Bios update:
Went from F6 to F7f (beta) and saw an increase in cinebench scores (4.91 to 4.96 @3.1ghz), just flashed to the new F7 bios for my UD7 and cinebench jumped from 4.96 to 4.99 @3.1ghz. So progress is being made with the new CPU codes and tweeks. I'll run cinebench @4ghz later to see what I get. thumb.gif

There can be a little increase but this much of a change can happen just by running cinebench twice. I have seen cinebench jump .1 points just from running cinebench two seperate times with same settings.

Now it's gonna replace my Phenom ii x4 955 BE, the reason why I'm upgrading to this is for two reasons:
1. I (potentially) won't have to replace my motherboard
2. I play a lot of Battlefield 3 which seems to like Bulldozer and it's 8 cores.
-EDIT-
Also, I don't want to contribute to a potential monoply in this particular segment of the market

Yeah, definately no BD support on that motherboard. Also noticed that you were awaiting two 6850's to replace your Integrated Graphics. Just so you aren't suprised when you attempt Crossfire on that motherboard, it's not Crossfire capeble either. It only has Hybrid Crossfire support. Which mean you can use one of those 6850's and it will link with the integrated graphics chip.

In your case, if you already have the 6850's en-route, it'd be worthwhile to get an AM3+ board. Keep an eye on Newegg etc around boxing day and you could probably get a good mobo/cpu combo cheap cheap

Hey Mikezachlowe2004, would you mind posting some Cinebench pics of you getting 8+ scores? I'm not sure if my setup is slowed by heat or or if it's my Gigabyte Board. But even when I set the same specs as you have posted, I'm usualy about 0.60 points lower than your score.
I have the 990fx UD3 with F5 Bios. I am running the FX-8150. (all power saving settings off) I realize you are running the 8120, so maybe it just has better overclock ramping.

It could be a heat issue as I am only running Air. (CoreTemp and Speedfan say 50 Celsius, but I imagine I am closer to 70 Celsius

Sorry to barge in with a different post but I need some info, anyone with a 4100 please tell me the performance and power consumption, I need to setup my Linux server on that.

Power consumption at stock is ~95w, performance is around that of an i3 2100 or Phenom 2 945-955, higher in some things and slower in others.

Overclocked to ~4.6 it should be ~160w. Performance moves up substantially, into Phenom 2 x4 @ 3.8-4.0ghz range.

You will certainly notice an increase over your current Athalon especially if you overclock that sucker. (which they are made to do it seems) I do not own a Bulldozer yet but have been following extra closely since release and the 4100 @ $100 is a great buy if you ask me. Keep us posted when you get one, we love to hear other's results and experiences!
