Sorry for the long title but, I'm hoping to draw an immidiate and specific solution. I recently upgraded my CPU to the 8120 from my 960t four core. I now am experiencing a 50% decrease in memory performance. I also am trying to work around the throttling issues that appear to be very common.
All bios/drivers are up to date with all cores recognized in task manager.

After everything was installed and running, what seemed to be optimal, I ran some benchmarks. First I used amd overdrive and the out come was terrible. Floating point calcs on my 960T was 22000 were the 8120 was 16000 other issue was memory 960 was 4040 and 8120 posted 2045. The confussing part the 8120 showed no improvement if OC or not.
Next test I did was cinebench 11.5 and things seemed hopeful. Scored what most others did with a 6.1 as where my 960 scored a 4.5. Still the AOD troubled me.
I ran passmark and all became worse LOL. CPU was posting great numbers but everyting else failed. Memory seen a 43-52% decrease, SSD suffered 20%, 2D image gen was terrible....by this point I became rather pissed and frustrated. My 960T out perfored in all but the calculations.
I then played a few games and my god the frame loss was outragous!
Please all, if you have any insight for me. I would like a game plan before I get home and waste away my friday evening, obsessing, repeating....well running full insanity till I either starve of fix the problem
Thanx in advance and I will truely and forever love the person who helps me
