Overclocking AMD FX-6100

Hi there,

I was wondering what sort of overclocks people were managing to get on their AMD FX-6100 CPU. At the moment I am not able to go above 3.8GHz at 1.3V or the CPU just becomes unstable.

I have tried changing the voltages (all the way up to 1.425V) but it still remains unstable. Turbo Core is disabled too and if I recall correctly C6 is disabled as well. The MB I am using is the trusty ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0.

Have I lost the silicon lottery by getting a bad overclocker or is there something lurking deep in the BIOS that I have forgotten to do?

Thanks.

Try pushing the multiplier even higher to something like...4.2 or so with your voltage around 1.4 and see how that works out. Some of those chips have a weird "dead zone" where they don't stay stable until you push past it. You should be able to get close to 4.5 or better out of it on that board. Make sure your Load Line Calibration (LLC) is maxed out or close to it as well.

EDIT: Also, you might try leaving the voltage on AUTO setting with the VRM LLC maxed out and see what that does for you as well. You may be off a tad, and the board can sometimes sort it out...though I recommend doing that as a last resort.

Cheers man! :)  This seems to have ironed out the problems I was having before!
