    Here's the link for K|NGP|N's topic @ XS.

    And here's the CPU-Z validation:

    Disregard the 1st place as it's false:

    Liquid helium isn't cheap. I priced 100 liters at 1 thousand USD....If you watch when they are running that stuff they just let the tank run wide open.

    Very insane, VERY VERY AWESOME!

    This also puts the myth that duals clock better than quads to rest as well since the highest clock on a e8600 was something like 6777mhz

    It depends you could have one weaker core than the other core/cores/

    Indeed the chance of a slower core than the rest is twice as high as a dual but its all chance in the end. Sometimes you could get a dual that wont oc at all and a quad that wont oc at all.

    i still remember before phenom II release when AMD say the phenom II can overclock higher than 5GHz and many people don't believe them , now we say 7GHz that's great

    Nope: [​IMG]

    Not @ 7 GHz yet but, according to K|NGP|N, it seems it is achievable with that CPU.

    Apparently, the dude didn't have time to "properly push the CPU to it's limits" so it is possible.


    Remember: that 7127 MHz score is fake.

    It seems the dude is confusing P4's WR, which is over 8.1 GHz, with E8600 WR.

    Check my previous post: it has a pic with the current E8600 WR.

    so to get that speed on air cooling we'd need 10nm processes on a 16 core processor running at 0.2v - so in about 10 years then... but not with silicon...

    No that is a cedar mill Pentium 4. Its a single core. The world record for an e8600 is 6.777ghz.

    According to this, not that much really, which makes it even more impressive.

    Unless CPU-Z is reading the voltage wrong: i don't really know :(

    here is a Decent OC Database, just wonder how legit the OCs are

    but seriously an AMD Athlon XP Barton Core OC to 3.5GHz!?

    http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=59753

    jealous because i cant get mine to 2.4GHz and its a Mobility Athlon 2500+ (45w 133x14/266x7= 1867MHz oc to 200x11= 2200MHz=3200+)
