post #3051 of 8112
Omg I went back to 1.30 bios and it still was doing the same thing. So I decided to turn it into a quad core (don't know which cores cause it doesn't let me see that) and ran prime95 and BAM it didn't freeze up! So outta curiosity I turned on one core per module (quad core) and it froze again in prime95!!!!!! Mind u this is at 4.5 ghz with 1.5volts so that tells me a module is bad but I don't know which one? Guys this is so so so depressing. I knew I shoulda got an 8150 jeez

Flick it off onto ebay then, But it might be a manufacturing defect with there castings which would mean it would be on the 8150's as well until another revision.
You can test the cores individually by using AOD to only overclock 1 at a time.
Then just clock the weaker one/'s lower,

I unno what I'm gonna do. I just booted at 5.0ghz with 1.52v sooooo def a module problem. Sigh.

edit: booted at 5ghz as a quad core sorry for not stating that. cinebench failed like 90% through though but atleast I was able to get into windows cause before I disabled cores I couldnt even post.

edit #2: Just realized the 4.95ghz cinebench fail was on one core per module. Now I put it on 4 core settings (not one per module) and it passed cinebench. the score was horrible though only 3.73 points with 4 cores 4 threads at 4.95ghz ouch.

The BIOS No. looks like Gigabyte.

Probably not the best choise.

Could be the board.

Also, should have gone with the Crosshair V Formula.

I also realize that not everyone can afford such amenities.

Find the wall, back down a tick or two, and run with it.

Welcome to the club man. Sorry to hear you're having trouble with your cpu. What psu are you running? Gotta remember these things are power hogs when overclocked. Also, are you running the patches?

This board had my cheapo phenom II to 4.309ghz no problem. Plus for $400US I got 990fx fatal1ty, h100, m4 128gb ssd, dvd burner, haf x case and 16gb kingston 1600mhz ram. That is half price and it was all unopened with reciepts from a guy on craigslist. Its def the cpu. I mean I can not get 4.3ghz stable with ANY setting on all 8 cores. I'm gonna fool around in AOD and see what kinda luck I can get. Its obvious I didn't hit the silicon lottery

I haven't heard great things about the ASRock AM3+ boards. one other person I know of with one (extreme 4) cant get there FX-6100 over 4.2Ghz stable

I haven't had any problems with mine and it's the same board that dstoler has.

I think some folks here have forgotten the definition of overclocking...

The first rule of OC'in is that there are no guarantees in OC'ing. This CPU might has less overhead than others or the BIOS/mobo/RAM/PSU or the phase of the moon could be impacting how much it OC's. That's part of OC'ing. If the CPU was guaranteed to OC a specific amount then they would just speed bin it and sell it at a higher price. No one got gypped. You don't even know if the CPU is the limitation unless you test it with many other configurations. rolleyes.gif
