    Just had a look, thats still a good score, but that program is all so very memory based and running the 32 bit program won't give you a true reading of you rigs capabilities.

    Bios settings and a dozen other factors can also impact. Disable anything like SpeedStep while you're testing, you'll have lower latency, rather than the faint pause in the time it takes for the CPU to scale back up to full speed.

    Turbo is going to spin around a bit. it'd be better if you could achieve a higher overall speed, I think.

    In other news: I have added, like, seven points to my score! http://browse.geekbench.ca/geekbench2/561316

    Inch by screaming inch; I'm going to get 13k. Processor was at 4977mhz, Memory at 1580Mhz.

    Still can't hit my 13K goal, though. Bulldozer's crappy Memory Controller really isn't helping me here.

    Still, not bad for a good fifteen minutes of work. Back to raging at games now.

    Not bothered with BF3. I'm too much of an Introvert to bother with teamwork.

    Sidenote; This processor doesn't actually mind 1.725V if the need arises. Who'da thunk it?

    I find this interesting, along the same lines as something bulldogjeff said in another thread AMD chips seem happy with whatever volts so long as you can tame the heat

    Up to a certain point, aye. Beyond about 1.775; Water Cooling starts to become a bit iffy. You need DICE or stronger to keep it in check afterwards.

    have you bumped your base clock for extra memory speed? You may have to drop you multi as you go.

    Mine happily raises to 105. As its memory sensitive, moving your baseclock also overclocks your memory. So you'll get a higher score. But it also overclocks your CPU x multi, so you have to balance clock speed against memory speed.

    Got me beat. I could probably push to 5.4GHz, but I'm gonna be busy with the ME3 demo. Nice one Tundra:thumb:

    I didn't bother with half steps. I put my multi to stock. Then raised baseclock as high as it would go, and afterwards raising multi. (I tell a lie. I put multi to 40) I hit voltage wall first. Before I found the high clocks. I was v.upset. need a better mobo. It was something i did not forsee.
