How can you have dual channel and unganged?
Been reading the manual of my mother board and it says to enable duel channel change DCT's Mode to ganged.
Spent the last few hours trying every setting for my ram and different speed/timings combos nothings gotten it any faster. Changing to 1t is the only thing thats made any real increase and that was in the latency from 56.4 to 56.2ms
first most people think that ganged means dual channel, it does not, and unganged means single channel. THIS is not true. Ganged or unganged refers to the bus width. Ganged being 128bit, and unganged being 64 bit. You can run dual channel unganged it simply means that your runnings 2x64bit vs 1x128bit. By running 2x64 you have 2 busses instead of one, which can be used independently by each cpu core, usually resulting in better performance vs ganged mode.

Everything I have read about overclocking these chips says to disable cool and quiet in the Bios...I have done this. So why is my cpu still behaving like it is on?
I've also adjusted the CPU power slider in the AMD vision control, but it has had no effect.
Are you telling me it is completely normal for cpu-z to diplay a multiplier of 7.0 when the system is completely idle?
are you 100% certain you turned it off? and saved to bios (pressing f1 does this in most bios) because yes your system droping to x7.0 mutiplier is completely normal with cool and quiet on.
Most people will tell you to turn off cool and quiet at first to find your max overclock. After your done finding your stable overclock for the love of god turn back on cool and quiet, unless its causing some sort of performance issue. There is no reason to turn if off otherwise. To give you an idea that what it does. MY pc will draw next to 350watts at idle with cool and quiet off. With Cool and quiet on, my pc will draw like 150watts at the wall. 200 watt difference at idle. Exactly the same performance. Other benefit the computer goes silent with cool and quiet on, with out my pc is not silent and has noise level of around 35dba at idle.

Yes I am 100% certain. However, I am now using a newer bios and experiencing new instability issues....Before I was able to overclock to 4.4 ghz using only multipler with 1.44v on vcore and prime stable for hours. Now I can't obtain same speeds and remain stable on bios F6F, eventhough it added additional features such as APM. One thing I am noticing is that my voltage according to vcore is coming nowhere near what I have it set to in the bios...for 4.4 ghz cpu-z never reads above 1.42v...eventhough I have bios vcore at 1.48v...any thoughts on why this is?

By the way thank you for your help.

i am guessing your using the gigabyte 990fxa-ud3? From my experiences f6f is a horrible bios. F6c is reported to be better than f6f, but i don't use them (not even sure its available on their website). I find that F5 is the best bios currently.

F5 is by far the best overclocker, and seems to be the best bios for the ud3 at this time. I really like the features of the new F6 bios, but have proved to be unstable (when overclocking (suffer strange v-core drop)), and have some weird quirks. Not sure whats going on with the 990 fxa bios seems like all manufacturers have had some sort of issues here or there.

I couldn't agree with you more. F6 has great features that reduce many of the throttling and vdroop issues, however it is horribly unstable. If the next bios update can mesh the features of F6 and the stability of F5, then I will be perfectly happy. In the meantime, I guess it is back to F5 where I pretty much top out at 4.4-4.5 ghz...

they don't hurt performance. They are worth installing, windows should do it for you.

Hey quick question guys. I recently got an fx 8120 for my 990fxa ud7 and had some questions about APM. When I disable it in my bios it works fine, that is until I S3 sleep my computer. That breaks it and I either have to restart or hibernate for it to function as set in bios. So I ask, if anyone else with a Gigabyte board could let me know if this is the case for them. Also can anyone with an Asus sabertooth or CH V could let me know how it is for them. Becuase if its just a Gigabyte issue then bye bye to this mobo.....

what is the fx-2130p?
post #3609 of 8112
I need to correct my validation link. I now have my bios set to a "stock" configuration where everything is running at rated box-speeds with zero power management. 100% wide-open-throttle stock config. Runs very smooth atm.

Pretty sharp budget build so far. Has been a hell of an upgrade for me. Still wondering about skipping Phenom II all together but so far I'm feeling good.

Never heard of it, but if it does exist, and it follows the normal bulldozer type names, i'd guess a dual core (one module) bulldozer with integrated video...
