AMD Athlon X2 7750 does fine - 2 Overclocking

Written by Eliot Kucharik

Review: Though it's no match for Intel, yet


The clock runs at 2.70GHz which is the highest of any K10 based CPU so far.

We noticed the VCore seems to be 1.3250V, which is quite high compared to other CPUs. We are not sure if this was detected correctly by the board and we could not reach anyone over the weekend. So, we tested if lower VCores are workable; and yes, they are. The CPU ran stable with 1.2000V, which will shave off some bucks on your power bill.

Overclocking in the BIOS is a piece of cake, because this is a multiplier-free Black Edition. Just increase the multiplier and there you go. With 1.3500Vcore we managed a stable 3.30GHz. We tried 3.40GHz, but 3DMark was not able to run through even increasing the VCore to 1.4500V, so we stuck it at 3.30GHz. We guess some more is manageable with AMD overclocking tool, but we would not recommend it anyway.
