A10-5800K CPU question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, new here and just built my first PC. I have the Asus A85X M Pro board, in the CPU monitoring it reports 4300mhz out of the box. Is this normal? I didn't change any settings yet. I am thinking of pushing my CPU, IGP slightly to get just a little boost. Anyone use the auto tune feature Asus has in their utilities? Or is it just better to use the BIOS? To be ahead of the game I ditched the stock CPU cooler and added a side 120mm fan to the case (can't fit a 2nd due to Hyper 212 size).

My specs:
A10-5800K
Asus A85X M Pro MB
Patriot Viper 3 16gb (4x4gb) 1866 RAM
Intel 330 240gb SSD
Seagate 3TB 7200 rpm HDD
Gigabyte 6670 1gb DDR3
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus HSF
Cooler Master Storm Scout case
Corsair 650TX PSU
Asus 24x DVD drive
LG BD 12x drive

Primarily a Photoshop PC for Light room, PS Elements and PS Premiere Elements. Maybe some light gaming from my old Steam games (Black Ops, Portal, L4D, etc).

Later on thinking about moving to a 7770HD for GPU, not for a while though (wife says no more lol).

i have used the auto tune feature in my mobo and it actually does quite a good job adjust clocks and such on cpu's

You should be able to get more performance by tuning your ram and cpu multiplier in the bios. I have an a10 system I just put together and Im pretty sure if I used the automatic Motherboard OC option I wouldnt get the boosted ram to 2133 and I dont know how asus does it but the auto OC for my MSI board jacks up the base clock which causes instability. You will certainly want to try and get 2133 speed by manually setting your ram to that speed, you may have to fiddle with timings , probably start with cas 11-11-11-30 and if you can tighten it up a little more from there all the better. The GPU responds really nicely to the faster ram speed.
Give the ram 1.65v and if it runs stable try to back down to 1.6, I need 1.62 for stability at 2133 with my gskill 2133 rated sticks

Is that for Asus or do you have a different board?

Thanks for the suggestion, not sure if I want to dabble with having to change voltages just yet :-) I'm a newb to OC'ing. Basically I'll probably be fine with any adjustments I can make without messing with voltages. Appreciate the heads up regarding the stability of the auto OC feature, that's what I was worried about but hoping Asus has some good calculation on it.

If I play with the RAM, how much % gain could I expect from the GPU (just the APU IGP or both that and the 6670HD in crossfire)?

Actually the auto OC feature on your Asus Mobo should work alot better than mine, this MSI board is not an overclocker's board but yours should do fine. In most cases you need to set your RAM up manually though because RAM rated higher than 1600mhz is not jedec standard.

Check the package to see the rated voltage for the sticks themselves, you will most likely want to go with the highest number as AMD mem controller is not the most effecient. AMD's top spec for mem voltage is 1.6v, so if you dont want to exceed any manufacturer's specs dont go higher than 1.6v but many will tell you its ok to push to 1.65v...just be sure to check your sticks first because some are not recommended to go higher than 1.5 or so. Then just use the XMP profiles for easy memory divider and timings setup. If you get any instability with XMP profiles and youre feeling ambitious, go in and back off on the timings slightly. Most 1866 rated sticks can be pushed to 2133, and this would be recommended if you are gaming with the IGP...not sure how this affects the dual graphics setup though.
