Hardware Monitoring
High Temperature (FAN On) 65
(Default: 65 °C)
Normal Temperature (FAN Off)
50
(Default: 60 °C)


My R6300v2's do not have a fan. What function does this serve? Does it throttle back performance? I have it overclocked just a bit, 900, What happens at 65 °C? (according to the above setting)

Also, I read this stuff all around about can handle 80. Is that C or F?

80F is 26C, so it is definitely 80C

My R6300v2 that is not overclocked is running at around 76 C now, no activity and room temperature is 26C

Well, Google could have helped me make sense of that. My Error thinking conversation was bigger rather than smaller. 80c = 176 F. Thats hot.

So ok F talk is out, all C talk.

Yes. Mine seems to hang at the 64.7 mark. I haven't found a setting that changes that. I mean more overclock or changing the settings... Still 64.7.

Obviously overclock is trial and error. What does that setting for temp. "Do"

IF you had a router with fan assisted cooling it would do just as it says. When the temp reaches 60 deg C it turns on. When it drops to 50 it turns off. You can change those numbers to your own preferences. It does nothing on the R6300V2.

Does nothing. Thank you.

Just wanted to make sure it wasn't throttling something back.

I will morph this thread into anyone wanting to comment on the results of their overclock on the R6300V2.

I have identified how to do it. But the r9000 thread indicates that RAM doesn't seem to be affected. It seems to change on the R6300V2.

I understand that everyone will have different results.

Just wondering what others have found as stable.

PS. HAPPY THANKSGIVING

What are your overclocking settings? Did you really gain useful power?

This is exactly the discussion I wanted to have and hear about.

I have mine at 900 / 533.

I am not getting a steady rate from my isp, so I wasn't sure myself. The wifi stumbler on my phone seemed to improve. I hadn't messed with it too much other than this slight increase.

I can say that there is an overclock option in the R6300V2. I was fine if it caught fire and so I doubled it's rate. 300 to 600, i think. I could absolutely tell in range and speed, for about 5 minutes, until it shut down.

After it cooled, it works fine again btw. I wasn't wanting to gamble that much on the R6300V2's.

Also the RAM over clock, I wondered if that was even needed as administration shows fine on RAM. I am not running anything, though, maybe heavier users had found benefits.

As I said, the nighthawk thread indicates that RAM doesn't change for them. And it indicates they are getting benefits from processor overclock.

There are of course the naysayers that don't want to shorten life and are worried about fans. At that overclock, temps are fine for me.

CPU 65.2 °C / WL0 46.1 °C / WL1 47.6 °C

i just overclocked my R6300v2 to 1000,666 (then rebooted, made sure its in effect), i wanted to see if i will gain a speed improvement for USB file transfers, it became worse!

15.6 MB/S before overclock
12MB/S after overclock

Removed the internal 2.4GHz antenna
Installed external RP-SMA connectors
Added small fan to heatsink over the CPU
Fan is 12V, but connected to the USB3 port 5V supply
Threw a few small headsinks on chips that were "warm"
Temps now idle around 50C
