A10 6800k - IGP Voltage, GFX Engine Clock, Asrock - FM2A85X-ITX

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've recently build a small 6800k based PC for light gaming. I've only just started to do overclocking as such I'm still very ignorant of a lot of things and its terminology.
I've overclocked the CPU to my current satisfaction and upped the IGP to 1013 and used furmark to stress test though I haven't increased the voltage beyond stock settings and would like to know if anyone have any experience with overclocking the IGP.
One thing that puzzles me is the fact that my BIOS doesn't have any setting for IGP clock instead it got something called GFX Engine Clock. It seems this is the IGP clock because software like AMD overdrive does "translate it as IGP.
Though what puzzles me is the fact that at default the BIOS have the GFX Engine Clock at 760 MHz and not 844 MHz as I thought was the clock of the 8650D.
Is this just an error in BIOS and is it something I should worry about? Nothing else seems strange in the BIOS as to my knowledge though as I said, I'm a newbie. I updated the BIOS from 1.50 to 1.60 but it didn't make any difference as far as I can see.

I am still not sure what GFX Engine Clock means but I have now gotten a stable clock of 1167 MHz at 1.4 V CPU/NB GFX Voltage. I didn't go any higher as have read that there is no gain beyond that.
Performance is pretty much as expected. I am able to run most games with a bit of tweaking and the point of this built was to play some of the great Indie games my notebook couldn't handle and just generally prolong its life and battery.

I was planning to wait until AMD release FM2+ before I upgrade it but I am now cosidering getting a discrete GPU as the medichore anti aliazing I have to put up with is starting to irk me a bit.
