Also, I don't want to contribute to a potential monoply in this particular segment of the market

ASUS website says nothing about FX support.

I wouldn't count on it working.

You need a new mobo for FX chips

OK, thanks for the speedy replies, looks like I'm either waiting for Piledriver or until I have enough money to also get an AM3+ board.

Or for a revised version of BD, if that ever happens.

looking at your sig rig, you should put you money into a new monitor, SSD and some RAM first before you consider upgrading your CPU

So, Im fiddlin with this in shop FX 4100 on a 760G AM3+ board.... or so it says...lol
Ive achieved a stable 4.5ghz @ 1.28v , VID of 1.25v in BIOS, its on stock cooler and never exceeds 45c!
I have all the power features of processor disabled in BIOS
Im monitoring the clocks using HWinfo64 .. it was throttling down due to VRM temp reaching 85C when it was @ stock voltages @ 4ghz+.... but at 1.28v 4.5ghz it never sees above 77C on the VRM's and never throttles.

Is this normal for FX4100? I havent seen this good of a clock at this voltage yet.
Whats funny is the stock setting is vcore of 1.4v!!
It gets hotter and uses more power stock settings then it does w/ this OC and voltage @ 1.28v!!

Im somewhat in shock LOL! Seems like its awesome.

When running linx , 4.5ghz @ 1.28v it shows around 165watts from wall. The rest of system specs is 1 HDD and 1 ODD. Also, has a passive PFC 400watt PSU(so it has maybe 70-80% efficiency)..

Stumbled upon this site and have to say I like it.

Kelwing - AMD FX 4100 - Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 (F5 bios)

Upgraded from an Athlon64 x2 6400+, Asus M2N-E

This is kind of weird.

You said VID is 1.25v then you say its 1.4v. What is your stock voltage? If it is 1.4v then you may have a sweet chip that should be able to reach over 5GHz but if it is 1.25v then yes your numbers are fairly normal but you will see once you get to around 4.8-5.0GHz then your voltage is going to go way up past 1.55v to get stable. This is what I have seen with stock voltages that are really low. If is 1.4 then you shouldn't be able to reach 4.5GHz at 1.28v but you should be able to overclock to 5GHz without going over 1.525v and should be able to reach over 5GHz. This is only if stock voltage is over 1.35v "in most cases".

What is you stock voltage? Stock voltage is same as VID when set to auto.

1.4v is the vid it picks up with turbo core enabled. Need to disable that then boot into windows restart and go back to the bios and it will say the real stock vid.

If you have a Microcenter in your area they have a sweet deal on their FX6100 and FX4100 chips where you get $50 off the MB. IIRC you can get a 970 MB for $40 that will work with the FX series or spend a little more for a 990fx board since the FX6100 is only $149 versus the FX8120 for $200. Just a thought.

Can someone post their cinebench R11.5 score on their overclocked fx-8120 @ 4.5ghz or higher. Also is anyone seeing performace gains from overclocking the NB on the 8120 & 8150's.

Thanks in advance!
