AMD Kaveri Refresh A10-7870K Apu arrives. - Page 51

post #501 of 532
Thanks for the help with this i have the chip running as i want.

I have dropped the NB back to 2000Mhz biggrin.gif and am running the vore voltage, think its that one, on a -0.0300 offset. I left the memory at 2400Mhz. Temps are great and the system is stable. it plays COD Black Ops 3 perfectly well thumb.gif

These chips are not half bad at all, i really like it. way better than a rubbish i3 or Pentium biggrin.gif


Going to reinstall the system, windows 10x64 home, on an 960Gb SSD and test my R290 in it rolleyes.gif


I actually can not wait to see what AMD have done with the ZEN APU's tongue.gif

In view of the continuing interest in this thread (50-100 views a day even when there are no new posts for weeks on end) someone may find this gadget useful.

 

 

It simply does the maths that produce operational values from adjustments to Apu Frequency and other BIOS inputs and can be used to plan an overclock or remind yourself about a BIOS setting.

 

It was compiled with Delphi 7 so in Windows 7 and above the exe requires its compatibility set to Windows XP/Sp3 in its Properties>Compatibility tab.

 

I could have spent a lot of time researching all the combinations of Amd processors and Fm1/2/2+ motherboards to match every possible setup and got involved in runtime form design, but I decided that idleness was the better part of discretion and just set it up for the A10-7870K/A88X-Pro. However, there is a Radio Button switch that allows the GPU and NB input values to be adjusted away from their listed values which should allow it to be used with other Apu/Athlon processors and motherboards.

 

When using Athlons with it, just ignore the GPU.

Hi Guys.

DO anyone have any idea what changed in Win10? Any time when i try to change my 7870k PStates, the computer is completely freeze. AFter restart, it says it was a Display Driver error. This problem occurred after i had to install a fresh Windows after a failed Anniversary update... It is a full fresh system, and since the first boot it is doing this. If i try to set CPU Ration and voltage in UEFI even then its not gonna be stable on those PID-s and VID-s what before i used to. I have to use the system on default settings.

What software are you using to change PStates and what commands are you giving it?

I'm fairly certain that PSCheck does not work with Kaveri. I found this link immediately but you could google on PSCheck AND Kaveri to see if it's confirmed anywhere. If this is the case the probable solution is to reset the BIOS.

I happened to be under the wrong impression that clocks could be altered if only NB were to be left alone. It should have registered with me that this was an all or nothing slippery slope, but apparently there is more that is linked to the gpu activity than that.

  • Unlocking the NCLK frequency might require a cold reset.
  • The NCLK frequency cannot be changed in flight (e.g with PSCheck) after BApm has been disabled.

I tried PScheck a half year ago with 7870k, and i wasn't able to run it. But i found AmdMsrtweaker and K15TK and those worked before. I was able to cahnge every pstate on the fly.

So have you tried resetting the BIOS?

Yep. I did it a few times already. And i have no idea what changed (In Windows). I set up everything like before. (I have the newest UEFI verion on my mobo (Asus Crossblade Ranger), and its true, everything just work fine out of the box on default settings, but its just not the best. This APU can do much more than now.)
