I have emailed AMD Processor support on the 16 aug, 02 sep but only had an auto-reply on the 06 sep to give me the Service request ID - but I cant reply to the AMD email or follow up the request. So....
Here was my message that I hope people can help me with:
Good afternoon AMD,
I'm already a proud owner of an AMD FX 8150 which is 0.8Ghz (22.2'%) OC'd to 4.4Ghz with 1.4v (260 BUS x17 Multiplier).
I'm currently using an Antec Kuhler 1220 for the CPU cooler (temp reaching 45 degree's max using Prime95) but will be upgrading to a top spec custom water cooled solution soon. I've just upgraded my RAM and want to ask for some help with what the best CPU will be?
The FX 9590 is a little too expensive so I'm looking at the FX 9370. I'd read its an FX 8350 but just with a higher base clock and power usage? My FX 8150 produces 223 TDP already anyway* :-) ...
So basically: I'm looking for better performance and lower temperatures for an FX 9370 running with the base clock @ 4.4 Ghz, than my OC'd FX 8150 @ 4.4Ghz
...So then I can look at OC'ing the FX 9370 with my watercooling… to hopefully reach 5Ghz stable for day to day basis?
I know there are a couple of questions but I would greatly appreciate it if you could get back to me regarding my concerns.
- Performance increase with Multi & Single Threaded
- Unlocked Core Frequency limit ('Can' I Overclock the FX 9370 by 0.977Ghz (22.2'%) to near 5.4Ghz like I have with the FX 8150?)
Best regards and many thanks,
