5.4GHz 1M on dry ice ... not bad!
Another Thuban graces us with its presence this 7th of December – the Phenom II x6 1100T Black Edition. AMD has been churning out a lot of processors recently with some regularity, but they haven’t released a flagship replacement since the x6 1090T in late April.
Now that we have the ability to put our review processors under the ice, there is a fun new section for your reading pleasure! The first chip taken cold was a 1090T for the ASUS Crosshair IV Extreme review. So I mounted up the aptly named ‘giraffe pot’ (thanks to benching team member xoke for that) to see how the 1100T would fare.
The extreme test setup was identical to the ambient setup except for the motherboard, which was switched out for said Crosshair IV Extreme. Hey, why insulate a second board when you already have one ready to go?
