My understand of this is that it can help with stability.. but too much is bad.

^^ that is how i view it, and its worked out so far.

I am running my 8320 off the saberkitty.
And it seems that the volt wall is around 4.8ghz for me... and I DO want to get past that. biggrin.gif

My cooling is okay with it I guess.
Temps with 4.8ghz are around 54 socket and 42 on the cores.
That is with 1.46v

I agree. Your holdibg your system back with only single channel RAM. In BF4 using dual channel i saw more than a 20 FPS increase compaired to single both at @2400MHz

the local Charter box keeps getting backed into by the neighbors, the box is at the corner end of their driveway and they back into all the time. Hell, it even has a permanent lean to it. So until I move or the neighbors learn to drive, I won't switch.

I've been there man. I got Comcast seven months ago, and you know what my internet was before that? I had DSL with Earthlink, 6mbps down, 768kbps up.

What's your secret? (Or should I ask, what did Comcast screw up)

They didn't screw up. Actually, aside from a rough patch in the first month when I was still trying to figure everything out (returning 2 HD cable boxes and get a cable card for a Tivo), they have not given me anything to complain about.

About 7 months ago I signed up for "HD Preffered Plus", which is their 170 channel, 50/10, and home phone thing. This was the fastest internet they offered in my area at the time. Promo for the 1st 12 months put the bill at ~$160/mo, going up to $180 after that.

A few days ago when I was checking up on the bill, making sure everything was as it should be, I noticed they were offering two plans with 105/20, which I wanted since day one (Yay! biggrin.gif ). The plans were more expensive ($210 and $255) but also came with more TV channels, which I didn't care about, but $50 more per month was worth the faster internet to me since I had just finished getting all my AT&T stuff updated and saved a ton** of money there.

So I call up their Sales people and start asking about an upgrade. She says that she sees the plan, but the site is outdated, it was only $210 for January and is $220 for February ( frown.gif ). This was getting closer to the "eh" border, so I asked if it was possible to upgrade just the internet. No harm in asking, right?

She look at the account, and sounds suprised when she tells me "Well the computer says that for the plan you have now, we can upgrade you to Extreme Internet (105/20) for just a $3 plan change cost, and no extra charge per month". I ask if that means a free upgrade, because wording is tricky with sales people, and she responded "Besides that one-time $3 fee, yes". I ask if I need anything or if it will just update in the next 24 hours or something, she responds "You should not need any new equipment, the speed should just update itself in the next 48 hours".

I said to go for it. About 30 seconds later while I was waiting, the phone call dropped. Not a big deal, it happens, especially in big call centers. One of us might have hit a button or something, right?

I call back, and get a different guy. On a hunch, I go to take a speed test. While explaining to the guy that the call dropped and that I was talking to someone and would like to be directed back to them, I glance at my screen. My jaw hits the floor; Speedtest is showing well over 100mbps, climbing to 120. I ask the guy to give me a second, and check my router. Connection uptime had reset. They updated my internet speed (and thus the router my phone goes through) while I was still on the phone with them, and that is why my call dropped.

Told him never mind, what I called for earlier was solved, asked him to tell the lady thanks and to have a nice day and hung up. Decided to test out my new speed, and downloaded Sants Row IV, a 10GB game, in 10 minutes, thus confirming my new speed.

** (Click to show)
New plan with AT&T did the following:
1) Remove all existing 2-year contracts.
2) Update all (5) lines to the "Next" plan.
- 2a) This reduced the cost per-line from $40 to $15 (-$125/mo).
3) Upgraded from 6GB shared plan to 10GB.
- 3a) This increased the plan cost from $90 to $100.
4) Applied a discount due to where my family works.
- 4a) This dropped the plan's price by 10% (-$10/mo)
5) Got two new HTC One's.
- 5a) This added $30/mo for each phone (+$60/mo)
6) Traded in two Inspire 4Gs for my new HTC One's.
- 6a) $100 off the bill for each. (-$200)
7) Removed Insurance plan on my phone since it's indestructible anyway.
- 7a) This lowered the bill by $10 (-$10/mo)


END RESULTS:
Upgrade: 6GB -> 10GB
Two paid-for HTC One's
Bill down $200 this month.
Bill down $85 per month.

