Intel has been putting on overclocking shows at IDF for years now, and this year they featured liquid nitrogen overclocking. Two Intel engineers and GIGABYTE's in-house overclocker, Hicookie, were the speakers.
Two setups were on display, both were overclocked.
The system in a case is a Pentium Anniversary Edition and a GIGABYTE Z97X-UD5H. It was being overclocked in real-time by Intel application engineer Jayashree Bhargava, and she showed us how we could use Intel's Extreme Tuning Utility to overclock the Pentium and submit a score to HWBot.
The liquid nitrogen cooled system used a 5960X and an X99 SOC Force LN2 motherboard. Hicookie booted into Windows with a low overclock and then tuned it up with GIGABYTE's Tweak Launcher program to set the stage for his world record.
Hicookie made taking a world record look easier than booting your PC. As he pressed the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility benchmark button, he warned us that the system might crash at such high speeds, however, it never did.
The benchmark finished and he was the proud owner of the Intel XTU global world record at 2835 marks, beating the second highest score of 2789 (also using 5960X) by a comfortable margin.
