Well finally got around to buying my FX 6300, two days after I got it, I started kicking myself in the *** cause the 8300's price lowered to $120! :( anyways Im going to sport the 6300 for now til I get bored but heres whats I've got goin on so far. Got the 6300 running at 4.4ghz stable on my same Hyper T4 from my last CPU, getting a nice 55c under full load :) running 12gb of 1333 ddr3 G.Skill RipJaws in red, Motherboards a MSI g43 970a. Graphics card is the same, just overclocked a little more due to the newer mobo allowing a slightly higher clock in the core for some reason. Anyways feel free to ask whatever questions you'd like or leave a comment :)
Mainly for gaming and everyday use. Motherboard, CPU, and RAM will be upgraded in a few weeks but I figured Id post this here just for memories :D
Ok lets start talking about the system...
CPU is overclocked to 3.45ghz, I've had it higher (3.6) but figured id turn it down just for safety measures. Shes stable at 70c under full load.
Ram is running at stock clocks but with a +0.2v
FSB is also at +0.2v
GPU is overclocked using Afterburner, I just got this card so I am taking my time slowly turning it up a little more everyday while monitoring temps. As of right now the clocks are : Core - 1021, Memory - 1333, Power Limit 18%. Max temps are 64-65c under full load.
Still running my trustly Velociraptors that have never let me down and have great transfer rates even on a SATA II motherboard. 125mb/s :)
Case is the Corsair Spec 01, I've added a AF140 and AF120 Red LED to the front intake, AF120 Red LED to the rear exhaust,
replaced my Cooler Master Hyper fan with the stock red LED case fan that came with the case, surprisingly it actually lowered the temps 4-5c due to the it being somewhat of a static pressure fan compared to the original one it had.
One might say that having the CX 750m is a bit of overkill but i assure you it isn't, the cpu alone pulls nearly 200w after overclocking. I wanted some head room and got the PSU for $60 brand new from a friend.
Feel free to leave comment or questions, as I said though, the motherboard will be replaced soon. Going with a FX 6300 set up :D
