FX-6300 help needed

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
i have recently bought a fx-6300 as an upgrade to my 4100 which was a beast but i needed more cpu power. i have been looking everywhere to find out the stock volts at 3.5ghz since i should be able to get 4.1-4.2ghz on stock. im currently on 4.2ghz with 1.332v. i cant push it any more as im hitting the 60 degree mark with my hyper T4 with NF-F12 in p/p

To answer the cooling question, remove a side panel and set up a house fan blowing into the case. If that solves the problem, then it was case ventilation.

You co have all automatic overclocking and voltage control disabled, don't you?

What you have not mentioned is your room temp During prime it should get 30 to 40 above ambient. If you room is 25 than during prime it will hit 55 and above its that simple. The hotter your room, ambient temp, the hotter the cpu will run. Paste should be as thin as needed not thick.

Well I dont have a way to check my ambient temp but I am in Australia abs it is quite cool here and my room doesnt have ac if that helps. The outside temp is no higher then 17 when I stressing it

This is a 'issue' all FX machines have, your motherboard measures the temperature of the CPU socket. The CPU or core temperature is measured by the CPU itself, personally I wouldn't rely on the core temp with FX cpu's, since they seem to output temperatures that are too low?
For example I see my FX 8320 idling at 12C while my room is 22C (using air cooling).

In short it's not your program.

The fx series isn't accurate at idle. At load it makes more sense.
