Core 2 just shy of 6 GHz!

World record result

| Posted: Aug 20, 2007 1:53 am

Fwoar, this is damn impressive stuff right here. A swedish overclocker by the name of "elmor" has been giving his Core 2 Extreme X6800 chip a real beating recently, earning himself the #1 spot for the highest clocked Core 2 chip to date.


Using a modded ASUS P5W64 WS Pro, 2x1GB Mushkin XP2-8500 modules (running 1:1 w/ timings of 3-3-3-5), S3 Trio64+ PCI graphics card (err - helps for high CPU clocks?), all powered off a Silverstone Zeus 850W PSU, he ended up pushing his X6800 to 418x14. That's 5854 MHz!


Nordic Hardware have the full scoop.


The by now well-known Swedish overclocker Jon "elmor" Sandström has been locked up in his overclocking bunker once again, and this time he's came up with something that impresses in another way than just 3DMark points. Although you might say that benching 3D is the ultimate way of judging how good a system is, we just can't let this past us, even though it's "only" related to maximum frequencies on CPU.
