Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
AMD Phenom X3 8750 Review  - AMD Phenom X3 8750 Review
Thu, April 24 2008 | 4:49AM | PermaLink Feedback?
"Overclocking the AMD Phenom X3 8750 was a task. I tried everything I could to push this processor, but it just would not budge. I dropped the HT multiplier to 7x and increased the voltage to 1.4v and still could not get the HT bus to go beyond 215MHz, no matter what. Anything beyond 215MHz would cause the board to lock up and blue screen seconds after booting into Windows. As everyone knows, AMD processors are not good overclockers and since the Phenom X3 has a locked maximum multiplier of 12x, there is was hope to push it much further."
