1100T,X4 980 or BD (updated, one last question!) - Page 2

post #11 of 22
I'm in the same boat with my 1055T, stuck at 3.5ghz, but it handled BF3 beta very well. I can't bring myself to upgrade it yet, it does everything I need it to pretty well, and it was cheap!

You can try getting your 1055T to 4Ghz, if not then you -can- try to grab a 1100T if the price difference is small (between you selling yours and buying a used/new one in a sale).
At around 4Ghz it shouldn't be too bad.

I remember having the same issue (being stuck at 3.5GHz) when I got it new.


Do this:

Bus speed at 260MHz
Multiplier at 14x
HT as close to 2GHz as possible.
NB at the maximum
vCore at 1.35V.
CPU/NB volts at 1.325V

DRAM speed/latencies/voltage as close to your specs as possible.

It should boot straight away. From then, progress your speeds up.

At 3.8GHz you'll have achieved a decent enough performance to justify not upgrading for the next couple of years.

980 runs at 3.7 all the time right ? 1100t is only 3.3 that's the difference. You can run a 1090/1100t at 3600mhz without voltage increase if you ever get one.

Buy a Rasa Kit
Max out your 1055's OC
Buy another 6950

You'll be set for BF3

Apparently, according to AMD, the FX8150 is better for modern games than the 2600k (which it beats by 1.5 FPS.....according to them.) I would stick with the 1055t, it's a very good chip really. I would OC it with a better cooler even more, if the chip can be stable.

But honestly, even if there is a bottleneck, I doubt you will notice it that much on a 60Hz 1080p monitor in most games lol. Considering the FX8150 that performs along the same level as the 1100t, didnt bottleneck the 6990, you should be fine.

Get Phenom 955 instead of 980.. Both of them can push 4-4.2GHz with same voltages. But there is HUGE price difference. If you listen to me get 955 for gaming.

Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I just have one more quesiton about the fx8150. Since it excels in newer, heavier-threaded games like battlefield 3, I could definitely see this thing future-proofing my machine. But since in older, lighter-thread games it slows to a snails pace I was wondering what could be done to fix this.

My first guess (and this idea's been thrown around on OCN) would be to disable one core per module, so there are 4 cores and 4 modules. Then, since there are half as many cores being used, the 4 remaining cores could have extra voltage and be pushed even more. I guess, essentially, this is what turbo mode is right? But is there a possibility that the BD is performing horribly in older games like Far cry 2 and crysis 1 because since these gaes aren't heavily treaded, they should be disabling like, say, half the cores and boosting the remaining ones over 4.2Ghz? Or is it already doing that and still failing and not sailing?

If that's the case though, then that's the software issue everyone is talking about? If so, I don't mind manually making these adjustments in AMD overdrive (if BD supports it) before booting up these older games. And even then, in the end, it's all for OLDER games. And I'm also assuming that's why everyone's saying BD is way ahead of its time.

If I got this right, please dont flame me. While this may all seem obvious to you, I'm still learning about CPU architecture and I've got a long way to go.. But this^ is all I need to know to decide on my purchase.

Thanks!

I'm in the same boat as you with a similar config. I'm tempted to play around with the fx-8120 or fx-6100. Right now I'm leaning towards a 1090t/1100t, mostly because it's safe and I only have DDR3 1333 RAM. I'd say at least wait until BF3 is released and we get benchmarks on the retail version of the game.

I got my up to 3.8mhz stock voltage
