    I finally got around to tweaking my cpu oc, Changed cpu llc from high to ultra high and dropped te vcore slightly which stopped those odd drops. changed the cpu/nb llc to high too.

    you seriously need to jump to the newer piledrivers you will see so much of a jump over what you are seeing now at those same settings

    I know mate but for what i do with my pc, just gaming there is no point yet. when they were first released and getting bad reviews i was set to switch to intel on my next upgrade but that would have been a good while from now. Now i've seen what they're actually like i now have room to upgrade without a full platform change and will go the Piledriver route but i'll wait untill the end of the year or something when the prices have dropped. Not that they're too expensive as they're not, Its just i can't justify the purchase to the mrs and being on disability living allowance we have more important things to be spending on at the moment. Once the price comes down or i come across a nice deal when funds are better i may get one sooner

    Sometime ago tw33k, Mark, was fiddling with a Bulldozer and switched to a Piledriver and was disappointed in its lack of improvement. He went to an Intel build and was very happy. But this of course is even more money than AMD.
    My point, I guess, is don't worry about upgrading to a Piledriver for the sake of a few MHz of overclock. :)

    Most people seem happy with them and say they're a lot better than the BD. Atleast now i have a viable upgrade without having to switch to intel which would mean new a board too. There's no way i could do that for a long time lol plus i have no need to go the intel route as i only game on my rig.
    As good as the intel chips are they're just over priced. It would be even more of a waste than what i have now lol. If i come across a PD really cheap i'll snap it up but untill then i'm happy with what i have
    i was recently offered an new 8150 by a friend in norway for 50 shipped and i would'nt of had to pay untill i'd tested it but i was building my daughters rig at the time so couldn't afford it. No doubt i'll come across another deal

    Well, I have read that a AMD CPU along with certain AMD GPUs outperform Intel in many games, their Fusion(?) platform I think. Yeah, Intel stuff is overpriced.

    Yeah if you have both AMD cpu/gpu it unlocks other features. Scorpious was the last i think. Those APU's are supposed to be really good aren't they. All the cpu's/ gpu's ive had so far have been AMD and i could not fault any of them. i'd rather have stayed with AMD for my gpu's but had the choice taken from me lol. Still i can't complain as my 670's were free
    people always say how bad ATI drivers are but i never had any probs but Nvidia has given me a fair few lol.

    Honestly it's not just clocking it high it is better perfromance all around the scheduling process is better

    Memory controler works better Britton you know there has been dramatic improvments over the previous generation that just can't be unnoticed 8120 max cinbench was 7.05 now with a better chip round the same OC i was getting 7.95 that is a 90 pt jump so i don't see how it wasn't improved and adding 200mhz got me a score of 8.10 -8.11 so the gains are there but understood Gangiry choice not really a point to justify spending if you already put money elswhere

    Yes Scorpious is the latest platform any FX series chip along with a 6 series or 7 series GPU will bring the SCORPION platform out

    The Fushion platform is the one with a APU cpu and a mid range gpu it still turns into scorpious but these compete with intel HD graphics in combination with a gpu

    My OC i have determined is @ 4.8 Ghz but it shows under and it spikes to 4.820ghz from 4.789-91 Ghz is this a common thing is it true that i am actually running a little higher then read ?

    My first venture into Gpu overclocking went aswell as i thought it would. I couldn't get much of an increase on the core clock, +50 over the factory oc with a locked voltage so anything over +50 doesn't pass Unigine Valley. It takes my max kepler boost upto 1215Mhz instead of 1175.
    Mem clock i haven't pushed higher than +225Mhz.
    Power target was set to 128% and for the 1st time it actually hit 100%.

    After checking with Google it seems that some with this card are not even getting as high as i did.
    I enjoyed trying though

    Edit: I've searched google to see what others are reaching with this gpu and found that the max core anyone has got on it is +70 ish. People are able to up the mem clock by a couple of hundred Mhz though so i'll see what i can get with the mem 2moz morning
