CHV/FX6300 Issues

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
I just got a 6300 today to play around with and its been everything but playing so far, this thing is driving me crazy and I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, I updated the BIOS to 1703 before I pulled my 960T. So far I cant get the frequency to read reliable anywhere but the BIOS, CPU-Z and Coretemp are at the moment reading 3.8ghz however the BIOS and Win7 are saying its at 3.5ghz, the temp readings are flucuating all over the place but from the things I've read it seems the FX's are a little random with temp readings until they go under load. However my biggest issue is no matter what settings I use I cant seem to get the CHV to like this chip at all, I mean it wont cold boot or restart on a regular basis without trying to boot it several times. Any amount of OC and it just locks up, I had the bios lock up on me twice when I was trying to adjust somethings, I'm guessing I'm missing something obvious or I'm having a hardware issue, however I did pop my 960T back in and reloaded the saved OC profile from it and everything fired right back up no issues, booted fine multiple times in a row. I know it seems like alot of issues all at once but any help would be appreciated.

-Wont boot consistently at all no matter the settings, OC or not it still hangs (wont post, black screen with no video output)
-OCing just isn't happening, tried the auto settings, the OC profiles and manual settings
-Wont shutdown all the way either, WIN7 will go through its full shutdown screens then the PC just doesnt shut off.
-Temps and Frequency are inconsistent everywhere, however its always saying 3.8ghz when all settings are at the stock 3.5ghz, I tried turning all the C1E, TurboCore etc. On/Off and in different combinations and Im just stumped at this point.

System Specs below are up to date with the exception of the 6300 I added today.

Thanks again for any help!

Try connecting all your USB devices to the black 2.0 ports and skip the 3.0.

See if that gets rid of BIOS freezing and hangs during shutdown.

My Crosshair V hates my Logitech illuminated USB keyboard. I have to use it on a 2.0 port.

If that helps with the BIOS and shutdown, I'll ramble on about my OC settings.

I've a 6300 on the Crosshair V with BIOS 1703. I run 4.66GHz 24/7 on air and can bench 4.99GHz as much as I like. If I moved to quality water cooling I've no doubt 4.99 would be fine for 24/7.

Another thing to try if you're having trouble after switching CPUs. Load defaults in your BIOS. Save and exit. Turn off your computer. If possible turn off your PSU after shutdown. If it doesn't have a switch, unplug it. Hold your start button in on the computer for 10 secs. Now clear the BIOS with the reset button on the back of the mobo. Wait 10 mins. Enable the PSU again. Start your computer and go into the BIOS. Set it how you wish. Don't forget to properly set your date and time. They'll be off.

I'll try the USB switch tonight as soon as I get home and see how it works, the boot and shut down part just had me scratching my head because before it was perfectly fine other then the occassional hang if I tried a reboot.

When I first bought the Crosshair V I had occasional freezing in the BIOS and hangs when shutting down. Those vanished when I moved my Logitech illuminated keyboard to a black USB 2.0 port.

There is no native USB 3.0 support on the Crosshair V. USB 3.0 is supported thanks to the inclusion of the ASMedia ASM1042 controllers. They require drivers.

The boot and shutdown issues seem to be gone after moving things off the USB3 ports, little bummed that they are causing a issue though since I leave my card reader/keyobard/mouse/bluray etc hooked up, Ill probably mess with that some later but for now at least 1 issue is fixed, Im still stumped on the chip itself, I'm getting inconsistent clock readings and temp readings everywhere.



The really odd thing to me is the Bios is saying Im at 4599mhz and cpu-z/coretemp are saying 4756mhz, seems a good amount off to me, when I leave everything on Auto the bios says 3500 mhz but cpu-z/coretemp are showing 3865mhz. Needless to say I'm pretty confused, what settings are you using across the board on yours? cpu/ram/cpu features etc.

CPU clock all over the place sounds like turbo + APM + C1E etc.

When I set 4669MHz in the BIOS CPU-Z reports 4684. 4973MHz set in the BIOS gets me 4990MHz in CPU-Z. That's 23 or 24.5 x 203.

I'd disable turbo, C1E, Core C6 State and APM. Set the Ai Overclock tuner to manual. Set your CPU Bus Frequency to 200. Disable CPU and PCI-e Spread Spectrum. Make sure ECC is off, that may cause flaky behavior if you're not using ECC ram. Disable any onboard hardware you aren't using. Manually set your proper ram speed timings and voltage.

For now, while searching for your max CPU clock, keep your link speed and NB speed set to auto. You may alter them later if you wish.

I should note I have my power options in windows set to high performance, not balanced.

Below is a good guide for the Crosshair V-

Thanks so much Black, Ecc and Apm were enabled, once I killed them and reset the Ram timings shes purring right along now, I'm gonna watch those vids from that link and start playing with some OCing tomorrow night to see where I get. I'll update here tomorrow sometime and let you know how the chip does! Thanks again!

You're most welcome. I'm glad you've got things stable.

Well so far it seems I got a weak chip, anything past about 4.4 and core 6 fails in P95.

Hmm,

Some PD cores may get flaky when they're above 55C for extended durations. Some do fine over 62C. You don't want over 61C or so and for something brutal like Prime, it may happen. So I wouldn't sweat it in that particular instance. I believe 70C is the max temp for the 6300. So I wouldn't want Prime to push it too close to that.

In addition to playing with vcore you could try VDDA @ around 2.61-2.69 and LLC set to Ultra High (75%). Obviously, watch your temps.

Try the x264 FHD bench @ 4.5 and then IBT. If you survive those go back to Prime again. I always use the x264 FHD bench for a quick test. If vcore is too low, it will crash or stop working. Then I do IBT, then Prime.

If you don't have them you may download them below.
