looking to upgrade my fx6100 I currently have it on an Angelica mobo. im afraid that when I overclock my cpu to 3.9mhz (stock 3.4) that my cpu is getting to hot, looking for an intercooler as well as a new cpu. what can I upgrade too, and how far should I push it on my mobo. I have an upgraded power supply(corsair cx 600) as well as a gpu (radeon hd 7850). my cpu is bottlenecking my gpu, unless I overclock it. trying to play rome total war 2 around 60 to 80 fps. when it eventually comes out. any suggestions?
They don't have a 6100 but a 6300 vs 8150, not a big increase to dump a $150 at.
As for cooling, it's hard to say if a aftermarket cooler would fit the HP board, give the caps around it enough clearence, etc, but the Hyper Evo 212 cooler is about the best cheapest cooler out there.
Also note, that motherboard only has a 970 chip on it and not the best power or VRM's, so overclocking on that board isn't the best nor are you going to get good results.
yes it is very simple swapping cpus
other way is to check ur cpu on a diff mobo
well that's not an option, because this is the only mobo that I have. you think the cpu that you suggested will run on my mobo? also is it worth it? I really just want to build an optimal pc for rome total war 2 without breaking my bank account
