    Little A10-6700 can also overclock! Single stage results.

    Hi guys. Just a little write-up on my latest oc. I got hold of this neat cpu for a HTPC build for a friend and obviously I had to try out it's overclocking capabilities before dooming it to a life of stock clocks and air cooling

    Now most people might think "Why?!" since the A10-6700 is a locked cpu and the 6800K would be the best choice for OC. Well simply put I was curious how far this cpu could be pushed in spite of locked max multi. Plus I've been meaning to try out The Stilts awesome piece of software, Bulldozer Conditioner which really improves x87 performance i. e. Super Pi.

    For this bench session I used the ASUS F2A85M-PRO together with Dominator Platinum 2666C10 and cooled by Little Devil rotary SS (-55 Celsius at best).



    It's a real good idea to use high powered fan on vrm when benching wprime, it gets rather hot... but mobo is great for FM2 OC.

    Still very fun to oc, especially now with the improved X87-performance. With one or more multi available I think up to 6 GHz would be ok to run 1M with this cooling. Turbo multis did only work at low fsb, like booting 105 and then raise in OS. Sadly could not raise to more than ~ 125 FSB inside OS so 150x37 was way faster.

    Thanks. I actually had real fun ocing this cpu, much more so than I've had competing in MOA2013... Just something I noticed on this platform, BBSE and PSC ram doesn't seem to play well with IMC. With BBSE I couldn't even boot stock 2133 cl8 settings without raising nb volt. Samsung HCH9 chip works a lot better. Might be something with the BIOS too of course.

    Looks like fun. GloFo has optimized the Fab process and AMD the internal architecture so it's no surprise that all of the Richland based APUs OC very well.

    The X87 optimization won't help much as it's hardly every used now days except in outdated benches.

    Thanks! I'm really satisfied with the single stage. Noisy as hell but extremely powerful and very solid build.

    Super Pi will never get obsolete!

    No I sold parts yesterday so no 3D. I'm not sure if it would have worked anyway, at least on 5800k I could not use iGPU in 3d when bclk was above 105 MHz.

    did u had DVI or HDMI? No D-sub...And must to have SATA IDE for the ebst results...But 105 is low for AHCI too with APU...
