AMD FX-6100 Unstable?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Why does my cpu keep throttling from x17-x7 multiplier? I do have it set at x17, but it keeps throttling. I opened Metro, and the game was in fast motion... :/ I'm baffled.

if you haven't messed with the bios (set at default), then most probably Cool & Quiet is enabled combined with Windows' Balance power option.When cpu power is needed the cpu will boost to the highest multiplier of x17. This is my guess.

Cool n' Quiet was disabled. I think it's because I didn't have the voltage high enough. I increase the voltage, and now it's veryyy stable a 4GHz.

Is the overclock stable? Run Prime 95 along with your temp recording program to see how hot it gets.
Throttling can be due to the CPU reaching high temps and auto throttling so your motherboard VRMs don't overheat.

what's your voltage for 4GHz?

op, this guide might help you get a stable oc and use prime95 for at least half a day to test for stability.
