Cranked out a 4.8GHz Cinebench run on my FX-8320.

So far 4.5GHz is rock solid stable just a touch over stock voltage (1.41v)

Forgot to clear my BD setting and it booted up on those fine and have been dropping the voltage.
So far at 20mins with prime @ 4.5ghz and 1.34V

There is some thing that I want to say to the members who undecided want to look into the "vishera" processors: "JUST DO IT" Do not be scared to try this new revision of the bulldozer architecture. Especially if you did not upgrade your black edition Phenom T1090 & 1100s to the "Zambezi" Fx processors. Look at the stats and you can see that AMD went back to the drawing board and reworked things and has added positive improvement to a new architecture that has great potential. To those who have the chance or already to updated to this Processor I say: you lucky dogs! By the way, I am currently the proud owner of an AMD FX-8150 "Bulldozer"

hello,
i got a bit jelly of the 8350 crowd that turned up and spoilt my day, so i went on and overclock episode.
the first good move was to disable a module on my cpu as my mobo is 6+2 vrm and ment for a 6 core.
i clock the nb and ht on a stable 4ghz setting i have been using for months, got the nb to 2500mhz with 1.275v and the ht setting went to 3250mhz.
i clocked my cpu up to 4.6 ghz no problem with multiplier alone @ 1.464v, i then crept to 4.7ghz @ 1.476 and that also worked.
when i got to 4.8 ghz i got a thermal shutdown or overvoltage.
atm i'm testing my cpu clocked at 4675mhz [233 x 20] 1.464v, will move the bus and nb up after i have run a full stabilty test as iam only half way though.

there is hope if you have a 8 or 6 core fx and a bad mobo combo, just lose a module and that will help alot.

another thing i noticed is the cpu and core temps, the cpu to core temp is only 2-3c difference when set as a 6 core cpu.
thinking that as long as it dont go over 61c on which ever temp.

i removed my case side and rear vent on the cosmos to give better cooling and my cpuu was 55 and core 53.

EDIT:it passed an hour of occt

why would you buy a 8 core cpu if you were going to disable 2 of the cores? You should have purchased a 6 core cpu ;-)

My first bios experience was with the UEFI that was with my Sabertooth and I'm worried a bit that I'm going to have a hard time with the board if I decide to pick that one up.

I have worked with MSI, Gigabyte, ASUS, and BioStar boards. I love the UEFI that MSi has! ASUS is good too, but the Gigabyte just had the standard BIOS and I didn't like it at all. I was able to clock my FX-4100 @5022MHz with the MSi 970A-G46 and I could not get that same chip to clock higher than 4500MHz using the Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3. Maybe I just got a bum board, but I definately prefer MSi. The 990 chip set should allow you to get 5GHz easy (under water of course).

Just my 2cents.gif

Cause that's what Other CPU manufacturers do....LOL. Lets get this one straight....No one gives out of the goodness of their hearts!!!.. The business model is to make the most profit out of the least Overhead, you have. At the moment, AMD is fighting the good fight and on the way they are offering the best value for all the money, time and investment made... Maybe yall have a bit of Romneshya but there way a time an AMD hard core had to pay $600 plus for an AMD chip and "I" was fighting to keep Up. The truth of the matter is that we look for the best value out of every $ spent... ."Best Bang for UR Buck" guess what, AMD with the new Pile Driver offers just that.....By the way... If intel fan boys/girls come out of the wood works to give you a hard time about UR AMD choise just tell them why their new tech cant beat their Original NEHALEM based processor... LOLO. Then IF SO...what is the % gained over NEHALEM..... which is a 3+ year old Architecture.....

its the mobo, i asked but no one told me about vrm's issues, they just keeped telling me to buy and intel i5 2500k, so i ended up with a 6 core mobo.still, better than a cheap intel mobo and a i5 2500k i would have got for the same cash, should imagine i would have no oc at all.

like to say a big thank you to XD 1771 for constantly telling people about the issue before purchase.thumb.gif
