Some help with overclocking AMD FX-8120

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,


I don't know to much about this chip, I hear it has amazing overclocking potential. There is a rumor that the chip clocks to 4.0ghz on stock voltages. Is this true? And if so is it stable? If not can I have he appropriate voltages?

This is kind of off topic, but I have a 700Watt OCZ PSU. Would I have room to overclock a Nvidia 680 card with the 8120? Thanks again guys!

It does i'm @ 4Ghz (1.275V) and 55C in Prime95 and i'm running 2 gpu's during boinc (:
So far it's been very stable and i might mention i'm using stock cooling
