A better review of the FX-6300 and the FX-4300:

Seems I'll be buying the 6300 when my local store has it in stock...

I really like my FX-6300. Right now I am at 4.8 Ghz and that's air cooled. Just got done playing Blacklight Retribution on maxed out settings. RAM O.C.'d from 1333 to 1600 and my Radeon hd 7850 gpu with core clock of 1050 and memory clock at 1350. All on a microATX board (albeit 8 pin CPU power connector intact). My temps are below 55 degrees full load for the CPU and even lower for the board thumb.gif

Oh and I have a 3570k setup as well, its...okay. I'm not too excited about intel motherboards at the moment (had two boards crap out on me - MSI G45 and ASUS Maximus V Gene). This AMD setup cost me less money and grief - Gigabyte makes a pretty solid board. Overclocking is way more fun with the FX-6300 at the moment. My 3570k is liquid cooled and temps aren't that much different. My games also seem smoother with AMD.

I've built my fourth 6300 box as of this weekend. It is a great price to performance in order to get office staff in to SSD for a $500 budget. The only real beef I have is a decent, low budget, mobo with video out. Also, make sure you splurge on 1600 or greater RAM to cover the pci-e graphics deficiency. Mhz is more important than timing with the integrated VGA on these things.

the FX6300 has a stock turbo of 4.1 GHz so what you saw in anandtech were all stock.

i have one, but i have a crap mobo and cooler, so i will get a new mobo and cooler and oc to 4.6 (i heard its stabgle on air)

pretty good chip for $130

i have it paired with a gtx 660 non ti and can handle bf3 on ultra at 1600x900 no problem, not at 60 fps all the time but can do.

I just recently built a new system with an FX 6300, I'm pretty happy with it. I haven't gotten it stable though above the 4100Mhz that it automatically overclocks to. I tried out 4500Mhz since I have a Cooler Master radiator with 2 corsair high static pressure fans attached. At 4500MHz I can't get past the windows password screen without a BSOD. I brought it down to 4400Mhz and it appeared stable for maybe 45 minutes playing skyrim...the temp never went above 27 degrees Celcius, but eventually I got a BSOD. Tried it again to see if it was just a fluke and got another BSOD after about the same amount of time.

Anyone know of a good setting that should be stable? I had left the FSB at 200Mhz and just changed the multiplier, but I may try 215Mhz and play around with the multiplier on that to see if there's a more stable combination. I'm just worried I might fry the CPU or mobo, since I've been told the temp isnt the only thing that matters. Anyone have any advice as to what to try/avoid?

Interestingly enough my MSI motherboard came with an OC Genie setting, so I tried that and windows wouldn't even load. I went into the BIOS and saw that it had the CPU up to 215x22 at 4730Mhz, lol. I set it back down to the default 200x17.5 @ 3500Mhz, but it doesn't appear to be automatically overclocking to 4100Mhz, so I may need to reset the BIOS. Any guidance is appreciated as this is the first time I've really gotten serious about overclocking.

What did you have the FSB and multiplier set to? I cant get mine to be stable even at 4400Mhz.
