Just got a New AMD FX 6300, Should I overclock it ? - Page 3

Do you add voltage to NB?

This week waiting for my FX6300, which will replace FX6200 in another PC.

When overclocked, the FX6200 would make some games hyperspeed - hope that won't be the case with FX6300.

Im buying an 6300 to replace my old athlon, I heard you can get 5ghz out of it.
Plus its only £100. I got my athlon ii x2 245 oc from 2.9 - 3.400 at 1.475 volts
233.8 x 14.5. Its been running like that for a year now.

That is a motherboard problem, not a CPU problem. Could probably be fixed with a BIOS update.

I'm looking at oc'ing for the first time, i too have just purchased the fx 6300, currently have a stock cooler with a gigabyte 970-ds3 mb, looking to air cool any recommendations for cooler around £40 budget, and some advice on where to start with oc, never overclocked b4

Good starting point for heat sink reviews

I can tell you what my 6300 does:

4.36 with 1.34v
4.66 with 1.42v
4.84 with 1.48v
4.97 with 1.49v

I'm on air cooling. 4.97 is a bench only clock. I can bench and game on 4.84. 4.66GHz is my 24/7 air OC.

If I moved to quality water cooling I could likely hold 4.97.

with that cooeler 4.5 for everyday use should be doable. Otherwise 4.2 with slight v increase and all power saving options enabled (only turbo disable)
i would go for something like that

hello,

list of guides to follow here,

http://www.overclock.net/t/226939/amd-cpus-current-tech-essentials-older-tech-link-included

please read a guide to understand how your bios setting work.

I like this one the most,

http://www.overclock.net/t/1348623/amd-bulldozer-and-piledriver-overclocking-guide-asus-motherboard

if you do understand then its easy as this....

please monitor your temp with hwmonitor and cpu-z for reading clocks,

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

71c of any cpu temp [cpu or core temp] is max, then....

one: go in to bios, hit del at start-up till you get to a blue-grey screen before windows.

two: go to the advanced tab, then go in to cpu config and disable cool and quite and everything there on that tab.(c1e,c6 state, hpc and apm (application power management))

three: press esc and go down one to northbridge, go in there and theres one thing to go in to , there you will see ECC enabled, disable that.( happens on asus mobo's)

now for the overclock......

four: got to the ai tuner tab of bios and change it to manual from auto.

five: got to cpu ratio and change to 20 x

six: disable turbo core

seven: go to ref clock and change to 200

eight: change your ram to the right speed, 1600mhz or whatever and set your ram timings.

nine: go to cpu load line config and change to high (I use ultra high on my m5a99x evo and on the sabretooth i found it to be medium)

ten: go to cpu voltage change to manual and change that to 1.29v (1.325v is stock).

now got to that last tab in bios save and exit.

you should now boot at 4ghz and be near stable under full load.

download cpu test programs

hyper pi is a memory test program, but it runs cooler than most cpu tests and will usually crash with os still running.
good for instantly knowing if your cpu is nearing stability.

http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Info/Hyper-PI.shtml

occt is stability test program, will usually crash hardware and software if cpu/system is unstable.
good for long term oc tests.

http://www.ocbase.com/

need to test your cpu load line config with a heavy load ,use hyper pi, watch your voltage and give it a 1m test, what voltage do you get under full load, move you load line up or down for increases or decreases to voltage and make it level under full load
if you go extreme llc, lower voltage of cpu as it will climb a bit under load.

now run a full hour cpu test to see if it's stable, I used occt medium test for 2 hours.

EDIT;this is my copy and paste advice for fx.

I did manage to get six core of the eight up to 4.6ghz with 1.464v showing in cpu-z.
it had heat issues after that, and my mobo is only a 6+2 vrm.

I think stock NB speed for Vishera is 2400. Bulldozer was 2200.

Just thought id update you guys, I currently have the stock cooler so havent played with the cpu yet, upgraded my ram to 1600mhz gskills ripjaws (4gb x2) bios on my gigabyte a970-ds3 revision 1.1 with f6 bios (up to date) was being recognised as 1333mhz, took me a bit of digging and had to change everything to manual in M.I.T. to clock the memory to 1600mhz, it still shows up max bandwidth as 10666 in cpu-z but is now running at 800mhz which if im right in assuming this is now running at 1600mhz? if I'm wrong advice would be appreciated thanks
