    63c seems good to me. That wouldn't bother me for a stress test temp. As you say, gaming temps will be lower.

    Thanks. That's what I was thinking too. Still stable at almost 3 hours! Woot. Will call it a good oc if it passes Prime95 at 3 hours on all 8 cores.

    CPU at 4GHz and RAM at 1866MHz stable after a 3 hour Prime95 run. Max temp was 63 C, but was pretty consistently at 61 C. Here is a screen shot:



    Took me about 2 minutes in bios. Just raised the multiplier to 20, set the RAM at 1866MHz, turned off turbo and all power saving features, and left everything else on auto.This chip, mainboard and RAM are so sweet for oc'ing. Makes things so simple! I could go in and tighten the memory timing some, but will just let the chip take them where it wants for now.

    Had to do a fresh install of Windows tonight. After than was done, been messing around in bios and I've found that my 8120 runs a lot cooler and is more responsive when oc'd to 4GHz with the RAM at 1600 rather than 1866. The timing on the RAM is a little tighter too. Am I correct that RAM at 1600MHz with tighter timing is about as fast as 1866MHz with looser timing? From what I've read there is really no noticeable difference when oc'ing RAM from 1800 to 1866, but I don't have a ton of experience.

    I am reviewing memory for the X79 platform. I have a huge database with about 8 sets of RAM. Depending on the app, benchmarks can be faster with lower frequencies with tighter timings although the latency scores and read/write speeds to the memory are a bit lower. The same held true with the Kingston Hyper X Red Limited Edition I reviewed on the FX-8150. Tighter timings trumped the higher frequencies in most apps. The only way to find what works best for you is test it and find benchmark programs for mainly what you use your system for.

    Thanks. I guess I'll benchmark the memory eventually but right now the system just feels faster at 1600Mhz with tighter timings, plus the 8120 seems to overclock way better with the memory set lower. The timings are 9-10-9-27 and that's just on auto. First, I want to lock in a good 4.2GHz oc then I'll go in and mess with the timings. I think I was to shoot for 9-9-9-24, or should I go a little tighter?

    I have to say, overclocking with the Bulldozer and Crosshair V is a lot of fun. Not nearly as frustrating as it was on my old rig with the M4A87T. That old board just didn't overclock my 1100T well at all, I think because the board was intended for four core chips.

I think I was to shoot for 9-9-9-24, or should I go a little tighter?

    I have to say, overclocking with the Bulldozer and Crosshair V is a lot of fun. Not nearly as frustrating as it was on my old rig with the M4A87T. That old board just didn't overclock my 1100T well at all, I think because the board was intended for four core chips.
    The Digi III power phase on the Crosshair is superior to the 8+2 power phase on the M4 making it easier. I would get the CPU within 100 GHz on the M4 if I had a few hours with it.

    Installed my new Asetek 550LC this afternoon. Installation was pretty simple and only took about a half hour. Do you think cable management is sufficient? I wish I had some sleeving for the colored wires. Eventually, I'll get some.









    So, here is where I'm at temp wise. I have my 8120 overclocked to 4.2GHz. It's passing prime but hits 66 degrees C around the 1-1/2 hour mark so I shut down prime. I think that is way too hot. I guess I need to back it off to 4 or maybe 4.1GHz and see how it goes. I'll take some screen shots of my bios and post them in the next thread. Maybe some of you with ROG boards can give me some pointers. There is a Digi+ VRM/Power Control section in bios I'm not too familiar with that is supposed to be very useful for holding down temps while maintaining stability. I've experimented with it some, but could use some pointers. I'll get the bios shots up soon. Thanks.
