Overclocking FX-6300 - Page 5

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.

any update regarding your oc??

i'm planning to get the same mobo and cpu, i just wonder if it will be a good match biggrin.gif

It went pretty well.. I just followed the advice given earlier and bumped the multiplier, set voltage on auto. Turned off turbo core...

Now, it's stable at 4.0ghz... smile.gif

hi guys, 4.6ghz 24/7 o/c stable, i currently use:

fx6300
asrock extreme3 (1.0? doesnt say r2.0)
2x4gb transcend 1600mhz ram (doesnt have any heatsink)
gelid tranquillo 1.0 HSF
2 small fans mounted on top of VRM

OC settings, literally all i changed is the CPU multiplier and just bumped the V abit:
CPU FSB 200mhz, 23x multi (4.6ghz), turbo off, spread spectrum off, Cool and Quiet ON, CPU 1.4v. everything else default: 2000mhz HT, 2000mhz NB

runs 55C on full load (20C when in desktop/browsing)

Good job, I have similar setting values overclocking a gigabyte microATX 4.65ghz daily smile.gif

How does the 6350 compare to the 6300 in overclocking ability? I did a partial upgrade on my rig recently. I will be putting on my old 120mm cpu cooler in the coming days. I want to find a decent everyday overclock that doesnt get too hot.

FX-6350
Gigabyte 970A-UD3
G.Skill Ripjaw X 1833
Thermaltake Toughpower 700w
Asus 5850 directcu

i'm curious, which mATX mobo do you use? I'm surprised the fx6300 could overclock at all with any mATX boards (which i dont think any would have heatsinked VRMs)

Have my 6300 @ 4.62 1.45V.But may drop to 4.6 and leave it there. The extra bit of V does heat things up a bit once you get above 1.4375 when stressing.

You would be surprised by mATX boards - some can def hold their own my friend...such as maximus v gene and the Gigabyte sniper series. My micro ATX has some beefy heatsinks its the GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 760G. Getting a steady 4.65ghz o.c. did take time, technique and patience. I also overclocked my Radeon hd 7850 twin frozr to 1050 core clock. All with a corsair 430w power supply lol. Although its been documented to be able to handle much much more power output. All the while AIR cooled (enermax) I'm leaning toward the Asrock extreme9 with fx-8350 and dual graphics cards all water cooled for my next effort..see how far I can push the o.c. fun smile.gif

I'm planning on getting a FX 6300. How does this board- GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 760G hold up? Will i be able to overclock to 4.8Ghz on this board without blowing the vrms? The board also only supports 1600Mhz ram. Will it have a problem running 1866Mhz or 2000Mhz ram? Since you have the board i would like to know this. Thanks smile.gif
