Gigabyte Boasts 7.032 GHz CPU Clock Record on Ivy Bridge

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.

    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
