Of course it goes that high in frequency : there's only one core active !

I like how after about every sentence, the marketing bullshit states excessively how stable this motherboard is, or how exciting this motherboard is. - whoop! Chinese marketing at its best.

I think someone got close to that using all 4 cores.

Mind you, AMD got theirs with only one module active.

The Poisoned Ivy

Oooh lookie here, it goes to 6.9GHz, fantastic! using what? LN2?

Its almost an un-debatable subject, throw in LN2 and don't worry about temps like the italians say 'forget about it'.

What I am trying to say is, take a look at the air cooled and water cooled reviews, Ivy Bridge SUCKS D*ck. Almost no headroom at all for overclocking, with the AMD bulldozer with all its short comings, will run with no heat problems at all.

Its a day of grief, when all the Chip makers fail at their design, the 3D transistors that INTEL so proudly boast became an Achilles heel, and AMD Cyborg made (Bulldozer was made using super computers) chip fell into a ditch.

Lets just stick with what we got right now, at least I know I didnt bought the wrong mother board.

i am sorry but ivy bridge does hve a lot of headroom for OC you just got to cool it. So here what you can do, you can hang on to the hope that Intel can somehow defy the laws of physics, and lower the temperature significantly.

Don't expect any future processor on the 22nm processor or below to run cooler than ivy does, perhaps maybe you'll gt a 10% heat reduction, but don't count on it any time soon.

The reason the temps are so high and there really isn't any heat is because of high leakage, high leakage is caused by the fact that at the 22nm level you are dealing with quantum mechanics and thus the uncertainty principle where you cannot know where certain sub atomic particles are at any give time, thus allowing them to go anywhere and cause leakage.

Good video.

They could increase the DIE surface.

how? By increasing the processing back to 32 or 45nm? lol or adding more transistors?

Lol they can increase temperature performance by simply making CPU and IHS contact more optimal.

ANyways I think this press release has to be the funniest of all time, i love how they say he was on top of the boards for 18 months straight, and he only OCed for 2 years. But what I like more is how they call OC an experiment, and how they call his scores a miracle hahahaha. Oh man they should have a USA marketing office re-write this for the US. It is a nic score tho, he worked really hard, but i don't think asrock motherboards are industry leading record breaking.

I might be mistaking alot here... But strongly doubt that the DIE is single layer... ;) It would be dead thin if it was, and well, a DIE isnt..
So, half the layer, and surface area will almost double.
