Gigabyte's Z77X-UP7 used by HiCookie to reach new Ivy Bridge world record: 7.112GHz!

HiCookie uses Gigabyte's awesome Z77X-UP7 motherboard and smashes world record OC with IVB CPU: 7.11

Gigabyte did promise some amazing things with their latest motherboard, the Z77X-UP7 and now they're being delivered. OC genius HiCookie has pushed a Core i7 3770K to 7.112GHz!

 

 

Yes, you read that right, over 7GHz on this Z77X-UP7 board. There's even a video to prove it, above. The overclock was achieved using some LN2, but we know that an overclock this high wouldn't be possible without the use of that type of exotic cooling.

What do you think of this news? 7.112GHz is an impressive thing to see, and considering the board is pretty fresh out of Gigabyte's oven, we should expect more things out of the Z77X-UP7 in the near future!
