AMD FX-8120 Overclocking/Benchmarking - Page 18

post #171 of 195
You should overclock your memory. I read somewhere the performance actually scales with the ram. I saw someone do 2600mhz, the processor benchmarked some amazing points. Perhaps the cpu is limited by the system ram?

I do not know where you are looking? just go into fx owners thread and look at their memory speeds, most are anywhere from 1900mhz-2100 mhz. I dont believe in "proving" things to people on here i mean its really childish. U either take my word for it or dont, simple as that?

calm down, I'd just said thanks for the info, and nothing more

besides, what people gets in the overclock it does not mean is oficially supported by the hardware...

and that's why I said thank you for getting to the point insted of replying at what you see written in the net.


and I quote myself " I did not see something clear AS YOU SAID IT"...

Relax, he's just tired (as are many others) of dealing with the intel fanboys that come in these forums and bash AMD. When in defensive mode, it is quite easy to mistake a non hostile comment for a hostile/sarcastic one.

I can see that, this is really no place to be fighting for things like that...

Last post was a while back. So i suppose ill post.
Ive been watching this thread as i have purchased a 8120 and overclocking was something i was looking to do. Here is a little info about my build...
Fx 8120
16gb Corsair Vengeance (4x4)
Gigabyte 550ti oc ed. (900mhz oc'd to 970) 1gb card
Gigabyte 970a-D3 Mobo
Cooled with a Astec 510lc 120mm Water cooler
and Wrapped in a Black Azza Orion Red Led case

Ive been getting some solid results with the cpu ocd to 4.1ghz(stock voltage) and am wondering why all the hate. The power draw isn't a issue (i have a 600Watt psu) that is doing just fine with Stability Overnite running Prime95 not getting hotter than 60c on the cpu (mostly around the 50-55c fans not at max) it runs SWOTR max settings at ~60 fps in high pop zones runns BF3 on ultra (playable online if someone can tell me how to check fps i will) and runs dirt 3 like a champ.

Have another build as well (my girls that we threw together)
Fx-6100
16gb Corsair Vengeance
Gigabyte 550ti oc ed (same as above)
Asus M5A97 Mobo
Cooled with air by a 500 series Coolermaster fan
Wrapped in a Coolermaster Black Storm case
650 watt corsair PSU

Havn't done any testing with hers yet will by the end of the week

What's a safe vcore and temp? I put mine at 25x200=5Ghz at 1.5375v and it craps outs on me. It works fine at 4.5Ghz (22.5x200) but temp goes all the way to 83+. This is on Gigabyte 970A-UD3 with 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 memory.
post #179 of 195
Safe vcore : 1.55V max (beware LLC settings) and temps around 60°. Anything above ~65° for a few seconds/minutes will make the CPU throttle (multiplier down to 7X till it reachs 40°) and screw performance.
Mine's 1.52V @4.9ghz (crosshair V and g skill ripjaws X pc12800). Temps don't go above 61° (H100 push/pull with 4 scythe GT-AP14).

Hello all, this is my first post here on Overlclock.net, been reading the thread and had a few questions.

The first and most important would be....

Why at stock speed and voltage do I get a BSOD when running prime95? I will open Prime95 and it will run for about 5-10 seconds and bang! Computer locks up and then a BSOD. I can use Y-Cruncher and also the AMD stress test without any problems at all.

My idle temps are 15C and 30C max full load.

Ive OC'd to 3.8 on stock voltage and played games(Tribes Ascend, WoW, SWToR, MW3) and encoded videos with no problems. I'm starting to think that maybe Prime95 is bugging out?


My build is

AMD FX 8120 (non-stock cooler, I'm using the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO)
Asus M5A97
Kingston HyperX 8 gigs 1600mhz
Evga Geforce 560 GTX 1gig Superclocked
Cooler Master GX 750w Bronze PSU
Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.
