AMD Phenom II 965 Black Edition - 2 Overclocking

Written by Eliot Kucharik

Review: Too hot, too power hungry, too expensive



Here are the first CPU-Z screenshots of the 965BE. As you can see the VCore also got bumped up to quite unbelievable 1.4000V. And yes, this is a 45nm CPU.

Undervoltaging: 

For some reason AMD believes it has to use such huge voltages, but we can prove them wrong. We managed the same speed with 1.2500VCore this is a more than 10% decrease.

Overclocking:

With that huge VCore the CPU goes up to 3.70GHz without a problem, nd we expected nothing less. Of course this CPU is also limited about 3.80GHz. We managed a stable 3840MHz clock with FSB overclocking to squeeze out more performance due to HT- and memory-overclocking too.
