So, I've got a new PC, basically:

gpu GTX760
cpu FX-6300
mobo M5A97
ram 2x4 ram
featuring an water cooler! xD

The question is... it's something I'm almost certain, but I want to ask it one last time... Should I overclock the fx-6300 to 4.2 Ghz? I heard the fx-6300 is a beast when overclocked. I'm almost certain, that's why I got the water cooler.

So, what do you think guys?

TY very much
much good
such christmas
=P

Use AMD's overclocking software .
It the AMD catalyst control center , cpu overdrive section .

It will gradually raise the speed of the processor , and check the temps are OK . Takes a few minutes . Very easy

Mine will hit 4.7GHZ with an Air Cooler and no extra voltage . I keep it at 4.3 Ghz max because that lets me run the case fans and cpu cooler at lower speeds and keeps the pc quieter

Hey, someone said "if manual overclocking confuses you, then dont touch overdrive", and I know nothing about manual overclocking, should I still try to use overdrive?

The person who told you that is just plain wrong .

Using the catalyst control center to OC may not give you the finest detail [ best speed, lowest voltage , RAM timings] but it will safely and easily let your processor run at a higher speed without you needing a great deal of knowledge .

ok, how much should I take it to? 4.2 Ghz? 4.4?

The software works out what the safe level is and then you can set it at any speed up to that safe maximum .

It will depend on your cooling

One guy, who is Overclocking Authority just told me to do it on Bios and don't use softwares because on bios is way more stable. but ty anyway
