If I'm wrong please tell me, I', just learning. I had many of the best laptops and said forget this, I want to customize my machine from now on, now I just need to learn how from a genius like you. Please!

At this point in time, it's all about the cooling, and you have 50% more heat to deal with on your 6100 than I have with my 4100. You can take a look at the pdf in my sig for a tutorial, and feel free to ask me questions. I don't have all the answers, as I've only had my chip for a couple months. Hopefully you will be able to teach me a thing or two as well.

I've been extensively testing my FX-4100 for a couple months, but only last night I really started juicing it to see what it can do at 5GHZ, as I'm not exactly impressed with what it can do at 4.5GHZ (compared to my old Phenoms at 4.0GHZ).

I really had to juice it to be stable, with nearly 1.65volts to remain stable. There was obviously quite a bit of heat, with stressed temperatures leveling out about 65'C. (4.5GHZ on 1.5volts barely hit 40'C).

What was interesting was the scaling seemed to improve dramatically at the higher clocks. I would normally get about 20GFLOPS in LinX at 4.5GHZ, but GFLOPS increased to about 28 at 5GHZ. The built in benchmark in AOD soared to 8400 at 5GHZ, compared to about 7500 at 4.5GHZ. System responsiveness in windows "felt" much faster as well.

So what I'm saying is that I think these BD chips were designed to run at much higher clocks than what we see right now. They seem to really like high frequency. I think that as the fab process improves we will see what these chips are really made of, without having to use obnoxious voltages and thermal solutions.

For now, I'm anxious to see what my current generation BD chip can do if I can improve upon my already excellent air cooling.

On a side note, I was also able to further tune my 2x4GB of Ripjaws to 1800 CL7 1T last night.

Below are my FX-8150 settings at 5.0Ghz completely stable. I’m not about to run 6 Hrs of prime to prove this, I know it’s stable, take it or leave it; these settings may help someone. I’ve done my fair share of Prime, Y-cruncher and boat loads of gaming without any issues since it’s been dialed in. This machine pulls 600+ watts at these settings under 8 cores of full load, if someone wants to pay my power bill I might screen-shot a 6 Hr prime. I’ve messed around with 19 X 150 ~230 X 21 etc. but didn’t notice any gains worth losing the simplicity of 25 X 200. I have not even tried to go a hair over 5.0Ghz, I have a decent amount of cooling headroom left but I am more than satisfied with the performance and nice big round number.

I will be getting a rasa360 kit here either this weekend or the next and I will be redoing my overclock. I know i was able to boot into windows at 5.15ghz under 1.5v so i am going to try and see for a 5.2 stable clock. With low ipc and global foundries issues with manufacturing we where suppose to see these chips hit up to 4.7 on air and up to 5.3-5.4 on a good water kit, but issues arise and im sure we will see these clocks soon with new stepping's and with piledriver. I will also disable all but two cores and see what max clock i can get with that.

Hey could you please at least post an image that meets the requirements of option #1. tmonitor might not work but coretemp will most likely show if your throttling under load.
Just Edit your old post and include the option #1 image.

[●] Test Option 1

- OCCT (1+ hour, CPU Test, Large Data Set, All Logical Cores) along with its default monitoring tables (CPU Usage, Memory Used, CPUTIN Temp, Core #0 - 7 Temps, and CPU VCORE in Table and Graphs)
- TMonitor for showing the Frequencies during the test (if tmonitor doesnt work please follow my guide below and use coretemp to monitor your cpu frequencies)
- CPU-Z just because

I really really appreciate it.

Yea, I can give that a go, but I assure you it is not throttling, I would freak out if it was. I'm running a 360MM push/pull radiator and a 240mm push only radiator on a custom loop with only the CPU in the loop on a Ultima XT CPU block. The temps never exceed 54 core ~60ish socket. My V-core1 gets the hottest about 80C at the mosfets on the board.

I was told by HP to repeat tap F10 in order to boot into BIOS but, all I can do from there is view the speed and I have no idea how to change it. Do I need to download a tool to Overclock or am I just in the wrong place on the computer? What I really am praying for is someone to tell me all the steps from start to finish in order to Overclock it from 3.30 to 4.00 GHz and also change the voltage and etc. I have never Overclocked a computer before. All I ever had is laptops with locked processors. This AMD FX-6100 Six- Core is my first unlocked processor. My computer is an HP Pavilion HPE Series or Pavilion h8-1214 PC.338338 The BIOS is a version 7

Is my voltage too low? Should I be giving it more juice?

What's your stability criteria?

How did you tested, i dont want proof i just want to know how you consider it stable.

I can run cinebench at 5.2ghz with 1.55v, but cant play games at 5ghz.

If it's stable, why should you?
