Can't even get 3.6 GHz on FX-6300 - Page 4

Having cool 'n' quiet disabled does nothing to eliminate thermal throttling.

I have a fan next to the VRM so I can't do any more.



No one is mad at you.

the first thing I tried after I installed the cooler was setting the multiplier to 22 which is 4,5 GHz and the voltage to 1.475. The motherboard is still ok I guess, so I may give it a go.

what motherboard do you recommend me buying though? like.. the cheapest one (since i wasn't expecting a motherboard replace after all) that can get me around 4.4-4.5 GHz..



To overclock a 6300 to 4.5 GHz and successfully be able to run stress tests you need a good board, good psu, good cpu cooler and good case airflow. Contrast these two boards. One is designed for overclocking one is not even sufficient at stock no matter what ASRock claims.

I can understand that, but I have no idea who would even hint at running that CPU at 4.5ghz or 1.475V without being totally oblivious, people like that have no understanding of how a VRM works or why you wouldn't want to send that kind of power through a low end 4 phase that doesn't even have a heatsink on it. I'm sure 1.475 is way more than that board is going to survive with very long.

as for getting to 4.4-4.5 GHZ that's hard, I would suggest bare minimum going with a 6+2 (a la Asus) or 8+1/2 phase VRM on a board WITH A HEATSINK ON THE VRM. (Edit: see the pic chrisjames posted? nice heat sink over the vrm)

Here is a nice list you can look through:
http://www.overclock.net/t/946407/amd-motherboards-vrm-info-database

You'll notice that the boards geared for higher power delivery are more expensive, the old "you get what you pay for" adage kicks in here. I think the Gigabyte 970A-UD3 is a good starting point, but you just missed christmas sales.

You can do light-moderate overclocking on cheaper boards with adequate cooling but I can't say it's safe with confidence. I've tested a 4100 on a GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 at 4.2 ghz and it worked pretty well, VRM needed extra cooling.. But I wouldn't jump in to recommend a cheap board for OC.

You're also going to want a GOOD power supply . I'm not sure what you're running right now and forgot to ask, for all we know your PSU could be a major culprit here.

Run it at least 1-2 hours min. Ideally you want to go for 12-24hrs.

I really wouldn't run prime for a full day on this thing would you?

thanks for the help. that's what i run right now: Super Flower Atlas AT-530P12HE 530W
@Sp33d Junki3 no point in doing that since I haven't OC'ed it at all.
post #34 of 59
Serious_Don, many people think that they need ONE thing to overclock their cpu. An aftermarket cooler. And when they can't overclock their cpu they don't like hearing that they need a good board, a good psu, a case with good airflow etc....

I have a deepcool tesseract which has decent airflow. As I said before some guys said the board is OK for OC'ing but not too much (100 mhz is too much it seems). I don't know about the PSU though, maybe you can tell me if it's good or not.

I'm actually not familiar with this model PSU at all, might have to call in one of the gurus should this come into question.

We all have to learn somehow. The problem which he seems to be experiencing is receiving conflicting advice from potato brains on forums that exist outside of our realm and I feel for him! That was me once too biggrin.gif

Hey nice case, I just ordered that new Deepcool Dukase, though that one may have poor air flow, I'll find out soon thumb.gif

That is the point, you would not. Plus I even run prime on stock also, just to be sure everything can be handled.
Plus most CPU has Turbo enabled.

ftwknx
The mobo you have is terrible.
There should be no more to discuss till you decide to replace it or live with the fact you run at stock speeds.
Which is not bad at all, just have turbo enabled and you should be fine.
The gains you get is very little most times.

I have turbo enabled but it never gets to 4,1 GHz as it should, am I right?
I also have something called X-Boost but I'm not sure if I should try that.
post #39 of 59
That may be caused by your mobo.
As for the case Deepcool Tesseract, airflow is terrible. Front is blocked by those drove cages and very little gets through from those tiny vents.
Your PSU Super Flower Atlas AT-530P12HE not sure, but looks to be very poor in quality and low power barely pulling 420w on 12v.
With 20A on each rail 12v rail x2.

The PSU you have may be a problem not getting enough good power to the mobo.

I've read a few reviews about the PSU and they all say it's a great one. One of them is running Intel i5 4440 + R9 280x on it. Another guy running I5 4460 on it.
