Updated: OCed to 4200MHz on air


GameWare,
a group of Iranian gaming enthusiasts, have put AMD's Phenom II through its paces and the scores look legit.

They managed to push the Phenom II 940 Black to 4200MHz using only a Zalman 9700NT cooler. They claim to have experienced motherboard problems during the benches, and the lack of proper bios support for the new CPU put an end to their overclocking efforts. The outfit tried to overclock it on Biostar, Jeway and DFI boards, and the max score was reached on Biostar's Tforce TA790GX A2.

The OC scores in the charts were reached on an Asus M3A32-MVP Deluxe board, and the CPU ran at 3800MHz with a multiplier of x19. Core temperature was rather low, averaging around 50°C. Here's a full spec of the testbed: Asus M3A32-MVP deluxe, 2GB Corsair Dominator 1066, Force3d HD4870 X2, HDD Western Digital 500GB 16MB cache, PSU ACBEL 800 R8, Zalman 9700NT cooler.

Compared to the old Phenom 9950, the II shows promise. It averages 20-25 percent higher scores in most tests stock clocked, and oveclocked the gap widens to as much as 50 percent.

You can see the charts and some photos on www.gameware.ir and on our discussion board, here. Well done, guys.

Update:


The GameWare crew has updated their site with a few more photos and charts, you can check it out here.
