Hey guys

Taking advantage of winter, I just broke 5GHz with cold air on my 1090T.

Enjoy

Very impressive, but I'm confused. Why does it say 4 cores 4 threads if its a X6?

Yes, I disabled 2 cores.

I only clocked my best core, core #1.

Disabling the worst cores can help with stability when pushing to the absolute max.

that's what I did. disabled 4 cores to get my 1055 up to 4.3 on (warm?) air - pretty sure it can go higher, I'm thinking the mobo is limiting me.
