AMD A8-3870K BE overclocked to 5.8Ghz

A guy from Japan managed to squeeze the AMD A8-3870K Black Edition processor to the last drop and make it scream.

The guy overclocked the CPU up to 96% of its standard clock speed, and the GPU OCed 121% of its base clock speed, the results are 5,875 MHz for the AMD A8-3870K Black Edition with a base clock speed of 125 MHz multiplied by 47.0x and for the integrated GPU it reach 1,327 MHz from its default 600 MHz all that was done with a CPU voltage set to an aggressive 1.872V !

The system was too unstable to run any benchmarks, the motherboard used was an ASUS F1A75-V Pro motherboard, G.Skill RipjawsZ memory and a lot of Liquid Nitrogen LN2 to cool the CPU down, check pictures :
