Advice on FX-6300 OC/Temps

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I've been tinkering around with my second build for a while now, but I'm looking to squeeze some more out of my CPU.

Here's my rig:

CPU: AMD FX-6300
COOLER: OEM Corsair H60 w/ Push/Pull
MOBO: GIGABYTE 990FX-UD3
GPUs: HIS Radeon 7950 and MSI Radeon 7950 Twin Frozr III CrossfireX
P/S: Corsair HX750
RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance
SSD: 60GB OCZ Agility 3
HDD: 2TB Seagate Barracuda
CASE: Fractal Design MIDI R2

Currently, I'm running my FX-6300 at 4.39Ghz, but judging by others' results I think I can go higher.

My Vcore is 1.416V Idle, and 1.464V under load with my LLC settings.

Currently this overclock is 24/7 Prime95 Stable. I also installed the 60mm fan that's included with the stock heatsink over the VRMs on my Motherboard to aid in cooling.

Here is a picture of my Temperatures after 30 mins of Prime95.

I'm a little confused however, is TMP2 my CPU Socket/VRM temp? Or is it my CoreTemp?

If TMP1 is my CPU CoreTemp, I think I have at least 5 degrees more headroom to go up.


What do you think? Can I push her even higher??

Sure....



And that's with the stock cooler.

What were temps at load with the stock cooler at that frequency?? Mine does 4.4ghz at 1.36v but temps hold me frtom going any further.

1.55v is typically a good limit. Anything too far past that might cause damage over time, but you should be fine up to then. Socket temps (the CPU temp HWInfo and Speedfan give by default) should be below 72 degrees C and core temp (what AMD Overdrive gives under the CPU monitor tab) under 62. Be very careful with that motherboard though: there have been reports of it melting (especially with the octacore CPUs), but the 8+2 phase should allow decent-to-good overclocking potential until then. I'm not sure if it's more likely to melt than others or if the reports are just more publicized, but be careful nonetheless.
