Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I just ordered this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125500

and i was wondering if it comes factory overclocked. Many Reviews say it does and some say it doesnt.

Yes. Hence the "OC" in the title.

Well in some Reviews they mention that the OC Guru II is what they use to overclock it so i got confused whether it came overclocked or not. Thanks

There's almost always headroom for bigger overclocks than what leaves the factory, hence the use of software.

OC edition means its clocked higher by default out of the box than the speed which the reference model from AMD runs at. The overclocking software lets you turn the dials up even higher.

Just compare the core clock to a reference 290. 1040Mhz vs 947Mhz
