FX 8120 wont use turbo

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So i just got this to replace my Q9400 setup and man it screams! 3.6Ghz STABLE. the problem is the turbo will not turn on. not really familiar with AMD chips since i normally go intel but i saw this one and i was just drooling. lol.

Also, it seems to cut the speed to 1.5Ghz RANDOMLY... i mean its just sitting there and im watching the graphs. Im pretty sure i have all the temp throttling off along with spread spectrum. turbo is set to 16.5 which would give me 3.9Ghz but it never kicks in...

Any ideas?

APM was off but since i rebooted, it hasnt dropped so i dont know what was causing it but it hasnt done it now. Now how do i fix the turbo?

Also, is it normal for it to take about 6 minutes to do 1 loop in LinX with ALL ram? i know that makes the problem massive but it seems like its running slower than my old Q9400 which was a handicapped chip. anything over 2.86Ghz caused crashes
