Intel Core i7 4960X Extreme Edition Processor Overclocked at 5.85GHz


Some of the best overclocking enthusiasts on the planet came on Tuesday evening at the Over Clocking Main Event sponsored by ASUS, Corsair Memory and Intel, where they managed to overclock an Intel Core i7 4960X CPU from a 3.6GHz base clock frequency up to 5.85GHz.

For this event the Core i7 4960X Extreme Edition processor was mounted on a soon to be released ASUS Rampage 4 Black Edition motherboard with Corsair Dominator Platinum 2666 MHz memory. In order to reach the clock frequency required to set benchmark records the specs on the CPU (Core i7 4960X) are adjusted to increase the clock frequency from a 3.6GHz base clock frequency up to 5.85GHz. Having the CPU overclocked to 5.86GHz generates heat and a hot CPU is an unstable CPU so in order to maintain this high frequency you need to keep the CPU cool, -190c cool, and to do that a little liquid nitrogen is required.

World records set at the event included:

- 3DMark 11 (entry) score: 38231 marks
- 3DMark 11 Performance score: 38227
- 3DMark 11 Firestrike score: 32268 marks
- Cinebench score (6-core): 17.65

And a new record was also set for overclocking memory as well, 16 GB of Corsairs Vengeance Xtreme memory was overclocked to a new world record of 3900MHz as measured by CPU-Z.
