I have currently overclocked an AMD FX6100 from 3.3ghz to 3.5ghz. I am trying to get it to about 3.9 or 4.0, i have not added a new CPU fan but I am going to get it tomorrow: Im getting this one: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Rocketfish%26%23153%3B+-+Un...




Im going to post the image link of the HWmoniter and CUPID. Can you guys tell me if these number look good and if i can still clock the CPU higher. Remember though that these number are still with my stock fan. Replacing fan tomorrow.

They are fine though im not sure you're going to get great results with a rocket fish cooler.... if you dont get decent results try replacing the fan it comes with, using something with a higher CFM rating for better results.

Would this be a better choice?

That is a way better cooler, the only way to know if your motherboard can overclock higher is to test out and see how high you can get it im sure it will overclock a bit higher atleast. 990fx is the way to go for AMD overclocking though

Need some help. I have currently only changed the multiplier, and vcore- the voltage, and its been working fine and stable with prime 95. Do i have to change the NB or any of the other stuff if i higher the OC even more?

I would run it atleast 2-3 hours, some people do 24 hours but i think thats overkill, your never going to be at 100% usage for hours on end anyways
