Phenom X4 9850 Black Edition overclocked to 3.3 GHz on air04.06.2019
Cheerless, in their bulk, Phenom X4 9850 Black Edition processor overclocking statistics (2.5 GHz) only occasionally diluted results with a frequency above 3.0 GHz. For example, when using a liquid cooling at a frequency of 3.5 GHz was possible to pass validation CPU-Z, and at a frequency of 3.2 GHz processor preserved stability in applications that work with three-dimensional graphics.
Some sources have expressed hope for an improvement in the frequency potential of 65 nm Phenom X4 processors, although the model 9950 with a frequency of 2.6 GHz, has all chances to become the last representative of the technical process and further improvement in the frequency potential will be brought only 45 nm processors. However, hope really is - colleagues Matbe site, for example, managed to overclock the Phenom X4 9850 Black Edition to the frequency of 3.2 GHz with vcore 1.33, and to a frequency of 3.3 GHz with vcore 1.35 V.
It would seem that this result is not surprising, because as a "burden" a validation procedure is used in the base CPU-Z data, but there is a small nuance ... The processor is cooled by air cooler Zalman CNPS9500! Of course, we do not know at what frequency the processor is able to work under these conditions, under load, but progress in the overclocking Phenom B3 stepping processors with air cooling there.
