AMD’s A8-3870K reaches 5.87GHz/1.32GHz overclock

/ 5 years ago

A Japanese overclocker has put the A8-3870K through its paces with the help of some liquid nitrogen cooling. He went all out on both the GPU and CPU going for the highest possible clocks, that were stable enough to post and boot. The CPU overclock was 96% taking it from a stock clock of  3GHz to 5.87GHz while the GPU clock surpassed double and went from 600MHz to 1327MHz. All of this was done with an absolutely brutal core voltage of 1.872V which probably killed the chip.

The overclocker claimed that his feat is “probably the world’s best”, though, like some of the most unstable suicide-runs, the system was too unstable to run benchmarks. The rest of the test bench include an ASUS F1A75-V Pro motherboard, G.Skill RipjawsZ memory and a Silverstone PSU.
