I had 2133x4 sticks working on sabertooth, and chv's do it too, don't know about other boards.

If you can get a sabretooth it's the best bang for buck mobo out there in my opinion

Hey i know this is totally unrelated and a bit off topic but here goes..(dont judge)

I always valued AMD for its ability to deliver fun products with great bang for the buck ratios, and seeing that a 3570k here in portugal is around 70 bucks pricier than an 8320 i was very excited to upgrade to vishera!

So i already had some budgets from a few stores, was deciding whether to get an ud3/ud5 or a sabertooth, etc etc when i walk into another store to ask for pricing details on the 8320..

I walk up to the owner and ask for the 8320 and after a while he asks me "why not go for a 3570k?".. i explained i always liked amd and also intel was quite a bit pricier...

To which he replies.. "lets fix that, ill knock 90 bucks off a decent board that we're trying to phase out and a few off the 3570k so you can have one instead of the 8320"
... ...
After a few minutes and several reviews read on my smartphone i was sold and could not resist :'( and i joined the darkside :'( yes i know, i am ashamed :'(

But i ended up with a 3570k, a ddr3 8gb kit and a MSI Z68A-GD65 (yes i know, z68 but its a gen3) for 20 bucks LESS than the cheapest deal i could find on the 8320 with a ud3 and ram... they even upgraded the bios on the spot so id get IB support straight off the bat..

One of the reasons i wanted to post here, regardless, was to thank everyone that helped me and advised me regarding all the questions i asked on this thread.. maybe one day, who knows, ill build an FX rig too!

Funny how i always frowned upon this sort of practice to derail customers from amd but could not resist it in the heat of the moment :'(

That's a good deal, aint nothing wrong with that especially if your primary use is gaming. Good luck!

Should warn people, this means installing gamefly (which uses that horrid adobe air) and adding creditcard info into an account.

Hey all, I posted another thread that's not getting much attention and I just need a quick question answered.

With my FX-8320, with my motherboard with latest BIOS, and all settings on auto, my CPUs Voltage is going all over the place.

It drops as low as 0.9v, and on average floats around 1.36-1.45v which seems normal. However, sometimes (I'm assuming when turbo core is activated) the voltage will spike up to 1.5, but that's the final threshold, and when it hits 1.5, it only stays there for a short time, then drops down to around 1.36-1.45.

Could these short bursts of 1.5 damage the CPU, or is it only after prolonged exposure to the same 1.5 volts constantly what damages it? I'm also looking for a good voltage to set for stock settings, as well as for the northbridge. Can anyone help me out? Thanks!

Board, bios ver, and revision?
