Start here https://www.overclock.net/forum/19033091-post2.html it's at the beginning of this thread, gives the quick and dirty to OC this CPU. You've got a great motherboard but your cooling is going to limit you to most likely the 4.4-4.5 range.

I want to OC mainly for fun because I just like optimizing things. However, I am also looking forward to some marginal gains with the Oculus Rift. I know my GPU is a limiting factor but why not get what I paid for from AMD. And if all that happens is that arbitrary numbers I don't fully understand have a percentage increase, well that's cool too.

Have you looked on the OP of this thread? It covers the basics to get you started.
As questions come up just post back.

Be sure to keep a VERY close eye on your temps. A Hyper 212 isn't going to take you very far.

Good and you?
Been really busy doing more reviews and not enough benching. Still an AMD fan and have been playing with lots of assorted cpus and boards, they've been very good to me. Planning for retirement in January and taking this on full time.

what sort of coolers are people using for high overclocks. currently usng a gammaxx 400 which is ok for 4.4 but nothing higher. don't mind air or AIO. limited to 169mm high with the case and the mobo is a gigabyte 990x-sli. don't like the gigabyte app for controlling fans so other software would be nice.

most hardcore folks are using water cooling
very few do air, and you can see why

i got 4.8ghz on my 8320e with a hyper 212 with 2x some ebay fans, but i had spent a ton of time figuring out the cpu-vdda and core voltage combo to get voltages as low as possible while still being stable.


it needs a mix of reference clock AND multiplier to get higher clocks at a lower overall voltage.




cpu VDDA (or CPU PLL on some boards) plays a big role n voltage stability for some motherboards, and is almost always required to be above 2.5v when shooting for anything that needs over 1.45 core volts. It just does an awesome job of adding stability. It WILL add to your temperatures. So go in 0.05v steps, IE, from 2.5 to 2.55, then from 2.55 to 2.6.


BABY STEPS!!!!

The Gammax 400 is a basic air cooler and 4.4 on it is fine. I used twin tower coolers with strong fans and enhanced case air flow which, depending on cpu, delivered stable 4.8-5ghz.

was using a gammaxx 400 and just swapped to an ID cooling frostflow 280mm.

Gammaxx was just about ok up to 4.6ghz for R15 benchmark. Can do 5ghz on the frostflow for a bench mark run of 612. will run 4.2-4.4 day to day.

Turn that northbridge speed up!


You are giving up quite a bit of potential performance.I was able to attain over 640 r15 with my old 6300.


try cpu-nb voltage at 1.275v and go for 2400mhz to start with. prime95 large fft torture test will find instability within 30 minutes usually.


my 2013 year 6300 was only capable of 2600mhz northbridge before needing to chug down on the voltage to be stable upwards of 2700mhz

cheers, will give it a go later. overclocking this purely for R15 scores and frequency scores. Its a secondary computer I built for my boys to use.
