The two overclockers used their Core i7 3770K with 1.908 volts pulsating through it to reach a maximum clock speed of 7,208.19MHz - or 7.2GHz! This was achieved using a BCLK of 114.42 on a GIGABYTE Z77X-UP7 motherboard. This overclock is even more special, considering the two overclockers kept Hyper-Threading enabled, which means we have the four physical cores and four logical cores all cranking at 7.2GHz.
