Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news of record-breaking overclocking that occurred during CES. Discuss here if you've ever experimented with overclocking, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Well that was a fluff article. The only way it could have been fluffier is if it had kittens and puppies. Was the record pure speed, or greatest % above factory specs? What technique was involved? Was liquid nitrogen used? Did the teams have a puppy as a mascot? Did the kittens wear proper lab attire? We'll never know.

Yeah, the article is kinda pointless without providing the actual overclocking results. I found that it was an Intel 4770K at 6.4GHz on liquid nitrogen.


Personally, I learned how to overclock back in the Pentium 1/K6-2/socket 7 days & have overclocked every system I've owned since.

Like riider...if I could and can, I did and do. Nothing wrong with free speed and nothing wrong with improving processing power.

I've heard of people hitting 7Ghz on an FX-series somewhere. I'll probably dig it up, but he disabled 6 of the 8 cores so he was hitting 7-8Ghz on only 2 cores. So unless that 6Ghz was with all cores enabled and without Liquid nitro then it's not really that amazing.

EDIT: It's the all time record on CPUZ Validation page: http://valid.canardpc.com/lpza4n Almost 9Ghz!
