ASRock 880G Pro 3 HT Bus Speed 1400MHz with AMD FX 8120 by Default?!?!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So is AMD FX 8120 HT Bus Speed Supposed to be set at 1400MHz by default?

Seems to be a bios flaw?

I thought default is supposed to be something more like 2200MHz?

Could this cause stability issues when overclocking?

Thanks for any insight you might have.

I am using that version, fx processors wont even boot without it.

I'm getting the impression its related to cpu nb frequency. Seems that they both should be set to be the same. I have 1333 DDR3 memory so my guess is at least 1333 MHz on these 2 settings, can more help or cause more stability issues?

AMD actually has a Guide to overclocking the fx processors in pdf format. In it they state that the CPU NB should be at least 2x the memory clock so in my case 667 MHz x 2 = 1333 MHz. but they say at least but doesnt mention anything about if it being higher will hurt or help.

Anyone have any additional knowledge on this?
