Seeing what the FX4100 is capable of.. Currently at 4.6Ghz OC'd and 30C

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
My specs are:
ASUS Sabertooth 990FX
AMD FX-4100
Corsair H-80 liquid-cooled
Corsair Vengeance DIMM 240-pin - 1600 MHz ( PC3-12800 ) (4x4GB=16GB RAM)
OCZ Modstream 850w
NZXT Phantom White
BFG Nvidia GTX260

Bios - AI Tweaker
OC Manual
AMD Turbo Core off
Multiplier@ 23
Bus@ 200
Vcore@ 1.481
CPU/NB V @ 1.26250
DRAM V @ 1.50625
RAM @ 1600
NB @ 2200
HT @ 2200

I'm wanting to see what this AMD FX4100 is capable of without popping it. What I have overclocked it to is 4.6GHz running extremely stable as cool as 30C. Since I have some room to play with until it's in danger, I'm curious what I can take it up to without hitting a voltage too high that can cause the "bulldozer" to pop. If I'm able to get it to 5Ghz stable I will be very satisfied, which I'm thinking is definitely possible since AMD created these Bulldozers to run very cool allowing the bus to be adjusted to a faster clock rate and still run stable. After doing some research on this forum, many have kept the Bus at it's default 200, and just up'd the multiplier (such as I did above). Now I think it's time to play with both, such as 230 with a 22multi?

Any thoughts or suggestions is greatly appreciated. I would also like to play with my Ram and Graphics card, but not really sure where to go with those two on settings.

Thank You,

A combo of both is your best bet.

What's your load temps under P95?

Load temps remain at 35C (spiked up to 39 for a sec then slowly dropped til the end of benchmark). Though I'm not too familiar with P95 still.
What I'm curious about is how high I can go on voltage without frying the CPU or NB?

What can anyone recommend to set for timings on my memory? and BFG GTX 260?

What are your core temps? Thermal rader only displays the physical sensor on your mobo which isn't accurate at all.

Mako,

Use core temp program so much better i had customer builds that the asus suite II read wrong.


http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

Not saying it read wrong just a better overall program

Oh wow, good to know, I just assumed it was the most accurate due to it being built into the bios. So I installed CoreTemp and this is what I got?
480

What is Tj Max? And why is it showing my CPU only at 9C? There's no way my cooling is that efficient lol

Do you live in the North pole that is really chill. also what do you use the 4100 for do you game with it and how do you like it ?

I mainly use it for gaming with some video editing and music production on the side. I am really impressed on how cool and stable it runs when it's overclocked, it definitely has a lot of potential. As for gaming I run Skyrim on Ultra and it's very smooth, there hasn't been an issue yet though Skyrim isn't as much of a load as other games like BF3 or Batman Arkham City. I will be running a PCMark and 3DMark in a few.

I am really unsure on what to set my GTX260 settings to, and my RAMs timings?
