I've never found that to make any difference to my maximum overclock ya know, just down volts and clocks the cpu when it's idling is all.
I've had issues with it on quite a few setups with it not scaling up when needed.

I have had issues where the system refuse to recognize an increase in load, so the fan on my CPU cooler would stay at like 10%. If the cooler is going to run 1 speed, full speed is my choice.

Ahh cheers, guess it's hit and miss.

I tend to control my fans manually so may of missed the fan speed problem.

Anybody try this with Overclocking and Core setup?
Maybe need to patch for running core priority.

Now : Core 0 --> Core 1 --> Core 2 --> Core 3 --> Core 4 --> Core 5 --> Core 6 --> Core 7
Right Priority : Core 0 --> Core 2 --> Core 4 --> Core 6 --> Core 1 --> Core 3 --> Core 5 --> Core 7

How do you set core priority?
I don't think you can, I think it's another "hopefully they'll release this to fix Bulldozer" situation.

Of course, I would be happy to be wrong.

:rolleyes: More BS. I wish people would read what this thread is about. I'm so tired of all the speculative crap. People need to just be comfortable with what this chip is. Some of these people must be paid by AMD to try to save face or something. I don't want to hear it. Get a FX chip.. do whatever with it and post results here. :slap:

Meh, it doesn't increase single core performance which is what this chip is lacking in. The benchmarks they use really don't relate to many people. Move on.

What's the highest OC with all 8-Cores you guys got? This review site ended up getting on air cooling 4.8GHz stable at 1.4v. Not bad at all. Still can't find a FX 8150 anywhere in my area.
I was able to reach a stable 4.8GHz on all eight cores under extended stress testing, running the CPU at 1.4V and using a Thermalright Silver Arrow air cooler..........................
The performance improvement is less than what I'd hoped, but bear in mind that the AMD FX-8150 can crank its cores up to 4.2GHz at stock clock speeds, and the difference between 4.2GHz and 4.8GHz is only 14.9%, so the observed 13.3 percent is quite close to what you'd expect from the clock speed difference.

@ dumo: Why is your 1m Pi slower than your 32m calculation? Both of those are faster than mine by 2 secs. :shadedshun: I gain 1 sec. per 100Mhz

This is good to know:
If, during this overclock, your system shuts down, that's a new protection from AMD. You've reached either the heat, TDP or OCP limit (this seems to happen once the CPU pulls more than 26.5A from the 12V CPU rails (8pin and 4pin connectors). If that happens decrease the voltage a bit.
In regards to that drop, your setup is somewhat unstable. Try reducing the NB speed a little and re-test.

Why not at least a 965? And is that really an upgrade from your 1055?

Why bother with a 965? I could overclock a 925 just as far : ] ( who cares about 100mhz a higher binned chip might get you)

And I don't have a 1055t anymore it was sold to make way for BD but like I said, Aria don't have em.
