Athlon 860K, any one picking it up? - Page 199

post #1981 of 3195
If you want to see the voltages for turbo modes, run amdmsrtweaker with no arguments, and it will show you all the current p-states. The states listed as p0, p1, and p2 show you the turbo settings.

Did you make sure all power savers were off? I would also up VRM settings, that can sometimes increase steady voltage.

Yep. Both the A88X-UP4 and the A88X-Pro give the same results with this CPU. My old 860K could do 4600mhz with less volts than this one loads at stock.

Sounds like that's just a crappy 860K. As fussy as Kaveri is about power, I guess a bad power supply could hold one back, but I'm sure you know better than to hook your computer to one of Jonnyguru's gutless wonders.

If that chip can't do a straight 4 GHz even with 1.550v, I wonder if it's even fully stable when it turbos up to 4 GHz. I'd run every stability test I could at that chip, running at stock settings, and try to get it to flunk so I could RMA it back to AMD as a defective part. If it fails any stability test at AMD's advertised settings, you're within your rights to ask for a replacement.

I have another PSU and set of RAM coming today I'll check with it just to be sure, but I doubt anything has changed with those parts. My 7700k doesn't OC for crap either, maxes out at 4.2ghz with lots of throttling. The old 860k was a beast using the same hardware.

For $99 get this instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA4GH3396553

260X is pretty damn slow, if the budget is that low I'd look to craigslist or ebay and get something decent used.

Logisys PSU
Definitely look into a different PSU.

Basically what scorpion said. Or you can head over to r/hardwareswap in reddit. I almost see everyday 7950/70 going for 80-120 bucks which would obliterate the 260x for around the same price.

https://www.reddit.com/r/hardwareswap/comments/3pg1cr/usaorh_gigabyte_7950_hd_3gb_w_paypal/

I literally found this in the first pages of r/hardware. Some very good prices are in there.

Yep, you can get some good deals if you look around.
