AMD Phenom Speeds Up to 7GHz
An over clocking event in Brazil has achieved remarkable results, with an AMD Phenom II X4 975 CPU coaxed to speeds of over 7GHz. Thanks to the liquid nitrogen-based coolant.
The quad-core chip, AMD Phenom II X4 975 CPU, was pushed to an overall speed of 7.134GHz in an Overclocking event in Brazil. The chip naturally runs at a frequency of 3.6GHz, with an 18x clock multiplier. But using a HTT frequency of 226.49MHz and a 31.4 CPU multiplier, the AMD Phenom was pushed to over 7GHz. The team from XtremeSystems Forums used an Asus Crosshair IV motherboard, with an AMD 890FX chipset and a powerful liquid nitrogen-based cooling system. It is an impressive feat, but using a liquid nitrogen for coolant are somewhat impractical for a day-to-day use.
