It’s been a while since Buildzoid last posted a live OC session on his Actually Hardcore Overclocking Youtube channel. After a decent vacation, he returns this week with a full-bore extreme OC session, complete with his trademark crazy hairdo and plenty of LN2. The mission this time around is to push a newly volt-modded AMD Vega 56 card.
The full run down includes a delidded Intel Core i9 7940X which is pushed on water cooling to 4.9GHz and above using an ASRock X299 OC Formula motherboard. In terms of memory Buildzoid is using a Teamgroup T-Force Xtreem kit that promises frequencies of 3,733MHz with 12-12-12-28 timings. The Vega card itself is from Sapphire. The object of the OC session is to try and get some decent scores in 3Dmark Fire Strike. As always it’s fun to see Buildzoid go through the motions in getting his sub-zero system to optimal performance levels. Whoever said that extreme overclocking is a series of blue-screens until you get it right, will find plenty of evidence in this video.
