Gigabyte’s “The Killers” Overclocking Team Smokes AMD Trinity APU and Vishera CPU Records

A team of overclockers dubbed “The Killers” broke the record for the fastest overclock of an AMD Trinity APU at the AMD Extreme OC show in Taiwan and also took out the record for AMD’s Vishera platform for good measure.

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.
