    Yup, I am suprised. I was just hoping my temps would be low enough so I could try for 5GHz, but I don't think that's possible. From reading online about the FX-6300, it seems most people out there can't get it up to 5GHz either. so, now I have it running comfortably at 4.1GHz.

    Well, while chatting with a fellow over at overclockers.com, he informed me that the VRM on the MSI 970A-G43 (my mobo) has a tendency to blow up when pushed to hard.

    So, I think I'm gonna take a break from overclocking.

    It's so tempting to try pushing it juuuust a little more.

    Get a chipset cooler and better CPU cooling first. Learn the max voltage for your CPU, and stay way below it.

    I was wondering if it was possible to give to much voltage.

    You can handle any voltage you need Chuck, you just need to add the right Flux Capacitor.

    I guess Paul's Flux Capacitor wasn't working then.
