The a10 can handle 4Ghz at1.3v with no problems
It almost always runs overvolted
Posted by: reik019
My specimen gets up to 92 degrees under full load, 64 while just sitting idle on default settings (3.9GHz, 4.1GHz turbo, 866MHz graphics clock, default voltage up to 1.48V), but when I set 4.1GHz as the normal (non turbo, as I disabled it to avoid unstability) max CPU speed and the Graphics clock to 1.0GHz (opposed to 866MHz) it runs at a max temp of 83 degrees under full load (Graphics + CPU) and a minimum of 45 degrees when sitting idle, all of this without performance loss and without tweaking voltage.
On most cases this CPU runs overvolted, I remember seeing a guy that overclocked this specific CPU up to 4.7GHz without changing the voltage at all, and without performance loss.
Note that my temps were taken when using the stock heatsink and a open pc case, ambient temps were 28 degrees.
