FX 6300 4.7GHz



Anybody still want to recommend i3 over fx processors?

4.7 stable after 1 hour of prime95 and another 3 hours gaming.

Cinebench score was 5.37

Cooler is a hyper 212 evo.

Motherboard is a 970 extreme 3.

  1. nice! Did you leave turbo o or off after you were done overclocking and also what are your temps at load for cpu and core cpu. Again well done man!

    Turbo is disabled. It idles at 35 and load it reached almost 70. I have dropped back to my 4.5GHz since then, but its fun to know that just by increasing voltage a bit and launching the multiplier, it runs at 4.7.

    Thanks!
  3. do you think I could overclock my 8120 with stock heatsink?
  4. No I can't reccomend any OCing with a stock heatsink. Spend 25 bucks and get a nice cooler.
  5. Good summary of this here:
    http://www.techradar.com/reviews/pc-mac/pc-components/processors/amd-fx-6300-1117533/review

    It's obviously one of the best CPU's for value. It would also be interesting to know what the difference in cost of ELECTRICITY would be over a 3-year period and if the money would have been better spent on an i5-3570.

  6. 5.37 cinebench at 4.7ghz? LOOOOL

    my fx 6300 4.2ghz make 5.40 cinebench
    at 4.8 it makes 6

    Core voltage 0.864 sounds low for 4.7 my 1090 has core voltage way higher for much lower oc

    my 6100 got a higher score at 4.7...
  9. but then of course my new 3820 gets a 7.8 or something on 3.6 stock... 8.8 on 4.6ghz

    lol... voltage 0.864 because the user have the "green stuff" ON

    then he ain't hittin 4.f-n 7

    No.
    The user have turned OFF that thing that drops the cpu speed = all the time 4.7ghz
    The user have turned ON that thing that drops the voltage at idlle.

    Maybe is using offset voltage too

    Edit: someting is wrong with that cpu... the scores are very low for that clock.

    my fx 6300 4.2ghz make better scores
  13. Cpu is probably throttling upon load due to ridiculous temps, under 61C! Just cause Intel chips can run upwards of 70C doesn't mean AMD ones can.
  14. http://i1139.photobucket.com/albums/n551/footlong96/50ghz.png 5.0ghz score
    http://i1139.photobucket.com/albums/n551/footlong96/47ghz.png 4.7ghz score. same clock speed as your fx.

    Not a fan boy. Just proving a point. They have awesome graphics cards, its just that there cpus are 2-3 generations behind intel.

    OP's CPU is certainly throttling. At 4.2Ghz on on 955 I got a cinebench score of 4.93.

    I'm not trying to start a intel vs amd war here I just wanted to point out that there is something wrong with the OP's cinebench score.

    The 6300 should render slightly faster than a phenom II x6 at the same clock speed.
  16. The reason why the i3 is recommended over the FX quad cores is because the FX processors in those tests are not OC'd I have mine running at 4.8 with a 23 multiplier and a FSB at 210 and it performs about 2/3 as good as my dual core i7(based off of visual studio compiling) so I'm sure it would destroy an i3
  17. The reason i3's are recommended for GAMING, not rendering, is that most games dont use more than two threads. Pretty sure an FX 6300 would destroy an i3 in rendering. But you get what you pay for. To be honest, you cant pair an i7 vs a 8350 because they arent on the same price range. an i5 3570k is about the same price as a 8350 and they perform about the same. Dont look at it, core per core, or ghz vs ghz. Its more of a "is this 150 AMD cpu the same performance as this 150 dollar Intel CPU"
  18. ^I agree, even though I would like to say my 4170 OC'd is better than the i3, but it would be a blind bias assumption, as I haven't used an i3 for gaming before. I got to say I would have got an i5 if I knew then what I do now. : ( But I got to say for $125 bucks I could replace it every week lol
  19. Wow i forgot about this post. All of your posts are entirely correct. I was clueless to overclocking at this point. I was using amd overdrive software to overclock and yes, my poor cpu was very heated up. I didnt end up keeping that overclock, as it was obviously not stable as i tried to make myself believe. Sorry to bump this old thread again, but I feel too stupid not to.

    Current overclock is 4.4ghz@1.4v Temps stay around 60 on full load. I did eventually learn how to overclock correctly(through the bios). :)

    Just for fun i ran cinebench for a 5.91 in case anyone cares. :P
