    GIGABYTE TECHNOLGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today announced the record highest validated CPU clock speed on the Intel Core i7 3770K processor using a GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H motherboard, as well as the new world record highest DDR3 memory speed using the GIGABYTE Z77X-U5H motherboard.

    The 7.0 GHz milestone was surpassed using an Intel 3rd generation Core i7 3770k processor (aka Ivy Bridge) by renowned overclocker HiCookie, pushing the GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H motherboard to a fully validated 7.03 GHz using liquid nitrogen cooling. This is regarded as the current #1 highest Ivy Bridge CPU frequency and a world record according to respected global overclocking website HWBot.org.

    Additionally, HiCookie has broken the current highest memory speed for the Intel Ivy Bridge platform, reaching an unprecedented 3280MHz with all 4 memory slots populated using the GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboards and G.Skill Trident X DDR3-2800 memory - also a new world record. This new record was achieved thanks in part to GIGABYTE’s engineering prowess and tried-and-true memory tuning capabilities.

    "These new world records highlight our belief that top notch quality and design deliver truly world-class, record breaking performance," commented Tim Handley, Deputy Director of Motherboard Marketing at GIGABYTE. "These new performance achievements come at a very opportune time as we prepare to introduce our next generation high-performance CPU power zone at Computex 2012, and we're expecting even better results from motherboard models with this new feature!"



    Validated World Records – Because Seeing is Believing
    These new world records announced today have been fully validated by CPUz and Canard PC, considered the standard validation mechanism for overclockers worldwide. Check out these new world records on HWBot.org by following the links below:

    Way to go HiCookie!
    Can't wait to see what he'll be able to pull off during the G.Skill competition in the coming week;)

    Yep! same goes for the FX & other CPU's with Extreme overclock , it's not a real fail but yeah! i would rather see all CPU's with the highest overclock with all cores enable as it should be , it wont go as high but be more impressive IMO

    It's over 9ghz right now... but officially it's 8.5ghz

    As for the Intel chip i am pretty sure they can reach/break the 7.5ghz or a bit more with some more patient , tweaks & lots, lots more money...:D

    That BD shot is fake, that is why HWbot wont accept it, and why it wasn't listed here. The dude who posted it on hwbot even added "_reliable" to his name to make you think its from a reliable source, but it isn't.

    You can't just make a user name out of no where, and grab CPUz frequency WR with 500mhz higher than the second lowest score lol, it just doesn't make any sense and should raise red flags.

    Anyways very nice job cookie!!!!!!

    :p

    Different boards for each record.

    Other one is only $20 more though.

    Yea they OC the same, I think they just wanted to show diversity.

    What is impressive is that 6-phase VRM.

    Could have pulled 8Ghz had Intel not messed with the heat transfer ;D

    Although, I'm sure he probably popped it off and put on his own design.

    I would love to see the results on a board like mine Gigabyte Z77 G.1 Sniper 3. If he can get 7ghz on a UD3 he should be able to beat that by a decent amount on a better board.

    The limitation is still going to be CPU multiplier. He was only at a measly 111 bus ;). Ivy bridge raised the max from 57 in sandy to 63. Hes at 63x111.

    thermal watts?

    I'm wondering, how many watts of thermal energy are being generated at those speeds?

    Meh, I'm no enthusiast either then, I gather. This "one core overclock" thing is akin to hot dog eating contests - sure you can score a "world record" in it but it has no meaningful purpose and aside from few obese teens nobody really cares about your "record".

    It would be a different story alltogether if they made it the highest performing chip following whichever approach (either by pushing a single core so fast that it would outrun 4 cores, by netting maximum results using more than 1 core at higher clock speed ... or by unlocking cores that manufacturer locked down). There is a genuine need for more processing power but there is little need for inflated numbers that serve no use and I'd be really enthusiastic if they managed to reliably push performance far above what most of us can reach (4.5 GHz with all cores enabled).

    They do this on a regular basis. You do realize these well known overclockers are known for their benchmarks, right?

    Also, from a future looking standpoint, a single core benchmark like this can be very indicative of later yields; The bottleneck is an artificial multiplier, not the actual chip. While this may not be useful for you, you don't need to worry about the maximum multiplier on a CPU.
