First leaked overclocking result of the new Piledriver CPU?
AMD's next-generation FX series processors may be just around the corner, but OC feats around its flagship model, the FX-8350, are already beginning to take shape. Chinese overclocker Ma Yuchuan (马宇川) achieved 7.443 GHz with the FX-8350, except with just one of its four modules enabled (two cores). The clock speed of 7443 MHz was set with a base clock of 244.3 MHz, and multiplier of 30.5X. A core voltage of 1.968V was used, and the chip was cooled with liquid nitrogen. 8 GB of dual-channel DDR3-1600 MHz memory by Patriot was used, and seating it all was Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 motherboard. Find the CPUID validation here. The feat still trails Andre Yang's 8.71 GHz on FX-8150. That's not to say that the FX-8350 isn't as good a chip with overclocking, not enough enthusiasts have their hands on it, yet.
