AMD FX 8100 Surfaces on HP Pavilion Desktop

AMD's third 8-core desktop processor model is available through OEMs such as HP. Called the AMD FX-8100, this chip is the most affordable among the available FX-8000 series chips (that's FX-8120 and FX-8150), and according to HP's component pricing, about $80 cheaper than the FX-8150. The AMD FX-8100 is a base model processor option for HP Pavilion HPE h8z desktop. It can be configured to have FX-8150 instead, for $80 over the base price of the desktop, of $830.

The FX-8100, like every other FX Series processor, features an unlocked base clock multiplier to help with overclocking. The chip is clocked at 2.80 GHz, with TurboCore technology, all eight cores can overclock themselves to 3.10 GHz. To handle tasks that aren't multi-threaded, the chip can overclock some of its cores (up to four of them), all the way up to 3.70 GHz. Like every other FX-8000 series chip, the FX-8100 packs 16 MB of total cache (8 MB total L2 + 8 MB L3), features an advanced instruction set of AVX, AES, XOP, SSE 4.2/4.1/4a, and a system interface of 5.2 GT/s with HyperTransport 3.1.

So does HP actually let you O/C the cpu? I didn't think they did that on pre-builds.

The FX doesn't use that much power on stock. These pre-builds usually have some crappy graphics cards in them anyways.
So some 300W PSU can easily power the thing.

Even minor bumps in Overclock don't suck back power such as a few may suggest.

What do you mean? Generally, minor bumps in overclock won't need added voltage anyways.

Yes that was my point from one of the posters. In other words, yes you can OC the CPU to a certain extent without adding volts.

Turbo Core Function should be enabled in OEMs but ability to overclock yourself shouldnt be. Myself will never buy an OEM machine.

The 8100 is going to OC only if there are OC functions provided in the mobo like voltage adjustment, NB, HTT etc. The mobo would be a locked down one that will work upto say 125w. Few multi change is not going to blow the mobo or the PSU.
