Hello guys so one of things is i'm ocing my FX 6300 i allrady got it at 4.2Ghz stable at stock volts, but for beter cooling i just lowed oc to 4.1 Ghz at 1.320V and my temps are idle 9.5c on the CoolerMaster cooler from FX series i got, with termal grece Noctua, so the thing is next i need help from you guys to know if i'm doing all corect,


1st i did is i flashed my bios with my AMD Phenom II x4 960T to 1103ver. Not Last BIOS Update! ps: this cpu was ocd also.

2nd i installed my new CPU AMD Piledriver FX 6300 BE 6core cpu then i start pc and get in the BIOS and set it to default set, then restart and loged in to Win7 Ultimate SP1 64Bit, next i did was instal two HotFix for FX series CPU, then downloaded the last BIOS Ver 1503 from ASUS download center for my mobo ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 780 ChipSet, OK until now i belive,

3rd Restart and press Alt+F2 to get EzFlash then backup my old bios 1103 then Instaled new one 1503 so pc restart all fine, got in to bios and start OCing, so things i did was.

4th in CPU config i desebled option Cool'n'Quiet rest was default oh and one thing didn't show dno way is C6 my friend got same board same bios same cpu and he got that option i don't ??! this is one problem dno if it's right :/ so next thing i did was .

5th I got in to JuperSetConfiguration to OC , in CPU section the CPU FSB, i set 200 and my mem to 1600Mhz, and next i did was deseble the TurboCore and for rise my CPU Speed for OC i just set my Multiplier to x20.5 that = to 4.1Ghz and my HT is set to Auto is 2200, and the last thing i did i Desebled the CPU Quiet Fan, to get beter cooling, so my temps are super cool 9.5c some times drops to 8.7c in idle, load it go up to 35c-31c so nothing more i didn't change guys.

Dno if did all as it should be, i run prime for some time and for now all fine, oh i have an 80Plus Silver PSU 700W and my gpu is ASUS DCU II GTX 660 TI OC Edition, and my last thing is dnow how fix my Cinebench reading of my Cores of CPU (

here an video of some guy with older series 1St gen of FX 6100 and Cinebench 11.5 reads 6Cores 6 treads, but my Reads 3 Cores and 6 Treads (

Video : Cinebench 11.5 on AMD fx-6100 6core @ 4Ghz - YouTu...

Timings comes from the RAM Specs itself, if it need´s 1T or 2T or CL 7 or CL8, this is stored in the SPD of the RAM (specification), what type of RAM u need or use is your choice or you go by QVL (Qualified Vendor List downloadable @ Manufacturer asus,asrock,gigabyte.........) of Mainboard manufacturer to have 100% compatible sticks

u can switch timings without a problem, but wrong timings can make your system in unusable state!!!

your QLV List:

for Asus Crosshair V u could take Corsairs Vengeance,G.Skill Ripjaws
i use this KIT:




for the mem size i would preffer min 8GB RAM today
all depends on how much u wanna spend


C6 is a sleep/idle state so in full load you will not/should see a difference.
