Overclocked at 7.3GHz for Intel Core i5 655K
Overclocker Duck managed to overturn the record overclocking the Core i5 655K from Intel, launching its incidence in 7307.8MHz. As we know, such frequencies are high demands on the cooling and the duck used liquid nitrogen to keep the CPU temperature low enough to function normally.
The great leap from the factory frequency of 3.2GHz to 7.3GHz was achieved by increasing the bus 221.5MHz, while the coil reached 33. The voltaz went to 2.011V. The system that became the new record-110MHz more than the previous record of Core i5 655K-contained motherboard EVGA P55 3X SLI Classified, graphics card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 to the factory frequencies and 2GB A-DATA DDR3 at 1328 MHz.
The world record in absolute terms regardless of the model still has a Celeron 347 in 65nm, who has reached unrealistic frequency of 8.2GHz. Processors to AMD, the crown keeps the Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition with a frequency of 7127MHz.
