    This clubhouse is for help, showing off, and everything else having to do with overclocking/using the AMD FX series.

    Keep in mind this clubhouse is for overclocking the AMD FX series of CPU's but things like setting up, asking questions, etc. are not out of the question. This clubhouse is not for flaming, trolling, naughty behavior and most especially unwarranted complaining.




    Erocker's original post
    I will have some results in a day or so. I'm in the process of tearing down my watercooling case and with time on my side I should have it all setup, fresh install of Windows and such done.

    Get going!!

    Is anyone else concerned about the power requirements? I have a psu rated to 650 watts. I've seen my rig hit 550 in crysis 2. According to hardocp's overclock consumption test if my core system was BD based I might be over that limit. Curious to see how that plays out. The tpu poll says our average unit here is under 650w.

    No. I would be if I made the mistake of buying one of these chips without knowing what they were first. All of this kind of information is located in the other Bulldozer/FX threads and should already be known.

    Anyways, this club isn't for that kind of talk, it's irrelevant.

    You are going to use the Crosshair V, and 2x 1 GB 6950's, erocker, correct?


    What PSU and cooling?

    I got 6x120mm rad watercooling, and a block from an XSPC RASA kit. Might pick up a new block. gonna use Noctua NH-C14 for air clocking, and Antec 1200W with 2x 6950 2GB. Haven't decided on what board I'll use, might try all the ones i got, depending on how well it goes for you.

    Sweet, I haven't spoke to TillDeath but I think he will still get one so we will see what it can do. I look forward to seeing what people can do far as clock speeds.

    Yes, there's a few Bulldozer-specific BIOSes floating around ATM.

    Are there any 9 series m-atx boards floating around, after my intial dissapointement i'm thinking that i might go for a FX6xx0, probably january-ish, hopefully the power usage will have gone down after another rev or two. I'm still kind of looking forward to playing around with one of these chips, but that power consumption is a big concern.
    (i'm really starting to suspect that the monstrous power consumption at the moment is caused, at least in part, by some severe leakage at higher clocks, though that massive 16MB cache can't be helping much either. also the win8 build dropped about 7 watts, not bad)
    hopefully once GF have sorted that out 4ghz give a nice perf/watt ratio

    Edit*
    @down below
    well i guess i'll have to settle for one of those, any suggestions?

    are you talking about potential issues using an 8series mb?

    P-states, and potentiall VRM modes might be a problem. Bulldozer BIOSes aren't good for Thuban, and vice-versa, is the word so far.

    I'll be checking this thread for sure. Despite the somber enthusiasm following BD release, I'm still very anxious to see what fellow TPUer's get out of their FX's. Good luck to all, lets see some results!

    Not reviewing. Don't really care about reviews. It's a new chip and we're going to overclock it and beat it. Results are just an afterthought. :D

    It will be defined on a case by case basis with lots of bias and unfairness. :)

    Are they at microcenter yet? If so we could see some user results before the end of the day.
