Here are my components:
APEVIA Case w/ 500W power supply
AMD A8-3780k APU w/unlocked multiplier
Enermax ETS-T40 CPU Cooler w/ 12cm Fan
ASRock A75M-HVS Micro ATX Mobo
60GB OCZ Agility SSD (OS)
2TB Seagate Barracuda (Media)
2 x 4GB Corsair Vengeance Low-Profile 2133Mhz RAM
Gigabyte Radeon 6670HD Discrete GPU (for Crossfire with APU)
I also have 2 x 12cm intake fans on my case (one front one side) and 2 8cm exhaust fans on the back.
I used the included thermal paste to attach the CPU cooler with no problems, and I've managed stable overclocks up to 3.5Ghz using OCCT and Prime95... (104FSBx34) CPU voltage 1.4625V and CPU NB at 1.250V
I want to use AHCI mode for my SSD as supposedly it's faster, so I can't raise the FSB above 104 without losing my HDMI/VGA outputs.
I've also been playing around without any FSB increases and actually managed to get a stable 3.4Ghz by undervolting slightly.
Seeing as the HD6670 will be taking the brunt of the graphics load, and from what I've read an overclocked integrated GPU is negligible in crossfire performance with Llano, I won't be overclocking the IGP, just running it in crossfire at stock settings for an FPS boost.
My goal for this OC is 3.5 - 3.6Ghz CPU, but when I run OCCT or Prime95, the CPU throttles down to an 8x mulitplier when core temp. hits 47 Celcius. I realize that the actual core temperature in AMD chips is offset, but using HWMonitor I get similar readings.
I'm concerned my OC will throttle on me during regular use, is this a concern?
if anyone else is running an OC Llano build, any suggestions for FSB/multiplier settings as well as voltages?
Ideally I'd like to run voltages as LOW as possible while acheiving as close to 3.5Ghz as I can.
