Overclocking The

Overclocking XX The family of Phenom II is the first AMD eliminate “cold defect” (cold bug), which is a physical phenomenon that causes earlier microprocessors produced by this company cease to operate when exposed to temperatures abnormally low. This bug prevented more enthusiastic overclockers cooling methods can use “extreme” as the dry ice or liquid nitrogen. It is expected that the eventual elimination of the bug to perform more CPU overclocking with these than with any others that AMD has made in recent times. In a previous demonstration of the potential of overclocking Phenom II, Sami “Macci “M kinen (a world class overclocker) used a Phenom X4 940 II motherboard with a Gigabyte MA790GP-DS4H, with a sophisticated cooling system composed of nitrogen and liquid helium citation needed , to bring the CPU to the surprising frequency 6.3 GHz (approximately twice its rated speed). .Subsequently, on 30 April 2009, a team calling itself “LimitTeam” managed to successfully accelerate an AMD Phenom X4 955 Black Edition (Deneb core) and then sent its findings to the developers of benchmarking software CPU-Z , to be validated by the program. In this case, the group opted for an Asus motherboard M4A79T Deluxe, grandly dubbed “the multidimensional performance platform from Asus, which supports a CPU with a TDP of 140 watts and chipset (chipset) AMD 790FX / SB750. Additionally, the team added 4 GB of DDR3 RAM Apacer brand and a video card ATI Radeon 4800. As a result, the group reached a whopping 7127 MHz, exceeding the previous record of 6.7 GHz, however, revealed nothing about LimitTeam its sophisticated cooling method, although it could be liquid nitrogen.
