AMD FX (Bulldozer) Owners Club! - Page 428

post #4271 of 8112
hey guys... im REALLY curious about the FX memory controller... i have this ram kit Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9 (2 sticks of 4gb) and im still using a Phenom II 1090t... still waiting till 05-11 for my FX to arrive...

well question is... how can my new cpu handle this pair of ram sticks? will they be recognized as 1866 at the beginning? or will i have to adjust them manually?

im also planning in buying a pair of Dominator GT 8gb 2133mhz cas9...

1 -is this a good choice?
2 - wiil they fit? currently, my vengeance kit barely fits on the second slot because of the TT Frio covering up the first slot...

A little late to the party...

I'm getting a Asus CHVF soon, and a FX6100. I was wondering, typically, if anyone could get me a round-about overclock on these average? Cooling isn't a problem, as I'm watercooling, but if anyone can help a noob out, I'd be great.


Thanks!

They should be recognized as 1866 MHz. My G.Skill 1866 MHz kit would default to 1600 MHz, but not set proper timings so I had to set them manually.

So after lapping my CPU (which I don't recommend as it's a pain in the !@##) and getting some new fans for a push/pull setup on my H100, I have my Core Temps
down to 44C @ 4.6Ghz 1.45v (H100 setting on low) running Prim95. Think I'll play around tonight with some O.C. I was having some issues with stability running the F6 Bios for the Gigabyte 990fx UD3 Rev 1.0 MOBO (couldn't clock over 4.4Ghz) So I'm back to F5 for more O.C. Anyone else run into this problem?

So I switched back to the F5 Bios, and now O.C. is fine again (I'm going to have to blame the APM setting in the F6 Bios). Played around a bit more last night with my H100. @ 4.8Ghz 1.5v I was 50C on high, 56C on low. @ 5Ghz 1.55v the temps were a bit higher. Settling around 58C on high.

One thing I like about the air coolers is that they add a bit more airflow around the NB and VRM heatsinks. I had to add in extra fans for airflow in this area using the H100.
So really the Bulldozer chip doesn't run as hot as people are led to believe. People must be forgetting what speeds these are running at when they start to generate a lot of heat.
For instance, how much heat would a Phenom II be making at 5.0Ghz.

What was your CPU temperature, becouse core temps r useless
post #4276 of 8112
It got really hot where I lived yesterday and I had to turn up the AC. The ambient temps went down as a result and my rig now able run 4.8ghz @ 1.49v with ease, no issues with BF3 at all. As I mention earlier this thing is a monster at this speed it completely obliterates my 1055T @ 4ghz, which is saying a lot.

I have been looking around this site the last couple of weeks debating weather I should upgrade my current setup. I thought I would ask you guys since you have experience with the FX line of processors. Would it be wiser to upgrade now with a FX 8150 of just wait until the PileDriver cpu's come out.

Thanks
post #4278 of 8112
What CPU u have now ? FX 8150 is great when u overclock it high, and very good with moderate OC. But power consumption and thermals are big issue. Piledriver shoud fix that and bring higer speed. It will not hit stores beforeseptember, or october. If u can wait, Pilledriver will be better than FX 8150 for sure.
post #4279 of 8112
Right now I have a 3.33 Ghz 661 i5 processor. When I do upgrade it will be a new build minus the HDD's. Swift 810 and WC. I could always get the 8150 and upgrade to the piledriver after the prices come down a bit after launch.

Thanks
post #4280 of 8112
I would wait for piledriver even if the its just a 10-15% increase IPC in performance. They need to fix the massive power draw issues with bulldozer. That being said with a 810 and water you should have no problem getting the 8150 to 4.8ghz which should give you a decent amount of performance for $215. My advice is that if you are a gamer spend you money right now of some good GPU's and wait for Piledriver.
