AMD Phenom II 42 TWKR Black Edition Processor

Opening up the little box we discovered the hand picked AMD Phenom II 42 TWKR Black Edition processor. It's not every day you get a processor delivered to your door step that was hand picked to be an overclocking winner and will never be for sale to the public. This is every overclockers dream and we are more than willing to overclock this little guy to the max with liquid nitrogen!

Ok, did the CPU survive that pot removal? Seems to be more hype than anything though.

I haven't tested the CPU but I believe it is ok. All the pins are still intact.

Nice article! I was curious about the HT Link speed. I noticed the TWKR is running 1800mhz stock HT Link, I thought that the newer processors ran 2000mhz... I know it really doesn't matter for a limited-edition processor :)

I hate it when I pull off my heatsink and half my motherboard comes with it!

I blew up yet another power supply during my overclocking of the TWKR and Chris killed a board...

I'd say it is more like TWKR +1 Nate 0 Chris +100

Who else has ripped an AMD socket apart? :mrgreen:

Is this the processor that you guys gave away? Or is this a second one? If so, what are you doing with it?

The TWKR I used will be in my possession until I kill it, and then it will be framed next to the board I destroyed :supz:

Nate, after reading some of the initial congrats replies in the give away thread it I think it can be assumed that most of the/us site members/readers would probably prefer not to have any more Twitter contests. It was kind of fun but at the same time it kind of segregates the have time to constantly refresh people from the have no time to constantly refresh or the plain old lucky people.

Now a flat out Internet scavenger hunt would pretty sweet.
