There is only on or off, no advanced options. The BIOS works right in every other regard, so it doesnt bother me.

Ah ok yea w.e works best for stabilty, you might tell ASRock about it. Not sure what they can / will do, but its worth mentioning.

I still havent gotten my FX8120 to work right.


it Idles at Turbo 01 (3.4Ghz, 200Mhz HTTx17).

When it loads all 8 cores it drops to 15.5x200HTT (3.1 Stock Clocks), then dips to 14.0x200HTT (2800MHz).

When it loads only 1 or 2 cores teh 4.0Ghz Turbo 02 State works. 4 cores turbo 01 works.


So when I run Cine Bench, it drops to 3.1 and 2.8 Ghz. 5.09, which is a hair better than the nonSB Corei7 @ 2.8 Ghz (according to cinebench.)

and When I run Single core, the load is bouncing around all 8 cores so it never kicks in any form of turbo.

I dont want to overclock this CPU, so keeping it at stock settings is what im gonna do until the new stepping comes out (pile driver). then If that one is better, use that one and keep this as a spare/hand me down.

I've Disabled CnQ, Thermal Throttling, C1/C6.


One thing i did notice is during all 8 cores in Prime, voltage would start to drop to 1.02v, but as I disabled workers, voltage would go back up.

I think LLC in Bios is set to AUTO.

Any Hints/Tips....................?

Dear Yuji,

i'm really happy to find this thread!
I have exactly the Asrock 880G Pro3 and i'm getting these throttlings when the CPU reaches about 63 degree celsius (= just around 49 degree celsius coretemp). I'm using a Deep Cool Killer Whale Cooler which should really be sufficient - still the throttling occurs even with stock settings @ full load.

The trick with AMD Overdrive didn't work for me...Could you tell me which (other) settings exactly you had to apply for the 880G Pro3 to get it stable without throttling? Thanks in advance!

Attention Gigabyte AM3+ mobo owners.

Recently Gigabyte Tech Support has confirmed that all Gigabyte AM3+ mobos will throttle the CPU frequency even with all power saving options disabled, when the VRM circuit reaches 90C, which is very easy to achieve with any OC'd 8000 series FX processor. Gigabyte has no plans to update their VRM circuit for lower temp operation with FX CPUs so if you are looking for a mobo for an 8000 series FX processor that you plan to OC, especially a new Vishera which can reach close to 5 GHz. on good air cooling, you might want to consider a mobo with a better or different VRM circuit design that doesn't overheat and throttle the CPU.

Could you supply a source for this? TIA
post #18 of 112
^ Gigabyte's 990XA/970A series recently received a string of BIOS updates that added "VRM MOS protection".
post #19 of 112
^^^^^ This is Gigabyte's efforts to prevent VRM burn out at the expense of CPU overclocking - for which they charge a premium and advertise their mobos to be particularly good at OC'ing, which is open to debate. wink.gif This BIOS change to protect the VRM was done some time ago but may not have been documented until recently?

"Could you supply a source for this? TIA"

Gigabyte Tech Support is the source of the confirmation.

^ I think he wanted a link or a screenshot. Anyway, however, the recent BIOS updates do already point out the fact that GIGABYTE has taken the need for VRM safety into account to the next level.
