70 liters of liquid nitrogen works wonders.
By adding LN2 and tweaking memory settings, I brought AMD’s Ryzen 9 3900XT up to a record-setting 5.7-GHz. Here’s how.
Welcome to the Core i9-9900KF. Yes, this is not a typo. The eight-core 16-thread Core i9-9900KF is the newest mainstream processor from Team Intel. And versus the 9900K, it may overclock better.
This specially-binned chip got as quick as 6.95 GHz on all of its cores or over 7-GHz on a single core.
We take AMD's unreleased 12-core 24-thread Ryzen 9 3900 our for a spin, setting a few world records with the 65W chip.
If you want to hit the advertised boost clock on your third-gen Ryzen chip, great cooling could not be enough.
A persistent bug in Windows 10 means that 3rd Gen Ryzen chips could give inaccurately high or low test scores.
With the right motherboard and cooling, Intel's first unlocked workstation-class processor can go well beyond its 3.8-GHz rated boost speed.
Top-ranked overclocker Allen “Splave” Golibersuch explains how he breaks records and why you should care, even if you aren’t going to pour LN2 on your CPU.
