1) i7-3770K CPU Frequency World Record
Andre, TeamRU, Smoke, with assistance from Hazzan, Shamino and a boat-load of Liquid Helium cracked the i7-3770K CPU frequency world record at 7184.3MHz! See the validation below. Supporting hardware included the Maximus V Extreme, G.Skill DDR3, an Antec HCP 1200W PSU and Kingston SSD.

That’s not all though, because other world records broken include:

2) SuperPi 1M: 5.094s
Within a hairs width of hitting sub-5 seconds! 7.043GHz and G.Skill DDR3 at 2.683GHz CL6

3) SuperPi 32M: 4 minutes 43 seconds

4) PiFast: 10.16 seconds

Good job! :cool:

Does the liquid helium makes a difference over the LN2? Or it's just about availability? At what temps was that 3770k running during those tests?

Well, your a great photographer!

I congrats you for that :P

inquiry!

just wanna know why 3770k is listed as 1 core, 1 thread :)

Because the highest OCs you can achieve with one core and no HT... think about it, less cores = less heat = more stability

thanks for clarifying z, i always learn a thing or two here @rog.forums :D

I'm a lil confused, I thought the FX 8150 held the world record @ 8.429GHz as per http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1705/1/

This is the highest 3770K CPU-Z

So, the thing is that it's true, the FX-8150 reached highest frequency than the i7-3770k did... but the frequency is not everything...

Check this small comparison from HWBOT:

12227

Even though the 8150 has higher frequency, the 3770k is calculating faster... :)

It's the highest on the 3770K/Z77 platform. :)

LHe is a lot colder than LN2. Liquid Nitrogen is <-195.8 C...Liquid Helium is < -269 C...about twice as cold on the Kelvin scale.

The 3770K benches higher because of Intel's floating-point lead over AMD. Don't want to start a flame war, but when FLOPs matter, it is Intel all the way.

Over -200C, probably about -220 to -230, but we don't know because the thermometer stops at -200.

Awesome video! Thank you! :o I love those extreme OC vids...they are just fun to watch.

"LHe is a lot colder than LN2. Liquid Nitrogen is <-195.8 C...Liquid Helium is < -269 C...about twice as cold on the Kelvin scale."

Yeah, I know that... actually I was curious about the 3770k's temps during testing... - you know, the coolant is cold, but the CPU itself, specially the cores should be warmer...

"Over -200C, probably about -220 to -230, but we don't know because the thermometer stops at -200."

But this seems to suggest that it was below -200C... WOW, that's very cold!

I guess I should read the Topic more more carefully. Sorry
