Overclocker UK’s in-house hardware guru, 8 Pack, has put together his Matrix R9 290X review, from the perspective of an extreme overclocker.

It was a packed event with plenty of cosplay action, at the recent OGIC 4 gaming festival in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. See the video and huge gallery inside!
Following in Andre Yang’s footsteps, a team of Russian overclockers (Smoke, 12, slamms, Ananerbe, Atheros, IceAlex) have pushed an AMD FX processor over 8GHz on a Crosshair V Formula-Z!
See that and more pro-OC action in their video above.
It’s like he never takes a day off! 8 Pack has just broken the Cinebench world record for a 4-core chip, with a 6.37GHz i7 4770K on a Maximus VI Extreme.
Team Russia crushed the RealBench 2 first place result, posting a score of 127,120 – around 5,000 more than second place Dew.
Slamms achieved it with an LN2 cooled i7-4960X at 5.6GHz and ~2.4GHz CL8 DDR3 in a Rampage IV Black Edition, along with two GTX 780 Ti.
Watch the result happen, in the video above.
Team Russia has fired up its Rampage IV Black Edition and i7-4960X again to push it through our RealBench app! With an LN2 cooling, the CPU reached an extreme of 5.6GHz (131×43). The team are only one of two people to break the 120k barrier so far! See their result submission for more details on the system, and the video below to follow how they did it.
It’s a good job he’s well chilled because 8 Pack has been on fire with records recently. This time he’s achieved SLI world records in Vantage, Firestrike Xtreme and Catzilla with two GTX 780 Ti DirectCU II in SLI on a Rampage IV Black Edition.
