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?

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.
