You got some catching up to do WarEagleAU Unless its the lower volts your after
LOL Im on air and just got this like last week and haven't played with it at all, lol. Lower volts would be nice. Not ocing the LP Corsair Vengeance I have.
I'm on air too btw, but yeah I feel ya. Just trying to motivate you so I can see how far you can get
Here is the latest.
Your getting there!
Been a whole since I've been in this thread. What did I miss? LOL. Nice clocking Wareagle.
Whirl Kicks Chicken Patty in the back of the head lol
Only playin dude. WB
I talked three console addicted friends into building gaming computers. Theyre all building skyrim rigs, lol kinda like the crysis rigs when that was coming out.
^Interesting, got some specs on them?
I may go phenom 2 Less AMD FX 2 (Piledriver) Brings way better IPC Per Core and IPC Per CPU compared to Bulldozer...
Well, only one has actually built his. He was wanting to save money so he has an msi 760gm, athlon ii quad @ 3.1, 8gb ddr3 and an evga 550 ti. And then he got an nzxt phantom for $ 130, in preparation for an ivy bridge upgrade. The other two are buying parts as their budget allows.
Oh, and my uncle too. He saw that I could run more than two background programs at a time and felt the need to upgrade. Went from a pentium 3 to a 2600k, changed his world lol.
Not started clocking the CPU yet:
Holy crap, that I am sure off. That's from one extreme to the other.
Yeah, ikr. Its always fun when hardware illiterate people want to build a gaming rig. "why would I need a CPU cooler? It gets hot!??" Ahh, ignorance is bliss...
@Mav: What kind of cooling you got?
Yes it is.
For the CPU? Custom water cooling. For the RAM, none.
Yeah, I meant CPU. When are you gonna start OCing it?
Yay, cant wait to see some sweet clocks.
I think I might get an 8170 whenever they come out. Provided it performs at least as well as sandy.
You have some catching up to do as well Aphex!
So who else is abusing the cheapie bug goodie FX 6100?
Do I! But isn't 1.6 volts to much for 24/7 clock? Plus I'm only on air.
Thanks CP, I have been reading AMD expects most to get their 8150s and even 6120s to around 4.8 GHz on air. I want to shoot for that but this 4.3 Ghz is nice. Wish I could work on clocking this ram but not sure how it works.
Whats max volts / temps?
Decided to join the club! Bought myself a FX-8120 today, together with an ASUS Sabertooth 990FX.
Just did a quick and dirty OC to 4,5GHz with a core voltage of 1,4 . Seems to be stable!
Edit: Just did a screenie to back things up:
