lol, this is what I was going to ask. Not to mention, did he clean the thick layer of glue off that the sticker leaves behind.

HT Link speed should be 2600Mhz for the 8150 (not 2200Mhz)

Tell him to check the CPU temp under the bios System Health tab. It should be around 24-26C
If it's higher, then he should clean all mating surfaces with rubbing alcohol and re-paste.

I see that he likes the Pea sized TIM approach. I prefer the thin layer using a credit card approach, as some TIM's don't squish as well.

Network BIOS update should not be used with Gigabyte boards. Have him download the newest F11 BIOS and install that one through @BIOS then do Load Setup Defaults.

I have a similar system using an old Lian-Li case which I've modded to allow for water cooling. I have about 12 hard drives, 2 DVD burners, a zip drive and a SSD. My system has always been able to run fairly cool at stock speeds and run well with an overclock of about 4.6 GHz. However, prime5 has never run successfully on my system even at stock speeds. Everything else runs well.

I'm thinking about selling my FX 8120. I don't have many opportunities to use it because it's not my main rig. Anybody looking to pick one up? PM with any questions.

Ever since Intel started making the SB chips with limited Multiplier only based overclocking it has become a very boring platform to tweak. Plus I haven't had an AMD setup in a few years. To be honest with the 8120 at only 4.3Ghz I can't tell the difference at all in BF3 or Skyrim which are the only two games I'm playing at the moment. I'm not disappointed at all in my decision to go to a cheaper setup that I can't tell is a "lower" performer.

No sir. I've actually never played Minecraft. The 8120 is quite powerful when the threads are actually utilized. I have no problem running my GTX 670, which is a very powerful GPU, at 99% usage constantly in BF3. In the future all PC games will be optimized to utilize threads like BF3 and the FX series will show it's muscle.



This is what I have managed to achieve on my stock cooler:

It is actually undervolted from where it was stock by about .06V

I will get back with a better overclock after I swap the mounting hardware on my waterblock.

I almost knew that would be the answer. smile.gif You really can't tell the difference and oc'ing an AMD is lots of fun. Have had this 8120 since Nov 8th and I am still not done tweaking. redface.gif

That is strange. Try loading setup defaults and restart.

What BIOS are you running?

The only RAM trouble I've had is running 4 X 1866Mhz++ Modules. Takes a bit more tweeking than just running 2. (which it's designed for)

Nice OC so far. Wow your stock voltage was 1.372? That doesnt' sound right. That must be with Turbo enabled. What's your stock with Turbo Disabled. If it's around 1.32v, you'll have a lot
of potential in that chip.
