FX 1820 1.4ghz while gaming

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
in my second build I have a 8120 and Ive tested it out while gaming and noticed it hovers at 1.4ghz on the cores then switches to 3.4ghz now and then
gameplay is very laggy, if im not mistaken shouldn't it stay at full load..


its also restricting the gpu as the gpu ( gtx 660ti) is only at 50% usage..

am I doing something wrong? is there something to disable in the bios or something?

game was crysis 3

Try disabling power saving features in bios, including APM

Tip #1. CPU Power Saving Throttling (Bios related)

Disable
AMD Turbo Core Technology
APM (Application Power Management) *disabling the AMD Turbo Core Technology via AMD OverDrive utility will also disable APM)*
Cool ā€˜nā€™ Quiet *I actually keep this enabled so I don't waste power since high clocks aren't needed under low loads*
CPU Thermal Throttle *be careful keep an eye on your temps, especially core temps, leave this enabled if your not the cautious type* (FX-8120 < 61C, FX-8150 <61C, FX-6100 <70C, FX 4100 <71C)
Core C6 State
C1E
Enhanced Halt State
Any other Power Saving Features in your bios, usually under CPU Advanced, Google them first.

Enable
Load Line Calibration, play with this setting until you get stable voltages under load, remeber every bios is different, some might even be better with it disabled, but most best enabled and manually set.

Notes
*Ensure that CPU NB, Memory or HT Link values are running at default stable values.*
*CPU / Chasis Fan Control (set to full speed for best cooling, if too loud play with the manual speeds.)

Hmm, how is your vrm ventilation?
I had the same problem. Was a heat issue from the vrm's.
Basically made the multiplier drop. And that caused FPS-drops once every while.
