FX6300 overclocked makes no difference in performance.

The FX6300 is notorious for being easily overclocked, and it's true, but despide getting no BSOD's, I also get no difference in performance after overclocking. I've recently dusted out my cooler, temps rarely exceed 65 degrees celcius so why is it?

My Rig:

OS: Windows 7 64 Home Premium
Monitor: LG Led 20EN33
CPU: AMD FX 6300
Video: GTX 750 1GB
HD: WD 500GB 5400 Rpm + Samsung 1TB SATA II 7200rpm + 2TB Seagate + SSD Kingston 240GB
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-LMT78-S2
RAM: 8GB RAM DDR3
PSU: 500 Watts

  1. That means whatever you're trying to play is being held back by the gpu not the CPU, it's very weak as well.

  2. Hi Rafael,

    When you say it makes no difference, how are you measuring things.

    You need to be sure that your CPU is the actual bottleneck, otherwise small changes in CPU will not make any difference.

    I would guess that you could benefit with more RAM and probably look into your video card, but then you can start looking at a new rig.

    cheers
