Intel i7-4770K Overclocked To 8GHz

Vibox: Anyone who’s into overclocking and system tweaking, brace yourself.
A video has been uploaded to Youtube which appears to show the new i7-4770K overclocked to a staggering 8GHz. In theory, the processor shouldn't be able to go this high, due to restrictions with the multiplier and base clock, however we already know that Intel have redesigned certain key parts of the CPU, so who knows? (Intel, PC hardware, Processor)

Don't try this at home kids, your CPU will melt down to China

Someone mentioned that this isnt even the highest oc. A comment on the article-site mentioned that someone got 8.8ghz with an amd cpu.

That is the sound of boiling liquid nitrogen.

If you listen carefully you can also hear the steam coming off it shown in the pick.

hurry bring the eggs
amd fx-8350 has been overclocked to 8.8ghz awhile ago
hellvaguy  +   346d ago
raw speed isn't everything. its part of why intel has been, by a wide margain, been outperforming amd for years now on the medium-high end cpu's.
never said that the amd chip was better. just stating, clock speedwise, the 8350 has been overclocked to 8.8ghz =p

you are correct however ;) Hence why i picked up a 3570k and not the 8350.

In the near future, well be needing a Dry Ice next to our PC CPU at all times.. Just to overclocked the damn computer to 10000000000000000000GHZ

Black Hole cooling, cause sucking the molecules away might be the only solution for some overclockers...
