Athlon 860K, any one picking it up? - Page 208

I've had many, many more FX 6/8 series chips and all of them would do 4.6+ and most of them would do 5ghz with little effort besides cooling the VRM/socket area on the motherboard.

Wow man, thats awesome. Too bad about the accident with your golden 860k though :/

If most 880k get within spitting distance of 5 Ghz, I will insta-buy one. Hell, if they can get to 4.6 with decent voltage, I have nothing to lose, this socket is dead anyway and I want the best possible chip for this overkill mobo.

Yeah, I'll buy an 880k day one regardless, it isn't like it can be worse than the chip I have now, its base clock is the same as what I'm barely able to overclock to. I wonder if they're going to release them or just sit on it like the 870k.

Like I've read somewhere, they are probably waiting for enough Godavari chips with bad igpu to collect to finish converting them to Athlons. Hope it will be before next year. In my country that means few months later after initial release. Can't wait.

Sometimes I'm really glad AMD chipsets are so generic across a platform, Windows 7 didn't seem to notice that I swapped out the UP4 for the Asus A88X-Pro when I re-activated it lol.

Same here. When I swapped GA-F2A88XM-DS2 (one of the cheapest A88X boards) for Crossblade Ranger, my Win8 gave me no problem at all.

Btw, I'm enjoying Witcher 3 on my PC a lot. I runs very smoothly, average 44 FPS, medim postprocessing, medium-high details graphics @ 1600x900 resolution. Of course, I can get it above 50, but I don't want to sacrifice the eye candy, as there is no reason, for how smoothly it runs currently.
Sometimes it dips into 30's for a second, thats probably the CPU part when loading new terrain or something, but other than that, I am really happy with how my config handles the game.

Alright, I gotta ask. Does anyone else have problems copying large files to and from USB 3.0 on FM2+ platform? I have numerous USB thumbdrives with stuff for when I re-install windows, and on FM2+ every single time I try to copy files larger than about 2GB the system becomes completely unresponsive after a bit (copying will suddenly stop). Mouse works normally, but even the web browser won't do anything until the copying resumes. System configuration/OS seems to have no bearing on it, and it only seems to happen with the native USB 3.0 ports.

I just tried it on 2 of my USB thumbdrives (one is 3.0 and one is ordinary), on USB 3.0 port on a file 4GB big and had no issues. I also have installed drivers for 3.0 from some AMD install package.

870K in stock in China at 459RMB

It seems to have also improved heatsink (bigger box)

Looks like a step forward for a stock heatsink.
Thanks for the link.

So I fired up Wolfenstein: the new order for the first time. This CPU is giving me some noticeable bottlenecks at 4.3. I'm also wondering about fallout 4, anyone have any insight?
