Most Overclockable AMD CPU? (Budget) - Page 7

post #61 of 186
Thread Starter 
I'm willing to spend a max of $100 for a motherboard, but preferably $75,
I'm wiling to also get the FX-6300, i really dont want to buy another cooler.
It's hard to make money considering im only 15, i've been making money doing some server sided work, but i haven't got business in forever, i litterally have $2 in PayPal. I'm trying to get an idea of what to get before i actually get it, ya know?

Off topic -
If you guys ever played a game called WarZ or Infestation Survivor stories, you would know the source code got leaked, and people make remakes of the game, like DeadZ. Well i made one called Last Generartion, and it was the first emulator to have fully working bandit AI, that i coded in. I used to sell the Bandit AI system, until my entire source code got leaked, so i can't make money anymore.
But now im working on a helictoper system and re-did the AI.

I have an H60 and 8350, I really can't push the chip past 4.6 Ghz without going to extreme and almost damaging temps, regardless of airflow through the rad. 4.6Ghz is a good overclock though, you're not going to notice much performance gain after this anyway.

Why must you absolutely hit 5Ghz? A 8350 at 4.6Ghz would beat a 6300 at 5Ghz in benchmarks anyway. Is it just the satisfaction of hitting 5Ghz regardless of performance and cores in use?

So right now this what is what i've borught my options down to.

FX-6300
FX 8370 or E.
Or Athlon X4 860K.

And play the silicon lotto.

I also need motherboard options. Something cheap, red color sheme, and good for overclocking.

Asrock z87 extreme3 103usd/Asrock z97 extreme3 109 usd
An used i5 4670k 160-170usd

A 8370e with a 70usd mobo reaches about the same price

You can get a Fatality 990fx Killer for about $135, super good board.

I think the used route like@PontiacGTX is recommending would be better for you as well.
A sub-$100 970 chipset board isn't going to OC for you very well and would be the limiting factor for further upgrades.

You could also look at the Pentium g3258 and a sub $100 board like the MSI z97 PC MATE. Those in combination with your cooler would get you a solid OC.

Not sure why you really need 5 ghz, but you should not consider the 860k which will probably top out at around 4.5-4.6 ghz. A 760k can hit 5 ghz if you throw good enough cooling at it, and it's cheap.

Now, that being said, an 860k @ 4.5 ghz should perform at least as well as a 760k @ 5 ghz.

If you want a hexcore CPU, the 6300 will probably be your best bet, though managing the heat from one will be a bit of a chore. You could do that on pretty good air. A stock nh-d15 would probably work.

Octocore at 5 ghz is doable on air, but it will have to be best-of-breed. You will want an 8320E, 8370E, or MAYBE the 8310 (not sure if it features the low-leakage silicon found in the E chips). All reports indicate that the E chips are using less voltage at any given clockspeed than, say, the 8350 or 8370. 5 ghz will still be a tall order. I wouldn't try it without using an nh-d15, high-output replacement fans (think noisy Deltas or maybe Nidecs), and maybe a shroud to keep airflow focused across the fins. Plus possible lapping for the CPU, and some CLU. At that point, you are spending so much on your cooling that you'd be better off just buying the 9590 that includes an AIO cooler. It will turbo to 5 ghz, and you might even be able to peg all 8 cores @ 5 ghz using the cooler that comes with it. 9590 prices have dropped like a stone lately.

Also of note: the 9370 is now below $200.

If you're really looking for overclocking on a budget, in my opinion, your best bet is to get:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128651&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=9494388

Note that the 8310 is only $110 through the 24th of this month (in other words, 2 days from now).

Or just go with the 8320E.

Anyway, that way you get 8 cores, a motherboard with an 8+2 phase power design, decent overclocking up to around 4.5 ghz without needing to push too much voltage (especially on the 8320E; not really sure about the 8310), and a price of around $200 or less (definitely less in the case of the 8310).

If you are budget-minded, there is no reason for you to try to hit 5 ghz.

I am running a 955 BE at 1.48 volts @ 4.410 clocks on a Thermaltake extreem 3 all in one and it never goes over 51 even with P95 (just a side note). Really i am posting because I got my awesome clocking 955 from a great OCN person in the market place section. I would look there first for a binned chip that someone has already proved will run at the specified clocks. I know they might charge a little extra but you know what you are getting.
