m5a97 LE R2.0 and Fx6300 overclock. I'm pretty confused
First off all I want to thank this site for all of the info while building my first PC. This is my first post but I have spent hours upon hours lurking.
I recently built a entry level gaming pc with the following specs:
FX6300 black edition Asus M5a97 LE R2.0 AM3+ Hyper 212 Plus cooler Fractal R4 case (added a side and floor intake) Msi GTX 760 Hawk GPU Kingston black 4gb 1600 mhz (x2) XFX Pro core 550w 80+ bronze psu
I am dipping down to around 24 fps in AC4 on all max settings (god rays turned off) and I'd like to give overclocking a try. I realize that AC4 is poorly optimized, but I would think my rig could handle a constant 30 FPS. I am using auto/turbo mode in BIOS.
I was recommended this mobo from another site and now I'm sad to find that it is a poor choice for overclocking. However, I'm a bit disappointed in its performance and consequently wishing I went with intel. Should I not attempt to OC?
