I have FX 8320 with 7850 2GB graphics and installed a Virtual Machine in VirtualBox this evening. It should fly given my hardware but it was incredibly slow to the point of being unusable for anything useful. I had everything enabled which should be enabled (including 3D acceleration), assigned 128MB to the graphics, decent amount of RAM etc. but no matter how much I tweaked settings, I could not get it to run well at all. My old 955 BE ran it a -lot- faster so I am not sure what is going on.
Anyone got any ideas?
do you have SVM turned on in the BIOS My virtual BOX FLIES!!!!!!! almost to the point of it being a jet compared to a pinto haha

Also, I'm not certain that it will gain you a lot of real world performance over tighter timings at a slower clockspeed. I'm just too impatient to really get into memory tweaking to find out for myself.
What is the highest memory divider setting on your Sabretooth?
its 2400 with FSB at 200 so that is definitely within range.. also I hold my OC with 250FSB and that allows for memory to 3000mhz after that it would just be adjusting and making sure that there is enough Dram VDDA to support that speed on the board..
Im not really going to buy as i need to get a higher paying job to support the habbit this was more hypothetical and I was curious as someone in the Sabertooth club thread had asked about 2400Edited by F3ERS 2 ASH3S - 3/7/13 at 12:41pm
