1) I never said it wasn't possible.
2) It was possible that you could of blow your mobo without the right VRM cooling setup.
3) 3+1 and most 4+1 mobos are not design for ocing FX and most Phenom II x4/x6.
It is well know that 3+1 and some 4+1 mobo has failed when running any FX and Phenom II x4/x6 @ stock speed.
Plus a 6300 is a whole different beast then a Phenom II when it comes to power consumption. A 6300 can consume up to 140w @ stock speed.Edited by dixson01974 - 1/21/13 at 10:58am
