Intel’s Core i7 Extreme series has been winning hearts of modders and hardcore Gamers with its superb Turbo boost speeds and even overclocking.
AMD bulldozer has achieved insane 8.58Ghz using liquid nitrogen, hitting a world record. But 5.6Ghz is the best we’ve reached with Core i7. The work is done by professional overclocker Hicookie who overclocked his Core i7 3930K to 5.6GHz.
His setup was actually amazing, he used aforementioned Dippin’ Dots refrigerant. Hicookie used an Gigabyte X79 motherboard for making it possible. Gigabyte X79 is first such board to reach a multiplier of 57. Check out the video after a break:
