7174MHz 4770K On Maximus VI Extreme!

What was that about a 2V limit on Haswell CPUs? Yea ROG motherboards ignore it so extreme overclockers can do stuff like this. The 7174MHz took almost three volts (VCCIN) from the Maximus VI Extreme pulsing through that Core i7 4770K! Well done to the HKEPC + OCLab.ru comb0-team of John, 12, Mad and Smoke for having the watermelon-sized man-bits to attempt it. Validation link here. EDIT: Smoke contacted us to note that it's 3V VCCIN with just over 2V VCore voltage (so still breaking the limit), however he still pointed out that to achieve such a setting 'ROG was best'. 7174mhz
