  1. Hi there, yes 4.2 ghz is a realistic goal with the Kuhler 620. I own the Kuhler 620 and was able to push my Phenom II X4 955 to 4ghz. Now take a look at this video on how to overclock the FX-6100 on an Asus board:

    Edit: Also disable Cool N Quiet, C1E, C6 and Turbo mode. You should also set the power options to high performance as well.
  2. Thank you so much for your help :D
  3. No problemo, let me know if there is anything else.
  4. ok just been told by supplier not getting my cpu cooling system till mid jan, what could i look to get off a stock cooling system OC?
  5. Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO will do just as good as the Kuhler 620, see if you can credit that Kuhler 620 or something.

    I see, well let me know once the waiting game is over. It is around Christmas time so companies are rushing to do things and so they don't have all the time to do stuff. If this thread gets closed just send me a PM to continue this.
  8. Have inboxed you buddy, thank you for your help. :-)

  10. ok turns out this ram will not work on a am3+ chipset, can you reccomend some tall please?
  11. Why was that ram 204pins? You want 240 pin DDR3 Ram. Here is my recommendation:

  12. No twas 240pin, i will test it if it doesn't work I'll get some vengence ram
  13. had a word with a computer programming buddy o mine, and he said it should work fine in my pc its just that the cycle rate is slow, but wont be noticeable, also how do i close this thread as answered? will contact you via direct mail or post a new thread as needed :D
  14. This is a discussion thread my friend, so there is no best answer. If you are done with this thread all we do is leave it as is :lol:
