I drop it down to 4.5ghz at 1.375 volts just to prevent the house from being hotter than it already is. ( where it is between 32c-38c) outside, starting in June, and not letting up until early October.

Guess my fear is, i have a good over clocker now. I don't want to swap it out for a piledriver core cpu that sucks at overclocking. So I dunno. Its a gamble.


well the positives are
1) it handles multi GPU better, very well in fact
2) they have improved the L2 cache latency
3) it is much faster
4)uses less energy
5) runs cooler
6)IPC is up 7%

so i guess is that worth the move?

If it makes you feel better, extremely few PD chips can't hit 4.6Ghz, and with the IPC advantage, even that would pass your 4.7Ghz.

but i run at 4.9ghz.

cinebench is over 8. I only reduce its clock speed in the summer time because its hot as heck here in the summer and well I rather have lower room temps. I have a single gpu, so not muti gpu, and I game at 1080p.

The fx bulldozer at 4.5ghz does just fine at these settings, better at 4.9ghz. I just don't see piledriver as a worth while upgrade at this time. 7% ipc is nothing to write home about. I already lucked out and got a 8120 which can do 5.2ghz when i max the voltage out (1.6 in bios 1.54 under load) I just don't see myself doing much better with piledriver. At least not 170$ better anyways.

Running stock 4Ghz, no turbo, 1.3V, stock ram. Only difference is turning on one core per module. Basically no difference. I did get an 8C drop in temps under Prime95, and less voltage variation though.
I think Im going to return the UD5 and get the M5A99FX R2, because the BIOS keeps resetting, and changing the BCLK does nothing. And even with LLC on extreme, even at stock clocks, it droops up to .1v.

sorry if missed posts about this but ***
was it intentional or hardware/software glitch

That was definitely a software glitch.

Im having some bad heat issues. At 4.5 with 1.35V, ASUS AI Suite is reporting 75C running Prime95, while coretemp and HWMonitor say 60C. Either way, thats hot for such a low OC and voltage so far.
Heatsink is mounted fine, MX-2 is applied perfectly.

Using a Zalman AIO cooler, fat 120 rad, cools better then an H80. Have push/pull setup with two 1k RPM CM fans. 65F ambient temps.

That is too hot (60c) for that overclock and that cooler. Are you certain the heatsink is mounted flush? I find if you tighten one side too much before the other, then it wont sit flat on the CPU, because of the wide profile.

Notes: AI Suite is reading the CPU Socket Temp (this can be lowered by cooling the VRM's and putting a fan behind the motherboard, pointed at the socket)

One of the metal nuts in the back plate that the screws go in to for the block some how was spinning, and cut through the plastic it sits in.

Addressed that, remounted, and temps didnt get all that much better. Now running stock 4Ghz no turbo, 1.275V in BIOS, 1.284V load. Was getting 44C in coretemp, 60C in AI Suite.
I changed the 1k RPM CM fan for the stock fan that came with the Zalman. With that at 2k RPM, and I moved the CM fan over by the 8pin header aiming over the VRM heatsink (which is covered by the Zalman rad and two fans on it).
AI suite now says 55C, Coretemp 36C

EDIT: 4.5 @ 1.35V down to 50C.
