I just got my hands on 2L of instant -45C in a bottle and a A10-6800k so I started messing with the bios to make friends with it and after I down clock the iGPU NB and ram to a minimum so I wouldn't burn through my 2L of coolant I noticed that I can't get to the option for disabling cores which is key for CPU frequency runs. So I wanted to ask if anyone knows what the problem might be. Because if I figure out how to turn of 3 of my cores I swear to hit 6Ghz.
Please reply ASAP as I want to get in on the Asrock A10FM2 OC competition with atleast an ok score to start carving a name for myself and this is all that's stoping me
Help us help you... which mobo?
Yeah, I was wondering the same thing, but you beat me to it.
it's an Asrock a85x extreme 6
I looked at cadave review's bios section and I noticed that I can't find the core leveling mode thing but that doesn't look like what I'm looking for anyway. I tried google but obviously very few people want to turn cores off on a quad core so I got absolutely nothing there.
Anyone? Cuz I'm considering that I'll just have to flash it but I'd rather not risk bricking my board for something that may or may not even fix the problem.
Try to flash latest bios and check if u can disable cores under cpu section
A question for you people here.
In the CineBench 11.5 result window, is there anything special about the number at the top left not matching the number by the orange line down in the graph?
Could you send a pic of what you're talking about cuz I bench cinebench a lot and I have no idea what you could be referring to.
On another topic I want to say I hate the asrock a85x extreme 6 from the 8 phase vrm to the bios chip because it is one really awful board. The BIOS lacked several key settings and what wasn't missing was so stupidly designed that it would've been better if it wasn't there. Maximum voltage was 1.55v which you got to by slowly scrolling through a 50+ option drop down menu. The cpu thermal probe isn't even close to the actual cpu cores. And the vrm was running stupid hot at what I believe was 1.6v (llc at max gives serious voltage over shoot). However in the process of hating this board I was also searchching for the best application method of my exceptionaly cheap freeze spray.
Direct to cpu application is a no go the same goes for using a one piece aircooler as a sort of inverted LN2 pot. No this stuff only really works when sprayed at the intake fan of a watercooling radiator quickly turning the warm water into sub ambient water. If done on a large enough scale I believe you could get the water coming out if the radiator within a few degrees of the evaporation temperature of the coolant so around -40c. However this will require two people one to spray the coolant and the other to mess with the computer settings.
Next time I'll be explaining how VRMs work and what makes a good vrm a good vrm.
BTW I found the sweet spot for benching my cpu it's 5.25ghz (the 3960x not the a10)
the results? The always match afaik.
This is from the following submission: http://hwbot.org/submission/2438361_munchen_cinebench_r11.5_a6_3500_3.08_points
Oh its ok, the graph is all about previous scores or reference scores
That is really weird try running the benchmark again and if that doesn't help reinstall cinebench.
It's not mine. Just thought that the orange would always match the number up top.
Saw it while perusing a rivals submission... Still can't get my head around how he got it there. The information is a bit hard to get through. :S
Edit: Also, any good way of checking VRM temps?
TPU's HWBOT COMP VERY SOON GUYS!
this is the first benching comp ive known and wont be the last!!!
Got my 4770k upto 4.4ghz. I think I am ready to bench now. Joining the team.
TPUs bench competition starts soon, hope to see some names on the stages
I will give it a go no intel crap to bench but may acquire a gts250.
You can always do pi 32Mil
9370 vs 8350
im pretty good at superpi 32m
btw captains (yes you cdawall) are not allowed prizes lol
does anyone think it would be a good idea to get one really fast 4GB stick for benching or should I just go through my current ones and check to see which is best because my current sticks are 6x4 1600 corsairs(maximum 1666mhz 8-9-9-24 1T @ 1.725v) and 4x4 2133 g.skills(maximum 2333mhz 11-12-12-32 1T @ 1.69v)
One? I would get two as some benchmarks (not sure which off the top of my head) will make use of dual channel.
So would this be OK or should I go with something like these
Sorry the links aren't in English but here where I don't have much choice and I don't want to go checking that I picked RAM available here when I provide a link
