Well first of all plz don't say go to ryzen ..I would if I had the money .But I'm a uni student away from home and rent is more important to me than my PC. I'll probably upgrade in april and save some money for my summer vacations too .Anyway I have a pretty cheap mobo, even for a fx , a biostar a960d v2+ mobo (from what I've read in the forums a bad mobo but ig that is the first build mistakes) .Anyway I recently swapped my fx 6300 for a 8150 so I can play bf v conquest decently (medium settings 60+fps.achievable with a rx 470 8gb and 16gb ram) and I would if the mobo wasn't thermal throttling .So what could be a good underclock/undervolt for the cpu. I also heard about heatsinks on mosfets work too.will these be any good?

First mistake:
fx 6300 for a 8150
with your board, you should've stuck with the 6300 alone and just saved the money for a brand new Ryzen build.

I wouldn't drop any more money on the platform, instead make sure that you've got a fan pointed at the VRM area to cool that mosfet, although you shouldn't have gone for the 8150, to begin with. People who have worked with a motherboard that's somewhat close to supporting the 8000 series of FX processors from AMD struggled, so you won't fair any better with a mediocre board.

Btw a bag of 30 heatsinks costs 2.30€ straight from China and it is proved that it helps a lot with thermal throttling .
