Just read the guides from Static FX. They really helped with my voltage questions. Thanks FX. If anyone has any other suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

Also, the guides did not mention increasing voltage in relation to bus speed. Will a v increase help with a bus increase? Which v increase do I use?

Thanks for all of the replies guys. I actually used the UEFI Bios and let it do its auto thing for a start. The FSB was pushed by the board from 200 to 229 and the cpu multiplier went from 17 to 18.5. This gave me a 4.1 GHz on an AMD 6300 3.5 GHz stock. I tried to push it a bit further but got the big blueSOD when I upped the bus passed 230. Also, I upped the cpu multiplier to 19.5 (4.25 GHz) but it also crashed after about an hour or so. Can this be stabilized by upping the voltage? Voltage makes me nervous (electricity does in general) as it may fry a system. How high should I go safely? Core voltage is currently at 1.275. My board also set my DDR3 2133 to over 2400 with the TPU turned on. Pretty cool setup from ASUS. FYI, I have a H55 water cooler connected to my cpu.

This is kinda fun. Thanks again for your input. There is an overwhelming number of guides out there and it helps to get personnel suggestions.

Got it. Thanks for the info. I'll stick to the usuals.

Hi all, although I am fairly tech literate I have just stated taking the OCing plunge. I currently have my AMD 6300 running at a stable 4.2 GHz. I have also just received a Kraken G10 to use with a Corsair H55 for my GPU (fun day ahead of me). My question is, does changing the bus speed on the modo make a difference anymore? Back in the 90's and early 2000's changing from 100MHz to say, 200, made a big difference. Still a thing? My mobo is an Asus M5A99X EVO R2.0 and my chipset is currently at 200 MHz. Can and will bumping it higher make a difference?

Hi all, this is a question regarding overclocking today's bus speeds on mobos. Is it even a thing anymore? A decade or so ago you could overclock the bus speed on a mobo to increase overall performance. Can you still do this or is this no longer a bottleneck for the system? I am using an ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0 with an AMD RD9x0 chipset. Bus speed is 200 MHz. Does this still refer to the FSB and does it make a difference in performance anymore? Although I am not new to PC tech I am new to overclocking and remember back in the day when FSB was a bottleneck. So is this still true with multi core processors, etc.? thx for listening

"much like Far Cry's Blood Dragon was in that series"

Which means it is probably going to be the same locations only with a different coating.

Though for that price, I guess a person can't really complain.

Not true, Krista. I care. I also care about what you think too.
