Earlier today we brought you news of AMD’s FX-8150 CPU being pushed to a staggering 8,805 MHz, but news just in is that Taiwanese overclocker “ksin” has improved upon that score and broken the 9 GHz barrier. Not only has he managed to take a photograph of the CPU running at 9144.01 MHz as seen below, but he has also managed to validate 9062.43 MHz using CPU-Z.
As before, an Asus Crosshair V Formula was employed to power the platform as well as 2x 2 GB of A-DATA DDR3 memory running at 1,343 MHz (2,686 MHz effective) and timings of 9-11-10-24. A CPU core voltage of 1.896v was used and, as the pictures below show, extreme cooling in the form of liquid nitrogen was used to keep the processor cold. Six of the eight cores were disabled, leaving the remaining two active. This is a common practice amongst extreme overclockers, as some cores will be stronger (capable of running at a higher frequency) than others, and having the weaker cores enabled will lower the maximum overclock. Pictures follow below. Source — OverclockZone Forums
