The Rampage II Extreme motherboard utilizes a TweakIt tool that resembles joystick like control on the motherboard. This tool enables users to make real time changes to their system´s core frequency, voltage as well as other parameters. All these changes are hardware parameter changes and is not software dependent.

The hardware tweaking is accompanied by real-time monitoring of information such as system frequency, that lets users implement on-the-fly modifications during CPU testing to archive high benchmark performance.

AMD decided to takes things in its own hands during an event in Austin, Texas. It took the unreleased Phenom II, based on the quad-core Deneb architecture, and slapped a pot suitable for exotic on it. After lowering the temperature to -185°C and raising the voltage to somewhere north of 1.9V the processor was able to move north of 6GHz.
