Overclockers push AMD`s FX-8350 past 8Ghz
Overclockers at Canada's biggest LAN party have pushed an AMD FX 8350 past 8Ghz (8027MHz). This was achieved using some extreme voltage and cooing (duh!) Pretty fast!
"The feat was achieved with an ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z, Corsair Dominator GTX3 memory, Corsair AX850i PSU, and Ryba LN2 pot. Achieving a max speed of 8027.93MHz required 1.968 volts through the core and a multiplier of 31.5 and bus clock of 254.86MHz. Of course, only 2 cores and threads were active for the run."
just a bit over 8Ghz, it was actually 8027Mhz, still that`s quite the overclock
