AMD A10-5800K Hits 7.38 GHz on MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 Motherboard

MSI, a world leader in overclocking graphics cards and mainboards is pleased to announce that their brand new FM2-A85XA-G65 has just set a stunning new world-record CPU speed for AMD's new A10 APUs. Featuring MSI's new DigitALL power design with Military Class III components, the FM2-A85XA-G65 was able to smash the current limit and set an astonishing 7.384 GHz clock speed. This all was made possible with high-tech liquid nitrogen cooling of MSI's the newly released processor from AMD and outstanding engineering work on the FM2-A85XA-G65 mainboard.


Trinity shines on the best platform

AMD's new Trinity APU is a powerful solution that combines excellent CPU performance with unprecedented integrated GPU performance. MSI's FM2-A85XA-G65 is the excellent companion for AMD's new series of APUs as it combines great performance features with a keen eye on game performance. With the push of a button, OC Genie II will boost your APU's processing power to 4.2 GHz, overclocks the GPU and memory as well. Graphics performance is boosted with both AMD CrossFire and Dual Graphics.

7.38 GHz

With a nearly 7400 MHz CPU speed, the MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 clearly separates itself from other FM2 mainboards by providing more CPU speed. This can be attributed by the use of higher quality components, external clock generator and support for both AMP and XMP overclocked memory.

You missed the point. 7.38 is sooo not important. The super seriously important information is that this overclock was achieved on a msi board.

Again I get it - woo! something functionally useless ran really fast for a very short time in an utterly unsustainable environment, and does not in any way represent how the equipment will or ever even COULD actually perform in the real world.

Like land speed testing a rocket car - yay it went fast - it's still completely useless...

Now this is just the plain truth. Big Deal can it play crysis! Useless! More FLUFF from AMD

You mean the MSI board didn't blow up when running stock? I am shocked!!!


:eek:

Higher quality ocmponents..you mean better APU. :p for shame, for shame.

And yes, I have pictures of one that blew up at stock. So, you either get world records...or they blow up and catch fire. Great.:p

And I was going to buy the Biostar board from the 7317mhz run. Now changing to MSI so I can achieve 7338mhz. Additional 21mhz for the Win!

GL with that. Probably took them a couple dozen tries to get it to boot and post results. They were probably walking it up by the Hz.

If I came across as MSI hating, it was unintentional. My motherboard happens to be msi. The reason I made my post was the point made in the the quote below.

I don't hate MSI products...I really like the Z77 MPower board. It'd be nice if I had some lightning cards to go in it, and the matching ram, and that kinda sucks, but otherwise, MSI has grown up a lot, in terms of quality and offered features.


However, I do have pics, as I mentioned earlier. :p

Can your MSI board that captian cocky?
Where is the validation link with your name on it, Admiral Vajjy?

Thanks, I reported those invalid submissions to HWBOT :laugh:

Example of valid HWBOT submission (includes picture of cooling method per league rules).

The only valid submission above mine on air is also an MSI, as are the next two below mine :laugh:

If I wanted an underperforming POS chip I would buy a pentium 4. Until then you can continue to run you FX4100 at 5ghz until the cows come home, my phenom at 4.2ghz will continue to perform better in all applications.

They are only invalid in league. While you are flagging results might want to start down everything I have seeing how I was a member LONG before they added those stupid rules...
