AMD A10-6800K APU Overclocked to Record Breaking 8.2GHz

Evidently not content with pushing AMD’s flagship A10-6800K to just over 8.0 GHz last month, Finnish overclocker “The Stilt” has set a new world record by overclocking the Richland APU to an incredible 8203.34 MHz utilizing a liquid nitrogen cooler that provided load and idle temperatures of -180°C and -186°C at an ambient temperature of 25°C.

The overclock was achieved with a 63.0x multiplier, a remarkably low core voltage of 1.968 V, and utilized an Asus F2A85-V Pro motherboard and 8 GB of Radeon PE 1866 memory clocked at 1041 MHz with timings of 10-11-10-27.

    I find it great that he achieved that on a $130 motherboard, and not a ROG board.

    No real world benefit to a pair of fake boobs? Heh, my friend, that is an extremely naive, narrow point of view. Just because it wont enhance milk production, does not mean they don't carry an obvious benefit.
    Regardless of anyone's moral feelings on the important issue of fake breasts, this, too, isn't meant to have a "real" benefit. Nobody is implying that this is great performance hardware. It's just a record- people do all sorts of extravagantly pointless BS to be a record holder. Hello, welcome to Earth, we like novel things.

    4 adverts in a row, Tom's, what's happening?

    On-topic: Just for my peace of mind, how much can you OC a 6800K on air, without voltage tweaks?

    Just in case you wanted to super heat nitrogen...
