AMD FX 6300 OC via Bus or Multiplier

I was pretty proud of my OC using a 21.5 multiplier on my AMD FX 6300. Got in running very cool and stable with just a slight bump in voltage.

But then I read a post saying that you should OC by putting the multiplier to default 2.0 and increase the bus as this allows you to take advantage of AMD processors ability to use fewer cores if all six aren't needed.....AKA P-State. I spend as much time web surfing and programing websites as I do playing games on my computer. Should I switch to a bus based OC?

What settings in Bios do I need to have on to take advantage of P-state?

both i had close clocks on my old 6300 to my 8320

220-230 fsb but your memory wont match the correct speeds it will be either higher or lower. 230 for me got me to 1853 i believe vs 1866 and then up the multiplier. i had my 6300 clocked at 4.2 -4.4 at around 1.29.1.31 vcore.

Thanks. I have 1600 memory. Don't I need to do the same tweaks to the NB and HT to bring them back down closer to default if I adjust the bus?

Do I then leave Turbo on to take advantage of the P-State? Did you leave everything else, Cool n Quite and other power management features on? I'd like to leave as many on as possible.

yes you will need to adjust both of those try to find ones as close as you can or a hair higher. if you have a good mobo id up the fsb if not just use the multiplier since upping the fsb ups the voltage and your heatsinks get hotter on your board

turbo for me I personally never liked, caused problems with gaming for me. i disable it since it also causes the vcore voltage to go crazy high.

as far as cool and quiet and all those feautures in that section disable them, they only cause problems when overclocking.



what heatsink are you using now? the stock one doesnt handle overclocks at all and its actually on my athonx2 which 0c to 3ghz is running about 51c under load

Thanks again,
I posted another thread with all my specs a few days ago that has fallen and been neglected.

If you can also answer my question on temps noted in the image I posted that would be great!




57c was your core temps max is 62c for them but they can go higher.

The package temp diesnt really matter mine vary greatly in temps
