything you listed suits FX cpus really well, even BF3 is able to utilize 8 cores. Grab the 8120 if you can, it's much cheaper than the 8150 and is capable of similar if not the same overclocks.

If you can't grab an 8 core the 6100 would still suit you really nicely for those apps.
