Overclocking the AMD FX-4130 Black Edition

Hello everyone! I am fairly new to overclocking CPU's so I need some help!

Here are my budget system specs:

ASRock N68-VGS3 FX
AMD FX 4130 3.8 GHz Quad Core (Zambezi) (Currently OC'ed to 4.2 GHz with the stock cooler)
4GB 1333 MHz PNY RAM
Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition (OC'ed to 1150, 1250)


I want to know and make sure my settings for this OC are somewhat alright and if I could get any more out of this CPU. It runs at around 35-43C while not under any stress and while gaming it sits at around 47-50C.




*With this build I can achieve mid-high settings in most games that are more GPU intensive, but with other games, like ArmA 2/3 and World of Warcraft (I know.), my system has difficulty running them.

I have the same question as well. I haven't bought anything yet but I was looking to use a FX 4130 with a Cooler Master Seidon 120v liquid cooler with upgraded 120mm fan. Hoping to overclock to at least 4.4GHz min, 4.6GHz ideal and 4.8GHz max. Other wise I'm gonna wait till the end of the year when the prices of the 6 and 8 cores go down.

Start with some intro to overclocking tutorials. There is a lot of videos on youtube that can also help you.

AMD's safe temp for cores are 62 temp but its bull as I've been running my proccessor (amd phenom IIx6 1090t BE) at 66-68C for the past year and it hasn't degraded one bit nor shut down.So far as your temp goes you should be fine and if you want to OC more just set your voltage at automatic and increase your multiplier by .5 at a time through bios and check your temp+voltage through CPUID or any other program.Make sure your voltage doesn't goes past 1.4v and you should be good to go.

I have overclocked my 4130 to run at 4.5 Ghz On stock cooler with a GA-970A-DS3P at 50 degrees celcuis load

Get a motherboard that has higher Phase 8+2 power phase(preferably ASUS or Gigabyte AM3+ motherboards.

You shouldn't overclock at all with a stock cooler and a poor motherboard that uses a 3+1 power phase.
