Overclocking a AMD 6100.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
New to overclocking id like to share my experience in overclocking the 6100 by AMD. All overclocks are done on Stock Voltages, Turbo Disabled, and everything on AUTO.

The Tools:
ADIA64 Extreme Edition - http://www.aida64.com/
AI Suite II 2.01.01 - http://www.asus.com/
Core Temp - http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

The Build:

AMD FX-6100, 3300 MHz (16.5 x 200)
Patriot Viper Extreme - 4 GB DDR3-1600 DDR3 SDRAM (2x Stick = 8GB)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 (1048256 KB)
ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0
Corshair H6 in Push-Pull

The Results:



Benchmark:

Cinebench 11.5
Stock: 3.82
Overclock 5: 3.89
180 * 18.5: 3.66
OpenGL: 35.10 fps

Final:

Windows Index Score (Windows 7)
Stock: 7.1
Overclock 5: 7.3

Any question or comments or Benchmark Requests?

Questions:

FX 6100 should not pass 55*C? - Answered
You can overclock this CPU to 4.0 Ghz on Stock Voltage? - Answered
How far would you suggest increase in voltage with no MOSFET cooling? - Answered
Any suggestions on why #5 and #6 core are the only ones to Error or Warn? - Un-Answered
Would I be best off disabling cores #5 and #6? - Un -Answered

Fan Change:

I put a 120MM fan in the front and 80MM on the Bottom to blow more air into the case. Noticed some Dust in the Rad, blew that out and took some temps on Stock. Ran Prime95 as I did for the other tests.

Stock: High 37*C. ( -2*C )

Can you please include some benchmarks from Cinebench r11.5¿

What kind of cooling do you have?

Nice oc on stoxk voltage btw thumb.gif

In answer to your questions

1. The max core temperature for your cpu is 70 degrees but try to keep it below this.

2. It is possible

3. Without vrm cooling i would not increase the volts much beyond the stock value. I think your motherboard will throttle your cpu speed to prevent damage.

How would you go about doing so? (Overclocking to 4Ghz Stock Voltage.)

I think my Ram, CPU or Motherboard is screwed. The person that owned this computer before me did some 'Overclocking'. I told him at least 10 times to Use Prime95. Anyway, long story shorter. He maxed the CPU at 4 Ghz, High Voltage, no Stress testing. And ran on the goal, if it boots, it works.

I have no idea how much damage was done to the parts (If any). But If I overclock to anything over 16.5 on Multiplier or 210 FSB, Prime95 shoots out Errors or Warnings.

Any Ideas?


South80: Thank You for the Information. Any suggestions on Coolers? Or would I be best off getting a better board?
My Budget is low due to being unemployed.

I highly doubt the board is damaged. The vrm's would have reduced the cpu's speed and voltage before any damage could have been caused.

I would advise testing the memory using memtest or if you are using windows 7 then the built-in memory diagnostic tool is usefull.

The prime95 errors could be caused by a number of reasons. You might not have enough voltage or seeing as you are increasing the fsb, your memory might be running outside of its rated speed.

In answer to your last question, no. Dont get another board but get some aftermarket vrm heatsinks. Your cpu cooler is fine.

Thank You Vary Much! You guys are being vary helpful.

I did some research and Newegg.com has close to same Ram posted and it says the Voltage of the Ram is 1.65 Volts. Is that about normal? Because ASUS is reading 1.5 Volts.

Also, ill be posting new temps vary soon, if not tonight. I reworked some of the fans in my case. I added a 120MM fan in the Front to pull in Air and a 80MM on the Bottom. I layed the case it its side, not to interfere with the Bottom fan.

Edit: Sure enough, the website says 1.5v and 1.65v on the products, but different Timings.

Use cpu-z to find the accurate voltage and timings for the ram.
