So after llano released I wanted to give it a shot but never got around to it. Now finally after so long I’m going back to it. (See previous posts for motherboard and CPU shots) Picked up the Gigabyte A75-UD4H and 3870K for around $160CAD total so it couldnt hurt
I decided to do some preliminary CPU tests under cold air. For those of you that do not know, Llano does not clock nearly as well as Phenom II did on air. Max stable air clocks for my chip are around 3.5GHz on the corsair H50 so I’m using cold air to give a little bit more headroom for benchmarks.
About -10C outside currently.
Just did some quick and dirty chilled H2O runs with my corsair H50 on the 3870K. Corsair rad was put out the window in -10C weather.
Ram was left at a stock XMP profile, just overclocking with multiplier here. Untuned Win 7 X64
Shot of the setup
4GHz SuperPi 1M
3.8GHz wPrime 32m
3.8Ghz Cinebench………….the 3.4GHz result was actually done at 3.6
4.1GHz validation All 4 Cores………mm voltage Validation
Thats all for tonight, the chip is back to folding for the time being.
When I get time to bench again, next up is some ram+GPU tuning and some 3d benchies vs stock benchies
Well amidst all the new releases of trinity and PD, I have opted to pick up a 3870K paired with a GA-75-UD4H to have a little bit of fun.
I skipped over llano when it came out and most other releases as I have been pretty busy with life outside the forums/blog.
So now it is time to make up for all that.
I will be receiving my 3870K in a week, but for now here are some shots of the board and ram:
I have recently been working on fixing my HP g6 laptop. As a result, everything is ripped apart down to the bare bone hardware itself.
That is when I started to get ideas. …
We all know that mobile llano (sabine) is capable of being software clocked using K10Stat. So I decided to bust out a lightweight dry ice pot and fill it with regular ice cubes!
All Set Up!
Down Pot Shot
Getting Frosty…oh and If you’re wondering why I’m reading the GPU temp, it is on die so it is the same as the CPU temp
Mobile Madness! 3.4GHz on an A6-3400M APU
Base Shot, and SODIMMs
Beware of condensation! Fun Fact: Right after I took this photo the water leaked through the seal and dripped down onto the socket. Luckily I unplugged the motherboard before any damage was done.
Now for a couple fun little benchmark runs!
SuperPi 1M @ 3.3GHz
wPrime 32m 4 Threads 3400M @ 3GHz
Well all I can say is that was fun. The laptop motherboard I am using actually has a broken connector for the LCD screen so I am waiting for a new one to ship. Maybe I can pick up a cheap A8-3500M and do some benching on that!
