AMD FX 8150 overclocked to 8.80 GHz

Recently a Thai overclocker "ksin" guy managed to push the 32nm "Zambezi" AMD FX 8150 CPU to a whooping clock speed up to 8805.64 MHz, this confirm that the FX series from AMD are more friendly to high clock speed even with it's high heats.

So the guy set a new record with this achievement but sadly the validation was rejected from CPU-Z because of the because of the unrevealed cooling technique used., using a nice configuration, for base clock speed of 303.29 MHz and multiplier of 29.0x and feeding the CPU core with a 1.86V, the motherboard is an ASUS Crosshair V Formula and 4 GB (2x 2 GB) of ADATA-made DDR3 memory running @ only 1417Mhz.
