Crazy Czech’s at Hitpoint.cz have managed to crack the magic 8GHz mark on an FX-8350 and Crosshair V Formula-Z. Great going guys! Not only that, they were also having fun with Quake 3 for 90 minutes at 6GHz with the chip happily running at 1.8V on all eight cores!
The effort to get to 8GHz required a 266MHz HTT x 30 multiplier with 1.95V applied to the FX-8350, with G.Skill TridentX 2,666 MHz memory and a Seasonic Platinum 1000W. The team found cores 0+1 were limited to just 7.5GHz, while 3+4 would reach the 8GHz mark.
