Overclocking FX-6100 Help - Page 2

post #11 of 17
you can touch the mosfets at 4ghz while running prime95 to check the temps.
make sure you touch the plastic part, and not the 3 metal pins part.

If you are able to keep your finger on the mosfet longer than 1 minute, the temp is fine.
if you will burn your finger within 5 seconds, dont overclock further

oh I see your mosfets have a heatsink on them.
That's good and should make them a lot cooler.

You can touch that big grey heatsink to feel the temperature.

Ran Prime95 for 30 minutes. Stuck my finger tips to the mosfets and I could hold them there without it burning me. They were not really even that hot. I'm starting to think that this board isn't as bad as most people put it out to be. It might be the fact that I'm not rocking an FX-8XXX. Which uses more watts.

that's good, you should be safe to overclock further up to 4.3ghz - 4.5ghz
it wont matter much though because even at stock, your FX6100 wont bottleneck your gpu.

Maybe in the future when you buy a faster card, you can clock the FX6100 to 4.5ghz

Yeah. I'm thinking of leaving it where it is for now. Playing it safe for the moment. Want to get a better case and faster GPU or maybe crossfire 2 of em.
