Overclock FX 6100

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all, need some help overclocking this CPU.

Its being very difficult right now. I cant even get 3.8ghz stable using the multi :S

Could somebody please post what settings i should disable/enable and some rough numbers to get me to 4ghz?

Specs of the PC

990FXA-UD7
FX 6100
2*4gb Dominator 1600mhz (Wont even run at it, i change the memory multi to 6 and up the volts to 1.65 (rams default stocks) and the PC fails to boot)


If anybody could please point me in the right direction, would greatly appreciate it smile.gif

Cheers

What's your IMC voltage at? Perhaps it needs a bump?

Also, what cooling are you using?

I also heard that the FX Series likes having the FSB bumped instead of the multiplier changed, try that instead smile.gif

Turn off turbo and APM. Then its like overclocking Phenom, raise clocks and voltage and test it.

Hey,my FX-6100 hates to overclock, really difficult to get it to overclock stably.

Apparently its better to use the multiplier, but to be honest I have had better results using the FSB.

Try 1.4v+ CPU VID and I am sure it'll boot. My chip NEEDS over 1.4v to even boot once overclocked.

Firstly I thought I was doing something wrong, turns out the chip just doesn't like overclocking. Maybe the FX-6100 is the worst overclocker.

My settings to get it up to 4.2 Ghz stable using multiplier

I forced my DRAM to stay at 1333mhz (its native freq)

FSB 200
Multi 22
CPU NB Freq 2000mhz
DRAM 1.5
NB volt 1.2
CPU VID 1.42 (with LLC if you have it)

I always start with high voltage then drop it.
