Overclock amd fx 6300 + Hyper 212 evo

I want to overclock my fx 6300 cpu. I've seen some videos on how to do it and every single one of them can overclock to +4.0Ghz with the hyper 212 evo. I've done a couple of test at 3.8 ghz and 4.0Ghz but my cpu temps exceed 65C. I would also like a guide to overclock since I don't know what method to use.

Here's a list of my specs:

Cpu: Amd fx 6300
Mobo: Asus m5A97 R2.0
PSU: Thermaltake SMART Series SP-650PCBUS 650W ATX 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified
Ram Crucial Ballistix Sport 8Gb (1333 mhz)
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 evo
GPU: EVGA gtx 970 FTW.

  1. Here is a good guide on overclocking on the AMD FX platform, the video is a bit old, but so is the platform so you should be fine

    You should be at 3.9-4.0 without changing the voltage. Make sure you disable Turbo, AMP, SVM, C1E, C6 State, and Cool n'Quiet. Set LLC to high or ultra.

    What voltage are you at?
