AMD FX-6100 Overclocking Help?

Hi,

So I have an AMD FX-6100 CPU currently running at 4.2Ghz. I have an idle temperature of 38 celcius, which has not changed even when I was running 1Ghz slower. I have a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ in a dual fan configuration. About how fast can I get my CPU with reasonable temps? Both my fans are currently at about 800RPM.

Thanks in advance,
Michael

  1. change your clock to a higher rate ie. 4.5 ghz and then stress run it to see if it is still stable and then check the temperature of the cpu, if you still think you can go higher then experiment with the clock rate and record temperatures each time.

    Depending on room temp, your 4100 should be idling under 30. What thermal paste are you using? Why are the fans running so slow?
  3. I am at 4.2GHz and I rad Prime 95 for an hour, 54 degrees.

    See Ryan's Over-Clocking Sticky

    The basic principles of the CPU Multiplier work here, too, with the AMD FX-series AM3+ processors.

    With the exception, of course, being Turbo. If you have not disabled Turbo, you may in fact be running 3 cores at 24X200MHz with 3 cores fully down-clocked in certain loads.

    I'm guessing you simply cranked the multiplier and left most setting on Auto. You should check your temps with multiple utilities to really keep an eye on things. If your motherboard OEM has a utility they're most likely the best. HWMonitor is good, too.

    The -FX Bulldozers were heaters to some extent, but some later silicon had quite a nice volt-range prior to Piledriver. Having the 95w is a good thing.
  5. What is your RAMs speed ?

    I'm assuming you are using an automatic over-clocking tool. You may also set the system clock to a 'sweet spot' and drop the memory divider in the BIOS. It would help if we knew your motherboard brand, too.
