Overclocking the new Athlon II X4 chip!

Hi all,

I just wanted to post up my results for OCing the new Athlon II X4 620 chip. I purchased it last week from and received my cooler a couple of days ago. I took some time today to play with it a bit to see what I could squeeze out of it ...

Athlon II X4 620
Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 7 Rev. 2 cooler

Bus : 270MHz
Multiplier : x13
HT/NB Multiplier : x8 (default is 10)
HT/NB MHz : 2160MHz
Memory : 900MHz (x3.33)
CPU : 3.510MHz
CoreV : 1.45v

Overall I am very happy given I only took about an hour to tweak things in the BIOS. The stock speed is 2.6GHz, and I plan to get it to 3.6GHz when I have more time on Sunday.

Not bad for a $99 chip!!!
