Add Your Comments

EDITOR’S NOTE: Unfortunately our Crosshair IV Extreme does not seem to support Bulldozer, even on the latest beta BIOS. We will work with ASUS to correct the problem and re-schedule the livestream. Thanks for your support!

Overclockers.com has already published benchmarking results for AMD’s new Bulldozer this morning in our FX-8150 review.  Now, OC Forums administrator and Benching Team member I.M.O.G. will be putting the new CPU to the test. Using the latest hardware and liquid nitrogen cooling, I.M.O.G. will take Bulldozer as far as he can tonight in the spirit of the world record set earlier this month.

  • CPU: AMD FX 6100 Bulldozer

    Ya, no board yet. I will have time tho come Monday when it gets here. Will be a long weekend. :)

    I have a friend getting married tomorrow though, so at least I can attend without my mind being elsewhere. ;)


    There goes Matt with his hardware fetish again... :D

    LOL... Yeah... It was a valiant effort to kill it.

    I say it's put up the numbers to earn it's right to live.

    If the board shows today you still planning to go live tonight?
    Glad you enjoyed the 965 BE death march... Unfortunately, I didn't get any magic smoke out of it. Gave it over 2V, so it was an honest attempt. :D

    No mail yet today, pretty anxious to see the CVF when the truck goes by.
    I thought the same thing you did, until checking Asus's site yesterday then going directly to buy a Bulldozer. I wouldn't have gone to buy it if I didn't read support on their site, which is frustrating. I should have tested it before having this article published though.

    Asus told me so:

    Pretty damn misleading. I probably won't be the only person with a CIVE to encounter this problem. :(

    And getting back on the topic of tonight's session.. I just noticed something.



    I did not know the CHVIE supports AM3+ CPUs. ;)


    Told you so!....

    :chair:
    No Crosshair V Formula received in the mail today. Hopefully it shows up tomorrow, then we'll be back at the live benching.

    Capttripppp - glad I saved you the trouble. I would hold off until you hear any updates about the CHIV working from someone else. Its possible it works fine with an FX-8150 or some CPU that I didn't already buy... But it certainly does not POST with an FX-6100 installed. I checked, rechecked, flashed BIOS, and reflashed BIOS... Nothing could make it work with the 3107 BIOS that Asus states on their site supports AM3+ CPUs. :-/
    I.M.O.G.
    To make this clear:

    Beta BIOS 3107 or standard BIOS 2002 does NOT support AM3+ CPUs.


    Dern shame really, I was hoping to use my CHIV Formula to run a BD:bang head
