    AMD FX62 AM2 Overclocking w Foxconn nF590 SLI!

    Far from smooth sailing with the extremely cold bugged CPU
    Changed out soooo many cooling methods, inserting copper plates, blocks, etc, in order to get her stabilized at ~ 3.5GHz.

    Test setup:

    AMD FX62
    Corsair 8500C5
    Foxconn nForce 590 SLI
    2 x Inno3D 7900GTX SLI

    Hmm ... nice ... pretty close to the record already =D.

    Why not Quad Sli ? hehehe ..

    And any pics of CPU ? 3.5Ghz stable dual core isn't too bad at all ...

    Im working on a few fx62's that will be like my fx60 now

    AM2 is nice, clocks the 7900gtx's throught the roof, run cool and use less power than fx60, but that cold bug
    I will not post anymore amd record stuff myself as Im done making AMD look good andf getting no returns form it.

    highest clocked fx60 in the world
    scores still stand out, but no love for MMouse, hehe

    wait for amd to go to 65ns with that onchip ddr controller and coldbugs will happen on ambeint air, hehe

    conroe/intel

    ddr controller off the cpu = perfection for the cold

    nice board hu the foxconn sham? kingpin said its great if the pc6400c3 2048 wasnt $450 USD id maybe try AM2, lol

    Lovely stuff! Hmm. Foxconn is improving nicely!

    PCIe goes any higher?

    PCIE is not a problem havent tried how high it will goo max, i tink 160+ is no problemo.
    The problem is the CPU that is so cold bugged even -10c at the "wrong" speed/htt and voltage it buggss....
    I don't think I wanna keep on turning on and off my compressor just so it will "try" to give me good clocks.

    Hi Peter,

    What mem frequency and timings are you running? I´m using the same RAM in an Epox 570SLI.
