Overclocking FX-6300 - Page 4

post #31 of 163
And that was at stock 3.5ghz
post #32 of 163
Ok update on this 6300 of mine. I play basically one game its World of Tanks and the dang thing only uses one core. Talk about crap programming. Anyway I decided to see how far I can go with this baby just taking my time and slowly working it up.

I went in a disabled two cores as I figured that would allow me more power to the other cores so I would be able to bump it up slowly without adding voltage.

Well I am stable with 4 cores running at 5023MHZ pushing 1.456 volts on the core and .200 increase on North Bridge. The CPU temps under prime have climbed to 64.1 C with a North Bridge temp on my GIG 990 FXA UD7 board of 76 C. That is under torture test which my game doesn't even come close to doing using only one core. The thing stays as 41 C CPU and NB at 42 C while gaming. With my HD 7850 Overclocked at 1050 1300mhz I am max all graphics settings and 1920x1080 pushing 85 FPS. Overall very happy with this system. Will update when I tweak it more.

Heh. Makes me wonder how one of those "dual core" Trinitys would perform on those kinds of games. Overclocked, of course.

yes ive also disable my 2 cores much easier to get it run in 4.7 and upp smile.gif but my question is how does one get it to downclock so the its not runing in 4.7 when idling ? i use cpu z is there a better program more suited for amd cpus ?

Turn the power saving options back on once stable, you only need them off to help with the clocking and stress testing, cpuz is fine for amd

Thank you for the answer smile.gif no next question what is / does the "adjust cpu-nb ration mean/do ? and the same for the "cpu-nb voltage" does increasing any of thes help overclock my cpu in any way ? and what are their defultish valus ?and keep in mind that that my priorty is to oc the cpu.i have a msi 990 fx gd 65 mobo.

Look for the bulldozer/piledriver overclocking guide all the info and recomendations are in there

Hello Guys,

I've recently purchased some components for my budget gaming rig (I'm using some of my old components, as well and plan to add better components later on); and I came across this thread. I purchased an AMD FX 6300 as I knew it was a good performer for its price tag and was thinking of getting a mild overclock, just for that extra performance.

My rig setup is:

CPU - FX 6300
Mobo - Asrock 970 Extreme3 R2.0
HDD - Samsung F3 Spinpoint 500GB
RAM - 4 x 2GB Transcend DDR3 1333Mhz**
Cooler - NZXT Respire T20
PSU - FSP Aurum 750watts
Case - Inwin Mana 136
Fan - 120mm Xilence Red Wing (on side panel)

**My RAM are some old ones that I'm trying to utilize as RAM prices are just plain outrageous at this time and would buy when prices settle down.

Given that my components are not really for hardcore Overclocking... I am planning to get these thing up to 4.0 Ghz from stock 3.5 Ghz by just bumping Multiplier and some CPU voltage. As my RAM are old value ones, I'm not keen on altering any RAM settings also...

Can you guys advise me on what CPU voltage I should start on with 4.0 Ghz goal? With the current component, is it the right path to just alter only multiplier and CPU voltage (no fine tuning involved)? What do you suggest I should do (I'm not a very experienced OCer but only know some basic stuffs from what I have read). Thank you.

Chances are good that you won't need to change the voltage for 4.0ghz. I'm at 4.2ghz leaving volts on auto, turning off power savings, turbo core and upping the multiplier.

Computerstore has written a good guide for overclocking amd piledriver chips although its on asus boards the settings shouldnt be much different using an asrock
