AMD Phenom 9850 X4 Quad Core Processor with B3 Stepping

AMD Phenom

CPU-Z 1.44.2

Here CPU-Z clearly shows our initial default clock speed, multiplier and bus speed correctly, as well as the motherboard, bios revision, and single stick of DDR2 2048 MBytes of ram timings used during our testing. You can see that the core is correctly identified as the AMD Phenom 9850 Socket AM2+ (940), 65 nm with the B3 stepping.

The next CPU-Z images shows the results of our overclocking the system to our highest push at Techware Labs using the GlacialTech Igloo 5710 Silent Heatsink/Fan all the way to 3.10GHz. It's unfortunate that we were unable to add more voltage to the cpu, due to motherboard bios limitations, to stabilize the overclock as we believe that we might have been able to not only conduct most if not all of our tests at 3.10GHz, but perhaps even higher if we could have also cooled the processor better than with just a heatsink and fan, such as a TEC cooled HSF or TEC watercooled unit.

Our final CPU-Z image shows where we ultimately had the cpu set-to for our tests while the cpu was overclocked.
