Phenom II 955 BE Proving Grounds

AMD has posted a video on YouTube of their Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition being overclocked on air, dry ice and Liquid Nitrogen. The processor is overclocked by Chew*.

Chew* spent three weeks tirelessly overclocking stock AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE processors and recently published his results spanning air, phase, dry ice, and liquid nitrogen. He pushes DDR3 and the extraordinary north bridge of the 955 to the limit. The stock 955 has tremendous north bridge scaling potential and achieved overclocks at significantly lower voltages than prior processor models. Gigabyte and OCZ provided additional support.
