It seems overclockers climbed another peak, according to Coolaler Zone. This time it was AMD Athlon 64 FX53 processor operating at 3007MHz (13.5x228MHz) at 1.76V. The peak was actually at 3083MHz, but the system became unstable. 3DMark03 used in tests "gave up" already at 2.89GHz. During the experiment PC3200 memory clock speed was increased to 466MHz.

This is the testbed:

  • ASUS SK8N motherboard, BIOS 1004m nForce3 drivers
  • 2 x 512MB Corsair DDR400 SDRAM modules on Winbond CH-5 chips, 6-2-3-2 timings, 2.7V voltage
  • ATI RADEON 9800XT graphics card, Catalyst 3.1 (500/411) driver
