I bet I do. An that's not what I want to hear frown.gif

Okay. So here is the solution that I have come to. Tell me if this would be good.

The Sabertooth 990FX (edit)

The Cooler Master Hyper 212

The Sapphire 7950 3 GB

All on a 650W PSU.

Would this work?

Well it's official guys, Bulldozer makes a perfectly fine folder, TPF of 1:17 on a 6904 WU for 64k PPD at only 4.66 GHz.

Not being a good motherboard for OC on these chips means you probably wont get above 5Ghz.
4.2-4.4Ghz is a very good OC for everyday use, it's right on the edge of needing too much voltage, and creating too much heat.
Summary: You would be fine with a decent CPU cooler and the 7950

~4.5 is getting kinda risky if the MB does not have an adequate VRM cooling solution. Even the FX-4100 was tripping the VRM thermal protection on a 970 board with heatsinked VRM (w/o a dedicated fan on the heatsink) at 4.6-4.7Ghz @ 1.5v.

These chips OC fairly easily, but draw tons of power. I would not recommend going beyond 1.45v and 4.4Ghz unless the board has VRM heatsinks, especially with the FX-6000 and FX-8000 series chips. If it has a VRM heatsink you should be good to 4.6Ghz. Although a small fan on the heatsink is highly recommended, especially with the 6 and 8 core models.

Mind posting some Cinebench scores with your setup? Don't think I've seen a FX 6XXX @ 5Ghz yet.

I ran it this morning before going to work but did not screenshot it,

the Cinebench 11.5 result was 6.18 on CPU

I will be cranking it down to 4.5 as that where I could keep the temperature the most stable.the 5gig OC' ran at 65degrees under load during Cinebench.

At 4700 it never peaked above 50, so i Will look at a couple of things next...

running it at 4.5gig with current cooling,
or improving cooling system and increase again.

...and yes, better than my old Q6600 smile.gif

The bulldozer only run hot really when you start to push their limits.

MY 8120, at stock is quite a cool running chip. When i push it to 4ghz it starts to getting terribly inefficient.

The difference between a 8120 @ 4.6ghz and a the same 8120 @5ghz is HUGE in terms of power draw and heat. For me 4.6-4.7ghz is the sweet spot. Not to mention the VRM's. I had to install a fan in that area on my ud3 to cool the northbridge and the vrms.

@trucker guy the ud3 is a great motherboard, i would suggest the asus crosshair V though

Hey guys,I have a question,do you think that an FX 8150 will bottlenecks a HD 7990 or GTX 690?The 7970 is already out so 7990 is probably match a downcloacked 7970 crossfire.My CPU is running at 4.5 Ghz at the moment,and I have a GTX 590,and I'm planning to buy a 7990 or a GTX 690,but I hope I will gain FPS with buying one of those cards,but If my cpu bottlenecks the cards than I probably bearly gain some fps.Sorry for my bad english and thanks.

This is pretty much what I have found, at 4.5-4.7 the FX-6200 has a pretty nice Sweet spot thermally under load, but when you take it uppast that , or at least on mine, the Heat goes up alot more.

I am using a sealed water cooler though so I could probably do better to cool it than that .

Good Mobo,
Decent CPU cooler for your desired O.C.
Awesome GPU

Call and see if Newegg will make your purchase a Mobo/GPU combo. Might pay for the CPU cooler
