FX 6300, is there a way to make it run 100% only when gaming?

I overclocked my FX 6300 to 4.3 and when it was under my desk the extra fan noise did not bother me. Now that it is on my desk, it is a lot more noticeable. Is there a way to have the processor run at lower speeds when not under load, and then boost up while gaming? thanks

  1. There's an option for that on the BIOS. It will use the turbo boost when needed and scale down the MHz when you're idle.

    I saw that option, do I just enable it and that's it? Because when I enabled it another option for a Ratio came up and I wasn't sure if I needed to do anything.

  3. The problem may be that you increased the Voltage and even if the CPU slows down some of the extra heat is still there.

    So the voltage doesn't go down with the lower cpu speed?

  5. Some of the newer CPUs on auto might do it but older ones don't. I'm not much of an AMD guy so I'm not sure about yours. You could run HW Monitor and see what it's doing.

    I think you just need to enable it. Do it and test it.
