Load-Line Calibration enable/disable Amd Fx 6300 OC?

I notice when this is enabled under load my Cpu voltage increses, is this safe?

Amd Fx 6300 @ 4.5 Vcore 1.43 in bios
Cpuid reports 1.440 and under full load 1.52
ASUS M5A97 R2.0

    If you are OC'ing to high levels you should disable it and control it by yourself because you can burn your cpu. I once forgot to disable it and i hitted 105c on my 3770k for like a sec ... My H100 was all burned :'(

  2. If i disable it it shows my Vcore lower than what it is and i also get Vdrops

    Also i ram prime95 for 2 hrs with now errors
    Play Crysis 3 beta for 1hr+ no problem same with BattleField 3 but 10 mins in DayZ and my Pc restarts :(
  3. What are your temps on full load when it's enabled ? If you have someissues with it when it's disabled, keep it enabled. Just watch your temps.

  4. on full load with prime95 it goes up to 62C but gaming it stays in the 40-45c

    Great temps. Increase the voltage a little bit until everything works great with no freeze - blue screen.

  6. I only get restarts, how is it that i ran prime95 for 2hrs which max out my cpu but 10 mins in DayZ my computer restarts?
    And its not a temp issue cause i have the temps display while am gaming
  7. If you want to be sure of the stability of the processor, prime95 isn't the way to go. Prime95 tests are basicly to see what's your highest temperature and some basic stability testing. Use this software instead : http://www.ocbase.com/download.php?fileext=exe

    It's called Occt. 30 min test and you should be fine. If it's not stable it will most likely show up in the 5 first minutes but just incase, do 30 mins.

  8. Oh OK i have that software and am actually using it right now :D
    Do i use CPU Occt/CPU Linpack mode?


    Update;
    I ran CPU Occt this morning and it says error detected on Core #0 in 17mins

    Update;
    Increase CPU Voltage a little and the same core fail in under 5 mins
  9. Increase voltage to 1.45 and here is my results



    Voltage went up to 1.48
    Temp @ 59C

    That's more than good. Keep going up.

    That's more than good. Keep going up. 70c max and don't go to a higher voltage. On Intel, the max safe voltage is around 1.4-1.5.

  12. Ok thanks later i'll do some gaming and see if its really stable, Do i need to increase CPU/NB and HT Frequencies too?

    i heard that you can get lower voltage that way

    And am a try a test with LLC Disable and see what happens

    Update;
    with LLC disable test failed @ 14s
  13. Isn't around 60C getting to the breaking point for the FX CPU's?

    As long as you don't hit 70c you're fine but don't go over it. I just seen on a review that the max cpu voltage for fx processors under water cooling (Corsair Hxx) is 1.55 so don't go over 1.50.

  15. Oh jeez, I thought 60C was the max when I was overclocking my FX. I guess I could've squeezed a bit more lol

    You can squeeze a little more but this is not recommended (just like getting over 80c with Intel)

    Keep it under 60c if you want it to live a long life and 70c if you want best performances.

  17. Am not gonna increase my voltage any more because am getting up to 1.48 and am a upgrade to water cooling soon too. My temps seems OK now.

    I have a question, Lets say Occt max temps out @ 70C but normal computer use Gaming/Rendering only goes up to 50C does that still shorten the life?
  18. As long as you don't do Occt all day long it should OK but not very safe.


    - The Brownie
  19. OK thanks, is there any way to use less voltage?

    And why i get so much Vdrop with LLC disable?

    I mean from 1.45 to under 1.3
  20. As long as you don't use it that way for more than 2 weeks you should be fine (because you get your watercooling soon).


    - The Brownie
  21. But how water cooling gonna help lower voltages?

    Oh sorry ....

    What i meant is that you will be able to keep that voltage with water cooling because your temps will be lower. 1.48 i acceptable if you have good temps

  23. sorry for the late reply and am getting much better voltage now, only goes up to 1.45 under load

    and i found this

    http://www.pcper.com/reviews/Processors/AMD-FX-8350-and-FX-6300-Processor-Review-Vishera-Breaks-Cover/Power-Overclocking-

    And am getting better results than that :D

    That's good :P

    Hope everything's stable and cool

  25. got down to 1.440, but i set my ram @ 9-9-9-24 1600 and CPU/NB at 2000, gonna set my ram back @ 9-10-9-27 1866 and see what happens. Then the CPU/NB @ 2200 or 2400 if i could :)
