Overclocking FX-6300 - Page 3

post #21 of 163
the stock ht for my fx 6300 is 2400 but if i set ram manualy to 1600mhz ir drops to 2000.
Any problem running ht 2000 and nb 2000?

Prime is geared towards Intel chips. I like BurnInTest & AIDA64 Extreme Edition for testing. Also, leave all your CPU settings at DEFAULT when you begin. ONLY change the turbo mode to disabled. Save & restart. This will re-establish proper voltage and then get back into BIOS and you want to set the multiplier to get freq at 4.5 ghz with a higher than needed VCore around 1.45V - save & restart. Then keep decreasing VCore voltage until you cant load Windows hence finding the lowest working VCore voltage. Stress Test to establish good settings. Then work on the NB & CPU Host frequencies with the same type of methodology. Keep NB freq, CPU Host Freq, and HT freq all proportional (x10 multiplier helps calculating this). At the same time re-establish your RAM timings and voltage (known good settings) to coincide with these changes so your system will boot properly - having high frequency RAM helps a lot but I got 4.73 ghz CPU freq with 1333mhz RAM and a 1.3V VCore smile.gif I hope this helps.

Also O.C.'d my Radeon hd 7850 to 1050 core and 1350 mem smile.gif

Hiya,

I admit to being a newb , i am doing my first ever overclock. So i think the protocol is for me to describe my system first.

Cpu = FX 6300
Mobo=Asus M5A99FX Pro R2.0
Ram= 4 gig DDR3
Gpu = FXF HD 6850
Cooler= Titan Fenrir Evo
PSU= FXF pro750w
OS= Win7

I upgraded wednesday from a Phenom II 6x 1055t




I dont claim any particular stability as i really cant see much point in tests as i dont play tests, i play games! and my games are all playing fine.
Now maybe im lucky (there's a 1st for everything) and i got a good processor but i got to 4.8 just by playing with the ratio/multiplier and the bus speed. I basically followed advice given on this Forum(thanks guys) and turned off all the power saving sh oops stuff and turbo things etc. The last .2 was got by increasing the volts to 1.44 and doing another 1/2 on the multiplyer, oh and i turned the DDR down one notch. I have to say that once i got used to the mobo it made things easy. According to HWINFO32 my motherboard is 25 deg C and my Cpu is 33 deg C, i know that will increase when im gaming but what it is i dont have a clue.
Anyway what im trying to say is if i can overclock the FX 6300 to 5 gigs anyone can.

Any suggestions on how i can monitor my temps while actually gaming would be most welcome as would any advice that would help me maintain what i already have as i really have no desire to try to go any further. And yes i will be upgradeing my Graphix card when finances allow, im considering a Sapphire HD7950 3gb Vapor-X. So is that a good choice for the money(i cant afford the 7970 version as its £100 more)

Wow thats a long 1st post, sorry guys hope i didnt bore you too much.

So you dont know what your temps are when your gaming? Cpuid hw will save mn and max temps so imo run that in background, start your game then play for five mins and shut it or alt n tab out, its not as accurate but helps, Im currently stress testing 4.5ghz with my fsb @ 200 and 1.4v and my core is 40 under full stress test with the evo not the pro and a thermalright silver arrow extreme on a push n pull

I am running mine at 4.8 without problems. My temps run no more than mid 50 c but I am running a corsair H55 water cooler not air. I had to bump my NorthBridge Voltage by .025 I think if memory serves me right to get it stable after that I was able to walk back down my CPU voltage to 1.44 without problems. It runs Prime 95 for hours without problems and temps remain good. WARNING DONT GO crazy on the voltages take your time and keep it slow. Only adjust one thing at a time. I have pushed mine up to 5.0 but the volts required just is not worth it because of the heat. My problem came from my NorthBridge getting warm pushing 70 C. I had to spend sometime figuring that out. Without a CPU fan moving the air across the MB it not getting airflow. Well a side mounted fan fixed that.

I hit 4.8 but voltages were 1.52 and didnt want to kill it, first oc and all, will look at upping nb a little see if i can drop core voltage thanks

So how does this puppy perform as a gamer? I want to do an AM3+ build, but I'm not sure I want to go all out 8 core until Steamroller. $130 to $140 for this chip sounds like a great deal though. It's only $10 more than the 4300. (Good luck selling your 4 bangers guys. What were you thinking AMD rolleyes.gif) Anywho....I'd be happy with around 4.5 as long as the voltages weren't too crazy.

I can hit ultra on bf3 with two hd 5770's crossfire at 8x each running stock, load times are a little slow but think thats my hdd but no stuttering or lag once im in
