Windows 8 Not Using All 8 Cores - FX-8120


Computer Type PC/Desktop System Manufacturer/Model Number ASUS - Home Built OS Windows 7 HP 64bit, Windows 8.1 Pro w/Media Center 64BIT CPU AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Motherboard ASUS M5A99X EVO Frequent crashes in gaming, as well. I will await to see what the consensus is regarding Reaper and Windows 8. I am no computer wizard...

They have the money AND they have the facilities to do it. You can do it all with this cpu, play games, stream, record, web, render, file compression, its single core performance is excellent, and over-clocks pretty good, was able to get a For example, just because a program doesn't crash on 99.9% of computers does not mean that the program is not buggy. Any suggestions?


Windows does not redetect CPUs automatically.Edit: Forgot to mention, Windows will be forced to detect the CPU after a reboot, provided all old entries have been removed. wrong. Is it 800x600, 1280x720, 1920x1080, 2560x1440? Where would I find those patches/OS fixes?

Definitely gonna consider adding those extra vrm heatsinks. Thanks in advance!

Try looking in msconfig in boot, advanced options and make sure the number of processors box is not checked. I even reset reaper to factory defaults and no changes. I have one ITX APU build here task manager shows two cores and four threads/logical cores. You have 8 logical processors, that's what you need to know.

If you see SIX it may be a problem with the BIOS settings as you can change the number there.2) BIOS - You can boot (DEL key) into the BIOS on CMT is not a marketing ploy at all. Appreciate you responding to this. There are a number of things that Bulldozer does better than the Intel cpus and vice versa.


I may add a PWM controlled fan or two to the case and tie at least one of them to the secondary CPU fan control. i have little patience so hopefully everything will be near enough instant? Fx-8370 So now that I have ruled out every possible angle on my end - can this actually be sent to the issue tracker... (Yes I will be returning to Windows 7 Amd Fx 8350 But I have no problem in a 25m raid and getting at least 30 fps.

I have fixed Apple Mac's, Dell's, HP', lenovo, samsung you name it They all have their issues This is starting to look like a Reaper Problem ( Config Issue) Can you all overclocking is completely disabled right now, everything is running at stock speeds. At which point are compatibility lists no longer updated?We're not talking about the difference between an AM2 or AM3 board. Please also post a screenshot of your Preferences->Audio->Buffering page. Cpu Z

I have Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo as the cpu cooler.Oh, and I did try few of the possible solutions already, only thing left to try is to just set my bios However it's not different from turning options on or off in other software. I don't know how you could now be beating the "overclockers" composite score. MMO-Champion » Forum » Off-Topic Forums » Computer ยป Improving AMD FX-8120 Performance (Is it even possible?)

I'm kind of shocked you asked for this, it's pretty well known that Sandy Bridge has superb IPC, while Bulldozer took a massive hit over the previous generation. Hardly enough time for a prelude. I have attached a few pictures to see if anyone sees anything I am missing.

Overall OS tweeks but not worth upgrading .

bigpinkdragon286Mar 21, 2016, 2:30 PM Disabling turbo is only throwing away potential performance. Reaper with the 200 plus tracks seems to be working again. I should have more than enough power under the hook to operate Reaper. I have no good source for TjMax values other than the ones you can fetch from the hardware directly.
