AMD FX (Bulldozer) Owners Club! - Page 359

post #3581 of 8112

Announcement:
Turns out that the ASUS Crosshair 5 Formula club happens to need a new owner. Tweeky has asked me (pioneerisloud) to find a replacement as he would like to retire from this club. If anybody would like to take ownership of this club, and keep it updated daily, please shoot me (pioneerisloud) a PM with the title "Crosshair V Application", and tell me why we should pick you as the replacement.

Thanks,
~pio

My voltage and multiplier are constantly fluctuating according to CPU-Z. I have v-core set at 1.46 v for 4.4ghz, but it drops as low as 1.108. Also the multiplier will drop anwhere as low as 7.0x. I've turned off C1e, turbo, and cool and quiet. I see no option to increase LLC. I'm currently running bios version F4 for my gigabyte 990fxa-ud3...do I need to update to F5 or F6 to obtain some stability with the multiplier and voltage, or am I missing something. My system is prime 95 stable at the settings I've described above..but I know something isn't right with the fluctuations...
Also, my cpu requires 1.5v to hit 4.5 ghz...this seems like a significant jump from 4.4ghz. Any help would be appreciated.
I can get my fx6100 to 4.7ghz with vcore just under 1.5 but my cooling is nowhere near good enough to keep the heat down otherwise I would try higher, when I get a better heatsink and cooler i'll be keeping at around 4.6ghz instead of the 3.8ghz I have it at now (due to cooling),

Your issue sounds like vdroop, a bios update may fix it, I have the Asus M5A97 Pro and have no vdroop at all, it does have loads of tweaking options though so could be why, I have my LLC set to high along with a few other options, it's a fantastic motherboard for the money.

I am not terribly impressed no. I've managed ddr3 2100+ with my mushkin blackline ddr3 2000 8gb kit. I am currently at 2000mhz 1t 9-10-9-27. Which is their spec speed, but i did manage 1t timings.
I haven't really pushed the memory to its highest mhz possible, I prefer to keep the timings nice and tight. While yes it is much faster than i could get my thuban to do, its overall impact on system performance is pretty small.

How have you managed to get such better results?
See mine below, what do I need to adjust to get mine more on par with yours specially the read speed as yours is double the speed of mine!?

hmm what all have you tried to do? To find my max stable memory clock i dropped the clock on the cpu multiplier down to 3.5ghz setting and then started to adjust the FSB untill i got unstable.and then either added voltage or changed one of the timings

what memory and motherboard are you running ?? 1600mhz sticks are not bad but most wont reach over 2000+mhz speeds without rediclously high timings.

Try lowering your timings instead of raising the speed try running ddr3 1600 cl7-8 or 1800 cl 9

I had my Gskill running ddr3 2000 8-9-8-28-1t the other day it really takes some patience when it comes to playing with memory

I'm using an Asus M5A97 Pro, FX6100, 8gb Corsair 1600 DDR 3 Vengeance, I can't get my ram over 1866mhz but even then the speed is way below the results ebduncan posted with his!?

hmmms your speed isn't that far off. Considering your at a slower clock rate and looser timings.

I was running ddr3 2006mhz with 9-10-9-27 1t timings in dual channel, unganged. 2600mhz northbridge, 2600mhz hyper transport. in that benchmark. memory voltage 1.65

the gigabyte 990fxa ud3 really has a ton of memory settings, I can tweak for days in the bios.

to score like mine, you will need ddr3 2000+ speeds, and timings like what i have set. Takes some quality ram to reach these speeds. I have nothing but good things to say about corsair, but their ddr3 1600 doesn't clock to well, of course they offer higher speeds as well.

Ok thanks!
I also have loooooads of settings for memory but no idea what half of them do lol!

Also, should I be using 1600mhz 9-9-9-24 or 8-9-8-24, or 1866mhz 10-11-10-30 or something else? those are the best timings i seem to be able to get, not sure if that's good or bad and which speed/timing i should stay with?

My MB is Rev 1.0. I went ahead and flahsed the bios up to F5 today. This added the C6 option, which I subsequently disabled...however I'm still getting the same vcore and multipler fluctuations.

Perhaps this is a total noob question, but is it normal when my computer is at idle to have the multipler drop to 7.0? I realize when non-cpu intensive activities are being performed that the cpu doesn't need to be operating full bore, but this still seems a bit low??

For the most part I am extremely happy with the CPU and MB. My benchmarks have performed well and games like BF3 run very smooth on ultra. But I'd like a better understanding of what is considered "normal" in terms of performance behavior.

Any additonal information would be much appreciated.
