That's decent for a 6100. I had one in February and IIRC I topped out at 4.6GHz.

Hell I keep my 8150 @ 4.2GHz because it runs really low temps and I fold 24/7 with it.

Heres my Rig that i built 4-5 months ago
Gigabyte GA 990FXA UD7 mobo
AMD FX8120 guaranteed overclock Just got it sat at 3.6GHz at mo
16Gb Corsair Vengeance LP CL7 ram
GeForce GTX 260 216 (at mo still hunting graphix card)
Western Digital Caviar Black 64Mb Cache SATA3
LG BluRay Rom DVDRW
OCZ ZT 750W
All in an Aerocool xPredator White
Still want for it:-
Crucial M4 RealSSD 256Gb
and either a GTX670 or a GTX660Ti
Anyway nice to find you chaps Happy Bulldozing!

nice! you know you can most likely OC that chip a bit more if you've got decent cooling. Mine hit 4GHZ on auto everything, except multiplier thumb.gif

It really depends on cooling.

You really have to be able to keep the cpu under 50c full load for best results. When your pushing 1.5-1.6 volts to it it becomes a mini nuclear reactor, and its hard to keep cool.

I can do 5.2ghz on my 8120 at 1.55 volts. Bench marking only really no way i would run that everyday.

Biggest advice to novice ocers, and the fx. Keep temps under 50c, and keep northbridge/hypertransport no higher than 2200. You will also need to increase Northbridge voltage. Monitor temps on the northbridge, they run hot (well at least with the 990fx) put a fan, or aftermarket cooling on them so you can push the volts.

i cant get in to windows @ 5ghz with what i ahve tried i am going to keep trying cuz i know i can atleast get a cpu-z cuz it gets t windows loading screen and just restarts but my ram is a limit for me as it is only 1333 and cant do better then 1499 and it needs 1.72 to run that so i clearly dont. as said below my nb is only @ 40c tops 43c. but i dont have a huge oc on it yet.

Thanks i can do 4.0 @ 1.387 cpu-z load volts but once i get higher it wants the volts to it i have corsair h100 push/pull with push being Scythe Ultra Kaze and pulll being h100 stock fans till i make sure that i can fit 38mm fans on inside top of haf x.

.What kinda volts does the 8150 take for that and i have been folding on it with only 5 cores as my 7870 needs 1 core or my fx runs 4 mins slower and the tmeps have not gone over 49c on the core and 44c on the socket and my nb is only @ 40 but i have a 92mm CoolerMaster fan that came with the tx3.

Thanks man! Yeah i have had a little more out of it without fiddling with voltages or anything, but i'm quite happy with it at 3.6 at the minute. i got the chip £50 cheaper than an 8150 at the time I got a Phantom Knight Zero on it for cooling it has direct heat pipe contact and a single 2000rpm 120mm fan biggrin.gif

Hello..

Just sent my PM to join. (FX8120 - ASRock 990FX Extreme3) So it's likely been asked before, but is there any advantage for using the MB overclock settings over the AXTU software from AS Rock?

And, once we have that one cleared up - Help me please.. (Ideally, a nice list of what all the settings should look like for a reasonable overclock will be suffice) thumb.gif

I have my 8150 set at 4.2. It runs around 44C folding 24/7. I let the kids and wife use it mostly so I dont get much tweaking time on it. I just modded the case for my i5 and have been fine tuning the overclock on that rig all weekend.

It is much safer to overclock within the BIOS, so you can see proper boot sequence and voltage regulation.
Overclock in Windows can crash and cause a loss of files and corrupt windows, whilst in BIos if you set a voltage and it doesn't boot you are still safe.

The first time I tried Overdrive on my FX it resulted in a 1.55v spike in voltage and all I did was increase the multi +1.

Seriously.... Wow
Thats is the max V for my 955, for a 32nm i wonder what max V is prob 1.4 or so.
