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.

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!

Curious, is there a theoretical maximum to overclocking? I know a ton of variables come into play here, but I'm still interested to know what people think about that.

As the clock reaches infinity, it becomes exponentially more difficult to contain the variables that affect its failure.

In other words, you are looking at the current theoretical maximum.

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.
I am post count 3. I was pointing out the redundancy with out being direct about it. I was showing the redundancy not saying there is one.

When I read "I am post count 3", I read it in my head as Edward Norton in Fight Club.

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.
Thanks You, I'm on it :D
