Not for quite a while. I don't blame him either, many of the threads that he posted in were filled with immaturity, "grain of salt" posts and FUD from other websites. I would stay away as well.
True enough. I know for a fact that he was running into the smae on other forums, and stopped as well.

For all we know, he's SeronX. :laugh:

1. Doesn't show what kind of cooling it has. Could be air like he says.. Could be LN2.
2. Overclocking in windows? Are you kidding me?
3. It's unstable as shit. Notice when he starts up the computer windows is asking him if he wants to boot into safe mode? Why is that. Because it's crashing
4. 2 core overclocking? Who cares
I know don't shoot the messenger
I did give a Grain of Salt message
and SunnyKFC and OBR did have a huge major fight at the Xtreme System forums

It is just Seronx short for Seronxolitus
I am not him trust me look up Seronx, lol

FX-8120? Where's then FX-8130P? Nevermind: as long as this 8120 Turbo Boosts from 3.1 to 4.0GHz it's going to be one hell of OC'er; only thing left is the figures/tables showing how it performes vs Sandy/Ivy Bridge & Westmere. Hope you will make new "Dozer OC'ers Club" thread after it launches. :) And bta, you always deliver.

P.S. Typo: from 3.6GHz to 4.2GHz it's not 500MHz, it's 600MHz turbo boost. Everything else is ace. Keep 'em coming, bta. :toast:

Any products out that we can look at? A quick search didn't turn up anything besides VIA's websites and some PR releases.

They are all ES but with a B1 stepping. Amd delayed releasing the B1's to consumers because they were performing like shit.
Says who ? none of this is even properly documented. ES is ES, its nothing more. Its all FUD so stop railing on about it already, your just making yourself look like a dumbass doing so.

:laugh:

Why do company's produce different stepping processors? To fix issues with a prior stepping. Want an Example?

Phenom II X4 955 C2 :

Had issues going over 3.6Ghz, Memory Controller hated anything over 1333

Phenom II X4 955 C3 :

Over 4Ghz without much issue, Much better memory performance with 1600

Amd had to revise the processor because it was having issues.

Indeed. Since we now know that all of these "leaks" were nothing but fakes. So as it stands we have nothing to base speculation upon other than a leaked blurry photo of a Bulldozer die that may or may not be real.

I beleive B1 & Engineering Sample are the same thing; need to wait for info where it says that rev. B2 or C0 are hitting launch date; any info that says when those revisions are out will be more than sufficient.

May I ask, can anyone speculate what the difference between the 125W TDP varient and the 95W TDB variant of the FX-8120 will be?
(besides temperature being lower)

Thanks.

2Disruptor4:

What you just said plus a bit more room to OC compared to 125W; same as 125W CPU compared to 140W TDP CPU. :) Though that's not the only thing you should worry: look what revision the CPU is - if it's rev. B2 95W TDP & the other is rev. C0 125W TDP, go for rev. C0 one even though it's 125W. Tends to OC better then lower (B2) revision.
