6GHz barrier broken with DFI

| Posted: Nov 3, 2004 3:29 am

World reknowned overclocker "Fugger" breaks yet another record in his on-going overclocking extremities. This time he gets a hold of DFI's recently released LANParty 875P-T motherboard, chucks his 3.6 GHz Pentium 4 (LGA 775) processor into it, and makes his way right up past the 6GHz mark, 6.3GHz to be exact, and with an absolutely STAGGERING 1800mhz FSB (450mhz x 4). This works out to be a whopping 75% overclock from an already ultra high clocked chip! The word "insane" just doesn't cut it here. Further details within DFI's press release here, and more info on how the magic 6 was broken over at Fugger's regular hangout, the XtremeSystems forums.


Fugger's latest achievement puts him 300 MHz+ ahead of the next overclocker. At a core speed of 6.3 GHz, his overclocked Pentium 4 560 processor had a front bus speed (FSB) of 1800 MHz. Fugger's record-breaking system setup includes:


- DFI LANParty 875P-T motherboard (350 MHz FSB)
- Intel Pentium 4 560 (3.6GHz) processor (cooled to -121°C)
- Centon Advanced DDR memory (Samsung TCCD)
- OCZ DDR Booster
- Chilly1 Three-Stage CPU Cascade
