To overclock we first attempted to use the ASRock Extreme Tuning Utility, but didn’t find this to work, so we just booted up the BIOS and did a simple overclock from 3.3GHz to 3.8GHz by adjusting the CPU Frequency from 200MHz to 230MHz, I’m sure this board could handle more, but I didn’t want to push it. Here are our CPU-Z results from stock to overclocked.
Again, here’s out testing system:
Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1100T
Motherboard: ASRock 890FX Deluxe5 Motherboard
Memory: Patriot G-Series 4GB DDR3 12800 1600MHz AMD RAM
Graphics: Sapphire HD 5830 Xtreme 1GB Video Card
SSD: G.Skill Phoenix Pro 40GB SSD
HDD: Samsung 750GB SATA II
Optical: ASUS BW-12B1LT Blue Ray Burner
Case: NZXT Source 210 Elite Case
CPU Cooling: Cooler Master Gemin II S525 CPU Cooler
The ASRock 890FX Deluxe5 will be run through a variety of tests on both the stock and overclocked speeds, 3.3GHz and 3.8GHz respectively.
We have our benchmarks divided into 4 different categories.
