AMD FX (Bulldozer) Owners Club! - Page 615

post #6141 of 8112
I am running 12.8. 12.7 cap 3

no issues. Then again i don't play dirt showdown.


The factory overclock on the gigabyte 7870's is weak. The gpu overclocks well. I'm running 1200 core on both cards and 1400 mem. Same cards. Gigabyte 7870 wind force.

No mods to the cards other than antec formula 6 (nano diamond) thermal compound , instead of the stock crap. I am still on a fence about using copper shims on the memory and the same thermal compound, or just to get higher quality thermal pads. Leaning towards the first option. Doubt will make much a difference just something that is cheap and fun to fiddle with.

Also if you overclock using a different utility , then you must turn off AMD overdrive in the catalyst software. I personally use sapphire trix.

Congrats with your oc`s. The first gpu of mine will not go over 1170 core but was stable at 1450 vram. not tried to oc the second one yet. Just arrived this morning. I did have overdrive turned off and tried after burner, asus gpu tweak and overdrive to no success with the first gpu. Think will stay stock for a while now. Im on 12.8 and 12.7 and all running fine except dirt showdown. I don't play it, it came free with my first gpu and is good for a bench.

Just tested the gpu`s oc with 5 loops of dirt showdown on ultra(if oc going to fail will fail during that bench) and then directly into 3dmark11 again. Clocks @1150 vram at 1350 with +20 power. got a better score but I think the difference is minimal considering extra heat. Hit 72C gpu.

Hi guys, i recently got FX-4100 CPU, need a bit of advice.

Is it possible on FX CPU's to turn off DCT Unganged Mode (turn on Ganged mode)?

Motherboard is MSI 870s-x45 (FX), as you can see from BIOS that option is grayed out.

I've tried, other versions of BIOS (now at latest), changed memory settings to "manual" instead of Auto, latencies etc. Nothing works so far.

So, is it possible for FX processor to change memory mode? Anything i missed?

Yea I am smile.gif. I love microcenter!

If I had the extra 150$ I'd get the 3570k with the crappy mobo to hold me over (if I had an extra 350 I'd get the 230$ 3820 and a gene-z from the egg )but money is super tight and this is just a place holder system until I get my parts back. I think a friend has a 3870x2 that I can use so that just shows how desperate I am tongue.gif.

With the 6100 and mobo (as long as it works im happy @ stock) I can get a cheap case and decent PSU with a 5770/6770/7770 and give it to the living room for HTPC purposes biggrin.gif.

It's always been frustrating that MC doesn't carry the Asus ROG boards redface.gif.

edit:

I've been contemplating the 8120 bundle($139) but also the 1045t bundle($89). too, but I figured the 6100 bundle ($109) bundle would be the best minecrafting for the cheap.


any opinions guys? cheaper is definitely better!

edit edit edit:
bundle link

no OC'ing, no money for HS or better board tongue.gif.
