I'm curious what the max safe temp is of my fx-6300 and if it has 6 physical cores or are most of them virtual?

More about : 6300 max temp cores

There are 6 physical cores, nothing hyperthread like an I7 or I3. I would not recommend any temps over 65C, after 65C you run the risk of being throttled or hurting you CPU.

3 physical cores, 6 logical cores,

if you are going higher than 65C you should invest in an aftermarket cooler, 65c should be the max

War is correct, I posted the wrong amount of cores physical vs logical. The temp is correct.
