If you thought the previous attempt at overclocking Intel's just-released Core i7-5960X was good, hitting 6.2GHz, HiCookie's achievement is a little better, hitting 6.45GHz.
HiCookie used GIGABYTE's X99 SOC Force motherboard to hit the massive milestone, with 6451.88MHz to be exact. He disabled most of the 16 threads on the CPU, down to just two cores. Windows XP Professional was his OS of choice to get the record, with 1.847V being used, and a single stick of DDR4 memory.
