Thanks for the Xbits posts, smile.gif shame it doesnt list the new FX-6200 or FX-4170 yet smile.gif
my CPU score is about 5200 on the FX-6200 which is about 700 higher than the FX-6100 (According to that.)
so I think I've done rather well, i'm itching to increase the OC on it !


What is your HT at? Should be 2000Mhz for optimal. Not higher or lower. And is your NB is between 2600-3000Mhz? On AMD those are big boost in performances.

FX doesnt gain much from NB clocks. Make sure you arent over-taxing your PSU. FX series can draw a massive amount of watts when overclocked.

It's for the amd retail access program. They are giving away 200 fx-8120's to the highest bidders. Bids are using points you get for taking tests. It's got 14 days left and low bid is still 25003(started at 25000) and I have 140k points so unless I forget to bid, I should easily win.

If you work in retail at one of the authorized retailers, you can sign up at retailaccess.com.

I use it, And Can't find anything that comes close performance wise for such a low cost !...
But one thing I have noticed, I get worse Performance on this paired with my FX-6200 than I did with my 5 -6 year old Intel Q6600...it's strange (Or it is to me.)

I would check all of your settings. My FX-6100 at max stable oc beat my QX-6700 at max stable oc in every thing, using the same video card.
I'll have to look for it but there is a thread where I posted side by side comparisons of bench marks from both cpu's

That would be awesome, i might be able to use your FX-6100 as basis for my FX-6200 because i'm really struggling to get this thing stable.
post #3930 of 8112
Would it be unheard of for an FX6100 to need over 1.5V to be stable at 4.5GHz? Mine is stable at 4.3GHz around 1.43V, but anything past that needs a huge voltage increase. I don't even know what voltage it would take to be stable at 4.5GHz. I gave up when it was still unstable at 1.5V.
