How can I overlock AMD FX 8300 or use Turbo mode?

Hi there,

I bought an AsRock 970 pro motherboard and an AMD FX 8300 CPU. I have a big cooler fot that too...

I would like to use Turbo mode, but how can I enable it? I don't see it overlocks my processor, not even if playing games...

I tried to manually ovelock it, but seems not work and really unstable. I can't start my computer if I overlock it...

What is the correct solution for this CPU?

Full model name of your motherboard?

Turbo is activated automatically for low threaded loads.

You can use AMD overdrive for manual overclocking

Update BIOS​ and check CPU temperatures. OS version?

Can you show me what settings are you trying to apply in AMD overdrive?

It says your Bios is up to date. CPU temperature is about on 35-45 celsius.. if I use my CPU 100% on 3.3ghz it can move up to 46-47 celsius

I already uninsaled amd override and asrock overlock software too...

Try to reset BIOS and set CPU multiplier to 20. Leave other settings by default.

Probably your motherboard is faulty. Or you have VERY bad CPU sample, but it is less likely.

The TURBO mode creates a heavy load on the power system.

Remove the Turbo mode and set the processor frequency to 4.2GHz.

The voltage on the processor is raised to 1.30-1.35 - the standard value for the FX-8350.

If the host starts up and stably passes the test in OCCT, try to reduce the voltage on the processor. Otherwise, let the frequency of the processor to 4.0 GHz.

Also disable APM and enable HPC mod

And do no usr Owerdrive Utilits.

In the vast majority of cases, they work very poorly
