Just popped in to give some encouragement. AMD forever smile.gif

(Yes, I realize I'm running intel right now, but I still want AMD to come back with something really great).

Yeah, I miss my motherboard at times. Have to google for a pic of it and put it as a desktop wallpaper.. tongue.gif

that definitely the case. im at 4.7ghz right now and my idle temp in core temp is about 17 C all day but the idle CPU temp in HWMonitor is 35 C

is 35 C decent for a fx-8120 running at 4.7ghz?

Do you use C&Q / C1E / C6?

every single option in the bios on the same page as the C&Q stuff is disabled. basically anything that would limit the cpu.
post #4845 of 8112
you realize C&Q, C1E, and C6 do not limit the CPU, but allow it to enter a low power state while not under load.

You will get even better idle / low use state temps with those enabled, as well as extend the life of the CPU dramaticly if your computer spends long times idleing.

At 2200 for CPU/NB you should be setting it to 1.2V for stability. 1.2v core voltage seems a little low for 4.2GHz, I'm willing to bet it won't pass prime95.

Not sure what your running at 2000, but try 8-9-9-24.

Sorry I should correct that. I can set my Samsungs to 1866 (9.33 Multi). But in saying that, I can't increase the FSB to overclock them at this setting, for example to 2000Mhz. But if I set an 8X divider and set them to 2000Mhz + they are fine.

Also tried 10X Divider, 11X and 12X (these were added with the most recent BIOS F7)

I was trying forever to get a pair of Samsungs, and when I got them I thought they were defective cause they wouldn't overclock. That's when I tried them from the 8x divider and they were fine.

It may not be the ram that is failing, on my board I need about 1.3v on both the cpu-nb and nb-ht to be stable at over 250 fsb (htt link).

Oh definately not my Ram. It's probably a motherboard issue. I've had the Ram up to 2320Mhz (290 FSB)
It's just strange that it only overclocks with 8x divider. I didn't spend much time trying to go further with it. I'm only using a Gigabyte 990fx UD3 rev. 0.
I don't even have LLC on this board for Overclocking. (Rev. 1. only) But for $100 it gets the job done.

Are you playing with subtimings too? It might be that your board is changing timings when you change multipliers, are subtimings on auto?

If this is the case, write down all your timings with the stable overclock and try manually entering them on the new divider.
