Try the Bulldozer OC guide.

I've had good results with my rig. You do need to disable the boost function and reboot as in the directions. Otherwise your vcore will be too high.

Hi guys. I just bought an AMD FX 8120 + ASUS M5A99X EVO motherboard combo and received for free a set of 8 gigs of RAM. I have a question thought. I recently purchased this RAM too, and i don't know which kit should i use... redface.gif

What do you think i should use. The Kingston or the Corsair (i have both kits.. i will sell 1 of them smile.gif )
Thanks in advance =D . PS - what do you think about the mobo. I can still return it and get a FXA990 UD3 or an MSI 990FX GD60 i think (i didn't get the Gigabyte because of the dodgy bios - my friend has it). So? biggrin.gif

Since you've got the Asus M5A99X Evo, I'd say you should use the Kingston. Fits nicely in with the blue on the motherboard. smile.gif I can't say anything about the motherboard, though. But I am almost certain that it's a very solid one.

Im about to buy a new asus motherboard, i currently have a m5a87 which is very crappy for fx8120, I was thinking on getting the m5a97 does it worth to change from m5a87 to m5a97?

What is the difference between the m5a97 and the other variations like pro or evo?

What other motherboards would you recommend? obviously besides the Crosshair V which is out of my range of price.

Problem is, each chip and board are different. My settings may not work for you or they may use more voltage than you really need. The directions are pretty simple. If you have good cooling, liquid is best, you should be able to achieve an OC of 5 GHz with a bit of luck.biggrin.gif

if you are going to overclock the memory use the corsair since it runs at 1.5v your overclocking will be better than the kingston set that requires 1.65v to run at the exact same settings
