Help overcloking Fx-6300

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. First of all sorry my bad english.

So, I'm new at this thing of overcloking and want some advices from you guys.

Doing some researches about it, I found myself the easiest way for OC is just tweaking the CPU Multiplier and the Vcore Voltages.

Following this guide: http://www.overclock.net/t/1140459/bulldozer-overclocking-guide-performance-scaling-charts-max-ocs-ln2-results-coming , I changed my CPU multiplier and got 4,1 mhz (3,8 before OC), but I did not change the Vcore. Looking in the HWiNFO64, the current Vcore is 1,313V.

Playing BF3 for 1 hour, 51º temp on full work and about 25º idle, using the stock cooler.

My questions:
- Should I increase the Vcore? If so, what would change?
- Can I increase CPU Multiplier a little more?

Thanks.

You can bump the multiplier until your system is not stable (crashes in load tests like prime95 or cinebench etc). At that point you can add a bump of voltage and see if it is then stable at that clock speed and temperatures.

IIRC max vcore is 1.55v and you don't want it going over ~62C at load for extended periods of time. Outside of that, you have some room to work with.

What kind of cooler do you have?
If you are using the stock cooler I would not go very many clicks up on the voltage. You will probably reach 60ish C with 1.35-1.375

So I should bump the multiplier until crashes or errors in the tests, right? Then I bump the Vcore until my system get stable?
If I got it right, the Vcore is used to stabilize the system, am I correct?
And yeah, I'm using the stock cooler that came with the CPU.
Thanks.

Sounds like you got it.

Multiplier is the easiest for a coarse overclocking venture since you only affect the CPU speed, and don't have to worry about multipliers on HT/CPUNB/RAM.

Additional vcore will net you some additional headroom at the cost of increased temperatures and higher wattage consumed.

It should do 4.55 @ 1.4375V or so. Mines being there for around 6 months now
