Bad overclocking FX-6300 with Biostar TA990FXE

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Hallo guys smile.gif

I have been searching for FX-6300 overclocking in many forums, they all has been successfully clocked at 4,5-4,7GHz in 1,38-1,42V vcore using air cooler. So I trying to overclock my system too, but I faced with problems.

Case 1:
My brand new FX-6300 just stuck stable in 4,1GHz@1,425v . It's passed 15 minutes of Prime95. But I think it's to much vcore at that frequencies and I can't get stable if i lower the vcore

Case 2:
I managed the chip in 4,3GHz@1,44v but lowering the DRAM to 1333 . Then I ran Prime95, it pass for 15 minutes except core #5 and core #6 always error after one minute of torturing. But the system ran very well in daily use even in gaming.

Case 3:
I can't go any higher than 4,3GHz even at 1,47v, it will keep BSOD after few minutes I run Prime95. I won't increase the vcore any further because in my mind that vcore number is too high for that frequency (am I right?)

So, what's wrong with my chip? or the problem are from my motherboard or my PSU? or I have to change the RAM timing to get stable?


PS:
- I updated my bios to the latest, but it still the same
- All power saving features disabled
- I just change CPU multi, Vcore, and DRAM freq in this OC


Thanks for your concern smile.gif

M8, thats way to much Vcore, that is enough for 4.5, try to clear cmos.

add multi untill it wont boot, then clr cmos and restore last bootable settings. add voltage and then increase multi. Check temps and stress test using P95 for 10 mins. Report back

OK, I will report my progress step by step.

-So, I just add multi at stock 1.38v Vcore from 3.5>3.8>4.0>4.1>4.2>4.3>4.4 and at this point it fail at windows loading screen.
-I increase voltage in "overvoltage configuration" +0.05, so my vcore is 1.43. Multi from 4.4>4.5>4.6, and it got BSOD in desktop.
-Back to bios again and +0.10, and my vcore is 1.48 . log into windows>run prime95>aaaand BSOD just in seconds frown.gif
-Back again to bios set multi to 4.5>booting success>run prime just in seconds core#5 and core#6 errors as usually>my max temp about 53 celcius and after 6 minutes back in BLUE SCREEN mad.gif


In idle my vcore fluctuated between 1.48 to 1.50, and in stressing I noticed in CPU-Z that my vcore is drop to 1.45. Is that okay? or I'm guessing that my AcBel 470W pure 430W cannot supply the power?

I would think you need a strong PSU to power that, a strong 550 watt is an option, untill then, go back to stock volts and set it to 4.3, try that... if BSOD then add 1 voltage and try again

hmm okay, I think I will borrow my friend's corsair GS600 to make sure that my PSU is the suspect. If it turns out i'm a dead man with my chip or mobo doh.gif

Anyway thank you so much for helping me through bro Pedroc1999.

Any other advise will be great for me! thumb.gif

Yeah, if you want to OC without adjusting the multi more, use the FSb (BLCK), some chips OC better like this than others, try that

wow okay man, I will try that.
I have done this before on my Athlon X4 635 with this motherboard, crank up from 2,9 to 3,55 easily. If I can't do that in vishera I will migrate to ARM platform drum.gifbiggrin.gif

The TA990fxe is a crappy motherboard for overclocking. the 4+1 phase is not good enough. the vdroop is nasty on them. Also there is no LLC on them either. My best recommendation to you, is either settle for the 4.1ghz or sell the board and get a gigabyte 990fxa UD3/UD5/UD7.
good luck ND

You have no clue about a Biostar TA990FXE mobo if you think it is a crappy mobo.

In the "overvoltage configuration" set the CPU voltage to +0.400v and in the AMD P-state set the CPU voltage to 1.1v and have fun.
