i have my amd fx-6100 overclocked too 3.8 right now, im using amd overdrive and it says the temps are staying between 20-22C on stock voltage. running stability test right now, its been running for 30 minutes at 100% and its still between 20-22C, it idles at 17C. is it actually over clocked or has it not taken the overclock?
Hey dude... wrong section! That is a bit strange though. At 20c my cpu (fx-6300) sits at like 55c socket and 40c cores (with thermaltake NIC 4 cooler). What cooler are you using. If you are wondering if your overclock is working, run something like passmark or a linpack output test and compare results.
yea, I forgot to change my tags. but its just the stock cooler it came with. I did some more and its not the temps its reading. aod updated and tells thermal margins. it says 20C so im guessing it is over clocked and its 20C below the maximum operating temp
Lol that pretty beast for the stock cooler. Im sitting about there with my thermaltake! If youhave any doubt's though, download passmark 08 and run a couple of benchies, it will let you know how performance scales with clock's and if it is worth it! I find IBT (intel burn test) to be a quick judge too, I get a 58 g/flop result at 3.8 and a 66ish at 4.4. Its the simplest way by far, and is great for stability testing.
