Hey Hubris, yes 68C is really high, should be below 60. And 81C on the video card is really high too. I suggest you take the heatsink of both the CPU and GPU and clean all the thermal paste off. Reapply new thermal paste and reseat the heatsinks. Also might want to clean the dust out if you have any

Thats a good investment there, can use that for our next few builds. You should be able to get some decent clocks with that cooler, I would probably say atleast 3.4Ghz, depending on your RAM.

Yeah that was a thing I could use an answer to,

Why does the RAM have anything to do with clocking a CPU?

Edit: I also cleaned the whole computer from dust, it was quite much..
The GPU diode now indicates 60c so thats 21c lower but is it still to hot?
I dident get a big differance on the CPU but alittle maybe 5c lower. And it diden't rise as quickly as before

Thanks again Dale-C!

No problems mate. Thats good, lower temps but they are still pretty hot.

Ok, with the RAM and overclocking. When you OC your CPU the RAM also OCs at the same time. So you need decent RAM for OCing. Default clock for a 6000+ is 200x15. that means if you set RAM at 800Mhz in BIOS it will be running at 750Mhz.

Here are the formulas for working out RAM speed with overclocking AM2:

BIOS setting for RAM:

400= Multi * 1 / Clock Speed * 2
533= Multi * 1.5 / 2 / Clock Speed * 2
667= Multi * 1.2 / 2 /Clock Speed * 2
800= Multi * 1 / 2 /Clock Speed *2

So for a 6000+

BIOS setting for RAM:

400= 15 * 1 = 15 3000/15 = 200*2= 400Mhz
533= 15 * 1.5 / 2 = 11.25(12) 3000/12 = 250*2= 500Mhz
667= 15 * 1.2 / 2 = 9 3000/9 = 333*2= 667Mhz
800= 15 * 1 / 2 = 7.5(8) 3000/8 = 375*2= 750Mhz

I hope that makes sense :S

Wow that was quite complicated x) I will do my best to understand it when im going to try clock it

Currently i have ram set on auto should i set it to 800 or won't it make a differance?

Edit: does that mean if i OC the cpu i will get lower MHz on the ram?

sorry if Iam stupid xD

Yea it wont make a difference because the RAM stock is 800. No your RAM clock won't be any lower when you OC your CPU unless you change the RAM BIOS setting.

It's good to know that there are still other x2 6000+ users. ^_^

Keep the thread alive and kicking guys.

Check this out.

With the help of this guide I was able to get mine up to 3.3GHZ with no problem (1 day Orthos stable, 54C Max). Just went back to stock when I reformatted and I haven't had the time or the need to OC it again.

LOL. Hope that time never comes mate. If you're planning to OC your chip you might want to take a look at the link I posted above, it's really helpful for first time OC'ers like yourself. And you might want to invest on an aftermarket cooler to keep the temps down, you can get a decent one for $20-30 depending on where you are buying.
