Abit Fatal1ty AA8XE overclocks to 4200 MHz@ 2005/04/06
Abit has "Guru" overclocking, a very user friendly Windows based overclocking tool. With a few alterations to voltages we managed to overclock a Pentium 570J CPU from its original 3800MHz to a quite impressive 4200 GHz. We cooled the motherboard with Coolermaster's aluminium based cooler and we made the board perfectly stable all the time.
We got that speed with 19 x 221 MHz and we could go even a few MHz faster but we kind of like round numbers here at the INQ. Remember AMD is about to launch its 4200+.
We managed to run 3Dmark03 and 3Dmark05 but we haven't more magnificent scores as it seems that especially 3Dmark05 is not that CPU demanding. I guess we need dual core to boost the scores but not in games as 3.2 is actually slower than 4.2, that's for sure. µ
