AMD FX 4100 Overclocking

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I just bought a new desktop system with a AMD FX 4100 and want to OC it to a 24/7 running speed around 4.4 to 4.6 ghz. I have a COOLER MASTER V6 GT cooling system and was am looking for someone who has some experience with OCing this processor who can help me out with some multiplier, voltage, and other settings that I can start with to reach the core speed of 4.4 to 4.6 ghz.

Here is my comp...

I got mine to 4.4 pretty easily, I set the FSB to 240, multiplier at 18.5, Vcore at 1.41-1.43v. Also, I had to increase the CPU/NB voltage to 1.3, not sure if you will have to on your MB, but I did. I left the CPU/NB multi at 10, so it gave me an OC of 2400MHZ on the NB. Seemed to be very decent and was stable for me. All depends on the chip, but try my settings first, and you could even take it higher, who knows! thumb.gif

EDIT: Also, I was able to get 4.6 with just upping the multiplier and voltage, but in my (little) experience, its better to OC with the FSB as you will get more stable OCs (dont quote me on it, just my experience!) By using the FSB, I didnt need as much voltage to keep things stable.

I pulled a 4.10Ghz OC so far on the 4100 by upping the multiplier to like X20.5 and the NB to 2200MHz with a stock cooler. Ran Prime95 for 12 hours and the CPU never went above 49c.

Is that all you did, mines at 4ghz with the NB as you. And my temps get a little high sometimes near 75c. Anyway you should be fine with the cooler you have getting it to 4.4ghz or 4.6ghz. Up the NB to 2200mhz and up the voltage and multiplier and you should have a stable oc.

You realize the MAX Safe temp for the 4100 is 70c right? You are pushing yours to 75c?

Yeah something sounds off....

I am going to assume his heatsink isn't installed properly as I can run 4.10GHz at 49c max but usually hangs around 44 at max load.

It only gets like that when I run prime95, doesn't do that when I play games.

I would not consider that to be a "successful" or "stable" clock then. Prime95 is designed to see what your processor may do under full load and if you are going beyond the MAX safe temp then I'd consider down clocking.
