AMD HAF-932 Bulldozer Build - Page 14

post #131 of 154
Try 250 FSB x 18.5, if the FX is running cool enough try 250 x 19 multiplier, that should bring up your 3dMark11 scores. I would recommend keeping it under 1.5v on the CPU to be safe, watch your temps!

Good Luck

Yeah I know and since I do have three 7970's I have wanted to test it out, but I don't have a 3-way crossfire bridge. I am planning to check with a friend of mine to see if he has one I could borrow.

Thanks for the tip - I will give that a try and let you know how it works thumb.gif

UPDATE: I tried both settings you suggested, but couldn't get it stable - I might have to tweak voltage more, I had it up to 1.4v

Please see my stable volts below for my fx-8120 with my Sabertooth 990fx.

4.5ghz 1.4v
4.6ghz 1.45v
4.75ghz 1.5v

I cannot get anything stable above 4.75ghz, but I can run benches at 4.8ghz /1.53v. With these chips I notice that most people try to keep it under 1.45v to be safe. See it you are stable at 4.5ghz at 1.4v without any FSB and slowly build your overclock from there. In my experience you will need to add some FSB in order to be stable at high overclocks with the fx chips. I am going to buy the fx-8350 when it comes out that is why am pumping so much volts into this chip if it dies I still have my 1055T.

Good Luck

Thanks for the tips - I will play around with it and see how high I can push it and keep it stable. I am also planning to get the 8350 soon, so am not to worried about stressing my 8150 too much

My friend hooked me up with a good deal on 32GB of Corsair Dominator Platinum, so I decided to go for it:

Not yet, but I am still planning to. Just waiting on the CPU - I will be sure to post an update once I get it.
