Gigabyte has advised that they do not intend to update their AM3+ mobos to accommodate full overclocking of the FX-8000 series CPUs, which is a shame as Vishera is likely to reach close to 5 GHz. on good air cooling with a proper mobo and VRM circuit.

This post has been helping me a ton in identifying my issues in some games. When I disable thermal throttling, my problems with lag in games goes away. The thing is though, as soon as my temp hits 61 it automatically shuts down the whole computer with it off.
Do I need a new cooling system, I am willing to buy a liquid cooling system if necessary, but I wanted to make sure that was the best approach, especially since my temperatures don't seem to go much over 60, it even says they are lower in most other temp monitoring programs.

Is there nothing else I can do?
I have N68-VS3 FX Motherboard with latest bios
AMD 8120 FX bulldozer processor running at default clock settings.

Really appreciate any help, I've had this problem for months now and only finally realized it was a throttling problem, I am only starting to learn about computers.

I'm going to bump this, it really needs to be sticky

just to clarify, I was having issues with my FX8120 on Launch day.

About a year later I tested before I upgraded to FX8350

In CineBench

6.74 FX8350 @4.0 Ghz w/ Power Options OFF (APM OFF, Turbo OFF)
6.64 FX8350 @4.0 Ghz w/ Power Options Off (APM and Turbo On)

6.35 FX8350 @4.0 Ghz w/ Power Options On

6.34 FX8120 @4.0 Ghz w/ Power Options Off

5.04 FX8120 @3.1 Ghz w/ Power Options Off
4.98 FX8120 @3.1 Ghz w/ Power Options On

** Power Options OFF = No Suspend, C1E, C6, CoolNQuiet Etc.

In Tests I noticed even with Power Savers Off, The APM and Turbo Core would Still down clock the Chips.

Idling @ 4^C, Browsing Net @ 10-14^C, Load WIndows @ 25^C, Cinebench @ 34^C

Difference in Power at Idle is 88w vs 103w, It's also a bit warmer today so the CPU will idle a bit higher, no to mention it's faster.

I'm Using some older Zalman TIM that I had lying around (silly me didnt order any), When I order more parts for my brother I'll get some AS5 compound.

So now I got a 8120 on another board running 4.0Ghz, and it's only about 8% slower, but in games, there's no difference.

Is this what you mean by throttling ?

post #27 of 112
I would like to add to the LLC.

I have the ASRock 970 Extreme3, and if I understanding LLC correctly, ASRock actually have the settings inverted.

When I run all six cores I have to disable LLC to make sure there will be enough voltage going through at load, but with 2 cores I just turn it on to save power during load.

Also my mobo is horrible at LLC, it will increase my voltage by as much as 0.05V with it disabled.


I think you should add an option of "other" to the poll, because my CPU throttles due to insufficient power supplied from the mobo (cannot be fixed with more voltage).

Weird. Did you turn off the Turbo Core in the BIOS?

Your temps are okay, and I dont think it will only throttle this little when your CPU or mobo decides to throttle.


AMD turbo core controls can be very glitchy even without pre-applied OC. Once I achieved 5.2Ghz with 1.7 Volts of power for a split second by messing with the turbo core controls. Then it crashed and burned. (It didn't burn)

Core Performance boost is the same as Turbo core?
