FX 8120 overclocked to 4.4. Vcore set 1.4 showing 1.38

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
As title says, I have my CPU 8120 overclocked to 4.4 and its been stable for most part. The voltage however even being set at 1.4 with all power management options shut off c1e APM etc only shows 1.38 at max on CPU-ID. I have a fatality motherboard the 990fx killer and that program shows its voltage is set on 1.4 but only reads as 1.38 max. Have had one blue screen. Will cool and quiet or spread spectrum enabled cause this? I disabled both of them since blue screen and seem to be ok but still no 1.4 voltage. screenshot for you here.

Vdroop - and .02V isn't bad at all for full load.

Unless you continue to get BSOD errors you're fretting over nothing.

ok. I dont believe I have LLC on this board which I have read about. So I should be ok then. would setting the voltage higher help or is it not worth it? And does cool and quiet mess with overclocking as far as possibly causing blue screens.

In the "old" days the standard recommendation was to disable "all" power savings features in order to maintain stable overclocks. It's been my experience that with every new generation chipset / cpu / motherboard that the ability to overclock AND use the power savings features has improved as dramatically as the rest of the technology.

So these days I settle for more modest overclocks and the ability to use the power saving features.

Can CnQ mess with overclocking? - Yes
Can it cause BSOD? - Possibly

Would increasing core voltage eliminate BSOD? Depends on what is causing the BSOD and that can be narrowed down by analyzing the crash dump.

Yes, up the voltage a bit and try again. If you want 1.4v to show in cpu-z, set it for about 1.42 in bios.

You can use the MS toolkit or various other 3rd party tools for viewing the details of the BSOD dump file.

Do you guys think that the system showing 1.38 at 4.4 ghz is causing the blue screen. I will try again once i get home.
post #10 of 19
Just because it is reading 1.38 vcore in and of itself is not causing your blue screen. In fact your voltage is probably in line with what most other FX 8120 users need to get to 4.4 - 4.5Ghz. I'd say that anywhere from 1.37 to 1.40v set is in the ball park, even with a vdroop causing actual to drop down to 1.38v or so.

First thing to do is run one of the blue screen analysis tools I pointed you to in my earlier post

Second thing to do is run Memtest 86+ overnight or 8 hours and see if it passes

If Memtest passes then you can proceed to harder core stress testing like Prime95 or OCCT
