Solved

Just bought a second GTX 760 w/ a FX 6300, am I bottlenecked?

Specs

2x evga 760 2gb
Amd fx 6300
Gigabyte GA 990
Corsair blue vengeance 8gb ram
Cooler master hyper 212 evo

I'm sort of new to building computers so I was wondering if I am being bottlenecked due to my processor and if I am is there anything I can do to prevent it by tweaks/overclocking. I'm currently over clocking the 6300 to 4.4ghz. Any help would be much appreciated :)

  1. You could probably overclock the CPU a bit higher to eliminate any potential bottleneck.

    What leads you to suspect that you are being bottlenecked?

    There really isn't any particular reason I feel bottlenecked i'm just trying to reassure myself that I'm taking full advantage of my hardware :p What do you advise to overclock it to?

    You're on a 990FX board so as far as you can get it with safe temps :D Not past 62C on the core or 70C on the socket.

    Awesome! Thanks for the advise!
  5. That's for when you're actually doing stuff BTW :P Not just when idel. Keep an eye on the temps and don't let it get past that.

    And no problem, anytime.
