Gigabyte Boasts 7.032 GHz CPU Clock Record on Ivy Bridge

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 50 comments

Overclocker HiCookie pushes two Gigabyte Z77X motherboards to World Records with the help of an Intel Core i7-3770K and GSkill Trident X Memory.

In our recent overclocking review of the Core i7-3770K, we showed what Ivy Bridge can do on air and its limitations compared to previous Sandy Bridge CPUs. Gigabyte, with the help of overclocker HiCookie, set out to show what the Core i7-3770K can do on liquid nitrogen cooling and Gigabyte motherboards. HiCookie was able to surpass the 7.0 GHz milestone using a Core i7 3770K processor, while pushing the Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H motherboard to a fully validated 7.032 GHz using liquid nitrogen cooling. This is regarded as the current highest Ivy Bridge CPU frequency and a world record according to global overclocking website HWBot.org.

In addition, HiCookie has broken the current highest memory speed for the Intel Ivy Bridge platform, reaching 3280MHz, with all four memory slots populated using a GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboard and G.Skill Trident X DDR3-2800 memory.

    Before you know it, this will be everyday speeds.

    sirencallI remember 5ghz was ground breaking speeds that needed liquid nitrogen to keep cool....lol its only gonna get crazier

    depends on when we make the switch from silicon to graphene or something else like it we keep hearing about.

    You're unlicky if you go LN2 and get -100.
    gmandude89i bet this ivyfail still reached 80c with liquid nitrogen

    2 days late. Broken by Andre Yang on a Maximus V Gene the 31st.

    I know it is cool and all but there is no practical use for this. I don't know why this stuff is in the news. They only test for a minute. Now if you can run programs for about 8 hours with that speed, that would be more interesting.

    Not unless there is a major change in semiconductor technology.

    It been a decade since we've seen the first 3GHz processors and true 4GHz processors have only just arrived in the market.

    Clock speeds are not the future. More cores and more efficient designs are the way forward.

    and yet for a casual user we dont need that much thanks to slow development on software industry for common software. We have yet to see a software industry start include AI processing to assist user.

    Pretty impressive. Clock for clock this would beat the pants off the Bulldozer chips that hit 8+GHz

    Lol, noob. This is a suicide overclock, for the world record, not for your pratical BS.

    GTFO from this site. This is EXACTLY the kind of news wanted here, not some "practical" bullshit about Apple or office apps.

    You know those racecar events, or NFL football games, or NBA basketball games? Useless if you're looking for practical usefulness, but they are enjoying to watch.

    But if you're stubborn, I'd like for you to tell a large group of football fanatics that football is useless. Preferably if they were recently hit with the news that their favorite team got steamrolled.

    I wonder how a i7 3770K would do with a decent watercooling loop ...

    Maybe someone has a link ?
