Help! 8150 won't go to 4.15gHz after bios update Sabertooth 990FX

post #1 of 4

Ok I will be honest I don't know much about overclocking CPU...

But on the Sabertooth 990FX there is a nice Auto OC feature (O.C. Tune I believe) that would bump my speed up to 4.15gHz instead of the normal 3.6ghz of the stock FX-8150

I was running bios 901 than I decided to do a bios update (1601) since it's raining outside and I got nothing better to do :-) and now the O.C. feature is stuck at 3.9gHz! Can anyone tell me what's up with that? Or give me a general idea how to force it manually

If I was Catalyst cpu overdrive feature it bumps the speed to 4.2gHz but windows still reports 3.9ghz...

Any help would be appreciated

Thx guys

Its an unlocked CPU, OC in bios for better results, just set your multiple to 22x (Is that 4.2ghz?), set your load line calibration to high, set CPU volts to 1.4 or so.

Try that, should be plenty of volts. If you wana save power, turn down your volts at your desired speed until its no longer stable. If you want more speed, try uping the multiple more

Make sure you keep an eye on both CPU and Mobo Temps, max temps for that CPU is probably 62 C (at least it is with the 8300 series) ... I hope you are not using a stock cooler.
