With a little help from our friends overseas, we were able to get our hands on one of the first retail Phenom 9600 Black Edition Processors available. For those of you that are not in the know, the “Black Edition” processors for AMD have unlocked CPU clock multipliers. Our Phenom 9600 runs at a stock clock of 2.3GHz which is 11.5X200MHz. Being "unlocked," we can change that 11.5 to almost any number we want. We heavily petitioned AMD to deliver a Black Edition Phenom CPU to enthusiasts because we think this is the only way to somewhat satiate brand loyal fans, considering the Phenom’s somewhat disappointing performance out of the gate.
