Bulldozer and....2133MHz Ram?

Postby skier » Mon Oct 24, 2011 1:48 pm

so I just made a thread regarding 1155 boards, and figured i'd pick everyones brain about bulldozer because i don't have the time to read many reviews of the architecture because i have work & class for 12+ hrs a day until 9 at night, 6 days a week, not to mention homework ontop of that

but anyway, i do see from flipping through nates article that bulldozer is semi-close in performance to the 2600k at a lower pricepoint which OBVIOUSLY intrigues me if you remember anything about me i'm all about the best value for my dollar.

the only way i would go with bulldozer however is if it can support the CL9 2133MHz kit of memory i ordered on friday

so how well does bulldozer work with high speed, low latency memory? I know Deneb and thuban could not really operate much above 1750MHz, is bulldozer the same way?

Just ran some benchmarks with the FX-8150 with a Kingston HyperX T1 2133MHz 4GB dual channel memory kit and it got 20.70MB/s for the memory bandwidth on Sandra. The system isn't 100% stable though and I'm not sure why. The kit I have is older and needs 1.65V. My AC is off today and the test lab is 80F. The ASUS Crosshair V is cooking even with a 120mm fan on the CPU PWM area. I'm getting blue screens and can't get it to run stable with either kit. With the factory HSF i'm sitting in the 50-55C range at idle. I can't even get the USB key into the machine to transfer off the sandra result for you and CPU-Z won't open it's so unstable. It might also be an SPD issue as these memory kits are years old and were made before bulldozer was in production.

reset the memory to 1600MHz and got the screenshots off:

With the KHX22133C8D3T1K2/4GX memory kit running at 2133MHz 9-10-9-28 1T I was able to get 20.7MB/s
With the KHX22133C8D3T1K2/4GX memory kit running at 2133MHz 9-9-9-24 2T I was able to get ~20.3MB/s

Intel is cheaper, faster, uses less power, generates less heat and has been out longer. Go Intel.

thanks for the info guys, i figured sandy would be pretty much my only choice here, but figured i'd ask about the memory support because i have been out of the game entirely for a number of months and had no idea if bulldozer could handle high speed & low latency kits or not yet. evidently not.

thanks again :supz:
