I've got them running 872.9Mhz 10-10-10-24-34 stable.
I'm not sure what is considered a good maxxmem score, but what I do know is this thing spanks the crap out of my old QX6700 in every thing I've tested, and I've been told a QX should be better than BD. I do not agree from personal use and testing.
here are the maxxmem scores from my QX6700
Hi, new here! just built my new system with an AMD FX6100,
I'm also using Corsair Vengeance 8gb (2x4gb), not sure how my stats look?
Anything I can improve?

The only time I took my CPU to 1.7v was when I was doing outside overclocking (Winter -10). I had the Multi to 25 and the FSB to 208 to get 5.2Ghz. I needed 1.7v to run Cinebench. I get way lower temps and Voltage using FSB as well. Thanks for the tips

Really? 1.7v for 5.2ghz cinebench?

You sure thats right?

I can run cinebench at 5.2ghz with "just" 1.55v

Yep, true story. Setting Multi only is a voltage Hog on my FX.

Has any one got Corsair Vengeance 1600 above that with out loosening the timings?
450

I'd say that's about where you should be.

So latency takes a dump then?

My old Thuban score:

565

I'll try for looser timings and more frequency I guess.

I ran the test twice, one in ganged and the other in unganged mode. Ganged mode gave the better overall score. Latency looks good??

Whats the highest stable FSB for the FX chips?
post #2568 of 8112
here is where i stand

memtest1.jpg


note, there is a huge improvement in memory test speeds with the nb at 2.6ghz vs 2.3


DDR3@ 2006mhz
Timing 9-10-9-27
unganged
north bridge 2579mhz

just started messing with the north bridge today, bit bored so doing some tweaking. Currently at 1.2 volts , cpu nb vid added an extra .050. Gonna shoot for the next level on the north bridge if possible.

Sorry to sound dumb but what are the settings I should be adjusting to change the memory timings?

My Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit does this too when I change the clock speed with AI Suite II.

I can hit 4.5Ghz with 1.375v on my 8120. It all depends on the chip you get. The FX chips vary in performance more than any other chip I have used.

I have taken my CPU/NB voltage to 1.5v before. I have also heard that it can go as high as the vcore voltage as well. Older systems used to link the vcore and the cpu/nb voltage together to run the same.
I wouldn't take the cpu/nb voltage higher than what my cpu voltage is at that time. I dont think there is really any need to take it over 5 though.
I have found that the sweet spot for me is right around 1.425-1.45v.

I have gotten my 8120 stable at 275Mhz and Multiplyer at x18. I have to do some more testing but I believe that I have found the best performance for my chip to be right around the 260Mhz mark for the FSB.
I will let you know if I get any new results.
