I love my 7870, i actually sold my two 6950s and bought it (plus a new ssd). The 6950s sucked allot of power and were so loud. My 7870 is whisper quiet even at 75% fan speed. I run the wholes system on a 500w enermax now. Still maxes out all the games I've been playing in 1080p. (older games, skyrim, New Vegas, etc.)
Very capable card. I bet two of them is phenomenal.

I run the 7870 as well. I had a 6850 previously, and while great, I wanted an update. I can't hear it over my case fans, even if the case fans were whisper silent I wouldn't hear them. The power on the thing is great and it doesn't get insanely hot. I'm curious to know how powerful a sli setup would be compared to getting a 7950 or so.

Based on the price you can buy the fx today it doesn't deserve the stigma. It was a huge marketing error. The cpu today based on todays price does not deserve the slating it receives in real world performance. The future of it will be dependant on the launch price and marketing of piledriver.

Anyone remember the Pentium Pro? It had terrible performance until the software caught up with it. I believe the same will hold true with bulldozer/piledriver except the currfent performance is not terrible. When the software catches up and more products (especially games) are multi-threaded I predict we will see a very satisfying performance increase.

hi guys, new to the forum but would like to ask if anybody can supply me with the optimal settings for the FX8120 on a ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX.

Current Spec:

8Gb corsair (red) 1866mhz
AMD fx8120 using stock cooler.
Power supply Atrix 500T (MUst be at least 5 years old but has never failed me yet
HDD 1 (system) - Maxtor 6 L200M0 SATA
HDD 2 (Storage) - Samsung HD103UJ
CDD 1 - Tsst Corp CDDVDW SH-S223C
Graphics - Geforce 9500GT (1GB)

at the minute my memory timing and voltages appear to be all over the place and it has taken me nearly a w eek to get the system to run without crashing and freezing.

current cpu-id is

the problem i have is i am unsure what setting i need to change in the bios as the values stated are as follows:




i also ran MaxxMem



any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Jez

Crossfire 7870 is faster than single 7970 let alone 7950. Depends on the prices and what willing to pay is suppose. I bought my first 7870 a month ago, bit of a boob considering the then imminent release of the 660ti which led to the amd price cuts. I am very happy with the cards. I have no driver issues and they are not noisy even in crossfire. They run warmer in crossfire though. The uk price on the 7950 has fallen to small difference between certain models of 7950 and 7870. If I was buying today I would get 2x7950 simply for the 3gb vram over two. The scaling in crossfire is great my graphics score has doubled in 3d mark 11 and I cants say I have noticed any micro stutter either. Highly recommended

I wouldn't recommend a heavy overclock, or any overclock for that matter with the stock cooler...

You need better cooling to raise the voltage.

I had loads of problems with this board over volting after blue screens whilst overclocking.You had that problem? It tried volting my cpu at 1.65 once. The voltages go crazy. Auto settings on cpu and cpu/nb do not work for me at all. They have to be manually set therefore also rendering the offset mode useless. He needs to set them at stock manually then go with the multiplier from there. Stock air maybe 3.8 if lucky before thermal ceiling.

The over volting is your LLC being on auto
post #6189 of 8112
Thanks truckerguy I worked that out after a few crashes but that whats happening to the poster with the fx I think. After crashing he is overvolting. Needs to set the main things to manual.
