With the release of the Venice and San Diego cores we have been on quite the overclocking spree here at AMDZone. So far we have gone through the Venice core 3500+, 3200+, and 3000+, and approached 2.8GHz with air cooling. We had already reviewed the Toledo core Athlon 64 X2 4800+ dual core, and found it would reach 2.7GHz on mid range air. Well that just wouldn't do as we decided 3GHz, a number we told AMD we would love to see released earlier this year at CES, would be a better target. That would amount to a 25% overall overclock, and 50% than our first attempt. Would it be possible on air? We thought so, but it meant an upgrade to our test bed.
