Are AMD CPUs really THAT bad as people say? - Page 29  

post #281 of 358
Fair enough and it all makes sense once someone puts it into perspective. Thank you for that. The HTLink puzzled me more at stock settings than the CPU/NB did, as far as frequency. For some reason with only one GPU the BIOS sets the "Auto" HTLink frequency to 2600. Either way your information is quite valuable and hopefully now I can make the appropriate changes and in turn see a bit of a difference. This is what I am hoping for anyway.

Once again I apologize for off-tracking this thread, but I do very much appreciate all the feedback provided!

Try installing both bulldozer hotfixes for windows 7.

http://downloads.guru3d.com/AMD-Bulldozer-hotfix-from-Microsoft-download-2831.html

When I installed windows 7 on my Athlon II X4 (modular cpu), I don't recall seeing this hotfix in windows update ....
which leads me to believe that many people may be using modular AMD cpu's with windows 7 without the hotfixes.

After installing the hotfixes, I notice that cpu usage is very well distributed across all cores.

Install both hotfixes and also disable C6 power state in the bios.

Most people get them for budget builds. they are not bad its just that they are not as good as intel. They are mostly used for budget builds and for the more CPU core that people need for editing or something.

Well at the time i used my UPS APC Backup 1500RS with the usb to get the amount of power the system consumed, then i wrote a little program to do the calculation with sweet web interface,
for the calculation, 1KW in Guyaba (Where I live) is $53.77, converting to 1 US = 200GY so doing the math $0.265US for 1KW, note my system use to be on ALL the time, pretty much compiling some code or playing some game, if I was not using it gf was, i think the minimal power consumption was around 160-180watts, , large image https://dl.dropbox.com/u/7371269/PC/old_pc.jpg , which i could find the specs but it was GPU: ATI XFX 5770 and Phenom 940. To the bill will when i did my calc it was around 50us i has to pay extra for having that monster on 24/7

Nice image, well good bill bro

Ivy dont really get hot, i hardly get this thing to touch 75c, even while compiling linux kernel.

Your E3-1230 v2, a 3.3Ghz Quadcore that has a lower TDP then consumer parts, hits 75C.

An 8350, a 4Ghz 8-core, does not pass 62C.

I assume both are on stock coolers, but for all I know you may have used a stronger one. Yes, Ivy runs hot. You also responded to the wrong person.

post #289 of 358
Ive had my cpu for about 2 months now. I game on it and my wife uses the pc for photo editing in lightroom and photoshop cs6 or what evers the latest. Neither of us are complaining. Everything works great. The only thing I can say is, the cpu really started to shine once I hit 4.8ghz. I would go higher if temps allowed, but that my absolute max clock with really loud high speed fans. I am currently waiting on water cooling gear to come in, so I will be able to push those clocks higher and gain more from it.
Great cpu for $140 on the used market. smile.gif
