AMD FX 6300 and GTX 960 best overclocking?

Do you guys have any ideas on what the best overclocking sets there are for both these? I'm looking to game, and for now its doing okay..
(I know I should upgrade, but I'm waiting 1 or 2 years for a reasonable price range XD)

Thanks for the support!

  1. Don't even start OCing if you don't have a good aftermarket CPU cooler. As for OCing processor it greatly depends on the MB and for GPU which exact one it is and it's and case cooling.

    Yeah.. Pretty much this. You dont want to even try OCing if you dont have a decent cooler and case to do so. As stated CPU OCing depends greatly on your MoBo but it also literally depends on the chip in the CPU. You could get 2 of the exact same cpu but one might not OC worth a shit and start overheating as soon as you raise it from stock clock speeds and the other might get a 30-40% overclock on it before it starts causing problems. Its all about the silicone lottery. And GPUs are the same. Sure you could ask what people are overclocking that specific CPU and GPU to, but you may never even reach those numbers or you may be able to push it farther then other people can

  4. You should be able to do easy 4.5GHz with that setup. Just start upping the multiplier in the bios one step at the time and check results. Once you stat getting errors, set a bit higher voltage for processor and proceed further. Download and use AMD Overdrive https://www.techspot.com/downloads/4645-amd-overdrive.html to test with and follow temps and voltage data. Use Logging to see what was happening during tests.
