A friend of mine overclocked by fx-6300 to 4.3 GHz.


A great jumping off point, but you'll want to upgrade if reasonably possible to prevent throttling issues.

Yes this supports FX 6300 I have both, I have got mine clocked at 4.2. I would recommend getting a after market cooler for the FX 6300 the stock cooler is terrible.

Yeah I got it overclocked to 4ghz, go into bios and disable fan speed it makes a huge difference it overheats otherwise. With it enabled the fan doesnt run at full speed.
