    FX 6300 Overclock tips

    necator

      Hello guys,

       

      firstly I never overclocked an CPU. But I kinda feel outdated with my FX 6300, but cannot afford a new one at the moment. So I read some stuff about overclocking it. Has someone experience with this how to do it?

      This is my system:

      So best case expectations would be like overclocking to 4Ghz, is this possible?

          i ran fx 8350 same principal. .. with asrock pro 3 and still do. your hypertransport and north bridge runs best at 2600 mhz big gains i got on that. ... your cpu voltage is low. 6 cores i had 8 but.. you need the bios 1.90 its better than the 2.10 bios trust me. and make sure you put 1.7 in then move up 1 step at a time on those boards. those timing look sme as my trident z 1866mhx ram exept i got that 37 down to 34 with more volts.

           

          this is what i have on my 8350 just keep in mind they are high but big aircooler and 2 more cores.. base over clock well i have 260 now but , 237 is perfect up from 200 only go 5-10 mhz at a time.. with a reboot go slow.. ok so lets go with 237 fsb cpu clock , 1.4625v cpu that would run me past 5.0 ghz but 4.7 dont have much more gains. HT 2600mhz, NB 1.38 w/ + .050 offset , HT 1.385 v  , cpu vdda 2.56v pci vdda 1.92v , SB auto ,  cpu/NB 1.475 v

           

          just take your time and move things up slow.. those boards, when you move the FSB up from 200 you need to click almost all setting then close and open to see the next value to move up. not sure what cooling you have but i ran 212 evo push pull and sealed on side no air leaks ... well now you know the max safe voltages for 8 cores .. just go up slow and if it gets goofy on ya you went to far unless you didnt move other things up along with it.. baby steps man. u be fine. crashes happen start over .. youll get it. the key is the base over clock for better bus speeds and ram speed.

          i actually have 2 brand new never used 1866 ddr3 trident z out of a 32gb pack used maybe 1 day.. it was to much for those boards... and ram can over volt 10% safe on quality sticks and more on g.skill if had to ..

              Hey,

               

              first thanks for your answer, I am not that good at Tweaking that stuff, is it safe to do the stuff? I mean u got a 8350, 2 more cores better cooling etc.

              Someone has experience with 6300?

                  i  have also ran these settings on a 4150, it was just a hair less on cpu and cpu/nb. all the same arch for our discussion. you ask is it safe well, thats a hard question. getting in my car is unsafe but. i simply gave you the voltages clocks that took me a good while to tweak. so you are farther ahead to start with. amd never recommends ocing. and i cant either. all i can say is after all these years it  still runs and no fire also my 4150 is mint aswell packed away .. ..
