Bulldozer Overclocking Guide (Performance Scaling Charts, max OCs)LN2 Results coming! - Page 9

post #81 of 228
Not an owner of Bulldozer and never will be and I recommend everyone else to do the same. However, this is a great guide for those of you who bought a Bulldozer already to play with and practice their OC skills on a new architecture.

got 4.9 long enough to cpu-z validate on the stock cooler. I don't have any other cooler right now and am currently pretty close to stock clock because even at 4.4ghz cpuid hardware monitore is reporting 80+ cpu core temps with one minute of prime and that seems way too high. what temp is safe?

awesome guide I now have overclocked my system running an 8120. If I actually followed everything in the guide I could probably squeeze more performance out of it but I am too busy for a while to do everything and my Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 motherboard really doesn't like when a voltages drop too low. It won't post and I have to manually clear cmos. it is fine when I go to high it reverts back to the previous settings with no prob but it has a problem with undervolting. My FSB I couldn't seem to get to 220 so I left it at 215. I used the max voltages I thought were safe and then set the fsb and the cpu clock as high as I could and then started reducing each of the voltages till they couldn't pass the first couple tests on P95. so now my cpu is 4192 MHz, my memory is 1720MHz. my CPU core voltage is 1.4125 but it seems to vary in actuality between 1.34 at full load to 1.38 at idle so I think it should be safe. the cpu nb vid is 1.3375V, the NB is up to 1.9V and my memory is 1.65V. the memory is Corsair Vengeance memory and is stock 1.5V but 1.65 seemed to be commonly used for a lot of people's 24/7 OC with this memory so I think it should work all right. do these voltages seem safe and does this seem like my system is overclocking all right or am I completely wrong on how I did this

suppose I should mention that my cpu can go higher I'm pretty sure but the xigmatek loki air cooler I got can't keeep the temps down. as it is it has been running p95 for 1.5 hours now and 2 cores have hit 59 although most of the time the cores are 56-57. will this be fine for an 8 hour p95 run or do I need to back the processor down a step again. I'm honestly overclocking just to see what I can get out of this computer I don't really have anything I use that actually makes this thing break a sweat at stock settings

Very nice guide thank you Sin 082,

may i ask while you were OC'ing this chip, what bsods did you get and what did you do to fix them?

And what voltages did you use for your 5ghz oc, and what speeds for cpu/nb ht link etc.

Right now i'm at 4.7ghz, but i thunk i can go further, is just that i'm not so wise in OC'ing.

I can do cinebench at 5.2ghz with 1.55v core.

I'm sure i can do more 5.3, 5.4 cine but i didnt want to raise the voltage.

Does cpu/nb voltage helps getting stable at higher Core frequencies? Even with cpu/nb at stock?

Great guide REPS+ I'll be using this guide when i get my 4100 with the UD5 next week, will post up my results for scaling on the low end BD chip as well, what do you guys think, post results here in a thread already dedicated to BD overclocking or should i make my own?

I have a FX 6100 and find when changing the cpu freq from say 200 to 220 @ 18x the system will not boot.
Only manual clock I get to boot is 200 @ 16.5 = 3.3 ghz and ram registering 1872 which is a stock setting. I manually set the mem clocks to 9-10-9-28 2t as per gskill for 1866. I was thinking maybe the power supply was causing this but at stock settings, including video cards, I can play BF3 on auto settings with no problems for a couple hours or more.


My pc specs
Amd FX 6100 3.3ghz / air cooled.
Asrock 970 Extreme3 with current bios 1.2
Gskill 4g, 2 paired sticks ripjaw series 1600 / 1866 oc
Crossfirex Sapphire 6790's cards.
WD Black HD 500g
500 watt power supply.



Thanks

Ryan

What brand of powersupply, BD is notorious for pulling alot of power, if you have a generic PSU it may not be properly feeding all the components.
