AM2 FX62 Overclocking Action!
I found that this FX62 was a pretty good overclocker. I haven’t had a chance to overclock it on water yet.
First I tested it on my -95C cascade, it lasted all of about 20 seconds, yes it has a cold bug, froze up around -40C
I then put it on my -30C cooler and it ran well. Nice stable speed of 3636MHz. I had to keep my HTT down because of the cold bug so I used the 18 multi, basically 202x18 using 1.58V.
The memory was running at 808MHz.

The Foxconn mobo is a pretty good board, very stable, easy to overclock, and very forgiving. I like this AM2 stuff. The CPU needs very little voltage, must be that there is no stress on the chip with the High Latency DDR2
