Default AMD's Quad-Core Phenom II Chip Overclocked to 7.344GHz

An overclocker has managed to rather substantially increase the world's frequency record for Advanced Micro Devices' central processing units (CPU) at an overclocking contest hosted by Gigabyte Technologies, one of the largest makers of mainboards.

Utilizing Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD7 mainboard, the overclocker who calls himself Mad222 from Hong Kong managed to overclock AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition processor (3.40GHz) to whopping 7344.48MHz. The computer performance enthusiast used dry ice for cooling. The mainboard was not modified, according to the overclocking.

Based on the "hall of fame" of validated CPU-Z overclocking records, Mad222 substantially increased the overclocking bar for any AMD microprocessor with 7344.48MHz clock-speed as the others are rather substantially behind the leader with 7217.81MHz (Phenom II X4 955), 7153.89MHz (Phenom II X4 955), 7140.39MHz (Phenom II X4 955) and 7127.85MHz (Phenom II X4 955). Gigabyte also claims that two other overclockers, who participated in the contest and used Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD7 mainboards managed to hit 7182.04MHz and 7168.7MHz clock-speeds.
