My First Overclocking Experience - FX6100

So today I decided I would give overclocking a go for the first time ever. Here's the first stable configuration I got. I'm currently stress testing it in prime95.

Also, I'm using an Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 Board

how's that running? also, i was wondering if u can go into benchmark testings because im also curious about it

One of the cores stopped working after 15 minutes in prime95 so I dropped the multiplier by .5 (down 4300MHz instead of 4400) and went up on the CPU voltage from 1.4 to around 1.42, and it made it through a half hour of prime95 without any errors. I'm gonna run a stress test overnight and then do some benchmarking tomorrow. I'll post what I get here! I also may go for 4.5GHz and see what kind of temps I'll be working with.


What cooler are you using?

Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo. It's running completely stable now and went through a 9 hour prime95 test with no errors. I'm NOT satisfied with the clock speed I was able to get with the voltage this high though.

How were you able to keep the voltage so low?
