overclocking your CPU will generally come down to 2 factors (excluding the settings in BIOS):
1. the motherboard - your current motherboard is solid and should be more than capable of overclocking your CPU.
2. the quality of the silicon wafer of the CPU: higher the quality would = very nice overclocks, while lower would be the opposite.

although it could be your CPU just not wanting to go above 3.8GHz, you haven't stated what BIOS settings you've already tried/changed so i can't really recommend you a place to start.

post back with your specs and the things you've tried so we can get an idea on where to start.

thanks bro i didn't find any relevant images or answer towards my question i have Google it but didn't succeed.
i am bit confused in voltage settings what should be it
below i have mentioned my system configuration

np,

how much voltage your CPU @ "x" (x meaning any overclocked speed) will be variable so you have to test. try raising your voltage just 1 step at a time (while in BIOS, just raise the CPU Voltage setting one click or press the "+" sign on the numpad of your keyboard just once; this will allow you to raise the voltage by as little as possible).

that is the problem bro, i am confused which should i raise there are many options in my bios and if i do anything wrong then i have to reset my bios and while doing that i have to take out my graphic card and it will took long time i have messaged you my cpu z screenshot please check your PM

why do you have to take out the video card? you should be able to just reset your CMOS on the motherboard.

when your in the BIOS, click on M.I.T. and scroll down until you see CPU Voltage Control which should be set to "Normal." raise it up by 1, the setting should be "0.025v" after that, save your BIOS settings and exit. also, just for now, leave the CPU Clock Ratio setting @ Auto if you already have it at any setting besides that.

im quite sure the voltage settings are there, let me be more specific.

you go into MIT then you scroll down and underneath "DRAM Configuration" you should see ******SYSTEM VOLTAGE OPTIMIZED****** or something along the lines of this.

right underneath that, is "System Voltage Control," this setting should be set to manual so you can raise your voltage.

here's a youtube link of your motherboard's BIOS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uu1lZOg6y-Y

this is old bios now new bios is quite different from it whole interface is changed in new factory default bios even we can use mouse in that bios...!

i have checked there are many option under voltage control so i am bit confused and there is no new bios review over all internet

well, are you saying the video was showing a old BIOS? or that you are using a old BIOS?

under the voltage menu, you need to find a setting called CPU Voltage Control which seems to be the last setting under the voltage menu.

if you're using the new BIOS where you say you can use the mouse, it still should be called "CPU Voltage Control." even if the setting had a name change, it should still be something along the lines of "CPU Voltage Control" or "CPU Vcore"

basically its new bios that is called uefi bios
i didn't found anything relevant to it v core is there but its 2.500 rather then normal ...
only the person who has overclocked processor on this board can only tell

this is the bios


we're still looking for basically the same thing, it seems like you'll have to go into MIT, then Advanced Voltage Settings. there should be an option called CPU Vcore which is set to Normal by default.

you can do what i stated before and raise your CPU Vcore by 1 click (or hit enter when CPU Vcore is highlighted and it should show you a list of + or - voltage options; set it to the one right above Normal which should be +0.025v.

EDIT: your default CPU Vcore should be set to AUTO. also, i just noticed you said your Vcore is set to 2.50? if it's truly set to 2.50, i say try finding the setting called "Load Optimized (Default) Settings" and then save and exit.

well, im not sure what you meant when you said that your VCORE is at 2.50.

since i have no idea what that value does to your voltage, id like to reset everything to the default settings so we can start from scratch and then properly work our way up.

it would the first one "CPU Core," if you click on AUTO, it should show you the options available.

now, under the "Advanced Frequency Settings" take your CPU Clock Ratio to x18 (this should give you 3.8GHz; stock BCLK of 200x19 = 3800MHz or 3.8GHz); after setting the Clock Ratio to x18 you want to set the CPU Core setting to +0.025v since you were having stability issues with 3.8GHz.

just only change these 2 settings at this moment and save and exit the BIOS. now, if all looks well booting into Windows, you can try an put it under a stress test. if it passes for more than 10min of Prime 95 or a stress test of your choice without reaching temperatures of 62C or CPU voltages of 1.5v, you can try an bump up the clock ratio by another x1 (so CPU Clock Ratio if raised by x1 from the x19 that we set it to would be x20 in which 200(BCLK Clock)x20(CPU Clock Ratio) = 4000MHz or 4.0GHz.

do NOT change the CPU Core voltage at this time, only raise the multiplier by x1 if you were able to pass a 10min stress test without exceeding 1.5v CPU voltage and temperatures that stay under 62C. the reason you want to test without raising voltage is to check and make sure that we are using the lowest possible voltage that the CPU can use for "x" CPU speed.

repeat the 10min stress test, while making sure you don't exceed the CPU voltage of 1.5v and 62C temperature. if it passes the stress test of 10min without problems, then you would proceed to raise the CPU Clock Ratio by another x1.

so, in general, if your overclock passes a stress test for 10min, you only need to go back into the BIOS and raise your CPU Clock Ratio by x1. If the stress test fails, don't raise the CPU Clock Ratio and instead, raise the CPU Voltage by another single step (since we started off with the +0.025v setting, the next available option above +0.025v should be +0.050v i believe).

this is the general rinse and repeat process you'll be using to test your overclocks. for AMD CPUs, you can also use BCLK Clock Control above the CPU Clock Ratio setting but, for now, i say you just try the steps i gave you and make sure your temperatures and CPU voltages are well within the specified limits.

BCLK Clock Control can get somewhat complicated especially if you haven't overclocked with it yet as it can overclock the performance of other components in the system but, depending on whether the overclock failed or not, i can give you a quick run down of BCLK tomorrow.

i told you exactly what settings to use to get you started. however, if you can't even find those settings in the BIOS... i don't recommend you to overclock until you've done some research on the limits of your CPU.

here's a link: http://www.overclock.net/t/1341479/fx-6300-overclocking...

if you scroll down a bit on the link, you can see the settings they use for overclocking the same CPU and motherboard as you.

good luck

oh lol, those guys are tellin ya exactly what to do :)  whether it's asrock or asus, the settings should be named similarly.

as far as hard disks go, you can not score higher than 5.9 in windows experience index if you're using windows 7, i don't know about windows 8. solid state drives are the only thing that will score higher than 5.9.

as for brand recommendations, id go for samsung but, it'll probably just come down to your own choice. look for a hard drive that'll run @ 7200RPM and you should be fine.

i think either or should be just fine :)  but, i don't think they will increase your system experience index for the Hard Drive above 5.9.

hey bud, i have the same MOBO as you do, but i have an fx8350 8core CPU. the CPU voltage is called Vcore under the voltage menu. it should be the first one at the top once you are in that menu. and then u just raise the CPU clock ratio like mr1hm said to do. u might have to change your vcore load calibration to extreme in order for this to work. the UEFI bios is a bitch trust me
