Hi guys, just want to share my experience on this board..


AMD FX4100 and FX8120
Asrock 970m Pro 3
ID Cooling frostflow 120l
Coolermaster MWE 550w White

I have a AMD FX 4100 & FX 8120 procie,
Now when i use my FX4100 with my Asrock 970m Pro 3, i don't experience any problem, now i upgrade my procie to FX 8120 and try to run some games, i experience some FPS drop whenever my cpu temp goes to 60+ degrees, i know this is CPU throttle, my idle temp is playing at 40+ to 50+ degrees and when playing games it will went up to 60+ degrees, when ti comes to my FX4100 my idle temp is 22 to 28 degrees only, playing games it will go up to 40+ degrees, now i want to underclock my FX 8120 to lower power consumtion, but sadly my board won't let me overclock or underclock my cpu whenever i change the settings in BIOS at first when it restart it will let me boot my windows, but when i shut it down and turn on again my pc it wont let me go to windows, it freezes all the time in windows 10 logo, please help me.

I have the same board. I am having issues different from you but we can compare notes.
Post your complete specs. Bios version. Stock cooler? Ram? Power Supply?

I will post my specs when I get to my home PC. I am using the first edition of PC Power and cooling silencer 750. One of the best power supplies ever made.
Going strong for 15 years. Newer enthusiasts will sl*g on its age until they see 60 amps on the 12 volt rail. Quality steady current for stability and safe guard protections if it fails.

Are you using Asrock tuner or Adrenaline?" rel="nofollow -,PCMark%2010%20...%208%20SilverBench%20...%20More%20items" rel="nofollow -,PCMark%2010%20...%208%20SilverBench%20...%20More%20items

I know the overclocking cowboys like the Phenom II processors the best for bragging rights.
