Objective:
Obtain the highest frequency possible in CPU-Z

Directions:
Post a CPU-Z Screenshot of your OC (see below for my submission - please follow this layout). Stability is not measured, just go for maximum clock speed. All you need to do is be able to grab a screenshot of your results. I can liken this test to a top fuel dragster. Your rig only needs to hold together long enough for you to get the required data! And be sure to have a beautiful girl set to your background if you want me to count your scores :)

How:
By ANY means possible. This is an unlimited class competition so there are no limitations on exotic cooling methods.

I will start this off with my trusty 9600KF where I hit 5.6GHz this morning, I know I wont win but it is the inspiration for this friendly competition. Lets see what you got!

EDIT: Please list your cooling method with your result!

Storm-Chaser, custom loop, 120mm + 360mm + large reservoir

background, please? only if it's not your private photo ;)

Hyper Disabled 10600K running in 9600K mode lol (6/6), could go only crying 5.1 GHz with some cheap $35 tower cooler, Asus Z490-P mobo:

All ready knowing this is a lost cause for me. Yet I will post the highest clock I have achieved on my old i7 980x while I am waiting for Zen 3 to be able to purchase.

4.75 ghz all core on a cpu running stock at base 3.33 ghz and boost all core 3.43 ghz. Aircooled and benchmark stable and all core and ht still active. Not just a max core clock run.

OK - I went and did a run last week with my dragster that showed how far it can go while doing an actual benchmark.
Enjoy!

Impressive! BUT I need to see this OC pass at least 24 hours of prime95 before you get my stamp of approval and before we can call this a legitimate overclock.

lol just kidding. just a dig at people who obsess over torture testing. :D
