Default Athlon 64 FX55 San Diego Core Prometia Mach II Overclocking

AMD quietly updated the FX55 to a San Diego core a couple of months ago. With this core an improved 90nm process, SSE3, and tweaks to the memory controller were added. We quickly tested the overclocking ability of this new FX with high end air. We were able to reach 3.1GHz, but had to fall back to 3GHz for benchmarking. Now we add another tool to our overclocking arsenal as we utilize the Prometia Mach II phase change cooler to bring the CPU down to negative 40 degrees Celcius. Our goal is to push the CPU to new heights, and get the highest clock benchmarks we can.

From the very slow to the very fast mem timing at 1T, there is not much a difference in Superpi outcome ... ~ 1 big second at 1M and same clock speed; as long as mem at >200 MHz
