Initial Setting: 3.3–3.9 GHz
Load with two cores: 3.9 GHz maximum clock rate.
Load with four cores: 3.7 GHz maximum clock rate.
Load with all six cores: 3.6 GHz maximum clock rate.
Overclocking Results: 3.3-4.7 GHz
Load with two cores: Sustained 4.7 GHz maximum clock rate possible.
Load with 4 cores: 4.6 GHz possible.
With 6 cores a 4.5 GHz is the maximum for sustained, stable operation.
