My FX6300 Results (after alot of research) 4.6Mhz GA-78LMT-S2P (Socket M2) Rev. 5

Alot of effort and giving up and starting again and so on but here are the great results biggrin.gif

+ gpu max strain to maximize holistic heat output.
New fan setup had no problems keepings temps low
Extra intake & exhaust fans, and mosfet heatsinks.
General 20% drop in temps gave the extra stability that was needed.
Im guessing the board was getting hotter than depicted in HWmonitor.
Throttling after 15-30mins before the extra cooling.
Also now i can run c1e and c6 without problems before i had to have them off.


I found FSB 230 to give me the best performance and the best stability and mostly failures past 250. HT and NB above 2400 always boot failed and at 4.6Mhz at 230fsb 2300 HT & NB gives better stability and performance. Higher Mhz did not always amount to higher performance. K8 enabled and balanced windows energy setting lets me run at nice low frequencies and causes no problems. Other than a 1-3% performance drop in pass mark.

Initallly Prime95 blend failed somewhere around 10-30 mins at 4.6 (Without cooling only 4.4 got past 2hrs of blend)
now with extra cooling stable 2hrs +( Im quite suprised with this drastic change)!!!!!

thanks to all the knowledgeable people that shared the love.

Great effort, congrats !

See i also like to do some notes about my O.C settings and the profile in the MotherBoard BIOS is really helpfull in this case.

In my old R.I.G, one abit Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI + E8400, did not had BIOS profile, such pain !

biggrin.gif

In your case 4.6 Ghz with your FX-6300 is a very good O.C ! If is 100% stable you should be proud.

My current O.C is on the thermal limit of my custom cooling setup, but no throttling here. My (FSB + H.T) is also overclocked and i find good gains with memory latency once the N.B is overclocked. I have my N.B @ 233 and H.T close to 3k.

The FX CPU´s with such high clock are very good performers. Even Single Thread performance is on TOP of the game.

Again congrats nice O.C !

And Welcome to Overclock.net !

Your board has no VRM cooling, It is not a 8+2 phase either?
You'll need a better board, once you go overvolting the vrms will cook
1.5V is up there for a 4+1 4+2 board

You seem to also have thottling? 3.3 3.4GHZ?
You could possibly disable throttling if you enable HPC, given that your cpu or mother board dosen't go cooking hot

It´s throttling due VRM overheating.
99% minimum CPU usage and 3347MHz.

Thanks. biggrin.gif Nice to get some verification and now i know its not just a delusion of success wink.gif. Took some time to figure out the maximum for my setup and perfomance wise it wasnt much of a change given the extra effort needed as the very boarder. That didn't matter much though since at one point i already knew i wasn't going to settle for anything less than the edge biggrin.gif
Now im wondering about just upgrading my graphics and sticking with the 6300 for the long haul. A bit worried ill get bottle necked by some newer games though.
Short term ill probably go for the card first anyway.

Its not throttling its the K8 energy saving mode which with windows set to balanced reduces frequency when not in use.
No more throttling after getting extra airflow and heat sinks.

As the picture shows i have an extra fan and heat sinks on my vrms.
I dont have throttling Its K8 cool and quite, reducing frequency when not under load, which i do want ON to save some power consumption.
All issues were resolved with better cooling.

heres a pic of the acutal ranges

I also had this board with a 8120 XD. If you are getting downclocked when running at load, it means application management or something like that is enabled in bios. But I know this board doesnt have this option. So what I did was to download amd overdrive then enable then disable turbo core and boom shakalaka. You wont downclock anymore. thumb.gif It is quite annoying since you have to do it every time your pc boots up.

Cool N Quiet is supposed to reduced frequency when NOT under load. When under load with a software than can stress all cores (like IBT AVX, Prime95), all your cores should be pinned on the highest clock.

I 'd pay attention to Chuy409 if i were you.

Congratulations, good OC on an entry board.

Edit: as you can see not all cores are running at max speed. They are clocking down due to overheating of either the VRM's or other components.
