I just picked up a shiny new FX-8120 from CompUSA earlier today. I haven't gotten around to testing it thoroughly, but I did manage to do a quick overclock to stock 8150 clocks, minus the turbo core.
I've been doing some research before-hand on the temperatures and what are ideal, but I haven't seen much for an 8120 (they're mostly for an 8150).
If I can, I'd like to get some advice on how much I can overclock my 8120 (ideally I'd like to sit around 4Ghz, with Turbo core enabled around 4.3) and what the normal temperatures are for it.
The Crosshair ended up setting it to 3100MHz to begin with. Right now it's somewhere around 210 * 17.5 at 1.35V and a 20 minute run of Prime95 put the AI Suite temps at 64C (Corsair H100 with two Antec 120mm fans in a 600T) and the CoreTemp temps at 49-52. The idle temps are the usual with CoreTemp, around 9c which isn't possible, but I'm not sure what to watch for the load temps. I don't want to believe an AMD CPU is approaching 65C with an H100 at this low of an overclock.
Also, how do I properly configure Turbo Core on a Crosshair V? I'd like a minimal overclock when possible, but the settings looked kind of confusing.
Thanks for the help!
