My FX 6300 Overclock

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've been experimenting over the last few months with this chip
my motherboard is really holding me back because it won't boot with any more volts.


I've also have had it at 4.6 at the same volts but i only tested it for 10min with prime
thoughts?

Good job. Keep tinkering with it and see how efficiently you can get it to run.

Messed around in the bios some more and found hardware thermal protection was on
which was causing the mad drops to 1.1volts.
Got prime to run for 20min with no major voltage drops so tomorrow will try 4.7Ghz again.
