AMD Athlon X4-845 Carrizo Processor Review
John Williamson / 5 years ago
Sadly, the overclocking headroom is severely limited due to a locked multiplier and you can only make small BCLK adjustments. Even when using an extreme cooling solution, I hit a peak of 106MHz and couldn’t go past this point. This was the case when I applied more voltage and attempted to stabilise the memory controller. Please note, the voltage reading at stock is higher than Kaveri processors which may inhibit the overclocking somewhat. Honestly, it should be fairly straight-forward to reach 4.0GHz, but beyond that, you’re going to encounter memory stability problems.
