Asus CH V Formula Bios 9911

From Stilt @ XS...

"A new beta bios for C5F was released today

Added option to disable individual cores in a compute unit*

* You cannot "mix" compute units working in single core and dual core mode.
If you disable e.g core 8 and leave all of the other active, the system will hang during post.
Core 1, Core 3, Core 5, Core 7 active (= 4 compute units / 4 threads).
If you still want to decrease the amount of threads, you need to disable the compute units (by disabling CU 7, 5 and / or 3).

Added override option in "DRAM Driving Control" menu (for Addr/Command timing control): Enabled = Asus optimized values will be used, Disabled = AMD reference values will be used. While the optimized values generally work better at high MEMCLK frequencies, it is recommended to use the AMD reference values at official frequencies (up to DDR-1866) to maximise the memory compability.

Addr/Command timing control values are now selected from a drop down menu (instead of a direct input method).
The current settings are now also displayed in bios.

Northbridge multipliers up to 31x are now available (instead of the previous 16x).
Raising the BCLK unnecessarily high is no longer required to reach proper NCLK frequency.

CPU Level Up function has been added".

There is suppose to be a BIOS update for the ASUS Crosshair V that can do that. To me it sounds like AMD is using ASUS are trying to avoid sending new chips for 6 and 4 core to reviewers. So it is possible with that board, but I don't think that will be a universal thing.
If ASUS/AMD limited that feature to just ASUS CHV's, I think a lot of Gigabyte, Biostar, and MSI clockers would be pretty upset when attempting max clock LN2 runs.

I hope erocker gets his stuff fixed, I'm anxious for more results!

Edit: I just now saw dumo's post

I don't know. ASUS got it first because they supplied the board most reviewers were suppose to use. So they may have just got a head start. It is kinda a pointless feature from the perspective of the consumer which is why I don't see other manufacturers following suit. I think that BIOS will be for the reviewers only.

I don't play that BS. If AMD wants a review for the FX-6100 and FX-4100, then I need two new chips. lol

Great first part of the review. I enjoyed reading the evaluation so far, and look forward to part two of the review. Keep up the great work! :toast:

For those wondering how would it perform as a 4 "core" CPU should look at this thread:
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums...ew-(4)-!exclusive!-Excuse-for-1-Threaded-Perf.

It is clear that performance is better in a 4C/4M configuration...

Also note that you just can't disable any cores within a module, you need to have it running as 1 core per module (4C/4M) and not 2 cores per module (4C/2M). So that you avoid the resource sharing by the cores.

No it's for benching too. The last thing anyone needs is another damn Bulldozer thread.

So, my FX is on the test bench now. Getting blue screens at stock and right now I don't know what the problem is. Possibly my SSD. Anyways no time until Sunday to work this crap out.



All the reviewers are liars. This is the best chip evar!!!11!1
Try backing off the water block fasteners 1/4 turn.... hey it took me a few weekends to figure the sudden BSOD I was having when @ stock speeds too. :wtf: the new socket is a tad taller Im thinking but wont know till the extra board gets here Monday. I see you hitting 63c and only a coulple of intel stress runs... You may have screwed it
I think i'll be waiting and watching b4 I dive into this cpu.

Bulldozer supports "Core Parking". They've probably just enabled that, or forced it on to those cores.

And yes, you could do what you said.
:laugh: Yes I just found out.
It's much better to have 4 Modules with 4 threads vs. 2 Modules with 4 threads. The 1st option don't have to share where as the 2nd option you do.

Here is a great QUOTE:
Why the hell couldn't AMD figure out a way to disable this resource sharing when 4 or less threads are executed?

i'll be joining in on the fun... the ability to park 4 modules and run 4 has been the decider for me... that and i also need a heater for xmas... :)

just got my ram, what boards are we recommending... i was thinking of picking up a sabertooth...

i'm gonna wait a week to see what happens to prices for my chip..

what batch is your chip erocker,cadaveca ??

I'm waiting for AMD to send me a chip. They were never released here in Canada yet, with most stores telling me another 3 weeks before they have any(a couple say before the end of the month).

Erocker sat at the pc with many sites open, waiting for a real listing, and got his before they sold out. He's got pictures up on the second page in this thread, but you cannot read the IHS like you can on Dumo's chip.

Can I ask the folks with a retail chip to test something? I have a theory that most chips run 4.5Ghz at a pretty decent voltage, i.e. around 1.3v, and I wanted to know hows the power consumption. Sorry if this is off topic but I think this could be a good selling point.

Thanks FF:)

I think I can go 5.5Ghz but my SS cooler can't handle the load:(

Definitely LN2 is the only way to go for cooling @ 6.5Ghz+ 8cores/8threads
Hey Dumo, I'm getting BSOD's at stock. Are there any bios settings that need to be on or off that you can think of? Everything in my system is tested and stable, this is definitely CPU or bios related.

*Bah, this CPU is junk. It's going back for a replacement. :(
