post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
hey i have a amd fx 4100 zambezi and wanting to know some peoples input on this processor.. i just purchased it 2 weeks ago and already have it overclocked to a stable 4.2 but am wondering what other speeds you guys have been able to push it to? i do have a corsair h50 but just purchased the h100 today for future proofing and updating. : ) soon will be adding a 2gb 7850 and also will it bottleneck that gpu at the 4.2ghz i'm pushing my proc at? please give me input fellas.

On stock cooling legitreviews took it to 4.6ghz. I would imagine you will get around there with a voltage bump, and probably even a little higher depending on the quality of your chip.

had trouble keeping stable at 4.5ghz so bumped down to 4.2 because i'd be plating fallout 3 or crysis 2 and it would freeze.. any ideas as to why it may be doing this? my temps when it crashed was 45-46c so idk what this could be.. set my d.o.c.p on in bios when i clocked it and set my ram frequency to 1600mhz instead of the 1866mhz i had it at.. this is starting to get to me since i can run all day without games at 4.5 and all the speed tests fine, till i want to play games or run prime 95 for 30 minutes under 100% load..

You need a little more voltage on the cpu

I would recommend to under clock the ram to 1600MHz. A similar thing occurred to me, I increased the ram to 1800mhz, and was able to overclock to 4GHz for the 4100, but when I wanted to increase the multiplier, it would act differently, especially with dues ex, so I under clocked the ram to 1600, and was able to reach 4.2ghz with ease, and I could probably go further but the system I have that does use the 4100 is not my gaming system.

to run at 4.5 and ram @ 1866 or above you need more voltage @ 4.5 Vcore will be around 1.425 to 1.45 and your CPU/NB voltage will be in the 1.3 to 1.35 with ram @ 1866 or higher This is a good guilde
