[Techpowerup.com] Phenom II X4 Sets New 3DMark06 World Record

In yet another overclocking feat using AMD's Phenom II series processors, Team Finland set a new 3DMark06 world-record score of 35,698 3DMarks. The team consisted of renowned overclockers Petri "SF3D" Korhonen Sampsa Kurri and Sami "macci" Mäkinen. The team used AMD's DDR3-supportive AM3 platform and used high-performance DDR3 memory to demonstrate its overclocking capabilities. The bench consisted of:
  • AMD Phenom II X4 6187MHz (4500MHz NB) under Dragon F1EE pot, liquid nitrogen cooling
  • ASUS M4A79T Deluxe (790FX chipset)
  • Corsair XMS3-2133 2x1GB DDR3-1800 CL7-7-7-1T
  • 2x Radeon HD 4870 X2 830/950MHz with stock cooling
  • Thermaltake Toughpower 1200W
As NordicHardware notes, for the first time in ages, an AMD-platform topped 3DMark06 Hall of Fame, crossing the previous record holder by 150 3DMarks. Validations of the score can be found here. A video of the feat has been posted on YouTube, and can be viewed here.
