Looking at the testbed, there's no surprises here, so let's just get straight into the overclocking side of things to see what we could get out of the ASRock A75 Extreme6. Messing around in the BIOS, we eventually got up and running with our base clock coming in at 127MHz.
As you can see above, with our 29x multiplier that means our A8-3850 comes in at a healthy 3,679MHz or 3.68GHz as illustrated in our graphs. What was really cool about this overclock, though, was the fact we didn't need to change our memory divider from the 1866MHz DDR one. This means that our memory came in at 2030MHz DDR using the aggressive 7-9-7-24 timings.
There's not really much more that needs to be said. In our graphs today we'll be looking at the ASRock A75 Extreme6 running at stock and overclocked. For comparisons sake, we've also got our Sapphire Pure Platinum A75, GIGABYTE A75-UD4H and our ASUS M5A99X EVO which uses the Phenom II X6 1100T processors instead of the A8-3850 that are present in our other motherboards.
