I am wanting to OC a FX-6350 becasue it is bottlenecking my GPU, a Radeon HD 7950, and am in need of some advice or confirmation. I want to be able to get as close as possible to 4.5 Ghz without blowing it up or getting new parts.
I am to understand that I should set voltage to 1.42 and the multiplier to 42, is this correct? Also do I need to do any prep before hand, like disable any systems in bios, I have gotten yes and no answers to this. I already have my monitoring software.
Also if anyone has use a Gigabyte 970A-D3P I would like to know how it went and if it is a good mobo to OC with.
I am running Air Cooled not water cooled, is 4.5 Ghz still viable?
Here is the rest of my specs in case you need them:
GPU- Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 7950 w/ Boost
CPU- AMD FX-6350
MOBO- Gigabyte 970A-D3P
CPU Cooler- Gemin II S524
PSU- HEC 850TS
Thank you for any help you can give, I just want to know absolutely what I am doing before I go in.
