AMD FX-8120 Overclocking/Benchmarking - Page 17

post #161 of 195
Subscribed to this thread, would love to see a load of games benchmarked at 1920x1080/1920x1200. I'm currently thinking about upgrading to either an FX-8120 or i5-2500.

I would honestly think about intel, just the power consumption alone is crazy, at 4.8Ghz on prime system was pulling 580watts in a review. It also gets pretty hot too, If your on air just get a good deal on a 1090

If you are like me and wanna buy it anyways biggrin.gif lol (i sold mine though after a few days) I recommend a custom water loop with at least 240mm of radiator MINIMUM, but 360mm worth to have breathing room and honestly what you should get for this cpu and depending on gpu/gpu's your ax750 should do good for your current setup, but 1000watts if your gonna sli/cf

Yeah I've seen the power consumption ;( but I don't think it would be that high while playing Dawn of War 2: Retribution for example. I've got little-no interest in overclocking or cross-firing my HD6870 but I would like Civilization V and the Total War series of games to run smoother than they currently do with my 965, don't think the 1090T would make much difference.

I have been doing a lot of power related reading, the 8150 probably tested worse in that review i linked, i found some as low as 490watts in comparisson to the one i linked. Just keep in mind clock for clock the 8150 is slower then phenom 2, if the game you are playing cant support more cores than 4 your not going to see an increase. There is a review on the 8150 for gaming vs 2500k on hardocp and FX8150 just was way behind, but that was 580 sli and tri sli. Seems like on one gpu they are all similar.

If you go with the 1090 which if you dont overclock your right, probably wont see a change, your 965 i think is 3.4ghz and the 1090 while gaming would stick to 3.2ghz i think, im going by memory. If you overclock the 1090 seems to hit 4Ghz EASILY, i got my 1100 (1090 same) to 4244 and at that clock you would see a difference.

Considering with your motherboard you wouldnt be able to overclock with a 1090 the value in sticking with amd is kinda lost since you need a new mobo and 1090 as the cheapest alternative, that said microcenter has the i5 2500k fot $180 and from what intel guys have told me $150-180 is a good intel board for overclocking, even if you dont right away the intel stock would be faster than bulldozer.

If you root for the underdog get the 8120 and a good cpu cooler

I dont see how someone would be struggling between those two CPU's when a major factor is gaming...

I live in England so I can't buy from a microcenter but I think Intel is looking like the better option :/

Well I love AMD and would rather go with them so if the 8120 wasn't far behind then I'd probably go for it.

I know this is a FX thread but yeah a lot of us put hope in the FX line and built around the hype, luckily you have all the facts and benchmarks in front of you for an "easy" choice, 8 cores doesnt mean anything when a 4core is faster. In a way though I chose the 1100T over intel back in march when SB hit, I knew the 1100 was slower but already then the BD rumors were flying and 6 actual cores vs 4 seemed attractive, Im happy with performance, but being this was my first pc that wasnt intel I kinda wish I just stuck to true blue lol. I have no complaints with the 1100t though, it does all I need and isnt holding me back on gaming, i only play on one 1080 monitor. In the end either proccesor will be fun, but for amd i always recommend phenom ii over FX right now. But if there is no loyalty, intel is best, even the i3 2100 is a decent little cpu for gaming, stock(not an unlocked cpu) its ahead of the x4 980, it takes an overclocked x4 980 to 4.3Ghz to be just 4fps behind in a crysis dx10 (1680x1050 0x AA) benchmark. Multithreading the x4 does better though biggrin.gif Im not sure how it does in dx11 games like BF3 or crysis 2 but if there is a bad side to having a bunch of great affordable cpu's its actually picking one that has the value your looking for.

does anyone knows if the RAM speed limitation applys for BD beeing 1333 MHz officially supported for Phenom II???


is at least 1600 MHz RAM spped official for Bull D?

Bulldozer memory controller supports ddr3 1866mhz... also can be overclocked to egypt and back (seen up to 2200mhz on day to day desktops, not counting breaking memory record speeds on ln2)
