AMD Phenom II X6 memory performance confuses and astounds

Getting the most out of your system usually means quite a bit of overclocking so that a processor’s cores can chew through as much data as possible and has been the case for quite a while now but a resurgence of some fine tuning could eek out a bit more performance. AMD’s Phenom II X6 processors allow for some handy overclocking of elements outside of the processor core, such as the cache and memory controller, which can net you a sizable chunk of speed especially in programs that thrive on as much memory bandwidth as possible (gaming, compression, image manipulation) without much risk.
