Will an AMD FX-6300 work with an AsRock N68C-GS FX

Hi All,

As the title says, will an AMD FX-6300 processor work with an ASRock > N68C-GS FX motherboard?

I'm planning to upgrade my system due to FPS drops whilst playing DOTA 2. I've concluded that since the FPS drops happen after several minutes while playing and seem to have nothing to do with the amount of visuals on my screen when it happens, it's my processor bottle-necking my system. Hope someone can shed some insight.

Yes, if you make sure you have bios 1.30 on it first. Next time you should look at the cpu support list like below.

Also are you sure its not a heat issue your having?

Thanks. I didn't know you could look it up. Great! I'm currently on P1.40 so it shouldn't be an issue.

I don't think so as I can replicate the issue by hosting my own game on LAN and get poor FPS off the bat. Also, I disabled AMD Cool and Quiet meaning my CPU does not downclock at any point in time even under light load.

Is there anything else I should be considering before changing my processor?

you would probably be better off getting a gpu upgrade instead, although you are gaming at a very low resolution already. is it only that game that slows down? some games actually do not do well with oc'ing you might want to try at stock cpu clocks. that being said iv never played dota2 but i imagine its pretty cpu intensive since its a moba.

Hmm, do you think that it's my GPU that is causing the slowdowns? Unfortunately, I don't have any other games installed as of know. But I previously had Skyrim and Fallout New Vegas. Both ran with fairly high settings with no FPS drops to speak of.

Both of those should be just as or more intensive I would think of your in a city with alot of npc's. Sounds like Dota is overly stressing your pc, like I said try it without a oc as well. You might want to also logg your gpu and cpu temps. With something like evga procession x. That way you can see if it's getting hot enough to throttle your gpu to near 2d graphic power levels.

Oh, yeah. Forgot to mention that I actually stopped my OC a couple of months ago. It just wasn't as stable as stock speeds. There was also a noticeable drop in in-game performance once I returned to stock speeds.

Maximum I got for my CPU is 52 degrees Celsius. I'm using Coretemp to monitor my CPU temperature. I wanted to try EVGA Precision X 15 to monitor my GPU temps as well but running it simply ended with a "No supported hardware detected!" error message. Anyway I tried SpeedFan and I ended up with a maximum temperature of 66 degrees.

i guess precision x is only for nvidia cards, and those are very good temps. in that case if you have seen a huge hit with stock clocks then cpu may be the way to go. I'm just wondering if that is a big enough jump. the only ones i have used is the 8120, and 8350.

Really? Those are in degrees Celsius. I always thought they were high. Not really a huge hit. Perhaps a 2-5 FPS hit if I recall correctly. Those are actually out of my price range. But if going for a 6300 doesn't solve my concern, I'd rather not upgrade at all.

If your temps at load are 50 yeah that's low I idle atm since I have Flux in my water loop(forgot to flush the radiator lol) at around 42, and load at like 63 when rendering. Someone with better experience in amd will have to chime in with chip for chip comparison although I imagine it's way better than what you have now. What's your budget for parts? Pushing at your resolution shouldn't be very hard.
