7700K overclocked to 7GHz, just 2 cores enabled on LN2

Intel's new Kaby Lake-based Core i7-7700K hits 7GHz on LN2, but just 2 of its cores were enabled

Intel are just days away from making their new Core i7-7700K processor and entire Kaby Lake family of CPUs official, but before that we're seeing the 7700K hit 7GHz.




Before you pull out the celebration play list on Spotify, the 7700K was cooled by LN2, and the chip was reduced to just 2 cores. Oh, and it was thirsty for power requiring 2V of power.


Intel and AMD have a massive CES ahead of them next week, but a 7700K at 7GHz does sound delicious. Now give me that with all cores enabled, less power consumption, and an AIO cooler that keeps it cool enough and I'm happy.
