    Overclocking FX-6100 - Games runs too fast?


    recently I began to overclock my FX-6100 3.3 Ghz. I can manage to get it as high as 4,3 Ghz with the stock cooler fan. But the problem is that my games, particulary skyrim, runs too fast. And by that I mean that the game itself is going as much as double the speed, whilst the sound is at the normal tempo. The funny thing is that if I go down to 3,6 Ghz it will run normally.

    What is the cause of this?

    AMD FX-6100 3.3ghz running at 4275 Mhz.
    Core multiplier 19x
    HT multiplier 12x
    HT ref. clock 225 Mhz
    PCIe Speed 100
    Voltage 1.5250

    Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz 16Gb clocked to 1800Mhz.

    XFX Radeon HD 6870 running at stock.

    and a 500 Watt PSU.

    Yes, my bios is updated. I run a Gigabyte 970A-UD3.

    You aren't the first person to have this issue, the only solution I have seen work is a different video driver but even then that doesn't work for everybody.

    Have a look here.

    I'd suggest that you take this next bit seriously. You are over clocking that chip and using that graphics card and have a 500 watt power supply. You are going to be incredibly close to having a lot of weird issues and/or a really nasty power supply failure. My last $130 550 Watt PSU with a 40 amp 12V rail allowed my computer to start and run most of the time but I was having so many odd issues, then I realized that the over clocked bulldozer draws a silly amount of power(twice as much as a similarly over clocked i5 2500k for example). My graphics card also draws less power than yours.

    Try to open up a command window and type in this:

    bcdedit /set useplatformclock true

    It worked for me when I had similar problem.

    wow thats so pretty hardcore overclocking you've done there! Try to make sure that all your Skyrim updates are installed and all your hardware drivers are up to date also. But thats all ive got for you right now.

    try underclocking your mem
    set HT freq close to 2000

    I just want to say that you shouldn't be using the stock cooler if you're overclocking as much as 1Ghz. Especially on a cpu that can cook eggs.
