Gigabyte’s “The Killers” Overclocking Team Smokes AMD Trinity APU and Vishera CPU Records
Using a Gigabyte F2A85X-UP4 motherboard, the crew cranked an AMD 5800K APU with a stock speed of 3.8GHz all the way up to 7.86GHz. “We are extremely excited with this OC result because the F2A85X-UP4 is the first motherboard from GIGABYTE to use our new Ultra Durable 5 technology,” said Henry Kao, Vice President of the GIGABYTE Motherboard Business Unit in a press release. “These results solidify GIGABYTE’s position as the go-to platform for AMD overclocking enthusiasts.”
The team also goosed an 8-core AMD FX8350 Vishera CPU up to 8.47GHz slapped in a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 motherboard.