The moral of the story here is when you get a plan with any company, stay updated. They are upgrading their infrastructure, and their deals do improve over time. Check up on them every few months, see if you're overpaying or can get something better for the same price.


And that's how my morning went today. biggrin.gif

Temps with 4.8ghz are around 54 socket and 42 on the cores.
That is with 1.46v

the real curveball of that is.. the TOO MUCH point is variable chip to chip.

like madgoat said he reduced his VDDA.

I've not noticed a thermal difference worth mentioning.

I ask if that means a free upgrade, because wording is tricky with sales people, and she responded "Besides that one-time $3 fee, yes". I ask if I need anything or if it will just update in the next 24 hours or something, she responds "You should not need any new equipment, the speed should just update itself in the next 48 hours".

I said to go for it. About 30 seconds later while I was waiting, the phone call dropped. Not a big deal, it happens, especially in big call centers. One of us might have hit a button or something, right?

I call back, and get a different guy. On a hunch, I go to take a speed test. While explaining to the guy that the call dropped and that I was talking to someone and would like to be directed back to them, I glance at my screen. My jaw hits the floor; Speedtest is showing well over 100mbps, climbing to 120. I ask the guy to give me a second, and check my router. Connection uptime had reset. They updated my internet speed (and thus the router my phone goes through) while I was still on the phone with them, and that is why my call dropped.

Told him never mind, what I called for earlier was solved, asked him to tell the lady thanks and to have a nice day and hung up. Decided to test out my new speed, and downloaded Sants Row IV, a 10GB game, in 10 minutes, thus confirming my new speed.

New plan with AT&T did the following:
1) Remove all existing 2-year contracts.
2) Update all (5) lines to the "Next" plan.
- 2a) This reduced the cost per-line from $40 to $15 (-$125/mo).
3) Upgraded from 6GB shared plan to 10GB.
- 3a) This increased the plan cost from $90 to $100.
4) Applied a discount due to where my family works.
- 4a) This dropped the plan's price by 10% (-$10/mo)
5) Got two new HTC One's.
- 5a) This added $30/mo for each phone (+$60/mo)
6) Traded in two Inspire 4Gs for my new HTC One's.
- 6a) $100 off the bill for each. (-$200)
7) Removed Insurance plan on my phone since it's indestructible anyway.
- 7a) This lowered the bill by $10 (-$10/mo)


END RESULTS:
Upgrade: 6GB -> 10GB
Two paid-for HTC One's
Bill down $200 this month.
Bill down $85 per month.

The moral of the story here is when you get a plan with any company, stay updated. They are upgrading their infrastructure, and their deals do improve over time. Check up on them every few months, see if you're overpaying or can get something better for the same price.


And that's how my morning went today. biggrin.gif

Makes me want to check to see what they can do for me.. not sure if they "offer" that speed where I am at the (" ") are because I know its a fiber bone straight to the box... theoretically I could have gigabit internet... but you know how dem companies are

Is my CPU socket temp not too high ? apparently according to HWinfo max core went to 62.5 I'm surprise as during my tests I haven't seen it go above 58 in Aida sounds good to me tongue.gif.


I got one other little question, I noticed I got some CPU frame time spikes in BF4,I wonder if it's just the game badly optimized or what, because on the techreport.com review of a FX-8350 the frame times are very low for this game, I was playing a 64 map though so maybe that's why, it's not constant but I can see a few frame drops/frame time spikes per map, with everything on low.

I know I need to upgrade my graphic card, will do that as soon as possible ! but the frame time spikes seemed to come mostly from the CPU, even though the usage never go above 90 on any core, but I'll have to do more testing, I was wondering if maybe it was my RAM timings I gonna try to tweak that.

EDIT: put my default rame timings 9-11-11-31 gonna try now -> 10 mn operation locker 64 cq not a single frame time wohoo I hope it will good now =).

Not sure what cpu package is..ive not got it listed..but other users screens show for the cpu package and cpu (cpu 0) to be identical.... may be a concern looking at yours..especially the 90+c max temp..
cpu 0 = cpu
cpu = socket (which seems ok at 77c - maybe a little fan on back of mb will help there)

Yeah, I Added a Slim Fan using Zipties and tape blowing onto the back of my socket, dropped my socket temp by over 8^C

Will try to get some Pix this weekend.
