I know these things generally should go unsaid on an AMD enthusiast thread, and I might take some heat for it, but we all know it's true no matter how much we ALL (including me) back AMD and root for them. It's harder and harder for me as an AMD fanboy for 10+ years to come up with viable debates as to how they *might* equal or surpass Intel even on Intel's mid-range.

For the last 5 years since Intel managed to pass us, I've been able to create debates about how AMD killed the Pentium 3 & 4 in performance, and how they invented the x64 architecture and leased it to Intel. And how they made a huge jump in memory performance over Intel by innovating on-die memory controllers. And then they made the first dual-core processor (which was fail, but it beat hyperthreading, and Intel's PD was equally fail, but AMD started multicore).

I WANT to be able to make good arguments for AMD, but almost 6 years have come and gone since the Core 2 that put Intel ahead once again, and Intel pulls further and further ahead, while AMD is making it harder for me to win debates with the same old arguments.

@Clowerweb, it is the mobo, you have a very big vdroop from the pic you posted 1.3v is very low considering the default 1.38v, and thats why you got a better stability when pumped a higher vcore.
by the way vdroop is controlled by the motherboard, thats why the guys said raise vcore and blamed the mobo.

i did't have the opportunity to test you mobo and to see if it have llc "load line calibration" or not, that's how to fix your problem.
the other way around is to pump vcore @ 4GHz "not both", that's all i got for you.
_________
sorry, if you have llc set it on the highest level.

Finally got my rig built. This thing is QUICK!. Stock vid via CPUZ is 1.308. But my TEMP via HWmonitor seems way to low. Like 19-30*c package temps? thinking.gif

Turned my exhaust fan around - with the side still off from taking the pic and the fan still facing in, OCCT was quitting with max temps reaching over 71c (my setting). Trying again. :/

Edit: CPUTIN keeps reaching over 70c with the side back on and 120mm exhaust fan turned around (blowing out)? This never happened before...

I have an issue though. I got everything installed and running, and the first thing I did was Prime95 it to check my stability and load temps. It's currently still at stock speeds and all BIOS settings are default. Within 1 minute, core 6 got a "Fatal Error: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4", and about 30 seconds after that core 8 got "Illegal Sumout" frown.gif I let the test run for another few minutes and the other 6 cores stayed stable for the rest of the 5 minute run.

Here's what I'm getting from HWMonitor:
CPU VCore: 0.912v - 1.432v
CPU Temps: 34c - 60c (stock cooler)

CPU-Z shows me running at around 4.1 GHz fairly consistently. It doesn't seem to drop below that, but it fluctuates (probably turbo boost) up to around 4115 or so, haven't seen it go higher.

Here's my setup:
FX-8350, stock fan, stock settings
ASRock 970DE3/U3S3 (770 chipset, SB700 south bridge), BIOS version 1.6 (current version, I flashed it immediately)
G.Skill Ripjaws DDr3 1066 CL7, 8GB (2x4 GB) dual channel, stock everything on that too

Any ideas why I can't even keep it stable for 2 minutes with everything stock? Did I get a chip with bad cores? Thanks for any tips!
More than likely its your power phase on the Asrock motherboard. It is not a very good choice for the CPU you are using, it is not even a 990 FX chip set and has poor VRM support.

Stock timings and speed on the RAM, set everything to default, disable turbo and APM as I've noticed that messing with the stress tests and try stressing it a bit like that. Your main target should be getting everything stable at stock, then you can try OCing the RAM to 1333, add some voltage (don't go over 1.65v would be my advice, if the modules are rated at 1.5v then 1.55v/1.6v should be ok). Increasing CPU NB voltage may also help with stabilizing the RAM OC.

You're looking at CPU NB settings, which is actually the memory controller integrated in the CPU. The other NB is part of the motherboard and I don't think you should change anything with that.

Try RAM at stock 1066 and stock volts, CPU at 4000 with turbo and APM disabled, all voltages on stock. See if that's stable.
Your board DOES support 140w CPUs, but not FX chips above 95w. It supports 140w Phenom IIs. I wouldn't overclock the CPU at all on that board, nor would I increase the voltage. If any, I'd try to see if I can get it to run at 4GHz with a bit of undervolting.

$80 motherboards do not have LLC. His closet is horribly incompatible. I am surprised it even posts. He'll need a 990FX chipset. board to have decent power phase control.
