FX6300 OC in two windows environment - Page 2

I understand but is this not supposed to take 95W only? The 965 takes 125W. I am confused about that.

What about the FX4300? Does it take also a lot of power?

Read up on the forums. The FX cpu's are much more power hungry than Phenom II cpu's even with the same TDP. They also generate more heat. Once you overclock the 6300 its no longer a 95 watt cpu. Running at 3.5 GHz vs 4.8 GHz is like night and day.

Well I think that I should consider my self lucky to have it @ 3.8 - 4.0 range.
Thanks.

I would try and sell that board and the 965BE on eBay and then try to buy a GA-990FXA-UD3 R4 on eBay for like $70 and clock that 6300 up to at least 4.5 GHz. You have a real nice video card. The 6300 at 3.8 to 4.0 speeds will constrain it.

Actually I have 3 of these boards...lol. Mine since 2010 and 2 more that I bought to build some cheap computers to my kids with parts that I have. That way I can use my windows license in the 3 of them. One is using my 965 and for the other one I may get a 1090T. May be I keep that instead of my new 6300..lol. I feel like I can survive with this hardware until Zen becomes available. That way I can buy an AM4 mobo. So far I can play all my games in stereoscopic which is what I really like to do and play BF3 and BF4 in eyefinity. The reasons why I really got this CPU is because when I was playing on servers with 64 players my 965 will struggle with 3 monitors. So I did not want to limit my self to 32 and 48 players servers. Other than that this mobo and CPUs have provided what I need and I am sure things will get better with DX12 but I also want to try Zen smile.gif

Hi not sure if this will help but apostolosgt[/B got his working pretty good in http://forums.anandtech.com/showthread.php?t=2329795

That the motherboard works, doesn't mean it properly supports the CPU. The BIOS never mentions any Vishera support. It works, probably because of the similarities between Bulldozer and Vishera, but doesn't mean that the motherboard properly treats the CPU the way it should (30fanman's link supports this). The motherboard is also white socket:

P.S.: You overclocked Phenom x4 to "easily to 4.7 and sometimes to 5Ghz?" On what? Liquid nitrogen? If it wasn't liquid nitrogen, how exactly did you test stability? Because all the common mortals i 've seen out there struggle to arrive to 4.2, some can't even hit 4.

I have an fx6300 and was struggling to keep 4.5ghz on an asrock 970 extreme3 r2.0. Recently upgraded to a ga990fxa-ud3 r5 and I'm happy to be running a cool 4.4 at a much lower voltage. Like others have said both the voltage and the chioset will determine stability at any clock speed and if it's having trouble in one environment and not the other ID suggest resetting your OC and going through the process again, testing for stability each time so that you can be sure it's stable in all environments.

And the fx6300 is really showing its age. It doesn't hold up against any modern i5 even OCd. If you really want to be able to handle 64 player servers on 3 monitors (can't see what GPU you have since I'm on mobile but I'll assume it's killer) then you might consider biting the bullet and picking a used 3rd 4th or 5th gen i5 or i7 if you cab get a good deal. EBay in the US has some good deals right now.

Also on a side note I'm pretty sure that's not how you use a Windows license ;p

Thanks. I already got it to 4.7 but it is not stable. It was good enough to run Fire Strike but even at that speed my 965 still beats this when it comes to the final score. However I have learned that this is score means not much in real world. Even when my 965 has a slightly higher score than my FX6300 when I play BF4 in eyefinity I can clearly see the difference in performance in favor of the FX6300. I used to struggle to play in 64 players servers with my 965. I needed to lower the resolution to get smoother frame rates and that was at 4.5 Ghz and some times that was not good enough but with my FX6300 at 4.2 I get smoother frame rates without downgrading resolution. The one problem that I have is that it seems to be very unstable when adjusting the multiplier so what I have done so far I went back to my BIOS and put everything in auto, multiplier at default 17.5 and increase the frequency to get it between 4.2 and 4.3. So whenever I feel I need more performance I could probably go back and try the multiplier. But what I saw is that some games do not behave good when I move the multiplier, they respond like if you were playing a video an higher speeds.
