  2. is a fx 4100 good for overclocking
  3. If your going intel.
    i5 3570k

    AMD
    FX-6300

    Don't go Bulldozer, if your going to go AMD, get something that is Piledriver, like an FX 4300 or FX 6300
  5. um kiowa789 i will take ur suggest but the i5 3570k is 225 dollars way outof my price

    my budget is 300 dollars aud
  6. heres what i was thinking of fx 4300,Asus M5A78L-M LX V2 AM3+,h40,serpon 145 for bios update if needed
  7. I second the FX-6300, technically all the FX processors I know of are overclockable and all K edition Intel processors are overclockable.

    Edit: Not the best board for overclocking...

    :hello:
  10. heres what i was thinking of fx 4300,Asus M5A78L-M LX V2 AM3+,h40,serpon 145 for bios update if needed so what do u guys think of that
  11. Swap your Mobo
    Preferably the M5A97 Motherboard.
    FX 4300 is what you want, good choice.
    Not entirely sure about the H40.

    Otherwise, everything else looks good!
  12. Well my only concern is the board you have is not for overclocking enthusiasts, though I recall hearing the board can achieve somewhere like a 10% overclock.
  13. well i do have a cm hyper tx3 evo right now

    which one are u talking about social fox
  15. I'd suggest getting a motherboard with VRM heatsinks and a higher power phase than the current one. I have the M5A78L-M LX PLUS and I can tell you not to overclock, I killed my first one with a hefty overclock of 4 ghz on the Phenom II X4 955.

    Edit: I believe the 10% overclock was for your currently selected board, will look around to verify that right now.
  16. M5A97 Motherboard

    Wait are you planning on getting that board? If so that's a great board to overclock on, its also got VRM heatsinks.

    Now that is an even better motherboard! Is that on sale? Price seems low for it....
  19. nah its out of stock
  20. Well, uhh.....back to the M5A97?
  21. do u guys want some links so u can help find a good motherboard

  22. the first link is not really computer related, more in to something else :lol:
  23. hey social fox with that board u suggeste will it need a bios update

    Depends, if you get a motherboard from a new batch with the newest bios then you wont need to update it. If not you will need to.

    Take this board:
    http://www.austin.net.au/pc-components/motherboards/asus-m5a97-r2-motherboard-socket-am3-amd-970.html

    It is cheaper than the one chanelight has posted.
  25. and i have seen the fx 4100- $110 or fx 4300- 135 dollars but i want to see how far i could push the fx 4100

  26. FX-4100 is definetly not worth it, if you want to go for it then reconsider and grab a Phenom II X4 955/965 for cheaper and it will outperform the FX-4100.
  27. autually i can grab a phemon x4 965 be for 80 bucks should just get that

    If you leaning towards the FX-4100 then grab that 965. The 965 is still a capable processor, this is the black edition variant right?
  29. yea it is and means if the temps get too high get a better cpu cooler
  30. yes should get a better cooler, perhaps the Hyper 212 EVO?
  31. yea for sure or like the h40 if thats ok cpu cooler
  32. skitz9417 said:

    Nah, the H40 is not worth the price tag. Stick to the Hyper 212, add another fan if you want better performance.
  33. Well that's the standard price on Newegg (Canada) as well so its okay I guess. Though do look around, you may find one cheaper.
  34. hey is it true that steamroller is coming next year
  35. I heard its been delayed to something like 2014...
  36. damn and i have heard they are staying with am3+ socket motherboard what i might do is buy am3 motherboard and store it away untill steamroller comes
  37. its a 50/50 chance the may use the am3+ socket, anyways I gotta get going to uhh....prepare my survival kit for the zombie apocalypse that's happening tomorrow (sarcasm intended).
