post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hi i have a amd fx 6300 and i overclocked it to 4.1(pretty good for a ecs mobo but it can still go further just didn't get time to do it) so i lunched prime 95 again today and opened cpuid and the voltages are fluc. so is this normal or what? plz i need help i am damaging the system? so here it it is at 3.264 and it fluctuating from that to 3.296 but not over that! so ya you pro"s gotta help me here

hey guys just noticed that the core speed is fluctuating too so i guess that is making the voltage do the same thing is there a fix?

What ECS motherboard are you using and is your FX6300 125w?

col and quiet will cause those multi fluctuations you can turn it off. the 6300 is 95w it will do 4.6 on air with cpuv at around 1.4375 to 1.,45 it will do 4.7 ot water but can get hot.

I found his sig rig specs in his profile, and his motherboard is an ECS A960M-M3. That may have to do with it.

 

The A960M-M3 is a low-end board. It is low-priced because it was not designed with high-level multi-core overclocking in mind. It does not have a VRM setup meant for handling high voltages and overclocked 6-cores safely or consistently. 125W TDP processors are largely excluded from the CPU support list (this seems to be happening with Phenom II series, but not FX). Limited-capacity 3+1 phase power has a very bad record with multicore AMDs across all brands.

 

The processor voltage and speed fluctuation may be an over-current protection safety feature that prevents your VRMs from extreme overheat. Can you describe your problem with more detail? Are there any problems with CPU temperatures, etc?
