Hi guys. Just a little write-up on my latest oc. I got hold of this neat cpu for a HTPC build for a friend and obviously I had to try out it's overclocking capabilities before dooming it to a life of stock clocks and air cooling Now most people might think "Why?!" since the A10-6700 is a locked cpu and the 6800K would be the best choice for OC. Well simply put I was curious how far this cpu could be pushed in spite of locked max multi. Plus I've been meaning to try out The Stilts awesome piece of software, Bulldozer Conditioner which really improves x87 performance i. e. Super Pi. For this bench session I used the ASUS F2A85M-PRO together with Dominator Platinum 2666C10 and cooled by Little Devil rotary SS (-55 Celsius at best). It's a real good idea to use high powered fan on vrm when benching wprime, it gets rather hot... but mobo is great for FM2 OC.

With one or more multi available I think up to 6 GHz would be ok to run 1M with this cooling. Turbo multis did only work at low fsb, like booting 105 and then raise in OS. Sadly could not raise to more than ~ 125 FSB inside OS so 150x37 was way faster.
