Intel's new Core i9-7900X has been on the market for just a few weeks, but it has already been pushed to world record heights of 6.01GHz on liquid nitrogen, setting a new 10-core CPU and highest ever single processor world record. The hardware used:
- Intel Core i9-7900X
- G.Skill Trident Z
- 120 GB Neutron SSD
- GIGABYTE X299 SOC Champion
- Corsair AX 1500i PSU
- Liquid Nitrogen
SOFOS1990 is no stranger to breaking OC world records, hitting 6016MHz at 1.6V on the 10C/20T processor at a super-cold -110C (-116F). Sofos used GIGABYTE's Aorus X299 SOC Champion motherboard, alongside the enthusiast grade Corsair AX1500i PSU.
1.6V is pretty damn high for voltage, and no processor will withstand that for hours on end let alone daily use. For overclocking purposes, it's fine - but that's where the super-chilly LN2 comes into play.
