Nick Shih hits 7.93GHz With AMD A10-5800K Overclocked To 7.93GHz

The most talented overclocker in the world, Nick Shih breaks another record. Well, actually it's more likely the other way around. World record breaker Nick Shih overclocks again! This time he has reached an unearthly 7930.69 MHz with the new socket FM2 APU and ASRock's FM2A85X Extreme6 motherboard, which places him numero uno on HWBOT again.

"I absolutely love having fun with some of the best gizmos around, such as the new socket FM2 APUs and ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6. You can always expect amazing results when you are dealing with these reliable hardware. For me, 7.93 GHz is merely a warm up. 8 GHz ready or not, here I come!" exclaimed the much excited Nick Shih.

Above: Proof and detailed information of the new world record captured by CPU-Z. A phenomenal 7930.69 MHz by an AMD A10-5800K APU and ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 motherboard! (http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2610689)

The FM2A85X Extreme6 from ASRock is heavily armed with Premium Gold Caps, Digi Power and 8+2 Power Phase. The robust design and performance makes it the perfect weapon for overclocking and challenging world records. Sadly, breaking world records like Nick Shih isn't something that Tom, Dick or Harry can do whenever or wherever they want to. But with ASRock's FM2 Series motherboards you could at least overclock like the legend himself! With the exclusive X-boost technology which comes with every ASRock FM2 Series motherboard, users may overclock and boost their system's performance up to 15.77% simply by clicking X during POST.

By taking the number one spot on HWBOT's A10-5800K CPU frequency ranking list, ASRock FM2 Series demonstrates its solid quality and overwhelming performance once again. Overclocking? You'd better choose ASRock!

What ghz was it?

What makes this Nick the best overclocker? I would think that with the same hardware, some of our more knowledgeable members here could get the about the same results.

Mmmmm, 4 cores. Only an assassin OCs with all of their cores enabled on LN2. Maybe he's really a samari in desguise. :p

LOL, perhaps a rare couple could...but 99% couldnt do it. Hell, I bench DI/LN2 and with the same HW I doubt I could do it (not that Im a great overclocker, just saying I have experience in it).
I would assume financing.
He had mad skillz before he hooked up with Asrock. ;)

Only 1.4xV vCore? How so? :confused:

VERY nice clocking anyways! Congratulations :rockout:

The rise of the APUs is near :)

The video shows 6.8GHZ, probably because it is not under load.

AMD isnt my bag so I could be off here, but most people when overclocking like that do not use any kind of turbo, so I think that may have just been a filler ss... that or like I said I have no idea what Im talking about in AMD. :slap: :D

PS - Dont get offended I used the slap smiley with the big grin on myself.....hahahahhahahaha!

Thanks.

Is that vCore reading legit or a glitch? If it's legit I think that is the best part of this achievement :o

I think a glitch, as in the vid, at 6.8GHz, its 1.9v.

In my country, a couple is two.

Further, and this will be the last thing I say about this, him asking what gigahertz it was was nonsensical. Those numbers are the same, and the numbers throughout the original post make it clear it was 7.93. So no, no one said anything about it being redundant.

Also, I'm not upset about your comment. I'm simply pointing out the fact that you were wrong on both counts.

Looks like you quoted "post 3"... so am I wrong :p (to be fair, I originally had a couple but changed it to post 3 after I confirmed but since you caught the post 3........hahaha!)? That person was poking at the redundancy of it. Must have been lost in translation - pretty obvious to me. :p

That out of the way, if we both have nothing to say on this chip, perhaps its best we move on from your post just chiding the title. :)

Technically I quoted post 19, but from a less prudent place it looks like I quoted post 3; in that way, you got me. :)
