    Default FInally hit 5Ghz on a FX-6300

    Been working on trying to hit 5Ghz since owning the Sabertooth 990fx r2.0 but couldn't do it due to VRegs overheating. Made it with the GB UD7 with cpu/mosfet block. TIM used was Tuniq TX-4

    That would be an interesting method. I'm running a Koolance PMP-500, I believe the Alphacool Raystorm CPU block, EK Mosfet/NB paired with an XSPC RS360 (120mm fans in push w/ dual NZXT 200mm in pull).

    Good job there Joe! Congrats on breaking 5ghz! AMD might not be top dog in cpus but they make great chips for overclocking.

    I recently read a review/test where they used spring water for watercooling, no pumps or anything ofc... If I remember correctly, they got temps all the way down to 6 degrees celcius

    LOL guys don't get it twisted: AMD chipsets have issues with their temp sensors: they are horribly inaccurate at lower temps to the point that they will read well below ambient temperatures. I have had a 4100 register at 9C... on stock cooling... they have to get hot to be accurate x-D
