AMD Phenom II X3 720 BE overclocked to 6GHz with 4 cores activated

Posted on Thursday, March 26 2009 @ 13:01:20 CET by

An overclocked named SpeedTime-Silence has managed to overclock an AMD Phenom II X3 720 processor to 6006.62MHz with all four cores activated. The chip was running at a HTT bus speed of 231.02MHz with a multiplier of 26. Unfortunately we don't know how he did it, but it's probably safe to assume this overclocking feat involved some LN2 cooling and rather high voltages.

Some information about the hardware that was used can be found at the CPU-Z validation link. The overclocking system features a Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-UD5P motherboard, a 1GB Corsair DDR2 module running at 462MHz (1:2) with 5-5-5-15 timings, and a GeForce 8500 GT.
