The first time AMD's FX-8150 processor found itself in the Guinness World Records, it took a team of AMD sponsored overclockers (and a whole lot of liquid helium) working together to push the processor to 8429.38MHz. And this time? Andre Yang, working by himself, used the same model chip to break the record set in September and set a new one, which now stands at 8461.51MHz. Andre Yang accomplished the feat with a healthy dose of liquid nitrogen and an eye popping 1.992V. He used a base clockspeed of 272.95MHz with a 31x multiplier. He used the same model motherboard as the previous overclocking... Read more...
Hardcore PC enthusiasts who try to squeeze every possible MHz out of their systems by overclocking and swapping out core system components need to have access to tools that deliver precise information about those components--especially the respective speeds those components are running at. Two such tools that have long-assisted overclockers and benchmarkers are CPU-Z and GPU-Z--both are free applications that run on Windows machines. CPU-Z gathers information about your system's CPU, motherboad, and memory. GPU-Z gathers information about your system's video cards and GPUs.The problem is, with... Read more...
