AMD Phenom II Hardcore Overclocking Event

15 thumbs up

After three days and 300 liters of used liquid nitrogen, what was the outcome?  The LHe setup used by K|ngp|n provided monstrous CPU overclocks and some of the highest benchmarks ever seen from an AMD-based system.




 


The combination of extreme cooling, handpicked high-end hardware, and some of the most talented overclockers in the game produced some excellent results. An AMD world record 6.89GHz CPU overclock was validated with all four cores enabled. Also, a new 3DMark06 world record was set at 37,339 with the processor running at 6.47GHz coupled to a pair of Radeon HD 4870 X2 video cards running in a Quad-CrossFireX configuration. Although the 7GHz milestone was not reached, the event was successful in many aspects. New records were achieved, but more importantly AMD got to showcase the Phenom II processor in some extreme overclocked conditions and everyone had a fun time while doing it.

Now that is impressive 6.89 on a quad. Now we need to see them numbers on a water cooling unit Big Smile  That can run 24/7/365.

If only they could do that on AIR, for around $250!

Oh Wow, on a quad that's insane. I though 4.5Ghz on a Quad was really high.

Well, once you start using your noggin and coming up with alternative means of cooling, anything is possible.
