Q: Is it possible to unlock disabled cores on the AMD FX-6120 CPU?
A: No. This processor does have 2 disabled cores, but there is no way to unlock them.
Q: My processor is running 55C under load. Is this normal?
A: Safe CPU temperatures are 60 degrees Celsius and below. It may
still run fine with CPU temperatures, exceeding 60C threshold by a
few degrees. Running the FX-6120 close to 70 degrees and higher is not
Q: Can I upgrade my FX-6120 processor?
A: Probably yes. CPU compatibility is determined by your motherboard. Please see CPU-Upgrade.com website for CPU support list for your board.
AMD FX-6120 Overclocking
Sorry, overclocking information is not available at this time.
AMD FX-6120 CPU is available in HP computers
Jun 29, 2012
: While Intel have been busy refreshing all desktop market segments in the
first half of this year, we haven't seen many new AMD desktop FX and
A-Series processors. In fact, AMD
only 5 desktop SKUs, including three Athlon II CPUs, in the first
two quarters. That doesn't seem much considering that Intel launched
26 new processors at the same time frame, or that AMD introduced 18
desktop chips in Q1 and Q2 2010.
New AMD FX processors sighted in MSI support list
Apr 10, 2012
: In March Donanimhaber published a slide with details of two
FX-Series microprocessors, coming in the second quarter. According to
the slide, AMD FX-4130 and FX-6130 are not going to be the fastest
CPUs on the block, as such we hope that they will be less expensive
than current FX-4170 and FX-6200 products. Specifications of FX-4130
and FX-6130 CPUs were recently confirmed, when MSI
their specs to CPU support list of MSI 890FXA-GD70 motherboard.
AMD to release more Bulldozer FX CPUs
Feb 18, 2012
: With the first Trinity APUs expected sometime around the middle of the year, and Vishera CPUs with a Piledriver core expected in Q3, Donanimhaber have uploaded a slide containing details of 3 Zambezi CPUs (with a Bulldozer core) that are expected during Q1 2012. We have already posted preliminary information about FX-6120, and AMD have now added FX-8120 and FX-4150 to the line-up.
You're welcome to post suggestions, corrections, your own personal
AMD FX-6120 review, or your experience with the microprocessor.
