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.
And so far...... ive got
cpu volts load at 1.44
cpu/nb volts 1.44
nb at 2500
ht at 2750
fsb 250
multi x18
ram 1672
cpu llc ultra high
cpu/nb llc high
cpu temp idle 28'c
cpu temp load 59'c
ambient room temp 15'c
cpu speed 4.515ghz
And all seems to be stable so far , im currently running p95 now but so far it has lasted longer than any other settings yet !
I will update when i decide to stop p95 in about 7-8 hours!
Thankyou for helping me !!!! thumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gif

Yeah no problem. Usually around here we hook each other up with rep when someone offers good info. Not saying that you have to do it but it would be appreciated.

What clock are you running at? You didnt say in your post. I have posted so many settings on this thread I cant remember what I suggested. I doubt its 5Ghz seeing that your at 1.44v. You could probably lower your cpu/nb to 1.4 or 1.375v too, i would think without losing stability.

Hope everything works out for you.

Keep us up to date with your results. We always like to hear the latest news on how bulldozer is doing.

Keep up the good work.

EDIT: Sorry didnt notice the multi you posted. I see you are at 4.5Ghz now. Yeah I defintely think you should be able to lower your cpu/nb voltage at least .05v or so. try it and see if its still stable. You dont want more voltage than you need, that just causes more heat.

I got a question for you peeps. I have an fx 8120 sitting here and am getting ready to put it in my gigabyte 890gpa-ud3H. My question is how do you think the chip will over clock on the amd 890 chipset?

4.5ghz so far , should i give cpu a bit more juice ?
as for the cpu/nb volts i was just trying to rule out problems by giving it more juice than it should require smile.gif

I know that I am trying to sell my system right now but I might be able to get away from not selling it. I get a bonus next month for $5500 and I think I should be able to hold off till then.

I have been looking to get custom water cooling kit. What do you guys think about this?

333332

On top of cpu block too. I would like to get some gpus that I can water cool too if I can find some for cheap. I want to put a triple 120mm rad and a sinle 120mm rad in the loop.

But just for now the mobo water block and the cpu water block. What do you guys think? I am thinking about mounting the rad outside in the freezing weather during the winter for my BD.

It's an EK full cover waterblock for Crosshair V.
I'm not sure if it's worth to watercool the actual board. I would rather spend money and cool something else in the system.

any1 with ideas on a cpu only w/cooling setup for 8120 ?

i have seen 140mm rads and that would be a bonus or 120mm ?

havent really got room for anything bigger unless i mount rad outside case (antec 300)

Throw a triple on there and put it on outside the case.
