The new FSB world record of FSB 750.92MHz from Team Indonesia?s Benny Lodewijk using a GA-EP45T-EXTREME motherboard
FSB has been the most important overclocking benchmark for over 30 years (when overclocking first began) because it is the most direct way to improve CPU performance. Achieving an FSB of 750Mhz requires outstanding tweaking skills while maintaining temperatures of -100°C on the CPU and -50°C on the North Bridge for stable operation at such high frequencies.
Team Indonesia?s FSB of 750.92Mhz resulted in a CPU speed of 3003.69MHz ? an overclock of 225% on a stock Intel E8500 CPU.
