I would also try putting the VRM frequency at around 500-520Mhz for more stability if you can do that in your AI Suite II.
What are your temps like when you stress the cpu?

I sit at about 60*C in prime95

Let me know how it goes...

Still 6 cores/6 threads.CPU Z
Nothing pops up under the Bios for the core activation/deactivation...
Is it a faulty CPU or just the fact that testing it on a Crosshair IV Formula isnt the adequated method?
In theory these Bios'ses should support it and it does work but the lack of the other 2 cores worries me, also note that the owner of this CPU already bent the pins in it twice.
Thanks for answering.

I would try it in a legitimate AM3+ board. The Crosshair IV is not a real AM3+ board, so AMD will most likely not allow an RMA based on that since they don't officially support what you're doing. I know over here I'd never be allowed to RMA a BD if I was running it in an AM3 board.

However, if you can try it in an AM3+ board, and it still does the same, then that chip must go back...

On another note, have you guys done the gaming benchmarks yet? I'm especially interested in games like SC2 and Crysis 1, especially on the FX-4100...

I'm running an FX4100 @ 4GHz (very mild OC, I pushed to over 5GHz and it was pretty stable at impressively low voltages) with a single GTX470 at stock clocks. I'm running Skyrim on Ultra with great FPS. I haven't run FRAPS yet, so I have no idea what they are numerically.....but it never runs slowly!!

@Victor, have you tried any older school games, to see how it performs with "single threaded" games?

I'm just curious how it performs because I'm building my PC this month, but I'm just a little nervous about pulling the trigger on the FX-4100...Even though it the best I can find in that range...

well this is what windows shows me, 8 cores in the hardware thingie and only uses 6 cores.338

running mine as a 4 core right now at 4.660ghz sc2 with my 6870 is averaging around 90-100fps

@ Victor - that's pretty good actually.

@ Tokkan you can see from task manager that its only picking up 6 cores, not 8. The only thing I can think of is trying it in an AM3+ board and seeing what it does...You could also try going to Hardware Manager and uninstalling it...and letting windows pick it up again, I think I read some where that some one did that, but I dobt know if its actually advisable...

Skyrim is a single threaded game, it runs one main thread and has a handful of really light threads. Uses 1.5 cores on my 1090T @ 3.8GHz.
