hey, thanks for the link for the unparker:thumb: , i have an fx-8120 and i'm not sure why it's doing what it is, but i used to run it with turbo boost enabled (first boost set to 4.1 ghz and the second boost at 4.3 ghz). so i get into an overclocking mood once in a while so i set my cpu in the bios from 3.1 ghz to 3.4ghz and rasised the voltage a couple of notches. then in overdrive i set my first boost to 4.2 ghz and the second boost to 4.4 ghz. now we know that turbo boost will only overclock four cores, right? , wrong (at least in my case)
,i ran the unparker to unpark all cores, and it did, now when my turbo boost kicks in it's with all eight cores, and wow , what a difference, and these are now my 24/7 settings, the only thing that i have to do is when my computer starts up, i have to go to overdrive and enable turbo boost and set mt settings. i have checked and double checked that all eight cores are running in task manager, resource monitor, amd overdrive, aida64, i'm sure i could easily bring the speed up, but i settled for these settings because they are not power hungry and i don't get too hot, like i said it's a 24/7 set-up. i hope you can get something from this to help you out. but honestly, it feels like i just did a major upgrade, i can't wait to get my hands on a fx-8350 and see what i can do with that.
btw, when i'm not doing anything, it clocks down and my voltage drops too, and i have almost all of the power saving features in the bios disabled
