The 4.6 GHz OC peaks at around 55 C (Prime95 gets hotter). This is ofcourse core voltage, but the socket temps wont go alot higher than the 61 C mark either. Also I noticed case airflow is very important. When I upgraded from my old case (really ****ty one) to my new one my temps went down 10 C, which I have never seen happen before with any other chip...

those temps are high

my 8120@ 4.945ghz 1.45 volts never eclipses 42c. Then again I am water cooled ;-) Socket temps a tad higher.

Turn all power save features off and put load line calibration (LLC) to very high

Also turn off the turbo core technology or whatever it was called

Hey, guys. Does anyone know if Unigine Valley slightly CPU bound? Mine R7970 Lightning GPU load never reaches 99% (most of a time 96-97% with rare drops to 87-89%) CPU AMD FX-8120 4,4 gHz

Guys, I need some advice. I currently have an HD 6670 in my machine, which is getting on in age now. I use a 17'' monitor at the moment and so far the HD 6670 has been fine. Would I get better performance if I got myself an FX-6300, and used it with my current card for now, or if I got an A10-5880K to crossfire with my HD 6670?

You just answered your question dude... Crossfire it with a 5800k

Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3 (v1.2, latest bios) with Corsair DDR3 2X4GB 2133 memory

Problem.
Replaced the AMD 945 with the FX-4170 (today), FX-4170 works fine at default setting.
When I try to change the memory timings from 6.66 to 8.00 and reboot, the motherboard gives me an "overclocking" error and has to reset it's self back to 6.66.
Not sure what the problem is as my 945 CPU had no problem running memory (2133) at 8.00 (1600Mhz)
I'm I missing some CPU setting I need to change to match with memory timings?
Or does the FX4170 not like working with 8.00 memory setting?

I was hopeful to get the memory to 1866.

I have a lot of issues with my memory clocking as well. I think the design for the memory controller on the 4170 might play a bit factor in it.

Thanks. The only thing that worries me about the A10 is potential problems with a more powerful Graphics card later on.

You can overclock it. Pretend it's a FX-4300.

I have a fx4170 as well with 2x4gb of 2133mhz mushkin redline ram that I run at 2288mhz no problem. Im on a asus crosshair v formula z board tho. Actually kinda curious what a 2400mhz kit would do. G. Skill rep said he doesnt think their 2400 kits will run at 2400mhz.
