Overclocking AMD Fx6300

Ok so I bought my new motherboard which is a Asrock 970 pro R2.0 and I wanna overclock my CPU but i don't know how. for cooling, I have a hyper212x with enough airflow. The target speed is 4.5ghz if possible if not ill just stay with 4 but i need some help here Thanks :) And i have Asrock extreme tuning utility installed.

Before the others jump in - you really just need to google this.  The Piledriver chip is a well known OC'er, and there are tons of guides as soon as you search google.

The AsRock Pro3 R2.0 uses a weaker 4+1 VRM design, and WITHOUT any passive heatsink cooling.

For that reason, PLEASE, keep an eye on your CPU, motherboard, and VRM temperatures.

 

Overclock by directly adjusting the settings in the BIOS; would strongly recommend AGAINST using software.

yes but i have enough airflow and i do keep a eye out for temps so dont worry. And i wont use software.

You might need to have directly airlfow over the VRMs if it does eventually get too hot.

I would recommend that you keep the Core Voltage under 1.400V   because of the motherboard you are using.

You should be able to still reach ~4.5 GHz in that voltage range.

 

Other LTT users were able to get ~4.7 GHz with 1.40V or slightly under.

That said, I only have experience with a FX-8350 on a high-end ASUS Crosshair IV Formula motherboard, so my experience might be different from you.

 

Anyways, keep us updated; let us know if you have questions.

OK I have it at 4.2ghz because it gets pretty toasty the cpu at 50-55°c so I brought it down but with the same voltage as the video. I don't know how low I have to set the voltage. And the motherboard under full load only reached 35°c with the cpu at 4.2ghz. And I don't Wanna go that high though. I just use it for gaming nothing else. And also how can I overclock the ram? They are both sticks of hyper X fury ram at 1600mhz. One is 4gb and the other is 8gb.

Toasty is high 80's to low 90's. You would be better served upgrading to a Ryzen CPU. The FX6300 is a gutless AMD chip that never saw good days.

What are you using to test if the overclock is stable?

What are you using to check temperatures? HWMonitor? AIDA64? HWinfo?

 

I can't view the video at work, so will need to check when I get home or something.

 

If you use CPU-Z, you can see what voltage your FX-6300 uses at stock / auto.

Use that as the starting point.

Increase the voltage a little bit at a time until your overclock speed is stable.

 

For example, let's say your FX-6300 runs stock 3.5 GHz with 1.25V.

Set it to 1.25V and you try 3.6 GHz (200 x 18), 3.7 GHz, and 3.8 GHz.

3.8 GHz is not stable, so you increase it to say ... 1.27V.

1.27V is now stable at 3.8 GHz, so you keep going .... 4.0 GHz is not stable with 1.27V now.

Try 1.28V, 1.29V ... 1.30V is stable for 4.0 GHz.

...

...

 

There is usually a temperature reading for motherboard, SB chipset, VRM, CPU, etc.

Make sure you are looking at the correct one for the VRMs.

You can upload screenshot if you want.

 

You can overclock the RAM, but it will only help with a little bit with performance.

Get your CPU overclock stable first before you try overclocking your RAM.

What is your 4GB and 8GB RAM specifications (e.g. advertised frequency, timings, and voltage)?

AMD CPUs, particularly the ones on socket AM3 and AM3+ used an algorithm for the temperature measurement.

It wasn't directly reading from a temperature sensor, so the high limit was much lower.

The system would thermal throttle, shut down, or become unstable once you get into the 80*C range.

 

From working with my Phenon II X4 955, X6 1090T and FX-8350, you really want to keep it in the ~75*C or under during normal usage.

Low 80's is okay for short term (e.g. CPU torture or burn tests).

Sorry for the late reply, my motherboard sits at 35c under full load, and the cpu is stable i doesnt crash at all no glitches or anything, its at 4.2ghz with 1.3875v on the cpu, and the ram sticks are 1 8gb hyperx fury 1600mhz and a 4gb one also from hyperx here is the memorys website: https://www.kingston.com/us/hyperx/memory/fury?Speed=1600MHz&amp;JDEProdLine=FURY Memory Black the timings and voltages dont change for both sticks. And im gonna leave the cpu as it is im not gonna mess arround with the voltages and what not. So it will be at 4.2ghz at 1.3875v. Thanks for the reply. I use hwinfo64 and here is a picture of the hwinfo sensors
