Core i7 sees new WR at 5510MHz on Rampage II

ASUS' new Rampage II Extreme for Core i7 showed immense promise right from the get go, giving extreme overclockers and enthusiasts a flawless base with a massive array of tweaking abilities to push the platform to its limits.


A Japanese overclocker who calls himself "Duck" seems to have nailed it with his Rampage II Extreme setup, taking a Core i7 CPU to world record speeds of 5510.9MHz. The validated CPU-Z screeny below gives confirmation of his latest feat :-

This isn't the first time Duck's been in the limelight, either. Last year he pushed a Pentium IV 631 CPU to an incredible 8180.4MHz, which still remains the highest frequency to this day. I wonder how long it will take for another talented overclocking veteren to step up to the plate and try bettering this result?
