Asus M5A78L-M LX PLUS Question? - Page 5

post #41 of 49
According to someone else on these forums the stock voltage for the fx-6100 it will be between 1.2-1.4v at stock frequencies. Overclocks that I have read for that processor seem to target a constant overclock voltage between 1.2 and 1.4. If you are exceeding 1.4 then you are putting your hardware at serrious risk of breaking.

It was set at 1.19375 ?

So everything you said I have set correctly except the voltage is at 1.1937 , can I go higher? Will it become more stable
post #44 of 49
Depends on what stability issue your're having.

Now it won't run right , I set everything up like you said , but as soon as I try to play a game it re starts about 15seconds in , I'm watching the cpu and its not throttling and the temp only about 54 Celsius at max

I am so confused and getting frustrated

Post your hwinfo temps at idle and load... so we can see what it's going up to... I too had throttling immediately at load after 1.375v... Now they are nice and cool... still can't overclock much but need to know proper 4Ghz timings is all... It's all memory timings

Here I was curing the thermal glue.. unplugged fan let heat up then plugged back in over and over... it's much cooler and no throttling now... Not to mention quicker without throttling... will get scores sometime haha

My temps stay low but similar to yours. My voltage is much lower than what you're showing. With four cores disabled I'm able to run the remaining cores stable at 1.2250 CPU Over Volts. Which @ 4.4Ghz is really low. But its also how I got everything running nicely, as I get zero throttling with the voltage this low. I get a bit of throttling @4.5Ghz which requires 1.26250 Volts. So I stopped using that setting 4.5Ghz over the last year. But what you are showing (assuming your throttling is minimal) is probably fairly sane for your CPU.

One thing I started researching this year is which of the past AMD chips have 8 or 4 Cores, but have pairs that share FPS. Which gets into a complicated discussion about how these chips might run optimal for games. As most people know very very few games can make use of more than 4 threads. Now with most boards running FX chips you almost always run into VRM overheating issues. So you run into the question should you run less cores with higher clockspeed, or run more cores with lower clockspeed.

It seems like the obvious answer would be higher clockspeed. But by disabling cores you really are disabling paired core modules. Which means you are giving up shared FloatPoint schedulers and some shared L2 and L3 cache. (An eight core processor only has four shared float point schedulers). In past windows OS's this was moot because windows didn't schedule the AMD threads correctly anyway. But currently a fully patched windows 7 and windows 10 will schedule tasks across the first core in each module first and then follow with the second core in each module (making full use of each FPScheduler and L2/L3 memory) The question then becomes is it worth losing 0.8 to 1.0 GHz to enable all 8 cores in order to pickup full use of the FPS and L2/L3. The problem is 800 to 1000Mhz is considerable power, and the third and forth thread in most games only bounces in sometimes.

Anyway more food on the fire for how complex CPU consumption is with these processors and motherboards.

What makes the biggest difference is the HT/ NB clocks on AM3 AMD...

this CPUz is 2,750Mhz HT/ NB
