Well i'm off to try again, and hopefully not crash and burn in the process. Thanks again

Ok so I'm now up to 3.78 ghz on the cpu (cpu clock3780, cpu nb frequency 2310, cpb ration 4095, cpu frequency 210).

Upped ram voltage, and timings to factory recomended (9/11/9/27 @ 1.65volts) still running at 1333mhz(though bios is saying 1399 now), and changed from 2t to 1t.

I'm still getting the memory error on prime. Though programs and web pages are loading much faster now, and haven't had any crashes, or bsod. Any ideas on what should be done next?

I would suggest to run the ram volts a little high and leave timing at auto for now. Up the v core voltage a little and see what happens.

SUCCESS!! 4.1 ghz cup @ about 1.35 volts. Havent really oced ram, just upped timings and volts slightly (9/11/9/27 @ 1.55 volts) runs stable in prime, and doesnt get over 35c.

Now looking to up the gpu preformance. I've got msi after burner/kombustor, but the max fps i'm able to get with it is 35-38. Are there any better programs to oc the gpu in os? I don't really feel comfortable doing that threw the bios just yet.

No afterburner does it all in windows. You don't oc the gpu in bios. open after burner and go to setting. Choose unlock voltages so you can adjust the voltage of the card.

Here you will be working with core clock/shader clock/memory. The shader clock should always just be double what the core clock is. Leave the memory at stock. Up the core clock until unstable then up the voltage. It is allot like OC'ing the cpu but way easier.

Are you running cf with the apu and the gpu?

No I don't think i have cf. I'm just running a single gpu right now. I don't think the 6100 is an apu. It doesn't say anything about it on the box or anywhere else I've been reading up on them.

Huh, must of been thinking of something else. Thought the FX series was APU.

Anyway, follow the steps like you did with your cpu then.

Only thing you have to manipulate is the core clock and the voltage.

Really easy.

Use gpu-z to monitor voltages and make sure the oc took. Much like cpu-z, but for gpu.

Use 3dmark 11, unigen heaven, and kombustor to test.

Kombustor will test stablility and really test you temps.

The other 2 are bench marks and will simulate gaming. Unigen is the better of the 2 to test with since you can make adjustments to the settings. With kombustor if you make it more than 10 minutes then try the other 2.

Good luck. thumb.gif


Edit: Kombustor will show you your GPU temps if you do not have a temp monitor.

Ok so I've unlocked voltage control in afterburner, but its not letting me adjust it. I've maxed the core clock to 900mhz. Its not letting me go any farther than that. Memory clock is at 1100 with a little more room to go. do i need to restart the pc to get voltage control on?

Can't remeber what to do after you unlock it as I am using precision x now. What are all of the options in the window that you went to to unlock the voltage?

Damn this would have been helpful when I started using afterburner.
