AMD FX 4300 overclock and voltage requirement?

If I overclock it to 4.4ghz, what's the voltage requirement for that? Can I go any higher?

More about 4300 overclock voltage requirement
  1. the voltage depends from chip to chip but I would say about 1.38v at 4.4ghz would be possible but try 1.4 if 1.38 is too less.

    And yes you can go higher provided you have good cooling

    with simple air cooling.

    hell, I didn't even do it in the bios and really tweak it out. this is straight from the AMD Overdrive auto clock util.
  3. Coolermaster X6 heatsink/fan has arrived and been installed.
    Core voltage raised by +0.075 and a simple multiplier increase has the chip running at 4.5Ghz.
    After an 8 hour run with Prime95 every core was still active and temperatures peaked at 64*C.
    Overclocks past 4.2Ghz with my chip/mobo combination failed Prime95 testing without the vCore increase.
    Now that I've raised the vCore, I will see how far it can go on this new voltage.
  4. I got my amd 6300 at 4.5ghz stable at 1.35 voltage

  6. If you have good water cooling like at least Corsair H-100i you can raise your v-core up to 1.5v and raise clock speed to 5.0 and it will be stableand temps should stay around 55c
