Its not a big secret that users shouldn't expect much in the overclocking area from such a high speed processor. For this test, we replaced AMD's stock cooler with Artic Cooling's Freezer 64 Pro to get maximum results. The next step was to test and trial how high we could push our CPU. Remember to reduce the HyperTransport Multiplier from 5X to 3X. The maximum core voltage should be around 1.35V (in any case we left the 'Auto' setting). By using ASUS AiBooster we easily reached 3.10GHz, that's approximately 10% more, so there isn't much to gain from. We tried to further push the processor's speed and at 3.2GHz the system started to freeze. It's possible that with a different motherboard/cooling combination someone could get better (or worse) results.
