FX to hit 8.429 GHz, besting the old record of 8.308 GHz. How well the system would actually perform under those conditions was left unexplored
So it can run 121mhz faster than last record okay.
If they LNC'd the memory + north bridge / south bridge they could have done more ?
Why the did not try remains a mystery.
Maybe they planned to fail and only reach 121mhz higher ?
I wonder if this FX also suffers from Intel cold / flu when Intel i7 reaches 18C or lower and starts to work worse than above 18C or something like that.
