hi everyone , some good info on here keep it up thumb.gif

hope you all can help.......

i have a slight problem which i think might be not enough power , i can get 4.415ghz on my 8120 at 1.35v(bios)1.39(load) with just using multi and i can boot at 4.5 and 4.6 but as soon as i put load on 4.5 an 4.6 it just freezes, i have tried upping vcore and i have tried higher fsb and lower multi but still freeze ? it doesnt even blue screen or go weird colours and turn off just freeze ! thinking.gif

i have xfx 850 , 2x 6950, chf v 990 any ideas ? i dont really want to take out a graphics card or should i to see if it is my psu ?

Sounds like PSU or something overheating.

Those tests are going to heavily favor intel and older chips, The video encoding test is using SSE2 which is slower on BD and the multitasking test only uses 2 threads lol.
Got no idea how my score compares to other chips tho.
Done on 8120 @ 4.5ghz

For 4.5ghz youll be pulling around 350W from just the CPU, So two 2x 6950 will mean you need atleast 650W if not 700W
You didnt give any temps so what are those like.

Also have you added any more voltage to the cpu-nb.

i got 27 c idle and at 4.4ghz 51 c at load all i have done volts wise is 1.35 on vcore

My results of Custom PC Benchmarks Suite

Results:

Image editing: 1061 points.
Video encoding: 2782 points.
Multitasking testing: 1395 points.
Overall score: 1746 points.

didnt pay attention to the rest but I noticed on image editing benchmark only core 1 was being used between 90-95%. core 0,2,3,4, and 5 were between 1-5%

Try increasing more voltage on cpu and cpu/nb. the psu should be fine unless faulty.

Max safe voltage for cpu is 1.55v and cpu/nb is about the same but I wouldnt go over 1.5v

For 4.6Ghz I would try 1.45v cpu and 1.375v on cpu/nb. See if that works. Make sure you have all power saving features turned off on the cpu along with high performance setting in apu.

Set CPU LLC to ultra high and cpu/nb LLC to high. Disable turbo core if you havent already just to make things easier.

You do have the 8-pin 12v power connected right? Sometimes it comes loose so make sure you check it.

Sometimes there is a small voltage wall right there that has to be dealt with to get stable. I know I can get stable with stock votlage at 1.325v up to 4.4Ghz but any higher and I have to increase voltage to 1.425 at least to get stable any higher than 4.4Ghz. If I had to guess I would say that this is the problem. Increase voltage to 1.45v for cpu and 1.35v for cpu/nb. Make sure you dont have ram or cpu/nb or ht overclocked just so you can exclude that for now.

try this and let me know how ti works. This should fix the problem. If not let us know and well try to help out some more. Again, make sure all power saving features are off and set bios to:

CPU - 1.45v

CPU/NB - 1.35v

CPU LLC - Ultra High

CPU/NB LLC - High

Hope this helps.

Also whigh xfx 850 do you have? There is the pro850 and then there is the pro850 xxx.

The XXX version has two 8 pin power adapter. If you have this one you will be able to plug in all the power connections that are on the board. There is 24 pin, a 8 pin and a 4 pin power connection on the board. Have you done this?

If you dont have the xxx version then dont worry about this question and just make sure that your 24 pin and your one 8 pin 12v power is connected right.
